Philadelphia Eagles news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 07 Jul 2015 13:09:19 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor is expected to thrive for Philadelphia in his rookie season, according to an anonymous NFL executive. "He'll come in and produce right away. He has the right mentality and just a great approach to the game," the source said. "He's going to help them. And in that offense, he'll put up numbers."
Fantasy Tip: Agholor should be the No. 2 wide receiver behind Jordan Matthews. Agholor has impressed this offseason and has the talent to produce immediately. The main concern for Agholor is at quarterback, where newly acquired Sam Bradford will likely start if he's healthy enough. Bradford, however, has suffered two torn ACLs the last two seasons. For now, take Agholor as a WR4 with low-end WR3 upside.

Fantasy Tip: Huff is curently slated to be the No. 3 wide receiver behind Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor and Riley Cooper. He could eventually overtake Cooper in playing time, but should be considered a WR5 at best for now.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford may have his best opportunity yet in Philadelphia under head coach Chip Kelly, according to an anonymous NFL executive. "If Bradford had gone anywhere else you wouldn't even be talking about him," the source said. The executive added that there's hope with Kelly and the Eagles after Bradford's struggles with injuries the past couple years. "Chip Kelly is the one guy who can make Bradford a success."
Fantasy Tip: There's still plenty of skepticism and pessimism regarding Bradford's 2015 outlook, and deservedly so. He's suffered two ACL tears in as many seasons. Bradford should be considered a high-risk, medium-reward quarterback for the upcoming fantasy season.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks could still be traded before the regular season begins, according to CSNPhilly.com's Geoff Mosher. Mosher expects LBs DeMeco Ryans, Kiko Alonso, Najee Goode, Brad Jones and Jordan Hicks to make the final 53-man roster. Mosher cited the position's depth as a reason why a trade could still work out.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz is in that logjam of mid-to-low TE1's and has some upside.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is expected to be in the final phase of his rehabilitation from a torn anterior cruciate ligament once training camp begins. Bradford's second ACL tear in as many seasons will require more time to recover and the Eagles may not have a grasp on how ready he is to play before the regular season begins.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford is definitely a risky investment this year. He's coming off back-to-back ACL tears and has spent a lot of time rehabbing, which could negatively affect the chemistry he'll have with his receivers and offensive teammates if he does indeed start. Do not draft Bradford as your starting fantasy quarterback.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor said he worked as an outside receiver during offseason workouts but is learning the other receiver spots as well since the team uses different formations. "I play right side outside, right now, but I'm continuing to learn conceptually the whole deal, because that is how we work here. It's by formation and different people will be in different formations. And that's how we sugar coat what we do...That's just the game of football nowadays. It's about window dressing some of your staple concepts and that's what we'll do," Agholor said.
Fantasy Tip: Agholor probably will see solid playing time this season since the team uses multiple-receiver sets. Agholor could be a late-round option in deeper leagues and has the potential to be more valuable as the season goes on.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Miles Austin has impressed head coach Chip Kelly this offseason. Kelly praised Austin's route-running, separation and his understanding of leverage and coverage. Kelly added that Austin has good range, is intelligent and catches the ball well.
Fantasy Tip: Austin will probably play behind Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor and Riley Cooper, at least to start the season. Not only will Austin be lower on the depth chart, but he has an injury history to rid himself of as well. He's played just four full seasons over his eight-year career, so while he may provide veteran leadership and depth for the Eagles, he won't provide a whole lot for fantasy squads.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles has worked with the wide receivers as much as the running backs during the offseason as part of a plan by head coach Chip Kelly to have him more involved in the offense.
Fantasy Tip: Sproles' days of being a RB1 in PPR formats are long gone, but he could end up being a useful flex option in 2015. However, there are a lot of mouths to feed in Philadelphia, so don't draft Sproles to be an every-week starter.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has spent the offseason traveling around the country to improve as a blocker and a receiver, head coach Chip Kelly said Thursday, June 18, and RB Darren Sproles said Ertz is "about to be a superstar."
Fantasy Tip: Ertz topped 700 yards last season, but his production varied wildly from week to week. He has the physical tools to put up big numbers, and if he has improved enough as a blocker to see more playing time, he could be in for a big year. If you are one of the last owners to select a tight end in your draft, taking a chance on Ertz's upside could pay off.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Tim Tebow has improved his knowledge of the offense and his understanding of where everybody is in formations, according to head coach Chip Kelly. Kelly said Tebow is improving every week and will provide good competition going into August.
