Eagles | Ryan Mathews placed on NFI list

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 13:23:24 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Wednesday, July 27, after injuring his ankle while training last week. The team also signed undrafted free-agent WR David Watford (Hampton). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews' injury does not appear to be serious, so he probably will participate in practice in the near future. He is probably the leading candidate to start this season but should lose some snaps to Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood during the season. Mathews can be a No. 2 running back in some fantasy leagues but is a risky option because of his injury history.

Eagles | Sam Bradford likely gone after 2016

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 13:05:46 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is "extremely unlikely" to be with the team after the 2016 season has drawn to a close, according to PhillyVoice writer Jimmy Kempski.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles have the NFL's least amount of available cap space in 2017 and 2018. Bradford' cap number is $22.5 million in 2017 - $13 million of which the Eagles will save if he is released and $17 million if he is traded. No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz is waiting in the wings, further suggesting Philadelphia will move on from Bradford, who should be considered a low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Eagles | Carson Wentz set for heavy preseason load

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 13:01:21 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles rookie QB Carson Wentz is expected to see "a ton" of work in the preseason, according to PhillyVoice writer Jimmy Kempski.

Fantasy Tip: Feel free to put this nugget among the least surprising news bits of the summer. The Eagles would love to see enough from Wentz to feel comfortable with starting him sometime this season and no later than the start of the 2017 campaign. Head coach Doug Pederson has already stated he anticipates Wentz to be inactive on game day early on this season.

Eagles | Connor Barwin could start

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:46:38 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles LB Connor Barwin is slated to start at defensive end opposite DE Vinny Curry, according to Phil Sheridan of ESPN.com. DE Brandon Graham could also start instead of Barwin, though. The defensive linemen are expected to rotate frequently no matter who starts.

Eagles | Eric Rowe to be No. 2 cornerback?

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:38:35 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles CB Eric Rowe is projected to be the No. 2 starting cornerback opposite CB Leodis McKelvin, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Phil Sheridan. Sheridan also said that it would not be a surprise if CB Nolan Carroll wins the No. 2 cornerback job.

Eagles | Nelson Agholor should start

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:30:56 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor is expected to be the No. 2 wider receiver behind WR Jordan Matthews, according to ESPN.com's Phil Sheridan.

Fantasy Tip: Rueben Randle will be Agholor's main competition for the No.2 receiving position, but Agholor has more upside. He has a bad reputation for dropping balls, though, and should not be considered more than a low-end WR4 to high-end WR5.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews not a great fit in offense

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:58:58 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews isn't a great fit in head coach Doug Pederson's offense as he wants to move his backs around to create mismatches for opposing defenses in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews has never been a good receiver, and he has often been a two-down back. Mathews averaged 5.1 yards per carry last season, but he has had durability issues. With Darren Sproles likely to play on third downs and passing situations, Mathews is a high-end RB3 in fantasy. Sproles is a low-end RB3 in PPR leagues.

Eagles | Wendell Smallwood to work on protection

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:00:12 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood needs the most work in pass protection, which will be an area the team needs to trust him in to play him in the regular season. He has shown the ability to be a weapon as a receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Smallwood probably won't have a large role early on, but he could emerge if Ryan Mathews or Darren Sproles, who are aging, go down. He's in the RB5 flyer mix.

Eagles | Nelson Agholor won't be charged

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 09:34:16 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor will not be charged after the Philadelphia District Attorney's office conducted an investigation into an alleged sexual assault case against the receiver. The office said in a statement that it "lacked sufficient evidence" to charge Agholor.

Fantasy Tip: That's great news heading into training camp in a week-plus. Agholor had 23 catches for 283 yards and a touchdown in his rookie season, and he's currently listed as Philly's No. 3 receiver behind Jordan Matthews and Rueben Randle. With Sam Bradford at the helm, at least to start, Agholor probably won't produce enough to be anything more than a late-round flier in standard leagues.

Eagles | Durability concerns for Ryan Mathews

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 20:54:51 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews has played in all 16 games in just one of his six NFL seasons, averaging 12 games per year overall.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews could easily produce RB2 numbers when healthy, but you have to expect him to miss at least a few games. Wendell Smallwood could benefit if Mathews does miss time, making him a sneaky, late-round stash.

Eagles | Carson Wentz likely to be Week 1 inactive

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 14:46:04 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles rookie QB Carson Wentz is expected to be inactive for Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns, according to head coach Doug Pederson. "It's hard right now to look down the road, but if we had to play this week, Carson would be down. He'd be the third quarterback. He'd be deactivated. That's probably the direction we're heading," Pederson told reporters.

Fantasy Tip: This has been the expectation all along, but Peterson appears to be confirming that Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel will start the season atop the depth chart. The Eagles do have a Week 4 bye, so it is possible they could turn to Wentz if they start 0-3, although that appears unlikely. Nevertheless, Bradford's hold on the starting job will likely be tenuous all season long, making him a low-end QB2 in fantasy at best.
