Player News - Eagles

Date: Team: Pos:

Eagles TE Richard Rodgers (knee, injured reserve) has been cleared to resume practicing.

It opens Rodgers' three-week window to be activated to the active roster. A poor blocker who is not needed behind pass catchers Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, Rodgers won't have a route to snaps on offense.
Nov 13 - 4:44 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson confirmed Josh Adams will get more carries going forward.

Adams has averaged 6.25 yards per carry over the last three games, but he only has 20 attempts over that span including just seven against the Cowboys on Sunday night. Adams is clearly Philly's best option on early downs, and they need to get him some more carries. He is the only Eagles running back worth rostering in shallow redraft formats.

Eagles CB Ronald Darby suffered a torn ACL Week 10 against the Cowboys.

The injury did not look good on the field Sunday night, and coach Doug Pederson confirmed the worst on Monday morning. Already struggling at corner, the Eagles will now be without their best option for the rest of the season, an especially tough pill to swallow with a trip to New Orleans on deck. As for Darby, this injury could not have come at a worse time. He is scheduled to be a free agent this spring.

Zach Ertz caught 14-of-16 targets for 145 yards and two touchdowns in Week 10 against the Cowboys.

It was the best game of a dominant season for Ertz. The Cowboys left Ertz wide open down the seam for a 15-yard touchdown in the third quarter for his first touchdown, and he scored his second TD on a goal-line throw from Carson Wentz. Ertz has been one of the most consistent tight ends in the league with 70 yards or a touchdown in 8-of-9 games. He'll be a top-five play for a matchup with the Saints in Week 11.

Golden Tate was held to two catches for 19 yards in Week 10 against the Cowboys.

Tate didn't have much of a role despite having the bye week to learn the Eagles' playbook. He barely saw the field in the second half. Tate should see a larger role as he becomes more acclimated in the offense. He’ll be hard to trust despite a potential Week 11 shootout with the Saints.
Nov 12 - 12:00 AM

Jordan Matthews caught three passes for 40 yards in Week 10 against the Cowboys.

Matthews got the start in three-wide sets over Golden Tate. He made the most of his three targets, but it's only a matter of time before Matthews gives way to Tate. Matthews won't be a realistic fantasy option for Week 11's matchup with the Saints.
Nov 11 - 11:59 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 4-of-8 targets for 48 yards in Week 10 against the Cowboys.

Jeffery wasn't much of a factor in this one. This could have been a worse game, but Jeffery got half of his yards on a 17-yard catch late in the fourth quarter. His only red-zone opportunity was a dropped touchdown after a hard hit in the end-zone. Jeffery is trending down after getting held to 35 yards last week. He's in a rebound spot against the Saints in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 11:56 PM

Nelson Agholor caught 5-of-7 targets for 83 yards in Week 10 against Dallas.

It breaks a downward trend for Agholor, who was held under 50 yards in six of the last nine games. Agholor missed a few plays with a stinger but was able to return. Most of his damage came on a 51-yard catch late in the fourth quarter. Agholor has a decent target share, but he's going to lose some targets when Golden Tate gets up to speed.
Nov 11 - 11:53 PM

Corey Clement rushed five times for 13 yards in Week 10 against the Cowboys.

His only catch went for negative yards. It’s another nondescript game from Clement, who hasn’t had more than 30 total yards the last three weeks. Even with Darren Sproles not close to returning, Clement is just a low-volume third-down back.
Nov 11 - 11:47 PM

Wendell Smallwood had two carries for four yards in Week 10 against the Cowboys.

Smallwood got most of his snaps in the two-minute offense. He’s been passed on the depth chart by Josh Adams. Smallwood is droppable in standard leagues.
Nov 11 - 11:46 PM

Josh Adams rushed seven times for 47 yards in Week 10 against the Cowboys.

Adams was the Eagles' leading rusher and saw more carries than Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement. After outplaying Smallwood before the bye, he's cemented his role ahead of Smallwood as the primary early-down back. Adams is worth picking up in leagues where available. He has an attackable matchup against the Saints in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 11:45 PM

Carson Wentz completed 32-of-44 passes for 360 yards with two touchdown and an interception in Week 10 against the Cowboys.

The Eagles didn't even try to run in this one, with the 44 attempts Wentz's second most of the year. Wentz rebounded from an early pick, but couldn't rally the Eagles to a fourth quarter comeback. Both of his touchdowns came on red-zone throws to Zach Ertz. Wentz has been locked in with at least two TDs in six straight games. He gets a likely shootout with the Saints in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 11:32 PM

Eagles CB Ronald Darby suffered a knee injury in Week 10 against Dallas.

It was a non-contact injury. Darby was quickly ruled out, suggesting it's serious. The Eagles are running thin in the secondary with Sidney Jones and Jalen Mills also sidelined. Chandon Sullivan replaced Darby at cornerback.
Nov 11 - 10:44 PM

Eagles RT Lane Johnson (knee) is inactive for Week 10 against Dallas.

The Eagles spent the entire week talking up Johnson's chances of playing. He was limited in practice, but didn't show enough to be active. Johnson should be on track to return in Week 11. The rest of the Eagles inactives are DB Deiondre' Hall, CB Sidney Jones, DB Jalen Mills, OG Matt Pryor, RB Darren Sproles, and QB Nate Sudfeld.
Nov 11 - 6:56 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles plan to line up Golden Tate in multiple spots.

Tate was mostly limited to the slot in Detroit, but the Eagles plan to use him all over the field. He's picked up the offense quickly over the bye week and will have an immediate role in three-wide sets. Tate is our No. 24 ranked wideout for Week 10.
