Sun, 04 Oct 2015 08:36:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Murray ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) probably will receive the start but likely will share time with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles. Murray has struggled finding running room this season and may not be the best option for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) would be returning from a one-game absence but likely would not receive his regular workload if he is active. Owners could consider using in their lineup but should consider other options if they are available.

Fantasy Tip: This makes Philly's backfield even more tricky in Week 4. Ryan Mathews ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) excelled in Murray's absence last week. Murray ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) could be limited in his touches in a game that could feature plenty of running due to inclement weather. Mathews is probably the safer play on FantasyScore, and Sproles ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) remains a flex option with intrigue. You may want to wait another week to use Murray.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford and the Eagles will play the Washington Redskins at the regularly scheduled time of 1:00 p.m. EST Sunday, Oct. 4. The NFL was considering moving the game because of potential inclement weather.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will be able to keep their Eagles and Redskins players in their starting lineups, but the weather could affect the passing game. The quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight end could be risky options because of the weather. Matt Jones ($5,000, 10.0% of cap), Alfred Morris ($5,000, 10.0% of cap), DeMarco Murray ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) and Ryan Mathews ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) could receive a boost in value if the teams run the ball more often.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso (knee), DE Taylor Hart (shoulder) and DE Cedric Thornton (hand) have been ruled out for the Week 4 game against the Washington Redskins. LB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring), FS Chris Maragos (quadriceps) and OT Jason Peters (quadriceps) are listed as questionable, while TE Trey Burton (shoulder), WR Riley Cooper (knee) and WR Josh Huff (hamstring) are listed as probable. Alonso was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 2, while the other players fully participated in practice.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to check the inactive list to see if Murray ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) will be able to play against the Redskins. Murray would be a risky option for owners because of his injury as well as he struggles early in the season. Owners may want to use other options even if Murray is active.

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) will be a game-time decision in Week 4 against the Washington Redskins. Murray missed Week 3 and has only 11 yards on 21 carries in two weeks this year.
Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Murray ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) said he put in a full practice Thursday. That points to him being able to play this weekend. However, he's big risk on FantasyScore coming off the injury and in a game that could face harsh weather conditions.

Fantasy Tip: Philly's offense has yet to really click through three games. The matchup against the Washington Redskins is very intriguing. However, with hurricane conditions possible, the passing game may be non-existent. Avoiding both Cooper ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Huff ($2,000) as deep sleepers is the right thing to do.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso (knee) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 1. DE Taylor Hart (shoulder), S Chris Maragos (quadriceps), OT Jason Peters (quadriceps) and DE Cedric Thornton (hand) were limited, while TE Trey Burton (shoulder) and LB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) has been sluggish to open the season and faces a beastly Washington Redskins defense this week. We understand shying away from him on FantasyScore, but we're not counting him out either.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015 10:11:46 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bradford ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) and Cousins ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) are very middling options on FantasyScore anyway. You might want to steer clear this weekend.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was quizzed on why the team's offense hasn't produced many big plays, and Bradford said the ball is going where it is supposed to go. "I think a lot of it is the way we're trying to attack defenses right now," said Bradford, whose figure of 5.8 yards per pass attempt ranks 37th among 41 passers charted by the NFL. "The ball goes where it's supposed to go. That's what we've been calling and that's what's been given to us." Bradford is 0-for-5 on balls thrown at least 20 yards this season, which is worst in the league, according to ESPN. "Listen to the play call. Take what's there. You can't try to force anything," Bradford said. "When you try to force it to someone, and you make an extra effort to get someone the football, sometimes you run yourself into problems, because you skip over progressions trying to get someone the ball. I think you've just got to stay disciplined in your reads. The ball goes where it's supposed to go."
Fantasy Tip: Bradford ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) faces a tough Washington Redskins defense this week. Despite a solid Week 1, he has struggled to move the ball. Bradford isn't the best play on FantasyScore this week.
