The Eagles promoted Brian Johnson to OC. The 36-year-old has spent the past 2 seasons as Philly's QB coach, helping QB Jalen Hurts develop into 1 of the game's best. While this will be Johnson's first NFL OC gig, he does have 4 years of OC experience at the college level (2012-2013 at Utah, 2017 at Houston and 2020 at Florida). With Johnson's promotion and HC Nick Sirianni back, there should be plenty of continuity for the Eagles' offense in 2023, despite the loss of OC Shane Steichen.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown roped 3 of 6 targets for 22 yards in Saturday's Divisional Round win vs. the Giants. Teammate WR DeVonta Smith led the team in receiving in this contest, corraling 6 of 10 targets for 61 yards and 1 TD. TE Dallas Goedert also found the end zone in addition to 5 receptions and 58 yards of his own. QB Jalen Hurts was extremely efficient as a passer in this contest, but the game plan was considerably more focused on the rushing attack. Fantasy managers who roster Brown in playoff contests will hope for better luck next week.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith hauled in 9 of 13 targets for 115 yards in Week 17's loss vs. the Saints. Just behind Smith's team-leading output in the box score is teammate WR A.J. Brown, who managed to corral 4 of 9 targets for 97 yards and a TD. TE Dallas Goedert had a quiet effort with 3 catches and 45 yards of his own. Smith and Goedert are the lone fantasy bright spots from the Eagles in a rather disappointing game overall. Hopefully the Eagles will have QB Jalen Hurts back under center in Week 18 vs. the Giants.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown (knee) practiced fully on Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation in advance of Week 17 vs. the Saints. Brown has been an elite fantasy option all season. Without QB Jalen Hurts last week vs. the Cowboys, he logged 103 receiving yards with 6 receptions on 8 targets from QB Gardner Minshew. There's no reason to believe Brown will slow down on Sunday. Fire him up with confidence in your lineups.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown (knee/rest) logged limited participation at practice again on Thursday. It's clear the Eagles are being cautious with Brown based on his injury designation. We'll have a better idea tomorrow as to whether or not he'll get the green light to play in Week 17 vs. the Saints.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown (knee) is listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's practice report. It's too soon to tell how this will affect his status for Week 17 vs. the Saints. Track this storyline as the week unfolds.

Eagles QB Gardner Minshew racked up 355 yards and 2 TDs in Saturday's loss at Dallas. Both of his TDs went to WR DeVonta Smith, who led the team with 12 targets, 8 catches and 113 yards. WR A.J. Brown added 6-103 receiving on 8 targets. RB Kenneth Gainwell (4-41) and TE Dallas Goedert (3-67) were the other Eagles with multiple catches. Minshew will be worth a look for Week 17 fantasy football lineups in a neutral scoring matchup with the Saints, if QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) remains out.

Eagles HC Nick Sirianni isn't ready to rule out QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) for Saturday's game vs. the Cowboys. "There’s a chance he could play this week," Sirianni said. "He’s one of the toughest guys I know. His body is not like yours or mine. He heals fast. I will not rule him out. I will not put a timetable on him. We’ll see what happens." We're still not expecting Hurts to play this weekend. And neither are the oddsmakers, considering the Eagles are 5.5-point underdogs as of Tuesday afternoon. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation, but Hurts owners should be lining up an alternative for Week 16.

WRs A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith dominated Eagles receiving in Sunday's narrow win over the Bears. Brown led the team in targets (16), receptions (9) and yards (181). Smith added a 5-126 line on 8 targets. WR Quez Watkins was the only other Eagle to exceed 2 looks, catching 4 of his 6 for a mere 6 yards.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (shoulder) was not activated on Saturday afternoon and won't play vs. the Bears tomorrow. He returned to practice this week and should tentatively be expected to return for Week 16. WRs A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith should continue to dominate targets against Chicago.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith led the team in targets (8) and receptions (5) in Sunday's win over the Giants. He generated 64 yards and a TD, scoring from 41 yards out on a 4th-down play in the 1st half. WR A.J. Brown trailed him with a 4-70-1 line on 6 looks, staging QB Jalen Hurts' only other scoring throw. Philly gets a high-ceiling matchup with a bad Bears defense in Week 15.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown caught 8 balls for 119 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's beatdown of the team that traded him in April. Brown led the team with 10 targets, notching scores from 40 and 29 yards out. His longer TD came a play after Brown appeared to score from the same distance but just missed getting a 2nd foot down inbounds. WR DeVonta Smith added 5-102-1 receiving, averaging 20.4 yards per catch. Philly's WRs face another soft secondary in their Week 14 matchup with the Giants.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith led the team in targets (9), receptions (6) and receiving yards (78) in Sunday's win over the Colts. WR A.J. Brown followed not far behind with 5 catches for 60 yards among 7 targets. No other Eagle exceeded 2 targets in the 1st game since TE Dallas Goedert (shoulder) landed on IR. WR Quez Watkins caught the team's only TD pass among 2 catches for 31 yards.

Eagles WRs A.J. Brown (ankle) and DeVonta Smith (knee) are off the final Week 11 injury report. Both guys were limited on Wednesday and Thursday but put in full practices on Friday. They should be ready for their usual roles vs. the Colts this weekend.

Eagles WRs A.J. Brown (ankle) and DeVonta Smith (knee) remained limited in Thursday's practice. Neither guys appears in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Colts, but check back tomorrow for Philly's final injury report.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He tweaked that ankle in Monday night's loss to Washington but was able he return. We'll keep an eye on Brown over the next few days, but he should be ready for this weekend's game vs. the Colts. WR DeVonta Smith (knee) was also limited on Wednesday.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown scored for the 3rd straight game in Thursday’s win over Houston. He gained several yards of separation on a beautiful corner route in the end zone. The former Titan added just 4 grabs for 59 yards. But it’s worth noting that Jalen Hurts attempted only 27 passes, while Brown’s target share wasn’t exactly minuscule at 22.2%. On pace for over 1,500 yards, Brown’s status as a fantasy WR1 remains firm.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown racked up 156 yards and 3 TDs on 6 catches in Sunday's 35-13 beatdown of the Steelers. His 11 targets led the team but put Brown just 3 ahead of WR DeVonta Smith, who caught 5 passes for 23 yards. TE Dallas Goedert added 6-64 receiving on 6 looks. No other Eagle topped 2 targets. Philly heads to Houston for another positive matchup Thursday night.
