DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 10/11/15 9:50pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray had 20 carries for 83 yards and seven catches for 37 yards in a 39-17 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Murray came in with 47 yards on a season, so it was nice to finally see him get going. Murray will take on the Giants' No. 1 ranked rush defense next week.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 10/5/15 9:01am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray said he's not getting enough touches in the offense Sunday, Oct. 4. 'No, I'm not,' Murray said. 'I don't think I am. It's how the plays are being called. I love this offense. I love playing with these guys. It's just how it is.'
Huddle Up: Murray has done little with the touches he has received, and the Eagles' only win came in the game in which Murray did not play at all. Also, complaining about the system might not be the best way to succeed in Chip Kelly's regime.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 10/4/15 9:46pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray had eight carries for 36 yards and two catches for 12 yards in a 23-20 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 4, and after the game, Murray said he was not being given enough touches.
Huddle Up: Murray is right and the Eagles have to figure out what they wan to do with their running game. While the numbers suggest that Murray isn't doing much with his carries, he's a high-volume back. He might not do much with his first eight carries but by carry 25 he could have 120 yards. If Chip Kelly paid Murray all that money to give him a few carries a game, he made a mistake.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 10/2/15 5:01pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 2, and is listed as questionable for the Week 4 game against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Murray has got in full two practices after bring limited Wednesday and would appear to be on track to play after sitting out Week 3. Of course, check back before kickoff before inserting him into your lineup.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 10/2/15 8:20pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring), who is questionable for Week 4 against the Washington Redskins, is expected to play, according to a source informed of the situation.
Huddle Up: Ryan Mathews earned more touches after a strong performance last week but Murray will still be the starter if healthy. However, Murray is a risky RB2 because of the crowded Eagles' backfield.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 10/1/15 4:38pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) said he felt better Thursday, Oct. 1 and was a full participant in practice.
Huddle Up: If Murray can maintain the momentum Friday, it'll be another strong step in the right direction, but it still sounds like it might come down to a game-time decision Sunday morning.
Kiko Alonso - LBPosted 9/30/15 1:46pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso had arthroscopic surgery earlier this week on his left knee and may miss up to another month as completes rehab.
Huddle Up: It's not ideal for the Eagles or Alonso's IDP-league owners but it certainly couldve been worse. We'll see if he can return before Philly's Week 8 bye.
Cody Parkey - PKPosted 9/29/15 5:15pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles PK Cody Parkey (groin) said he tore all three muscles in his groin.
Huddle Up: Yikes -- that has us cringing just reading about it. But in case you missed it, former Dolphins' kicker Caleb Sturgis is now the new Philly PK.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 9/29/15 6:45pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor is grinding his way through similar to how WR Jordan Matthews did early in the 2014 season, according to offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: With Sam Bradford's slow start, the entire passing game isn't where it needs to be, and Agholor could be a player to grab and stash with better days surely ahead for the first-round pick.
Cody Parkey - PKPosted 9/28/15 2:51pm ET
Free-agent PKs Billy Cundiff (Panthers), Nick Novak (Chargers) and Caleb Sturgis (Dolphins) are among the kickers that are working out for the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, Sept. 28. PK Cody Parkey (groin) is dealing with a groin injury.
Huddle Up: Parkey was injured in Sunday's game and won't play this week. The Eagles' offense got going against the Jets but there are better fantasy options out there right now at the kicker position.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 9/27/15 9:31pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews had 25 carries for 108 yards and two catches for 20 yards and a touchdown in a 24-17 win over the New York Jets in Week 3.
Huddle Up: DeMarco Murray could be back next week but Mathews has no doubt earned a larger role in the offense after his performance on Sunday. The Eagles' backfield is something to monitor closely over the next couple of weeks given Murray's struggles in the first two games.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 9/25/15 12:03am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford said he is 'very confident' that the offense will turn things around. 'I've got no doubt in my mind,' Bradford said. 'I think you look at some of the things that we did during training camp, some of the things that we did during preseason, what some of these guys have done here in the past, and we know that we're capable of it.'
Huddle Up: Bradford and the Eagles might eventually get things turned around, but it's going to be a tough task getting that started in Week 3 on the road vs. a Jets defense that's been ferocious so far.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 9/25/15 2:17pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) will play Sunday, Sept. 27, against the New York Jets, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Murray missed practice Thursday, and while he returned to full participation Friday, he's a risky fantasy start given the chance for re-aggravation, his slow start and the matchup with the Jets' top-notch defense. Proceed with ample caution.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 9/24/15 12:59pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) won't practice Thursday, Sept. 24. Head coach Chip Kelly said the next two days will determine whether Murray plays Sunday, Sept. 27.
Huddle Up: As expected, Murray will sit out Thursday, but it at least sounds like his fantasy owners will have a pretty good idea whether he's playing before Sunday rolls around. Ryan Mathews would get the start if Murray can't go with Darren Sproles being involved as usual.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 9/23/15 3:31pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco left the team's Wednesday, Sept. 23 practice early with a hamstring injury. Murray's post-practice media availability Wednesday was canceled, and he was not in the locker room when reporters were allowed into the locker room. The severity of the injury was not known. He's expected to have an MRI on the hamstring, a league source told ESPN's Adam Caplan.
Huddle Up: As if his 11 rushing yards in two games wasn't enough to concern his fantasy owners, we now have a hammy injury requiring an MRI. Yikes. Stay tuned ...
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 9/22/15 4:28pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will be the starting quarterback in Week 3 against the New York Jets. Head coach Chip Kelly expressed confidence in Bradford.
Huddle Up: All the preseason hype and excitement over the Philly offense has netted all of 34 points so far for the Eagles and 37 fantasy points for Bradford, placing him 22nd among QBs. The team's anemic running game, poor offensive line play and some untimely drops by pass-catchers certainly haven't helped, but Bradford's first order of business is taking better care of the ball as his five turnovers, including four interceptions, trail only Andrew Luck's six among QBs.
Kiko Alonso - LBPosted 9/22/15 4:28pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso (knee) won't play in Week 3 and could still opt for season-ending surgery on the partial tear of his left anterior cruciate ligament.
Huddle Up: Just the latest hurdle for the star-crossed Alonso, who missed the entire 2014 season with an ACL tear in the same knee. With Alonso and fellow ILB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) out, rookie Jordan Hicks saw significant playing time against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and Hicks and the just-signed Najee Goode are in line to see plenty of action in Week 3 against the Jets with Kendricks also expected to miss the game.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 9/20/15 11:44pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray had 13 carries for two yards and five catches for 53 yards in a 20-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Murray has now been invisible through two games. He did score twice last week to save his fantasy day but owners didn't get bailed out against the Cowboys. It won't get any easier next week for Murray when he takes on the Jets' defense.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 9/16/15 2:13pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (ankle) is practicing Wednesday, Sept. 16, and moving around fine. Neither ankle appears to be taped.
Huddle Up: Well, Bradford appears to have made it through one game no worse for wear, and now it's on Sunday's NFC East showdown against the Cowboys.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 9/15/15 9:50am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor managed just one catch for five yards in Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons Monday, Sept. 14.
Huddle Up: The Eagles have a plethora of targets and seem determined to work all of them into the mix. So while Agholor is a starter, week-to-week consistency looks like it will be a battle.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 9/15/15 9:50am ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz had three receptions for 24 yards in the Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons Monday, Sept. 14.
Huddle Up: Not a big day for Ertz, but the fact that he was on the field at all after missing the preseason with a groin injury should make those who invested a draft pick in him feel better.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 9/15/15 4:34pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (undisclosed) had precautionary X-rays after the game Monday, Sept. 14, and he said everything is fine. Bradford wouldn't disclose what body part the X-rays were taken on.
Huddle Up: Hey, we know, it's Bradford, but it doesn't sound like anything more than a precautionary scan and he should be good to go for Sunday's showdown against the Cowboys.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 9/14/15 6:53pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (groin) is active Monday, Sept. 14, against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Ertz has been dealing with a groin issue all preseason, but is there if you need him, although we don't really know how healthy he is. Also, the continued presence of fellow TE Brent Celek presents the potential for fantasy frustration.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 9/11/15 6:30pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (groin) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: Ertz continues to look iffy at best and considering the Eagles don't play until Monday night, it's time for his fantasy owners to get another TE in their Week 1 lineups.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 9/8/15 10:15pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (groin) has been cleared to return to practice, according to a source. Ertz is not guaranteed to practice, but if he does, he will not be restricted. His Week 1 status is still uncertain.
Huddle Up: Good initial news here with Ertz, but much still remains up in the air, and if he's your starting tight end, get another plan at the ready for Week 1.
Tim Tebow - QBPosted 9/5/15 12:48pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Tim Tebow was released Saturday, Sept. 5, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Despite a pretty good showing this preseason against third and fourth stringers, Tebow didn't make the Eagles' 53-man roster. The Eagles opt to go with two quarterbacks. Sam Bradford will start and Mark Sanchez will be the backup. Tebow could be headed back to TV as a college football analyst.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 9/3/15 10:52pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (groin) is unsure about his Week 1 status after missing most of the preseason and could be limited to passing downs and two-tight end sets when he returns from injury.
Huddle Up: Ertz was projected as a TE1 in most rankings this summer, but between the injury and his lack of improvement, it looks like old standby Brent Celek is the Philly tight end you want to own.
Riley Cooper - WRPosted 9/1/15 4:40pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper doesn't have a catch and hasn't been targeted this preseason.
Huddle Up: Cooper has started all three of Philly's preseason tilts but clearly has fallen behind second-year wideout Jordan Matthews and rookie Nelson Agholor, and free-agent signee Miles Austin looks to have gained ground as well. In short, Cooper likely will remain a part of Philly's WR rotation, but he's a long ways away from the surprise fantasy force he was in 2013 when he posted a 47-835-8 stat line.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 8/30/15 4:05pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford completed all 10 of his passes for 121 yards and three touchdowns during the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 29. 'I thought he was really poised out there, had a really good command of what we were doing, really located the football. I thought he played really well,' head coach Chip Kelly noted.
Huddle Up: With a league-high 115 points so far -- no other team has more than 88 -- the Philly offense has been the talk of the preseason, and Bradford could prove to be one of the all-time fantasy draft steals at his current ADP of 128 (16th among QBs). And, of course, we must qualify that with the obligatory "if he can stay healthy."
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 8/28/15 12:04am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray said he doesn't know what the running back rotation will be this year, but he said he doesn't expect to 'alternate series' with RB Ryan Mathews.
Huddle Up: As long as he remains healthy, Murray will be the lead back in what should be one of the most explosive offenses -- and that's certainly enough to warrant RB1 status -- but Mathews also will get his share of work and the argument can be made that he's the most valuable No. 2 RB/handcuff in fantasy.
