Darren Sproles - RBPosted 10/21/14 2:53pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: According to reports, Sproles didn't appear to be limited during the time the media got to observe practice Tuesday, and he may not end up missing any time thanks to the team's well-timed bye week. But definitely see how the rest of the practice week goes for the RB before getting too excited.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 10/13/14 10:35am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy carried 22 times for a season-high 149 yards in Week 6 against the New York Giants, although he was held out of the end zone again. He also chipped in with two receptions for five yards.
Huddle Up: It wasn't the breakout game McCoy owners have been hoping for, but Shady finally racking up some yardage was a welcome sight. With Darren Sproles a little nicked up, McCoy might see a few more opportunities to dig his way out of his early-season slump.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 10/13/14 10:35am ET
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) had the stability of his left medial collateral and anterior cruciate ligament tested by a team orthopedist, and sideline reporter Michele Tafoya said 'whatever news he delivered' to Sproles reportedly made him 'unhappy.'
Huddle Up: Sproles was able to walk to the locker room under his own power, and after the game he told reporters he would be "all right". Plus, Philly has a bye in Week 7 so he'll have an additional week to heal. However, Sproles' fantasy owners might want to look at their Sproles replacement as a potential two- or three-week fix, just in case.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 10/13/14 12:46pm ET
Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) is believed to have avoided an anterior cruciate ligament tear. However, he's expected to miss a few weeks due to the knee injury.
Huddle Up: Reports say Sproles is expected to miss one game. It's good news because the injury looked serious at the time. Sproles should return in 1-2 weeks based on early reports, so fantasy owners can breathe a little easier today.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 10/6/14 10:36am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy took himself out of the game in the fourth quarter Sunday, Oct. 5, according to head coach Chip Kelly. The team was trying to ice the game with a six-point lead.
Huddle Up: Kelly glossed over the situation by noting that Philly has two feature backs in McCoy and Darren Sproles, but neither Kelly nor fantasy owners can be happy with McCoy opting out at crunch time--especially when he's underachieved mightily to this point.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 10/3/14 4:21pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 3, and is probable for Week 5 against the St. Louis Rams.
Huddle Up: Bright green light for Maclin, who trails only Jordy Nelson for the most targets among all WRs.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 10/1/14 4:10pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Hammy issues are always worth monitoring, but no worries for now for the WR who ranks second in targets (47) and sixth in total fantasy points (54) heading into Week 5.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 9/30/14 10:45am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has completed 25.6 percent of his throws over 20 yards this season. He is on pace to make 156 attempts of 20 or more yards. He had 55 attempts and completed 45 percent of them last season.
Huddle Up: At least some of Foles' struggles with the deep ball can be traced back to the offensive line, which has been ravaged by injury and suspension thus far this year. Foles' deep-ball issues are just one of the issues Philly's offense is facing, but Foles' numbers were successfully hiding the problem until the loss to San Francisco last week.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 9/30/14 4:19pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin did not participate in practice Tuesday, Sept. 30. Maclin said he is fine.
Huddle Up: There are lingering durability concerns with Maclin, but it doesn't sound like anything to worry about with the WR who ranks second among all wideouts with 47 targets and sixth with 54 fantasy points.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 9/29/14 10:17am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy had 10 carries for 17 yards Sunday, Sept. 28, and has 29 carries for 39 yards in the last two weeks. 'We got whooped up front,' head coach Chip Kelly said. 'We're not very good up front right now. We've got a lot of guys banged up. That's not an excuse, it's just the reality.'
Huddle Up: The Eagles have been dealing with injuries and suspensions to what has been, when intact, one of the better lines in football. They were unable to run the ball against San Francisco, and while it's easy to peg Philly as a passing team the Chip Kelly offense is predicated on success in the ground game. On the bright side, the Eagles should get some of their missing linemen back this week.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 9/26/14 2:02pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (oblique) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 26, and is probable for Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: The rookie, currently Philly's No. 3 WR, will go against the Niners, trying to follow up on his breakout 8-59-2 Week 3 performance.
Riley Cooper - WRPosted 9/24/14 12:07am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper leads all wide receivers in routes run, according to Cecil Lammey of ESPN Denver, but has totaled just nine catches for 71 yards.
Huddle Up: More alarming for Cooper owners is the Sunday performance of rookie Jordan Matthews who nearly matched Cooper's season totals in one game, catching 8 passes for 59 yards, including a pair of TDs. Cooper remains the starter in two-WR sets, but any more games like Matthews had on Sunday might result in a reversal of roles.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 9/24/14 4:51pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is not concerned with his rushing numbers from Week 3, and said he does not feel like he is struggling after posting 22 yards on 19 carries. "I don't think I''m struggling at all," McCoy said. "I don't know what you mean by that."
Huddle Up: McCoy did return to the contest after a concussion scare but there's no sugarcoating the 22-total yard performance -- he also had 1 catch for 0 yards -- which was his worst outing since his rookie year of 2009. Now, the task Sunday is trying to rebound vs. a Niners' defense which has surrendered the third-fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 9/16/14 12:23am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles had seven receptions for a career-high 152 yards in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Sept. 15. He also had four carries for 26 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Philly wanted to get Sproles the ball in space against the Indy LBs, and the plan worked to perfection with the RB averaging 21.7 yards per catch with a long gain of 57. He wound up easily outgaining starter LeSean McCoy (178-101) and will continue to have fantasy value as a RB2 or flex option, especially in PPR leagues, although this likely will turn out to be his best total-yardage game of the season.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 9/9/14 2:35pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews is now officially ahead of WR Brad Smith as the No. 3 wide receiver on the depth chart.
Huddle Up: Intrepid fantasy owners havebeen banking on the rookie's upside and potential since the draft, and believe there are better days ahead after his 4-target, 2-catch, 37-yard outing in Week 1. Definitely swoop him up if you need WR help and he's there for the plucking on your waiver wire.
Riley Cooper - WRPosted 9/3/14 5:37pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: The week is off to a good start for Cooper, who is coming off a lost preseason with no receptions. See if the momentum continues throughout the week.
Kenjon Barner - RBPosted 9/2/14 3:09pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Sunday, Aug. 31, after he was waived/injured Saturday, Aug. 30.
Huddle Up: The speedy Barner gets a year in the Philly system to learn the Darren Sproles role. Makes for an intriguing dynasty league deep stash.
Matthew Tucker - RBPosted 8/31/14 5:32pm ET
The Philadelphia Eagles have added RB Matthew Tucker to their practice squad.
Huddle Up: A fantasy name to remember down the road as the 2013 undrafted free agent rushed for 4 TDs and led all RBs with 36 fantasy points this preseason.
Arrelious Benn - WRPosted 8/29/14 4:53pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Arrelious Benn (back) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Aug. 29.
Huddle Up: Benn has been placed on the short-term IR, meaning he'll be eligible to return after Week 6, but he'll be flying well below the fantasy radar barring a rash of injuries hitting the Philly wideouts.
Alex Henery - PKPosted 8/29/14 8:49pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles PK Alex Henery is expected to be cut, as two individuals with knowledge of the situation said Friday, Aug. 29, that PK Cody Parkey has landed a spot on the 53-man roster.
Huddle Up: Parkey went 3-for-3 in field goals Thursday night, including hitting two attempts from beyond 50 yards. That impressive performance likely secured his roster spot. Parkey will be a solid fantasy option in the Eagles' high-scoring offense, while Henery will look to hook on elsewhere.
Kenjon Barner - RBPosted 8/28/14 10:54pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner's X-rays on his injured right ankle came back negative, but he did not return to the team's preseason finale.
Huddle Up: The newly acquired Barner had 5 carries for 21 yards and a catch for minus-4 before the injury, but the negative X-ray doesn't necessarily mean Barner escaped serious injury, either. Keep an eye out for updates on the injury's severity.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 8/27/14 3:32pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz is expected to be more involved in the passing game this season and has shown the confidence to be a solid pass catcher, according to tight ends coach Ted Williams. 'He's one of the best route-runners I've ever seen. He takes a lot of pride in that. He has a lot of confidence. He's hard to defeat, because he doesn't take defeat very well. He feels, 'You can't cover me,'' Williams said. Williams said the team can throw when they are in a two-tight end set and that Ertz can line up at tight end, in the slot or as an outside receiver.
Huddle Up: Ertz came on down the stretch last season as a rookie and currently is the 11th TE being selected, on average, in fantasy drafts. He's definitely a TE to target if you're one of the last GMs to address the position in a 10- or 12-team league.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 8/25/14 10:34am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (thumb, toe) said he will be fine for Week 1 after suffering a thumb injury in the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21. McCoy also said that a toe injury that kept him out of a practice last week was 'feeling good.'
Huddle Up: No reason for the Eagles to trot McCoy out this week, so he'll have ample time to rest his sore toe and thumb and be ready for the regular season opener.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 8/23/14 3:24pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) practiced Saturday, Aug. 23, after spraining his thumb during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: McCoy left Thursday night's preseason game but he's obviously fine. There's no reason for fantasy owners to worry about McCoy's health going forward.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 8/22/14 9:21am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) said he expects to be ready for the regular season after spraining his right thumb during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: McCoy wasn't likely to play in the final preseason game anyway, so he'll have time to rest his thumb and toe and get ready for the games that count.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 8/22/14 2:03pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 19 of 29 passes for 179 yards with one touchdown and one interception during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21. He led the offense to three scoring drives in the first half.
Huddle Up: Foles currently owns the sixth-highest ADP (59) among QBs, and is firmly in charge of an innovative Philly offense that should again prove to be one of the league's best this season.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 8/21/14 8:54pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy was taken into the lockerroom during the first quarter of a preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21 to get X-rays on his right thumb. Results of the X-ray are not yet known.
Huddle Up: McCoy, one of the handful of elite fantasy players, was seen heading off the field after scoring on a well-executed 22-yard screen pass against the Steelers. McCoy was dealing with a foot injury earlier in the week, but that didn't seem to be an issue as he had 4 rushes for 24 yards and 2 catches for 26 yards after scoring the TD. He was later shown on the sideline, but there has been no further word about the thumb.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 8/21/14 10:20pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy's X-rays on his right thumb came back negative, but he will not return to the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: That noise you heard was the collective sigh of relief coming from McCoy owners, who are hoping the next time they see the RB in uniform is for the Sept. 7 season opener against the Jaguars.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 8/21/14 10:20pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin walked off the field under his own power after falling and clutching his right knee during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: The incident definitely looked scary as the wideout fell on his own and immediately grabbed the knee, but he was back in catching passes shortly after. In short, disaster averted.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 8/20/14 10:33am ET
Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (toe) has a painful condition similar to turf toe that flared up last week. He had an MRI and an X-ray on the toe, and he even had conversations about shutting it down if the pain became unbearable.
Huddle Up: Ruh-roh. McCoy is a top-three fantasy pick, and if there's already talk in the preseason about shutting him down... well, that's going to take a bite out of his fantasy value. We've seen turf toe bring down backs before, so it's most definitely a situation that warrants the rapt attention of the fantasy world.
