Dorial Green-Beckham - WRPosted 8/24/16 3:41pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham will receive snaps with the first-team offense during the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Aug. 27, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Green-Beckham has a chance to earn a solid role in the passing game if he plays well against the Colts since none of the Eagles receivers have stood out during training camp. Green-Beckham was inconsistent as a member of the Titans, so he should only be a late-round option in deeper leagues at this point.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 8/24/16 5:15pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) promised he'd be ready for Week 1. The wideout hasn't played yet this preseason.
Huddle Up: Owners are understandably concerned that Matthews might not be ready for the start of the season, but this proclamation from the 24-year-old should put those concerns at an ease. Matthews sounds very confident about being ready for Week 1, so it appears that will be the case more likely than not. After barely missing out on 1,000 receiving yards a year ago, Matthews is a solid bet to top that plateau in the upcoming campaign. It's also worth noting that he hasn't missed a single game in his first two seasons.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 8/20/16 8:00am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) should be ready for the start of the regular season, according to head coach Doug Pederson. Matthews is considered day-to-day, but Pederson is not sure if Matthews will practice this week.
Huddle Up: Matthews could play in the third preseason game, but the Eagles may also decide to keep him out until Week 1. He should be one of the main targets in the passing game when he is healthy and can be a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
Kenjon Barner - RBPosted 8/19/16 6:46am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner has made it clear that he is the No. 2 running back behind RB Ryan Mathews, according to beat writer Reuben Frank. He has rushed 13 times for 76 yards in the first two preseason games.
Huddle Up: Barner may be the No. 2, but Darren Sproles is the second back to own in fantasy - especially in PPR leagues. Mathews does have a decorated injury history, which could make Barner a factor. However, he doesn't have much upside beyond a RB5 handcuff for now.
Paul Turner - WRPosted 8/19/16 6:26am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Paul Turner has been the best wide receiver for the team aside from WR Jordan Matthews, in the opinion of beat writer Reuben Frank. He has made highlight plays, including a one-handed catch in the second preseason game.
Huddle Up: Turner is an undrafted rookie, and he will have to do a lot more to usurp Nelson Agholor and Dorial Green-Beckham. Turner doesn't have much fantasy luster for now.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 8/17/16 9:48pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor hasn't progressed much during his second offseason, typically when the lights start to go on for receivers. Beat writer Jeff McLane says Agholor has struggled to catch balls, create separation and run consistent routes and it showed in the preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: The clock is ticking for Agholor. The presence of Jordan Matthews, when he is healthy, and the addition of Dorial Green-Beckham is bad news for the former standout at USC. He just hasn't popped so far, but there is still time. However, fantasy owners will only want to risk a late-round roster spot on him at this point.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 8/16/16 11:45am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford and the rest of the starters will play into the second quarter in the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18.
Huddle Up: Bradford will have his first chance to add some kind of spark to his midrange QB2 status in fantasy.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 8/16/16 10:36pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (rib) will travel for the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he will not play in the game. 'The reason why is he's a quarterback and I want him involved in every single meeting, so we don't stunt his growth,' head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday, Aug. 16. 'I want to continue that whole process with him. And (with) his injury, it's a rib injury. (With) guys that have hamstrings and quads, it's a little bit different.'
Huddle Up: As expected after the second-overall pick was hurt in 12-of-24, 89-yard, one-interception debut against the Bucs.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 8/13/16 4:12pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (ribs) has a hairline rib fracture. The Eagles hope to have him back before the preseason concludes.
Huddle Up: Wentz got knocked around on Saturday night and paid the price. The Eagles don't have a timetable for his return but the hope is he'll be back before the final preseason game. The lack of reps will obviously hinder Wentz's development. Sam Bradford is locked in as the Eagles starter for the foreseeable future. Wentz isn't a threat to be under center until later in the season.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 8/12/16 8:43am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz completed 12 of his 24 passes for 89 yards and an interception in the preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: Dink and dunking his way, the rookie proved he isn't quite ready yet. Wentz is worth stashing is keeper leagues, and you can leave him on the waiver wire in other formats.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 8/12/16 12:16pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has displayed excellent arm strength, good mobility and a high football IQ so far, but the team is committed to him opening the season as the No. 3.
Huddle Up: Wentz is only a dynasty league option in fantasy for now. He could become a waiver claim if things go south in Philly.
Rueben Randle - WRPosted 8/12/16 2:02pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle's performance in Philadelphia's first preseason game, Thursday, Aug. 11, was described as an 'embarrassment' by PhillyVoice.com's Jimmy Kempski. He noted Randle's poor route-running and blocking efforts. Kempski said, 'QBs can't possibly want him on the field.' Randle played 28 offensive snaps, hauling in one of his three targets for just three yards.
Huddle Up: Uh, yeah, not exactly a dazzling debut. And paired with the ongoing struggles of second-year wideout Nelson Agholor, it makes Jordan Matthews' recovery from a camp knee issue all the more important to the Eagles' pass-catching corps.
Wendell Smallwood - RBPosted 8/9/16 10:53am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (quadriceps) will miss the first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: Smallwood would need an injury ahead of him to crack fantasy rosters as more than a late-round flier. Keep an eye on him late in camp.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 8/8/16 8:45am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles is the 'best running back on the team', according to NJ.com reporter Eliot Shorr-Parks.
Huddle Up: The statement appears to be a shot at Ryan Mathews, although Shorr-Parks could easily be referring to the Eagles' lack of healthy bodies at the position since Mathews and rookie Wendell Smallwood have both missed practice time due to injuries. Even at 33, Sproles is one of the better receiving backs in the league and figures to be a fine player to round out the back end of a fantasy roster as a RB5 in deeper leagues.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 8/8/16 11:38am ET
Updating an earlier report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) will miss a few weeks, but head coach Doug Pederson said the team is hopeful Matthews will return for the third preseason game.
Huddle Up: Matthews' absence isn't too big of a deal since starters rarely play much in the first two preseason games anyway. He remains a high-end WR2 in fantasy.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 8/8/16 3:10pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor will be given plenty of opportunities to redeem himself after a turbulent offseason and disappointing 2015 rookie campaign. He is slated to be the No. 2 starter and is focused on improving his 52.2 percent reception rate from a year ago.
Huddle Up: There's suddenly more reliance on the second-year WR than ever withtop WR Jordan Matthews expected to be sidelined a couple weeks with a knee issue. Let's see if Agholor can step up to the challenge.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 8/8/16 6:25pm ET
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) is expected to miss two to four weeks because of a bone bruise in his knee, according to sources.
Huddle Up: It sounds like the issue will be pushing the start of the regular season, and Matthews is ranked as a solid WR3.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 8/7/16 12:48pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) did not practice Sunday, Aug. 7.
Huddle Up: Head coach Doug Pederson has said Matthews will be OK after taking a low hit from a rookie safety in practice Friday, but he's yet to return to the field. Something we'll keep an eye on as Matthews has WR2 upside as Philly's top WR.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 8/7/16 4:25pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) worked with the first-team offense during practice Sunday, Aug. 7, and appeared to be a full participant.
Huddle Up: Good sign (at least for now) with the oft-injured RB, but that ever-present health risk needs to be baked into his draft ranking -- currently as a flex/high-end RB3 in The Huddle's ranks.
Kenjon Barner - RBPosted 8/5/16 8:46am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner is in noticeably better shape and is having a solid training camp. Barner is focused on improving, not on the coaching change that occurred with head coach Doug Pederson now at the helm. 'You can't worry about a situation that's no longer your situation,' Barner said. 'My situation right now is Doug Pederson and this offense.' Barner has seen increased repetitions with RBs Ryan Mathews (ankle) and Wendell Smallwood (quadriceps) nursing injuries. He's trying to prove he has the durability to withstand a larger workload while his counterparts are sidelined.
Huddle Up: Barner is part of a fairly crowded backfield in Philadelphia with Mathews, Darren Sproles and Smallwood all likely ahead of him currently. Barner is a valuable return man, though, and may see more opportunities in the passing game considering his physique and agility. For now, view Barner as a late-round gamble with more upside in PPR leagues.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 8/5/16 11:36am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) took a low hit in practice Friday, Aug. 5, and had to be helped off the field with a left knee injury.
Huddle Up: It's too early to diagnose, but losing Matthews would be a huge blow to the club. He's coming off an 85-997-8 season and has room for more as a WR2 in fantasy.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 8/5/16 11:36am ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (head) is being evaluated for a head injury Friday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: Ertz has been a bit of a tease in fantasy as he has failed to reach the end zone with regularity. He had a solid third year with 75 catches for 853 yards, but he scored just twice. He has improved every year, and he's a midrange TE1 with upside.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 8/5/16 11:36am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) returned to practice Friday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: Mathews will be the primary runner, but he won't play many third downs. He loses a step in PPR leagues as an RB3.
Wendell Smallwood - RBPosted 8/5/16 3:34pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (quadriceps) did not practice Friday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: That's three straight days now on the sidelines, which isn't helping the fifth-round rookie's quest to learn the offense and earn snaps.
Rueben Randle - WRPosted 8/5/16 7:02pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle has been one of the more impressive players during training camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Randle is trying to revive his career in Philadelphia after he was a disappointment with the Giants. Outside of Jordan Matthews, no receiver on the Eagles' roster has a set role right now. Randle could enter the year as a starter if he has a strong preseason.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 8/4/16 8:57am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) remains out of practice Thursday, Aug. 4.
Huddle Up: Ryan Mathews is hurt? Crazy talk! Teasing aside, he has a reasonable chance to dominate the touches in this modified West Coast system, but he really doesn't fit the schemes very well. Mathews could lose enough touches to Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood to wipe out his slight upside; he's a weak RB2 or strong flex target on draft day.
Wendell Smallwood - RBPosted 8/3/16 1:29pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (quadriceps) is out of practice Wednesday, Aug. 3, due to a quadriceps strain.
Huddle Up: Training-camp injuries and absences are particularly tough for rookies, who need the reps and work to get up to speed in their new offenses at the pro level. Something to keep an eye on with a back who's on more than a few sleeper lists.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 8/3/16 4:19pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford appears comfortable with the playbook and is ahead of where he was last season at this point, in the opinion of The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.
Huddle Up: If you believe in Bradford, he can be be had essentially for nothing as he's currently the 32nd QB coming off the board -- or undrafted in the majority of standard leagues -- according to the latest ADP rankings.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 8/1/16 9:12am ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz will be featured in the red zone, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Ertz has been a bit of a tease in fantasy as he has failed to reach the end zone with regularity. He had a solid third year with 75 catches for 853 yards, but he scored just twice. Ertz has improved every season, and he's a midrange TE1 with upside.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 7/31/16 1:23pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) is not expected at practice until later this week, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: An ominous start to camp and the 2016 season for the oft-injured Mathews, who's now once again entrusted with with a lead-back role. Stay tuned ...
