Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin had a career year in 2014, but the team may have trouble re-signing him due to salary cap issues. The Eagles may not be able to retain both Maclin and RB LeSean McCoy. McCoy is under contract for another three years, but his salary cap number increases to $11.9 million in 2015, unless he restructures his current deal. If the Eagles cannot re-sign Maclin, they would have to commit more than $12 million for using the franchise tag on him.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz ranked ninth among tight ends in 2014 with 293 receiving yards out of the slot, but PhillyMag.com's Sheil Kapadia believes Ertz could see more time in the slot next year if WR Jordan Matthews spends more time outside.
Fantasy Tip: Ertz's production fluctuated throughout the year, but he showcased his pass-catching skills on multiple occasions. If he does end up in the slot more often, he will be a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. He makes a nice upside pick at the tight end spot next year.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews played 65% of the offensive snaps and ran 92.4% of his routes from the slot in 2014, per Pro FootballFocus.com. That was the role Eagles head coach Chip Kelly envisioned him in when the club drafted him last year. However, according to PhillyMag.com's Sheil Kapadia, the team could benefit from expanding Matthews' role by playing him outside more in two-wide receiver sets while keeping in him in the slot when the Eagles use three or more wide receivers.
Fantasy Tip: Matthews had a solid rookie season that flew a bit under the radar due to the great seasons of some of his rookie wide receiver peers. Anything that would expand Matthews' role would increase his 2015 value. As a second-year wide receiver in Eagles head coach Chip Kelly's high-octane offense, he already makes for a WR3 with upside.

The Philadelphia Eagles announced Monday, Jan. 19, that Cory Undlin will serve as the defensive backs coach and Justin Peelle will be the tight ends coach next season. Also, John Lovett, the team's defensive backs coach since 2013 and Ted Williams, the tight ends coach the last two years, will work in the pro scouting department.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries eventually derailed Foles's season, but his numbers had regressed already declined from the previous year. Still, any quarterback playing in Chip Kelly's offense will likely produce worthwhile fantasy numbers.
