Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
Miles Sanders Note

Sanders injured his knee in Week 6 against the Ravens and is scheduled to undergo an MRI. The Eagles are reportedly concerned about the severity of the injury and, at the very least, fantasy managers can expect him to miss Week 7, as it's a Thursday game against the Giants.

Carson Wentz Note

Wentz hasn't been that bad from a fantasy standpoint through three games, though he's certainly been a disappointment. A porous offensive line, a dearth of reliable pass-catchers, and Wentz's questionable decision-making have all combined to make it a long season already for Wentz. He's out of the range of starting options, particularly with a difficult schedule on the horizon.

Boston Scott Note

Miles Sanders got a huge boost when the Eagles opted not to sign a notable free agent running back, but Scott's stock has somehow still remained too low. Yes, there were plenty of injuries, but Scott averaged 87.5 yards from scrimmage over the last four games last season and would be in line for significant touches should anything happen to Sanders, who is already battling an injury (Scott had 23 touches in Week 17 after Sanders was injured). Scott should be in line for upwards of 10 touches per game anyway, and also offers the upside of being a locked-in fantasy starter should Sanders get hurt. He's being undervalued by the fantasy community.

Dallas Goedert Note

Goedert was placed on IR on Tuesday with an ankle fracture. He had continued his growth as one of Carson Wentz's favorite targets, but can now be sent to the waiver wire. Even if he returns, the Eagles should have most of their other pass-catchers back, which should result in a decrease in targets for Goedert in any event.

Zach Ertz Note

Ertz injured his ankle in Week 6 and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks. It's been an incredibly disappointing season for the veteran thus far, though there's some reason for optimism when he returns to full health, as the schedule lightens up considerably and the Eagles should get back some other pass-catchers who will lighten the load for Ertz. Still, given the timetable, he can be dropped in redraft leagues if you're in any sort of a roster crunch.

Jalen Reagor Note

Reagor tore the UCL in his thumb, has been placed on IR, and is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks. There's no reason to roster the rookie at this point in redraft leagues, as there's next to no chance he provides value at any point this season.

Alshon Jeffery Note

Jeffery still hasn't returned from his Lisfranc injury as we head past Week 7, and it's unclear when or if he will. Travis Fulgham has established himself as the X receiver, so Jeffery's role will be unclear even when (or if) he returns. Meanwhile, he is reportedly on the trade block. You can roster Jeffery if you have deep benches, but don't be afraid to cut him loose if you don't.

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 (though that's hardly a certainty), which should mean more chances for Elliott. He's a strong starter in 12-team leagues.

DeSean Jackson Note

After hearing about his broken ankle, you should feel free to drop Jackson. Though he wasn't placed on season-ending injured reserve, he may have played his last down of 2020 (and maybe his career).
