Eagles WR A.J. Brown hauled 10 of 15 targets for 137 receiving yards and a TD in Week 7’s victory over the Dolphins. This marks the fifth consecutive game that Brown has recorded at least 100 receiving yards, by far the longest streak of his NFL career. TE Dallas Goedert also shined on Sunday night, finishing the contest with 5 catches for 77 yards and a receiving TD. Despite being limited by a hamstring injury in practice this week, DeVonta Smith compiled 4 catches for 49 receiving yards. This trio of pass-catchers will have a tremendous opportunity to produce for fantasy managers again in Week 8 vs. a struggling Commanders secondary.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He got in just two limited practices this week but will evidently be ready for his usual role in Sunday’s night’s game vs. the Dolphins.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith (hamstring) returned to practice on Thursday and said he'll play vs. the Dolphins on Sunday night. "You ain’t gotta worry bout me. I’ll be out there," Smith said, per The Philadelphia Inquirer's Josh Tolentino. We'll keep an eye on Smith over the next couple of days, but he can stay penciled into Week 7 fantasy lineups.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't have any other details right now on the hamstring or whether Smith is in danger of missing Sunday night's game vs. the Dolphins. It's worth noting that he played a full allotment of snaps in last week's loss to the Jets. We'll update Smith's status again tomorrow.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown racked up 131 yards on 7 receptions in Sunday's loss to the Jets. He checked in just third on the team in targets (9), as QB Jalen Hurts attempted a season-high 45 passes. Brown's 7 receptions also trailed RB D'Andre Swift by 1. But his yardage nearly tripled everyone else on the team. WR DeVonta Smith ranked second with 44 yards on 5 receptions. It was Brown's fourth straight game of 127+ yards. Matchups with Miami and Washington the next two weeks hold nothing intimidating.

The Jets have ruled CB Sauce Gardner out for Sunday's game against the Eagles with a concussion. That leaves New York without its top two corners, as D.J. Reed had already been ruled out. That obviously improves the matchup for Philly WRs A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. Gardner's issue didn't show up on the injury report until he missed practice Friday and was initially listed as an illness. A Week 7 bye will help Gardner's chances of not missing further game time.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown delivered 8 receptions for a team-high 127 yards in Sunday's win over the Rams. It was his third straight game with at least that many yards. Brown didn't even lead the team in targets this time. His 8 trailed TE Dallas Goedert by one and accounted for a lower-than-usual 21% of QB Jalen Hurts' total pass attempts. But it marked the fourth time in five games that Brown tallied at least 8 targets and 7 receptions. He's on pace for 125 catches and 1,839 yards. We'll take the under on those numbers, but we'll also gladly take Brown occupying a weekly starting spot across fantasy formats. WR DeVonta Smith, meanwhile, remained well behind Brown's share. He caught just one of 5 targets in Sunday's win. Smith has drawn a 20.2% target share through five games, compared with 30.4% for Brown.

Even with WR A.J. Brown garnering 35% of Eagles targets in Sunday's win over the Commanders, WR DeVonta Smith still managed a solid outing. He drew 9 targets, tallied 7 receptions, and totaled 78 yards. Smith saw a target on 24.3% of QB Jalen Hurts' 37 pass attempts. He's now up to 22.3% target share through four games. That's down a bit from last year's 25.4%, though, and makes Smith more of a high-end WR3 than WR2.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith (hamstring, thigh) is not listed on the final injury report for Monday night's game vs. the Bucs. He was a full participant in Saturday's practice, so it looks like there's nothing to worry about here. WR Quez Watkins (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 3, leaving Olamide Zaccheaus as Philly's No. 3 WR.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith (hamstring, thigh) was limited in Thursday's practice. According to ESPN's Tim McManus, Smith was limping after last Thursday night's win over the Vikings and admitted that he had gotten banged up. Today's limited practice should have him on track to play vs. the Bucs on Monday night, but we'll keep an eye on Smith over the next few days.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown mustered just four catches for 29 scoreless yards in Thursday night's win over the Vikings. He was visibly frustrated on a night when Philly's passing game struggled to get anything done outside of two deep balls to WR DeVonta Smith. Brown had a 25-yard TD in the fourth quarter negated by a holding penalty on RB Rashaad Penny -- and then appeared to be interfered with on a potential TD on the very next play. The Eagles' passing game has looked disjointed through two weeks, but we expect it to get rolling soon. Brown remains a fantasy must-start with week-winning upside. Although there's very little separating him and Smith in terms of fantasy value at this point.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert drew just 1 target in Sunday's win over the Patriots and went catchless. Philly's limited receiving production (170 yards) primarily went to WRs A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. Brown caught 7 of 10 targets for 79 yards. Smith added a 7-47-1 line on 10 targets. RB Kenneth Gainwell was the only other Eagle to draw more than 2 looks. Goedert and the Eagles face a much softer Vikings defense in Week 2. Expect to see the Eagles TE still among our top 12 for Week 2.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith spent part of the winter rehabbing a toe injury from Super Bowl 57. He’s back to 100% and looking to appear in all 17 games for the third straight season. (So much for those concerns about his slim frame.) In 2022, Smith nearly matched A.J. Brown in target share (27% vs. 28.6%). The ‘Bama product finished as the PPR WR9, up from a WR29 finish as a rookie. Top-12 fantasy upside remains in a condensed Eagles passing game. Smith turns just 25 in November.

The Eagles and QB Jalen Hurts have agreed to a five-year contract extension, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The deal reportedly includes $255 million in total money, with $179.304 million in guarantees -- plus an extra $15 million in incentives. The pact also comes with a no-trade clause, the first the team has ever given out, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This obviously locks Hurts in as Philly's starter for the foreseeable future, which is good news for his spot in the dynasty rankings. This could also be a key move in the Lamar Jackson saga. Hurts' deal -- along with other recent second QB contracts -- seems to set the market.

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 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.
