Philadelphia Eagles news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Celek has far less upside than third-year TE Zach Ertz entering the 2015 season. Celek is considered as the superior blocker, but Ertz talent in the passing game can't be ignored forever.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is expected to receive more play on the outside in 2015 than he did in his rookie season, but it's very difficult to justify removing him from the slot position where he's been so effective. Matthews enters the season with plenty of upside, making him a trendy pick as a WR2.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Marcus Smith hasn't done enough to prove to coaches he can be the top substitute at outside linebacker in 2015. Head coach Chip Kelly complimented Smith's play three days into training camp, but he also noted LB Brad Jones as a potential alternative.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is taking the first-team repetitions at quarterback during training camp ahead of QB Mark Sanchez. Sanchez is Bradford's primary competition after returning from his second anterior cruciate ligament injury of his career. Bradford has made a strong early impression on head coach Chip Kelly.
Fantasy Tip: There is obviously a lot of risk in selecting Bradford for your fantasy football team this fall as a backup, but in this high-powered offense, he has plenty of upside as a strong QB2 option if he can stay on the field.

Philadelphia Eagles LB DeMeco Ryans (Achilles') is not quite 100% in his return from a torn Achilles'. "I still have a little ways to go," Ryans said. "Still need to gain a little bit of strength (in the foot), a little bit of explosiveness. Once I do that, I'll be ready."

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has taken first-team reps in camp and figures to be a high-end QB2 option with some upside in this offense.

Fantasy Tip: It would make sense for head coach Chip Kelly and the Eagles to bring Murray along slowly and give him fewer reps, considering how much he was used with the Dallas Cowboys last season. Murray will be splitting time with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles this year, but he's still the Eagles' starting running back and should be drafted as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has a nice Week 1 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons for his Eagles debut, but owners will want to follow his preseason performance, and make sure he makes it through healthy.

Fantasy Tip: If Bradford is healthy enough to participate in a majority of training camp, he should open the season as the starter. His injury history makes him a risk, but he has QB1 upside and needs to be owned as a backup.
