Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 Rest of Season Rankings

DeVonta Smith Note

The story remains the same for Smith, who has proven to be a volatile fantasy option in the Eagles' shaky passing offense. At this point fantasy managers should be buying Smith when he has a down game and selling him when he gets hot. The hot-and-cold nature of Jalen Hurts' quarterbacking abilities will make Smith's big games tough to predict. Overall, he should be viewed as a high-end WR3. The Jets are a nice bounce back spot for Week 13.

Miles Sanders Note

The 24-year-old rushed 16 times for 94 yards against the Saints on Sunday as the Eagles once again rode a strong rushing attack to victory. It was a nice performance in his first game since returning from IR. Sanders was splitting carries with Jordan Howard before the latter exited the game with a knee injury. Sanders served as Philadelphia's lead runner from that point on. His workload would increase if Howard can't play in Week 12.

Jalen Hurts Note

The sophomore QB didn't have it as a passer in Week 12, completing just 14-of-31 passes for 129 yards, zero TDs, and three interceptions. He somewhat salvaged his box score results with 77 rushing yards, but the performance was still a disappointment. Still, it's his first bad day as a fantasy QB this season. Fantasy managers should remain confident firing him up against the Jets in Week 13.

Boston Scott Note

It's official. Scott needs an injury to one of Miles Sanders or Kenneth Gainwell to even have a shot at weekly touches. He didn't receive a single target or carry in Week 1, while Gainwell played on 25 snaps. Scott can be let go to the waiver wire entering Week 2.

Dallas Goedert Note

Goedert has yet to fully pop in the box score, but his underlying usage has been fantastic since the Zach Ertz trade. On Sunday against the Saints he caught 5-of-8 targets for 62 yards. He had a 33% target share. The Eagles have transformed into a run-heavy offense over the past month, which limits Goedert's ultimate upside. Still, the profile is that of a mid-tier TE1.

Jordan Howard Note

Howard is a priority waiver wire add entering Week 10 after he seemingly operated as the Eagles' primary ball-carrier in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. Over his past two games Howard has rushed 29 times for 128 yards and three touchdowns. He saw seven more carries than Boston Scott in Week 9. There's a chance that he'll retain a role even when Miles Sanders returns. Consider Howard a low-end RB2 for Week 10 against the Broncos.

Kenneth Gainwell Note

Philadelphia running backs scored four touchdowns in Week 8 against Detroit, but somehow Gainwell accounted for zero of them. The rookie RB was given just one touch in the game's first three quarters. He then led the backfield with 12 touches in an uncompetitive fourth quarter. This was extremely odd, but perhaps Gainwell is just viewed as the pass catching back and this game featured zero negative game script. At the very least it's worth holding onto Gainwell for at least one more week. The Eagles are unlikely to be leading too often rest-of-season.

Jalen Reagor Note

Not every rookie WR took the league by storm. Jalen Reagor struggled with injury and his play on the field in year one with the Eagles. A new HC/OC and QB gives him a second chance, but he'll have to make the most of it, or he could find himself in the doghouse quickly. He's an interesting buy low in dynasty right now, but the fact his usage
is unknown in this offense makes him a dicey '21 investment.
