  • Eagles' Carson Wentz: Out another week

    Wentz (back) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Texans, but he won't be placed on injured reserve, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

    Coach Doug Pederson said Wentz is now considered week to week, though the team's latest information on his back injury is favorable. Nick Foles will get at least one more start after completing 77.4 percent of his passes for 8.7 yards per attempt in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Rams. A loss to the Texans would essentially kill the Eagles' playoff chances and thus eliminate any hope for Wentz to return this season.

  • Eagles' Nick Foles: Getting another start

    Coach Doug Pederson named Foles as his starter for Week 16 against the Texans, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

    Pederson didn't seem sure about the situation earlier Monday morning, but he's apparently settled on a decision just a few hours later. Foles completed 24 of 31 passes for 270 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Rams, keeping Philadelphia alive in the playoff hunt. Carson Wentz (back) won't be brought back this week, but Pederson did say his franchise quarterback will remain on the 53-man roster, rather than being placed on injured reserve. The Eagles presumably hope Wentz can return for either Week 17 or a possible wild-card playoff game.

  • Eagles' Carson Wentz: Could return Week 16

    Coach Doug Pederson left the door open for Wentz (back) to return for Week 16 against the Texans, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports. "You know it's something we're going to take a look at," Pederson said Monday morning. "We're still gathering some information today and tomorrow. And we'll make that decision later in the week."

    Nick Foles actually decreased his chances of getting another start when he led the team to a 30-23 victory over the Rams on Sunday. The Eagles now have a realistic path to the playoffs, needing wins the next two weeks along with one more loss apiece from the Vikings and the Panthers (who face New Orleans on Monday). While he didn't practice in any capacity last week, Wentz isn't expected to require surgery for his back fracture and thus stands a chance to return before the end of the season. Wednesday will bring his first opportunity to get back on the practice field.

  • Eagles' Zach Ertz: Struggles continue

    Ertz caught three passes (seven targets) for 22 yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Rams.

    Ertz has really struggled over the last two weeks (60 combined receiving yards and no touchdowns) after posting elite numbers through the first 13 weeks of the season. The 28-year-old has still received ample targets (15) during his two-game skid, so this may simply be a cold streak, but it has also come at the worst time for the majority of his fantasy owners. Ertz will look to get back on track against the Texans on Sunday.

  • Eagles' Alshon Jeffery: Posts big numbers in win

    Jeffery hauled in all eight of his targets for 160 yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Rams.

    Jeffery was Nick Foles' favorite target Sunday, and the duo didn't miss a connection all night. The eight receptions tied his season best, but the 160 yards crushed the veteran's previous season high of 105. Other than the lack of a touchdown, this was about as great of a stat line fantasy owners could ask for considering Aqib Talib was lined up against Jeffery for most of the evening with a backup quarterback -- albeit a Super Bowl MVP -- under center. With the Eagles' playoff hopes still alive, the starting QB picture is unclear. Foles or Carson Wentz (back) will be under center next week, but over the past couple of weeks, Jeffery has confirmed he will serve as the top receiver for whomever suits up against the Texans on Sunday.

  • Eagles' Josh Adams: Deals with injury

    Adams (back) rushed 15 times for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Rams.

    Adams was forced to leave the contest on two separate occasions due to a back injury, and while he was able to return both times, it certainly cost him a few opportunities. The touchdown helped salvage what would have been an otherwise poor fantasy performance for the second consecutive week. Adams' recent struggles combined with Wendell Smallwood's (10 carries for 48 yards and two touchdowns) re-emergence and Darren Sproles' recent return (six touches Sunday) have the backfield situation in Philadelphia looking like a timeshare heading into Week 16's matchup with the Texans.

  • Eagles' Wendell Smallwood: Scores twice in victory

    Smallwood ran the ball 10 times for 48 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Rams.

    Recent starter Josh Adams struggled (15 carries for 28 yards and a touchdown) and also had to leave the game twice due to injury, opening up the door for Smallwood to step in and deliver a strong fantasy performance. While the 24-year-old did see extra run due to Adams' back injury, it wasn't purely related to the injury, as the latter didn't miss significant chunks of action. The ground game has been one of the multiple reasons the Eagles have struggled this year, so it wouldn't be surprising to see a timeshare develop -- yet again -- for Week 16's matchup with the Texans.

  • Eagles' Nick Foles: Plays role of backup hero again

    Foles competed 24 of 31 pass attempts for 270 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Rams.

    Foles filled in for injured starter Carson Wentz (back), and the Super Bowl LII MVP delivered in a must-win game. The lack of touchdowns was the biggest negative on the veteran's day from a fantasy perspective, but 270 yards on a 77.4 completion percentage is about as good of a performance as you could ask for in the face of a ferocious defensive line. The Eagles probably were considering shutting Wentz down if the Eagles lost, so winning the game actually clouds Foles' chances of starting against the Texans on Sunday. Expect more news regarding the starting quarterback situation in Philadelphia to come out as Week 16 progresses.
