Fantasy Tip: Ertz has come out of the gates strong in the early going, and should be ready to go in Week 3. With a FantasyScore price of $6,500 (13% of cap), Ertz is worth a look.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson was cut by the Philadelphia Eagles in the offseason because of his size, according to head coach Chip Kelly. "Yeah, just trying to build the overall team in terms of what we're looking for offensively and how we wanted to get bigger at the wideout spot and that's what we did," Kelly said. Kelly also said Jackson's character off the field did not weigh in the decision.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson (shoulder) is expected to play this week. His $6,000 (12% of your cap) price tag is pretty sizeable on FantasyScore this week. Monitor his workload in practice this week to gauge your comfort level of playing him in Week 3.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz leads the NFL in yards per reception (23.3) through two weeks. He also is tied with Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones for the most receptions of 20-plus yards (six) and has as many 20-plus-yard catches as 20 other teams.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles had seven receptions for a career-high 152 yards in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Sept. 15. He also had four carries for 26 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: Sproles was unstoppable in the pass game, and he has posted a pair of rushing touchdown through the first two games. Philadelphia fans love him, Indianapolis fans are not fond of him, and the same is true for fantasy owners of LeSean McCoy. Sproles' effectiveness is cutting into the value of McCoy to this point. Sproles is a fabulous RB2 or flex play in points-per-reception (PPR) formats, and a decent low-end RB2 in standard leagues.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy had a decent stat line for fantasy owners, but it was Darren Sproles who stole the show and is eating into the fantasy appeal of Shady a little bit. Still, McCoy is an unquestionable RB1 in all formats, as he is still getting ample touches.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 21 of his 37 pass attempts for 331 yards, one touchdowns and one interception in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Sept. 15. He also ran four times for 22 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Foles went over 300 yards for the second straight week, and he has posted a total of three TD strikes. He remains a Top 10 fantasy option at his position, despite the lack of TD passes through the first two games.
