Philadelphia Eagles news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 22 Dec 2014 10:08:34 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Mark Sanchez should start tine final regular season game with Foles out. Sanchez has thrown four touchdowns and four interceptions in the last three games, and the team has lost all three games. Sanchez has a favorable matchup against the New York Giants this week, but owners may want a better option.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez will have a decent matchup, but he has not played nearly well enough to give much consideration on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez's longest completion of the night went for 26 yards, and if he did miss some big plays, he still managed to finish with 374 yards and two scores. He should remain a solid value pick at the quarterback position at FantasyScore when the Eagles face the Giants in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper had just a single touchdown catch coming into the game, and at best, he is the No. 3 option in the team's passing attack.

Fantasy Tip: Where has that been all season? Ertz is a matchup play at the position.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone) and LB Trent Cole (hand) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and have been ruled out for Week 16. LB Emmanuel Acho (groin), DT Beau Allen (shoulder), DE Brandon Bair (knee), DT Bennie Logan (pectoral), FS Chris Maragos (hamstring) and RB Chris Polk (ankle) fully participated in practice and are listed as probable.

Fantasy Tip: Parkey should have several chances to put points this week and should be a solid option on FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews was shut out in the team's Week 15 game but has a favorable matchup against the Washington Redskins this week. Matthews costs $6,600 on FantasyScore and could be an attractive option for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Celek has not been a big factor in the team's passing game over the past month but is facing a Washington Redskins defense that has allowed the most fantasy points to tight ends over the last four games. Celek only costs $3,000 on FantasyScore and could be a cheap option for owners looking to save some money at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews will continue to be a nice sleeper option for FantasyScore owners as long as Mark Sanchez continues to remain the starting quarterback. He will cost $6,600 this week.

Fantasy Tip: Parkey has kicked through the injury to this point, and is likely good to go again. He will cost $3,300 in FantasyScore this week.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk appears to have become the team's goal-line back of late, and two of the three snaps he played in Week 15 led to short rushing touchdowns. On another snap inside the five-yard line, RB Darren Sproles took the ball for a TD. The Eagles have struggled in the red zone this year, and they think Polk's size and power gives him an advantage at the goal line. "Some of the short-yardage stuff, Polk's obviously a little bit more powerful back, so they've been giving him some of the runs in short-yardage in a couple games, especially last game," RB LeSean McCoy said. McCoy has 10 carries inside the five-yard line this year and has three touchdowns.
Fantasy Tip: Polk ($3,300) is a very deep flex play, at best, at FantasyScore, and the matchup against the Washington Redskins isn't a good one for either Polk or LeSean McCoy ($7,100) in Week 16.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Emmanuel Acho (groin), DT Beau Allen (shoulder), DE Brandon Bair (knee), DT Bennie Logan (pectoral), S Chris Maragos (hamstring) and RB Chris Polk (ankle) all fully practiced Thursday, Dec. 18.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy opened practice on the sidelines Wednesday, Dec. 17, while RB Chris Polk opened with first-team reps. After practice McCoy did not seem too concerned. "We rotate all the time," McCoy said. "(Running backs coach Duce Staley) pulled me out. (RB Darren Sproles) wasn't in either." Shady played a season-low 34 of 55 offensive snaps in Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys, his fewest in two seasons under head coach Chip Kelly.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if this means anything, but FantasyScore owners should avoid McCoy at $7,100 (or 14.2% of the cap) until there is more clarity in the Philadelphia backfield.
