  • Miles Sanders Dealing With Hamstring Injury

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (hamstring) isn't practicing on Tuesday at training camp due to a hamstring injury. Sanders also missed Sunday's practice with what was being called leg soreness at the time. The 25-year-old caught both of his targets for 20 yards in the team's preseason opener against the New York Jets last Friday. It doesn't sound like his injury is very severe, so he should be considered day-to-day for now. Sanders is still Philly's lead back, but his fantasy stock is down after he failed to find the end zone in 2021 while averaging only 11.4 carries and 2.8 targets per game as the starter. Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott should continue to steal valuable touches away, making Sanders more of a high-end RB3/flex in fantasy drafts.

  • Seahawks Acquire J.J. Arcega-Whiteside From Eagles

    The Seattle Seahawks are acquiring wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside from the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday in exchange for defensive back Ugo Amadi, according to a source. Arcega-Whiteside will get a fresh start in Seattle after catching only 16 passes on 35 targets for 290 yards and one touchdown in his three seasons in Philadelphia after he was a second-round selection in 2019. Amadi will give the Philadelphia secondary some experience after playing in 47 games (12 starts) over three seasons in Seattle. Arcega-Whiteside has been attempting to transition from receiver to tight end, but it remains to be seen if the Seahawks view him as more of a tight end or wide receiver. Either way, fantasy managers can continue to ignore him.

  • DeVonta Smith Returns To Practice, Has Active Afternoon

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith (groin) returned to the practice field Sunday and immediately rediscovered his rapport with quarterback Jalen Hurts. While Smith being sidelined by a groin ailment was largely precautionary, it's a boon to see him back in action. After a breakout rookie campaign in 2021 (916 receiving yards, five touchdowns), Smith figures to factor significantly into Philly's passing game this season, even with the addition of A.J. Brown taking a slight shine off his upside. The Eagles take the field for the second week of the preseason next Sunday vs. Cleveland, although making sure Smith is healthy for a matchup with the Lions in Week 1 of the regular season remains paramount.

  • Miles Sanders, Boston Scott Out For Sunday's Practice

    Philadelphia Eagles running backs Miles Sanders (leg) and Boston Scott (concussion) were held out of practice Sunday due to respective ailments. The move seems precautionary in Sanders' case, as the team's expected lead back hauled in two receptions for 20 yards during Friday's preseason opener against the Jets. Scott has been dealing with a concussion for over a week. Kenneth Gainwell likely would step into a larger role if both players are sidelined for any period of time, although Jason Huntley led Philly with 16 carries in Week 1 of the preseason. Sanders amassed 754 yards on the ground last season, but he did not manage to find the end zone. Scott, conversely, was the red zone bell cow, racking up seven rushing scores despite receiving just 87 rushing attempts all year.

  • Miles Sanders Struggles In Passing Game

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders' production in 2022 could be restricted by his ongoing struggles in the passing game as "he continues to fight the ball at times," according to Bo Wulf of The Athletic. This is not a major surprise considering he has been held to 54 catches and 355 receiving yards over his last two seasons combined. For comparison, he caught 50 passes for 509 yards in his rookie season alone. Between Sanders' struggles and Kenneth Gainwell's promising profile as a pass-catcher, the former will likely be tasked with duties on the ground while the latter gets involved on passing downs. As a result, Sanders' fantasy production could suffer. He should be viewed as a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 heading into 2022, especially as the Eagles have even more mouths to feed.

  • Jalen Hurts To See A Couple Series In Preseason Opener

    Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said the plan is for quarterback Jalen Hurts and the starters to play one or two offensive series in the preseason opener on Friday night against the New York Jets. The Eagles will be without left tackles Jason Kelce (elbow) and Jordan Mailata (concussion), but Hurts will play anyway. Second-year receiver DeVonta Smith (groin) is unlikely to play after missing his fifth straight training camp practice on Wednesday. There remain concerns about whether Hurts can improve as a passer, but the Eagles are expected to pass more with No. 1 wideout A.J. Brown now in town, and Hurts has top-five fantasy upside at the position after finishing the 2021 season as the QB10.

  • Eagles Sign DeAndre Torrey

    The Philadelphia Eagles signed former North Texas running back Deandre Torrey after his workout on Wednesday, according to a source. Torrey will be added to a running back room in training camp that already includes Miles Sanders, Kenneth Gainwell, Boston Scott, Jason Huntley and rookie Kennedy Brooks. In his final season in college, Torrey had 1,329 scrimmage yards and 14 total touchdowns, but his size (5-foot-7, 195 pounds) likely led to him being passed up in this year's NFL draft. He'll simply hope to impress the rest of camp in order to win a spot on the team's practice squad entering the regular season.

  • DeVonta Smith Misses Fifth Straight Practice

    Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said that wide receiver DeVonta Smith (groin) remains day-to-day, but he'll miss his fifth straight training camp practice on Wednesday. Smith suffered a minor groin injury in practice late last week and is being held out as a precaution. The Eagles starters are expected to see a series or two of work in the preseason opener this Friday against the New York Jets, but it remains to be seen if Smith will play. The 23-year-old had 64 receptions for 916 yards and five touchdowns in 17 games in his rookie season, but the addition of No. 1 wideout A.J. Brown will take targets away from the second-year wideout. Still, Smith could make plenty of noise if the Eagles devote more attention to their passing game and quarterback Jalen Hurts takes a step forward as a passer. Smith should be considered a WR3 with upside in fantasy football drafts.

  • DeVonta Smith Day-To-Day With Groin Injury

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith (groin) sat out practice last Thursday and has now been described as day-to-day by head coach Nick Sirianni. Smith had a fantastic rookie season, finishing with 64 receptions for 916 yards and five touchdowns. Smith's stock took a hit when the team traded for A.J. Brown, but he still projects to be very involved. Smith was seen working on the sideline but did not participate in practice on Wednesday. Smith will likely be more volatile for fantasy this season now that Brown is the alpha in the offense. He'll compete with Brown and tight end Dallas Goedert for targets but will still be a top-36 option and could finish inside the top 24 if the overall passing volume goes up for the Eagles.

  • Jalen Hurts To Receive First Preseason Action

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts led his team to the playoffs last year and is expected to take a big leap in 2022. Hurts possesses exceptional athleticism, which makes him dangerous as a dual-threat quarterback, but he has received a lot of criticism regarding his skill set as a passer. Hurts received an exciting new weapon this offseason when the Eagles traded for wide receiver A.J. Brown. Hurts, along with the rest of the starters, is expected to play one or two series in Friday's preseason opener, according to head coach Nick Sirianni. Hurts is locked in as a top-12 option for fantasy football and has top-five upside because of his rushing ability, especially if he improves as a passer.

  • Jalen Reagor Showing Consistency In Training Camp

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor continues to stack good days at training camp in what has definitely been his most consistent camp as a professional. At the moment, he looks too good to consider releasing, in the opinion of The Athletic's Bo Wulf, although a trade remains on the table. The former first-round pick has been a disappointment through his two NFL seasons, compiling 64 catches (111 targets) for 695 yards and three touchdowns in 28 games (24 starts). The 23-year-old will probably only be fantasy relevant if he's traded to a team that gives him a realistic chance to start. As things stand now in Philly, he's behind the likes of A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins and Zach Pascal.

  • Zach Pascal Starting To Make Some Noise

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Zach Pascal missed the first week-plus of training camp with food poisoning and has been slowly acclimating since, but Monday was his best day by a wide margin. He showcased nice route-running and dominated a portion of seven-on-seven drills with a one-handed catch. Pascal has yet to make much of an impact in team drills, though, and he's still trying to get on the same page as quarterback Jalen Hurts. Unfortunately for Pascal, he's currently fourth on the Eagles depth chart behind A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins, who had a productive day in team drills on Monday with a couple of nice catches. Pascal can be passed over on draft day in most leagues to begin the 2022 season.

  • Jason Kelce Undergoes Surgery, Expected To Be Ready For Week 1

    Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce (elbow) underwent elbow surgery but is expected to be ready for Week 1. The surgery was described as a minor scope to clean out his elbow, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. There's still a chance that Kelce could miss a game or two to open the regular season, but the team chose to get it done now so that he won't be dealing with it during the season. The 34-year-old remains one of the best centers in the league on an offensive line that is one of the most talented units in the NFL. This could be Kelce's final season of professional football after he considered retirement in the offseason.

  • Eagles' Miles Sanders out to get 'respect that I finally deserve'

    Amid durability concerns and a rookie contract expiring after the season, Sanders has a lot to prove in 2022.

  • Boston Scott Dealing With A Concussion

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott (concussion) didn't practice on Saturday. The 27-year-old suffered the injury on Thursday after colliding with a teammate. However, he's not expected to be out long. Scott has been a relatively reliable performer for the team throughout his four years in the league, all in Philly, compiling 992 yards and 13 touchdowns off 228 carries. He's also added 62 catches for 449 yards and another touchdown. Nevertheless, although Scott won't be the primary option out of the backfield this season, he always seems to work his way into the picture. Considering Miles Sanders hasn't stayed healthy over the last two seasons, Scott has streaming potential in all fantasy formats.

  • DeVonta Smith Dealing With Groin Injury

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith (groin) sat out of training camp practice on Thursday due to a groin injury. The injury was reported as minor, though, so Smith may be able to return to practice in short order. Smith played in 17 games in his rookie season in 2021, catching 64 of his 104 targets for 916 yards and five touchdowns. There were questions concerning his durability at the next level because of his smallish frame (6-foot, 170 pounds), but that wasn't an issue in his first NFL season. The Eagles added No. 1 receiver A.J. Brown this offseason, which will take valuable targets away, especially if Philly remains a run-heavy offense. A lot will also depend on whether quarterback Jalen Hurts takes a step forward as a passer. Smith is a WR3 with upside in Year 2.

  • A.J. Brown The Primary Target During Camp

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown has been "the focal point of the offense" during training camp. The Titans traded the 25-year-old during the 2022 NFL Draft after he spent his first three seasons in Tennessee. During that time, Brown was one of the league's most prominent wideouts, compiling 185 catches for 2,995 yards and 24 touchdowns. It appears he's quickly establishing a rapport with Jalen Hurts, which should ultimately benefit both men from a fantasy standpoint throughout the year.

  • Richard Rodgers Removed From PUP List

    Philadelphia Eagles tight end Richard Rodgers (undisclosed) was activated from the PUP list on Wednesday. The 30-year-old has bounced around the league since being drafted in 2014, accumulating 147 catches for 1,529 yards and 15 touchdowns during that span, including making eight end zone trips in 2015 with the Packers. With Dallas Goedert maintaining a firm grasp on the top spot on the depth chart, he will compete with Jack Stoll, Grant Calcaterra, Noah Togiai, and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside for snaps this season. Nevertheless, although Rodgers likely won't see much interest in fantasy drafts heading into Week 1, there's a slight chance he could earn some work if Goedert misses time in 2022-23.
