Eagles | Philly high on Sam Bradford

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 13:46:21 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was valued high by head coach Chip Kelly and owner Jeffrey Lurie before they traded for him this offseason. Lurie said this week that the Eagles evaluated Bradford as "the best young quarterback we'd seen… probably since Peyton Manning coming out of college" leading up to the 2010 NFL Draft. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, who worked with Bradford while with the St. Louis Rams, was maybe the strongest advocate of Bradford before the trade went down.

Fantasy Tip: The biggest obstacle for Bradford will be his health, as he's missed most of the last two seasons with knee issues. He could be a low-end fantasy starter most weeks because of the Eagles' offensive system, but you shouldn't draft him as anything more than a midrange QB2 with upside.

Eagles | Chip Kelly favors one-cut runners

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 06:58:57 -0700

The Philadelphia Eagles traded RB LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills because head coach Chip Kelly desires a one-cut running back, according to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie. Lurie praised McCoy as a player, but the move was not financially driven. Kelly felt he could garner more production from a different running back or two. Lurie used the term "power spread" on multiple occasions to describe Kelly's offense. RBs DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews figure to share the work.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was one of the best players in fantasy last season, but there's almost no way he can repeat that kind of performance with two other legit backs wanting the ball. With Sproles an elite receiver from the RB position, Murray may find it difficult to repeat his 57 receptions from a year ago. Murray still rates as a mid-to-low RB1. Sproles is a capable RB3 in PPR leagues. Mathews' role is a little cloudy, but he is likely a low-end RB3 for now.

Rams | Nick Foles didn't see trade coming

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 08:33:03 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles said he didn't know the Philadelphia Eagles were looking to trade him, despite rumors swirling about their intentions, and the first time he learned about the move was the moment Eagles head coach Chip Kelly called him to say Foles had been dealt to the Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Foles seemingly needed a fresh start away from Kelly, whether he'll admit it or not. Fantasy owners will be happy, sort of, since the young quarterback has more job security. To the contrary, he also has fewer weapons than he was accustom to in Philly. Consider Foles a No. 2 quarterback with weekly starting consideration based on the matchups. He and his situation are ideal fits for DFS players at FantasyScore.

Eagles | PHI confident in young receivers

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 14:37:40 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WRs Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff will forcibly have increased roles in 2015 with the departure of WR Jeremy Maclin to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Philadelphia staff is reportedly confident enough in the development of the two receivers, as well as second-year TE Zach Ertz.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews will be the receiver to own in Philadelphia this season. He came on strong with QB Mark Sanchez last year, but will have a new quarterback in Sam Bradford this year. Huff still has much to prove, but the talent and potential are there, possibly giving him sleeper appeal in this year's drafts.
