The Eagles spent their 1st-round pick on Tennessee DE Derek Barnett. He joins a defense that dumped DE Connor Barwin in the offseason, but Philly still sports Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry at the position, and added Chris Long this offseason. Barnett still has a shot to start right away and should at least quickly earn a role in the rotation. He'll make for a solid dynasty IDP selection, with 2017 upside in redraft.

Eagles DE Derek Barnett (ankle) is active for today's game against the Cowboys. He entered questionable after just 1 limited practice during the week. Throw in Dallas' negative sack matchup, and Barnett doesn't make for a strong IDP play.

Eagles DE Derek Barnett (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He missed the past 2 games with the injury and managed just 1 limited practice this week. Combine that with a negative sack matchup vs. Dallas, and Barnett doesn't belong in your IDP lineup even if active.

Eagles DE Derek Barnett (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game against the Giants. If you had been waiting for him for your IDP lineup, then Josh Sweat is likely the highest-upside replacement available. Giants EDGE Markus Golden works as well, where he carries a DE designation.

Eagles DE Derek Barnett (ankle) is questionable for tonight's game against the Giants. He missed practice all week, and HC Doug Pederson said Barnett will likely be a game-time decision. If Barnett doesn't play, then Josh Sweat should see more playing time. He posted a half-sack in each of the past 2 games and 2 sacks over his past 4. Sweat has 3 sacks and 7 QB hits on the year in limited duty. He's available as a late fill-in if you've been planning to start Barnett in your IDP lineup.

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.
