NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that "roughly a dozen" Eagles players tested positive for COVID on Monday, including TE Dallas Goedert, C Jason Kelce and DT Fletcher Cox. Last week's change to the league protocol gives all the players time to get back ahead of Saturday's game against the Cowboys. But the virus might also help nudge Philly coaches toward sitting these starters. The Eagles have little to gain in playoff positioning by beating Dallas in Week 18. We'll see what the team says on that front this week.
The Eagles on Monday activated TE Dallas Goedert and many other players from the COVID list. The most fantasy-relevant names beyond Goedert included RBs Jordan Howard and Boston Scott, and LB Alex Singleton.
Eagles TE Dallas Goedert was not activated from the COVID list and will miss Saturday night's regular-season finale vs. Dallas. He should be back for the Wild Card Round. TE Richard Rodgers was elevated from the practice squad and looks like Philly's Week 18 starter. He's in play in the 2-game DFS slate.
Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (concussion) put in a full practice on Friday and isn't listed on the final injury report. He's been cleared to play vs. the Saints this weekend. Philadelphia' super run-heavy offense has left Goedert as a low-end TE1.
The Eagles and TE Dallas Goedert agreed to a 4-year, $59 million contract extension with $35 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. It makes Goedert the league's 3rd-highest-paid TE in terms of average annual salary. Finally freed of TE Zach Ertz, Goedert has been hamstrung by a run-heavy Eagles offense lately. We'll see whether the Eagles stick with QB Jalen Hurts in 2022 and beyond or move in a different direction. But the 26-year-old Goedert is a solid hold in dynasty leagues regardless.
Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. So he's made some progress through the protocol and has a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Saints. We'll get another update on Goedert tomorrow.
