Player Outlook

Things just continue to get worse for Josh Adams this offseason, and he's not someone to covet in most leagues. First, the Eagles added Jordan Howard via trade from Chicago, and then Philadelphia selected rookie Miles Sanders in the second round of the NFL Draft. It was also reported in April that Adams is facing a six-month recovery from shoulder surgery. We'll see if Adams is healthy in time for the start of training camp, but Adams will have limited Fantasy value this season in a secondary role -- if he makes the final roster. Adams is not worth drafting in most leagues.

Player News
  • Eagles' Josh Adams: Back practicing Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Adams (shoulder) participated in OTAs on Tuesday, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Adams underwent surgery on the labrum in his shoulder in January and was originally given a recovery timetable of six months. With the end of that timetable approaching, Adams is officially back on the practice field in some capacity. A return to full strength can't come soon enough for Adams, as he'll have to fight hard for a spot on the Eagles' 53-man roster with the team currently boasting a loaded backfield.

  • Eagles' Josh Adams: Needs to compete for roster spot
    By RotoWire Staff

    Adams (shoulder) isn't a lock for the 53-man roster, Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Facing a six-month timeline in his recovery from January surgery, Adams could be stashed on the PUP list if the Eagles don't want to lose him but also don't have a job for him on the 53-man roster. The offseason additions of Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders leave the team with a crowded backfield, forcing Adams, Corey Clement (knee), Wendell Smallwood, Boston Scott and Donnel Pumphrey to compete for one or two spots. Clement is the safest bet to secure a job, while Scott and Pumphrey are the longshots. Adams lands somewhere in the middle -- along with Smallwood -- despite making five starts as an undrafted rookie last season.

  • Eagles' Josh Adams: Recovering from shoulder surgery
    By RotoWire Staff

    Adams is facing a six-month recovery timeline from January surgery on the labrum in his shoulder, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports. The timeline rules Adams out for the offseason program and raises doubt about his availability for the start of training camp. He enjoyed a brief stretch as the Eagles' lead back after catching on as an undrafted rookie in 2018, but he likely will need to battle for a roster spot after the team traded for Jordan Howard earlier this offseason. On a more optimistic note, the shoulder injury might help explain why Adams dropped out of the game plan during the playoffs, though it probably had more to do with his struggles as a pass blocker and receiver. He took 71 carries for 286 yards (4.0 average) and three touchdowns during his five-game stint as the starter Weeks 11-15, but he caught just three of eight targets for 19 yards in that same stretch.

  • Eagles' Josh Adams: Loses appeal after Howard trade
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Eagles traded for Jordan Howard to join Adams, Corey Clement (knee) and Wendell Smallwood in the backfield, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. The trade is particularly bad news for Adams, considering both he and Howard are big backs with subpar passing-game skills. The Notre Dame product caught on as an undrafted rookie in 2018 and eventually found his way to the lead backfield role, but he played just one snap in two playoff games and likely needs to battle for a roster spot in 2019.

  • Eagles' Josh Adams: Non-factor in Sunday's game plan
    By RotoWire Staff

    Offensive coordinator Mike Groh suggested Tuesday that game flow played a part in Adams being limited to just one snap during the Eagles' wild-card victory over the Bears this past weekend, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. "We had a package for him but over the course of the game it didn't go that way," Groh said. After carrying once for two yards on the Eagles' first possession of the game, Adams never saw the field again, with Darren Sproles (13 carries for 21 yards, two receptions for 14 yards) and Wendell Smallwood (eight carries for 20 yards, two receptions for 20 yards) instead picking up the brunt of the backfield work the rest of the way. Given that neither team led by more than five points during the contest and the Eagles notably gave the 5-foot-6, 190-pound Sproles back-to-back goal-line carries on their final possession, Groh's comments about the game flow being unfavorable for Adams wouldn't seem to hold much water. Since neither Sproles nor Smallwood was especially productive in his opportunities, it wouldn't be surprising if Adams regains prominence in the game plan during Sunday's divisional-round matchup with the Saints, though that's far from guaranteed. Predicting the distribution of touches out of the Philadelphia backfield for the rest of the postseason will likely be an exercise in futility.
