  Redskins | Wendell Smallwood to be busy?    Fri Oct 18, 09:28 PM

Washington Redskins WR Wendell Smallwood has the ability to handle RB Chris Thompson's (toe) duties on passing downs against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7, according to offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell.

Footballguys view: Smallwood gets the work that starter Adrian Peterson does not. We'll see if he can produce like a 'what the heck' flex on Sunday.

  Eagles | Wendell Smallwood waived    Sat Aug 31, 03:14 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood was waived Saturday, Aug. 31.

Footballguys view: The Eagles backfield was cramped this offseason and that's why they let go of Smallwood and Josh Adams on Saturday. A fifth-round pick out of West Virginia in the 2016 NFL draft, Smallwood might latch on with a new team in need of a pass-catching back.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood rushed seven times for 23 yards and lost a fumble in the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Smallwood is likely out in Philadelphia but he should be on the street free agent running back list and get calls as injuries pile up this season.

  Eagles | Miles Sanders expects shared workload    Tue Jul 9, 10:28 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders expects plenty of competition at his position in training camp and for the ball to 'spread out a lot' between Jordan Howard, Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood and himself, according to comments he made during an interview Tuesday, July 9, on the NFL Network.'It's definitely going to be competitive. That's what I like about rooms like this. It was like this at Penn State. It was a very talented running back room. But I'm just used to that stuff - competing and making each other better. Nobody's really going to be the star running back, I think. I think the ball's going to be spread out a lot, and that's what I kind of like, too,' Sanders said.

Footballguys view: The rookie is on the right track here. Sanders should be the satellite back behind starter (and classic power back) Jordan Howard. The rest of the players like Clement and Smallwood in the backfield could get into the reserve mix as well. Sanders has missed time this offseason recovering from a hamstring injury. We'll see if he can impress in training camp.

  Eagles | Wendell Smallwood continues to progress    Tue Jul 2, 02:19 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood had a strong offseason program and assistant head coach and running backs coach Duce Staley is excited about his role in the offense. 'I'm excited about Wendell. Like we talked about earlier, we have a great room, a great group, and they're all competitive, and they know they're competing against each other, which is awesome,' Staley said. 'Wendell's picked his game up during OTAs. We all know he can catch the ball out of the backfield. He's just getting better within the offense, learning our offense even more.'

Footballguys view: We're not giving up on Smallwood in dynasty formats. Deep dynasty that is. Smallwood is buried on the team's depth chart at the moment and is no lock to make the 53-man roster. The Eagles acquired veteran Jordan Howard via trade and rookie Miles Sanders in the draft this offseason, so that pushes a guy like Smallwood down the depth chart.

  Eagles | Four RBs for one spot in Philly?    Wed May 29, 02:48 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RBs Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams, Boston Scott and Donnel Pumphrey are likely competing for the team's fourth and final backfield spot, in the opinion of NJ.com's Mike Kaye. The three likely locks are RBs Jordan Howard, Miles Sanders and Corey Clement.

Footballguys view: The Eagles have an interesting mix of the four backs likely competing for one spot. Adams is your classic banger who got some work for them last year down the stretch. Smallwood has the experience edge and is an all-purpose back who can be used as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. We'll see how this competition shakes out in training camp.

  Eagles | Wendell Smallwood on the bubble?    Thu May 9, 09:47 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood 'might have an uphill battle' to make the 53-man roster in 2019, in the opinion of Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News.

Footballguys view: Smallwood is a useful back, but the Eagles have made additions at running back that might leave only one spot for a utility back to use between him, Corey Clement and Donnel Pumphrey. He could be scooped up or traded for a late-round pick if the Eagles can't keep him.

  Eagles | Wendell Smallwood likely to make roster    Tue Aug 14, 08:01 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood has yet to miss a practice, and perhaps no player has helped himself more during training camp than he has, according to NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks, who speculates Smallwood's chances of making the roster appear to be 'very good right now.'

Footballguys view: Donnel Pumphrey was having a good summer before another injury torpedoed his chances to make the roster. UDFA Josh Adams has been doing more than Matt Jones if the Eagles choose to make a big back their #4. Smallwood has multiple applications between offense and special teams, which might make him the answer. Corey Clement is a little banged up, so the #4 back could be active to begin the season.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.

  Eagles | Wendell Smallwood takes part in practice    Thu Oct 26, 04:10 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

Footballguys view: LeGarrette Blount has done well enough to be getting a full load of carries and we expect RB2 numbers this week with the potential for more if San Francisco continues to struggle. That leaves as no more than a flex player if he plays, and that could come by picking up extra carries when Blount needs a blow late. Smallwood is likely to produce no more than RB4 numbers.

  Eagles | Wendell Smallwood fully participates    Wed Oct 25, 07:17 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 25.

Footballguys view: Fully participating is a good sign for Smallwood. He's part of the Eagles RBBC, but it's hammer LeGarrette Blount who serves as the lead back. Smallwood is a RB3/flex play in PPR leagues.
