Eagles | Philly defense simplified

Tue, 31 May 2016 08:41:59 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles CB Nolan Carroll believes defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's new 4-3 defensive scheme is much simpler than the defense they used last year. "Corners, for us, it's man-to-man, we're pressed up," Carroll said. "We know we have deep safety help and we just have to get the job done at the line. The guys up front, our D-line, he just tells them to rush. There's no two-gapping, there's none of that stuff. Our defense is built around our D-line and then getting after the quarterback and disrupting timing, and our linebackers are cleaning everything up."

Eagles | Carson Wentz off to fast start

Tue, 31 May 2016 02:48:32 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has displayed an NFL-caliber arm and the ability to make every throw on the route-tree during practice, and beat writer Matt Lombardo believes Wentz seems to be ahead of QB Sam Bradford when it comes to mastering head coach Doug Pederson's offense.

Fantasy Tip: Based on experience, Bradford still has to be the frontrunner to open the year as the starter, but Wentz is obviously the future. Neither quarterback should be viewed as a fantasy starter in 2016, but whoever lands the starting gig could be a serviceable backup.

Eagles | Kenjon Barner working with starters

Mon, 30 May 2016 02:51:57 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner has been working with the starters during OTAs with RB Ryan Mathews (groin) slowed by injury and RB Darren Sproles not participating, and beat writer Eliot Shorr-Parks believes Barner's edge over Mathews in speed and agility could earn him the starting job permanently.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews could still end up seeing a lot of the early-down work, but Barner is worth grabbing in the later rounds, especially in PPR leagues. He could end up being a sneaky flex option.

Fri, 27 May 2016 18:15:29 -0700

Eagles | Philly teammates on board with Sam Bradford

Fri, 27 May 2016 11:23:59 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins said the Eagles aren't harboring any ill feelings toward QB Sam Bradford after he skipped the start of the offseason program and demanded a trade. "But I think right now, barring anything crazy or anything changing over the next few months, I think everybody is very comfortable with Sam and looking forward to him falling into that role," Jenkins said.

Fantasy Tip: That stance could change quickly if Bradford struggles out of the gates in 2016. Bradford has been too injury-prone and inconsistent to use as anything more than a fantasy backup so far in his career.

Eagles | Rueben Randle out a couple weeks

Wed, 25 May 2016 12:48:52 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle (gallbladder) is fine, according to a source, but he is extremely sore and will be out two to three weeks while he recovers from having his gallbladder removed, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Randle has an opportunity to be the No. 2 wide receiver for the Eagles this year behind Jordan Matthews. Nelson Agholor will be right there, too, though. Randle will need to prove himself on a new team and in a new offense. He's worth a look as a low-end WR4 or WR5.

Eagles | No QB order set in Philly

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:33:46 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich said that the order set with QB Sam Bradford as the No. 1, QB Chase Daniel as the backup and QB Carson Wentz as the third guy is "probably not the right impression." "But the other thing that -- as coaches -- that you've got to establish is a culture of competition. This is one of the most competitive industries in the world and so, to say that there's not competition, that's just the furthest thing from the truth."

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Doug Pederson confirmed that Bradford was the starter recently after the quarterback ended his brief holdout. It's likely just coach speak from Reich, and we fully expect Bradford to enter Week 1 as the starter. Bradford's leash could be short, though, since Pederson has an affinity for Daniel and Wentz has the skills to be serviceable in the NFL quickly. Bradford, or whoever is starting for Philly in 2016, should be firmly in the fantasy backup conversation.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews sitting out

Tue, 24 May 2016 07:47:43 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (illness) is out of practice Tuesday, May 24, due to illness.

Fantasy Tip: With all the buzz hovering over the quarterback situation, something that hasn't had much of a spotlight on it is that Mathews is in line to see the bulk of the work in the backfield. The team traded DeMarco Murray, and trade rumors surround Darren Sproles. Mathews could wind up a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues.

Eagles | Rueben Randle has surgery

Tue, 24 May 2016 07:47:03 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle (gallbladder) is out of practice Tuesday, May 24, due to a recent gallbladder surgery.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown how serious the procedure was or how long he's slated to miss. Randle is a WR4 consideration at full strength, but check back for updates.

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:41:11 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles OG Isaac Seumalo is expected to compete with OG Allen Barbre during training camp but is not able to participate in offseason workouts at this point because Oregon State uses the quarter system for their classes.

Eagles | Zach Ertz not worried about QB situation

Thu, 19 May 2016 19:13:18 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz said he isn't going to run his routes any differently for QB Sam Bradford than he would for QB Carson Wentz.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has TE1 potential, but consistency has been an issue throughout his career. The quarterback situation shouldn't impact his value too much, and Ertz's upside is worth taking a chance on if you wait until later in your draft to address the tight end spot.
