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.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/29/18 11:30pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will have registered the third-fewest starts (three) during the regular season of any quarterback to start under center in the ensuing Super Bowl. Retired QBs Jeff Hostetler and Doug Williams, with two apiece, were the only other quarterbacks to have started fewer games during the season prior to their starts in the Super Bowl -- both went on to win.
Huddle Up: Foles posted mostly unspectacular stats in his three starts during the regular season but he's certainly turned it up a few notches since, completing more than 75 percent of his passes in both playoff games and compiling nearly 600 yards in the process. That also includes an incredible performance against the No. 1-ranked defense in the NFC Championship. The Patriots allowed more passing yards than all but two teams this year, so Foles will be looking to pick up where he left off.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 1/26/18 11:12am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) said the timetable for his return is fluid but hopes to be ready for regular season opener next season. He said he tore his lateral collateral ligament in addition to his anterior cruciate ligament during the season.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Wentz's progress during the offseason to see if he will be ready for Week 1. He was one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL this season and should be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2018 as long as he is healthy.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/26/18 12:25pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 26.
Huddle Up: Ajayi has played well since joining the Eagles and could enter the 2018 season as the team's starting running back. He can be a No. 2 fantasy running back next season if he receives most of the touches at the position.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/25/18 11:40am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 25, after being a full participant Wednesday, Jan. 24.
Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like Ajayi's ankle issue is serious. He should be fine by February 4. A lot of pieces have to fall into place regarding Philadelphia's backfield puzzle, but Ajayi stands to be the most attractive option heading into the 2018 season.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/25/18 6:12pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles was 2-for-13 during the regular season and first postseason game on throws of 20 yards or more prior to the club's NFC Championship win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Jan. 21, in which he finished 4-for-5 on such passes for 172 yards.
Huddle Up: This could be the key to the Eagles potentially pulling off the upset in Super Bowl 52, as Foles was able to have his way on deep throws thanks to Philadelphia's utilization of run-pass option plays. While New England sports a quality defensive unit, Foles was able to enjoy last week's success against the No.1-ranked defense in football, making it possible he can do the same opposite the Patriots.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/24/18 11:31am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (ribs) said he did have X-Rays on his injured ribs but said the ribs are 'great.'
Huddle Up: Foles has another week and a half for his ribs to heal. He should be good to go for the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, the Super Bowl may very well be Foles' last meaningful game with the Eagles with Carson Wentz returning from a torn ACL next season. Wentz deserves to be one of the first handful of quarterbacks selected in 2018 fantasy drafts.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/24/18 1:37pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (ankle) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Jan. 24.
Huddle Up: Ajayi is the apparent future of Philadelphia's backfield. He eventually saw most of the work among Eagles running backs in 2017 after being acquired from the Miami Dolphins. Additionally, LeGarrette Blount and Darren Sprols are both set to hit the free-agent market this offseason. That being said, Ajayi's fantasy ceiling reaches RB2 territory.
LeGarrette Blount - RBPosted 1/23/18 12:42am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount moved up to seventh on the NFL's all-time postseason rushing touchdown leaderboard, scoring his 10th career playoff touchdown on the ground in the team's Conference Championship win Sunday, Jan. 21, against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Despite registering single-digit rush attempts in each of Philadelphia's first two playoff games, Blount has managed to make the most of his work, as he's found the end zone in both contests. Jay Ajayi has been getting the bulk of the carries, but even so, Blount should continue to remain a force in red-zone and goaline situations.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/22/18 11:47pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles' 97.0 Total QBR in the team's NFC Conference Championship victory over the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Jan. 21, was the fourth-highest QBR in a playoff game since 2006, which is as far back as the metric goes.
Huddle Up: It was truly a marvel to watch, as Foles had arguably the game of his life against the NFL's No. 1-ranked defense in both fewest points and yards allowed during the 2017 season. Overall, the 29-year-old completed 26-of-33 passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns, with no interceptions. He has another tough defense on tap next in the Super Bowl but Foles has proven to be very good in his playoff action thus far.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 1/21/18 6:42pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 26 of his 33 pass attempts for 352 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Foles was supposed to be a liability for the Eagles, but he ended up shredding the best defense in the NFL. He will certainly boost his long-term stock if he can manage a similar showing in the Super Bowl.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/21/18 6:54pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi rushed 18 times for 73 yards and caught three passes for 26 yards in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Ajayi has emerged as Philadelphia's top back during the postseason, showing RB2 potential for 2018.
