The Eagles seem locked in at quarterback, running back and tight end. But while Carson Wentz, Miles Sanders and Zach Ertz should be starting Fantasy options in all leagues, wide receiver still remains a huge question mark in Philadelphia. Rookie first-round pick Jalen Reagor could be the solution, but we'll see what role Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson play — if they play at all. It's the biggest storyline to monitor with the Eagles this year.

Number to know: 24

That's the number of games missed for Philadelphia's top three receivers last season. Jeffery missed six games, Jackson missed 13 and Nelson Agholor missed five. Wentz was down to relying on a former quarterback in Ward and a rookie in JJ Arcega-Whiteside as his main receivers while trying to make a playoff push. That helped Ertz, Goedert, Sanders and Boston Scott in the passing game, but the hope is the Eagles get better production from their receiving corps this year, especially with a promising rookie in Reagor.

Biggest Question

Is Miles Sanders a No. 1 Fantasy running back?

At the time of publication, the Eagles have made no significant additions to their backfield after letting Howard leave as a free agent to Miami. That puts Sanders in a prime spot to be the lead running back in Philadelphia, which hasn't happened for a full season under coach Doug Pederson. While Scott will get touches as the backup, Sanders could be looking at a heavy workload, and he played at least 50 snaps in every game from Weeks 11-16. And over his final five games, Sanders averaged 20.4 PPR points per game, and he had 23 catches over that span. Sanders is worth drafting in early Round 2 in all leagues, and he's a breakout candidate in 2020.

One sleeper, one breakout and one bust

Reagor could end up as the best rookie receiver this season, which says a lot given the pedigree for guys like CeeDee Lamb, Jerry Jeudy, Henry Ruggs III and Justin Jefferson. But Reagor may have landed in the right spot given Philadelphia's receiving corps last season — and may look like again this year. We have no idea what's going to happen with Jeffery and Jackson this season, and Father Time isn't on their side. Reagor could be the No. 1 receiver for the Eagles, which would be exceptional given his expected Average Draft Position after Round 8. Reagor is someone to draft as a high-end No. 4 receiver who has top-20 upside in all leagues.

Despite his receiving corps falling apart, Wentz still had a standout season. He played 16 games for the first time since his rookie campaign in 2016. And he scored at least 20 Fantasy points in eight games. This year, Wentz will hopefully get a healthy Jeffery and Jackson, along with Reagor playing well in his rookie year. And with Ertz, Goedert, Sanders and Scott, he will hopefully have quality weapons around him. We saw Wentz be a dominant Fantasy quarterback in 2017 before suffering a torn ACL in Week 14, averaging 26.6 Fantasy points per game, which was No. 2 that year behind only Deshaun Watson (29.3). If he gets back to that level, Wentz would be a top five Fantasy quarterback in 2020.

I have Ertz ranked as a top-four tight end this season, but he has fallen back from Travis Kelce and George Kittle. While those guys are worth drafting in the first 15 overall picks in PPR, Ertz is more of a Round 4 selection. We already saw Ertz take a step back in his production in 2019 from his dominant season in 2018, and he could continue to slide as Goedert's role increases. If Jeffery and Jackson are healthy, and Reagor plays a prominent role, Ertz could continue to suffer, even slightly. He's still a No. 1 Fantasy tight end in all leagues, but he's no longer in the top tier for Fantasy tight ends as he was the past two seasons.
