Eagles | LeGarrette Blount not guaranteed roster spot

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 08:44:04 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount has struggled to get to the corner on off-tackle runs and has only nine carries for 17 yards through two preseason games, leading Matt Lombardo of NJ.com to conclude Blount may be among the team's cuts this summer.

Fantasy Tip: In Blount's defense, running between the tackles is his strong suit because he lacks the speed now to get to the edge consistently. Having said that, he just has not looked very good this summer in general. His ability to convert in short yardage and at the goal line may save him, but the Eagles would probably be better off by admitting their mistake and moving on. He's obviously a very risky RB3 in fantasy.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery playing catch-up

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 08:23:28 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery did not practice for about a week and a half during training camp in the preseason or participate in team drills, leading wide receivers coach Mike Groh to conclude Jeffery was "behind" his teammates when it comes to his knowledge of the playbook.

Fantasy Tip: The subject comes up because Jeffrey ran a wrong route on the third-and-12 play in the Eagles' last preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. Philadelphia's priced free-agent acquisition is no stranger to the training room and owners need to keep that in mind when deciding whether or not they should draft him this summer. He's a dicey WR2 with WR1 upside and a brutal schedule to begin the season.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount held in check

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 19:54:53 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed for eight yards on five carries in the preseason game against Buffalo Bills Thursday, Aug. 17. He also caught two passes for 15 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Blount will be the main ball carrier for the Eagles this season and probably will not be used much in the passing game. He probably should be considered a No. 3 running back in standard leagues because of his touchdown potential. He will not have as much value in point-per-reception leagues.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount unimpressive so far

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 19:49:48 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount "hasn't exactly stood out" during training camp so far, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.

Fantasy Tip: McLane notes Blount's skill set is one better suited for games than practices, but it is a bit concerning he isn't distinguishing himself from the Eagles' runners in some way, shape or form. Blount is the heavy favorite for early-down and goal-line work, but owners would be wise to view him as no more than a low-end RB3, especially considering he figures to have next to no role in the passing game.

Eagles | Darren Sproles to be used more in space

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 09:25:56 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles will probably be used less as a runner this season and more as a receiver in 2017 after the team added LeGarrette Blount in the offseason, according to the Philadelphia Daily News' Paul Domowitch. "That's just our thing now. More so than even last year. We're trying to get mismatches. Once you get (the ball to us) in space, that's our strength," Sproles said.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if Sproles won't come close to matching his 94 carries from last season, but he'll likely shoot right past the 52-catch mark he reached in 2016. The Eagles also figure to work in rookie Donnel Pumphrey in order to keep the 34-year-old fresh, but Sproles should be the man in the passing game for what appears to be his final NFL season. Sproles has an excellent chance to blow right past his 12th-round ADP and serve as a back-end RB3.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews cleared

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 08:11:08 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (neck) has been medically cleared Tuesday, Aug. 15, and a decision on his roster status is imminent.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews is likely to be cut, and he could land somewhere of immediate fantasy use. For instance, if he were to land in Dallas, he could be an RB4 target for the first few weeks. It's too early to speculate, and his status should be monitored.

Eagles | Trey Burton's usage to increase

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 07:33:29 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Trey Burton is expected to see more targets out of the slot after the team traded WR Jordan Matthews. Burton and Wentz are close friends, and the two have a rapport on the field. Burton received 36 targets in the last six games last year, and he caught 23 of them.

Fantasy Tip: Burton appears to be a PPR diamond in the rough as a TE2. Zach Ertz has had a myriad of injury issues, and Burton has some upside.

Eagles | Nick Foles won't play Thursday

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 20:16:46 -0700

Eagles | Decision on Ryan Mathews coming soon?

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 11:19:48 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews arrived in Philadelphia Monday, Aug. 14, which could generate a decision on his status with the Eagles in the near future.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles' backfield is crowded even without Mathews. He ran for nearly 700 yards and eight touchdowns last year, but LeGarrette Blount is taking over his role. Mathews is somewhat of a misfit right now. Don't be surprised to see him cut.

Eagles | Wendell Smallwood back at practice

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 06:28:00 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Smallwood was making some noise before he lost a week due to injury. He has some work to do, but he's in the RB5 category.
