  Eagles | Sam Bradford makes his statement    Sun Aug 28, 12:36 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford completed 17 of his 20 pass attempts for 167 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Indianapolis Colts.

Footballguys view: It's a preseason game against a team who has a defense that can be best categorized as a work in progress. Bradford doesn't get us excited -- as fantasy analysts or football fans. However, the veteran is going to start for the Eagles in 2016. With rookie first-round pick Carson Wentz being developed slowly, we could see Bradford as the top guy for the whole season.

  Eagles | Dorial Green-Beckham hauls in TD    Sun Aug 28, 12:35 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham saw his first game action with the team in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Indianapolis Colts. He had two receptions for 15 yards and a touchdown before departing.

Footballguys view: Green-Beckham is a big-bodied receiver who could work well as a red-zone target for the Eagles. Like Chancellor Palpatine watched little Ani, we'll continue to watch Green-Beckham's development with great interest.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz on track to play Thursday    Sat Aug 27, 07:42 PM

Philadelphia Eagles rookie QB Carson Wentz (ribs) was cleared to throw the ball Friday, Aug. 26, and reportedly 'looked very sharp pre-game' Saturday, Aug. 27. He is expected to play in the team's exhibition finale Thursday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Wentz is the future franchise QB of the Eagles, but he's not likely to see the field this year if the team has their way. Sam Bradford will start and Chase Daniel should serve as his primary backup.

  Eagles | Jordan Matthews promises to play Week 1    Wed Aug 24, 08:15 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) promised he'd be ready for Week 1. The wideout hasn't played yet this preseason.

Footballguys view: The Eagles have been working towards this all along. Matthews should be able to get some practice time in before the start of the regular season. Fantasy owners need to consider him a potential value pick where he's going off boards right now. He's WR29 (5.10) in 12-team PPR leagues, but there's a chance he could finish as a mid-range WR2 as the primary target in the Eagles passing game in 2016.

  Eagles | Dorial Green-Beckham to work with starters    Wed Aug 24, 06:41 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham will receive snaps with the first-team offense during the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Aug. 27, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Talent has never been a question with Green-Beckham. If properly used and motivated, Green-Beckham could develop into one of the best WRs in the game. We're not counting on that, but we will be watching to see how he transitions with his new team.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz misses another practice    Wed Aug 24, 12:21 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (ribs) did not practice Wednesday, Aug. 24.

Footballguys view: Rib injuries are painful to deal with and they're tricky to come back from without time. The Eagles are in no rush with Wentz, so he'll have plenty of time to fully heal. Wentz should sit the bench this year while Sam Bradford starts for the Eagles.

  Eagles | Jordan Matthews not practicing    Wed Aug 24, 12:16 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Aug. 24.

Footballguys view: He's got a bone bruise on his knee, but all signs indicate that Matthews will be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. Fantasy owners should consider him a WR3 in 2016. He's going off the board at WR29 (5.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | Wendell Smallwood to be busy    Wed Aug 24, 08:34 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood is expected to see a lot of action in the third preseason game to make up for the time he missed with a quadriceps injury.

Footballguys view: In college at West Virginia, Smallwood was quite productive on the ground. In fact, last year he was the Big 12's leading rusher with over 1,500 yards. He's a rhythm runner who lacks elite speed or burst. Smallwood does have good vision, but he's not particularly creative or elusive in the open field. A sleeper name in some circles, the rookie is worth monitoring behind the oft-injured Eagles starter Ryan Mathews.

  Eagles | Acquired pick in question for Eagles?    Tue Aug 23, 02:16 PM

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez was acquired by Denver in exchange for a conditional pick with the Philadelphia Eagles. Sanchez must make Denver's final roster in order for the Eagles to keep that pick.

Footballguys view: If Sanchez can't win the starting job, what's the point of keeping him around? Trevor Siemian may win the starting job for the regular season as he's been pegged to start in the dress rehearsal for the regular season aka week three of the preseason. Rookie first-round pick Paxton Lynch may prove to be capable of being his backup, and that makes Sanchez expendable. Not only would Denver not have to surrender a pick, they would also get $3.5 million in salary cap relief from cutting the veteran.

  Eagles | Stephen Tulloch to compete for MLB job    Mon Aug 22, 07:32 PM

  Eagles | Carson Wentz day to day    Mon Aug 22, 10:43 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (ribs) remains day to day and will not throw Monday, Aug. 22. He threw Saturday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: Rib injuries are known to be painful, and the recovery time varies from player to player. Wentz is clearly the future of this team at the QB position, but the rookie should sit all year behind Sam Bradford.

  Eagles | Isaac Seumalo securing starting gig    Sun Aug 21, 09:45 PM

  Eagles | Stephen Tulloch inks deal with Philly    Sun Aug 21, 06:33 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles signed free-agent LB Stephen Tulloch (Lions) to a one-year deal reportedly worth up to $3 million, including $1.75 million guaranteed, on Sunday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: Tulloch has a history with Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz and he can provide depth at multiple linebacker positions.

  Eagles | Jordan Matthews should play Week 1    Sat Aug 20, 11:00 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) should be ready for the start of the regular season, according to head coach Doug Pederson. Matthews is considered day-to-day, but Pederson is not sure if Matthews will practice this week.

Footballguys view: Matthews' running mates on the outside are still up in the air, with 2015 first-rounder Nelson Agholor still likely to get a spot by default. Matthews should be a high volume play over the course of the year, but he had a long stretch of poor games last season in a similar situation.

  Eagles | Kenjon Barner the No. 2    Fri Aug 19, 09:46 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner has made it clear that he is the No. 2 running back behind RB Ryan Mathews, according to beat writer Reuben Frank. He has rushed 13 times for 76 yards in the first two preseason games.

Footballguys view: Barner is probably #2 behind Mathews as a between the tackles runner, but he is not overly impressive in this area, and Darren Sproles is a better receiver out of the backfield. This offense is looking like one of the league's weaker units, but we'll keep Barner on our waiver wire watch list.

  Eagles | Paul Turner impressing    Fri Aug 19, 09:26 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Paul Turner has been the best wide receiver for the team aside from WR Jordan Matthews, in the opinion of beat writer Reuben Frank. He has made highlight plays, including a one-handed catch in the second preseason game.

Footballguys view: This is a sign of the dire straits the Eagles are in at wide receiver. Turner has been a steady performer and stayed on the field in camp, which is more than the other undrafted wide receivers can say. He has even gotten snaps with the first team as a slot receiver with Jordan Matthews out. Turner might force the Eagles to keep six receivers or push Chris Givens and/or Rueben Randle out of a roster spot.

  Eagles | No catches for Dorial Green-Beckham     Thu Aug 18, 10:42 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham had no catches on two targets in a 17-0 preseason win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: In his first game with his new team, Green-Beckham didn't do anything. We'll see how he continues to fit in with the Eagles. Don't expect him to be a fantasy relevant player right off the bat. He's a lottery ticket pick late in the draft in only the deepest leagues.

  Eagles | Nelson Agholor not progressing    Thu Aug 18, 12:48 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor hasn't progressed much during his second offseason, typically when the lights start to go on for receivers. Beat writer Jeff McLane says Agholor has struggled to catch balls, create separation and run consistent routes and it showed in the preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: Agholor has been a disappointment, which might be why the team traded for Dorial Green-Beckham despite his own issues. Right now we see Agholor as a WR6 - just depth - but if he doesn't pick up the pace, he might not even be that good. We're not expecting the Doug Pederson offense to fill the air with footballs, so look elsewhere for your WR depth.

  Eagles | Special teams might save Josh Huff    Thu Aug 18, 12:47 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Josh Huff is entering his third year with the team, and the clock is ticking on his usefulness as a receiver. His competency in the kick return game might be the only reason he remains on the final roster.

Footballguys view: We agree that his spot is precarious at best. He shouldn't be a roster consideration for Fantasy GMs though, as he has Jordan Matthews, Nelson Algholor and now Dorial Green-Beckham to contend with.If Wendall Smallwood can return kicks as well as Huff, expect the receiver to be packing his bags by Week 1.

  Eagles | Two Eagles on the bubble    Wed Aug 17, 10:05 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle and WR Chris Givens have failed to impress, and they could fail to make the team.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz will travel, not play    Tue Aug 16, 10:10 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (rib) will travel for the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he will not play in the game. 'The reason why is he's a quarterback and I want him involved in every single meeting, so we don't stunt his growth,' head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday, Aug. 16. 'I want to continue that whole process with him. And (with) his injury, it's a rib injury. (With) guys that have hamstrings and quads, it's a little bit different.'

  Eagles | Dorial Green-Beckham won't play Thursday    Tue Aug 16, 10:09 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Doug Pederson. However, he will go on the trip and be involved with the team, doing some work before traveling.

Footballguys view: Green-Beckham is only worth a very late pick now because he will be eased into the offense, but he also has little competition to move up the depth chart at outside receiver. Hopefully he gets off on the right foot in his new organization.

  Eagles | Dorial Green-Beckham sent to Eagles    Tue Aug 16, 10:15 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham was acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday, Aug. 16, in exchange for Eagles OG Dennis Kelly.

Footballguys view: The Titans traded him for pocket lint - a backup offensive lineman - so they were just ready to move on from a player that they felt was not buying into the program. He can move up the Eagles depth chart quickly because they were clearly not happy with their outside receivers. Green-Beckham is still just a speculative late round pick, and rookie Tajae Sharpe is that much closer to starting Week 1 vs. Minnesota.

  Eagles | Rueben Randle's 'embarrassing' effort    Fri Aug 12, 01:13 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle's performance in Philadelphia's first preseason game, Thursday, Aug. 11, was described as an 'embarrassment' by PhillyVoice.com's Jimmy Kempski. He noted Randle's poor route-running and blocking efforts. Kempski said, 'QBs can't possibly want him on the field.' Randle played 28 offensive snaps, hauling in one of his three targets for just three yards.

Footballguys view: Has he not seen Randle before? Randle is a player who has always struggled dating back to his college career at LSU. His change of scenery this offseason isn't going to change who he is. The former Giants WR was a disappointment in New York and we're not predicting that to all of a sudden change because he's now in Philadelphia.

  Eagles | Shaky debut for Carson Wentz    Thu Aug 11, 10:38 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz completed 12 of his 24 passes for 89 yards and an interception in the preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: Wentz also got banged around a fair bit in the backfield, though he wasn't sacked. It's hard to get too down on what was, admittedly, a poor performance as he was working with backups, third stringers and guys who will never see a snap in a proper NFL game. That said, we knew he had a lot of work to do, and the Eagles expected they would need patience. He's not worth a redraft pick, but we think he is a solid pick in the mid-to-late second round of a rookie draft.
