Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott is 'positioned to be the No. 2 running back' in 2020, according to Zach Berman of The Athletic, and Berman said he expects Scott to have a Darren Sproles-like role in the backfield.
Huddle Up: Scott flashed his upside late last season, piling up 151 rushing yards, 199 receiving yards and scoring four times over the final four games. Miles Sanders is the lead back in Philadelphia, but his owners may want to grab Scott as a handcuff.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders doesn't need his number of touches monitored, according to a recent statement made by running backs coach Duce Staley. 'You put him in and let him go,' Staley said.
Huddle Up: Sanders averaged 14.3 touches per game as a rookie last season, but that seems destined to increase now that he's the clear No. 1 option in the Philly backfield. Target him as a low-end RB1.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has visibly bulked up in the offseason, according to beat writer Paul Domowitch, who wrote that Wentz's biceps and chest were bigger. 'This offseason, I was really able to get after it and work out a little harder in my gym and all those things,' Wentz said. 'I haven't gained anything insane weight-wise. But I have definitely gained some weight. I feel really good with where I'm at.'
Huddle Up: Wentz could be forgotten about in the midrange QB1 area, which would give him probably the most upside since his breakthrough season in 2017.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, July 28.
Huddle Up: The move was widely expected but comes on the same day WR Marquise Goodwin opted out of the 2020 season. TE Zach Ertz will continue to be the No. 1 option in the passing game, while rookie WR Jalen Reagor and veteran DeSean Jackson will both see plenty of work.
Posted 7/26/2020 2:45 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside should 'be able to focus on the X position' this season and could start if WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) is not ready for the start of the year, according to Jimmy Kempski of
Huddle Up: Arcega-Whiteside has the size to fill Jeffery's role, but he did next to nothing as a rookie, and the Eagles spent a first-round pick on receiver Jalen Reagor. Arcega-Whiteside has a pathway to playing time, but he remains a late-round lottery ticket for fantasy purposes.
Posted 7/20/2020 3:01 pm UTC
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor agreed to a four-year, $13.3 million deal Monday, July 20. The deal includes a fifth-year option.
Huddle Up: Reagor joins an aging receiving corps that has been injury riddled. He'll be a WR4 option with some upside.
Posted 7/18/2020 4:57 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor is expected to take his team physical Monday, July 20, in Philadelphia, according to a source, and sign his rookie contract.
Huddle Up: Reagor, Philly's first-round pick, could have some opportunity in his first season, particularly if veterans Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson continue to battle injuries. He's a WR4/5 with upside.
Posted 7/18/2020 1:54 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz leads all tight ends with 291 targets over the past two seasons.
Huddle Up: While George Kittle and Travis Kelce should be the first two tight ends off the board, Ertz's heavy workload gives him a high floor and makes him an easy choice as the No. 3 fantasy option at the position.
Posted 7/14/2020 7:39 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) 'is almost certain to start training camp' on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to Jimmy Kempski of Kempski also notes it's still possible, but unlikely, Jeffery is traded.
Huddle Up: Jeffery is coming off his worst season since his 2012 rookie campaign with the Chicago Bears. He caught 43 of 73 targets for 490 yards and four touchdowns across 10 games and suffered a Lisfranc injury in Week 14. He won't be an option ahead of the late rounds as a WR6/7.
Posted 7/10/2020 10:31 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has been fined an undisclosed amount by the team for conduct detrimental to the team. The team said they intend to keep Jackson on the roster.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players may want to keep an eye on the situation to see if anything changes with Jackson. He is expected to be one of the starting receivers for the Eagles and could be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Posted 6/30/2020 1:10 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders recorded 25 touches in Week 15 and again in Week 16 last season, becoming the first Eagle to do so in back-to-back games since 2014 and the first Philadelphia rookie to do so since Steve Van Buren in 1944.
Huddle Up: Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia suggested 25-touch games will be the exception more than the rule in 2020. Frank also mentions that Brian Westbrook - who he feels is a great comparison for Sanders - didn't go over 300 touches until his fifth season and expects the second-year back to fall short of the mark as well, in part because the team is so high on Boston Scott. Nevertheless, the marriage of Sanders' talent and the offensive scheme should be enough to make him a solid first-round pick in most leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is in 'the best shape of his life,' according to Adam Caplan of the Inside the Birds podcast.
Huddle Up: While these kinds of reports are always nice to see to confirm where a player is in his return from injury, they are a dime a dozen during the offseason. Durability has always been Jackson's biggest bugaboo. If he can play 12 to 14 games this season, he will almost certainly be one of the best value picks in fantasy. The odds of him doing that is exactly why he isn't going to go until the middle or late rounds of most drafts.
Posted 6/21/2020 9:11 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor has done 'really well' during virtual meetings with receivers coach Aaron Moorehead, according to Adam Caplan of the Inside the Birds podcast. Caplan went so far as to predict Reagor will 'not only lead the Eagles receivers in receptions but also in snaps (in 2020).'
Huddle Up: Considering the injury histories/concerns of DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery and Marquise Goodwin - Philadelphia's probable top three receivers - it is highly probable Reagor makes Caplan look clairvoyant. Regardless of whether the Eagles enjoy better injury luck at receiver, the rookie figures to be highly involved as a mismatch weapon and vertical threat. Reagor should be a solid fantasy WR4 with the upside to be a high-end WR3.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert was punched during an altercation at a restaurant Friday, June 19, and was sent to the hospital as a precaution, according to a source. He did not suffer any injuries and was said to be fine after the incident.
Huddle Up: Goedert will be fine for training camp and likely will be a solid part of the passing game again in 2020. He had a breakout season last year and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.
Posted 6/16/2020 8:54 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor will learn from veteran WR DeSean Jackson in 2020, according to head coach Doug Pederson Tuesday, June 16. 'He's going to come in and he's going to learn one position and he is going to learn from DeSean Jackson, and learn everything he can,' Pederson said. 'Obviously the playbook is extensive and we just have to see what he's taken from the offseason to training camp, and then once we see his potential and his growth, then we can use him in multiple spots. 'But one of the things that all of our receivers really have the capability of doing is moving inside, whether they are an outside guy going inside or an inside guy going outside. We'll keep him at one position to start and we'll grow from there.'
Huddle Up: It seems as though Reagor will be competing with Marquise Goodwin for targets as the No. 3 receiver behind Jackson and Alshon Jeffery. The rookie will be a late-round depth option in redraft leagues, but he'll have a higher value in dynasty and keeper formats as the young gun in an aging receiving corps.
Posted 6/16/2020 7:11 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) is without a timetable for his full recovery from the Lisfranc injury that ended his 2019 campaign, but head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday, June 16, Jeffery will remain a key piece of the passing game once able to take the field. 'Alshon has done extremely well this off-season with his rehab. . . . ,' Pederson said. 'I just want him to focus on his rehab and get strong, but the second part of your question is, he's a big part of our offense, and we do plan to have him in the offense at some point. But if there's a couple games there where he's not ready, then, we're not going to put him out there and just wait for him to get healthy.'
Huddle Up: The Eagles added WR Jalen Reagor in the first round and acquired WR Marquise Goodwin in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers. Veteran WR DeSean Jackson remains as a projected starter opposite Jeffery when the receiving corps is full. Injury risk coupled with already declining production should knock Jeffery into the WR3 tier, especially with added competition for targets this year.
Posted 6/09/2020 9:56 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders is expected to carry the load in the backfield in 2020, with the team's decision to not address the position in free agency being a sign of head coach Doug Pederson getting away from his usual running back by committee approach, according to Geoff Mosher of Inside the Birds.
Huddle Up: Boston Scott is slated to be Sanders' backup, but he's fully expected to be a proper No. 2. Sanders contributed in both the running and passing games in 2019 and finished with 1,327 yards from scrimmage but just six total touchdowns. He's a mid-tier RB1 in a well-balanced offense.
Posted 6/08/2020 8:06 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is expected to be the top receiving threat this upcoming season if he is able to stay healthy, according to's Mike Kaye.
Huddle Up: Jackson dealt with injuries last season but is a deep threat in the passing game when healthy. Fantasy players should keep an eye on him during training camp because he could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he is healthy.
Posted 6/06/2020 4:20 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz lost out on 391 air yards due to dropped passes in 2019 -- second most in the league -- according to Pro Football Focus data.
Huddle Up: Wentz still threw for a career-high 4,039 yards and finished as fantasy's No. 10 QB. Look for more help from an improved WR corps to keep him among the QB1 ranks in 2020.
Posted 6/03/2020 7:32 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott has a good chance to make the final roster because of his solid play at the end of the 2019 season, in the opinion of The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane. The Eagles are expected to add another running back, but Scott could be a leading candidate for the No. 3 running back job.
Huddle Up: Scott probably will only see limited touches this season since Miles Sanders will receive most of the work and probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Posted 6/02/2020 7:11 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott could be in store for a breakthrough 2020 season, his third in the NFL, according to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia. Zangaro says Scott should be the No. 2 option behind Miles Sanders, even if the Eagles add a veteran running back late in free agency.
Huddle Up: Scott appeared in 11 games last season and ran for 245 yards and five touchdowns on 61 carries. He added 204 receiving yards while catching 24 of 26 targets. His breakout game was a three-touchdown performance against the New York Giants in Week 17 as he totaled 138 yards from scrimmage. Sanders is the clear No. 1 option in Philly and a low-end RB1 target, but Scott could be had in the later rounds as a high-upside handcuff in deeper leagues.
Posted 5/28/2020 8:10 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Greg Ward Jr. likely will have a good chance to win the slot receiver job if the rookie receivers need time to develop, in the opinion of The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.
Huddle Up: Ward was one of the top receivers for the Eagles during the last month of the season because of the injuries to the other receivers. Fantasy players should monitor the situation during training camp to see how Ward will be used in the offense. Ward probably would see a handful of targets each game if he is the slot receiver but would not be a starting option in fantasy leagues.
Posted 5/28/2020 3:44 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor is expected to be used in a 'variety of roles' - including out of the slot - and similar to the way Nelson Agholor was deployed during his breakout 2017 campaign in which he tallied 62 catches for 768 yards and eight touchdowns, according to Geoff Mosher and Adam Caplan.
Huddle Up: This in no way suggests Reagor will match Agholor's production from three years ago, but it is clear Mosher and Caplan have been led to believe the rookie will be heavily involved in the offense right away. Reagor is a worthwhile flier at the end of redrafts this summer, but his value will be much higher in rookie drafts and in dynasty formats.
Posted 5/25/2020 2:12 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz's 525 receptions are the most by a tight end in NFL history through their first seven seasons.
Huddle Up: Ertz has reached the mark by being one of the steadiest performers at the position. He has recorded at least 74 receptions and topped 800 yards in each of the last five seasons. Ertz is a top-three fantasy tight end.
Posted 5/23/2020 4:14 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson average depth of target is 17.6 yards since 2015 -- the highest figure in the league by 1.6 yards over that span.
Huddle Up: While defensive backs struggle to keep up with D-Jax, the injury bug has caught up with the 33-year-old wideout of late as he's played in only 15 games since the start of the 2018 season. Jackson only played in three games last season in returning to Philly, and the Eagles have added speed this offseason, trading for Marquise Goodwin and drafting Jalen Reagor in the first round, and that could make Jackson expendable if he's unable to stay healthy.
Posted 5/22/2020 5:37 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders is likely to get '15-to-18' touches per game, NFL insider and Eagles follower Adam Caplan said on his recent Eagles podcast.
Huddle Up: Sanders averaged 14.3 touches per contest and finished 15th among PPR backs last season. He now enters his sophomore campaign as the clear No. 1 in the Philly backfield and the expected uptick in touches would easily make him a RB1 in PPR leagues.
Posted 5/20/2020 3:55 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders told SiriusXM Radio Tuesday, May 19, he is 'absolutely' ready for a larger role in the offense. 'I believe that's why they drafted me in the first place,' Sanders said. 'It was really just a switch, honestly, that turned. All of a sudden, I was a starting running back, and I didn't start at the beginning of the season. So, I just looked at it as an opportunity, and I just attacked it.'
Huddle Up: The second-year back is poised for a much larger role in 2020, although he'll lose some touches to the combination of RBs Boston Scott (likely on third downs) and Corey Clement. While we've seen flashes of utility from both backs, neither has exactly entrenched himself in a prominent role. The offensive line needs to improve, particularly at left tackle, yet Sanders' versatility helps position him well as a fantasy breakout candidate for 2020.
Posted 5/19/2020 11:46 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor impressed outside receivers coach Malcolm Kelly during his time at TCU. 'He is one of those rare players who can do it all,' Kelly said. 'He literally can do it all. ... He has that rare combination of explosion, high-point ability - at 5-10, he can go up and high-point the ball like a 6-3 or 6-4 guy - and the ability to turn nothing into something.'
Huddle Up: Reagor projects to be the Eagles' starting slot receiver with Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson lined up on the outside in 2020. He could quickly emerge as the team's top option behind TE Zach Ertz, especially with the extensive injury history of both Jeffery and Jackson. He may not have the highest upside of the 2020 rookie class, but he could be one of the first to make a sizable impact.
Posted 5/19/2020 6:58 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nate Sudfeld is viewed as the frontrunner for the backup job over rookie QB Jalen Hurts, according to head coach Doug Pederson. 'Early on in this season ... teams are going to have to rely on their veterans. And Nate (Sudfeld) is one of those guys for us. ... I have a ton of confidence in Nate becoming our backup QB.' Pederson added Hurts will need to 'learn and pick up our system.'
Huddle Up: Neither Sudfeld nor Hurts will enter the season with fantasy value in redraft leagues, but either one could become a hot waiver commodity if starting QB Carson Wentz were to miss any amount of time. Hurts is an option in dynasty leagues in hopes of one day earning a starting role in Philly or elsewhere.
Posted 5/12/2020 8:43 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz's 97 touchdown passes through his first four NFL seasons have been topped by just eight players in league history.
Huddle Up: Wentz has thrown those 97 TDs across just 56 regular-season games. He has thrown seven interceptions in each of the last three seasons, and he threw for a career-high 4,039 yards last season. He's a mid-range QB1, even with the Eagles' thin receiving corps. The additions of first-round rookie Jalen Reagor and veteran Marquise Goodwin should help in 2020.
