  • 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.

  • Miles Sanders Could Have A Monster Year

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders is the projected starter, with Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott slated for playing time as well in 2022. Sanders is in a contract year and will be running behind one of the best offensive lines in the league, so the opportunity is there for him to have a monster season. However, injuries have kept Sanders from reaching his full potential so far in his career after he finished last year with 754 rushing yards and zero touchdowns in 12 games. Ideally, the Eagles would like Sanders to take the lead role and run with it. But if he gets injured or isn't performing at a high level, Gainwell could move into more of a featured role. Despite working with the second-team offense in training camp the other day, Sanders remains the No. 1 back, and he could be a bargain in fantasy drafts as a low-end RB2/high-end RB3.

  • Coach Nick Sirianni Calls Miles Sanders "The Guy"

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders has been receiving a lot of negative news as of late, which began when Sanders himself told fantasy managers not to draft him. This seemingly prompted head coach Nick Sirianni to defend his player. When speaking to the media before practice, Sirianni clarified the report about Sanders working with the second-team offense, stating "It just so happened to be the way the numbers worked a little bit. But Miles was in with the ones as well and Miles is our guy. There is no secret. Miles is our guy, and we like to rotate our backs. But he's the guy." While it will be difficult for Sanders to overcome the impact of the recent reports, he would possess top-30 RB value if he is indeed the lead back for the Eagles run-heavy offense. However, he will need more goal-line opportunities after finishing with zero touchdowns in 2021.

  • Miles Sanders Still The Eagles' Starter

    Despite seeing virtually all his practice time with the second-team offense at training camp on Friday, Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders "is our guy," according to head coach Nick Sirianni. Sanders is the 12th leading running back in the NFL over the last three years with 2,439 yards, and his 5.1 yards-per-carry average is second-highest behind Jonathan Taylor. Sirianni said the team rotates their backs to make sure everyone stays in the rotation. Kenneth Gainwell was working with the first team on Friday. Sanders had 912 scrimmage yards on 163 touches in 12 games last year, but he failed to find the end zone, and the Eagles will continue to mix in Gainwell and Boston Scott. Sanders should remain the Eagles' primary backfield option in 2022, and he'll be a low-end RB2.

  • Jalen Reagor Battling For Roster Spot

    Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said that wide receiver Jalen Reagor "is battling for a spot" at training camp this summer. Reagor has been working with the second-team offense in training camp practices so far after being a first-round pick in 2020. The 23-year-old hasn't done much to justify a roster spot in his first two seasons, catching only 64 of 111 targets for 695 yards and three touchdowns in 28 games (24 starts). He got bumped even further down the depth chart this offseason when the Eagles traded for No. 1 wideout A.J. Brown. The Eagles also have DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, Zach Pascal and Greg Ward, among others, at the position. As of right now, Reagor is off the fantasy radar heading into the 2022 season.

  • Kenneth Gainwell Works With First-Team Offense

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell was the first-team running back in training camp practice on Friday, with Miles Sanders working with the second team. In addition to using him as a runner, the Eagles had Gainwell split out wide at times. Gainwell, a fifth-round pick last year, finished his rookie season with 68 carries for 291 yards and five touchdowns, adding 33 receptions (50 targets) for 253 yards and another TD. He saw most of his work on passing downs but was very efficient on the ground as well behind Philly's excellent offensive line. The Eagles don't seem to view Sanders, who didn't score at all in 2021, as a true No. 1 back, so it's possible that Gainwell could become the team's primary back. Given how well the Eagles ran the ball last year down the stretch, Gainwell is gaining sleeper status in fantasy.

  • Miles Sanders Working With Second-Team Offense

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders is getting carries with the second-team offense in training camp practice on Friday. Perhaps this is exactly why Sanders warned fantasy managers not to draft him this year. He was limited to just 12 games in 2021 due to injuries after he produced 1,327 scrimmage yards in his rookie season. The 25-year-old was efficient when he touched the ball last year, but his usage was inconsistent and he failed to find the end zone. It sounds like the Eagles will continue rotating backs alongside Sanders with Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell. On top of it, quarterback Jalen Hurts is one of the best rushing QBs in the league. Using an RB2 selection on Sanders is a risky proposition.

  • Eagles Confident In Jalen Hurts

    The Philadelphia Eagles are very confident in quarterback Jalen Hurts despite reports this spring that he struggled in offseason practices. The Eagles believe he's progressing as he heads into his second season as the full-time starting QB. Hurts was healthy during organized team activities after having surgery on his left ankle in the offseason, so he doesn't have any physical limitations this summer. Philadelphia traded for receiver A.J. Brown on draft day as well, so Hurts will have added weaponry in the passing attack in his third NFL season. The Eagles will no doubt try to remain successful on the ground in 2022, but there's also a good chance they'll pass more. Because of his rushing ability to boot, Hurts is an easy top-10 fantasy QB.

  • Brandon Graham Wants To Play Beyond 2022

    Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham said that the 2022 campaign will not be his last season and that he wants to play beyond this year. Graham tore his Achilles in 2021 in Week 2 and missed the rest of the year, but he's back to 100 percent health and is ready for the 2022 season. The 34-year-old veteran pass-rusher made his first Pro Bowl in 2020 by notching 46 tackles (35 solo), eight sacks, 13 tackles for loss, 16 QB hits, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 16 starts. His healthy return to Philly's defensive line will be a big boost this year.
