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 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.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts attempted just 25 passes in Sunday night's win over the Cowboys, completing 15 (60%) for 155 yards and a pair of TDs. He found A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith for the scores. Each wideout caught 5 balls for the game, with Brown tallying 67 yards and Smith 44. TE Dallas Goedert was the only other Eagle to see multiple targets, catching just 2 of his 5 for 22 yards.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown led the team with 95 yards on 5 catches in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. He accounted for 46.6% of QB Jalen Hurts' passing yardage in the contest, while drawing 28% of Hurts' passion attempts. WR DeVonta Smith followed a monster Week 3 by going quiet: 3 catches, 17 yards on 4 targets. TE Dallas Goedert finished 2nd on the team with 6 targets, catching 5 for 72 yards. Miles Sanders (2) and Kenneth Gainwell (1) accounted for the team's only other pass completions.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith led the team in targets (12), receptions (8) and receiving yards (169) in Sunday's win over the Commanders. He grabbed 1 of Jalen Hurts' 3 TD passes, leaving 1 apiece for WR A.J. Brown and TE Dallas Goedert. Brown checked in 2nd in the other 3 categories, tallying a 5-85-1 receiving line on 10 targets. Goedert managed just 3-26-1 on 4 looks in a game he left briefly with a shin issue. Smith looks like he'll reside much closer to Brown in target share than the opener in Detroit suggested.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown still led the team in targets in Week 2, but his 8 looks merely beat WR DeVonta Smith by 1 and TE Dallas Goedert by 2. Brown caught 5 balls for 69 yards in the easy win over Minnesota. Smith caught all 7 of his targets for 80 yards, while Goedert supplied 5 receptions for a team-high 82 yards. QB Jalen Hurts spread his other 10 pass attempts among 5 teammates. WR Quez Watkins caught the night's only TD pass, a 53-yarder that was 1 of his 2 receptions on 2 targets. Brown's share marked a predictable fall from the heights of Week 1, but he still garnered 25.8% target share vs. Minnesota.

If the opener laid out Philly's passing plan, then WR A.J. Brown will not have any target-volume issues. Instead, he'll be a big problem for his teammates. Brown claimed 13 targets among QB Jalen Hurts' 32 pass attempts in Sunday's win over the Lions, a 40.6% share. That's certainly not a rate we'd bet on continuing. But Brown could lose a quarter of that share and still rank among the league leaders in the category. He caught 10 balls for 155 yards, factoring in at all levels of the passing game. No other Eagle drew more than 4 targets, with TE Dallas Goedert, WR DeVonta Smith and RB Kenneth Gainwell tying for 2nd place. Goedert managed 3 catches for 60 yards. Smith didn't catch a pass. Brown will obviously remain a weekly starter for any fantasy team that drafted him. Goedert looks fine to continue using, as we'd expect at least a slight bump from his Week 1 target share of 12.5%. Smith would be better to bench at least until we see this passing picture develop a little further. Smith did, at least, play 6 more snaps than Brown and run 1 more route vs. Detroit.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith returned to practice on Sunday. He ended up missing about 10 days with a minor groin injury. Barring a setback, consider Smith's fantasy stock unaffected.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith has missed 5 consecutive practices with a groin injury. Per HC Nick Sirianni, the 2nd-year WR remains day to day.
