  Eagles | Jordan Howard not conceding much    Tue Aug 20, 04:32 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard has 'ran the ball quite well throughout camp,' according to NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt, who concedes that rookie Miles Sanders will 'almost certainly' overtake Howard at some point. However, Rosenblatt expects Howard will stay play a role and be one of the team's top options when it comes to short-yardage situations and in the red zone.

Footballguys view: Howard can be the banger for the team with Sanders working more as a 'lightning' type of back. If you play in a PPR league, then Sanders has more value because of his receiving ability. Howard has a current ADP of RB37 (8.05) and Sanders is at RB28 (6.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has made 'at least one splash play' during each practice, according to to Tim McManus of ESPN.com, and McManus believes Jackson is going to 'do some damage this season.'

Footballguys view: It's just like old times. Jackson returns to the Eagles this year to be the deep threat for Carson Wentz. That role and his skill set make Jackson a flex-worthy player for your fantasy team. Jackson has a current ADP of WR48 (10.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | PHI backup QB situation somewhat unsettled    Sun Aug 18, 11:44 AM

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said no decision has been made on whether QB Josh McCown or QB Nate Sudfeld (wrist) would be the team's second quarterback once Sudfeld's broken left wrist has fully healed.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld is a tall pocket passer and we've always appreciated his skill set in deep dynasty formats. McCown is the seasoned veteran who gives the Eagles quality depth if starter Carson Wentz is banged up again.

  Eagles | Braxton Miller let go    Sat Aug 17, 05:12 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Braxton Miller was waived Saturday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: Miller, a third-round pick of the Texans in the 2016 NFL draft, has to now find a new team...again. He's always been raw as a receiver as he was a former quarterback at Ohio State, but Miller is physical and athletic with the ball in his hands. The team needed to make room for newly signed QB Josh McCown. We'll see if Miller can latch on with another team.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders rushed five times for 31 yards in a 24-10 preseason win over the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 15.

  Eagles | DeSean Jackson more than a deep threat?    Tue Aug 13, 02:44 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is 'a complete player' who can 'do anything that he wants,' according to offensive coordinator Mike Groh. Jackson appears to be rejuvenated by his return to Philadelphia and is thrilled with head coach Doug Pederson's offense, telling NBC Sports Philadelphia's Reuben Frank that 'we got some dope stuff in this year' and the 'kind of stuff (Pederson) has up his sleeve for this offense ... is unbelievable.'

Footballguys view: Jackson can be more than a deep threat....but he's mainly going to be the guy that stretches the field for the Eagles offense. His big-play ability make him an interesting flex play most every week. Jackson has a current ADP of WR47 (10.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz's production likely to take a hit    Tue Aug 13, 02:27 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has been 'one of - if not the - best players in training camp,' and 'that's especially true in the red zone where he seems to be unstoppable,' according to NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt. Nevertheless, his targets are expected to drop in an offense with Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, Nelson Agholor, Dallas Goedert and Darren Sproles, per Rosenblatt.

Footballguys view: It's going to be difficult to duplicate the 116 receptions Ertz had in 2018. We like projecting him more around 85 catches or so, and Ertz is still a top-3 fantasy tight end regardless of his numbers taking a dip.

  Eagles | Dallas Goedert misses practice    Sat Aug 10, 01:30 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (calf) did not participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 10, and is considered week-to-week because of a calf injury. The injury is not considered serious, and he should be ready for Week 1.

Footballguys view: We'll believe Goedert will be ready for Week 1 when he is out there. With full practice participation it will be easier to trust him going into the season, but this takes a little luster off of his sleeper status. He did look very good in the preseason opener before his injury and will be a major mismatch when healthy.

  Eagles | Miles Sanders making a strong impression    Mon Aug 5, 04:40 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders has received 'many' of reps with the first-team and 'easily been the most impressive runner on the team' through 10 training camp practices, according to Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com. Rosenblatt added that while he expects Sanders to become the team's No. 1 running back sooner than later, he needs to show improvement as a pass-catcher, pass protector and with his ball security.

Footballguys view: Sanders missed a lot of time this offseason with a hamstring injury, but the talent has always been obvious. He runs with good burst and knows how to create his own space with quickness and speed. Sanders will be the 'lightning' to the 'thunder' provided by No. 1 RB Jordan Howard. Let's see how the team splits things up later in the preseason.

  Eagles | Jordan Howard to play significant role    Mon Aug 5, 04:29 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard has been the top option in short-yardage and goal-line situations during training camp and has impressed the team with his ability to catch the ball and hold up in pass protection, according to comments made by offensive coordinator Mike Groh.'(Howard has) done a really nice job both in catching the ball and in the protection. He's been all over his protection. Done a really good job with that, been sound and firm in protection allowing our quarterbacks to step up in the pocket and make the throws down the field,' Groh said of Howard.

Footballguys view: Howard is the lead back for the Eagles...for now. He's a power back who can grind down an opponent but the team has better options as pass-catching backs like rookie Miles Sanders. We'll see how this backfield splits reps in the preseason. Howard has a current ADP of RB37 (8.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.
