Fantasy Tip: With all the buzz hovering over the quarterback situation, something that hasn't had much of a spotlight on it is that Mathews is in line to see the bulk of the work in the backfield. The team traded DeMarco Murray, and trade rumors surround Darren Sproles. Mathews could wind up a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown how serious the procedure was or how long he's slated to miss. Randle is a WR4 consideration at full strength, but check back for updates.

Philadelphia Eagles OG Isaac Seumalo is expected to compete with OG Allen Barbre during training camp but is not able to participate in offseason workouts at this point because Oregon State uses the quarter system for their classes.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has TE1 potential, but consistency has been an issue throughout his career. The quarterback situation shouldn't impact his value too much, and Ertz's upside is worth taking a chance on if you wait until later in your draft to address the tight end spot.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews flew to Oklahoma in March to work with QB Sam Bradford, and Matthews is OK with Bradford's trade request earlier in the offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Matthews had a decent 85-997-8 season last year, but he was really hamstrung by the absence of a legitimate target opposite of him. Rueben Randle and Chris Givens should help deter double coverages from him. Matthews is a high-end WR2 in fantasy, while Bradford's fragility makes him a low-end QB2.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford worked with the first-team offense during organized team activities Tuesday, May 17, with QB Chase Daniel taking repetitions with the second-team and QB Carson Wentz with the third-team. "I've actually talked to Sam since he's back," head coach Doug Pederson said, "and I told him: My feelings haven't changed. He's my guy. He's the No. 1 guy. I want him to embrace that and not look backward. Look forward."
Fantasy Tip: Bradford is expected to enter the season as the starter, but he may not have a long leash if he struggles, especially since Pederson has a history with Daniel and has high praise for him. Regardless, Wentz is the QB of the future in Philly. Bradford is nothing more than a midrange fantasy backup, but he can put up low-end QB1 numbers in the right matchups.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood looked good running the ball and catching the ball out of the backfield during practice Tuesday, May 17, which impressed head coach Doug Pederson. "He's shown some explosiveness. I really like how well he catches the football out of the backfield. I think that's something that's just a gift that he has. He's a natural pass-catcher. I like that part of him. I like his vision. He's another one of those rookies that's learning the game," Pederson said.
Fantasy Tip: Smallwood probably will not have a big role during his rookie season but could see playing time on third downs as a receiver out of the backfield. Owners should keep an eye on his during training camp to find out his role. He probably can be avoided in most leagues but can be selected in some keeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Parkey missed most of the 2015 season because of a groin injury, so he is slowly working his way back. He is expected to compete with Caleb Sturgis for the kicker job, but neither player will be a strong fantasy option.

Philadelphia Eagles QBs Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel and Carson Wentz all received the same amount of repetitions during practice Tuesday, May 17. Head coach Doug Pederson said Bradford will receive more reps once training camp begins since he will be the starter.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford will enter training camp as the starter, but the team is splitting snaps because they want Wentz to learn the offense. Bradford should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues in 2016. Wentz likely will not have much value in standard leagues but should be an attractive option in keeper leagues.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles has been in contact with head coach Doug Pederson. Pederson fully expects Sproles to return for mandatory camps in June. Sproles has not been participating in organized team activities.
Fantasy Tip: Sproles should eventually be on the football field, especially when games begin to count. He's been a point-per-reception monster throughout his career and should be drafted as a RB3 in PPR leagues.
