Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (illness) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 22, but is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Goedert will see more targets moving forward after the trade of Zach Ertz to the Arizona Cardinals. He has posted at least 50 yards in two of the last three games and has posted two touchdowns on the season. Goedert could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert will play without restrictions in Week 7 versus the Las Vegas Raiders after being activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list earlier in the week.
Huddle Up: There was some initial concern he may not be a full-go this weekend after he was limited to side work Thursday, but that doesn't appear to be an issue now. With Zach Ertz now in Arizona, the path is clear for Goedert to live up to the TE1 hype he garnered this summer. He should be considered a mid-tier TE1 with upside against the Raiders. Jack Stoll could also get some run.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Goedert is expected to be a top-flight option at the position this week against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Tyree Jackson (back) has returned to practice while on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Keep this name in your back pocket because he was a big reason the team was comfortable trading Zach Ertz. He could make a fantasy impact in the next month or so.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert received trade inquiries, but the team was never inclined to move him. They hope to work out a long-term deal with him, and minimal talks have taken place.
Huddle Up: The Zach Ertz trade opens a lane for him to become an upper-middle TE1 when he comes off the COVID-19 list.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Quez Watkins had three catches for a team-high 44 yards Thursday, Oct. 14, in Week 6.
Huddle Up: He was targeted five times, and only Zach Ertz had more. He has 16 catches for 311 yards this season and hasn't been involved every week. However, it's tough to ignore his seven targets three games ago and the second-most targets Thursday night. Pick him up as depth.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor was targeted three times but did register a reception against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: In fairness, Reagor did draw a pair of pass interference penalties that covered 95 yards, but fantasy owners don't reap the benefits of penalty yardage, and it looked as though Reagor was in position to at least catch one of them. Instead, last year's first-round pick finished a game with fewer than 10 receiving yards for the third time this season. At this point it's hard to advocate for Reagor to remain on single-year rosters outside of deeper formats.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeVonta Smith had two receptions on four targets for 31 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.
Huddle Up: The Eagles could never get their offense going with any semblance of consistency, and with Jalen Hurts completing just 12 passes there weren't many balls to go around. Smith's two receptions match his season low set back in Week 2, but coming after back-to-back seven-reception efforts let's hope this was just a blip on the radar. He should be a decent WR3 in the weeks ahead.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders carried the ball nine times for 56 yards on Thursday, Oct. 14, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also caught two passes for 10 yards.
Huddle Up: Philly's willingness to marginalize Sanders' role is baffling as the talented back has logged fewer than 10 carries in three of the last four games. It seemed to be taken to the extreme Thursday night as Sanders barely got a sniff until the second half when he broke off a couple of big runs. We'll see if the Eagles use the extra prep time for Week 7 to make some adjustments to an offense that is overly reliant on Jalen Hurts. Barring a change that leads to more opportunities, Sanders is no better than an RB3.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 12 of 26 passes for 115 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception during the team's Week 6 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Hurts also ran the ball 10 times for 44 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Huddle Up: By and large, Hurts looked terrible on Thursday night, running for his life behind poor blocking and throwing inaccurately even when given time. Despite that, Hurts called his own number on a pair of short touchdown runs and found Zach Ertz on a three-yard TD pass early on. That generated solid fantasy value for Hurts on a night where Philly's best offense was throwing deep and hoping the Buccaneers would commit a penalty. At the end of the day, though, nobody wants to know how, they just want to know who, and so far Hurts is finding ways to help fantasy teams. As such, he should remain a viable QB1 going forward.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: Zach Ertz may be back in the spotlight this weekend after a one-catch clunker last week. He had 10 grabs for 113 yards and a touchdown in the previous two games combined and would be a low-end TE1 if Goedert is out this week.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor registered three receptions for 24 yards on five targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Reagor has been very inconsistent, totaling just 11 catches for 91 yards across the past four games, and his only score came Week 1 in Atlanta. He should be reserved in all fantasy leagues until he starts producing more consistently. The Eagles host the Buccaneers in Week 6 on Thursday.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Quez Watkins registered three catches for 48 yards on three targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Watkins has proven to be a decent downfield threat for the Eagles, and he has two or more grabs in all five outings. He is a decent WR5 in deeper PPR leagues, but he is still searching for his first touchdown. Watkins has lesser appeal in Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert posted just two catches for 28 yards on three targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Goedert and Zach Ertz had been doing a decent job sharing the tight end targets lately, but Jalen Hurts wasn't looking in their direction much in this one. Both should be treated as TE2 until further notice. It's a tough matchup for the Eagles, as they host the Buccaneers Thursday in Week 6.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeVonta Smith posted seven receptions for a game-high 77 yards on eight targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Smith had a decent day for those starting him in PPR formats, and he is worth a look as a low-end WR3 in those leagues, while he has lesser appeal in standard play. The Eagles host the Buccaneers in Week 6 on Thursday.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenneth Gainwell rushed two times for 16 yards in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers and he added one catch for eight yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Gainwell had a total of just three touches to 16 total touches for Miles Sanders. That's not what fantasy managers who have stock in the rookie wanted to see. Gainwell isn't worth using in Week 6 against the Buccaneers Thursday with a quick turnaround.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders rushed 11 times for 45 yards in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers and he added five receptions for six yards on his five targets.
Huddle Up: Sanders had his most touches since 15 carries and four catches in Week 1, but he is still searching for his first touchdown of 2021. He remains more of a RB3 in most fantasy leagues at this point. The Eagles host the Buccaneers on Thursday in Week 6.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 22-of-37 passes for 198 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers and he rushed nine times for 30 yards and two touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Hurts has been putting up QB1-type fantasy numbers in recent weeks, but he did nothing through the air here. He has a tough matchup in Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a short week Thursday, so treat him more like a low-end QB1 in most leagues of 12 or more teams.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Quez Watkins (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Watkins posted a 117-yard game earlier in the season but has only 102 yards combined in the other three games. He should see a handful of targets this week but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Quez Watkins (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Watkins recorded 117 yards in Week 2 but has been held to under 50 yards in the other three games. He will see a handful of targets this week but can be avoided in most leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Quez Watkins (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 6.
Huddle Up: Watkins posted a 100-day game earlier in the season but has been held under 50 yards in the other three games. He has been targeted only 14 times in the four games and probably can be avoided even if he is active for the game.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders 'hasn't quite found his rhythm' and may be in a situation that is 'creeping closer to a timeshare (with Kenneth Gainwell) and will stay that way unless and until Sanders starts busting loose,' according to ESPN.com's Tim McManus.
Huddle Up: As McManus notes, finding a rhythm is hard when a player has had only nine carries over the past two weeks. Philadelphia running backs of seen a total of 30 touches in the last two weeks, so opportunity has been a problem. Nevertheless, Gainwell has impressed with his speed and athleticism in limited action. Sanders has played at least 60 percent of the team's offensive snaps in every game so far, so he still is in the lead role for now. Things are likely to get much better in Week 5; both backs should be considered flex options versus the Carolina Panthers.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor had just one catch for nine yards in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs while adding one run for 12 yards.
Huddle Up: Two touches and 21 total scrimmage yards isn't going to cut the mustard for fantasy managers. He needs to do much more than that to be relied upon regularly. Next up is a trip to Carolina in Week 5.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Quez Watkins was targeted seven times in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs, finishing with three grabs and 33 yards.
Huddle Up: Watkins has two or more receptions in all four games this season, but he really had just the one game with big yardage in Week 2. He is nothing more than a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 5 at Carolina.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Greg Ward Jr. posted a 15-yard touchdown on his only catch on two targets in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Ward scored a touchdown on his only touch for the second straight week, but he is still not quite worth using outside of the deepest fantasy leagues. The Eagles travel to meet the Carolina Panthers in Week 5.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert racked up five receptions, 56 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Goedert had the more productive day in the tight end battle, averaging 11.2 yards per catch with the score, while Zach Ertz (6-60-0) was not able to get into the end zone. Both can be treated as low-end TE1 or must-start TE2 options in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Eagles travel to meet the Panthers in Week 5.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeVonta Smith posted seven receptions for a career-high 122 yards on 10 targets in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Smith entered the day with 11 grabs for 115 yards, so this was easily his best performance of the season. He is still not quite a fantasy regular, but another game or two like this and he will be. He'll try to keep it cooking in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte.
