Fantasy Impact: Jalen Hurts is battling an ankle injury and with the Eagles having a Week 14 bye it seems as if they don't want to push things with him. Minshew isn't a fantasy option himself, but he also doesn't sink the values of DeVonta Smith or Dallas Goedert.

Fantasy Impact: As expected, Scott will suit up for Sunday's game against the Jets. He is expected to serve as the backup to Miles Sanders and mixed in as a change of pace role on Sunday. The 26-year-old has rushed for 285 yards and four touchdowns while catching nine passes for 44 yards over 12 games in 2021. Scott can be used as a flex option and is 28th among all running backs in the latest FantasyPros expert consensus rankings.

Fantasy Impact: Sanders was a full participant in practice The last two days and was removed from the injury report ahead of Sunday’s matchup against the Jets. He is expected to lead the Eagles backfield with running backs Jordan Howard (knee) ruled out and Boston Scott questionable with an illness. The Jets have been obliterated by the run this season and rank 31st in rush DVOA. Despite the plus matchup, Sanders is a low-range RB2 and 22nd among all running backs in the latest FantasyPros expert consensus rankings for Week 13.

Fantasy Impact: Meanwhile, Boston Scott (illness) is questionable. This sets up Miles Sanders to operate as the team's unquestioned lead back in a run-heavy attack. The Eagles have a Week 14 bye, which will allow Howard some additional time to rest up.

Philadelphia Eagles allowed 264 total yards and 13 points in total all while recording one sack.

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles will play the Jets in Week 13 who are putting up the fifth least amount of points per game amongst all teams. The Eagles should be considered a good streaming defense for Week 13.

Jake Elliott finished with one extra point against the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: This is nothing to look to far into, it was just a bad game for the Eagles. Elliot is typically a good kicker to play week to week, he will face the Jets in Week 13 and hopefully turn things around for fantasy managers.

J.J. Arcega-Whiteside caught his one target for 13 yards in loss to Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Arcega-Whiteside is not worth rostering in all formats unless another receiver in Eagles receiving group is unable to suit up for some reason. Arcega-Whiteside has only 1 target in each of his past two games, until that changes in a positive manner you should be able to find a better option from waivers.

Dallas Goedert caught 1 of his 3 targets for 0 yards in loss to Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Goedert had a very quiet game against the Giants. It is nothing to be overally concerned about as Goedert is a great football player and can usually give a decent fantasy performance for fantasy managers in most matchups. Hopefully Goedert can turn things around in Week 13 against the Jets defense who are allowing the 10th most fantasy points for opposing tight ends.

DeVonta Smith caught 2 of his 4 targets for 22 yards in Week 12 against the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: There was not a lot of completions in this matchup for Eagles receivers so it is not a surprise it was a quiet game for Smith. Hopefully Jalen Hurts can turn things around next week against a Jets defense allowing an average of 24 completions to opposing offenses. If Hurts can connect with Smith on his targets next week, Smith could be in for a decent fantasy performance in Week 13.

Jalen Reagor caught 2 of his 7 targets in loss to Giants for a total of 31 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact: All Eagles receivers struggled in Week 12 against the Giants, but Reagor still had 7 targets thrown his way which is a positive sign. Reagor will face the Jets in Week 13 who are allowing an average of 24 completions per game to opposing teams. Hopefully Reagor can turn those 7 targets into 7 receptions next week against a weak Jets secondary.

Kenneth Gainwell caught 3 of his 4 targets for 32 yards in Eagles loss to Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Gainwell finished the game with no rush attempts but had 4 targets. This does tell us that the Eagles like Gainwell with the receiving work which is great for PPR league formats. Gainwell will face the Jets in Week 13 so in PPR formats he could be considered a desperation flex play with some upside playing the Jets defense who typically lack defensive ability against opposing running backs.

Category: Game Recaps


Quez Watkins caught 2 of his 5 targets for 23 yards and rushed for 3 yards on one attempt.

Fantasy Impact: Watkins did not have a great game, although not many players on the Eagles did either. A good sign is 5 targets which is decent volume for an offense with a lot of great offensive options to target. Watkins will face the Jets in Week 13 who are allowing 24 passing completions on average this year to opposing offenses.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports the Jets are trading for Eagles backup QB Joe Flacco. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Zach Wilson (knee) is expected to miss 2-4 weeks, so the Jets are wisely bringing in an insurance policy here. Mike White will likely still start the team's Week 8 game against the Bengals, but Flacco could quickly usurp him if he struggles. Wilson will resume starting duties once he's healthy again.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Philadelphia Eagles have traded tight end Zach Ertz to the Arizona Cardinals for defensive back Tay Gowan and a 2022nd fifth-round pick. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ertz and the Eagles were unable to agree on a contract extension since the offseason, and he was ultimately traded to the Cardinals on Friday. He caught 4-of-6 targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 28-22 Week 6 loss to the Buccaneers. Per the NFL rules, Ertz is not allowed to play again this week and is out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. The Cardinals lost starting TE Maxx Williams (knee) with a season-ending knee injury and acquired Ertz to become the team’s primary tight end. The former Philadelphia Eagle will make his debut with Arizona in Week 7 against the Houston Texans. Dallas Goedert becomes the Eagles' top-pass catching tight end and should see an uptick in target share once activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward caught one of his two targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Ward only has two catches through the first four games of the season, but both have gone for touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Offensive linemen are not always the most noteworthy injuries for fantasy managers, but the Eagles are now down four starting offensive linemen, with only center Jason Kelce as the remaining starter left from Week 1.

The Eagles activated Landon Dickerson off the NFI list ahead of final cuts. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Dickerson, who is returning from a torn ACL at Alabama, is now eligible to practice. The biggest concerns with Dickerson is his health, but he has a chance to be a real difference maker for the Eagles offensive line if he can stay healthy.
