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.

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.

Mon, 18 Jan 2016 11:21:19 -0800

Eagles | Phiadelphia interested in Doug Pederson

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 07:32:37 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson is believed to be a leading candidate for the Philadelphia Eagles' head coaching vacancy, according to multiple sources.

As a former NFL quarterback, Sam Bradford is likely to benefit from Pederson's potential hiring, assuming the soon-to-be free agent returns to the team in 2016.
