Philadelphia Eagles

NFC East

With Doug Pederson out as Eagles head coach, Carson Wentz’ chances of remaining in Philadelphia have significantly increased, a source told ESPN. (Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It was clear after this season that Pederson and Wentz weren’t going to work together moving forward. With Pederson now out as head coach, that increases the likelihood that Wentz remains in Philadelphia as an Eagle in 2021 and beyond. The source told ESPN that the relationship between the team and Wentz is salvageable. This doesn’t necessarily mean Wentz is the Week 1 starter in 2021, but it leaves that as a possibility with Pederson now out of the picture.

The Philadelphia Eagles have dismissed Doug Pederson of his duties as head coach. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After a tumultuous 2020 season that ended in a 4-11-1 record, Eagles brass decided it was best to relieve Doug Pederson of his duties as head coach. Pederson coached the Eagles for the past five seasons, winning Super Bowl LII in 2018. It sounds like GM Howie Roseman and owner Jeffrey Lurie are interested in taking this Eagles team in a different direction starting in 2021, now with a new head coach at the very least. Pederson’s tenure in Philadelphia comes to a close with an overall record of 42-37-1.

Eagles quarterback Nate Sudfeld replaced Jalen Hurts in the second half of Sunday's finale and completed five of his 12 pass attempts for 32 yards and an interception while adding 12 yards rushing.

Fantasy Impact: Sudfeld looked predictably rusty on Sunday in his first game action of the season while playing with a hodgepodge of offensive linemen and wide receivers, and he only entered the game because the Eagles had no interest in winning it.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz remains hopeful about continuing his career in Philadelphia but addressed the uncertainty surrounding next season amidst ongoing contract negotiations. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ertz stated, "My time in Philadelphia has been the best experience I've ever had. ... I want to be here. I don't know what's going to happen next year." The former Pro-Bowl tight end had a down year, scoring only one touchdown across 11 games in an injury-plagued 2020 season. Ertz still has a year remaining on his current contract but has referenced his request for a new contract several times. Continue monitoring Ertz and his contract negotiations as the Eagles head into the offseason.

Eagles kicker Jake Elliott made both of his extra point tries and did not attempt a field goal in Sunday's loss to Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Elliott had a disappointing season in Philadelphia and only attempted one field goal over the final three weeks combined. He finishes the year 14-for-19 on field goal attempts and 24-for-26 on extra point tries.

Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward caught one of his three targets for six yards and completed a 15-yard pass of his own in Sunday's loss to Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Ward finishes the season with 53 receptions for 419 yards and six touchdowns while playing in all 16 games.

Eagles running back Boston Scott rushed 15 times for 65 yards and caught two of his five targets for 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the Washington Football Team.

Fantasy Impact: With Miles Sanders being rested on Sunday, Scott took over the lead role against Washington. For the season, Scott rushed 80 times for 374 yards and a touchdown and caught 25 of his 36 targets for 212 yards and another touchdown.

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts completed 7 of his 20 pass attempts for 72 yards while rushing eight times for 34 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Washington Football Team.

Fantasy Impact: Hurts was playing with a skeleton squad on Sunday as the Eagles rested most of their starters and key contributors, and he himself was rested in favor of Nate Sudfeld for much of the second half. The question now is whether or not Hurts will be the starting quarterback in Philadelphia in 2021.

The Eagles ruled out WR Jalen Reagor (head) for the remainder of Week 17 against Washington. (Source: Jeff McLane on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Reagor finishes his rookie campaign with 31 receptions for 396 yards and one touchdown. He dealt with injuries as well as inconsistent quarterback play and should ultimately be considered a "buy" candidate in dynasty leagues. Reagor was the 21st overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Eagles DE Derrick Barnett will miss the season finale against the Washington Football Team due to a calf injury.

Fantasy Impact: Barnett has been out since Week 16 with a calf injury and will not play in the final game of the season. Barnett registered a career-high 34 tackles but was otherwise, not that impressive for the Eagles this season. Barnett has one year left on his rookie deal and is set to make $10M next season in Philadelphia.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox is inactive against the Washington Football Team in Week 17. (Source: Philadelphia Eagles on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cox will miss the season finale with a neck injury and ends his season with 41 total tackles (9 for loss), 6.5 sacks, and one forced fumble. The nine-year pro made six straight Pro Bowls and remains one of the game's top defensive lineman.

Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is inactive for the team's Week 17 matchup against the Washington Football Team. (Source: Eagles on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles have nothing to play for in Week 17 and are resting many of their starters and key contributors. The team is likely to cut or trade Jeffery this offseason, so they are likely holding him out to avoid a potential injury. With Jeffery and DeSean Jackson both inactive, the Eagles will have Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward, Travis Fulgham, John Hightower, and Quez Watkins at wide receiver.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert has been ruled out for Week 17 with a calf injury. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After being eliminated from playoff contention last week, Goedert and several other key players for the Eagles have been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Football Team. Zach Ertz should be a busy man as Goedert and fellow TE Richard Rodgers have both been ruled out.

The Eagles have ruled out WR DeSean Jackson for Week 17 with an ankle injury. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson caught a long touchdown pass last week in his first action since Week 7 but has now been ruled out for Week 17 with an ankle injury. Jackson just hasn't been able to stay on the field for the last two seasons in Philadelphia. In his absence and with teammate Dallas Goedert ruled out, Fantasy managers can expect Alshon Jeffrey and Zach Ertz to see a ton of targets against the Washington Football Team on Sunday.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) will not play Week 17 vs. Washington. (Source: Philadelphia Eagles on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles will be resting a lot of their starters in a meaningless game against Washington in Week 17. Fire up Boston Scott in DFS if you’re looking for a cheap starting running back option.

Eagles CB Darius Slay (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Cardinals. (Source: Pro Football Talk on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a plus for DeAndre Hopkins and the Cardinals' passing game. Slay will look to clear the league's concussion protocol ahead of Week 16 versus the Cowboys.

The Eagles have officially placed T Jack Driscoll on IR, likely ending his 2020 season. (Source: Jeff McLane on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Driscoll performed well filling in at RT after Philadelphia shut down Lane Johnson (ankle) for the season. Unfortunately, after suffering a "significant" MCL sprain against the Saints in Week 14, his 2020 season is now likely over. This is a massive blow to an offensive line already decimated by injuries and could negatively impact Miles Sanders and quick-footed rookie QB Jalen Hurts.

Eagles wide receiver Travis Fulgham played just 11 snaps on offense on Sunday and was not targeted in the passing game.

Fantasy Impact: Fulgham played the fewest snaps of any wide receiver on the Eagles on Sunday and has now gone two straight games without a catch. He has become an afterthought in the offense just a month after he was its focal point.

Eagles OL Jason Peters (toe) is undergoing surgery and will miss the rest of the season. (Source: Zach Berman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Peters made the move from left tackle to right guard this year, and it more or less worked out when he was healthy. Unfortunately, the toe injury has been too much to overcome. His absence will be a blow to the Eagles' offensive line.

Eagles running back Jordan Howard rushed four times for 19 yards in Sunday's loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles have not been running the ball much in 2020, and starting running back Miles Sanders only received 10 carries on Sunday. But Howard looked at home in Philadelphia in limited snaps, averaging 4.8 yards per carry thanks to a long run of 11 yards.
