Eagles HC Nick Sirianni called WR DeVonta Smith “a number 1 WR” on Thursday. No surprise there, as Philadelphia just took Smith 10th overall. Sirianni praised Smith’s hands, competitiveness and ability to win 1 on 1s. While his 2021 usage proved inconsistent, Smith ultimately finished with a promising 103-64-916-5 line in 17 games. He's coming off the board as a high-end WR3 in early 2022 fantasy drafts.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman threw his support behind QB Jalen Hurts as the team's starter in Wednesday's end-of-season press conference. "We talk about Jalen and the growth he had, really as a first-year starter and second-year player and leading this team to the playoffs," Roseman said. "I’m tremendously impressed by his work ethic and his leadership. The last time we talked was during camp and we said we wanted to see him take the bull by the horn, and he certainly did that." Hurts completed 61.3% of his passes and averaged 7.3 yards per attempt with 16 TDs vs. 9 INTs in 2021, ranking 22nd among 31 qualifiers in QB Rating. He also led all QBs with 782 rushing yards and 10 TDs to finish 10th in fantasy points. We'll see if Philly's actions this offseason match Roseman's comments. If Hurts enters 2022 as the starter, he'll be a lower-end QB1 in fantasy drafts.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hand) put in a full practice on Friday and isn't listed on the final injury report for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bucs. It'll be his first action since breaking a bone in his left hand back in Week 16. There's a chance that the issue impacts his pass-catching ability, adding some risk to Sanders' fantasy profile. RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard will also be available for the Eagles.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hand) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He's expected back for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bucs, but we'll get another update on Sanders on Friday afternoon.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hand) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. It's an estimation since Philly only had a walkthrough, but Sanders is expected back for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bucs. RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard are not listed on the injury report.

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 HC Nick Sirianni said Monday that he's "hopeful" to have RBs Miles Sanders (hand) and Jordan Howard (stinger) for Sunday afternoon's Wild Card game vs. the Bucs. It's surprising that he even mentioned Howard considering he played through that stinger in Week 17 before missing Week 18 on the COVID list. We'll keep you updated on the Eagles backfield throughout the week.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. Dallas. In his place, Gardner Minshew will make his 2nd start of the season.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert was not activated from the COVID list and will miss Saturday night's regular-season finale vs. Dallas. He should be back for the Wild Card Round. TE Richard Rodgers was elevated from the practice squad and looks like Philly's Week 18 starter. He's in play in the 2-game DFS slate.

Eagles RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard were not activated from the COVID list and will miss Saturday night's game vs. the Cowboys. Both guys should be back for the playoffs. Philly elevated RB Jason Huntley, who will join Kenneth Gainwell in the backfield. We're expecting Gainwell to lead in touches.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hand) is out for Saturday's game vs. the Cowboys. HC Nick Sirianni said earlier this week that Sanders is expected back for the 1st round of the playoffs. RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard remain on the COVID list as of Friday morning, so rookie Kenneth Gainwell might be left as Philly's lead back on Saturday.

Eagles HC Nick Sirianni said Monday that he's hoping to get RB Miles Sanders (hand) back for the 1st round of the playoffs. In other words, he won't play in the regular-season finale. With RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard landing on the COVID list on Monday, rookie Kenneth Gainwell might be left standing as the Eagles' top RB in Saturday night's game vs. the Cowboys.

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 RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard joined a slew of teammates in testing positive for COVID on Monday. There's time for each player to return to the active roster ahead of Saturday night's game against the Cowboys. We'll see how this situation develops.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that "roughly a dozen" Eagles players tested positive for COVID on Monday, including TE Dallas Goedert, C Jason Kelce and DT Fletcher Cox. Last week's change to the league protocol gives all the players time to get back ahead of Saturday's game against the Cowboys. But the virus might also help nudge Philly coaches toward sitting these starters. The Eagles have little to gain in playoff positioning by beating Dallas in Week 18. We'll see what the team says on that front this week.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (stinger) is active for today’s game vs. Washington. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. With RB Miles Sanders (hand) out, Howard has a good chance for double-digit carries today if the injury doesn’t get in the way.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (stinger) is expected to play vs. Washington today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Howard will join Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell in the backfield. He got in 2 limited practices this week and comes with elevated risk in fantasy lineups. But if the injury doesn't get in the way, Howard should split most of the backfield work with Scott.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hand) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game vs. Washington. RB Jordan Howard (stinger) is listed as questionable after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. If Howard is able to play this weekend, he’d likely split backfield work with Boston Scott. If Howard is out, Scott becomes a strong RB2 play.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (stinger) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. It gives him a shot to play vs. Washington this weekend. We'll see what Howard does in Friday's practice and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard missed practice Wednesday with the stinger that knocked him out of Sunday's win over the Giants. HC Nick Sirianni said after practice, though, that Howard hopes to play Sunday against Washington. We'll see how he proceeds through the rest of the practice week.
