  • Eagles Defense A Top 12 Option Against Green Bay

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense will face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. Philadelphia has kept opposing offenses to 17 or fewer points scored in all but two games this season and averages three sacks and 1.9 turnovers per game. The Packers' offense has struggled to score this season, ranking 24th in total points scored, and is tied for the fifth-most turnovers. Green Bay has been banged up at the receiver position, but the only one they are slated to miss on Sunday is rookie Romeo Doubs (ankle). Green Bay is fighting for their playoff lives this week, so they will put up a fight, but overall the Eagles' defense is slated to have a solid fantasy performance in Week 12. They should be considered a top-12 fantasy option.

  • Eagles Defense Records Four Sacks, Forces Fumble

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense allowed 16 points, recorded four sacks, and recovered one forced fumble during the team's 17-16 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. It is only the second game that the Eagles have not forced an interception so far this season. Philadelphia's defense had been gashed on the ground as of late but held Jonathan Taylor in check after the opening drive, where he scored the Colts' lone touchdown. For fantasy purposes, it was not a top-five performance, but Philadelphia has recorded 16 sacks over the past month and has a total of seven turnovers during that time. They will host the struggling Green Bay Packers offense next week and should be considered a top-tier fantasy option.

  • Eagles Defense A Top-Five Fantasy Option In Week 11

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense will go on the road to face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 11. The Eagles suffered their first loss of the season last week, as their defense gave up the second-most points of the season. However, they still generated three sacks and two turnovers and have a great matchup against the Colts this week. Indianapolis ranks 28th in scoring and has turned the ball over 18 times, the second-most in the league. Philadelphia will need to commit to stopping the run better than they have the past few weeks against Jonathan Taylor. However, they should have little trouble generating pressure on quarterback Matt Ryan and creating a few turnovers. Start the Eagles' defense with full confidence this week and consider them a top-five fantasy option.

  • Eagles Defense A Top-Tier Option Against Washington

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense will face the Washington Commanders on Monday night in Week 10. The Eagles have not given up more than 17 offensive points since Week 1 and currently average 3.3 sacks and 2.3 turnovers per game. The last time these two teams played each other, Philadelphia held the Commanders to six points, sacked quarterback Carson Wentz nine times, and recovered one of two forced fumbles. Wentz will not be playing this week, but Taylor Heinicke does not pose a greater threat to the Eagles' defense. Washington has scored only 17 points each of the past two weeks against Minnesota and Indianapolis and will struggle to score again in Week 10. Heinicke has committed one interception in all three of his games this year and has been sacked a total of six times. Philadelphia should be considered an elite fantasy option in Week 10.

  • Eagles Defense Posts Three Sacks And Two Interceptions

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense surrendered 17 points, recorded three sacks, and intercepted quarterback Davis Mills twice during the team's 29-17 victory over the Houston Texans. Javon Hargrave recorded all three sacks during the contest, while C.J. Gardner-Johnson caught his league-leading fifth interception of the season. It was not the elite fantasy performance many were hoping for, but Philadelphia had a lot of trouble stopping the run with rookie Jordan Davis (ankle) out. However, this was the third game in a row Philadelphia has generated two or more turnovers, and they will face the Washington Commanders next week, who have turned the ball over 10 times so far this year. Fantasy managers can continue to ride the Eagles' defense for weeks to come, with the Indianapolis Colts and a struggling Green Bay offense coming up after Washington next week.

  • Eagles Defense An Elite Fantasy Option Against Houston

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense will face the Davis Mills-led Houston Texans on Thursday night. The Eagles have been on fire since Week 2, allowing an average of 12.5 points scored per game, 3.7 sacks, and 2.5 turnovers. Houston's offense is ranked dead last in total points scored this season, will be missing No. 2 wide receiver Nico Collins and may be without top target Brandin Cooks (wrist/personal issue). Philadelphia's defense should have little trouble generating pressure, and if Mills is without his top two targets, it could be a rough night for the Texans. The Eagles defense is ranked No. 1 by many fantasy experts this week and needs to be in every fantasy lineup.

  • Eagles Defense Generates Two Turnovers And Six Sacks In Week 8

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense allowed 13 points, recorded six sacks, forced two fumbles, recovered one and intercepted quarterback Kenny Pickett once during the team's 35-13 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. In short, Philadelphia had a field day against the Steelers. While there were more than a few chunk plays and a few mistakes in the secondary that resulted in pass-interference penalties, the Eagles had no issues holding the run game in check and forced Pickett to try and beat them. Philadelphia has six interceptions and 11 sacks over their past four games. With a road matchup against a less-than-stellar Houston Texans up next on Thursday, the Eagles defense will be a top-tier fantasy option once again in Week 9.

  • Eagles Defense A Top-Tier Fantasy Option In Week 8

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense will face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8. Philadelphia has yielded 17 points or fewer over their past five games, has the highest turnover differential in the NFL, and is tied for 10th in sacks. Pittsburgh's offense has scored the 4th-fewest points through seven weeks, averaging 15.3 per game. Rookie Kenny Pickett is likely to struggle against one of the most formidable defensive units against the pass in Philadelphia and could turnover the ball multiple times. Fresh off the bye, Philadelphia has no starting defenders missing this week and has just acquired pass rusher Robert Quinn from the Chicago Bears. Unless Pittsburgh scores a few touchdowns late due to garbage time, Philadelphia will finish as one of the elite fantasy options in Week 8. Fire them up with confidence this week, and be sure to hold onto them as they play Houston next Thursday night.

  • Eagles Defense Generates Three Interceptions During Week 6 Victory

    The Philadelphia Eagles' defense held the Dallas Cowboys to 17 points and intercepted quarterback Cooper Rush three times during the team's Sunday night victory. Philadelphia's defense has held opposing offenses to 17 points or fewer in five straight games. While they could not record a sack, Rush was under duress often, causing the backup to throw three interceptions. With 13 sacks and 14 turnovers through six weeks, Philadelphia's defense will be a top-tier fantasy option when they return from their bye to face Pittsburgh, Houston, and Washington. They are one of the few defenses that you should hold on your bench through their bye, if at all possible.

  • Eagles Defense A Recommended Start In Week 6

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense will face the Dallas Cowboys in Philadelphia this Sunday night. The Eagles have given up an average of 11.3 points to opposing offenses over the past four weeks, and Dallas has scored an average of 19.6 points per game this season. Dallas is not turning the ball over often, but they cannot score at a high rate with quarterback Cooper Rush under center. Philadelphia is tied for the league lead in takeaways, is tied for the fourth-most sacks, and allows the 23rd-fewest rushing yards per game. Dallas will have a tough time establishing the run game, meaning they will need to lean on Rush to try and get into scoring range. Philadelphia is a safe fantasy option since they should hold the Cowboys to a low-point total and has a chance to finish inside the top five if they can get to the quarterback enough and generate a few turnovers.

  • Eagles Defense Holds Arizona To 17 Points

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense held the Arizona Cardinals to 17 points, sacked quarterback Kyler Murray once, and recorded one interception during the team's 20-17 victory Sunday. It was the fourth-straight game the defense had yielded less than 20 points, but they did little else to have a productive day for fantasy purposes. After combining for 13 sacks over the past two weeks, Philadelphia got to the quarterback once as the Cardinals got the ball out quickly, and Murray extended plays with his legs. They will face a Dallas offense next week that threw for only 102 yards against the Rams in Week 5. If the Eagles can generate more pressure, they could easily finish as a top-12 fantasy defense in Week 6.

  • Eagles Defense A Solid Fantasy Option For Week 5

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense will travel on the road to face the Arizona Cardinals Sunday. Philadelphia has been on a roll since giving up 35 points to Detroit in Week 1, allowing just 28 total points, forcing six fumbles, recovering five, tallying four interceptions, and recording 15 sacks over the last three weeks. The matchup with Arizona should not scare fantasy managers into benching the Eagles' defense. The Cardinals are middle of the pack in terms of total points scored, passing touchdowns thrown, and total rushing production. Arizona has not committed many turnovers, but neither did Jacksonville coming into last week's game, and they turned the ball over to Philadelphia five times. The Eagles should generate more than enough pressure against Arizona's offensive line, and it should lead to enough sacks and turnovers to make Philadelphia a top-12 fantasy option in Week 5.

  • Eagles Defense A Streaming Option In Week 4

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense will face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Philadelphia this Sunday. The defense had a stellar performance against Washington last week. They held the Commanders to eight points, sacked quarterback Carson Wentz nine times, caused two fumbles, and recovered one of them. The Eagles will look to bring the pressure against second-year quarterback Trevor Lawrence while facing their former Head Coach Doug Pederson for the first time since firing the Super Bowl winner. Jacksonville has scored the seventh-most points in the league through three weeks, turning over the ball just once. However, the Jaguars have played two of the bottom five defense in the league in terms of total points allowed and have not faced a front-seven the caliber of Philadelphia's. The Eagles are a bit of a risky streaming option due to Jacksonville's recent scoring success, but they should be good for a few sacks and have the chance to cause the sophomore quarterback to turn the ball over once or twice Sunday.

  • Eagles Defense A Streaming Option In Week 3

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense will travel to Washington Sunday to face the Commanders. After allowing Detroit to score 35 points on them in Week 1, Philadelphia held Minnesota to only seven points in Week 2 last Monday. They put a ton of pressure on quarterback Kirk Cousins, forcing him to throw three interceptions, sacking him twice, and forcing him to fumble once. Perhaps even more impressive, Philadelphia defended 11 passes. Washington's offense has been hot out of the gates, with quarterback Carson Wentz throwing for 650 yards and seven touchdowns through the season's first two weeks. It is not only a tough test for the Eagles' defense but the Commanders' offense as well, as Philadelphia is easily the best defense they have faced thus far. Philadelphia's defense is a high-ceiling streaming option in Week 3 but could let up a high point total as they did in Week 1 against Detroit, making them a bit risky.

  • Eagles Defense Records Three Interceptions In Week 2

    The Philadelphia Eagles intercepted quarterback Kirk Cousins three times and recorded two sacks during the team's 24-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings Monday. Cornerback Darius Slay was glued to Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson for most of the night, coming up with two key interceptions. The Eagles' front seven did not blitz often, but they gave Cousins little time to throw, hitting him seven times and sacking him twice. Perhaps most impressive, Philadelphia recorded 11 passes defended against a tough Minnesota passing attack. It could be tough to trust the Eagles' defense against Washington next week, who have been led by quarterback Carson Wentz and his seven passing touchdowns through two games. However, with Jacksonville, Arizona, and Dallas coming up after Washington in Week 3, Philadelphia seems like a good defense to stash.

  • Eagles Defense Not A Great Fantasy Option In Week 2

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense will face the Minnesota Vikings Monday night in their home opener. Philadelphia's defense disappointed for fantasy purposes in Week 1, surrendering 35 points to the Detroit Lions. They recorded only one sack but did return an interception for a touchdown. It was not enough to make them a good fantasy option, and they have a tougher matchup this week against the Vikings. Philadelphia did a decent job against the pass but allowed 171 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. Dalvin Cook is coming off a 90-yard performance against Green Bay, so it will not get any easier to stop the run. With the game having the second-highest implied point total of 50.5 points this week, it is best to look elsewhere for a fantasy defense in Week 2.

  • Eagles Defense - Week 1 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense opens the regular season on the road against the Detroit Lions. The Eagles made multiple additions this offseason, including LB Haasan Reddick, CB James Bradberry, LB Kyzir White, S Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, rookie DT Jordan Davis, and rookie LB Nakobe Dean. The upgraded back seven should go a long way at defending the pass after allowing 28 passing touchdowns last season, which tied the New York Jets for the 12th most in the league. Going against a Lions offense led by a turnover-prone Jared Goff, Philadelphia is a sneaky good fantasy option in Week 1. The Eagles are 4-point road favorites and are going against an offense that ranked 25th in total points scored in 2021. Philadelphia is a good fantasy option to open the season and has a fairly soft opening schedule to open the
