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.
Wendell Smallwood - RBPosted 3/2/17 7:05pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood in the mix at running back, according to head coach Doug Pederson, and Perderson said he wants to see where Smallwood is at physically coming off a knee injury last season.
Huddle Up: Smallwood could emerge as Philadelphia's starting back this season, but he could also be part of a committee. He has RB2 upside if things break in his favor, so keep tabs on him throughout the offseason.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 3/1/17 7:15pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz experienced soreness in his right elbow last season - a problem the team believes was related to his throwing mechanics, according to a source.
Huddle Up: While it is true he was forced to throw more often than he ever did in college as Philadelphia's season began to unravel, the No. 2 overall pick's delivery started rivaling that of Blake Bortles and Byron Leftwich by the time the season was ending. As long as the Eagles address their receiver woes and Wentz cleans up his mechanics, he should be a solid QB2 in 2017.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 2/28/17 7:05am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is an attractive chip for luring free-agent receivers, according to several insiders.
Huddle Up: Wentz was solid as a rookie, completing 62.4 percent of his passes, 3,782 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He has upside for improvement as a high-end QB2 in fantasy.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 2/25/17 7:17pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz worked out with California WR Chad Hansen and Eastern Washington WR Cooper Kupp.
Huddle Up: Wentz showed promise in his rookie campaign, and he is a QB2 with upside heading into 2017.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 2/12/17 6:03pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) is going to be fine following surgery to repair a fractured fibula, according to Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles, who had the same surgery in 2006. 'So Marcus is going to be good to go,' Sproles said. 'He'll probably be better than ever.'
Huddle Up: Mariota showcased a high ceiling last year, and with Tennessee likely to add a weapon or two on the offensive side, he is a QB1 candidate in 2017.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 2/3/17 9:15pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz said he is 'excited' to have quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo back in 2017 and expects the continuity to lead to more growth.
Huddle Up: Wentz closed his rookie year on a high note, and while he can't be expected to reach QB1 status yet, he is one of the more intriguing prospect in keeper formats and a QB2 in redraft leagues.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 1/25/17 8:23am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews is expected to be released in the offseason, in the opinion of PhillyVoice.com's Jimmy Kempski.
Huddle Up: Mathews' season was cut short with a neck injury, and it could threaten his career. His fantasy forecast is pretty cloudy for 2017.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 1/24/17 9:00pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz will train with quarterback guru Adam Dedeaux this offseason, according to his agent Ryan Tollner.
Huddle Up: This is notable because Dedeaux has worked with several big-name quarterbacks over the years, such as Tom Brady and Drew Brees to name a couple, and also played a role in Matt Ryan's remarkable MVP-type resurgence this year after working with him over six weeks this past summer. Wentz had an encouraging rookie campaign, and this connection figures to only accelerate his development in year two.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 1/15/17 6:54pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz said he is going to take some time off to rest his body, especially his arm, before working to improve his throwing mechanics. Wentz said his offseason training program could include sessions with quarterback guru Tom House.
Huddle Up: Wentz had an up-and-down rookie campaign, but he showed promise. He will be a QB2 in redraft leagues in 2017 with added value in keeper formats.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 1/14/17 6:58pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor dropped six of his 66 targets this season, and his drop rate of 9.1 percent was the third worst in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Agholor was a first-round pick, so the Eagles will give him every chance to succeed. However, the chances of him turning things around seem slim, and he is nothing more than a late-round lottery ticket heading into 2017.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 1/13/17 8:20pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz credits his strong finish to the 2016 season to improved chemistry with QB Carson Wentz, and Ertz plans to continue to develop chemistry with Wentz by working with him over the offseason.
Huddle Up: Ertz hauled in 40 passes for 443 yards over the final five games, showcasing his upside as a pass-catcher. Consistency has been an issue for Ertz, but unless the Eagles dramatically upgrade their receiving corps this offseason, Ertz should continue to provide TE1 numbers as Wentz's safety net.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 1/1/17 1:44pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz threw for 245 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Jan. 1, in a 27-13 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Now that Doug Pederson is returning for another year, Wentz will have someone in his corner for the time being. Wentz started strong, faded down the stretch, but finished with a decent outing. He should be a decent QB2 option going into the offseason.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 1/1/17 2:14pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught 13 of his 16 targeted passes for 139 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a 27-13 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Ertz has been QB Carson Wentz's big weapon all season, and that was true Sunday as well. Ertz is easily a TE1 heading into the offseason, as Wentz has made no secret of Ertz being one of his favorite targets.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 12/31/16 9:07am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) was very limited during practice Friday, Dec. 30, and may not be able to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Matthews will be in uniform, but he will be a risky option if he plays since he may receive limited playing time. Owners may want to look for other options to use in case Matthews sits out.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 12/30/16 7:24am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles plans to play one more season in 2017.
Huddle Up: Sproles will be in his usual role as a receiving/change-of-pace back behind Byron Marshall against the Dallas Cowboys. As is the case every week, he's a risky flex option in PPR formats.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 12/30/16 7:55am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) is questionable for Week 17. He practiced Friday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Matthews seems to be in line to play against the Dallas Cowboys, but that's not a given since it's the season finale. He would be a WR3 option in PPR formats if he goes.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 12/30/16 5:01pm ET
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is listed questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Matthews will play, but he has been able to play with the injury over the last few weeks. He has a solid role in the passing game and can be a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
