Fantasy Impact: It is now apparent that the Eagles are just getting beat up front with all of the injuries along the offensive line. Head coach Chip Kelly said in his post game press conference that they were beat up front all day despite the 49ers playing zone and rushing only 3 or 4 guys all day. I would continue to be realistic about how productive the team will be on the ground until they are able to get some linemen back healthy up front.

LeSean McCoy gained only 22 yards on the ground in 20 attempts in the Eagles win against division opponent Washington Redskins on Sunday, September 21st, 2014. (Source: Eliot Shorr-Parks)

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles offensive line is banged up and McCoy is yet to average over 4 yards per carry in a game this season. The real story may be that McCoy did not catch a single pass in the game therefore limiting his points in ppr formats to only 2. It isn't time to panic yet, but some reduction in production is expected with the current Eagles' offensive line woes.

Lesean McCoy had 20 carries for 79 yards and found the endzone for the first time this season against the Colts on Monday night football. He added 4 catches for 23 yards. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Despite Darren Sproles strong performance, McCoy is still making fantasy owners happy with another strong showing in week 2.

Eagles' Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis has a sprained left MCL and starting right tackle Allen Barbre is also expected to miss time with a high ankle sprain. No definite timetables have been given as of yet, but Mathis is expected to miss at least a month and Barbre is probably close to that. The likely starters will be Dennis Kelly at left guard and Andrew Gardner at right tackle. The Eagles will get Lane Johnson back at right tackle after he has finished serving his 4 game suspension for his use of performance enhancing drugs. (Source: Les Bowen)

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles will have to adjust upfront but the production of the Eagles' running backs and Nick Foles could decrease for a few weeks until they get back to full strength up front.

With Sproles shining, McCoy took a back seat on Sunday. Even though the Jaguars came to Philadelphia with one of the worst run defenses in the league, the starter ended with just 74 yards on 21 carries and failed to make it to the end zone. "We all struggled," McCoy said. "I didn't feel like myself today. I didn't make the right plays I normally make." (Source: NJ.com)

Fantasy Impact: LeSean McCoy didn't blow up the stat sheet as most people would have expected but he still had a solid game. He touched the ball 27 times, so no reason to panic about Darren Sproles cutting into his workload. Expect McCoy to rebound next week as the Eagles play the Indianapolis Colts Monday Night.

LeSean McCoy was sent for X-rays on his thumb in the first quarter of Thursday's game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. McCoy called for the trainer after his first touch on the opening series. NFL Media Insider Jeff Darlington reported X-rays on McCoy's thumb came back negative. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: LeSean McCoy looked good in the limited time he played. He rushed 4 times for 24 yards and had 2 receptions for 26 yards including a 22 yard screen that went for a touchdown.

LeSean McCoy had an injury scare when he missed practice Sunday, August 17th for a problem with what he called “a small version of turf toe.” He had an X-Ray and MRI as a precaution, but is reportedly fine. (Source: Profootballtalk.com)

Fantasy Impact: McCoy is a valuable commodity and top fantasy pick, so any injury news will cause an owner's heart to skip a beat. However, he seems to be in the clear from this injury. Any major injury would propel backup Chris Polk into fantasy relevance, since most McCoy owners probably wouldn't have insured him with the aging scat back Darren Sproles.

Any time you get a win it's a great feeling as they are so hard to come by in this league. And anytime you can score a TD while winning it's a really good feeling. Admittedly, I've yet to play my best football but we are right where we want to be as a team in terms of record at 2-0 so I can't complain. Believe me no one puts pressure on me like myself so I'll stay pushing for that signature game. ...

Man, that was not the Philadelphia Eagles’ best game last week. The first half we couldn’t do anything right and the Jacksonville Jaguars could. That team has a lot of young talent, but one player caught my eye: that rookie out The U (Miami), Allen Hurns. That kid is a beast and definitely a fantasy pick. I met him in Miami training this summer and he was real quiet but you could tell ...
