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.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

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.
