2020 Draft Rankings
Miles Sanders Note

We all know Doug Pederson has loved his timeshares since coming to the Eagles, and after they moved on from Jordan Howard, many expected them to add a running back in the draft. Things can change, as there are a few free agent running backs out there, but for now, Sanders has the looks of a 15-plus touch running back.

Zach Ertz Note

After posting TE1-type numbers in 78.6 percent of his games in 2017, Ertz has slowly started to regress. In 2018, that mark went down to 68.8 percent, and then just 53.3 percent in 2019. The emergence of Dallas Goedert has surely lowered his consistency, as well as his ceiling. Not only that, but the Eagles added tons of wide receiver talent in this year's draft, which will only make targets harder to come by. Ertz should still be considered a top-five tight end by everyone, but he's not someone to consider in the top four rounds.

Carson Wentz Note

Despite missing every starting wide receiver not named Nelson Agholor, Wentz was able to throw for over 4,000 yards and 27 touchdowns in 2019, highlighting just how stable his floor is when healthy. The Eagles rewarded him by drafting three wide receivers, as well as trading for Marquise Goodwin. It's worth noting that the Eagles did strengthen their defense, which could lead to fewer pass attempts, but his efficiency should rise. His weekly ceiling may not be as high as someone like Josh Allen, but his weekly floor is much higher.

Dallas Goedert Note

We saw an upward trajectory in Goedert's career in 2019, though much of it was due to injuries to all of the wide receivers. Still, he saw at least five targets in 10 of the last 11 games, highlighting how much he's trusted. He's one of the rare cases of a tight end handcuff who has league-winning upside should anything happen to Zach Ertz. He does present some value on his own, but not enough to make it into the top-12 conversation.

Jalen Reagor Note

If everyone remains healthy in Philadelphia, it's going to be tough for Reagor to see more than 5-6 targets per game. That's the thing, though. The combination of Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson is not one we're expecting to be healthy all year, which provides Reagor with some upside that could be tapped into. He's an ideal bench stash that you can play when we know Jeffery will deal with a top-tier cornerback, or if/when one of them misses a game. He could be a fantasy superstar if he gets the targets.

Boston Scott Note

The end of the 2019 season brought a lot of optimism for Scott's outlook, racking up 350 total yards and four touchdowns on just 61 touches over the season's final four games. During those four games, Miles Sanders scored exactly 1.3 more fantasy points than Scott. It may have been good enough for the Eagles to avoid free agent running backs and allow him to be the part of the timeshare duo with Sanders.

DeSean Jackson Note

We only got to see Jackson in Doug Pederson's offense for one full game before the wheels fell off and Jackson needed to be shut down. In that game, he caught 8-of-9 targets for 154 yards and two touchdowns. The Eagles drafted a lot of speed, but Jackson will be there to mentor them and will be starting in 2WR sets.

Alshon Jeffery Note

Since joining the Eagles in 2017, Jeffery has played 38 games for them. In those 38 games, he's finished with WR1-type numbers 10 times, while posting WR2 (or better) numbers 16 times. For someone who's being drafted outside the top 40 wide receivers, that's pretty dang good. Sure, you have to worry about injuries, but when you have him as your WR4 or WR5, you're not too concerned.

Philadelphia Eagles Note

Jake Elliott Note

Elliott actually had his most accurate year of his career (84.6% field goal percentage, 35-of-37 extra points made), but he simply saw fewer chances. After seeing 31 field goal attempts in each of his first two seasons, he saw just 26 last year, and only 11 from at least 40 yards. The Eagles offense should be somewhat better this year if the team can avoid similar devastating injuries to its receivers, which should mean more chances for Elliott. He's a borderline starter in 12-team leagues.
