Eagles | Wendell Smallwood to miss game

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 07:27:22 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) will not play in Week 5, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Fantasy Tip: Corey Clement and Kenjon Barner probably will be more involved in the offense with Smallwood sidelined. Clement can be a flex option in most leagues because he has been productive over the last few games. Barner could be a desperation flex option in deeper leagues since he is a similar running back to Smallwood.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount gets vote of confidence

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 09:46:22 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount is a "beast of a runner" and going to be "a big part of our offense," according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has been the opposite of a "beast" this preseason and will be hard-pressed to be a big part of the offense given he will lose late-down work to Darren Sproles. The Eagles have repeatedly and foolishly tried to get him on the perimeter this preseason and don't figure to be playing with the same degree of positive game scripts New England enjoyed last year. Blount is going to be tough to trust as anything more than a flex this season.

Eagles | Doug Pederson not giving up play-calling

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 09:17:50 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was a full-time play-caller for the first time last season and does not plan on ceding those duties to offensive coordinator Frank Reich at any point in the near future. "After going through a year of calling a full season, it's hard to give that up personally, selfishly. … You're part of the game, the whole fabric of the game. It's just hard to give it up. I'm still kind of in my mind processing all of it, how it would work if I did that (give it up). But as of right now, I'm not," Pederson said.

Eagles | Zach Ertz dealing with rib injury

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 09:23:20 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (rib) is considered week-to-week with a rib displacement and his status for Week 2 is in question, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Fantasy Tip: The rib is not broken or cracked, but it appears there is a good chance Ertz will miss the Eagles' Week 2 Monday Night Football showdown against the Chicago Bears. Preseason star Trey Burton was inactive in Week 1 due to a calf injury, so Philadelphia could be forced to rely on Brent Celek and find some help outside of the organization if Ertz and Burton don't make significant progress this week.

Eagles | Carson Wentz likely to be Week 1 inactive

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 14:46:04 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles rookie QB Carson Wentz is expected to be inactive for Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns, according to head coach Doug Pederson. "It's hard right now to look down the road, but if we had to play this week, Carson would be down. He'd be the third quarterback. He'd be deactivated. That's probably the direction we're heading," Pederson told reporters.

Fantasy Tip: This has been the expectation all along, but Peterson appears to be confirming that Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel will start the season atop the depth chart. The Eagles do have a Week 4 bye, so it is possible they could turn to Wentz if they start 0-3, although that appears unlikely. Nevertheless, Bradford's hold on the starting job will likely be tenuous all season long, making him a low-end QB2 in fantasy at best.

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 20:29:18 -0800

Eagles | West Coast offense in Philly?

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 09:23:05 -0800

With the arrival of new Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, the Eagles are expected to switch to the West Coast offense that doesn't require as much blocking for its tight ends.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz's contract extension in Philly is a good sign that Pederson wants him to be a big part of the offense moving forward. Brent Celek remains in town, too, which hurts Ertz's ceiling, but with a lack of blocking responsibilities in a new offense, Ertz could easily reach TE1 levels more weeks than not.
