Philadelphia Eagles news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 24 Nov 2015 15:35:31 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly may not return as head coach of the Eagles next year, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. Schefter said momentum and signs seem to be piling up against a Kelly return to Philadelphia.
Fantasy Tip: Kelly has been a polarizing figure since taking over as head coach for the Eagles. He found success with an up-tempo offense last season, but the Eagles have really struggled offensively this year. The likes of Sam Bradford, DeMarco Murray and Jordan Matthews have underwhelmed in 2015, and their fantasy value would certainly be impacted by a Chip Kelly exit.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (concussion) did not practice Tuesday, Nov. 24, and will not play in Week 12. C Jason Kelce (knee) also did not practice. LB Kiko Alonso (ankle), LB Connor Barwin (quadriceps), OT Jason Peters (back), LB DeMeco Ryans (hamstring), DE Cedric Thornton (ankle) and S Walter Thurmond (hamstring) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is out of the concussion protocol, but he's still not guaranteed to start on Thanksgiving against the Detroit Lions. If he is out again, Mark Sanchez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) should start and would be a decent sleeper choice on FantasyScore, but there are better options at quarterback, too.

Fantasy Tip: Brent Celek ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will be the Eagle's primary tight end with Ertz sidelined. He had his best game of the season last week and is worth a look on FantasyScore whether it be Mark Sanchez or Sam Bradford starting.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) had "some memory loss" after sustaining a concussion in Week 10, and he also said his separated left shoulder could keep him out again versus the Detroit Lions in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 26. "(The decision depends on) how it progresses from here to game time," Bradford said, "and whether myself and the coaches feel comfortable with me out there playing. It feels better today than it did yesterday. If it continues to progress, I'd like to be out there." Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Bradford looked good in practice Monday, Nov. 23. QB Mark Sanchez will start again if Bradford isn't ready.
Fantasy Tip: The Lions are a top-10 fantasy matchup for quarterbacks, but Bradford ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) would be a sizable risk this week. Sanchez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) didn't look good in his start last week and wouldn't be a popular daily addition if he makes a second straight start.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) or Mark Sanchez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) will get the call against the Detroit Lions. However, neither has a lot of upside on FantasyScore right now.
Tue, 24 Nov 2015 07:46:30 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Mathews ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) feels like a no-go for Thursday against the Detroit Lions. Darren Sproles ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) scored on a reception last week, but he rushed just six times for 21 yards and caught three passes. He can't be counted on at the midrange price on FantasyScore.

Philadelphia Eagles DE Cedric Thornton (ankle) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 23. OT Jason Peters (back) was limited. LBs Kiko Alonso (ankle), Connor Barwin (quadriceps) and DeMeco Ryans (hamstring) and S Walter Thurmond (hamstring) participated fully.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 12:04:01 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Bradford's status will need to be monitored throughout the week. The Eagles are on a short week, which obviously works against Bradford. If Bradford sits again, Mark Sanchez would get another start, but he's a backup fantasy quarterback right now.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 11:09:04 -0800
Fantasy Tip: The chances aren't in Ertz's favor to pass the concussion protocol and play on a short week, so he'll be extremely risky in daily leagues. Brent Celek could be a valuable sleeper pick at the position, though, especially since the Lions struggle to cover tight ends this year.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said he will not be making changes to the offensive game plan after a lopsided loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11. Kelly also said there would be no changes to defensive coordinator Bill Davis, whose defense gave up 283 rushing yards and five touchdown passes.
Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) or Mark Sanchez will have quarterback duties against the Detroit Lions this Thursday. This offense is currently in disarray, but a nice matchup against Detroit could cure their ills.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 10:51:55 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the practice participation this week since Sam Bradford is working his way back from a concussion and may push Sanchez back to the bench. Sanchez struggled in his start in Week 11 and would not be a great fantasy option if he starts.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 10:41:42 -0800
Fantasy Tip: On a short week, the chances of Ertz playing against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving probably aren't great. He'll be a risky commodity on FantasyScore. If he's out, Brent Celek could be a sneaky sleeper, considering the Lions are a top-10 PPR fantasy matchup for tight ends.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) was back at practice Monday, Nov. 23, for the first time since he was injured in Week 10. Bradford did everything the other quarterbacks did in the portion open to the media, and it looked like he might put in a full practice. It's unknown if Bradford will play in Week 12 on a short week against the Detroit Lions Thursday, Nov. 26.
Fantasy Tip: After Mark Sanchez was underwhelming replacing Bradford on Sunday, the Eagles will surely be ready to return to Bradford if he's healthy enough to play. Keep track of his practice status leading up to the Thanksgiving Day game. The Lions are a top-10 fantasy matchup for quarterbacks, so Bradford could very well be a notable value pick at the position if he plays.
