The Eagles have released WR Dorial Green-Beckham, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. DGB continued to disappoint in Philly last year, mustering just 392 yards and 2 TDs on 74 targets. He reportedly struggled this spring, which was evidently the nail in his coffin. Green-Beckham's size (6'5, 237 pounds), athleticism and age (24) will land him a job elsewhere, but he's well off the redraft radar for now.
The Eagles have agreed to a 3-year, $15 million deal with WR Torrey Smith. Philly trotted out 1 of the weaker WR corps in the league last year, with no field-stretching presence. Smith will change that. He owns a career 17.0 yards-per-catch average with 25 receptions of 40+ yards across 6 seasons. Smith struggled the past 2 years in San Francisco but remains just 28 and will get much better QB play in Philadelphia. We'll see exactly how the WR depth chart shakes out with Smith, Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor and Dorial Green-Beckham.
Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, but ESPN's Adam Caplan reports that he's "more to the doubtful side to play." Matthews has been dealing with the ankle issue for a while and doesn't need to push it in the meaningless finale. His absence would leave Nelson Agholor and Dorial Green-Beckham as Philly's top 2 WRs. TE Zach Ertz would be the best bet for targets, though.
Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham (oblique) is listed as questionable for Week 15. He put in a full week of practice and should play against the Ravens on Sunday. It’s unclear whether Green-Beckham or Nelson Agholor will serve as Philly’s #2 WR, but neither is a fantasy option.
Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham (oblique) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He's on track to return for this weekend's game against the Ravens. It's unclear whether Green-Beckham or Nelson Agholor will serve as Philly's #2 WR, but neither should be in your fantasy plans.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham (oblique) won't play against the Redskins today. WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) will play and gets a plus matchup against CB Kendall Fuller in the slot.
Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham (oblique) didn’t practice all week. He’s listed as questionable but seems unlikely to play against the Redskins on Sunday. That figures to vault Nelson Agholor back into the #2 WR role. But Jordan Matthews and Zach Ertz are the only Eagles pass-catchers who should be in fantasy lineups.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson announced on Monday that WR Dorial Green-Beckham has been diagnosed with an oblique contusion. Pederson expects DGB to be available for this weekend's game against the Redskins. He'll only be a viable fantasy option if WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) sits again. Matthews is expected back at practice on Wednesday, according to Pederson.
Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Bengals. That leaves Dorial Green-Beckham as Philly’s #1 WR — and a viable WR3 in fantasy lineups. Nelson Agholor, who was a healthy scratch last week, is active today.
The Eagles aren't expecting WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) to play against the Bengals today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That'd leave Dorial Green-Beckham as Philly's #1 WR -- and a lower-end WR3 for fantasy football. Matthews' absence would likely get WR Nelson Agholor back on the active roster, but he can't be trusted in lineups.
On the same day they cut WR Chris Givens, the Eagles also parted ways with WR Rueben Randle. It's a less surprising move after the team traded for WR Dorial Green-Beckham, yet it's also worth remembering that we're talking about a 25-year-old, 6'2 former 2nd-round pick at 1 of the league's highest-value positions. Randle just signed a 1-year deal with Philly in free agency this offseason and seems close to totally squandering his chance at an NFL career. His and Givens' departures at least clear some room for fellow disappointing WRs Nelson Agholor and DGB.
The Titans on Tuesday morning traded WR Dorial Green-Beckham to the Eagles for swing O-lineman Dennis Kelly. This is the biggest statement to date against DGB's work ethic, which has been questioned and called out by Tennessee all offseason. If he finally gets his stuff together, though, he'll find a wide-open WR situation in Philly. The Eagles obviously remain unhappy with Nelson Agholor's development and couldn't have been impressed with Rueben Randle's preseason debut against the Bucs. Jordan Matthews, meanwhile, remains out with a knee bruise. Green-Beckham remains a hold in dynasty leagues, but you shouldn't be any more excited about his 2016 outlook today than you were yesterday. Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe, meanwhile, gain safety as late-round fantasy football draft picks without the spectre of DGB's talent looming.
Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham needs a strong August after a poor spring. While he reportedly showed up to training camp in better shape, he's still struggling with "inconsistency," HC Mike Mularkey said on Thursday. We keep waiting for the light bulb to flick on for DGB, who remains a tantalizing size/athleticism prospect. It doesn't sound like it's happened yet, though. It needs to happen soon if he wants to be an early-season fantasy option.
The Titans have signed WR Andre Johnson to a 2-year deal, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Johnson will go down as 1 of the best WRs of his generation, but there's not much gas left in his tank. He mustered just 41 catches, 503 yards and 4 TDs with the Colts last season. It was his 3rd straight year below 13 yards per catch. Hopefully Tennessee doesn't give him snaps at the expense of youngsters Dorial Green-Beckham, Kendall Wright, Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe.
