Nick Foles - QBPosted 11/18/14 6:38pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone), who cracked his clavicle in Week 8, is expected to miss at least another month, but head coach Chip Kelly said there have been no recent updates on his condition. "No," Kelly said. "He'll get a re-check at some point in time, but they said it's usually three to four weeks out before they ever take another X-ray. So he has not had that done yet." Foles has been working out but not in game conditions.
Huddle Up: Buckle up as it's likely the Mark Sanchez Show for the remainder of the regular season in Philly.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 11/14/14 9:49am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy averaged fewer than 2 yards per carry for the third time this season with 12 carries for 19 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10. McCoy had two games of fewer than 2 yards per carry in his career before this season.
Huddle Up: McCoy owners are well aware of his struggles this season. McCoy has been one of the biggest busts in fantasy football so far this season and with Darren Sproles playing well, that's likely not going to change down the stretch.
Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 11/11/14 1:09am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez was 20-of-37 for 332 yards, two TDs and an interception Monday, Nev. 10 in a 45-21 win over the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: It was the right opponent at the right venue for Sanchez in his starting debut for Philly, and he wound up posting his fourth-highest single-game yardage total in his 70 contests, including the postseason, as a pro. Sanchez hooked up with rookie WR Jordan Matthews (7-138 on a team-high 9 targets) for both of his TD tosses, and he plenty of time to throw getting sacked/hit only once on his 38 drop-backs. It all adds up to a must waiver-wire claim if Sanchez is still available in your league.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 11/11/14 4:20pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews, who had seven catches for 138 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 10 win with QB Mark Sanchez starting, developed some nice chemistry with Sanchez in training camp this year. Sanchez may have completed more passes to Mathews than any other player in camp while working with the second-team offense. Sanchez immediately found Matthews for a touchdown when he relieved QB Nick Foles in Week 8 because of an injury, too. 'Of course we had something going on in camp,' Matthews said. 'We kind of had to. We were both on the second team at the time. So, I took the majority of the reps with him. After practice, I made sure I got extra reps with him. I knew that if I wanted to break into the lineup, I had to look good with the second-team first. That was definitely a point of emphasis for me back then. We continued to have a great relationship. I started building one with Nick (Foles), but now it's Mark's opportunity, so I have to go out and make plays for him.'
Huddle Up: Chip Kelly downplayed Matthews' huge role Monday night, saying it was simply how the game plan unfolded, but the rookie is definitely worth a pickup as he also caught a TD from Sanchez the previous week in Houston.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 11/11/14 6:18pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz continued to see his role shrink in Week 10 versus the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 10, as head coach Chip Kelly seems more comfortable with TE Brent Celek because of his blocking skills. Ertz must work on his blocking moving forward.
Huddle Up: Ertz only has five targets, two receptions and 21 yards over the last two games and shouldn't be started until he shows some signs of fantasy life.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 11/6/14 4:06pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 6.
Huddle Up: McCoy was out with an illness Wednesday and will be ready to go Monday night against the Panthers.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 11/5/14 6:34pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy missed practice with an illness Wednesday, Nov. 5, but he should be back Thursday, Nov. 6, and ready to go for the team's Week 10 game against the Carolina Panthers on Monday, Nov. 10.
Huddle Up: No worries, Shady owners -- nothing significant here.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 11/4/14 11:40pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles' long-term future with the team was in doubt before he broke his collarbone in Week 9, according to people with knowledge of the team's plan. Foles' inconsistent play this year has 'soured' some in the organization, including general manager Howie Roseman, according to sources. Foles has thrown 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions this year for a quarterback rating of 81.9. The people that drafted Foles in 2012 are no longer with the team, too. Roseman and his scouts preferred Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins to Foles, but then-head coach Andy Reid insisted on Foles.
Huddle Up: Definitely something to consider in keeper leagues as Foles' star has definitely dimmed somewhat following his stellar 2013 season.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 11/3/14 12:06am ET
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone) suffered a broken collarbone in the Week 9 game against the Houston Texans, a source confirmed Sunday, Nov. 2. An MRI Monday, Nov. 3, will determine how long Foles will be sidelined.
Huddle Up: Early reports have Foles out at least 4-6 weeks. Mark Sanchez will start while Foles is out and is a must add for owners who need QB help. Sanchez could be a borderline QB1 in Chip Kelly's offense.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 11/3/14 10:26am ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz played just 24 snaps in Week 9 Sunday, Nov. 2, because the team used a lot of three-receiver sets. TE Brent Celek played 64 snaps to block.
Huddle Up: It was a tough matchup for Ertz to begin with; being on the field for such a limited number of snaps made it even more difficult for Ertz to carve out fantasy value. And replacing Nick Foles with Mark Sanchez capped off Ertz's trifecta of futility. Going forward, Philly's QB change and Ertz's fluctuating role throw his fantasy value into question.
DeMeco Ryans - LBPosted 11/3/14 7:54pm ET
The Philadelphia Eagles placed LB DeMeco Ryans (Achilles') on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 3. The team also signed free-agent FS Chris Prosinski (Jaguars). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Tough blow for an already shaky Philly defense, losing its leading tackler and emotional leader. Ryan also has an interception, a fumble recovery and four passes defensed.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 11/2/14 8:27pm ET
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone) had his arm in a sling after the Week 9 game against the Houston Texans, but head coach Chip Kelly said Sunday, Nov. 2, that he did not know any more than that.
Huddle Up: Foles has a collarbone injury and could miss some time. Mark Sanchez filled in for Foles on Sunday and played well. Sanchez would be a borderline QB1 in Philadelphia's offense if Foles is out for a while.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 10/31/14 3:25pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Sproles has practiced in full all week after sitting out the Week 8 game at Arizona, and will return to his usual role spelling LeSean McCoy on Sunday in Houston.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 10/29/14 2:38pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Sproles has said he expects to play this Sunday in Houston after missing the Week 9 loss to the Cards. If so, we should continue to see positive practice reports the rest of the week.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 10/28/14 3:50pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) fully participated in practice Tuesday, Oct. 28. Sproles said he is hopeful to play this week, but is not sure of his status until he gets more practice in.
Huddle Up: Sproles was unable to play in Week 8 following the team's bye, but see if he can keep Tuesday's momentum rolling through the rest of the week.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 10/26/14 9:23pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin posted 12 receptions for 187 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 8 game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Maclin has been a monster all season long in Chip Kelly's offense. He's locked in as a weekly WR1 and is shaping up to be one of the steals of this year's draft.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 10/24/14 3:53pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Sproles took advantage of Philly's timely bye last week, and figures to be able to play Sunday in Arizona. Double check before kickoff, though, just to make sure.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 10/21/14 2:53pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: According to reports, Sproles didn't appear to be limited during the time the media got to observe practice Tuesday, and he may not end up missing any time thanks to the team's well-timed bye week. But definitely see how the rest of the practice week goes for the RB before getting too excited.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 10/13/14 10:35am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy carried 22 times for a season-high 149 yards in Week 6 against the New York Giants, although he was held out of the end zone again. He also chipped in with two receptions for five yards.
Huddle Up: It wasn't the breakout game McCoy owners have been hoping for, but Shady finally racking up some yardage was a welcome sight. With Darren Sproles a little nicked up, McCoy might see a few more opportunities to dig his way out of his early-season slump.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 10/13/14 10:35am ET
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) had the stability of his left medial collateral and anterior cruciate ligament tested by a team orthopedist, and sideline reporter Michele Tafoya said 'whatever news he delivered' to Sproles reportedly made him 'unhappy.'
Huddle Up: Sproles was able to walk to the locker room under his own power, and after the game he told reporters he would be "all right". Plus, Philly has a bye in Week 7 so he'll have an additional week to heal. However, Sproles' fantasy owners might want to look at their Sproles replacement as a potential two- or three-week fix, just in case.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 10/13/14 12:46pm ET
Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) is believed to have avoided an anterior cruciate ligament tear. However, he's expected to miss a few weeks due to the knee injury.
Huddle Up: Reports say Sproles is expected to miss one game. It's good news because the injury looked serious at the time. Sproles should return in 1-2 weeks based on early reports, so fantasy owners can breathe a little easier today.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 10/6/14 10:36am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy took himself out of the game in the fourth quarter Sunday, Oct. 5, according to head coach Chip Kelly. The team was trying to ice the game with a six-point lead.
Huddle Up: Kelly glossed over the situation by noting that Philly has two feature backs in McCoy and Darren Sproles, but neither Kelly nor fantasy owners can be happy with McCoy opting out at crunch time--especially when he's underachieved mightily to this point.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 10/3/14 4:21pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 3, and is probable for Week 5 against the St. Louis Rams.
Huddle Up: Bright green light for Maclin, who trails only Jordy Nelson for the most targets among all WRs.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 10/1/14 4:10pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Hammy issues are always worth monitoring, but no worries for now for the WR who ranks second in targets (47) and sixth in total fantasy points (54) heading into Week 5.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 9/30/14 10:45am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has completed 25.6 percent of his throws over 20 yards this season. He is on pace to make 156 attempts of 20 or more yards. He had 55 attempts and completed 45 percent of them last season.
Huddle Up: At least some of Foles' struggles with the deep ball can be traced back to the offensive line, which has been ravaged by injury and suspension thus far this year. Foles' deep-ball issues are just one of the issues Philly's offense is facing, but Foles' numbers were successfully hiding the problem until the loss to San Francisco last week.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 9/30/14 4:19pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin did not participate in practice Tuesday, Sept. 30. Maclin said he is fine.
Huddle Up: There are lingering durability concerns with Maclin, but it doesn't sound like anything to worry about with the WR who ranks second among all wideouts with 47 targets and sixth with 54 fantasy points.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 9/29/14 10:17am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy had 10 carries for 17 yards Sunday, Sept. 28, and has 29 carries for 39 yards in the last two weeks. 'We got whooped up front,' head coach Chip Kelly said. 'We're not very good up front right now. We've got a lot of guys banged up. That's not an excuse, it's just the reality.'
Huddle Up: The Eagles have been dealing with injuries and suspensions to what has been, when intact, one of the better lines in football. They were unable to run the ball against San Francisco, and while it's easy to peg Philly as a passing team the Chip Kelly offense is predicated on success in the ground game. On the bright side, the Eagles should get some of their missing linemen back this week.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 9/26/14 2:02pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (oblique) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 26, and is probable for Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: The rookie, currently Philly's No. 3 WR, will go against the Niners, trying to follow up on his breakout 8-59-2 Week 3 performance.
Riley Cooper - WRPosted 9/24/14 12:07am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper leads all wide receivers in routes run, according to Cecil Lammey of ESPN Denver, but has totaled just nine catches for 71 yards.
Huddle Up: More alarming for Cooper owners is the Sunday performance of rookie Jordan Matthews who nearly matched Cooper's season totals in one game, catching 8 passes for 59 yards, including a pair of TDs. Cooper remains the starter in two-WR sets, but any more games like Matthews had on Sunday might result in a reversal of roles.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 9/24/14 4:51pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is not concerned with his rushing numbers from Week 3, and said he does not feel like he is struggling after posting 22 yards on 19 carries. "I don't think I''m struggling at all," McCoy said. "I don't know what you mean by that."
Huddle Up: McCoy did return to the contest after a concussion scare but there's no sugarcoating the 22-total yard performance -- he also had 1 catch for 0 yards -- which was his worst outing since his rookie year of 2009. Now, the task Sunday is trying to rebound vs. a Niners' defense which has surrendered the third-fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs.
