Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. Washington. It looks like he hurt his knee in Thursday’s practice. We’ll see if it’s anything that’ll impact his 2021. Sanders’ absence leaves the Eagles’ backfield to RBs Boston Scott, Jordan Howard and Corey Clement.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday night’s finale vs. Washington. That leaves Zach Ertz back in the lead TE role. He’s seen 7 targets alongside Goedert in back-to-back games and is a decent Week 17 fantasy play.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (calf) did not practice on Wednesday. If he can't play vs. Washington on Sunday night, TE Zach Ertz would be in for a boost in targets.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert left Sunday's loss to the Cowboys in the 4th quarter with a calf injury. We'll see about his status heading into Week 17. A meaningless regular-season finale might hurt his chances of returning to action.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox (neck) is active for today's game against the Cowboys. There's some risk after Cox missed practice all week, but he's available if he's in your IDP plans.

The Eagles have ruled DE Derek Barnett out for today's game against the Cowboys after he suffered a calf injury in Friday's practice. With DE Josh Sweat also out, Vinny Curry looks like the starter opposite Brandon Graham for an upside sack matchup.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor (ankle) practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s good to go for Sunday’s game vs. the Cowboys. The rookie has seen 12 targets from QB Jalen Hurts over the past 2 weeks and has some WR4 appeal in this plus matchup.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. We'll check his status when the inactives come out around 3 p.m. ET.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. It gives him a good shot to play against the Cowboys this weekend. Reagor has tallied 12 targets from QB Jalen Hurts over the past 2 weeks but would be tough to trust in season-long fantasy lineups at less than 100%.

Just in case you were wondering, Eagles HC Doug Pederson confirmed Monday that he'll start QB Jalen Hurts next Sunday against the Cowboys. This was even more obvious than last week's "decision" after Hurts threw for 338 yards and 3 TDs and ran for another in Sunday's loss at Arizona. Hurts looks like a strong fantasy starter in Week 16 against Dallas' weak defense. No word yet from anonymous sources on how this makes Carson Wentz feel.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor injured his ankle in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Cardinals and is questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone announced Monday at his press conference that he'll start QB Gardner Minshew against the Ravens in Week 15. Minshew relieved Mike Glennon in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Titans but posted only pedestrian numbers. He completed 18 of 31 passes (58%) for 178 yards (5.7 per attempt), 1 TD and 0 INTs. Baltimore actually rates as only a slightly tougher-than-average scoring matchup for fantasy QBs on the season -- both by raw fantasy points allowed and our Strength-of-Schedule formula -- but we're certainly not chasing Minshew for Week 15 fantasy lineups. The Ravens will bring a tougher defense than the Titans did last week, especially in the 2nd half of a blowout Tennessee win.

To the surprise of no one, Eagles HC Doug Pederson announced Monday that he will stick with rookie QB Jalen Hurts as his starter for the Week 15 visit to Arizona. Hurts, of course, piloted Philadelphia to a surprising win over the Saints in Week 14. His 106 rushing yards propelled the rookie to a top-12 fantasy week at the position. That rushing upside always helps a QB, but Hurts will also present risk as a Week 15 fantasy option. Pro Football Focus graded him 36th among 37 passers for Week 14 -- and even just 7th in rushing among QBs. Hurts will face a Cardinals defense worse than the Saints unit he just beat, so he's certainly capable of another QB1 week. But keep the risk -- including that it will be just his 2nd pro start -- in mind as you make your Week 15 lineup decisions. We'll have our rankings for the week on the site Tuesday early afternoon.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is expected to start for the remainder of the season, "barring injury or disastrous play," ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports. We'll see how the rookie fares in his 1st start today. He's just a QB2 vs. a tough Saints defense but could be a QB1 option next week at Arizona and especially in Week 16 at Dallas.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson has chosen to start QB Jalen Hurts in Sunday's game against the Saints, leaving Carson Wentz to back him up, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hurts found Greg Ward in the end zone for Philadelphia's lone offensive TD in the Week 13 loss at Green Bay. He also completed just 5 of 12 passes overall and took 3 sacks in a half of work. Hurts brings more rushing upside than Wentz, but it's tough to bet on the rookie in his 1st NFL start -- especially against a Saints defense that Football Outsiders rates 2nd in overall DVOA, 2nd against the pass and 2nd against the run. We'll see what effect the switch has on Philly pass-catchers and the running game. TE Dallas Goedert has been the only usable Eagles receiver in fantasy football lately, though. The change at QB at least adds uncertainty to his target outlook. Try to avoid this offense if you can either in or on the brink of your fantasy playoffs.

The Eagles yanked Carson Wentz in the 3rd quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Packers. QB Jalen Hurts spent the rest of the game under center, throwing for 109 yards and a TD to WR Greg Ward. Of course, Hurts completed just 5 of 12 passes, took 3 sacks and also threw a pick. We’ll see whether the Eagles choose to give the rookie a start vs. New Orleans in Week 14. HC Doug Pederson was non-committal afterward, saying he'll "consider everything before anything is decided.” If Philly goes with Hurts, his rushing upside (29 yards vs. Green Bay; 1,298 yards as an Oklahoma senior) would make him an immediate option or 2-QB and superflex leagues.

Eagles CB Darius Slay (calf) is active for today's game against the Packers. He's a risky IDP option with the injury that cropped up during the practice week, but there's also opportunity upside in his coverage matchup with Packers WR Davante Adams.

Eagles CB Darius Slay (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers. He sustained the injury in Thursday's practice but still put in a limited workout Friday. HC Doug Pederson told reporters on Friday that he hoped to have Slay for the game. We'll check his status Sunday.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ankle) is expected to return for Sunday’s game against the Packers. HC Doug Pederson said Friday that he’ll “have to be smart” with how much Ertz plays. In something less than a full-time role, Ertz isn’t a viable Week 13 fantasy play.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is expected to see "increased playing time" at QB against the Seahawks on Monday night, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. QB Carson Wentz reportedly won't be on the field for at least some of those snaps, so it sounds like Hurts will be in a more traditional QB role than he's played so far this season. "It's unlikely that Hurts, the second-round Heisman finalist from Oklahoma and Alabama, will get to take an entire series," Rapoport writes. "More likely, it will be two or three plays at a time. But, based on the game plan and the week of practice, he should see his most significant snaps yet." We don't know exactly how much Hurts will end up playing, but this is obviously a knock against Wentz's Week 12 fantasy value. Despite the dream matchup vs. Seattle, we'd look elsewhere in 1-QB leagues.
