Fri, 24 Oct 2014 21:36:42 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles C Jason Kelce (hernia) is listed as questionable for the Week 8 game against the Arizona Cardinals, but he is unlikely to play. He had sports hernia after his injury Sept. 21, and said then he was hoping to return by the Week 10 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk (hamstring) could see a bigger role in the offense in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals if RB Darren Sproles (knee) is unable to play. Sproles is questionable for the game, while Polk is listed as probable. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Friday, Oct. 24, that the team would use Polk in the same ways they've used Sproles this season.
Fantasy Tip: If Sproles is inactive, Polk could be worth using as a flex option in FantasyScore at just $3,000 (or 6.0 percent of the cap).

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners never like to see their player risking injury on special teams, especially when there is nothing to gain. Regardless, Maclin is a must-start against a very suspect Arizona pass defense. FantasyScore owners will love him at $6,700 (or 13.4 percent of the cap).

Philadelphia Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks (calf) might be able to return for the Week 8 game against the Arizona Cardinals. If not, LBs Emmanuel Acho and Casey Matthews would replace him, a platoon that has gotten more effective over the past few games.

Fantasy Tip: If Sproles ($5,400) winds up playing, there's a good chance he'll have his touches limited. On the flip side, LeSean McCoy ($7,200) could be worth the investment at FantasyScore against the Cardinals. He'll receive the lion's share of the workload, and the Eagles will likely try to get him going coming off their bye.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Brad Smith (groin) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals. C Jason Kelce (hernia) and LB Mychal Kendricks (calf) are questionable, while RB Chris Polk (hamstring), LB DeMeco Ryans (groin) and CB Jaylen Watkins (wrist) are probable. Smith did not practice Friday, Oct. 24, while the others all practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: It is good news that Sproles was able to get some work in for the second day in a row. Sproles has a chance to play, and would cost $5,400 in FantasyScore this week.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Marcus Smith has shuffled between inside and outside linebacker, and his future with the team remains unclear as he has made several mistakes and not been sharp when he has played. Smith has only played 44 snaps and seen defensive duty 10 percent of the time.
Wed, 22 Oct 2014 11:30:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It appears that Sproles has a chance to play in Week 8, but his status is still uncertain at this point. Sproles costs $5,400 on FantasyScore and could be a good play in point-per-reception leagues.
