Philadelphia Eagles DT Fletcher Cox rumored in trade talks earlier this offseason, but he hasn't let that bother him. "It would have been a distraction if I was to let that bother me or put me one step behind," Cox said. "My job here is to play football and that's the most important thing to me." Cox's fifth-year option has since been picked up.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz had a solid season in 2014 with 702 receiving yards and three touchdowns and should continue to have a solid role in the passing game this upcoming season. Ertz could be a starting tight end in most leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is participating in competitive drills as he and QB Mark Sanchez share first-team repetitions during organized team activities Tuesday, June 2. Bradford is rehabilitating from a torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered last season.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford is expected to start as long as he's fully healthy, but Sanchez isn't far behind. Whoever starts should be regarded as a QB2 in what should once again be a high-flying offense under head coach Chip Kelly.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso (knee) practiced without a knee brace during OTAs, and while he admitted to being a little rusty, he said he was surprised by how much he has been able to do as he returns from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso (knee) said his knee has been feeling really good during organized team activities. Alonso no longer wears the knee brace that protected the anterior cruciate ligament he tore last year.
Fantasy Tip: When Alonso is at full healthy, which it sounds like he is, or is at least close to being, he's an elite fantasy linebacker. Alonso tallied 159 total tackles in his rookie season in 2013 before tearing his ACL last offseason.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez is acting like he's the starter this offseason, despite the acquisition of QB Sam Bradford from the St. Louis Rams. "That's the only way I know how to play," Sanchez said. "Everybody wants to be the starter and I'm no different." Sanchez added that he's feeling better this offseason than he's ever felt, referring to his surgically repaired shoulder, and said he can only get better.
Fantasy Tip: Head coach Chip Kelly has already said there's an open competition at quarterback, so Sanchez will have his opportunities to prove himself as a starter. He's likely facing somewhat of an uphill battle against Bradford, however. It would be hard to imagine Bradford not starting unless Sanchez really outshines him or Bradford accrues another injury. Neither should be considered a starting fantasy quarterback for now.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles practiced with the first-, second-, and third-team offenses during team and seven-on-seven drills Thursday, May 28. He also has the opportunity to be featured more in the passing game, according to head coach Chip Kelly.
Fantasy Tip: Sproles was horribly inconsistent last season, especially in the second half of the season. He was a weekly high-risk start in traditional formats, and was even a letdown in PPR formats, which were formerly his forte. After all, he only topped five receptions in two games all season. With DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews now also in the mix for touches, Sproles should be viewed as nothing more than a depth running back in traditional formats and a No. 4 RB in PPR leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) doesn't appear close to 100% health, but he could still make it back in time to start Week 1. Head coach Chip Kelly insists Bradford is on schedule. Earlier this month Bradford practiced one week only to sit out practice the next. He said it wasn't a setback and that they just wanted to push his knee to see how it responded. Not practicing suggests that it didn't respond well.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford will likely be a popular QB2 flyer in traditional formats, and he could pay off. Don't forget about Mark Sanchez, though. A second year in the offense could lead to some decent production if he overtakes Bradford.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is on schedule with his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but head coach Chip Kelly said Thursday, May 28, that the starting quarterback job is an open competition.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford should be considered the frontrunner to land the starting gig, but Mark Sanchez will apparently have a shot to earn the job, as well. Whoever ends up under center in Week 1 will have plenty of fantasy upside thanks to Kelly's offense.
