Eagles DST only average for once
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Prior to a Week 7 bye, the Eagles DST piled up eight sacks against the Giants in Week 6. It had a combined six touchdowns in Weeks 3-5 and another in Week 1. It's been a must-start unit in Fantasy, and not because of where it ranks in terms of points and yards allowed.

So when it doesn't get a bunch of sacks or a touchdown, as was the case Week 8 at Arizona, it doesn't have much to fall back on. The Eagles allowed 24 points on 400 yards, going without a sack or an interception. Their only big play on the defensive side of the ball was a fumble recovery by Nate Allen late in the third quarter.

That doesn't mean you should give up on the Eagles DST in Fantasy. Clearly, it has plenty of big-play potential. But you'll want to play close attention to the matchups with it. It's a bit risky again Week 9 at Houston, but because the Texans have an occasionally mistake-prone quarterback in Ryan Fitzpatrick, you may just want to run it out there and hope for the best.

Eagles DST just keeps getting better
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After making a name for itself in Fantasy with an amazing seven touchdowns in its first five games, the Eagles DST dominated in a more traditional way in Week 6, shutting out the visiting Giants, a team that had scored 30-plus points in three consecutive games.

The Eagles allowed only 253 yards. They recorded eight sacks, including three by Connor Barwin and two by Vinny Curry, to join three teams in a tie for second in that category. Surprisingly, given how critical they were to their success in the early going, they had just one takeaway.

The touchdowns you could have just contributed to luck if you were the pessimistic sort, but a shutout, particularly against an offense of some standing, is impossible to ignore. The Eagles DST is looking like a must-start Fantasy unit. It's on bye in Week 7, but keep it in mind for Week 8 at Arizona.

DeMeco Ryans, Mychal Kendricks sit out Eagles practice Wednesday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Eagles linebackers DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks did not practice on Wednesday, according to the Philadelphia Daily News. Kendricks is nursing a calf injury that will likely keep him sidelined through the bye week. Ryans is still hopeful of playing Week 6 against the Giants.

"If there's one guy I wouldn't count out of anything, it would be DeMeco," head coach Chip Kelly said. "But we'll see how he progresses during the week."
