Eagles | LeSean McCoy's workload won't be lightened

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 09:24:51 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is unlikely to be in line for a smaller workload this year after leading the league in carries (314) and touches (366) last year. There were no signs that McCoy's production suffered because of his heavy workload in 2013, and he often mentions that his running style helps him take fewer big hits.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the presence of Darren Sproles in the backfield, McCoy is one of the most talented all-around running backs in the NFL. He should be considered a top-three fantasy running back in this high-paced offense.

Eagles | Three RBs to battle for spot

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 09:22:36 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RBs Matthew Tucker, Henry Josey and David Fluellen will battle it out in training camp and the preseason for the fourth running back spot. Tucker earned praise from head coach Chip Kelly earlier in the offseason. The Eagles are more likely to keep four running backs on roster this year given that RB Darren Sproles is 31 years old.

Eagles | Insist Darren Sproles is a running back

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 09:20:28 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles is a running back and not a wide receiver, the team continues to emphasize. The team's brass has bristled at the notion that Sproles will only help in the passing game. However, Sproles averaged 3.5 and 3.7 rushing attempts per game the last two years and caught 146 passes during that span, meaning he's likely to be a much bigger factor in the passing game in head coach Chip Kelly's offense.

Fantasy Tip: While Sproles could be used at times to spell McCoy in the backfield, we fully expect him to be far more effective in the passing game once again as a way to account for the loss of DeSean Jackson. As always, Sproles will be much more valuable in PPR leagues in 2014.

Eagles | Teammate impressed with Darren Sproles

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 11:35:28 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said he has been impressed with RB Darren Sproles and expects Sproles to help the offense. "Sproles has the quickest feet I've ever seen out of any player," McCoy said. "He'll help us out tremendously. I think the best thing about him, what he brings to this team is not only leadership and experience, but also just another big playmaker on the team."

Eagles | Trent Cole feeling good, not done yet

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 14:11:34 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles LB Trent Cole said earlier this week he feels good and believes he has at least three years left in the tank. With his experience, Cole said he knows how to rush the passer the right way and knows more about the game in general.

Eagles | Chris Polk in line for more carries

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 19:24:08 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk should serve as RB LeSean McCoy's primary backup this year with RB Darren Sproles maintaining a secondary role in the offense, according to ESPN.com's Joe Kaiser.

Fantasy Tip: With Bryce Brown being traded to the Buffalo Bills in the offseason, an injury to McCoy would mean a serious workload for Polk. He is worth considering as a handcuff if you draft McCoy.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews receives praise

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 12:12:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles rookie WR Jordan Matthews was recently praised by wide receivers coach Bob Bicknell, who said Matthews has looked very good, is physical and has a good feel for what he wants to do.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has built a lot of hype this offseason. He still figures to be the team's No. 3 wide receiver behind Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin. Head coach Chip Kelly said he expects Matthews to be their primary slot receiver. It's best not to get ahead of ourselves with Matthews at this point. Consider him a WR4 with WR3 upside in standard leagues.

Eagles | Brandon Graham may not make team

Sun, 13 Jul 2014 20:54:24 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles LB Brandon Graham may face an uphill battle to make the team, because he will be competing with LBs Marcus Smith, Bryan Braman and Travis Long for a roster spot. He is also scheduled to make $1.2 million this upcoming season.

Eagles | Bradley Fletcher could be on bubble

Sun, 13 Jul 2014 20:53:52 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles CB Bradley Fletcher could be on the roster bubble if he loses his starting job to CB Nolan Carroll during training camp. Fletcher is scheduled to make $3.275 million in 2014.

Eagles | Jaylen Watkins expected to help on special teams

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 09:34:19 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles CB Jaylen Watkins likely will receive most of his playing time on special teams this upcoming season but could also see time in defensive subpackages because of his ability to play cornerback and safety.

Eagles | Brent Celek could be stuck blocking a lot

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 17:14:43 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek will likely spend more time blocking than running routes this year, according to Marcus Hayes of Philly.com. With OT Dennis Kelly (back) working his way back from an injury and OT Lane Johnson being suspended the first four games, Celek is more valuable to the team as a blocker.

Fantasy Tip: While Celek's blocking ability is an asset for the Eagles, it doesn't help his fantasy value one bit. In fact, Celek's heavy blocking responsibilities make Zach Ertz the Eagles' tight end to target in fantasy leagues.

Eagles | Nick Foles focusing on improving

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 14:16:17 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles recently said his goals for this season include continuing to move better in the pocket, to be more efficient and to stay tight. He added that he wants to be smart with the ball and find his checkdowns early. Foles admitted improvement is "an everyday thing, but so far, we're looking good."

Fantasy Tip: Despite losing DeSean Jackson, the Eagles should still be one of the most prolific offenses in the league under head coach Chip Kelly. Foles averaged 22.5 fantasy points per game last season, which would have put him in QB5-QB6 territory for a full 16 game season. Consider him a QB1 in the Eagles' potent offense.

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 20:58:51 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles DE Cedric Thornton, DT Bennie Logan and DT Fletcher Cox are expected to remain the team's starting defensive front this season, according to ESPN.com's Andy Jasner. "It says a lot," Cox told CSNPhilly.com. "They believe in the guys that were in their rooms last year and they know we're headed in the right direction."

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 20:50:32 -0700
