Wendell Smallwood a healthy scratch once again

Wendell Smallwood is a healthy inactive for the Eagles for the second straight week and will miss Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood is the odd man out for the Eagles at running back right now after the trade for Jay Ajayi prior to the NFL trade deadline. With Blount as the starter, Ajayi as the newly-acquired starter in waiting, Kenjon Barner as the punt and kick returner, and Corey Clement playing very well, Smallwood could be a healthy inactive for the foreseeable future unless there is an injury to one of the names above.

Wendell Smallwood is the odd man out Sunday

Wendell Smallwood was inactive for Philadelphia's Week 11 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood was a healthy scratch and is behind Jay Ajayi, LeGarrette Blount, and Corey Clement on the running back depth chart and behind Kenjon Barner as a kick returner. With all of the above finding varying levels of success, Smallwood does not have any short-term value unless there is an injury.

Wendell Smallwood plays just six snaps Sunday

Wendell Smallwood was active on Sunday but was barely on the field, as he played in just six of the team's 69 offensive snaps. He rushed five times for 25 yards, all of which came in the fourth quarter after the game had all but been decided.

Fantasy Impact

With the addition of Jay Ajayi, Smallwood looks like he may be the running back who stands to lose the most in Philadelphia. If not for Zach Ertz going down with a hamstring injury and getting scratched late on Sunday morning, Smallwood could have ended up as inactive. He appears to be behind Ajayi, Blount, and Clement on the depth chart, severely limiting his value for the time being.

Wendell Smallwood receives just two touches Sunday

Wendell Smallwood received just two touches in Philadelphia's win over the 49ers on Sunday, rushing once for five yards and adding one reception for nine yards.

Fantasy Impact

With wet conditions and Smallwood still attempting to get back to 100% from a knee injury, it is possible that the team was merely cautious with their young running back on Sunday. However, the Eagles do seem to want to utilize a running back committee that features Blount first and three additional running backs as part of the rotation, so Smallwood's value could be limited in the short term.

Wendell Smallwood returns but has quiet night Monday

Wendell Smallwood returned to the active roster on Monday night after missing time due to a knee injury, but he rushed for just 25 yards and eight carries and added two catches for 14 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood looked healthy on Monday night, but he split time with Blount, Clement, and Barner and has a fairly low fantasy ceiling as long as there is an emphasis on a running back rotation in Philadelphia. Their running backs are mostly touchdown-dependent at this point, and Clement is the only back who got into the end zone this week.
