Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Football News 2019

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) is active for today's game against the Saints. He has been playing through "questionable" tags for weeks and is fine for IDP usage. CB Sidney Jones (hamstring) is inactive after entering the day questionable. He wouldn't have been an IDP option anyway. His absence keeps the Philly secondary weakened.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. Bennett has played through "questionable" tags for weeks and put in a full practice Friday. Expect him to be in the lineup.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) and MLB Jordan Hicks (calf) are active for today's game against Washington. Both entered the day questionable. Bennett has played through "questionable" tags for weeks and should be fine for normal IDP usage. Hicks played just two-thirds of the snaps in last week's return from the multi-week calf injury and looks risky.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) and MLB Jordan Hicks (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. Bennett has been playing through "questionable" tags for weeks and should be in for the finale as well. We'll certainly confirm his status Sunday. Hicks returned last week from 4 games down with the calf injury. He played just 66% of the snaps in that game. Then he missed Thursday's practice and spent Friday limited before the "questionable" designation. Hicks presents a lot of risk for IDP owners this week. But we'll update his status as well in case you're looking to take the plunge. We did move him down the Week 17 IDP rankings.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) is active for today's game against the Texans. He has played through questionable tags for several weeks and is fine for usual IDP usage in a high-upside matchup.

The Eagles left MLB Jordan Hicks off the final injury report after he put in full practices Thursday and Friday. Hicks started the week limited by the calf issue that cost him the past 4 games but looks ready for a full return. He'll find a Houston offense that presents a top-6 scoring matchup for fantasy LBs on the year. We've vaulted Hicks up the Week 16 IDP rankings. Elsewhere on the Philly D, DE Michael Bennett is questionable with his foot injury. He has played through questionable tags since Week 13 with the issue. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) is active for tonight's game against the Rams. He has played through multiple questionable tags and is fine to use if you waited for him in IDP lineups.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Rams. Bennett played through questionable tags each of the past 2 weeks and put in a full Friday practice this week. Expect Bennett to play Sunday night, albeit in a poor matchup for sack upside.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) is active for today's game against the Cowboys. He delivered 2 sacks in the 1st meeting with Dallas and is an upside option for IDP lineups today.

Eagles DL Michael Bennett (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He opened the practice week with a limited Wednesday workout before sitting out Wednesday and then returning to a full practice Friday. It's a strange progression, but the full-practice finish makes Bennett look likely to play. We'll check his status Sunday afternoon.

Eagles CB Ronald Darby tore his right ACL in Sunday night's loss to the Cowboys and will miss the rest of the season. That comes at a particularly bad time for the veteran corner, who's set to hit unrestricted free agency in March. We'll see what it means for his market and 2019 outlook. The Philly defense, meanwhile, loses its top cover corner from a D that was already soft vs. the pass. Look for the Eagles to present 1 of the league's top passing matchups the rest of the way. Philly was down to Avonte Maddox and Rasul Douglas leading the CBs in Week 10, with Darby going down and Jalen Mills and Sidney Jones already out. We'll see what the lineup looks like heading into Week 11.

The Eagles have ruled CB Jalen Mills out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He suffered a foot injury in the Week 8 win over the Jaguars and then didn't practice at all coming out of the bye. We'll see about his status in Week 11.

Eagles DE Derek Barnett is having season-ending shoulder surgery, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Barnett sat out Week 5 with the injury but then returned for the past 2 games. Clearly, though, it was determined he should have the issue repaired. The Barnett loss obviously hurts, but Philly runs deeper than most teams on the D-line and should be fine from a fantasy standpoint. Michael Bennett could be in line for more snaps at Barnett's right DE spot, and we could see more of rookie Josh Sweat as well.

The Eagles added CB Jalen Mills to the injury report Thursday, when a hamstring issue limited his participation. HC Doug Pederson told reporters Friday morning that he expects Mills to be fine to face Carolina on Sunday, though. That should keep Mills at his usual level of IDP consideration. His hamstring could add upside to Carolina outside WRs Devin Funchess and Torrey Smith, though.

Eagles LT Jason Peters suffered a torn biceps in Thursday night's win over the Giants. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Peters is expected to return this season but that he might miss a week or 2. Any missed time for Peters presents a potential challenge for Philly's pass protection and run game. Week 7 brings the Panthers to town, followed by a Week 8 clash with the Jaguars in London.

The Eagles have ruled DE Derek Barnett (shoulder) out for Sunday's game against the Vikings. That leaves Philly without 1 of its top-performing pass rushers, but the defense deploys a consistent rotation. We're not big on either defense in the Eagles-Vikings matchup anyway.
