Carson Wentz Fringe QB1 Against Shaky Falcons Defense

Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz has lost the early-season magic, as illustrated by his five turnovers over the last four games. Wentz has just two touchdown passes over that same stretch, but he is coming off a season-high 364 yards in this past Sunday's loss to the New York Giants. The Eagles also draw... Read More

Ryan Mathews Scores Short TD, Otherwise Non-Factor For Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles running back Ryan Mathews finished with five carries for 15 yards, including an eight-yard touchdown run, in Sunday's 28-23 loss to the New York Giants.

Jordan Matthews Heavily Involved Again in Loss to Giants

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews caught six passes for 88 yards in Sunday's 28-23 loss to the New York Giants.

Zach Ertz Finally Breaks Out, Worth Consideration Moving Forward

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz finished with eight receptions for 97 yards in Sunday's 28-23 loss to the New York Giants. This game represented a major breakout performance for Ertz, who desperately needed a strong game after four consecutive duds. Ertz caught all eight of his targets and led all players in the game...

Darren Sproles Leads Eagles' Backfield Again, Solid PPR Option

Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles rushed 13 times for 57 yards and caught three passes for 14 yards in Sunday's 28-23 loss to the New York Giants. Sproles also returned two punts for 76 yards, including a 66-yard return. Sproles once again led Philadelphia in carries, rushing yards and offensive touches out of the... Read More

Week 9 Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks

If you played Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr (513 yards, four touchdowns) last week, that was a great move. If you paired Carr with wide receiver Amari Cooper (12 receptions, 173 yards, one TD), that was a brilliant move. Hitting on a majorly productive stack like Carr and Cooper can often be the difference between a... Read More

Josh Huff Released by Eagles Following Arrest on Tuesday

The Philadelphia Eagles released wide receiver Josh Huff on Thursday, two days after he was charged with possession of a handgun without a permit.

Carson Wentz Uninspiring Option in Away Game Against Giants

Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz completed 32 of his 43 passes for 202 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions this past Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. After his three-turnover performance in Week 7 against Minnesota, it was encouraging to see Wentz avoid any turnovers against Dallas. However, his 4.7 yards per pass attempt was... Read More

Darren Sproles Solid PPR Flex Play Despite Uncertain Role

Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles is coming off his biggest workload of the season in last Sunday's game against Dallas. Sproles carried the ball 15 times for 86 yards and caught five passes for 17 yards. The 20 total touches were a new season-high for the shifty veteran, but head coach Doug Pederson told... Read More

Ryan Mathews Still Eagles' Top RB; Difficult to Trust in Fantasy

Philadelphia Eagles running back Ryan Mathews is still the team's No. 1 option in the backfield, head coach Doug Pederson told reporters on Wednesday. Recent events, however, would suggest otherwise. Mathews was mostly an afterthought this past Sunday against Dallas, rushing just four times for 10 yards, including a one-yard touchdown. Mathews also caught one... Read More

Jordan Matthews Low-Ceiling WR3 in Week 9 Matchup

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews is coming off one of his best performances of the season, an 11-catch, 65-yard outing last Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

Zach Ertz Not Worth Starting Amid Recent Struggles

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz has a combined nine receptions for 92 yards over his last four games. It's been a terribly disappointing season for the 25-year-old Ertz, who had a breakout season with 75 receptions for 853 yards in 15 games last season. The Eagles' passing game has been limited under the direction... Read More

Caleb Sturgis Quietly Continues Brilliant Season in Eagles' Loss

Philadelphia Eagles kicker Caleb Sturgis converted all three of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point attempts in Sunday night's 29-23 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He drilled a 55-yarder, his third from 50-plus yards this season, to end the first half. Sturgis is hardly a household name, but fantasy owners will want... Read More

Zach Ertz Disappoints Again, No Longer Worthy of Starting

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz finished with four receptions for 19 yards in Sunday night's 29-23 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Ertz ranks as one of fantasy's biggest disappointments this season, and perhaps the biggest disappointment at tight end. He now has just nine total receptions over his last four games, and hasn't...

Dorial Green-Beckham Notches Best Outing of Season; Still Too Inconsistent

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham caught five passes for 55 yards in Sunday night's 29-23 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Green-Beckham set new season highs for receptions, receiving yards and targets (nine), which is certainly encouraging. The bad news? Drops are still an issue for him, and they were again Sunday night. The... Read More

Jordan Matthews Ends Slump With 11-Catch Game vs. Cowboys

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews caught 11 passes for 65 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's 29-23 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Philadelphia Eagles running back Ryan Mathews rushed four times for 10 yards, including a one-yard touchdown in the second quarter, and caught one pass for one yard in Sunday night's 29-23 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Week 8 Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks

What's better than one touchdown? Two touchdowns, of course.

It might be only one touchdown on the NFL scoreboard, but it counts twice for your fantasy lineup.... Read More

Zach Ertz Needs Breakout Game Sunday Against Cowboys

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz finished with one reception for 14 yards in this past Sunday's win against the previously-unbeaten Minnesota Vikings.

Jordan Matthews Limited by Carson Wentz's Struggles; Risky Play vs. Dallas

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday.

Darren Sproles Intriguing PPR Flex Play Against Dallas

Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles finished with three carries for 26 yards and two receptions for 23 yards in this past Sunday's win against the Minnesota Vikings.

Ryan Mathews Faces Tough Matchup, Safe to Avoid in Week 8

Philadelphia Eagles running back Ryan Mathews finished with 14 carries for 56 yards and one reception for 27 yards in this past Sunday's win against the Minnesota Vikings.

Carson Wentz Too Risky to Start Sunday Against Cowboys

Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz has struggled in his last two starts, failing to top 180 yards in either game while turning it over three times.

Eagles' D/ST Shines in Week 7, Maintains Value With Big-Play Upside

The Philadelphia Eagles' defense tallied a season-high six sacks, forced four turnovers and allowed just 10 points in Sunday's 21-10 win against the previously-unbeaten Minnesota Vikings. Josh Huff returned a second-quarter kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown, further boosting the fantasy output of the Eagles' defense/special teams. Philadelphia doesn't have the NFL's best defense, at...

Darren Sproles Quiet Against Vikings; Low-End PPR Flex Moving Forward

Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles rushed three times for 26 yards and caught two passes for 23 yards in Sunday's 21-10 win against the Minnesota Vikings.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Josh Huff finished with four receptions for 39 yards and returned a second-quarter kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown in Sunday's 21-10 win against the Minnesota Vikings.
