Josh Adams - RBPosted 6/24/19 11:18am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Josh Adams could very well be on the outside looking in when final cuts are announced given his overall lack of versatility, in the opinion of NBC Sports Philadelphia's Reuben Frank.
Huddle Up: Frank makes a solid case for how Adams can make the team, as he flashed big-play ability prior to hurting his shoulder seriously enough to need surgery to repair a torn labrum. He cites the Eagles' running back depth as the main reason why the second-year runner may be out of a job, as Philadelphia added Miles Sanders and Jordan Howard to a group that already included Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood. Either way, Adams figures to struggle for fantasy relevancy if he remains in Philadelphia.
JJ Arcega-Whiteside - WRPosted 6/16/19 5:55pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside is the clear No. 4 receiver, according to Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com, and Rosenblatt believes Arcega-Whiteside has 'potentially elite' ability in the red zone.
Huddle Up: Although Arcega-Whiteside will have a tough time making consistent contributions in redraft leagues as a rookie, he would be worth scooping up if the Eagles suffered an injury to a starter. In the meantime, Arcega-Whiteside could be a second- round gem in rookie drafts.
Dallas Goedert - TEPosted 6/13/19 3:26pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert has looked ready to make a second-year leap into stardom in 2019, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Huddle Up: Goedert, who caught 33 passes for 334 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie after being chosen 49th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, will remain behind Zach Ertz on the Eagles' depth chart as a sophomore. He could prove to be a viable TE2 in deeper leagues and would be an instant must-add should Ertz miss any time.
Miles Sanders - RBPosted 6/13/19 6:18pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hamstring) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, head coach Doug Pederson said Thursday, June 13.
Huddle Up: If his hamstring issue lingers, it could lead to a slow start to the the year for Sanders. That being said, he should still be able to take command of the Philadelphia backfield by the end of the year. Consider him a RB4 with upside in redraft leagues and a first-round candidate in rookie drafts.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 6/12/19 1:30pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (undisclosed) is not practicing because of a lower-body injury but should be ready for training camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Agholor likely will be a top-three receiver for the Eagles this season but may not receive a lot of targets because of the other pass catchers on the roster. He can be a late-round pick in fantasy leagues but will not be a weekly starting option.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 6/12/19 8:41pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (wrist) was able to participate in practice Wednesday, June 12. He had been dealing with a wrist ailment.
Huddle Up: As long as Jeffery can stay healthy, and Carson Wentz can also stay on the field, then he will be a decent WR2 or WR3 heading into the 2019 NFL season.
Miles Sanders - RBPosted 6/11/19 10:08am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hamstring) will be held out of the team's mandatory minicamp this week due to a lingering hamstring injury, head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday, June 11.
Huddle Up: Sanders is a hot rookie name and the early favorite to lead the Philly backfield in touches. Keep an eye, though, on Sanders in training camp and see if he's able to shake his hammy issues. In the meantime, value him as a RB4.
Golden Tate - WRPosted 6/8/19 7:14pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard averaged 7.7 targets in four games without Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. last year compared to 6.1 targets in 12 games with Beckham, and Jordan Raanan of ESPNNewYork.com believes Shepard will the the No. 1 option in the passing attack ahead of WR Golden Tate in 2019.
Huddle Up: Given his familiarity with Eli Manning, it would make sense that Shepard would be the go-to option this season. There are questions about how much Manning has left in the tank, but Shepard should have a good shot at WR3 production.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 6/6/19 4:44pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz signed a four-year contract extension with the Eagles Thursday, June 6, that will run through the 2024 season. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Wentz has struggled with injuries over the last few seasons but has played well when he is on the field. He should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues in 2019.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 6/3/19 12:01pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is 'locked in potentially to a return to MVP form,' according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Head coach Doug Pederson echoed similar sentiments with reporters recently as well.
Huddle Up: Wentz missed five games last season due to a back injury and has been sidelined for eight total since playing all 16 as a rookie in 2016. With that said, it's hard to ignore the weapons he has at his disposal - Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Zach Ertz, among several others - or the solid offensive line he has protecting him. If he can play a full season again, it is quite possible Wentz can produce at a high-end fantasy QB1 level.
Miles Sanders - RBPosted 6/3/19 4:27pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, June 3.
Huddle Up: Sanders may not do anything until training camp, so fantasy owners should monitor his progress. He will be part of a crowded backfield this season but could be a late-round option in leagues depending on his role.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 5/30/19 3:37pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles (personal) participated in practice Thursday, May 30, after he missed practice Tuesday, May 28, because of a personal issue.
Huddle Up: Foles played well in limited playing time over the last few seasons but may need some time to adjust to being the starter for the Jaguars. He probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues, but fantasy players can monitor him during the preseason.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 5/21/19 7:55am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) has no limitations in organized team activities, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Wentz a year-and-a-half removed from a torn ACL that wrecked an MVP season. This will be a prove-it year to show that peak wasn't smoke and mirrors. He's a high-end option at the position with top-two upside and a mediocre floor.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 5/18/19 4:50pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has started contract extension talks with the Eagles, but the two sides are not close to an agreement at this point.
Huddle Up: Wentz is under contract for a few more years but could receive a contract extension before the start of the 2019 season. Wentz has played well when he is healthy, but he has deal with injuries over the last few seasons. He can still be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues this upcoming season.
Miles Sanders - RBPosted 5/10/19 2:53pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles second-round draft choice RB Miles Sanders signed a four-year contract with the Eagles Friday, May 10. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Sanders likely will be part of a committee at running back this season with Jordan Howard, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement also on the roster. He should be selected in all keeper leagues, but fantasy players in standard leagues should monitor him during training camp to see what his role will be in the offense.
Miles Sanders - RBPosted 5/10/19 8:14pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders 'has a chance to emerge as the most valuable piece' of the Philadelphia backfield, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Philadelphia's backfield is too crowded for Sanders to start the year as an every-down back, but he could end up seeing the most touches when all is said and done. The Eagles spent a second- round pick on him, so they should keep him busy. Sanders is worth a flier at the end of drafts.
JJ Arcega-Whiteside - WRPosted 5/7/19 11:29am ET
Philadelphia Eagles second-round WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside figures to be no better than the fourth receiver on the roster behind Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor in 2019, which makes it unlikely he will play much outside of special teams as a rookie, according to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Huddle Up: Jeffery has dealt with some serious injuries in recent years and Jackson has played 16 games only twice in 11 seasons, so there is some hope for the rookie to get some playing at some point. Dynasty leaguers should have much more interest in Arcega- Whiteside, however, as Agholor's contract expires at the end of the season, while Jeffery and Jackson's deals skyrocket in 2020. It seems reasonable Arcega-Whiteside will be counted on to start no later than next season.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 4/29/19 1:25pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz's fifth-year option was exercised Monday, April 29.
Huddle Up: Wentz has played well when he is healthy but has missed time each of the last two seasons because of injuries. He can be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in fantasy leagues, but fantasy players may want to draft a solid backup because of Wentz's injury history.
Miles Sanders - RBPosted 4/29/19 2:11pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders was drafted in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, and GM Howie Roseman said during a post-draft presser that Philadelphia has 'been looking for a runner like Miles for a few years.'
Huddle Up: The Eagles haven't exactly invested a lot to the position lately, so it is debatable whether the absence of such a runner on their roster was by choice or not. Despite only starting one full season at Penn State after being stuck behind Saquon Barkley, Sanders is a three-down back who may have to share touches initially with Jordan Howard, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement. However, it would be a surprise if he doesn't emerge from the pack and becomes a capable fantasy starter at some point in 2019.
JJ Arcega-Whiteside - WRPosted 4/26/19 6:00pm ET
Stanford WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 57th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Arcega-Whiteside probably will be the No. 4 receiver for the Eagles this season, so it is not known how many targets he will receive as a rookie. He probably will not be a great option in standard leagues but will have value in keeper leagues.
Miles Sanders - RBPosted 4/26/19 5:45pm ET
Penn State RB Miles Sanders was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 53rd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Sanders will be joining a crowded running back room with the Eagles and will have to compete for a role on offense. Owners should monitor the situation during training camp to see if Sanders will be valuable in fantasy leagues.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 4/24/19 10:26am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor could be traded if the Eagles select a wide receiver during the 2019 NFL Draft, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Agholor has been pretty consistent over the last two seasons with at least 736 yards in each of the seasons and 12 touchdowns over that span. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for a team if he is traded and could be a late-round fantasy option in 2019.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 3/25/19 5:48pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is a player the Eagles would like to sign to a contract extension at some point, according to general manager Howie Roseman.
Huddle Up: Wentz has missed time in each of the last two seasons because of injuries but is still the team's long-term option at quarterback. He has played well when he is healthy but is risky because of his injury history. He can still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
Golden Tate - WRPosted 3/14/19 1:48pm ET
Free-agent WR Golden Tate (Eagles) signed a four-year, $37.5 million deal with the New York Giants Thursday, March 14, according to a source. The deal includes $23 million fully guaranteed.
Huddle Up: This is a big move by the Giants in the wake of the Odell Beckham trade. Tate cannot replace Beckham, but he's a quality starter who will play a significant role. As such, his ceiling is in the low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 range.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 3/14/19 3:52pm ET
Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Eagles) signed a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, March 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see how Matthews will be used in the offense. He has posted only 45 receptions and 582 yards over the last two seasons and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 3/13/19 5:11pm ET
Free-agent RB Jay Ajayi (Eagles) is scheduled to meet with the Indianapolis Colts next week, according to a source. He is scheduled to undergo a physical during the visit.
Huddle Up: Ajayi probably would not be the starting running back if he signs with the Colts but could be the backup to Marlon Mack. He probably would not have a lot of fantasy value if the two sides reached an agreement.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 3/11/19 11:43am ET
Impending free-agent QB Nick Foles (Eagles) and the Jacksonville Jaguars are hoping to agree to terms sometime Monday, March 11. The Jaguars are 'cautiously optimistic' they will wrap up negotiations by the end of the day with a contract offer that could get as high as $22 million per season.
Huddle Up: Foles to Jacksonville has been the expectation for a while now. It seems highly unlikely any other team will pay that kind of dough for a quarterback who hasn't shown he can be successful anywhere outside of Philadelphia. With that said, signing with the Jaguars will reunite him with former Eagles quarterback coach John DeFilippo, who was a big part of his rebirth during Philadelphia's Super Bowl run in 2017. Foles would likely be a middling fantasy QB2 at best in Jacksonville.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 3/11/19 1:53pm ET
Free-agent QB Nick Foles (Eagles) agreed to terms on a four-year, $88 million deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday, March 11, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. There is a maximum value of $102 million.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars and Foles make a lot of sense for each other. Blake Bortles hasn't been getting the job done and Foles has shown he can be a viable NFL starter when given the opportunity. This move thrusts Foles into the QB1 conversation, although it's advisable to draft him as a QB2.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 3/11/19 7:00pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor is expected to remain with the Eagles and may not receive a new contract, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Agholor likely will be the slot receiver for the Eagles with Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson as the outside receivers. He has posted at least 700 yards in each of the last two seasons and 12 total touchdowns in those two years. He may see a decrease in targets with Jackson joining the lineup but could still be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 3/3/19 9:10am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB and pending free agent Nick Foles will sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars when free agency opens on March 13, according to league sources. The Jaguars appear to be the only serious bidder for Foles, and the two sides already have been working on a structure of a new contract after the Eagles announced they would not be placing a franchise tag on the quarterback.
Huddle Up: This has been shaping up as the most predictable move of the offseason and would put Foles on the high-end QB2 fantasy radar. In the meantime this would also breathe some fantasy stability into the top Jacksonville pass-catchers after the weekly roller-coaster they've been riding with Blake Bortles at the helm.
