Darren Sproles - RBPosted 7/16/18 12:32pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles is expected to see the field less as he heads into his final NFL season, primarily due to the emergence of backup RB Corey Clement. Sproles should still be used consistently on special teams, however.
Huddle Up: Sproles has been a PPR sleeper for the majority of his career, but he'll be playing third fiddle to Jay Ajayi and Clement in what he said will be his last year in the NFL. The 35-year-old Sproles still has gas left in the tank, but this car is only worth purchasing in later rounds of PPR leagues.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 7/16/18 12:24pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi is expected to see more touches in 2018 as he enters a contract year. In seven games with the Eagles a year ago, Ajayi averaged 10 carries per game.
Huddle Up: The Eagles' backfield is crowded, but Ajayi will be the main guy as long as he is healthy and producing. Corey Clement and Darren Sproles will take away a lot of his PPR value, but Ajayi is a prime low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 candidate.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 6/6/18 9:50am ET
Updating previousr reports, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) has been cleared for seven-on-seven work, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Wentz is expected to be ready for the start of the season, but he could be limited leading up to the opener. He's a high-end QB1 option, but there are certainly safer picks in his range.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 6/5/18 12:02pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) is expected to be healthy enough to play by Week 1, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
Huddle Up: As long as Wentz avoids the dreaded setback he's on pace to start the season. Caution needs to be taken, but there's good enough reason for Wentz to be drafted as a QB1 and as high as a top-five quarterback.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 5/31/18 6:26pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi said he wants to be a 'workhorse' for the offense this year and show what he is capable of doing in a big role.
Huddle Up: Ajayi isn't going to be an every-down back for the Eagles, but with LeGarrette Blount out of the mix, he could see most of the carries on early downs. He is a low-end RB2 candidate.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 5/28/18 7:53am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) remains out of practice in organized team activities.
Huddle Up: Jeffery should be ready to go at some point in the preseason, and he'll be a mid-to-low WR2 in fantasy.
Corey Clement - RBPosted 5/25/18 3:40pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Corey Clement said he hopes to be more involved in the offense this upcoming season. 'I definitely want to get more touches, more carries, more catches out of the backfield this year. I want to be more of a key contributor. I don't think that's being greedy. I have a job to do and that's to put this team in the best position possible [to win],' Clement said.
Huddle Up: Clement likely will be competing for the No. 2 running back during training camp and could see a decent amount of touches if he wins the job. He has a chance to be a late-round option in deeper leagues and point-per-reception leagues.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 5/20/18 12:50pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi played fewer than half the team's snaps in the playoffs, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.
Huddle Up: It's not surprising from the standpoint Ajayi arrived at midseason. It's a bit surprising from the perspective that Ajayi is clearly the Eagles' best back, but Philadelphia seems pretty content with its committee backfield approach. Even with the departure of LeGarrette Blount and an offseason to learn coach Doug Pederson's offense, the ex-Miami Dolphin is probably going to struggle seeing enough consistent playing time to be a low-end fantasy RB2.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 5/19/18 7:13pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) will have a big role in the offense, despite being 34 years old and coming off of a torn anterior cruciate ligament, in the opinion of Eliot Shorr-Parks, of NJ.com. Sproles was not signed to be a feel-good story, according to Shorr-Parks, and it would not be a surprising to see the veteran near or even atop the depth chart.
Huddle Up: Sproles might have a little gas in the tank for PPR gamers, but this is a crowded backfield. With Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement being more explosive, Sproles could be relegated third-down work and have an erratic role. Treat him as a roster-filling RB4 or No. 5
Donnel Pumphrey - RBPosted 5/19/18 7:23pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Donnel Pumphrey (hamstring) missed the 2017 season with a torn hamstring and will be fighting for a roster spot this summer. NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks believes it is silly to write off Pumphrey after just 26 preseason carries, because the 2017 rookie looked dynamic at times in practice and bulked up, per reports. Even still, Pumphrey faces an uphill battle to make the final roster.
Huddle Up: Pumphrey has no immediate fantasy appeal, unless he manages to unexpectedly secure a job among the top three at his position. Darren Sproles is his fiercest competition for a roster spot, but Corey Clement will also enter ahead of him.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 5/11/18 11:51am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) has yet to be medically cleared, but the team is 'highly encouraged' by the progress he has made in his rehab from a torn ACL and LCL in his left knee. Nevertheless, head coach Doug Pederson made it clear he has no intention to rush Wentz back, telling reporters his quarterback will be 'ready when he's ready, and when we feel he's ready.'
Huddle Up: The Eagles are keeping Nick Foles around just in case, but the news has been consistently good regarding the likelihood Wentz will be ready for the season opener. Assuming that is the case, he should be one of the first five quarterbacks to come off the board in fantasy drafts.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 5/7/18 7:26am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) sent video to quarterback gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux, and his mechanics are sound, according to sources. He is throwing the same or better than before the knee injury.
Huddle Up: Wentz is an upper-tier QB1 option, but the jury is still out whether he'll be ready for Week 1 or not. Monitor his progress in camp.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 4/30/18 2:31pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor's fifth-year option was exercised Monday, April 30, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Agholor had a breakout year in 2017 and finished with 768 yards and eight touchdowns during the regular season. He should continue to have a solid role in the passing game and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver in all leagues next season.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 4/28/18 4:47pm ET
Free-agent RB Darren Sproles (Eagles) agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, April 28. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Sproles likely will see most of his touches in the passing game as a receiver out of the backfield. Owners on point-per-reception leagues can consider Sproles a No. 4 running back in 2018.
Dallas Goedert - TEPosted 4/27/18 5:21pm ET
The Philadelphia Eagles selected South Dakota State TE Dallas Goedert with the 49th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday April 27.
Huddle Up: The Eagles released Brent Celek this offseason, so Goedert likely will take over the No. 2 tight end role for the Eagles. He should see a decent amount of targets as a rookie but may not be a great option in standard leagues. He will have some value in keeper leagues.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 4/20/18 1:27pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles agreed to a revised contract Friday, April 20, that includes a mutual option for the 2019 season, according to sources. Foles will have a chance to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason if he declines the option.
Huddle Up: Foles led the Eagles to a Super Bowl win this past season and could be the starter Week 1 depending on Carson Wentz's healthy. Owners will need to monitor the situation over the next several months because Foles would be a decent fantasy option if he starts a few games.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 4/18/18 4:43pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) said he does not have a definite timetable for his return but does intend to play Week 1.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor his progress during training camp to see if he will be ready for the start of the regular season. Wentz should be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when he is healthy, but owners should have a solid backup on their roster in case Wentz misses a few games.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 4/17/18 12:41pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) said he has started running in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn lateral collateral ligament. The quarterback added that he feels good and is happy where he's at in his progress.
Huddle Up: It's still unclear whether or not Wentz will be good to go for Week 1, but we'll take good news. Wentz was debatably the most productive fantasy quarterback before suffering his gruesome injuries. If he doesn't see any setbacks between now and Week 1 he should be one of the first quarterbacks selected.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 4/13/18 6:49am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Mike Wallace will earn a $585,000 incentive Monday, April 16, if he weighs less than 250 pounds.
Huddle Up: Wallace is listed at 200 pounds, so there's no reason to fear that he has been on an offseason binge. He'll fit in the WR4 or WR5 range in fantasy.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 4/7/18 6:47pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) needs to think about his longevity, according to head coach Doug Pederson, and Pederson said he is going to talk with Wentz about ways he can help ensure that he has a long career.
Huddle Up: Wentz has vowed not to tone back his style following his knee injury last season, but unless injuries start to become a pattern, what happened last year shouldn't hurt his fantasy stock. He's expected to be ready for the start of the year and can be trusted as a lower-end QB1 in all formats.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 4/6/18 6:23pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery's (shoulder) right arm remains in a sling and is not expected to participate in OTAs, but he is hoping to be ready for the preseason.
Huddle Up: Jeffery is expected to ready to roll for Week 1, and after hauling in nine touchdowns in his first year in Philadelphia and three more scores in the playoffs, he is back in the WR2 mix heading into 2018.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 3/27/18 11:46am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will not be traded this offseason, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Foles will back up Carson Wentz as long as Wentz is healthy enough to start. Unfortunately, Foles won't hold much fantasy value as long as Wentz can stay on the field. He can be drafted almost strictly as an insurance policy for Wentz owners.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 3/24/18 6:49pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said there has not been an offer made that would even tempt the team into trading QB Nick Foles.
Huddle Up: Unless another team blows the Eagles away with compensation, Philadelphia will likely hang on to Foles in case Carson Wentz isn't ready to return from knee surgery by the start of next season.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 3/19/18 9:58pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) posted video of himself throwing inside the team's practice facility Monday, March 19, as he 'appears to be making some significant strides' in his rehab from a torn ACL and LCL. He's still aiming to return for the season opener.
Huddle Up: All indications are that Wentz will indeed be ready for the start of the season, which means he can be drafted as your standard QB1 after the sensational sophomore showing he exhibited this past year. Prior to going down with a season-ending injury, Wentz had posted a 101.9 passer rating in 13 games, as he finished with 3,296 yards and 33 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 3/18/18 3:57pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is due a $3 million roster bonus on Sunday, March 18.
Huddle Up: Foles was going to receive the bonus either way, but now this counts against the team's salary cap since Philadelphia did not trade him before the bonus kicked in. The Super Bowl LII MVP will serve as the primary backup to Carson Wentz in 2018, and should see plenty of work in training camp and the preseason as Wentz makes his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Since Wentz's injury occurred so late in the season, it's possible Foles could start the season as the team's starter, too, which might be why the organization was hesitant to deal him.
LeGarrette Blount - RBPosted 3/16/18 6:37pm ET
Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Eagles) has agreed to a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions worth $4.5 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Detroit's ground game has been miserable in recent years, and Blount should immediately become the lead back in between the tackles and near the goal line. He could sneak into RB2 territory.
LeGarrette Blount - RBPosted 3/14/18 7:17pm ET
Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount is scheduled to visit the Detroit Lions on Friday, March 16.
Huddle Up: It would be a good fit for Blount to land with the Lions, who have not had a desirable running game in years. In fact, they just produced the league's worst rush attack this past season, so it's a sure bet that Detroit will do something to address this obvious need. Blount saw his numbers go down in 2017 but he could potentially be a legit RB2 as the Lions' lead back.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 3/13/18 8:10am ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton agreed to a four-year, $32 million deal with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, March 13.
Huddle Up: Burton was starting to come into his own this season, and he'll have room to spread his wings in a different uniform. Burton is a sneaky TE2 with some upside.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 3/12/18 10:21pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton has drawn interest from the Detroit Lions, who are being considered as one of the 'serious suitors' for his services.
Huddle Up: With Detroit likely to move on from Eric Ebron, this move would make sense, though it's hard to determine if Burton could be a breakout candidate if he joins the Lions. After all, Ebron, despite his great physical gifts, never realized his potential with Matthew Stafford under center, so the same underachieving fate may await Burton if he arrives in the Motor City.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 3/7/18 2:53pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton is expected to receive interest from the San Francisco 49ers during free agency.
Huddle Up: The 49ers have George Kittle and Garrett Celek on the roster, but Burton likely would be a better option in the passing game if he joins the 49ers. Burton should receive a nice contract in free agency and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end for fantasy owners depending on his team.
