  Eagles | Carson Wentz the No. 3 QB?    Sun Jun 26, 08:03 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz might not even dress on game days, and QB Chase Daniel would likely take over as the starter if QB Sam Bradford goes down, according to beat writer Jimmy Kempski.

Footballguys view: Wentz is coming from the FCS level, so the change in the speed of the game will be even more pronounced, and the team is paying Bradford and Daniel a lot of money this year. The Eagles have no incentive to rush Wentz and would be smart to be patient unless both Bradford and Daniel crater.

  Eagles | Kenjon Barner on the bubble    Tue Jun 21, 02:10 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner is on the bubble as RB Byron Marshall projects as a younger version of him.

Footballguys view: Both Barner and Marshall played college football at Oregon. Marshall is a 'tweener slot receiver/speed running back who is electric with the ball in his hands. The rookie is coming back from a serious ankle injury that ended his final season for the Ducks after only a few games. We'll see this battle shake out in training camp. Lots of fantasy owners will be dialed into the RB competition behind Ryan Mathews as the starter has a long injury history.

  Eagles | Rueben Randle in lead for WR3    Tue Jun 14, 08:46 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle is in the early lead for the Eagles' third receiver spot over WR Chris Givens and WR Josh Huff.

Footballguys view: It's not an exciting offense to be the third option in. The Pederson offense should feed one WR and one TE enough to be fantasy relevant. Anything outside of that in the Eagles passing game may not be worth rostering in most standard-sized leagues.

  Eagles | Fletcher Cox agrees to new deal    Mon Jun 13, 06:30 PM

Philadelphia Eagles DT Fletcher Cox agreed to a six-year contract extension Monday, June 13, worth $103 million, according to sources. The deal includes $63 million in guaranteed money, which is the highest guarantee for a non-quarterback in NFL history.

Footballguys view: Cox was entering the last year of his rookie contract, and the Eagles pay him a premium to insure that he stays with the team for the foreseeable future. This guaranteed money is going to make it difficult for the Broncos to sign franchise-tagged Von Miller to a new contract as they have originally offered only $39.8 million in full guarantees. Cox can create interior pressure on opposing QBs and is a key member of the Eagles defense.

  Eagles | Running back committee in Philly?    Sun Jun 12, 03:12 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews has taken most of the first-team repetitions out of the backfield this offseason, but RBs Kenjon Barner and Darren Sproles shared those reps with Mathews, too. Head coach Doug Pederson expects a committee with those three backs and RB Wendell Smallwood.

Footballguys view: This is looking like a mess for fantasy owners. Mathews should be the lead back so long as he stays healthy, but he will be splitting time with any number of backs. Sproles should have a change-of-pace role, and his fantasy value increases in PPR leagues. Barner and Smallwood will compete for whatever is leftover in this backfield. Smallwood is getting a lot of hype in certain fantasy circles, but know that as interesting as he is there's no creativity to his rushing style. Yes, the opportunity could be there for him as the team's starter if Mathews gets hurt but don't expect the world in return. He's not the Eagles version of Charcandrick West.

  Eagles | Chris Givens holding his own    Sun Jun 12, 02:58 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Chris Givens has put in a solid offseason so far and could challenge WRs Josh Huff, Nelson Agholor and Rueben Randle for playing time, according to CSNPhilly's Dave Zangaro. Givens is known for his deep-threat ability, but Zangaro said Givens has also impressed with his underneath routes so far.

Footballguys view: Other than Jordan Matthews, we're not crazy about the Eagles WRs...and it's not like we expect Matthews to burn up the charts. Right now, Matthews has a current ADP of WR25 (5.04) in 12-team PPR leagues. We'll be monitoring Givens vs Huff vs Randle as training camp rolls on later this year.

  Eagles | Nelson Agholor under investigation    Fri Jun 10, 07:33 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor is under investigation by the Philadelphia police for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman Thursday, June 9.

Footballguys view: The police are going to interview Agholor as part of the investigation into this matter. He had a poor rookie season and this isn't going to help his chances of impressing the team. The legal process will run its course, then the league will step in for any added discipline if needed.

  Eagles | Josh Huff drops the ball    Fri Jun 10, 11:26 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Josh Huff was listed as one of the disappointments in organized team activities by PhillyVoice.com due to an exorbitant amount of drops.

Footballguys view: Nobody should be surprised by this. Huff was a Chip Kelly favorite (and he played at Oregon, shocking right?) but he's no lock to make the final roster with the Eagles this year. He'll have to cut down on the drops in training camp and the preseason if he wants to make the team.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz struggles in practice    Thu Jun 9, 03:31 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz struggled during his red zone series in practice Thursday, June 9, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane. Wentz did complete a touchdown pass during the sequence but was also intercepted in his final throw after zeroing in on his target and over clutching. He had a single completion in four pass attempts.

Footballguys view: It's expected as he is in a brand new offense, with new receivers and he's coming from a far simpler scheme. Wentz might win the starting job, but we still think Sam Bradford is the guy to tap although only as a decent QB3.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles happy where he is    Wed Jun 8, 05:00 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (personal) missed time this offseason because of a family matter. Sproles said he is content with his current contract and content in Philadelphia.

Footballguys view: Sproles should be back in a change-of-pace role for the Eagles this year. The offense will look different under new head coach Doug Pederson, but Sproles' role should look somewhat similar.

  Eagles | Philly quarterbacks should split reps    Wed Jun 8, 03:36 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QBs Sam Bradford, Carson Wentz and Chase Daniel will receive equal repetitions heading into training camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson. Pederson said Bradford likely won't take more reps than Wentz and Daniel until late in the preseason when starters usually ramp up their workload.

Footballguys view: What in the world are the Eagles doing? First, they screwed up the QB market by overpaying both Bradford and Daniel. Now, they're going to give them all equal reps? Wow...um, okay Pederson if you say so. It's a new system and a new direction for the Eagles since the franchise struggled under former head coach Chip Kelly. One would assume that a starting QB would get as many first-team reps as possible, but not here....or at least not right now. At least we know that Wentz is the future of the team at the QB position, and he's got the upside to eventually be a top-12 QB in the NFL.

  Eagles | Jordan Hicks cleared    Wed Jun 8, 03:18 PM

Philadelphia Eagles LB Jordan Hicks (quadriceps) has been cleared to practice, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

  Eagles | Josh Huff to play inside    Wed Jun 8, 03:11 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Josh Huff is expected to play on the inside of formations, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: It doesn't matter where Huff plays, really. As a former Oregon player, Huff was a favorite of former head coach Chip Kelly. Now that Peterson has taken over, we don't see any fantasy value for Huff as the Eagles WR4 (at best) on the depth chart.

  Eagles | Rueben Randle making impact    Tue Jun 7, 11:11 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle is getting a new start after a four-year stay with the New York Giants. The team felt Randle was a loafer and indifferent about football, running poor routes and being late for meetings. It led to benchings during his tenure, despite obvious talent. So far, so good in Philadelphia, as head coach Doug Pederson has liked what he has seen. '(Rueben) has really made an impact this spring,' Pederson said. 'He's a guy that's a big, tall, sort of a smooth receiver that understands what we're asking him to do.'

Footballguys view: Randle needed a fresh start after things went off track during his time with the Giants. We're not blown away by his fantasy potential in a Pederson offense, but he might be able to do enough to fill in during bye weeks as a 'what the heck' flex play.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles reports for minicamp    Mon Jun 6, 01:28 PM

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles reported for the start of mandatory minicamp Monday, June 6, after missing all of the organized team activities.

Footballguys view: Sproles said he missed the workouts because of family issues and that the team knew about them. He said reports that he was looking for a new contract or to be traded were false.

  Eagles | Coach sees Jordan Matthews as slot WR    Mon Jun 6, 01:17 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews appears to play better as a slot receiver as opposed to lining up on the outside, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Matthews played as the slot receiver under Chip Kelly, and it seems like that may be his spot now that Pederson has taken over at head coach. He has great hands, and Matthews can cut off his routes with precision on underneath routes. If he does play the slot, that means guys like Nelson Agholor and Rueben Randle will be featured on the outside.

  Eagles | Wendell Smallwood's hands impressing    Sun Jun 5, 09:32 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood has a 'gift' for catching the ball, head coach Doug Pederson said.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners could receive their own 'gift' if Ryan Mathews gets hurt once again and the rookie Smallwood takes over as the lead back for the Eagles. Smallwood led the Big 12 in rushing last year, and he's a determined runner who tries to get the most out of every carry. He's not a creative runner and won't break ankles in the open field, but Smallwood does not dance too much in the backfield and is disciplined when following blocks or looking for cutback lanes. He's a name fantasy owners certainly need to follow.

  Eagles | Sam Bradford 'outstanding' in OTAs    Fri Jun 3, 10:16 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has been 'outstanding' in organized team activities and remains the No. 1 quarterback, according to head coach Doug Pederson. 'Sam's taking this thing and running with it,' Pederson said.

Footballguys view: Good! We're just glad that Bradford realized that he's Sam Bradford and got back to camp with the team to compete for the starting job--something he's never had to do before. Rookie Carson Wentz could sit and develop for a year if (a BIG if) Bradford stays healthy and impresses.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles to arrive next week    Fri Jun 3, 10:14 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles and DT Fletcher Cox are expected to be present at next week's mandatory camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Mandatory minicamp is when all the veterans who have been working out on their own show up. The Eagles RB situation is an interesting one to monitor for fantasy owners. Sproles will play in his usual role, but if Ryan Mathews doesn't stay healthy (a real possibility) then perhaps rookie Wendell Smallwood gets a larger role.

  Eagles | Sam Bradford to work out with teammates    Thu Jun 2, 01:58 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford said he plans to workout with several of the skill players during the first week in July in order to work on their timing leading up to training camp. WRs Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor and Chris Givens are among the players that will be part of the workouts.

Footballguys view: It's a good step, though Mark Sanchez used to do that with his Jets receivers and it never seemed to help. That said, Bradford is still a shaky QB3 until he 1) has the job for sure and 2) proves he can produce consistently.

  Eagles | Coach impressed with Sam Bradford    Thu Jun 2, 01:08 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has been impressing the coaches during offseason workouts, according to quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo. DeFilippo said Bradford is one of the most naturally gifted passers he has seen in a while.

Footballguys view: It seems like DeFilippo is impressed with everyone! It's a party! On a more serious note, it is good to hear Bradford looks sharp given that he was absent from the team just prior to and after the draft when he was trying to force a trade.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz ahead of the curve    Thu Jun 2, 12:48 PM

Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo said QB Carson Wentz has exceeded his expectations in terms of playing speed and vision on the field. 'I think there were some things that I thought he would need a little more work with it than he does. He's further along from a seeing-the-field standpoint than I thought he would be. He's further along from a playing speed standpoint than I thought he would be coming from the FCS level. Those are things that I guess you can say I'm pleasantly surprised with, but not shocked,' DeFilippo said.

Footballguys view: Wentz is a sharp guy, and very hardworking, so this is no shock to many of us. Of course, we don't know how high (or low) DeFilippo set the bar to be impressed. We don't know if Wentz will see more than a handful of snaps this season, but there's a real chance he could beat out Sam Bradford this year. We'd avoid starting him in fantasy in that case, as while his upside is high, Wentz is also very raw.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz off to fast start    Tue May 31, 05:48 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has displayed an NFL-caliber arm and the ability to make every throw on the route-tree during practice, and beat writer Matt Lombardo believes Wentz seems to be ahead of QB Sam Bradford when it comes to mastering head coach Doug Pederson's offense.

Footballguys view: Nobody should really be surprised by this. Wentz has incredible work ethic and is known as a football junkie. The rookie may win the starting job in Philadelphia in Week 1. To quote Dennis Green, Bradford is who we thought he was....but we won't let him off the hook. Neither can the Eagles as they're on the hook for $22 million in guaranteed money over the next two years for the painfully average veteran QB.

  Eagles | Kenjon Barner working with starters    Mon May 30, 05:51 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner has been working with the starters during OTAs with RB Ryan Mathews (groin) slowed by injury and RB Darren Sproles not participating, and beat writer Eliot Shorr-Parks believes Barner's edge over Mathews in speed and agility could earn him the starting job permanently.

Footballguys view: This RB situation is one for fantasy owners to keep an eye on. Mathews seems to always be banged up, and behind him is Barner. The speedy back from Oregon has natural instincts for running the ball. However, we're interested about the back behind him in rookie Wendell Smallwood. The fifth-round pick from West Virginia led the Big 12 in rushing last year. When decisive as a runner, he can swiftly get to the second level of the defense. He's not overly creative, and thus may have trouble creating his own space.

  Eagles | Philly teammates on board with Sam Bradford    Fri May 27, 02:23 PM

Philadelphia Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins said the Eagles aren't harboring any ill feelings toward QB Sam Bradford after he skipped the start of the offseason program and demanded a trade. 'But I think right now, barring anything crazy or anything changing over the next few months, I think everybody is very comfortable with Sam and looking forward to him falling into that role,' Jenkins said.

Footballguys view: What else are they going to say? Publicly they can stand by him, but privately you have to wonder if teammates are mad about a guy who has never really had to compete in the NFL complaining about now having to do so. The Eagles could sit Carson Wentz for his entire rookie season, but we think he's the better QB and could step into the starting lineup if (when?) Bradford struggles.

  Eagles | Rueben Randle out a couple weeks    Wed May 25, 03:48 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle (gallbladder) is fine, according to a source, but he is extremely sore and will be out two to three weeks while he recovers from having his gallbladder removed, according to a source.

Footballguys view: That sets his chances to have an impact on the team back quite a bit, as he needs to get more familiar with the offense. He's mired behind Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews, so we're not too excited for his prospects.

  Eagles | No QB order set in Philly    Wed May 25, 02:33 PM

Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich said that the order set with QB Sam Bradford as the No. 1, QB Chase Daniel as the backup and QB Carson Wentz as the third guy is 'probably not the right impression.' 'But the other thing that -- as coaches -- that you've got to establish is a culture of competition. This is one of the most competitive industries in the world and so, to say that there's not competition, that's just the furthest thing from the truth.'

Footballguys view: Reich needs to be cautious with what he says so Bradford doesn't get upset. Of course no order has been set. Bradford SHOULD be the starter for Week 1 as the team has indicated they'd like Wentz to sit and devlop. However, if Wentz shows that he's better in camp then we could see their future franchise QB take over early this year...perhaps even Week 1.

  Eagles | Ryan Mathews sitting out    Tue May 24, 10:47 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (illness) is out of practice Tuesday, May 24, due to illness.

Footballguys view: Mathews should be back soon for the Eagles. Injuries are a concern with the talented veteran, but missing practice on Tuesday is not a big deal. If healthy, Mathews can perform like a low-end RB2. His current ADP is RB26 (6.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | Rueben Randle has surgery    Tue May 24, 10:47 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle (gallbladder) is out of practice Tuesday, May 24, due to a recent gallbladder surgery.

Footballguys view: That's not going to help his chances to make the 53-man roster. He never played up to his potential and was wildly inconsistent during his time with the Giants. Randle needs to get healthy and prove that he belongs on the Eagles, but even if he does make the team we're not expecting him to make any sort of fantasy impact.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz said he isn't going to run his routes any differently for QB Sam Bradford than he would for QB Carson Wentz.

  Eagles | Jordan Matthews has rapport with Bradford    Thu May 19, 12:58 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews flew to Oklahoma in March to work with QB Sam Bradford, and Matthews is OK with Bradford's trade request earlier in the offseason. 'If I'm cool with it, then everybody should be cool with it,' Matthews said. 'Look, if I want to be here, and I'm happy with it, and we can go out there and just compete, that's all I want to focus on. That's all that matters.'

Footballguys view: Matthews led the team in targets (128), yards (997) and touchdowns (8) with Bradford under center, so we're sure he's happy to have him back. We think he could be a solid WR2 this year.

  Eagles | Sam Bradford works with first-team    Wed May 18, 12:47 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford worked with the first-team offense during organized team activities Tuesday, May 17, with QB Chase Daniel taking repetitions with the second-team and QB Carson Wentz with the third-team. 'I've actually talked to Sam since he's back,' head coach Doug Pederson said, 'and I told him: My feelings haven't changed. He's my guy. He's the No. 1 guy. I want him to embrace that and not look backward. Look forward.'

Footballguys view: Bradford has to prove to his teammates and the fans that he's willing to work for the job, especially after his hissy fit post-draft. Wentz is raw, but the future, so Bradford is also auditioning for his next potential starting gig.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles has been in contact with head coach Doug Pederson. Pederson fully expects Sproles to return for mandatory camps in June. Sproles has not been participating in organized team activities.

Footballguys view: There was some discussion about Sproles getting traded during the draft, but that talk has died down. The Eagles have the oft-injured Ryan Mathews as their lead back, and Sproles can continue to make plays as a change-of-pace back and return man.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz does not expect tension    Fri May 13, 04:39 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz said he expects to have a good relationship with QB Sam Bradford and does not expect any tension in the quarterback room.

Hopefully, we'll learn together, grow together and really push each other.' Wentz said he does not care what his role is as long as the team is winning.

Footballguys view: Wentz has the upside to be a top-12 QB in the NFL. He'll deal with this Bradford "friction" the right way. While Bradford once demanded a trade (after Wentz was selected), it seems like the veteran has finally realized that he's Sam Bradford and shouldn't be demanding anything.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz terms    Thu May 12, 02:20 PM

Updating an earlier report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz's four-year deal is worth $26 million with a $17.6 million signing bonus.

Footballguys view: It's in stark contrast to the money fellow Eagles signal caller Sam Bradford got when he was selected first overall in 2010 which was the largest ever by a rookie. With the money much more reasonable (Bradford's was a six-year, $78 million deal, which has $50 million of guarantee), the team can be cautious and take their time with Wentz. However, we know Bradford's injury history and his overall attitude after the draft, so it's not inconceivable that Wentz could take over this season. That makes this a shaky situation for fantasy and we'd tend to stay away from it.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz signs rookie pact    Thu May 12, 01:16 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is signing his rookie contract Thursday, May 12, according to a source.

  Eagles | Nelson Agholor needs to step up    Thu May 5, 01:50 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor was one of the least productive wideouts in the league in 2016. No receiver with as many routes run averaged fewer yards, and only eight receivers with as many targets had a worse defense-adjusted yards above replacement ranking.

Footballguys view: Reports have surfaced that indicate Agholor was banged up last year and played through a high-ankle sprain. That would certainly explain his lack of production. Agholor is a better WR than he showed last year, so we'll see if he can get back on track in 2016.
