Sam Bradford - QBPosted 2/9/16 10:05am ET
Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will not receive the franchise tag.
Huddle Up: This should not come as a surprise.
Riley Cooper - WRPosted 2/9/16 10:05am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper was released Monday, Feb. 8.
Huddle Up: Cooper stuck around in Philly because Chip Kelly likes big receivers. He could end up in San Francisco, though he's demonstrated his year as a fantasy factor was mostly a fluke.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 2/5/16 9:44am ET
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson listed finding a 'young quarterback' as one of the steps necessary for team to have success, which could mean QB Sam Bradford is not in the team's plans moving forward.
Huddle Up: Bradford was hand-picked by Pederson's predecessor, Chip Kelly, so don't be surprised if the Eagles move on to a new option at the quarterback position--whether via the draft, trade or free agency.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 2/5/16 9:44am ET
Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray said he is committed to the Eagles despite rumors that there may be dissension between Murray and Philadelphia and despite a tweet by Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant telling Murray to return to the Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Murray was misused in Philly's backfield rotation last year. It remains to be seen what new coach Doug Pederson's plan is, but you would have to think if Murray is on their roster they'll treat him like the high-priced lead back they paid him to be last offseason.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 2/4/16 6:17pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray could be courted by the Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders or Dallas Cowboys if he does not return to the Eagles next season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Those three teams were interested in Murray last offseason before he signed with the Eagles.
Huddle Up: Seattle would seem to be a less-likely destination now after the emergence of rookie Thomas Rawls this past season, and a return to the Cowboys would seem to make the most sense if the financial details can be hammered out.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 1/29/16 9:34am ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford could hit the open market if the team believes there is a franchise quarterback available in the 2016 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: The Eagles have a new coaching staff so they are certainly not beholden to Bradford. New coaches often like to align themselves with a fresh start at the quarterback position, so expect Doug Pederson to do his homework on this year's quarterback crop heading into the draft.
Doug Pederson - HCPosted 1/26/16 9:57am ET
With the arrival of new Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, the Eagles are expected to switch to the West Coast offense that doesn't require as much blocking for its tight ends.
Huddle Up: Pederson is an Andy Reid disciple; Andy Reid runs the WCO. Doesn't take advanced calculus to reach the conclusion the Eagles will be going West Coast, and that bodes well for a pass-catching tight end like Zach Ertz. Hence the big contract Ertz just inked.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 1/26/16 9:57am ET
Updating an immediate report, Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz signed a five-year, $42.5 million deal with $20 million in guarantees Monday, Jan. 25. The deal makes him the fourth-highest-paid tight end in the league. Ertz can earn a maximum of $45.8 million because of $300,000 Pro Bowl incentives and $3 million in Pro Bowl salary escalators.
Huddle Up: Tight ends can flourish in the West Coast offense, which is what new coach Doug Pederson will run in Philadelphia. Here's hoping the Eagles use Ertz a bit more consistently than Pederson's Chiefs used the similarly talented Travis Kelce in Kansas City.
Brent Celek - TEPosted 1/26/16 2:06pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek signed a three-year, $13 million extension Tuesday, Jan. 26, which includes $6 million guaranteed, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Another day, another extension for a Philly tight end as Celek joins teammate Zach Ertz (5 years, $42.5 million) with new deals. Ertz finished second on the team with 75 catches for 853 yards and two TDs this past season while Celek had 27 grabs for 312 yards and three scores in a complementary role.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 1/26/16 2:06pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford would like to stay in Philadelphia, according to Eagles TE Zach Ertz. 'I think he's excited,' Ertz said. 'He wants to be in Philadelphia.' New head coach Doug Pederson said last week that Bradford is a top-notch quarterback who would fit his system well.
Huddle Up: Bradford threw for a career-best 3,725 yards and, more importantly, mainly stayed healthy missing only two games. Look for Philly to try and re-sign Bradford given their No. 13 draft position and the perennial shortage of enticing free-agent QBs.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 1/21/16 9:20am ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford's agent asked the Eagles for $25 million annually in contract talks earlier this season, ESPN's Jim Trotter said on NFL Insiders.
Huddle Up: Stop laughing.
Doug Pederson - HCPosted 1/19/16 11:20am ET
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was officially announced as Philadelphia's new head coach Monday, Jan. 18.
Huddle Up: The Eagles had to wait until Pederson's Chiefs were eliminated from the postseason, which happened on Saturday. Now he takes over from the departed Chip Kelly, giving the Eagles an Andy Reid flavor they haven't had since... well, since they fired Andy Reid a few years ago.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 1/19/16 3:46pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is a top-notch quarterback in the opinion of new head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Bradford threw for a career-high 3,725 yards while starting 14 games this season, and it sounds like Pederson is coming in all in favor of signing the unrestricted free agent.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 1/12/16 9:18am ET
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (groin) is expected to be sidelined around six weeks after he recently underwent surgery, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Mathews may be limited in early offseason workouts but shouldn't miss significant time as the Eagles install a new coach and most likely a new offense.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 1/3/16 10:31pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz had nine catches for 152 yards in a 35-30 win over the New York Giants in Week 17.
Huddle Up: After a slow start to the season, Ertz closed out the year catching 35 balls for 450 yards and a touchdowns in his final four games. Ertz has teased fantasy owners before but he could finally be primed for a breakout campaign in 2016.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 12/22/15 5:31pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray was visibly angry and reportedly blew up in the locker room following the loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
Huddle Up: Murray no doubt is about as happy as the fantasy GMs, who spent a high-round pick on the RB only to see him get 23 touches over the last three weeks during the homestretch/playoffs. Continue to give this situation a wide berth.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 12/21/15 9:23am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray played just eight snaps (12% of the offense) Sunday, Dec. 20. RB Darren Sproles played 30 snaps (47%), and Ryan Mathews played 26 (41%).
Huddle Up: Murray has been buried in the Eagles' doghouse. It will be interesting to see what the offseason holds for the running back position if Chip Kelly remains in Philly.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 12/17/15 4:40pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (back) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 17. It is expected that Matthews will play in Week 15 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Definitely a good sign Thursday as Matthews stepped up his participation level, but Philly's No. 1 WR is far from an automatic start as he's totaled only 16 catches for 149 yards and two TDs over his last five games.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 12/16/15 8:37pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews' (back) chances of playing in Week 15 against the Arizona Cardinals look to be slim.
Huddle Up: Matthews has a tough matchup and will be a risky WR3/4 even if he does play. Zach Ertz and Darren Sproles will be more involved in the passing game if Matthews is out.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 12/15/15 3:57pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (back) said he probably wouldn't be able to play if the Eagles were playing Tuesday, Dec. 15. His back ailment is lingering, keeping him out of practice Tuesday, and it got worst last week.
Huddle Up: Matthews' disappointing season only has gotten worse of late, and the injury certainly isn't helping as he's had no more than four receptions in his last five games, totaling 16 catches for 149 yards and two TDs during that span. Look for another option if he's among your starting wideout options this week.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 12/12/15 3:55pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (back) is listed as questionable for Week 14.
Huddle Up: It's not really known how serious Matthews' back injury is but the fact that he's questionable isn't a great sign. The Eagles play at 1:00 so owners will know early if Matthews is active against the Bills tomorrow. He'll be a WR3 if active.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 12/10/15 4:39pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion, groin) was back to a full practice Thursday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Mathews appears set to play for the first time since Week 10 and could step into a lead role in the Philly backfield with Chip Kelly looking for answers at RB.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 12/8/15 3:43pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion, groin) said he plans to play Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Buffalo Bills. Mathews returned to practice Tuesday.
Huddle Up: Mathews has missed the last three games, and in his absence, the Philly RB situation has turned into quite the quagmire with Chip Kelly rotating his backs. Mathews had arguably been the most productive before his injury, and he could zoom to the top the rotation when he returns.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 12/8/15 3:43pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray may no longer be the team's lead running back, especially with RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) returning to practice Tuesday, Dec. 8. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur did not confirm that Murray was still the leading running back, and the Eagles remain confident in all of their running backs. Murray had just eight carries for 24 yards in the win over the New England Patriots in Week 13, fewer than RBs Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner.
Huddle Up: Following an extremely slow start, Murray had a run of impressive fantasy performances in Weeks 5-10 but has seen his touches and total yardage drop in each of the last three weeks. Murray reportedly has even vented his frustration over his usage to the team's ownership, and perhaps it's best to steer clear until the dust settles.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 12/7/15 2:57pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said he does not have an update on RB Ryan Mathews' (concussion, groin) status.
Huddle Up: Mathews has missed the Eagles' past three games and it appears he's in danger of missing Week 14 as well. If Mathews is out, the trio of DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner will battle for touches against the Bills.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 12/4/15 3:48pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion, groin) is out for Week 13.
Huddle Up: In case you haven't taken notice, Mathews' annual injury absence is upon us as he'll miss a third straight game.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 12/3/15 3:49pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (shoulder) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 3.
Huddle Up: It's going to take a sudden late-week setback to keep Bradford from returning after a two-game absence.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 12/2/15 6:30pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion, groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.
Huddle Up: Mathews remains a major question mark after missing the last two games and both of Philly's practices so far this week, and his fantasy owners will have to hope for a late-week reversal of fortune.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 12/1/15 1:45pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (shoulder) will practice Tuesday, Dec. 1, which will serve as a big test to determine his status for Week 13 against the New England Patriots. If he comes away OK, he'll be on pace to start the game Sunday, Dec. 6.
Huddle Up: Bradford has missed the last games -- blowout losses to the Bucs (45-17) and Lions (45-14) -- and backup Mark Sanchez has thrown for 460 yards and four TDs.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 12/1/15 1:57pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (concussion) was cleared to practice Tuesday, Dec. 1, or the first time since suffering a concussion Nov. 22.
Huddle Up: Ertz was heavily involved in the Philly offense, averaging 7.6 targets, 5.2 receptions and 55.6 yards in the five games before getting injured Week 11, and it looks like he'll be back at a good time with a number of other tight ends going down last weekend.
