  Eagles | LeGarrette Blount gets vote of confidence    Tue Aug 22, 12:46 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount is a 'beast of a runner' and going to be 'a big part of our offense,' according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Reports about Blount having a weight problem and speculation about his roster spot being in danger have been flying around. Pederson seems to crush that sentiment with these comments. Fantasy owners should just know that Blount hasn't been overly impressive (five carries, eight yards against the Bills last week) in the preseason. His fantasy stock is cooled down with the regular season right around the corner.

  Eagles | LeGarrette Blount having weight issues    Mon Aug 21, 11:05 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount has been having 'weight issues' and looked 'disappointing in practice,' which is why it's possible he might not make the final roster.

Footballguys view: Blount was supposed to be the battering ram for the Eagles offense, but there has been speculation that he won't even make the 53-man roster. Eagles coach Doug Pederson insists that Blount will be a big part of the offense, so for now it looks like his roster spot and starting job are safe despite reports/indications to the contrary.

  Eagles | LeGarrette Blount not guaranteed roster spot    Sun Aug 20, 11:44 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount has struggled to get to the corner on off-tackle runs and has only nine carries for 17 yards through two preseason games, leading Matt Lombardo of NJ.com to conclude Blount may be among the team's cuts this summer.

Footballguys view: Blount wasn't exactly impressive scoring 18 touchdowns last year - they were mostly a product of the Patriots offense dominance. It's difficult to make a strong case for drafting Blount at ADP.

  Eagles | Alshon Jeffery playing catch-up    Sun Aug 20, 11:23 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery did not practice for about a week and a half during training camp in the preseason or participate in team drills, leading wide receivers coach Mike Groh to conclude Jeffery was 'behind' his teammates when it comes to his knowledge of the playbook.

Footballguys view: Jeffery's ceiling is 2nd-3rd value based on past production, but his connection with Carson Wentz is crucial and this isn't a positive note. Zach Ertz could lead this team in targets out of the gate.

  Eagles | LeGarrette Blount held in check    Thu Aug 17, 10:54 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed for eight yards on five carries in the preseason game against Buffalo Bills Thursday, Aug. 17. He also caught two passes for 15 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Blount will likely start to open the season, but Wendell Smallwood could threaten his workload. This is looking like a three, if not four back backfield, with Blount only having value when he scores.

  Eagles | Nick Foles will not play    Thu Aug 17, 06:41 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (elbow) will not play in the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Thursday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: If It ain't about Carson Wentz, we really don't care. When's might be a decent backup fantasy quarterback, but we won't see him much during the game. This will be an awful lot of backup quarterback time.

  Eagles | LeGarrette Blount unimpressive so far    Tue Aug 15, 10:49 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount 'hasn't exactly stood out' during training camp so far, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.

Footballguys view: Blount isn't a flashy player, but he's a battering ram who can grind it out between the tackles. With no live tackling in practice, it would be difficult for a player like him to really stand out.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles to be used more in space    Tue Aug 15, 12:25 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles will probably be used less as a runner this season and more as a receiver in 2017 after the team added LeGarrette Blount in the offseason, according to the Philadelphia Daily News' Paul Domowitch.

Footballguys view: Blount is clearly the battering ram for the offense, but he's not useful in passing situations. Sproles is that guy to turn to when it's 3rd down, but he's going to be splitting time with dynamic rookie DJ Pumphrey. From a fantasy perspective, that split of third-down work negatively impacts the value of both. Sproles is still getting drafted at RB51 (12.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | Ryan Mathews released    Tue Aug 15, 11:43 AM

Updating an earlier report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews was released Tuesday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: Mathews only needed to be cleared medically before the team released him. With injury problems and reports about a lack of confidence, we can't imagine Mathews getting a ton of interest on the open market.

  Eagles | Trey Burton's usage to increase    Tue Aug 15, 10:33 AM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Trey Burton is expected to see more targets out of the slot after the team traded WR Jordan Matthews. Burton and Wentz are close friends, and the two have a rapport on the field. Burton received 36 targets in the last six games last year, and he caught 23 of them.

Footballguys view: Burton was a player to emerge at the end of last year. The addition of weapons like WRs Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith mean the targets won't be thick. Add in a reportedly surging Nelson Agholor (and oh yeah, Zach Ertz) and you can see how Burton's path to fantasy relevance is murky...even with more targets out of the slot.

  Eagles | Nick Foles won't play Thursday    Mon Aug 14, 11:16 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (elbow) will not suit up for the team's next preseason game Thursday, August 17, against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: It's the second preseason game, so starting QB Carson Wentz should be in for a quarter or so. Matt McGloin should get more work with Foles out of action. Foles hopes to play the week after opposite the Miami Dolphins.

  Eagles | Decision on Ryan Mathews coming soon?    Mon Aug 14, 02:19 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews arrived in Philadelphia Monday, Aug. 14, which could generate a decision on his status with the Eagles in the near future.

Footballguys view: Mathews has to first get healthy, then the team should cut him. He has been recovering from offseason neck surgery and needs to be cleared so they can move on and not owe him an injury settlement.

  Eagles | Wendell Smallwood back at practice    Mon Aug 14, 09:28 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: Smallwood is trying to get into the mix behind battering ram LeGarrette Blount. The Eagles have a collection of change-of-pace backs, including Darren Sproles and rookie DJ Pumphrey. If healthy, Smallwood might be able to shoehorn his way into some sort of role.

  Eagles | Jordan Matthews traded to Buffalo    Fri Aug 11, 01:32 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews was traded along with a 2018 third-round selection to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for CB Ronald Darby on Friday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: Darby is an instant upgrade at corner for the Eagles. A second-round pick in 2015, he had a good rookie season but Darby had a bit of a sophomore slump in 2016. The Eagles are counting on him bouncing back in 2017, and with two years left on his rookie deal it's a great move for Philadelphia.

  Eagles | Wendell Smallwood solidifying roster spot    Wed Aug 9, 12:42 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood has run like 'a man possessed' in padded practices and 'really showed he belongs on the roster,' according to Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski.

Footballguys view: Smallwood needs to be motivated to hang on the roster with rookie Donnel Pumphrey already impressing. He is only a deep waiver wire watch list player right now.

  Eagles | Jordan Matthews on the block?    Wed Aug 9, 12:25 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews remains a candidate to be traded, in part due to the team's unexpected depth at receiver, according to Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski.

Footballguys view: Matthews certainly won't have the same weekly and season-long ceiling he has had in the past with the quality of receivers around him. If the Eagles know they won't re-sign him, a trade isn't a bad idea.

  Eagles | Jordan Matthews won't have reduced role    Tue Aug 8, 11:45 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews won't have a reduced role this year, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Matthews still has a limited ceiling with Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith giving the team better outside wide receivers than they had last year, but the buzz of Nelson Agholor cutting into his work appears to be unwarranted. Matthews is maybe a WR3 in PPR, and certainly good bye/injury/emergency depth.

  Eagles | Alshon Jeffery back at practice    Sun Aug 6, 02:25 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) returned to practice Sunday, Aug. 6, after missing the previous four practices due to a shoulder strain.

Footballguys view: The Eagles may hold him out of the preseason game on Thursday, but even if that's the case, we see his presence at practice as a comforting sign. As long as he sees some action in the next few preseason games, he should be fine and really, as long as he and Carson Wentz regularly work on the practice field, they should be able to be in sync. Jeffery is going as the No. 15 receiver off the board right now, and we know he is capable of outplaying that ADP. If he is healthy and Wentz takes the next step forward, Jeffery will put up even better numbers.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor has had 'a total rebirth', will 'live in the slot' and be the Eagles' slot receiver in 2017, according to NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah - a former scout for the team who visited training camp earlier in the week.

Footballguys view: We'll believe it when we see it, and it's hard to imagine first that his hands have improved that much or two, he will find targets behind Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith and Jordan Matthews. As that is his situation, he's rightfully going undrafted in drafts right now.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is over his shoulder injury, but he remains out of practice Friday, Aug. 4, as a precaution. The team hasn't decided if he'll play in the preseason opener.

Footballguys view: As long as Jeffery plays in the third preseason game, there's no reason to think that this will materially affect him, although if we hear a diagnosis of a sprain or injury, we will have to take that into account.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 3. Jeffery's injury does not appear to be serious, and offensive coordinator Frank Reich said he believes Jeffery is being held out as a precaution.

Footballguys view: Jeffery didn't seem concerned by the injury. He does need as much as time as possible to get on the same page as Carson Wentz, but Jeffery is going at a two-round discount from his previous ADP while with the Bears, so some bumps in the transition are baked into his price.
