Long recorded three tackles and half of a sack during Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. Long now has 2.5 sacks over the last two weeks, but he's rarely in a position to make many tackles -- Long has tallied more than two tackles in two of nine games in 2018 -- making him someone who can be forgot about in just about every IDP format.
Long recorded two sacks across 40 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. Long made his presence felt across the pond, taking down an opposing quarterback for the first time since Week 1. He continues to play a rotational role on the defensive line, splitting reps with Brandon Graham and Michael Bennett -- which does end up diminishing his IDP value at times.
Long has yet to decide whether he will play during the 2018 season, NFL.com reports. The Eagles reportedly offered Long, who is currently under contract through 2018, a one-year extension that would bump his salary from $1 million in base pay to $4 million guaranteed The soon-to-be 33-year-old has yet to accept or decline the offer and presumably won't take action on that front until he determines his future in the sport. Long was serviceable in a rotational role at defensive end last season, notching 20 tackles and five sacks across 495 defensive snaps.
Long recorded two solo tackles, one sack and one forced fumble Sunday against the Rams. Sunday was the third time this season that Long posted a sack and a forced fumble in the same game. However, he logged a season-low 18 defensive snaps Sunday, so the performance could be considered an outlier. Long's erratic production keeps him off the fantasy radar, except in the deepest of IDP formats.
Long (foot) is active for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Long was limited in practice this week due to a foot injury but will take the field Thursday night nonetheless. The veteran defensive end has been averaging a little less than 25 defensive snaps per game, and that number could shrink Thursday should the Eagles decide to limit his playing time.
