Fantasy Impact: Wentz was banged up all of 2018 and looks to finally be healthy. Philadelphia will reportedly still be "smart" with him at OTAs, but he's expected to be involved in the majority of all work. In 11 games last season Wentz compiled a 21/7 TD/INT ratio.

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.

Nelson Agholor is expected to remain with the Eagles and enter 2019 with the team. (Source: Jeff McLane on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McLane notes that it would likely "take an attractive offer to pry him away," referring to Agholor. McLane adds that Agholor could decide to restructure his deal in order to move into a larger role elsewhere. Philadelphia has already added DeSean Jackson this offseason, and they could continue to address the position this offseason after watching Mike Wallace and Golden Tate hit free agency. Agholor has shown flashes, but the former first-round pick has been an inconsistent fantasy option during his career.

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.

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.

Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood carried 10 times for 33 yards and caught one pass for six yards in the team's loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: After nearly being cut in training camp and then getting buried on the depth chart during the season, Smallwood impressively fought his way back to relevance at the end of the season and into the postseason. With the Eagles likely to add another running back or two in the offseason, chances are he will have to fight his way back onto the roster again.

Eagles tight end Zach Ertz caught five passes for 50 yards in the team's loss to the New Orleans Saints in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Ertz had a historic season for the Eagles, catching 116 passes for 1,163 yards and eight touchdowns. His 116 receptions are the most ever in a season by an NFL tight end, breaking Jason Witten's previous record of 110. He should be one of the top two tight ends off the board in fantasy drafts next season, especially with rumors that Rob Gronkowski may retire.

Eagles running back Darren Sproles rushed three times for four yards and caught three passes for 21 yards in Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Sproles has been rumored to be retiring for two seasons now and has coincidentally missed large chunks of both of those seasons. He seemed to waver on retirement a few weeks ago, however, and it is possible that he returns for another season. He will likely not make a decision for a couple of months, and even if he returns it will be as a rotational, pass-catching running back for an Eagles team that likes to employ a committee approach to the position.

Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery played through cracked ribs during Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs, according to multiple reports. While he caught five passes for 63 yards in the game, he also dropped a pass late in the fourth quarter that wound up being intercepted by the Saints as the Eagles were attempting to drive down for a game-winning touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Unfortunately for Jeffery, what will be remembered most about this game is his big drop that ended up wiping out any chance that the Eagles had to come back and win this game. He had a down year in 2018, catching 65 passes for 843 yards and six touchdowns, but both he and starting quarterback Carson Wentz were rehabbing all offseason and did not play until a few weeks into the season. With a full offseason to recover and participate in training camp, Jeffery will be looking to bounce back with better numbers next season.

Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught two passes for 20 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Chicago Bears in the Wild Card Round of the NFL playoffs.

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles did not play as much 12 personnel (one running back, two tight ends) on Sunday as they have been playing over the past month, with Goedert playing just 30 snaps to 61 snaps for fellow tight end Zach Ertz. Despite playing fewer snaps and only seeing four targets, Goedert managed to deliver when it counted with a touchdown in the second-half.

Eagles running back Josh Adams rushed one time for two yards and did not catch a pass in Sunday's win over the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact: While Adams had emerged as the lead back for the Eagles towards the end of the season, he is now back behind both Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood on the depth chart. That could change any week based on head coach Doug Pederson's game plan, but, at least for now, he appears to be buried behind two running backs who are more known for their pass-catching abilities.

Mike Wallace (ankle) will not play on Sunday versus the Bears. (Source: Adam Caplan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The 32-year-old was removed from injured reserve last month but still hasn't appeared in a game. Wallace is extremely unlikely to make an impact this post-season.

Eagles running back Corey Clement went into the locker room to be evaluated for a knee injury in the first quarter Sunday's matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. (Source: Zach Berman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Clement got rolled up on by a Dallas defender as he was crouching in an awkward position on the ground after handling a bad snap from center Jason Kelce that bounced off of quarterback Carson Wentz. Clement was in obvious pain while grabbing his knee, and he went into the locker room for further evaluation after being briefly looked at by trainers on the sideline.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson announced Monday morning that starting cornerback Ronald Darby suffered a torn ACL in Sunday night’s loss to the Cowboys. His season is over. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Darby, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, finishes the season with 43 tackles and one interception in nine games. It’s a tough blow for the defending champs who came into Sunday without fellow starting cornerbacks Jalen Mills (foot) and Sidney Jones (hamstring). Things could get ugly for the already struggling Eagles secondary which still has Michael Thomas, Odell Beckham, Amari Cooper, Brandin Cooks, and DeAndre Hopkins left on schedule. Rasul Douglas, Avonte Maddox and Chandon Sullivan will compete for increased snaps in Darby’s absence.


Malcolm Jenkins collected five solo tackles and two assisted tackles in the Philadelphia Eagles' Week 7 loss to the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: Jenkins is the 40th-ranked DB to this point in the fantasy season. He's a low-end DB3.
