Eagles | PHI rescinds Chris Polk's tender

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:28:35 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles restricted free-agent RB Chris Polk's tender offer has been rescinded by the Eagles, according to a source. Polk will become an unrestricted free agent and allowed to sign with any team.

Fantasy Tip: Polk probably will receive some interest from teams in free agency but likely will only be a backup for his next team. His fantasy value will be determined by which team he joins, but he probably will not be more than a late-round pick in all leagues.

Eagles | Chris Polk the goal-line back?

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 10:18:47 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk appears to have become the team's goal-line back of late, and two of the three snaps he played in Week 15 led to short rushing touchdowns. On another snap inside the five-yard line, RB Darren Sproles took the ball for a TD. The Eagles have struggled in the red zone this year, and they think Polk's size and power gives him an advantage at the goal line. "Some of the short-yardage stuff, Polk's obviously a little bit more powerful back, so they've been giving him some of the runs in short-yardage in a couple games, especially last game," RB LeSean McCoy said. McCoy has 10 carries inside the five-yard line this year and has three touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Polk ($3,300) is a very deep flex play, at best, at FantasyScore, and the matchup against the Washington Redskins isn't a good one for either Polk or LeSean McCoy ($7,100) in Week 16.

Eagles | Chris Polk runs with first team

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 21:55:37 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk opened practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, running with the first-team offense while RB LeSean McCoy looked on from the sideline.

Fantasy Tip: It's too early to tell if this means anything, and McCoy did not seem terribly concerned. FantasyScore owners will want to follow the situation this week to see if Polk has worked his way into a bigger role. If so, he could be a steal in Week 16 at just $3,300 (or 6.6% of the cap) in FantasyScore.

Eagles | Chris Polk could see bigger role

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 21:34:39 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk (hamstring) could see a bigger role in the offense in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals if RB Darren Sproles (knee) is unable to play. Sproles is questionable for the game, while Polk is listed as probable. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Friday, Oct. 24, that the team would use Polk in the same ways they've used Sproles this season.

Fantasy Tip: If Sproles is inactive, Polk could be worth using as a flex option in FantasyScore at just $3,000 (or 6.0 percent of the cap).

Eagles | Chris Polk on 53-man roster

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 21:59:32 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk is included on the team's 53-man roster, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Polk is still way down on the depth chart, so his fantasy appeal will be minimal unless injuries to LeSean McCoy or Darren Sproles open up a bigger role. Polk will fight Kenjon Barner for scraps in the meantime.

Eagles | Chris Polk in line for more carries

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 19:24:08 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk should serve as RB LeSean McCoy's primary backup this year with RB Darren Sproles maintaining a secondary role in the offense, according to ESPN.com's Joe Kaiser.

Fantasy Tip: With Bryce Brown being traded to the Buffalo Bills in the offseason, an injury to McCoy would mean a serious workload for Polk. He is worth considering as a handcuff if you draft McCoy.
