Eagles TE Zach Ertz has been cleared to play in Sunday's Wild Card game against the Seahawks. He'll be doing so through what's been reported as a cracked rib and lacerated kidney. Ertz is clearly at risk of being limited and/or knocked out of this game, making him a shaky fantasy play. Dallas Goedert remains our top-ranked TE on the slate.
NBC Philadelphia's John Clark hears that there's "optimism" that Eagles TE Zach Ertz (kidney, rib) will play against the Seahawks on Sunday. "He has passed some very stringent tests, will need to pass some more to be cleared," Clark adds. We'll continue to keep an eye out for updates -- but we just adjusted our Wild Card Round projections for both Ertz and TE Dallas Goedert.
Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Giants. It’s a bit of a surprise after he played through the fractured rib last week. Ertz’s absence means an every-down role for TE Dallas Goedert — and likely more targets for guys like WR Greg Ward and RB Miles Sanders.
Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Cowboys. Greg Ward is the best target bet among Philly WRs in this one. TEs Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert should continue to play big roles in the passing game.
Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins. He didn't practice all week, though, so don't expect him to play. That'd leave Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and practice squad call-up Robert Davis as Philly's top 3 WRs. TEs Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert should continue to play big roles in the passing game.
Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Giants. He didn't practice all week and shouldn't be in your fantasy plans. Agholor's absence would be good news for TE Dallas Goedert.
Eagles WRs Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) are inactive for today’s game against the Seahawks. That leaves Jordan Matthews, Mack Hollins, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward as Philly’s healthy WRs. We wouldn’t trust any of them in fantasy lineups. TE Zach Ertz, TE Dallas Goedert and RB Miles Sanders could be the team’s top 3 target-getters today.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. He's now in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Patriots. That'd leave Nelson Agholor, Mack Hollins, rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and newly signed Jordan Matthews as Philly's top 4 WRs. It'd also figure to push more targets to TEs Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert.
Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (calf) is active for today’s game against the Lions. Multiple Eagles beat writers said that he didn’t look close to 100% in pre-game warmups. Goedert shouldn’t be in Week 3 fantasy lineups.
Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (calf) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, so he seems to have a better chance to play than WR Alshon Jeffery. Still, Goedert shouldn’t be in your Week 3 fantasy plans.
Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (groin) has been ruled out for this weekend's game against the Lions. He's also expected to miss next Thursday night's clash with the Packers. HC Doug Pederson didn't rule out WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) or TE Dallas Goedert (calf) on Friday morning, but they still seem like long shots. We'll get another update this afternoon.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's walkthrough. So, too, were WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) and TE Dallas Goedert (calf). Philly figures to be down to WRs Nelson Agholor, J.J. Arcega Whiteside and Mack Hollins for this weekend's game against the Lions.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson labeled WR DeSean Jackson (groin) -- along with WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) and TE Dallas Goedert (calf) -- "day to day" in a Tuesday morning radio interview. "It's day to day with these guys and we're going to continue to rehab these guys this week and see where they're at," Pederson added. "I'm not going to commit right now to that (them playing in Week 3) because I want to make sure they put in a full week of practice before we make that determination." We'll keep a close eye on the Eagles' practice reports all week.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffrey (calf), WR DeSean Jackson (groin) and TE Dallas Goedert (calf) are all questionable to return to Sunday night's game against the Falcons. TE Zach Ertz, WR Nelson Agholor and WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside are still standing. We'll update the injured guys' statuses when we know more.
Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (calf) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He hurt his calf in the preseason opener and missed the final 3 exhibitions. But Goedert was always expected to be ready for Week 1 and is obviously on track to play against the Giants on Sunday. Goedert is a big-time talent, but it's tough to see him being a reliable fantasy option behind Zach Ertz.
The Eagles announced Saturday that TE Dallas Goedert will miss the rest of the preseason after he sustained a calf injury in Thursday night's preseason opener. The injury isn't considered serious, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, and Goedert's expected to be ready for the regular season. The team has deemed him "week to week" for now. RT Lane Johnson sits in the same category with a knee issue. His status will be worth watching as well, as Week 1 draws closer.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery told MMQB's Jenny Vrentas on Thursday night that he has "a couple more visits with the doctor" before he can get back on the field. Vrentas said Jeffery nodded when asked if he was still a few weeks away from playing. The team had reportedly hoped to get him back by Week 3, but that looks like a shaky expectation right now. Jeffery's absence should leave more targets available for WRs Mike Wallace and Nelson Agholor and could help TE Dallas Goedert build his early-season red-zone role. The rookie drew an end-zone target (incomplete) in Thursday's win over the Falcons.
The Eagles used the 49th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft on South Dakota State TE Dallas Goedert. Goedert dominated in college (which you’d expect from a 2nd-rounder coming from the Missouri Valley Conference.) He posted a 92-1,293-11 line in 2016 and a 72-1,111-7 this past year. Goedert goes 6’5, 256 pounds and showed well at his Pro Day, testing in the 72nd percentile or better in the vertical, broad, 3-cone, 20-yard shuttle and bench press. He flashes dominant ball skills and is 1 of the better blockers among this year’s rookie TE crop. This isn’t an ideal landing spot, though, behind Zach Ertz. Philly uses a lot of 2-TE sets, but Goedert will struggle for enough targets to be a fantasy factor in the near term.
