Eagles | Carson Wentz to report early

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 11:42:47 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz will report to training camp Monday, July 24, when rookies and selected veterans are scheduled to report.

Fantasy Tip: Wentz started strong in his rookie season but had problems during the second half of the season. He finished with 3,782 yards, 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. The Eagles added a few new receivers for Wentz to work with during the offseason, which should help his passing numbers. Owners can consider Wentz as a No. 2 quarterback in leagues.

Eagles | Doug Pederson not giving up play-calling

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 09:17:50 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was a full-time play-caller for the first time last season and does not plan on ceding those duties to offensive coordinator Frank Reich at any point in the near future. "After going through a year of calling a full season, it's hard to give that up personally, selfishly. … You're part of the game, the whole fabric of the game. It's just hard to give it up. I'm still kind of in my mind processing all of it, how it would work if I did that (give it up). But as of right now, I'm not," Pederson said.

Eagles | Marcus Smith cut would save cap space

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 07:36:31 -0700

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles LB Marcus Smith, who is likely to be cut, is due a $594,000 roster bonus on the third day of training camp. If he's released before that kicks in, the team would save $1,483,515.

Eagles | Carson Wentz asked to do too much in 2016

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 12:36:21 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz attempted 607 passes last year, the second-highest total for a rookie in NFL history. Head coach Doug Pederson hopes to "take a little bit off" Wentz's plate in 2017 and believes the addition of RB LeGarrette Blount to the running game will help in that respect.

Fantasy Tip: The running game fell off about the same time right tackle Lane Johnson began serving his suspension, which contributed largely to the Eagles' heavy reliance on Wentz. There is a good chance the second-year signal-caller will improve on last year's numbers (3782 yards passing, 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions) simply because he has a better supporting cast around him now, led by Alshon Jeffery. Wentz should be a solid QB2 in fantasy in 2017.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount lived in red zone in 2016

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 17:57:35 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount was far and away the busiest player in the league inside the red zone last year, registering league highs in carries and touchdowns inside the 20, 10 and 5. Sixteen of his 68 red zone carries, 15 of his 42 attempts inside the 10 and 12 of his 24 rushes inside the 5 resulted in touchdowns. Mike Gillislee is expected to assume the power role Blount had with the New England Patriots last season.

Fantasy Tip: Blount obviously obviously cannot count on the same kind of volume in Philadelphia that he could in New England, but it is notable for present and future owners of Gillislee. While a repeat of Blount's franchise-record 18 rushing touchdowns for Gillislee is highly unlikely, he is a very good bet to reach double figures for the first time in his career and makes for a high-upside RB3 in most leagues.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews will be evaluated

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 14:35:27 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (neck) will be evaluated when he reports to training camp in regards to his neck fusion. If he passes the evaluation, he could be released.

Fantasy Tip: LeGarrette Blount, Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood seem to have taken over the Eagles' backfield, leaving the injured Mathews on the outside looking in. He can be avoided for fantasy purposes until further notice.

Eagles | Carson Wentz working with receivers

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 11:12:53 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is working with several Eagles this week, including WRs Alshon Jeffery and Jordan Matthews and TE Zach Ertz.

Fantasy Tip: It's always nice to see a young quarterback working out with his pass-catchers during the offseason, especially when it's not required. Wentz has solid upside in his sophomore year and has the receiving corps to break out. Draft him as a QB1 is ill advised, but he makes for a quality QB2.

Eagles | Greg Ward Jr. putting in the work

Sat, 08 Jul 2017 20:31:58 -0700

Mon, 03 Jul 2017 13:11:00 -0700

Eagles | Cutting Ryan Mathews would hurt cap

Mon, 03 Jul 2017 13:03:10 -0700

Waiving Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (back) with a failed physical designation would result in a salary cap hit of $1,150,000, according to Jimmy Kempski of the Philly Voice. Kempski added that if there were no salary camp consequences, the Eagles may have already released Mathews.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like good news for Mathews, who could eventually be released this offseason. Cutting Mathews wouldn't hurt the Eagles, aside from financially, as LeGarrette Blount, Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood make for a nice three-headed backfield. Considering Mathews' injury history and the Eagles' depth at running back, Mathews isn't a viable fantasy option right now.
