Philadelphia Eagles

NFC East

Fantasy Impact: Scott was promoted from the practice squad earlier in the week after Corey Clement was placed on injured reserve. With Darren Sproles also out, Scott could see some time returning punts or kickoffs, but he is not expected to have much of a role as the third running back behind Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders.

Fantasy Impact: Sproles is considered "week-to-week" according to head coach Doug Pederson, so his Week 6 status is not surprising. The team promoted running back Boston Scott from the practice squad earlier in the week.

Fantasy Impact: With Jackson out, look for Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor to lead the Eagles wide receiver corps Week 6 against the Vikings. Jackson was able to run this week and has an outside shot of returning for Week 7's matchup against the Cowboys.

Brandon Graham destroyed the Jets by racking up six total tackles and three sacks during the 31-6 win.

Fantasy Impact: Unfortunately, this performance was probably a product of the matchup being great for the Eagles defenders. Keep an eye on Graham as the season rolls on. This was the first time he has gotten more than five tackles in a game this season.

Orlando Scandrick racked up four total tackles (three solo), two sacks, a touchdown, and two forced fumbles during Sunday’s 31-6 win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Scandrick should be watched as the season rolls on but kept on waivers for now. He could be looking at a lot of playing time for an Eagles’ secondary that is been very thin of healthy players.

Nathan Gerry finished Sunday’s 31-6 win over the Jets with one tackle and an interception returned for a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Gerry has six total tackles and two interceptions through the first five weeks of the season. He can be left on waivers in all leagues.

Eagles kicker Jake Elliott made a short field goal attempt and connected on all four of his extra point tries in Sunday's win over the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: While he has not had a ton of work, Elliott is perfect on the season through five weeks, making all five of his field goal attempts and all 14 of his extra point tries.

The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST sacked Jets quarterback Luke Falk 10 times, forced three turnovers, and scored two defensive touchdowns in Sunday's win over the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: With the offense stuck in neutral for most of the day, the Philadelphia Eagles D/ST dominated a struggling Jets offense that was starting third-stringer Luke Falk at quarterback. The Eagles defense returned one interception for a touchdown, forced a Falk fumble that was also returned for a touchdown, and held the Jets to just six points on the day. They will have a tougher matchup when they take on the Vikings in Minnesota in Week 6.

Eagles wide receiver Mack Hollins was unable to haul in his only target in Sunday's win over the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Hollins has seen increased playing time due to the injury to DeSean Jackson, but he has managed just 10 receptions for 125 yards over his last four games.

Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught one pass for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 5 win over the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles have been utilizing more two tight end sets with Goedert and Ertz, but Goedert has been battling a calf injury and has been used more as a blocker than a receiver recently. Over his last two games, he has just three catches for 27 yards and a touchdown.

Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor caught just one pass for 20 yards in the team's Week 5 win over the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Agholor has now caught just one pass over his last two games combined after catching 16 passes over his previous two contests. With the Eagles utilizing more two tight end sets, Agholor has been the odd man out, at least in terms of targets.

Eagles running back Miles Sanders rushed nine times for 15 yards and caught four of five targets for 49 yards in Sunday's win over the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles were inconsistent on offense in what turned out to be an easy win on Sunday, and Sanders produced more as a receiver out of the backfield than he did as a runner. Through five games, the rookie has 193 rushing yards on 54 attempts and 133 yards receiving on 10 receptions but has yet to find the end zone.

Eagles tight end Zach Ertz caught five of his seven targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Jets. The touchdown was his first of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Through five games, Ertz has caught 29 of 38 targets for 312 yards and one touchdown. He should find more space in the middle of the field as the Eagles get healthier at the wide receiver position, as defenses are keying on him right now.

Category: Game Recaps


Eagles running back Jordan Howard rushed 13 times for 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Howard is not putting up a ton of yards but has now scored five touchdowns over his last three games. He continues to split time in the Philadelphia backfield with rookie Miles Sanders, making it difficult to rely on either running back in fantasy right now.

Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery caught six of his eight targets for 52 yards in Sunday's win over the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Jeffery had a modest output on Sunday but looked healthier than he did against the Packers 10 days ago as he continues to recover from a calf injury.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz completed 17 of 29 passes for 189 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the New York Jets. He also rushed for five yards on two attempts.

Fantasy Impact: Wentz's numbers weren't necessarily pretty on Sunday, but he did not need to do much with the Eagles cruising to a win over the Jets and scoring two defensive touchdowns in the process. For the year, he has thrown for 1,152 yards, 10 touchdowns, and two interceptions in five games.

Derek Barnett racked up four total tackles, one sack, and a forced fumble during the Eagles 34-27 win over the Packers on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: In six games last season, Barnett had 15 total tackles and 2.5 sacks. He has already reached 12 total tackles and one sack through the first four games of the year. If he can stay healthy, the third-year pro is one to roster in deeper IDP leagues.

Nigel Bradham finished Thursday’s 34-27 win over the Packers with six total tackles (four solo) and an interception.

Fantasy Impact: Bradham is currently second on the team in total tackles with 21 through Week 4. If that level of play continues the rest of the season, Bradham is worth rostering in deeper IDP leagues.

Nate Sudfeld inactive Thursday

Thu, Sep 26th 6:59pm EDT
By Mike Maher

Eagles quarterback Nate Sudfeld is inactive for the team's Week 4 matchup against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football. Josh McCown will continue to serve as the backup to Carson Wentz.

Fantasy Impact: Sudfeld was active for Week 3 despite missing most of the preseason and the team's first two games with a wrist injury, but that likely had as much to do with Philadelphia being short on healthy bodies as it did with Sudfeld being ready to play. It appears that Josh McCown, who was signed out of retirement by the Eagles after Sudfeld's injury during the preseason, will continue to be the primary backup in Philadelphia.
