Wendell Smallwood INACTIVE for Thursday Night Football

Wendell Smallwood is inactive for Philadelphia's Week 6 matchup with the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood was not able to practice at all during the short week as he attempts to return from a knee injury that sidelined him for Week 5, so his status for Thursday night is not surprising. With Darren Sproles out for the year, Smallwood is the back who stands to benefit the most in terms of playing time, touches, and catching passes out of the backfield. With a longer break to get healthy after a Thursday night game, Smallwood will likely be back for Week 7.

Wendell Smallwood INACTIVE Week 5

Wendell Smallwood is inactive for Philadelphia’s Week 5 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood was limited all week with a knee injury and was not able to practice on Friday, so his inactive status is not surprising but is disappointing for Smallwood owners who were hoping to see his role continue to increase in the wake of the season-ending injury to Darren Sproles. With Smallwood out, LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement are expected to handle most of the duties in the backfield, with the recently reacquired Kenjon Barner possibly rotating in for passing downs.

Wendell Smallwood not expected to play Week 5

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) is not expected to play in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood is trending toward an inactive designation for Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals with a knee injury. Expect Corey Clement to garner an expanded role in Smallwood's absence in Week 5.

Wendell Smallwood scores first touchdown of the season Sunday

Wendell Smallwood rushed 10 times for 34 yards and a touchdown and added four catches for 45 yards in Sunday's win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

While LeGarrette Blount had the most success of any of Philadelphia's running backs on Sunday, Smallwood rotated in and had some success of his own. With Darren Sproles out for the year, Smallwood took over as the primary pass-catching back, something that should continue going forward.

Wendell Smallwood leads Eagles in rushing Week 3

Wendell Smallwood rushed 12 times for 71 yards and caught one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood saw his role increase after Darren Sproles went down with an arm injury, and it sounds like Sproles could be out for an extended period of time. If that is, in fact, the case, Smallwood's role increase could be permanent. He will still have to share touches with LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement going forward, but Smallwood's value just increased with the injury to Sproles.
