Eagles beat writer Jimmy Kempski believes WR Nelson Agholor will be a "significant" part of the offense in 2019. (Source: Philly Voice)

Fantasy Impact: Kempski also notes Agholor as one of the Eagles' most impressive players this offseason. While Agholor, who is entering his walk-year, was reportedly on the trade block at one point this offseason, it appears that he will indeed play a role in the crowded but talented offense. A player you can have for free at his late-round nothing ADP, Agholor is worth taking a shot on as he has a proven rapport with Carson Wentz.

Fantasy Impact: Kessler is fighting for a roster spot with the signing of Josh McCown, and is unlikely to make it with Nate Sudfeld on the roster.

Eagles rookie running back Miles Sanders started Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars and rushed five times for 31 yards in the win.

Fantasy Impact: Sanders is expected to start the season behind Jordan Howard on the depth chart, but many expect the first-year running back to gradually cut into the veteran Howard's touches and snaps as the season goes on, especially if he can find some early success.

Eagles running back Jordan Howard came off the bench during Thursday's preseason matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, rushing four times for 15 yards while not catching his only target.

Fantasy Impact: Howard split first-team reps with Miles Sanders on Thursday, with the latter getting the start and five rushes to Howard's four. Howard is expected to start the season as the lead back in Philadelphia, but he could be in line for more of a committee role with Sanders, Darren Sproles, and Corey Clement rotating into the backfield.

NFL Insider Charles Robinson is reporting that the Eagles are "excited" about WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside. (Source: Charles Robinson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: While the Eagles are loaded at pass-catcher, Arcega-Whiteside is continuing to impress the right people and could find himself in a growing role as the season progresses. With Nelson Agholor in his walk-year, the Eagles could ultimately trade the former first-rounder which would open up a significant role for the rookie, but that shouldn't come to fruition until the trade deadline.

Eagles second-year tight end Dallas Goedert played in last Thursday's preseason game against the Titans but is now expected to miss the rest of the preseason and training camp, according to reports. (Source: ProFootballTalk.com)

Fantasy Impact: Goedert is being labeled week-to-week with a calf injury but is not expected to miss any time in the regular season. The second-year tight end is expected to have a bigger role in the offense this season despite the presence of Zach Ertz.

Wide receiver Shelton Gibson was released by the Philadelphia Eagles with a waived/injured settlement. The team signed CB Sojourn Shelton to take his place on the roster. (Source: Zack Rosenblatt on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gibson was a speedster drafted by the Eagles in 2017 but never developed enough to earn a regular role on offense. He showed flashes last season and contributed on special teams but was unlikely to make the roster in 2019, especially after his ankle injury.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Eagles QB Nate Sudfeld (wrist) will be sidelined for the next six weeks with a wrist injury. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Sudfled underwent wrist surgery on Friday to repair a broken bone in his injured wrist and will miss an extended period of football activities as a result. Cody Kessler is in line to pick up Sudfeld's slack behind an oft-injured Carson Wentz, which means Philly could be in the market to ink a quarterback off the street for the time being.

Mike Kaye of NJ.com is reporting the Carson Wentz and DeSean Jackson have developed very strong chemistry early in camp. (Source: NJ.com)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson is looking like a candidate to provide huge returns on his current ADP if his chemistry with Wentz continues to develop.

Eagles cornerback Cre'von LeBlanc is going to miss several weeks with a foot sprain that he suffered in training camp, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport. He should be ready for the start of the regular season and does not require surgery.

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles wasted no time in signing free-agent cornerback Orland Scandrick in the wake of LeBlanc's injury, so there is at least some concern from there team there. He is the fifth or sixth cornerback on the Eagles but impressed while playing meaningful snaps last season due to a number of injuries.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz showed up to training camp noticeably leaner in 2019 after making some changes in his diet during the offseason according to multiple reports. Wentz added that he does not have any physical restrictions and is ready to play in the preseason. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wentz is one of the bigger questions marks coming into the 2019 fantasy season. If healthy, he is an MVP-caliber talent who should have the best supporting cast around him that he has had so far in his young career. Unfortunately, that if is a big one, as Wentz has failed to finish each of the last two seasons due to injuries.


Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby (ACL) is expected to start training camp on PUP list, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport. Rapoport adds that Darby being active for Week 1 of the regular season is still a "legit possibility," however. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Darby tore his ACL last November but chose to re-sign with the Eagles on a one-year deal in free agency. Being ready for Week 1 was always the goal, and beginning training camp on the PUP list is not be surprising for a player just seven months removed from a major knee injury. Look for updates on his status in the coming weeks.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Giants are signing Golden Tate to a four-year, $37.5 million contract. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Schefter adds the deal includes $23 million guaranteed. Tate had been linked to the Patriots recently but it's unlikely New England would've offered this big of a commitment. The 30-year-old will slide in alongside Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley as pass catchers in a post-Odell Beckham world for the Giants. It also looks like New York is sticking with Eli Manning at quarterback, which will likely cap the entire offense's fantasy upside.

The Cardinals have agreed to terms on a four-year, $36 million deal with former Eagles linebacker Jordan Hicks. The deal includes $20 million in guarantees. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: This comes just one day after Arizona agreed to terms with former Ravens star Terrell Suggs. Hicks played a full 16-game season just once (2016) in the four years he spent with the Eagles. He’s been outstanding when healthy, though, and is coming off a season in which he racked up 91 total tackles and three sacks in 12 games. He will be a big part of what looks to be an improved Cardinals defense.

According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, the Jacksonville Jaguars are signing free agent quarterback Nick Foles to a four-year deal worth $88 million. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This was to be expected after the Jaguars cleared out tons of cap space by releasing multiple players last week. Foles walks into a tough spot, as the Jaguars offensive line isn't nearly as talented as the Eagles' was and they don't currently have a 50/50 receiver on the roster. Foles has been known to throw the ball up and let his receiver win a one-on-one battle, but Dede Westbrook and D.J. Chark aren't receivers you want to do that with very often. Expect the Jaguars to address a big wide receiver or tight end in the draft to give Foles a weapon in the red zone. You should not be drafting Foles outside of 2QB leagues.

The Eagles and Patriots agreed to a deal Friday that will send defensive end Michael Bennett to New England. Philadelphia will receive a 2020 fifth round pick for Bennett and a 2020 seventh. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: According to reports in recent days, Bennett has been looking for a raise. It’s not yet known if he will be receiving that from New England. Bennett, who is coming off a nine sack season with the Eagles, could serve as a replacement for Trey Flowers who appears likely to leave New England in free agency this month.

The Eagles signed linebacker Paul Worrilow to a one-year contract extension Wednesday. (Source: Philadelphia Eagles )

Fantasy Impact: Worrilow missed all of 2018 after tearing his ACL on the first day of OTAs. He had been set to become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Eagles kicker Jake Elliott made both of his extra point tries but did not attempt a field goal in the team's 20-14 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Elliott started the season a bit shaky for the Eagles but recovered to have a strong season, missing just one field goal attempt after Week 7. He is likely to return as Philadelphia's kicker next season.

The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST allowed 20 points in a 20-14 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, intercepting one pass and recording two sacks.

Fantasy Impact: The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST played well against an explosive New Orleans offense, especially given the injuries they had coming into the game and the injuries to Rasul Douglas and Fletcher Cox during the game. While Douglas and Cox both returned, the first touchdown that the Saints scored came against Douglas's replacement in the game: Josh Hawkins, an undrafted journeyman who did not start the year with the team.

Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews caught one pass for 37 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Matthews joined the Eagles during the season and had a limited role throughout. He is scheduled to be a free agent in the offseason, and at this point, a reunion seems unlikely.
