Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/18/19 10:05am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles might have played his last game with the Eagles, and the first key date in that process arrives Feb. 10 -- one month before the start of the new league year -- when the Eagles must decide if they're going to pick up Foles' $20 million contract option for 2019. If so, Foles has five days to decide if he wants to void the option.
Huddle Up: If Foles voids his option, he can't be traded so expect the two sides to work out a mutual agreement -- perhaps a contract extension -- and then Philly trades Foles to a team which has been won over by Foles' performance the last two seasons. Stay tuned ...
Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/16/19 12:00pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is expected to be of interest to the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason. Jaguars new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo is already familiar and connected with Foles as he served as the Eagles offensive coordinator from 2016 to 2017.
Huddle Up: Foles to the Jaguars would make a lot of sense with Blake Bortles not cutting it, Foles deserving a starting gig and the DeFilippo connection. As for fantasy purposes, it would be safer to draft Foles as a QB2 if he did land in Jacksonville or elsewhere, although he does have a QB1 ceiling.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 1/15/19 9:06am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) is the team's 'starting quarterback going forward ,' head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday, Jan. 16, at the team's season-ending news conference.
Huddle Up: As expected, the Eagles remain fully committed to Wentz even though he's been unable to finish each of the last two seasons. Look for Nick Foles to return on the final year of his current deal and be dealt if Philly can receive any kind of decent return in a trade.
Golden Tate - WRPosted 1/15/19 9:24am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate's trade-deadline acquisition from the Detroit Lions 'no question' worked out the way the Eagles hoped it would, general manager Howie Roseman said Tuesday, Jan. 15.
Huddle Up: It didn't exactly work out for Tate's fantasy owners, who saw the wideout catch only 30-of-44 targets for 278 yards and a TD in eight regular-season games with the Eagles. Tate added seven catches for 64 yards and a TD in two playoff contests, but there's little doubt his fantasy-WR stock will be down next summer.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/15/19 10:14am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is a player the team would like to have return even though Foles can buy out of the final year of his contract if the Eagles pick up his 2019 option. 'We would love to keep Nick Foles,' Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said Tuesday, Jan. 15, at the team's year-end news conference. 'You talk about a guy we've drafted here and grown incredibly close with. Certainly, as we go into the substance of those discussions, no question ... we'd love to keep him.'
Huddle Up: With the Eagles already saying earlier Tuesday that they remain fully committed to Carson Wentz as their starting quarterback, Foles appears to be luxury who will become too expensive to retain. The ideal situation for Philly might be retaining or placing the franchise tag on Foles and then find a team willing to to pay the price in a trade.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 1/13/19 4:57pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz registered five receptions for 50 yards on eight targets in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Ertz pulled down 116 balls in the regular season, good for second in the NFL, while adding 1,163 yards and eight touchdowns. He'll be one of the top two tight ends off the board in the early round on Draft Day 2019 in most fantasy leagues.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 1/13/19 4:53pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles finished with three runs for just four yards in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game while adding three grabs for 21 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Sproles continues to defy Father Time, as there aren't many running backs able to do what he can at 35 years old. He is likely to be back in 2019, in Philadelphia or elsewhere, and he remains a decent low-end PPR fantasy option as long as he is around.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 1/13/19 4:50pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery registered five grabs for 63 yards on seven targets in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New Orleans Saints, but his costly drop inside of two minutes led to an interception by CB Marshon Lattimore to seal the loss.
Huddle Up: Jeffery managed 65 receptions for 843 yards and six scores during the regular season, adjusting to two different quarterbacks in the process. He'll once again be a solid WR2 or WR3 heading into 2019, although he seemed to perform better working with Nick Foles than Carson Wentz. The latter is expected to take back over as the starter in 2019.
Wendell Smallwood - RBPosted 1/13/19 4:48pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood rushed 10 times for 33 yards while adding a catch for six yards in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Smallwood had 11 touches to lead the Philly backfield, while Darren Sproles had six total touches. While he led the way in this one, Smallwood's fantasy outlook heading into 2019 is rather murky with Corey Clement likely back, and Darren Sproles perhaps in the picture again, too.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/13/19 4:46pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 18-of-30 passes for 201 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 13. He also had a 1-yard rushing score.
Huddle Up: Foles led the Eagles to a Super Bowl championship in 2018, and he rallied the team and got them into the playoffs once Carson Wentz went down to injury again. He is about to be a wealthy man in 2019 if he doesn't miraculously end up in Philly again. If he lands a starting gig somewhere, he'll have some fantasy staying power.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 1/13/19 5:06pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor recorded just one catch for six yards on three targets in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Agholor finished a career-high 64 receptions while turning in 726 yards and four grabs, just 32 yards short of his career-best mark in 2017. It appears 60-65 grabs for around 750 yards and a handful of touchdowns is what you can expect from Agholor, making him a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy target in 2019.
Golden Tate - WRPosted 1/13/19 5:03pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate posted two catches for just 18 yards on five targets in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Tate was looking to get back to the Super Bowl with the Eagles, but he falls short. The 30-year-old still proved he has plenty left in the tank and he could be a nice PPR fantasy option in Philadelphia, or wherever he might land if he doesn't return to the Eagles.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 1/13/19 4:59pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews had just one catch in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New Orleans Saints, but it was good for a 37-yard touchdown.
Huddle Up: Matthews registered just 20 grabs for 300 yards and two touchdowns during the regular season, and he barely moved the needle in most fantasy formats. Perhaps a change of scenery in 2019 will improve his fantasy outlook.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/12/19 1:00pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is one of the quarterbacks the Jacksonville Jaguars are considering pursuing this offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Foles has taken over for an injured Carson Wentz for the second straight year and is playing well again. Foles likely will have multiple suitors if he is available this offseason, but the Jaguars will be in that mix. Foles probably would be a high-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he joins the Jaguars.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 1/11/19 2:57pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Mike Wallace (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 11, and is listed as questionable for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Wallace probably will be a game-time decision, so owners can check the inactive list for his status. He has not played since the beginning of the season and probably would not have a big role if he is active. He probably should be benched in all fantasy leagues.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 1/11/19 3:04pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 11, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Jeffery has been targeted at least five times in each of the last six games and has shown good chemistry with Nick Foles. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
Golden Tate - WRPosted 1/11/19 3:02pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 11, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Tate was quiet during the final month of the regular season but was targeted eight times during the Wild Card playoff game and finished with 46 yards and one touchdown. He should have a solid role in the passing game this week and can be a flex option.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 1/10/19 3:52pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Mike Wallace (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: Simply put, Wallace isn't an option to deploy this week in any DFS games even if he does suit up. Wallace has played in only two games this year, failing to catch a pass in either contest. He also hasn't played in a game yet since being activated from the injured reserve list.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 1/10/19 3:51pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) remained out of practice Thursday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: This is to be expected, as Wentz isn't expected back at any point during the playoffs if the Eagles pull off the unthinkable once again. Nick Foles is firmly in place under center and could potentially offer solid value as a QB1 option in postseason DFS formats.
Golden Tate - WRPosted 1/10/19 3:46pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate (knee) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: Tate's eight targets last Sunday were his most in weeks, and while his line of five receptions for 46 yards was nothing spectacular, the former Notre Dame product did secure the game's most important grab with his late touchdown on fourth down. At the moment, he's mostly a WR3 for fantasy purposes, however.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 1/10/19 3:44pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (ribs) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: Jeffery looked just fine in the team's Wild Card playoff game a week ago, enjoying one of his best outings of the year in pacing the Eagles in catches (six), targets (nine) and receiving yards (82). He'll be good to go for Sunday's date in New Orleans and it's reasonable to believe he can post a similar line this weekend.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 1/9/19 1:12pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (ribs) was listed as a limited participant for the walk-through practice Wednesday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Jeffery has been dealing with an injury to his ribs, but he is expected to be fine for this weekend's playoff game in New Orleans. He managed six grabs for 82 yards on nine targets in the Wild Card playoff game win against Chicago last weekend.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 1/9/19 1:10pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) did not practice Wednesday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Wentz isn't expected to start the playoff game against the New Orleans Saints anyway, as Nick Foles has been working his magic yet again in the postseason. It's expected Wentz will be inactive again, with Nate Sudfeld as the backup to Foles. Avoid Wentz in any fantasy capacity until 2019.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 1/9/19 1:18pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Mike Wallace (ankle) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Wallace could be a deep threat for Nick Foles in New Orleans this weekend, and he is a sneaky low-cost DFS option if active, although his targets could be rather limited after a lengthy layoff.
Golden Tate - WRPosted 1/9/19 1:14pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate (knee) was listed as a limited participant for the walk-through practice Wednesday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Tate should be able to go for this weekend's playoff game in New Orleans. He posted the game-winning grab against the Chicago Bears in last week's wild Wild Card game ride. Check back Friday for his official injury status, however, before proceeding in postseason fantasy leagues.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/6/19 8:14am ET
The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to consider trading QB Nick Foles during the offseason, in order to allow the organization to smoothly transition back to franchise quarterback Carson Wentz for next year, according to multiple sources. They could decide to exercise his $20 million option or use the franchise tag on him.
Huddle Up: There will be few viable quarterback options available through free agency or the draft, which should create a great deal of demand for Foles' services this offseason. There's an excellent chance that he could wind up as a full-time starter somewhere in 2019, which means that he should be viewed as a high-end QB2 in most fantasy formats if this comes to pass.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 1/6/19 9:07am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles has told teammates and coaches he could look into playing another season.
Huddle Up: The 35-year-old Sproles did miss 10 games due to a hamstring injury, but has averaged seven touches, 49.6 yards and totaled three TDs in five games since his Week 13 return. He's provided the Eagles with a spark down the stretch and most definitely could return in 2019 as part of a crowded Philly backfield.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 1/6/19 5:08pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles rushed a team-high 13 times for 21 yards and caught two passes for 14 yards in a 16-15 win over the Chicago Bears in the wild-card round Sunday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: The 13 carries were a season-high for Sproles, and while he was bottled up by the tough Chicago defense, the potential for a sizeable workload should have him on your fantasy radar for playoff contests ahead of a matchup with the New Orleans Saints.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/6/19 5:04pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 25 of his 40 passes for 266 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in a 16-15 win over the Chicago Bears in the wild-card round Sunday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: The interceptions have been the norm for Foles since he took over as the starter, but he has also fired multiple touchdown passes in three straight games. If you are looking for some salary cap relief in DFS playoff contests, Foles could be worth a flier heading into a matchup with the Saints.
Dallas Goedert - TEPosted 1/6/19 5:25pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert caught two of his four targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in a 16-15 win over the Chicago Bears in the wild-card round Sunday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: Goedert is a completely touchdown-dependent option at this point in his career, but with player pool dwindling, he could be worth a flier in playoff contests.
