  Eagles | Nick Foles sharp    Fri Aug 22, 12:07 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 19 of 29 passes for 179 yards with one touchdown and one interception during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21. He led the offense to three scoring drives in the first half.

Footballguys view: It will be interesting to see the progression of Foles in year two of the Chip Kelly offense. Foles is getting drafted at QB8 (7.11) in 12-team PPR leagues. The design of this offense is to run the rock--a lot. They won't go pass-happy unless they have to. This design could limit Foles' fantasy value compared to other quarterbacks. He's an efficient passer in a helluva offense, but there could be some frustration when choosing to start Foles from week-to-week.

  Eagles | LeSean McCoy update    Thu Aug 21, 11:34 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) said he expects to be ready for the regular season after spraining his right thumb during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: This is probably not a big deal. Monitor the reports out of Philadelphia, but we're expecting McCoy to be a top-3 fantasy RB again this year.

  Eagles | Jeremy Maclin walks off    Thu Aug 21, 08:44 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) walked off the field under his own power after falling and clutching his right knee during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: Maclin is a shaky fantasy addition. It's not just the knee injury that knocked him out of action last year. It's also the fact that Maclin has not gotten over the injury mentally. You can tell that he's still thinking about the knee--and that mentality could hold him back in 2014. His current ADP is WR27 (6.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | Brandon Boykin update    Thu Aug 21, 06:43 PM

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles CB Brandon Boykin (hamstring) will not play Thursday, Aug. 21, due to a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: The Eagles want Boykin to cover the slot again and a slot corner with a bum hamstring isn't all that much help. They'll save him for the season.

  Eagles | More on LeSean McCoy    Wed Aug 20, 10:02 AM

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (toe) has a painful condition similar to turf toe that flared up last week. He had an MRI and an X-ray on the toe, and he even had conversations about shutting it down if the pain became unbearable.

Footballguys view: This is definitely something to consider when breaking ties in the tightly packed top four running back tier, but until we see more clear outward indications that this will affect McCoy's production and effectiveness all season, it's really hard to move down one of the best backs in the game in his prime in a system that is almost designed exactly to take advantage of his elite abilities.

  Eagles | Acquire Kenjon Barner in trade    Tue Aug 19, 10:07 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles acquired RB Kenjon Barner from the Carolina Panthers Tuesday, Aug. 19, for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2015.

Footballguys view: Basically, the Panthers were going to cut Barner and potentially got a late pick for him instead. The Eagles have a banged up Chris Polk as one of the backs behind LeSean McCoy and Barner played for Chip Kelly at Oregon, so this is a very low cost move to acquire a player Kelly knows well.

  Eagles | Chris Polk misses practice    Tue Aug 19, 12:53 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Aug. 19. It does not sound like Polk will be available for the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: If Polk is not very durable this year, that will open up a spot for a third running back to have value at some point this year in the Eagles backfield, in addition to enhancing Darren Sproles' value as a quasi-backup to LeSean McCoy.

  Eagles | Two sitting    Mon Aug 18, 11:53 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk (hamstring) and WR Brad Smith (undisclosed) are out of practice Monday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: Polk has the talent to produce in the NFL, but he's got to stay healthy. Chronic shoulder problems in college at Washington caused him to go undrafted in 2012. We'll have to wait and see how long this hamstring problem lingers.

  Eagles | Open to trade offers on Mark Sanchez    Mon Aug 18, 02:37 AM

Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly has told reporters he would be open to trade offers for QB Mark Sanchez, presumably to let Sanchez have a chance at the No. 1 job with another team. Kelly also added that does not mean Sanchez will be dealt, as they need his depth-chart experience behind QB Nick Foles, but the team is always looking to improve.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine any team lighting up the phone lines to acquire Mark Sanchez. The Eagles could (should) keep him around as valuable veteran depth behind Foles. The guys behind Sanzhez (Matt Barkley, G.J. Kinne) lack experience and talent.

  Eagles | Jeremy Maclin probably will practice Monday    Sun Aug 17, 11:41 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) will probably practice Monday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: Maclin's hamstring injury clearly is not a big concern in and of itself, but he is continuing to live up to a reputation of having trouble staying off of the injury report. He's too expensive at his current 6th round ADP.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper (foot) is fully participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 17.

  Eagles | Josh Huff injury update    Sun Aug 17, 11:26 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Josh Huff (shoulder) is expected to miss about a week with a shoulder injury. X-Rays on the injury came back negative, and Huff has his arm in a sling.

Footballguys view: Huff is going to be one of the top backup receivers for the Eagles, and his blocking prowess in the running game will get him some snaps, but he is very unlikely to have fantasy relevance this year.

Footballguys view: Foles did it without his two top targets at wide receiver. Both Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper missed the game against the Patriots. Foles showed good chemistry with rookie Jordan Matthews in the game.

Footballguys view: Matthews is clutch. He was that way in college at Vanderbilt. His game has always reminded us of Eric Decker (Jets). Like Decker, Matthews can run a clean route and make tough catches. With Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin banged up, it's nice to see the rookie perform.
