The Eagles moved up from 15 to 12 Thursday night for Mississippi State's Fletcher Cox. The DT posted 5 sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss last season in earning 1st-team all-SEC honors. In Philly, he figures to immediately join a DT rotation that includes Cullen Jenkins, Mike Patterson, Derek Landri and Antonio Dixon. One of those guys will probably not make the regular-season roster. Cox's biggest contribution might be as a pass rusher. He, Jenkins, Trent Cole and Jason Babin will give opposing offenses fits in obvious passing situations. Cox's individual fantasy value will depend largely on his playing time. He can only help the value of the Eagles' team D, though.
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.
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.
The Eagles expect DT Fletcher Cox to be ready to play in Sunday's opener against Washington, GM Howie Roseman said during a Saturday press conference. Cox spent all of training camp and the preseason putting in limited work while making his way back from offseason foot surgery. IDP owners might want to anticipate a slower start for Cox this season, but the veteran clearly brings as much upside as any DT. Philly's team D is certainly better for having Cox on the field.
Eagles DT Fletcher Cox (calf) is active for tonight's game against the Panthers. He's a risky IDP option after a slow start and missing the past 2 weeks, though.
Eagles DT Fletcher Cox is questionable for tonight's game against the Panthers after returning to practice this week from 2 games down with a calf injury. He's certainly good enough when healthy to deliver in just about any matchup. But the calf situation paired with Cox's quiet statistical start to this year makes him not worth waiting on unless you're filling a DT-specific slot.
