  Eagles | Jay Ajayi remains sidelined    Mon Aug 20, 02:13 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 20. Ajayi also missed practice Sunday, Aug. 19.

Footballguys view: Ajayi is going to be the lead back for the Eagles in 2018..but the team does use a RBBC approach with Doug Pederson coaching. That nerfs the fantasy value for Ajayi. We'll see if he can get back on the field with this undisclosed injury (whatever it is), and Fantasy GMs like Ajayi around RB20 (4.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz will not play Thursday    Mon Aug 20, 01:58 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) said he will not play in the third preseason game Thursday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: We are not going to see Wentz this preseason, that was already known. We'll see if he can play Week 1 of the regular season, and he remains noncommittal at the moment. Nick Foles (shoulder) did return to practice Sunday, but most expect him to miss the rest of the preseason as a precaution. The Eagles should go with third-year quarterback Nate Sudfeld as their starter this week.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz looking fresh    Mon Aug 20, 12:09 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) took part in 11-on-11 drills for the at practice Sunday, Aug. 19, for the first time in more than three weeks. 'His arm is live,' Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said of Wentz. 'He hasn't had all the reps, obviously, that (QB) Nick (Foles) has had, that (QB) Nate (Sudfeld) has had, so his arm is live. He's fresh, and that's all the things that we wanted him to be at this stage.' Pederson didn't say whether Wentz would see any playing time in the Eagles' final two preseason games but left the possibility open that he could start the Sept. 6 season opener against the Atlanta Falcons.

Footballguys view: Wentz looks good and is trending towards playing in Week 1 of the regular season. When asked about his availability for the beginning of the regular season, Wentz told reporters 'It's going to be close.' Stay tuned.

  Eagles | Dallas Goedert ready to fill void    Sun Aug 19, 11:05 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert should 'slide right into' the role that Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton filled for the offense last year, according to Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com.

Footballguys view: Burton collected 23 passes for 248 yards and five touchdowns last year with the Eagles. Goedert has a great size/speed combination with the ability to create mismatches every time he's on the field. In 2017, Burton was the no.26 fantasy tight end (standard scoring leagues), and the rookie Goedert might even be able to produce more in 2018. We love his dynasty value and Goedert could be a late-round tight end to take a chance on in your drafts.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz to take part in team drills    Sat Aug 18, 12:19 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) will participate in team drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 19.

Footballguys view: Nick Foles is going to miss the rest of the preseason with a shoulder injury, but the Eagles have been planning on Wentz taking this step around this time for awhile now. Wentz has been progressing well and still appears to be on track to start the season in Week 1.

  Eagles | Nick Foles will be fine    Fri Aug 17, 04:55 PM

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (shoulder) is not expected to miss much time after tests on his injured shoulder showed a minor injury, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This is good news for the Eagles, who hopefully won't have to feel pressured to play Carson Wentz if they feel he would benefit from sitting Week 1 now.

  Eagles | Bryce Treggs injury update    Fri Aug 17, 12:33 PM

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Bryce Treggs (hamstring) is expected to be out a few weeks after suffering a hamstring strain in a preseason game Thursday, Aug. 16, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Treggs was probably on the wrong side of the roster bubble anyway. He could end up back on their practice squad.

  Eagles | More on Nick Foles    Fri Aug 17, 09:15 AM

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (shoulder) was optimistic in his post-game interview about his shoulder. 'It just sort of got jarred in a funny way as I was following through, but you know it feels good and we'll check it out (Friday) more thoroughly.'

  Eagles | Shelton Gibson nets 90 yards    Thu Aug 16, 11:32 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Shelton Gibson caught five passes for 90 yards and a touchdown in 37-20 preseason loss to the New England Patriots Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Gibson is having a much better camp and preseason than last year, and he might be moving ahead of fellow 2017 draft pick Mack Hollins on the depth chart.

  Eagles | Nate Sudfeld goes off in preseason    Thu Aug 16, 11:23 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nate Sudfeld completed 22 of his 39 passes for 312 yards, three touchdowns and an interception against the New England Patriots in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld may start and play most of the time with the ones next week in the "dress rehearsal" game and there's an outside shot he'll start Week 1 against Atlanta if neither of Nick Foles and Carson Wentz are ready.

  Eagles | Nick Foles exits with shoulder injury    Thu Aug 16, 08:54 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (shoulder) had to exit the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 16, against the New England Patriots due to a shoulder strain, according to the club.

Footballguys view: The Eagles were going to have a tough decision in Week 1 whether to start Foles or Carson Wentz coming back from a multi-ligament knee tear. This injury might have made the decision for them. If neither Foles nor Wentz are ready, Nate Sudfeld would get the Thursday night start against the Falcons in Week 1.

  Eagles | Corey Clement to sit out    Thu Aug 16, 05:10 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Corey Clement will not play in the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Clement is the thing which will push Darren Sproles out, if he can be back on the field sometime soon. He'll be ready for Week 1, and build off the high snap count he had as an undrafted rookie free agent. That said, he's significantly behind Jay Ajayi but is a good handcuff for the other back at an ADP of 46th back off the board.

  Eagles | Two Eagles will not play Thursday    Thu Aug 16, 03:03 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles and OT Jason Peters will not play in the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: There's no need to risk either one. We'd like to see if Peters is 100% back from the knee injury he suffered last season. Sproles will be 35 by Week 1 and it's a smart thing to rest him as much as possible this preseason. We aren't expecting anything from him, and won't be rostering him this season.

  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.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz trending to out for Week 1?    Tue Aug 14, 11:13 AM

Updating an ongoing story, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) said 'it will be close' as to whether he'll be ready for Week 1. 'I obviously would love to be out there,' Wentz said. 'That's been my goal all offseason ever since the injury. It's going to be close. I'm still eyeing that date. At the end of the day, it's not just my decision. There's coaches and doctors that really have the final say. I really like where I'm at and time will tell here.'

Footballguys view: If it's truly close, Wentz will sit Week 1. The Eagles have one of the best (and highest paid) backups in the league in Nick Foles, and Wentz's long-term outlook is much more important than getting him back on the field as soon as possible. Wentz's fantasy viability early in the season is up in the air, and he should probably be outside of the top 3-4 quarterbacks drafted.

  Eagles | Alshon Jeffery may not be ready    Mon Aug 13, 02:11 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) has continued to progress in his recovery from rotator cuff surgery, but there is a chance he won't be healthy enough to play in Week 1. NFLNetwork's Ian Rapoport added that Jeffery could remain on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

  Eagles | Philly adds Christian Hackenberg    Sun Aug 12, 04:12 PM

Free-agent QB Christian Hackenberg (Raiders) signed an undisclosed deal with the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Aug. 12.

Footballguys view: Other than punchlines, this probably means nothing. Nick Foles is having back spasms and the team is taking it slow with Carson Wentz, so the team might want another camp body.

  Eagles | Dallas Goedert likely back soon    Sun Aug 12, 02:02 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (elbow) told reporters Sunday, Aug. 12, he is recovering from a 'bump and a bruise' and expects to be back in a day or two.

Footballguys view: Goedert's injury is probably nothing to worry about going forward, but we're monitoring Nelson Agholor, who hasn't been at practice in a week. Goedert looks like he'll be an instant red zone specialist and potentially have fantasy value as a rookie.

  Eagles | Corey Clement held out of action Sunday    Sun Aug 12, 10:54 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Corey Clement (leg) was spotted with his right leg in a sleeve Sunday, Aug. 12, and was held out of practice.

Footballguys view: if Clement has injury issues, it could increase Jay Ajayi's upside. We'll be keeping tabs on this, but there are no outward signs that it is serious.

  Eagles | Dallas Goedert leaves practice    Sat Aug 11, 03:42 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (undisclosed) left practice early Saturday, Aug. 11, because of an apparent injury.

Footballguys view: We hope this isn't anything too serious. Goedert snared four receptions, 66 yards and a touchdown during the team's game Thursday, Aug. 9, against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The rookie second-round pick from South Dakota State has the ability to be a weapon for the Eagles. We love his stock in dynasty leagues.

  Eagles | Nick Foles returns to practice    Sat Aug 11, 11:54 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (neck, back) resumed practicing Saturday, Aug. 11.

  Eagles | Dallas Goedert finds end zone in debut    Sat Aug 11, 02:55 AM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert tallied four receptions, 66 yards and a touchdown during the team's game Thursday, Aug. 9, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: The Eagles nabbed a potentially special talent at the tight end position when they selected Goedert out of South Dakota State in the second round of the 2018 NFL draft. Goedert has fine athleticism and the body control to make difficult catches seem routine. The rookie can create mismatches as he's too fast for many linebackers and he's too big for most safeties to cover. He'll serve as the TE2 for the Eagles behind Zach Ertz in 2018.

  Eagles | Donnel Pumphrey turning heads in camp    Tue Aug 7, 09:15 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Donnel Pumphrey 'looks like a different guy' and is the 'most improved guy in camp,' according to Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia's Reuben Frank.

Footballguys view: Pumphrey is ahead of Wendell Smallwood and has a decent chance of making the roster as a long-term replacement for Darren Sproles, who the team might not have expected to be back this year after tearing an ACL last year.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz unlikely for preseason    Tue Aug 7, 05:32 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) is expected to be held out for the duration of the preseason as he continues to recover from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and subsequent surgery.

Footballguys view: The fact that Wentz could actually be ready for Week 1 of the regular season is remarkable. The Eagles have been working to get him back for that game for some time and it seems like he's on track. Nobody should have been expecting him to play at all in the preseason. Wentz believes he'll be fine if he is unable to play in those exhibition games.

  Eagles | Nick Foles dealing with spasms    Tue Aug 7, 12:34 PM

Updating an earlier report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (back, neck) is reportedly dealing with spasms in his trapezius and neck area. He has missed three straight practices and is not expected to participate in the team's preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Foles is important as the potential Week 1 starter for the Eagles, so they will be as careful with him as they are being with Carson Wentz as he returns from a serious knee injury and surgery. Expect to see a lot of Nate Sudfeld over the next month.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (upper body) is out of practice Tuesday, Aug. 7, due to upper-body soreness. He's unlikely to play in the preseason opener this week.

Footballguys view: Expect to see a ton of Nate Sudfeld, who will likely be the backup to Carson Wentz next year. Joe Callahan should also get a lot of snaps.

  Eagles | Nick Foles sits again    Mon Aug 6, 12:20 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (undisclosed) was sidelined for the second straight practice Monday, Aug. 6, because of upper body soreness.

Footballguys view: The Eagles are working Carson Wentz back from the knee injury that ended his 2017 season. Foles took over last year and we all know how that ended as the veteran quarterback was named Super Bowl MVP. Wentz is on a good track to return in Week 1 of the regular season but the team is taking it easy on Foles as you never know if they're going to need his experience once again as their starter.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz remains sidelined    Mon Aug 6, 12:15 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Monday, Aug. 6, and has missed three straight practices.

Footballguys view: Three straight practices means this is something more than a precaution. Keep an eye on this situation as training camp and the preseason continue. The Eagles added a great young tight end in the second round of the 2018 NFL draft when they selected Dallas Goedert. He would be in line for quite a fantasy-relevant role if Ertz had to miss time in the regular season. Keep his name on your waiver wire speed dial just in case.
