The Broncos are re-signing LB Alex Singleton to a three-year, $18 million deal that includes $9 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's a surprising move. Singleton went undrafted in the 2015 draft class and didn't play in an NFL game until 2019. He bounced into and out of the Eagles lineup through 2020 and 2021 before they let him walk. Even last season, his playing time fluctuated throughout the season. Singleton is coming off his best pro season, though, and has been a tackle monster whenever on the field. Fortunately, we fantasy players don't have to worry about whether this is a good move for the Broncos. We can just take advantage of the tackle collection when he's on the field. So Singleton now looks better than expected for dynasty rosters. And he's a candidate for the top 24 when our 2023 IDP rankings roll out.

Broncos LB Josey Jewell is off the final injury report for Week 8. He missed the past 2 games after leaving Week 5 early with a knee injury. Jewell remained limited the 1st 2 practices this week but put in a full Friday and carries no game designation. He's fine as a low-LB2 or LB3 for fantasy football use this week and has moved up our Week 8 IDP rankings. LB Alex Singleton does not belong in IDP lineups with Jewell back. Denver also ruled EDGE Baron Browning (hip) out vs. the Jaguars.

Broncos LB Josey Jewell (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He missed last week's game after leaving Week 5 early. Jewell put in a pair of limited practices after sitting out Wednesday. We'll see about his status Sunday. If Jewell is active, Alex Singleton won't be usable in IDP lineups. DL D.J. Jones (ankle) is also questionable.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett has called LB Josey Jewell "week to week" with the knee sprain that knocked him out of Thursday night's loss to the Colts. Alex Singleton figures to fill in for Jewell while he's out. We'll see whether Jewell has a chance to play in Week 6, but "week to week" from coaches usually means a player is expected to miss at least 1 game.

Broncos LB Josey Jewell left in the 1st half of Thursday night's game against the Colts with a knee injury and was then ruled out. We'll see about the specific diagnosis and expected return timeline. Alex Singleton filled in and got full playing time when Jewell missed the 1st 2 games of the year. We'll see whether he's the guy again if Jewell misses further time, or if LB Jonas Griffith gets more snaps.

Mike Klis of 9News in Denver predicted on our podcast Friday that Broncos LB Jonas Griffith will join Josey Jewell in the starting lineup this season. Ourlads already lists Griffith in that spot on their Broncos depth chart. Klis added that he wouldn't be surprised to see Griffith stay on the field for 3rd downs -- even ahead of Jewell, who signed a 2-year, $11 million extension in March, including $6 million guaranteed. Griffith emerged to start the final 4 games of last season amid myriad LB injuries for the Broncos. That followed 2 years spent mostly on practice squads for San Francisco and Denver after Griffith went undrafted out of Indiana State. He sports enviable size (6'4, 250), though, a strong speed score and a good record of college production. As a guy likely to be available late into IDP drafts this summer, Griffith could be a season-altering sleeper if he approaches his ceiling.

The Eagles on Monday activated TE Dallas Goedert and many other players from the COVID list. The most fantasy-relevant names beyond Goedert included RBs Jordan Howard and Boston Scott, and LB Alex Singleton.

Eagles LB Alex Singleton was among a sizable group of Philly players to test positive for COVID on Monday. We'll see whether he can return to the active roster in time to face the Cowboys on Saturday night.

Eagles LB Davion Taylor left Sunday's win over the Saints in the 1st quarter with a knee injury. Alex Singleton filled in and would up playing 89% of snaps, according to Pro Football Focus. If Taylor remains out for Week 12, Singleton would be worth a waiver-wire look in many leagues. He has been an expert tackle collector when on the field (just not good enough at football to stay in the lineup).

The Eagles on Friday placed LB Nathan Gerry on IR with an ankle injury. That knocks him out for at least the next 3 games, with a Week 9 bye in the middle (and not counting as 1 of the missed weeks). That leaves more playing time available for LBs Alex Singleton and Duke Riley over the next few games. Singleton ranked 2nd among Eagles LBs in playing time at 67% last week, with Riley behind at 57%. Neither makes for a strong IDP option, but Dallas brings an upside scoring matchup this week. So both Singleton and Riley are in play for fantasy lineups.
