Philadelphia Eagles news, rumors and injuries

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) doesn't appear close to 100% health, but he could still make it back in time to start Week 1. Head coach Chip Kelly insists Bradford is on schedule. Earlier this month Bradford practiced one week only to sit out practice the next. He said it wasn't a setback and that they just wanted to push his knee to see how it responded. Not practicing suggests that it didn't respond well.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford will likely be a popular QB2 flyer in traditional formats, and he could pay off. Don't forget about Mark Sanchez, though. A second year in the offense could lead to some decent production if he overtakes Bradford.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is on schedule with his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but head coach Chip Kelly said Thursday, May 28, that the starting quarterback job is an open competition.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford should be considered the frontrunner to land the starting gig, but Mark Sanchez will apparently have a shot to earn the job, as well. Whoever ends up under center in Week 1 will have plenty of fantasy upside thanks to Kelly's offense.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Tim Tebow will be used by head coach Chip Kelly as a quarterback and nothing else. "You guys will see him today. Watch him throw. I think he's improved," Kelly said. "He's spent a lot of time in the last few years in terms of working on his game."

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is throwing on the side in individual drills Thursday, May 28, according to Eagles head coach Chip Kelly. Kelly said Bradford will begin 7-on-7 drills next week.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford is a midrange QB2 and could present a nice value if he can stay healthy.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) has not been participating in team drills during organized team activities this week, according to sources. Bradford has been limited throughout the offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford looks to be the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job at this point but likely will have to compete with Mark Sanchez during training camp. Owners should consider the winner of the competition as a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2015.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor has the route-running ability, athleticism, work ethic, versatility, speed and technique to be a big weapon for the Eagles in his rookie season, according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.
Fantasy Tip: Jordan Matthews is Philadelphia's No. 1 receiver with Jeremy Maclin out of town, but Agholor will compete with Riley Cooper and Josh Huff for the No. 2 and No. 3 spots. It will be hard for the Eagles to keep Agholor off the field if he can stay healthy. He should be regarded as a WR4 with WR3 potential.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor possesses the speed, agility, route-running skills and big-play ability to make him an immediate contributor as a rookie, in the opinion of CBSSports.com's Rob Rang. Agholor played in a pro-style offense at the University of Southern California and can line up all over the field. Rang also cites Philadelphia's strong running game as being a positive for Agholor.
Fantasy Tip: Agholor is arguably the most intriguing rookie fantasy receiver to target. He could be a steal as an under-the-radar draft selection in the middle rounds of standard formats.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Marcus Smith has gained 15 pounds and put on lots of muscle since last season, according to LB Connor Barwin. "He's one of the stronger guys on our defense now," Barwin said. "He took the offseason and did what he needed to do, which was get bigger, stronger. Now we're just excited to see what happens when we put the pads on."

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez could be the team's best bet for a starting quarterback. Sanchez went 4-4 after taking over as the starter last season, and finished the campaign with a career best 64.1 completion percentage. Sanchez has played all but one game during his six-year career, showing health that's lacked by the Eagles' other options.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez will compete primarily with Sam Bradford for the starting job, but the fact that Sanchez was re-signed to a two-year $9 million contract indicates he's strongly in the hunt for the position. Even if Bradford wins the job, his extensive injury history certainly could leave a door open for Sanchez to emerge at some point during the 2015 season.
