Philadelphia Eagles news, rumors and injuries
Thu, 18 Dec 2014 10:23:33 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Matthews will continue to be a nice sleeper option for FantasyScore owners as long as Mark Sanchez continues to remain the starting quarterback. He will cost $6,600 this week.

Fantasy Tip: Parkey has kicked through the injury to this point, and is likely good to go again. He will cost $3,300 in FantasyScore this week.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk appears to have become the team's goal-line back of late, and two of the three snaps he played in Week 15 led to short rushing touchdowns. On another snap inside the five-yard line, RB Darren Sproles took the ball for a TD. The Eagles have struggled in the red zone this year, and they think Polk's size and power gives him an advantage at the goal line. "Some of the short-yardage stuff, Polk's obviously a little bit more powerful back, so they've been giving him some of the runs in short-yardage in a couple games, especially last game," RB LeSean McCoy said. McCoy has 10 carries inside the five-yard line this year and has three touchdowns.
Fantasy Tip: Polk ($3,300) is a very deep flex play, at best, at FantasyScore, and the matchup against the Washington Redskins isn't a good one for either Polk or LeSean McCoy ($7,100) in Week 16.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy opened practice on the sidelines Wednesday, Dec. 17, while RB Chris Polk opened with first-team reps. After practice McCoy did not seem too concerned. "We rotate all the time," McCoy said. "(Running backs coach Duce Staley) pulled me out. (RB Darren Sproles) wasn't in either." Shady played a season-low 34 of 55 offensive snaps in Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys, his fewest in two seasons under head coach Chip Kelly.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if this means anything, but FantasyScore owners should avoid McCoy at $7,100 (or 14.2% of the cap) until there is more clarity in the Philadelphia backfield.

Fantasy Tip: It's too early to tell if this means anything, and McCoy did not seem terribly concerned. FantasyScore owners will want to follow the situation this week to see if Polk has worked his way into a bigger role. If so, he could be a steal in Week 16 at just $3,300 (or 6.6% of the cap) in FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Parkey has been playing through the injury and should be fine this week. He will cost $3,300 in FantasyScore this week.
Wed, 17 Dec 2014 12:44:42 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Matthews should be good to go this week, and will cost $6,600 in FantasyScore. Matthews will look to rebound after not catching a pass in Week 15. He is still a decent starting option as long as Mark Sanchez is the starting quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Celek will cost $3,000 in FantasyScore this week, and is not a terrible sleeper option for your roster, especially if you are looking to load up at other positions.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone) has been ruled out of the team's Week 16 game. LB Emmanuel Acho (groin), DE Brandon Bair (knee), DT Bennie Logan (pectoral), S Chris Maragos (hamstring) and RB Chris Polk (ankle) all fully practiced Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: This quenches any hopes of picking up Foles off waivers in time for a fantasy championship.
Mon, 15 Dec 2014 15:45:49 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Mark Sanchez likely will continue to start while Foles is out of the lineup. Sanchez will be playing a Washington Redskins defense that has allowed the most points to opposing quarterbacks this season. Sanchez may be an attractive option on FantasyScore depending on his price.
