Philadelphia Eagles

NFC East

Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer writes that free agent Nelson Agholor is "unlikely to return". (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Agholor had a rough season dealing with drops and injuries. He wound up catching just 39 passes for 363 yards. He's still just 26 years old, however, and not a bad reclamation project for a team in need of receiver depth.

Fantasy Impact: McCown came off the bench to replace a concussed Carson Wentz and nearly led the Eagles to victory over the Seahawks. He was clearly injured during the game, but the extent of the injury is a bit surprising and shows the toughness of the veteran. McCown's availability for the 2021 season shouldn't be impacted by the injury, though it's not clear if the veteran, who came out of retirement to sign with the Eagles, will return for another season.

Miles Sanders (knee) says he won't require off-season surgery. (Source: Jeff McLane on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Sanders injured his knee in Sunday's Wild Card loss to the Seahawks but it doesn't appear to be a serious issue. Jordan Howard is a free agent now and if he leaves the team Sanders could see a lot more opportunity in his sophomore season. The 22-year-old rushed for 818 yards this year while adding an additional 509 through the air.

Eagles kicker Jake Elliott made all three of his field goal attempts in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Unfortunately for the Eagles, Elliott's three field goals represented the only points they scored on Sunday as Carson Wentz was knocked out of the game with a concussion and the offense struggled to move the ball consistently.

The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST held the Seattle Seahawks to 17 points in a 17-9 loss in the first round of the NFL playoffs on Sunday, recording one sack while failing to force any turnovers.

Fantasy Impact: While the Philadelphia Eagles D/ST stepped up in a big way on Sunday, many of the same problems that have hindered them all season hurt them in this game, including their inability to force turnovers and get off the field on third down. Their run defense remains one of the best in the league, but this unit will need to fix its problems in the secondary if it is going to make any strides in 2020.

Eagles tight end Zach Ertz, playing through two broken ribs and recovering from a lacerated kidney, caught two passes for 44 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Ertz was clearly not 100% on Sunday but pushed through a couple of severe injuries to play and be effective. The offense changed once Carson Wentz was ruled out due to a concussion, but Ertz still managed to haul in two of his four targets, including a 32-yarder. He should once again be one of the top fantasy tight ends in 2020, especially in PPR formats.

Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward caught three of his four targets for 24 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the first round of the NFL playoffs.

Fantasy Impact: Ward has been a fan-favorite in Philadelphia since the preseason, and he emerged as a reliable target for Carson Wentz after seemingly all of the team's other wide receivers went down with injuries during the season. Unfortunately, Wentz left this game in the first quarter due to a concussion, and the offense struggled with Josh McCown at the helm. If nothing else, Ward has likely earned a shot at competing for a roster spot and playing time heading into next season.

Eagles running back Boston Scott rushed six times for 25 yards and caught three passes for 23 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: An unknown member of the Philadelphia practice squad earlier this season, Scott emerged as a weapon for the offense in the second half of the season after a number of injuries depleted the active roster. He should have a role as a pass-catching, change-of-pace back in Philadelphia in 2020 behind Miles Sanders and could have some appeal in deeper PPR formats depending on what the Eagles' roster looks like heading into next season.

Category: Game Recaps

Eagles running back Jordan Howard, who missed six games with a shoulder injury before playing just one snap in a Week 17 win over the Giants, did not play in the team's loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Despite being cleared for contact two weeks ago, it doesn't seem like Howard was healthy enough to contribute on offense. He will be a free agent this offseason, and it is unclear if he will be back in Philadelphia after the emergence of Miles Sanders.

Category: Game Recaps

Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught seven of his eight targets for 73 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the first round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact: With the Eagles dealing with several injuries to skill position players in the second half of the season, Goedert saw his role in the offense gradually increase. While he will still be Philadelphia's TE2 in 2020 as long as Zach Ertz is around, he could very well be a top 10 fantasy tight end.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who left Sunday's playoff matchup against the Seattle Seahawks due to a concussion, posted on social media on Monday that he was "feeling good today and will be just fine." (Source: Carson Wentz on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Playing in his first career playoff game, Wentz didn't make it out of the first quarter after a questionable helmet-to-helmet hit from Jadeveon Clowney. He attempted four passes prior to exiting, completing one of them for three yards.

DeSean Jackson is expected to resume practicing if the Eagles advance to the Divisional round of the playoffs. (Source: Tim McManus on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: First, the Eagles need to make the playoffs by beating the Giants Week 17. They would then need to take on the and defeat the 49ers or Seahawks in Philadelphia for the Wild Card round before moving on to a road game in the Divisional round. If they are able to make it that far, Jackson could return for an Eagles team that is in dire need of offensive playmakers.

Jay Ajayi released by Eagles

The Eagles have waived running back Jay Ajayi. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: AJayi lost playing time in recent weeks to Boston Scott, and this move clears the way for Jordan Howard's return. Ajayi wasn't effective during his brief stint with the Eagles this season, carrying the ball 10 times for 30 yards across three games.

Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside failed to catch either of his two targets against Washington.

Fantasy Impact: JJAW has been a massive disappointment since being handed a golden opportunity on an injury ravaged receiver corps. He failed to record a reception in Week 15, and saw just two targets. Arcega-Whiteside has always been more of a contested catch winner than a receiver who wins via separation, but his 0.87 average yards of separation in Week 15 is sub replacement level. He should not be trusted in Week 16 regardless of the health of Nelson Agholor.

Avonte Maddox racked up four solo tackles, one sack, and a forced fumble during Sunday’s 37-27 win over Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Maddox only has 36 total tackles through Week 15 and should be left on waivers in all leagues.

Alshon Jeffery underwent surgery on his Lisfranc injury on Monday. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jeffery is hoping to be back for the start of the 2020 season, though that's far from a guarantee given the nature of Lisfranc injuries. It's also not clear for which team he'll be playing in 2020 as the Eagles could move on this offseason. All of this leads to Jeffery being a very volatile commodity to be holding in dynasty leagues entering the offseason.

Eagles defensive end Derek Barnett is officially inactive for the team's matchup against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football due to an ankle injury. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Barnett has 4 1/2 sacks and two forced fumbles through 12 games this season while starting for the Eagles, and their struggling secondary will surely miss having a pass-rushing like Barnett in the lineup. Josh Sweat, Vinny Curry, and Genard Avery could see additional snaps in Barnett's absence.

Category: Injury Updates

Ronald Darby finished Sunday’s 37-31 loss to the Dolphins with three solo tackles and an interception.

Fantasy Impact: Darby has 29 tackles and two interceptions through Week 13. He can be left on waivers in most leagues.

Category: Game Recaps

Rodney McLeod ended Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks with four tackles, one sack, an interception, and a forced fumble.

Fantasy Impact: McLeod did all he could but the Eagles needed more magic to get past Seattle. McLeod has 55 total tackles through Week 12 and should be viewed as a deeper IDP target.

Category: Game Recaps

Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews caught three of his six targets for 27 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Matthews has seen plenty of opportunities since rejoining the Eagles due to injuries to Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor, but production has not yet followed.
