Wendell Smallwood rushes for 32 yards against Panthers

Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood rushed nine times for 32 yards and caught two passes for five yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood technically started for the Eagles on Sunday, but he split time with both Corey Clement and Josh Adams. Barring another injury to the Philadelphia backfield, Smallwood should be nothing more than an emergency bye week flex option in most fantasy formats.

Wendell Smallwood sees 19 touches on Thursday night

Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood, starting in place of the injured Jay Ajayi and the limited Corey Clement, rushed 18 times for 51 yards and caught one pass for no yards in Thursday's win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood got the start and the lion's share of the touches out of the Philadelphia backfield, but he was held to just 2.8 yards per carry on the night. With Ajayi out for the season due to a torn ACL, Smallwood will have a bigger role in the Philadelphia offense. However, once Clement is all the way back from his quadriceps injury, he will likely take over as the starter and take away from Smallwood's touches.

Wendell Smallwood finds the end zone against Vikings

Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood rushed three times for 27 yards and caught three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood continues to do the most with his limited opportunities as the Eagles deal with a number of injuries to their running backs. With Darren Sproles and Corey Clement not playing and Jay Ajayi playing hurt in Week 5, Smallwood managed to put up 71 yards on six touches. With Clement and Sproles expected back soon, though, Smallwood's already limited value will take a hit.

Wendell Smallwood averages 7.8 yards on five carries Sunday

Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood rushed five times for 39 yards and caught three passes for 15 yards in Sunday's loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood was in line for an increased role for the second week in a row with Corey Clement on the inactive list due to a quad injury, and he delivered a strong performance on limited touches. Jay Ajayi was also banged up but played through a small back fracture, and Smallwood played well when he was called upon. With Clement and Darren Sproles both possibly back next week, Smallwood's value will take a significant hit. Unless there are additional injuries to the Philadelphia backfield, Smallwood should remain either on the bench or the waiver wire depending on roster limits.

Wendell Smallwood finds the end zone against the Colts

Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood rushed 10 times for 56 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Colts. He also caught three passes for 35 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood capitalized on his opportunity with both Darren Sproles and Jay Ajayi out in Week 3, but it will be hard to rely on him going forward with Ajayi returning and Corey Clement still sharing touches in the backfield. He had a solid performance this week, but he is not worth rostering outside of dynasty leagues.
