  Eagles | Rasheed Bailey doesn't make team    Fri Sep 4, 12:15 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Rasheed Bailey was informed he will be cut Friday, Sept. 4.

Footballguys view: Bailey was a superstar small school player, but it looks like he'll have to take the practice squad route to make it in the NFL.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz to see limited snaps?    Thu Sep 3, 09:21 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (groin) could be limited to passing downs and two-tight end sets when he returns from injury.

Footballguys view: We had high hopes for Ertz and still hope he can fulfill our projection as a low-end TE2. We can't imagine they won't throw to him as opposed to Brent Celek.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (groin) said he is feeling better each day but may be a game-time decision for Week 1.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso (knee) said he is making progress in his recovery from knee problems and expects to play in the final preseason game.

Footballguys view: Getting Alonso on the field is going to boost the Eagles defense. Alonso has been dealing with tendonitis in his surgically repaired left knee.

  Eagles | Kevin Monangai waived    Tue Sep 1, 03:32 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Kevin Monangai was waived Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: No more than a depth player, the true value sits with DeMarco Murray (RB1) and Ryan Mathews (RB4). Of course, both have injury concerns, but even if they were hurt, you weren't going to see Monangai.

  Eagles | Riley Cooper doesn't have a catch    Tue Sep 1, 11:02 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper doesn't have a catch this preseason.

Footballguys view: Cooper is a guy who is going to have some trouble finding a role considering the weapons around him and that has shown in preseason. At best he might produce WR9 numbers, but unless Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews implodes or Darren Sproles suddenly can't catch, Cooper is going to see very little in the way of opportunity. At the end of the day there are better uses for the end of your bench.

  Eagles | Sam Bradford aces preseason test    Sun Aug 30, 09:56 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford completed all 10 of his passes for 121 yards and three touchdowns during the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 29. 'I thought he was really poised out there, had a really good command of what we were doing, really located the football. I thought he played really well,' head coach Chip Kelly noted.

Footballguys view: Bradford looked as good as he has since his rookie year in St. Louis. His ability to stay healthy for the entire season is in question, but his ability to effectively pilot this offense is looking very good. He's worth a leadoff QB streaming pick after 10-12 quarterbacks are off of the board.

  Eagles | Kiko Alonso expected to play    Sat Aug 29, 11:23 AM

  Eagles | Sam Bradford will play    Fri Aug 28, 09:19 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, but head coach Chip Kelly wouldn't say how much Bradford would play.

Footballguys view: They'll want to keep 'Glass Joe' healthy, so the answer might be 'two plays' depending on how the offensive line performs. We don't totally trust his ability to stay healthy as well as have been generally underwhelmed by what we see when he stays on the field, so right now we have him as a QB2.

  Eagles | Miles Austin not standing out    Fri Aug 28, 08:24 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Miles Austin hasn't stood out, or received many chances to stand out, thus in training camp. His role is undetermined as he could start on the outside or he could be inactive.

Footballguys view: This isn't a shock as it has been some time since he played in a manner approaching good. He hasn't cracked 1,000 yards since 2010, the closest being his 943 yards in 2012. Now he's buried behind much more talented players. Right now he's nearly worthless in fantasy and going undrafted right now. If injuries strike he could be a factor but not now and not anytime soon.

  Eagles | Nelson Agholor the second-best receiver?    Thu Aug 27, 10:13 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor should be the 'second-most productive receiver on the team when the season ends,' according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Footballguys view: Considering the receivers lining up around he and Jordan Matthews, this statement could be viewed in the same vein as 'sky is blue' and 'water is wet.' Right now we see Agholor as a rock solid WR3 with some WR2 upside. His current ADP seems to be spot on as he goes in the early sixth round, about the 25th or 26 receiver off the board.

  Eagles | DeMarco Murray not sure of workload    Thu Aug 27, 10:02 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray said he doesn't know what the running back rotation will be this year, but he said he doesn't expect to 'alternate series' with RB Ryan Mathews.

Footballguys view: Coming off a 393 carry season, we can confidently say he will not repeat that level of carries. That said, he should get the bulk of the work and be worthy of a late first round pick as a solid RB1. Considering his injury history and the fallout for a lot of backs with 300 plus carries, it might be wise to secure a solid backup. Ryan Mathews is considered as an RB4 in general but might be worth a round earlier pick than the seventh rounder he currently sits at in current fantasy drafts.

  Eagles | Jordan Matthews staying in slot    Thu Aug 27, 08:45 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews is likely to remain in the slot this season, but he may play in some two-receiver sets on the outside. 'I've been doing some of both (in the slot and outside,]' Matthews said. 'But I'm going to do whatever the coaches want me to do, man. Shoot, if they want to put me at running back, I'll go and do it.'

Footballguys view: It's where his best fit is, really, as he's not really a No. 1 receiver. If Nelson Agholor can ramp up his production in his rookie season, the Eagles will find Matthews open a lot. Staying in the slot allows him to have the best chance to be productive and is why we have him as a solid WR2 in our rankings.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz could play Week 1    Wed Aug 26, 08:07 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (groin) has not been ruled out for Week 1 at this point, according to offense coordinator Pat Shurmur.

Footballguys view: Ertz hasn't practiced with the team since August 14th. His status for Week 1 is up in the air, so get ready to see Brent Celek start at tight end for the Eagles.

  Eagles | Kiko Alonso expected to go    Tue Aug 25, 11:38 AM

Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso (concussion) is expected to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Alonso has plenty of talent, but injuries have slowed him down as a pro. He's out of the concussion protocol, and we should see him in the all-important Week 3 preseason game.

  Eagles | Sam Bradford impresses in first game    Mon Aug 24, 05:56 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford played solidly in his first action with the Eagles. WR Jordan Matthews said Bradford was great in the pocket. Bradford himself said it felt good to get back on the field and to take his first hit.

Footballguys view: Bradford has the accuracy to be good in the Chip Kelly offense. Fantasy owners who add Bradford as a QB2 are only worried about his lack of durability. Bradford's current ADP reflects those concerns. He's coming off the board at QB15 (10.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | Nelson Agholor solid again    Sat Aug 22, 11:09 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor caught four passes for 49 yards in the first half of a preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens Saturday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Agholor has been rough around the edges at times, but his talent is undeniable. He should be the leading outside receiver in the Eagles offense, but his range of outcomes is still very wide. He's worth a pick as one of your first bench wide receivers in the seventh or later.

  Eagles | Riley Cooper hurts thumb    Sat Aug 22, 11:02 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper (thumb) exited a preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens Saturday, Aug. 22, with a thumb injury. X-rays were negative, but he did not return.

Footballguys view: Cooper is an obstruction to Nelson Agholor and Josh Huff having consistent value this year. It doesn't sound like he'll miss any time, but if he misses the third preseason game and youngsters impress, it could continue to momentum away from Cooper playing significant snaps this year.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Marcus Smith (hamstring) was carted off during practice Thursday, Aug. 20, after suffering a hamstring injury.

  Eagles | Tim Tebow should make team    Thu Aug 20, 07:43 PM

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Tim Tebow continues to impress head coach Chip Kelly, and Tebow is expected to earn a spot on the active roster if he doesn't make any glaring errors over the rest of the preseason, according to a team source. Kelly has been impressed with Tebow's running ability and his improvement throwing the football. Tebow can become a valuable weapon with the new two-point rule and in short-yardage situations. QB Matt Barkley is available for trade. Tebow was 6-for-12 for 69 yards in the team's first preseason game last weekend, and he had four carries for 15 yards and a touchdown.

Footballguys view: Chip Kelly is definitely running the show here and it's a good bet he has something in mind for Tebow. It likely spells doom for Matt Barkley who has been less than impressive. There's no point in fostering Tebow though as it will take multiple injuries to get him under center for more than gimmick plays. Yes, Sam Bradford is an injury risk but it's unlikey Tebow would hop over Mark Sanchez, who is more polished and played well in Kelly's system last season.

  Eagles | No problems for Sam Bradford    Thu Aug 20, 12:09 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) has not suffered any setbacks during training camp, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

  Eagles | DeMarco Murray not sure if he will play    Wed Aug 19, 03:53 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray does not know if he will play in the second preseason game but believes he can play if he is in uniform. Murray fully participated in practice Wednesday, Aug. 19, and has no doubt that he will be ready for the start of the season.

Footballguys view: Murray mysteriously missed the first preseason game for the Eagles. He's been going through practice, but reports indicate that he's not at full speed. The Eagles say he's not injured, and the team is just giving him some rest after the 436 carry season he had last year for the Cowboys.

  Eagles | Concern over DeMarco Murray's workload    Tue Aug 18, 06:05 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray's 2014 workload is cause for concern, according to head coach Chip Kelly Tuesday, Aug. 18. 'Our plan all along was to get another running back with him. I wanted to have two running backs, and that's why we got Ryan [Mathews]. I don't think you can have a guy carry it 370 to 400 times per season and be successful. We're going to run it a lot -- we always do -- but we'll have more than one guy doing it,' Kelly said.

Footballguys view: Don't be surprised if Murray has 100 fewer carries than he did last year. In 2014, Murray rushed the ball a whopping 393 times. This year, we think he gets the rock about 270 times with Mathews serving as a valuable backup.

  Eagles | Kiko Alonso returning    Tue Aug 18, 11:52 AM

Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso (concussion) will be eased into practice Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: It sounds like he made it through the protocol without any reason to worry about this being an especially severe concussion. As long as there is no recurrence of symptoms in the next few days, there's no reason to worry about this with respect to Alonso's IDP stock. We'll keep him on the list of players to monitor in season for a repeat concussion.

  Eagles | Nelson Agholor impressive in preseason     Sun Aug 16, 09:23 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor had three catches for 57 yards and a touchdown in a preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to take note here. Agholor is likely to be the Eagles WR1 this year, and that has plenty of fantasy value. Second-year WR Jordan Matthews is best suited to play more of a WR2 role. Right now, Matthews (WR16) is going above Agholor (WR31). Don't be surprised if Agholor ends up being the more valuable fantasy asset.

  Eagles | Sam Bradford not wearing brace    Fri Aug 14, 05:02 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) has not been wearing a bulky brace on his surgically repaired knee during practice.

Footballguys view: There are lots of good signs around Bradford's recovery, but we'll still be holding our breath until he takes some hits in preseason games. Remember, last year's torn ACL came in the preseason. Bradford seems to really want to play this weekend, but Chip Kelly is holding him out until Week 2.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso (concussion) is going through the concussion protocol but has not passed all of the tests at this point.

  Eagles | Coach limiting DeMarco Murray    Fri Aug 14, 03:15 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray has been limited during training camp because head coach Chip Kelly has decided to take things slow with Murray. Kelly indicated the high number of touches Murray received last season was a factor in limiting him.

Footballguys view: While this is good because it eliminates the possibility of a current injury, it underscores that Kelly has some of the same concerns fantasy drafters do about Murray in the year after a massive workload.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz has surgery    Fri Aug 14, 02:48 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (groin) underwent surgery on his injured groin Friday, Aug. 14, and he will miss the entire preseason.

Footballguys view: It's hard to imagine Ertz playing week 1, and it's impossible to imagine trusting him in your lineup if he's active. Jordan Matthews looks like a fine Week 1 DFS play and Ertz drops down to a very low TE1 in drafts, if not a TE2 on this news.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz out for preseason    Fri Aug 14, 12:11 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (abdomen) will not play in the preseason due to a core muscle injury, but head coach Chip Kelly said Ertz should be ready for Week 1.

Footballguys view: If Ertz has/had surgery on his injury, it is probably a 4-8 week timeline that would endanger Week 1 despite Chip's proclamation. Ertz was trying to prove that he could be a good enough blocker to get more snaps this year, but this injury may keep the same frustrating split between Ertz and Brent Celek in place for 2015. His status as TE1 pick is shaky now.

  Eagles | Sam Bradford out for preseason opener    Fri Aug 14, 12:10 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will not play in the preseason opener Sunday, Aug. 16, while QB Mark Sanchez will start. Bradford is expected to play in the second preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens. 'That's my decision,' Kelly said. 'He really wants to play. I don't think he's really happy with my decision. I just felt he's been out here for two weeks, done a really nice job. He'll get his first work against the Ravens when we get a chance to train with them for a couple days before we play, and he'll play in the Ravens game.'

Footballguys view: No worry here as Bradford has been practicing and looking good. We're excited to see him play in an Eagles uniform next week and he could be one of the most profitable QB picks in drafts this year... if he stays healthy.

  Eagles | Riley Cooper still eager to play    Thu Aug 13, 04:55 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper knows he needs to compete to stay a starter. 'I'm still extremely hungry. I'm not complacent. I'm not content, by any means,' Cooper said. 'I think that's how you have to approach the game every single year. They're trying to bring someone in to take your job. I know that. I'm going to do everything I can for that not to happen.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should be looking elsewhere. Cooper's yards-per-catch average dropped by over seven yards from 2013 to 2014. The Eagles keep adding WR talent, and Cooper just keeps falling down in the pecking order for targets.
