Carson Wentz - QBPosted 3/19/18 9:58pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) posted video of himself throwing inside the team's practice facility Monday, March 19, as he 'appears to be making some significant strides' in his rehab from a torn ACL and LCL. He's still aiming to return for the season opener.
Huddle Up: All indications are that Wentz will indeed be ready for the start of the season, which means he can be drafted as your standard QB1 after the sensational sophomore showing he exhibited this past year. Prior to going down with a season-ending injury, Wentz had posted a 101.9 passer rating in 13 games, as he finished with 3,296 yards and 33 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 3/18/18 3:57pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is due a $3 million roster bonus on Sunday, March 18.
Huddle Up: Foles was going to receive the bonus either way, but now this counts against the team's salary cap since Philadelphia did not trade him before the bonus kicked in. The Super Bowl LII MVP will serve as the primary backup to Carson Wentz in 2018, and should see plenty of work in training camp and the preseason as Wentz makes his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Since Wentz's injury occurred so late in the season, it's possible Foles could start the season as the team's starter, too, which might be why the organization was hesitant to deal him.
LeGarrette Blount - RBPosted 3/16/18 6:37pm ET
Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Eagles) has agreed to a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions worth $4.5 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Detroit's ground game has been miserable in recent years, and Blount should immediately become the lead back in between the tackles and near the goal line. He could sneak into RB2 territory.
LeGarrette Blount - RBPosted 3/14/18 7:17pm ET
Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount is scheduled to visit the Detroit Lions on Friday, March 16.
Huddle Up: It would be a good fit for Blount to land with the Lions, who have not had a desirable running game in years. In fact, they just produced the league's worst rush attack this past season, so it's a sure bet that Detroit will do something to address this obvious need. Blount saw his numbers go down in 2017 but he could potentially be a legit RB2 as the Lions' lead back.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 3/13/18 8:10am ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton agreed to a four-year, $32 million deal with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, March 13.
Huddle Up: Burton was starting to come into his own this season, and he'll have room to spread his wings in a different uniform. Burton is a sneaky TE2 with some upside.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 3/12/18 10:21pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton has drawn interest from the Detroit Lions, who are being considered as one of the 'serious suitors' for his services.
Huddle Up: With Detroit likely to move on from Eric Ebron, this move would make sense, though it's hard to determine if Burton could be a breakout candidate if he joins the Lions. After all, Ebron, despite his great physical gifts, never realized his potential with Matthew Stafford under center, so the same underachieving fate may await Burton if he arrives in the Motor City.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 3/7/18 2:53pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton is expected to receive interest from the San Francisco 49ers during free agency.
Huddle Up: The 49ers have George Kittle and Garrett Celek on the roster, but Burton likely would be a better option in the passing game if he joins the 49ers. Burton should receive a nice contract in free agency and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end for fantasy owners depending on his team.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 3/5/18 10:34am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has been a trade target for a few teams this offseason, but the Eagles are telling teams that they are looking for more than the first- and fourth-round draft picks they received when they traded QB Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Foles was the Most Valuable Player in the Super Bowl and will be the starter Week 1 if Carson Wentz is not ready to play. Owners will need to keep an eye on Wentz's status during the offseason because Foles could be a fantasy option in the first few weeks of the 2018 season.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 3/5/18 10:37pm ET
The Philadelphia Eagles are confident that QB Carson Wentz (knee) will be 'healthy enough' to start under center for the team's Week 1 game next season on Sept. 6.
Huddle Up: That would also explain why the Eagles are actively fielding offers for Super Bowl hero Nick Foles, willing to part ways with him for the right draft picks or perhaps other compensation. Wentz was a bonafide QB1 last season before going down late in the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament but as long as he's healthy for the start of next year, he has a legitimate shot of being one of the top players at his position in 2018.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 3/4/18 7:02am ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton had 16 NFL teams check in on his status this week. He is not expected to return to the team as they deal with salary cap considerations.
Huddle Up: The 26-year-old Burton had 23 receptions for 248 yards and five touchdowns in 2017 as a reserve for the Super Bowl champions but is likely to step into a starting job regardless of where he lands. For that reason, he should be viewed as a low-end TE1.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 3/1/18 9:32pm ET
The Baltimore Ravens' shopping for a wide receiver would be 'very likely' to include Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith, if his option is declined by the club. A reunion between the two sides is being considered a 'very real possibility.'
Huddle Up: It's more likely than not that Smith becomes a cap-casualty in Philadelphia, so there's indeed a solid chance of this happening. It makes sense for both sides, too, as the Ravens could use some help at wide receiver, while Smith could use a change of scenery to reignite his career. In his three seasons since leaving Baltimore, the seven-year veteran has registered career lows across the board.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 2/24/18 11:41am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith said he expects to be back with the Eagles next season even though the team would save $5 million in salary cap space if he is released.
Huddle Up: Smith finished the 2017 season with 430 yards and two touchdowns but may need to find a new team this offseason. He has some fantasy value because of his big-play potential but probably would only be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in most leagues.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 2/23/18 11:39am ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton reportedly recently received a contract offer he 'didn't consider serious' and is expected to sign with another team when free agency begin in March, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Burton may not have been much of a household name prior to his role in the 'Philly Special,' but he may be the league's best-kept secret at the position and will likely fetch a sizeable contract on the open market. A highly athletic former college quarterback, Burton has fantasy TE1 upside if he finds a decent landing spot in free agency.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 2/21/18 8:25am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff Wednesday, Feb. 21. He suffered the injury in training camp and played through it all season.
Huddle Up: Jeffery had a 57-789-9 season despite the injury. One thing you can always count on, it seems, is injuries when it comes to him. He hasn't reached 1,000 yards in three straight seasons now, and it might be time to start looking at him as a risk/reward WR3.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 2/21/18 11:50am ET
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery's (shoulder) surgery for his torn right rotator cuff could keep him sidelined until the preseason. As reported earlier, Jeffery suffered the injury last offseason, but the pain and discomfort were not so severe to keep Jeffery from playing.
Huddle Up: Jeffery has several months to recover from the surgery, but the fact that he may miss the preseason is cause for concern. If he runs into one setback there's a good chance he will miss regular season time. He has low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 upside when fully healthy.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 2/21/18 4:56pm ET
Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) will miss at least six months and likely will miss the entire preseason but is expected to be ready for Week 1, according to a source. His surgery was to repair a full tear of his rotator cuff.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation during the offseason and training camp to see if he will be in any danger of missing Week 1. He played very well in his first season with the Eagles and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver if he is healthy.
LeGarrette Blount - RBPosted 2/19/18 11:46am ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount wants to return to the Eagles, he told NFL Network during an interview.
Huddle Up: Blount will be playing in an age-32 season in 2018. He mustered only two rushing TDs in 2017's regular season but found paydirt in each of the three playoff games for Philly. The Eagles have a lot of talented bodies and may opt for a cheaper, more versatile rotation. Assuming Blount returns, he's merely fantasy roster depth in the waning rounds of a draft.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 2/16/18 6:23pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor will likely receive a long-term extension that averages around $9-10 million per year, according to Geoff Mosher of 97.5 The Fanatic.
Huddle Up: Agholor was able to shed his bust label, emerging as one of Philadelphia's top weapons in the passing game. His arrow is suddenly pointing way up, and he'll be a WR3 candidate heading into 2018.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 2/16/18 6:32pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith is unlikely to return to the team next season, according to Geoff Mosher of 97.5 The Fanatic.
Huddle Up: Smith was an afterthought in the Philadelphia passing game, and it's hard to imagine a scenario where he will have much fantasy value in 2018.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 2/15/18 4:43pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) said he will not change his playing style even though he is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Huddle Up: Wentz hopes to be ready for the start of the 2018 season, so owners should keep an eye on the situation during the offseason. He is coming off a terrific 2017 season and should be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback next season. Owners interested in Wentz may want a strong backup in case he is not ready for the opener.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 2/5/18 8:54am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) was throwing 50-yard passes in warmups at the Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 4.
Huddle Up: Wentz should be ready well in advance of the 2018 season and will be a midrange QB1 option in fantasy.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 2/4/18 6:58am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) will begin doing weight-bearing exercises Wednesday, Feb. 7, with the brace on his knee being unlocked for the first time since he was placed on injured reserve. Barring any setbacks, Wentz could be able to do some work in training camp and the possibility remains that he could be ready for the start of the 2018 regular season.
Huddle Up: Wentz is recovering from both a torn anterior cruciate ligament and lateral collateral ligament in his left knee but once he resumes exercising in a few days, his recovery timetable would be similar to an athlete who only had a torn ACL. As long as he remains healthy, he should be viewed as a QB1 in all fantasy formats.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 2/4/18 12:13pm ET
The Philadelphia Eagles are expecting to receive trade interest on QB Nick Foles this offseason.
Huddle Up: Foles has played well after taking over for Carson Wentz and could be an option for teams looking for a starting quarterback. He probably would be only a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for a team next season.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 2/4/18 7:33pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles was named the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl LII, completing 28 of his 43 passes for 373 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a 41-33 win over the New England Patriots. He also caught a one-yard touchdown pass.
Huddle Up: Despite grabbing MVP honors and leading the Eagles to the title, Foles will resume backing up Carson Wentz in 2018 unless another team trades for him.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 2/4/18 8:28pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery caught three passes on eight targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in a 41-33 win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
Huddle Up: After hauling in nine touchdowns during the regular season, Jeffery added three more in the playoffs. His big-play ability gives him WR2 potential heading into 2018.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 2/4/18 8:37pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor caught nine passes on 11 targets for 84 yards in a 41-33 win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
Huddle Up: The former first-round bust turned into a dynamic slot receiver in 2017, catching eight touchdowns and topping 700 yards. He's a legitimate WR3 candidate heading into 2018.
Corey Clement - RBPosted 2/4/18 8:53pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Corey Clement rushed three times for eight yards and caught four passes for 100 yards and a touchdown in a 41-33 win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
Huddle Up: With LeGarrette Blount headed to free agency, Clement could easily end up as the No. 2 back in Philadelphia behind Jay Ajayi. If that's the case, he'll be among the must-own backup running backs next season.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 2/2/18 1:19pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Feb. 2, and is not on the injury report for Super Bowl LII.
Huddle Up: Ajayi should receive a solid amount of touches against the New England Patriots. Ajayi has a chance to be the starting running back for the Eagles next season and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy running back in leagues next season.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 2/1/18 2:31pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Feb. 1.
Huddle Up: Ajayi has played well since joining the Eagles and should have a solid role against the New England Patriots. He likely will receive a bigger role next season and could be the starter depending on what the team does at the position. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most fantasy leagues if he starts.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/31/18 3:06pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 31.
Huddle Up: Ajayi should receive a solid amount of touches against the New England Patriots this week. Ajayi has a chance to be the team's top running back next season and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy running back depending on his role.
