Philadelphia Eagles news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 30 Sep 2014 06:45:42 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has completed 25.6 percent of his throws over 20 yards this season. He is on pace to make 156 attempts of 20 or more yards. He had 55 attempts and completed 45 percent of them last season.
Fantasy Tip: Foles doesn't have a pure deep threat now that DeSean Jackson is gone. He has a decent matchup against the St. Louis Rams this week. At $8,100 (16.2% of the cap), he's a weak QB1 on FantasyScore.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy didn't carry the ball on third or fourth down from the San Francisco 49ers' 1-yard line in fourth quarter of the team's Week 4 loss, and head coach Chip Kelly said he didn't trust the offensive line in the situation. "We weren't really getting a ton of push at the point of attack," Kelly said. "I didn't think we were going to be able to pound it in in that situation."
Fantasy Tip: Although it's too early to give up on McCoy, it's not a good sign that the struggling offensive line is costing him goal-line touches. The Eagles have a Week 5 game against a St. Louis defense ranked 30th against the run, and if McCoy can't find some running room in that game, it could be time to hit the panic button.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (toe) is not injured, head coach Chip Kelly said Monday, Sept. 29. "He's not on the treatment list," Kelly said. "He does normal maintenance like everybody else, but he hasn't had any injuries where we've done anything with him." McCoy struggled again in Week 4, and there were rumors his struggles this season have been linked to a turf toe injury suffered during the preseason.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles did not complete any of his 10 passes that traveled at least 20 yards down the field in Week 4, and two of those passes were intercepted. Foles completed 35.3 percent of his passes that went at least 20 yards last season but is completing only 17.2 percent of those throws this season. Head coach Chip Kelly said he does not believe his deep passes are being affected by his banged up left shoulder because the passes are not being underthrown.
Fantasy Tip: Foles has not been able to duplicate his 2013 season so far in 2014 but was able to put up solid numbers in the three games before Week 4. Foles could get more time in the pocket moving forward since Lane Johnson has returned from his suspension. Foles should still be seen as a solid option to start for most owners.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy has struggled to find running room this season but could be helped with the addition of Lane Johnson to the offensive line. McCoy could perform better if he is given the ball in space and allow him to make plays. Owners should continue to start McCoy each week but will need to lower their expectations until he posts better numbers.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy had 10 carries for 17 yards Sunday, Sept. 28, and has 29 carries for 39 yards in the last two weeks. "We got whooped up front," head coach Chip Kelly said. "We're not very good up front right now. We've got a lot of guys banged up. That's not an excuse, it's just the reality."
Fantasy Tip: McCoy has a good matchup in Week 5 against the St. Louis Rams and remains a must-start in all formats.

The hot start by Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin has the team possibly talking about an in-season contract extension for him. It would mark the first time since 2009 the Eagles extended a contract during the season.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is coming off a two-touchdown performance in Week 3. He was likely a popular waiver wire addition to teams this week. However, don't rely too heavily on him moving forward. Remember, he's still a rookie and will have his ups and downs.
