Carson Wentz - QBPosted 6/17/17 5:22pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz 'appeared to hit his stride' during the team's three-day minicamp, throwing crisper and more accurate passes than he did at the beginning. 'It's coming. I would say that obviously he's been working extremely hard at everything we've done. He?s really understanding our offense and our scheme ? making good choices and decisions with the ball. He's been sharp. It's exciting to watch him,' head coach Doug Pederson said.
Huddle Up: The reports on Wentz and his improved mechanics have been positive thus far, although he was probably a sure bet anyway to build on a promising rookie year following the additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith at receiver. Last year's No. 2 overall pick should be solid QB2 in fantasy most weeks who should occasionally flirt with QB1 numbers in good matchups.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 6/15/17 2:21pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) expects to be ready for training camp despite dealing with knee tendinitis.
Huddle Up: Matthews will man the slot again this year with newly acquired teammates Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith playing on the outside. With the added company, Matthews' stock takes a hit and places him in the WR3 to WR4 conversation.
Donnel Pumphrey - RBPosted 6/15/17 6:47pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood has seen noticeably fewer reps than RB Donnel Pumphrey during practice, according to Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com
Huddle Up: The addition of LeGarrette Blount and the emergence of Pumphrey has torpedoed Smallwood's once promising fantasy stock. At this point, Pumphrey looks like the back to invest in for keeper formats. He could eventually replace Darren Sproles as the third-down back.
Donnel Pumphrey - RBPosted 6/13/17 7:56am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Donnel Pumphrey continues to work with the first-team offense in camp, and the team is preparing him for a role in the offense.
Huddle Up: He'll have to usurp Darren Sproles to have a significant impact in fantasy, and that's not out of the question. He has some RB5 value in PPR leagues right now.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 6/11/17 6:23pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery said he and QB Carson Wentz and the rest of the offense are starting to click.
Huddle Up: Jeffery's injury history makes him a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option, but you have to start thinking about taking the gamble when it comes time to draft your WR2.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 6/8/17 8:02am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) could play if this were the regular season, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Matthews has yet to take that next step to prove he's the go-to guy on a team. He remains a WR3 candidate in fantasy.
Donnel Pumphrey - RBPosted 6/5/17 6:23am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Donnel Pumphrey will finish his rookie season with more receiving than rushing yards, in the opinion of NJ Advance Media's Matt Lombardo.
Huddle Up: Pumphrey would need Darren Sproles to suffer an injury in order to grab a larger role in the passing game. Consider the San Diego State product a late-round flier in deep PPR leagues, but he is more safely left for the waiver wire.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 6/5/17 4:16pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith caught multiple deep throws from QB Carson Wentz during organized team activities Monday, June 5. Smith said he is still working on improving his chemistry with Wentz.
Huddle Up: Smith is coming off a disappointing 2016 season where he posted 267 yards and three touchdowns in 12 games. He should be more involved in the Eagles passing game and likely will be used as a deep threat. Owners should consider Smith as a No. 5 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 6/5/17 4:47pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) did not participate in organized team activities Monday, June 5, because of knee tendinitis.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye out on the situation to see if Matthews is still dealing with this injury when training camp starts. Matthews probably will continue to be used as a slot receiver and should see a solid amount of targets if he is healthy. He can be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
LeGarrette Blount - RBPosted 6/5/17 4:37pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) did not participate in organized team activities Monday, June 5, because of an illness.
Huddle Up: Blount should be fine for the start of training camp and could return for minicamp. Blount probably will receive a majority of the carries for the Eagles this season and can be considered a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 running back in leagues because of his touchdown potential.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 6/4/17 7:35am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) missed the final practice of OTAs last week due to tendinitis in his knee.
Huddle Up: Although Matthews is expected to play his natural position of slot receiver in 2017, owners shouldn't expect an improvement to his 73-804-3 stat line due to the offseason acquisitions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith. View him as a WR3 in most fantasy formats.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 5/27/17 9:53am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is noticeably stronger and appears to be throwing the ball better than he did as a rookie, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.
Huddle Up: It would have been a surprise if this wasn't the case, but it is still good to hear nonetheless. The Eagles overhauled their receiver corps in the offseason and that alone should give Wentz to occasionally flirt with QB1 value, even though he'll likely settle in as a midrange QB2.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 5/27/17 9:04pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith will look more like the receiver he was with the Baltimore Ravens, according to beat writer Tim McManus.
Huddle Up: Smith still has big-play speed, and he is worth a look as a WR5 in case he does rebound in 2017.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 5/26/17 6:57pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor has benefited from the offseason additions to the receiving corps, according to head coach Doug Pederson. 'As I've said all along, competition, man, sharpens you,' Pederson said Tuesday, May 23. 'And that's what I've seen from Nelson. He's done a great job already this spring.'
Huddle Up: Agholor has been a huge bust up to this point, and even if he is finally putting it all together, it might be too little too late with Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith now in the mix. He doesn't need to be drafted.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 5/25/17 8:21pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz said he loves what WR Alshon Jeffery brings to the table and is looking forward to developing chemistry with the receiver. 'He plays on time, he knows what he's doing, his catch radius is impressive,' Wentz said 'That's the first thing that jumps out at me. I'm just looking forward to continuing to build that relationship.'
Huddle Up: Injuries are a constant concern with Jeffery, but he could shine as the likely go-to target in Philadelphia. His upside makes him worth the gamble as a WR2.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 5/14/17 6:11pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery has embraced the coaching staff and has been competing at a high level since joining the team, according to head coach Doug Pederson, and Pederson said the hope for the offseason is to have Jeffery and QB Carson Wentz on the same page.
Huddle Up: Jeffery's upside is undeniable, but injuries have derailed him throughout his career. He should immediately become the go-to target for Wentz, and he is worth the gamble as a low-end WR2.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 4/29/17 6:30pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (back) has been cleared to work out, executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said Saturday, April 29.
Huddle Up: Mathews has battled injuries his entire career, and even if he ends up leading Philadelphia's backfield to start 2017, you can't count on him being available the entire season. Consider him a RB4 or RB5 at this point.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 4/27/17 11:50am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (eyes) underwent laser eye surgery this offseason.
Huddle Up: Wentz has a nice receiving tandem to look to this year in Alshon Jeffery and Jordan Matthews. He conducted a promising rookie campaign last year, although he only threw two more touchdowns than interceptions (16 and 14). The future is bright, but Wentz remains out of the QB1 conversation heading into his sophomore season.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 4/21/17 9:28am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews could be available for trade at some point this year because 'he's going to expect more money than what he's worth,' according to Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski.
Huddle Up: Despite his size, Matthews excels more in the slot than he does on the outside in an offense that isn't nearly as wide-open as former head coach Chip Kelly's was. Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith signed as free agents in March, so Matthews is unlikely to see any of his numbers from last year (73 catches, 804 yards and three touchdowns) increase in 2017.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 4/18/17 10:56am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz's elbow wasn't a problem during his rookie season, dispelling reports suggesting he dealt with soreness, he said during a Monday, April 17, press conference at the Eagles' NovaCare Complex.
Huddle Up: Wentz threw 607 times in 2016, which was a Philly rookie record, but general soreness seems to be the issue here. Wentz has an upgraded cast of weapons and is on track for a strong 2017 fantasy season with QB1 considerations.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 4/17/17 11:30am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz said his focus this offseason has been on his footwork.
Huddle Up: Wentz was a pleasant surprise for the most part in his first professional football season. Unfortunately, his touchdown to interception ratio left something to be desired (8:7). Improved footwork will help, but Wentz remains a backup fantasy quarterback in his second NFL season.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 4/1/17 6:43pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz was named by three personnel executives as the quarterback from the last two drafts that they would pick to build around, and one NFL coach said the Eagles can win a Super Bowl with Wentz under center.
Huddle Up: Wentz had an uneven rookie year, but he showed signs of becoming a reliable starter. He is worth grabbing as a QB2 in 2017, especially after the Eagles upgraded the receiving corps in the offseason.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 3/30/17 6:56pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews is a 'big part' of the offense and a 'dynamic' slot receiver, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Philadelphia's offseason additions should allow Matthews work primarily out of the slot. Playing in his natural position, he should deliver WR3 production.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 3/30/17 7:48pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor is still 'very capable of playing at a high level,' according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Agholor has been a bust up to this point, and offseason additions to the receiving corps will only push him further down the depth chart. He can probably be left on waivers to start the season.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 3/17/17 7:25pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles said he is embracing his role as the backup quarterback and is focusing on helping QB Carson Wentz in any way he can.
Huddle Up: The addition of Foles probably won't do much for Wentz, but the addition of Alshon Jeffery should. After a decent rookie campaign, Wentz looks like a solid QB2 in 2017.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 3/13/17 6:28am ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz restructured his contract Monday, March 13, according to a source. The move turned $3.225 million into a signing bonus and created $2.58 million in salary cap space.
Huddle Up: Ertz put together a solid 78-816-4 season, but he has the propensity for injury. He's a midrange TE1 option in fantasy.
Malcolm Jenkins - SPosted 3/11/17 4:40pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles S Malcolm Jenkins was part of a package the team used in attempt to acquire former New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks before he was traded to the New England Patriots. The Eagles offered Jenkins, a 2017 third-round pick and a 2017 fourth-round pick, but the Saints wanted a second-round pick plus Jenkins.
Huddle Up: The Saints ultimately settled on a first- and third-round pick from the Patriots in exchange for Cooks and a fourth-rounder. Especially considering how deep this year's draft is and the fact Jenkins spent the first five years of his career in New Orleans, it is a bit hard to believe the Saints accepted the Patriots' offer over the Eagles'. Nevertheless, Cooks should be a solid albeit slightly inconsistent WR2 in fantasy with New England in 2017.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 3/6/17 6:24am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews could be acquired in a trade for the right price, in the opinion of Yahoo! Sports' Charles Robinson.
Huddle Up: Matthews fizzled with a 73-804-3 season last year. Two years ago, his 85-997-8 line spread optimism that he could be elevating to an upper tier. If he returns to that form, he's a high-end WR2, but he'll probably dwell in the lower portions of second receivers in drafts.
Chase Daniel - QBPosted 3/5/17 9:21am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Chase Daniel could be the 'best possible option' for the New York Jets, according to NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes.
Huddle Up: The Eagles have made Daniel available via trade with his $7 million salary, and he has plenty of experience in West Coast systems like the one new offensive coordinator John Morton is expected to install. With the Jets in the middle of purging their roster, Daniel would be difficult to use as anything more than a bye-week option in fantasy.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 3/4/17 3:25pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews 'probably has played his last game for the Eagles', according to the Philadelphia Daily News' Paul Domowitch.
Huddle Up: Mathews is entering his age-30 season, coming off a serious neck injury and owed a non-guaranteed $4 million salary in 2017, so Domowitch is probably right. Wendell Smallwood, Darren Sproles, Kenjon Barner, Byron Marshall and Terrell Watson are all under contract as well, although none of them can be viewed as the long-term answer in Philadelphia. Expect the Eagles to take advantage of the deep draft class at running back sometime on the second or third day of the draft.
