2013 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Philadelphia Eagles
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

Philadelphia is a talented team that disappointed last year. Several big-name signings didn't live up to expectations, leading to head coach Andy Reid getting fired. New coach Chip Kelly could be a big lift for the team, especially offensively. He is an innovative offensive coach that should produce good yardage and point totals for the Eagles this season. But even with that said, the defense remains inconsistent and there are questions at quarterback. The Eagles should challenge for a playoff spot but don't expect a huge turnaround season this year. It might take a year or two for Kelly to get this team going back in the right direction.

FANTASY BREAKOUT

Zach Ertz, TE. Ertz is a rookie but he seems setup for a nice first season. The Eagles will find ways to get him the ball in their up-tempo offense. Brent Celek is the starter but we aren't sure it will be long before Ertz starts getting the most targets at tight end in the passing game. Ertz isn't a speed burner but runs good routes and has plus hands. He finds ways to get open and make plays. The Eagles will utilize all their playmakers in the passing game, so expect Ertz to find his way on the field and produce his rookie season. He could be a big factor for fantasy teams his rookie season.

FANTASY DUD

Michael Vick, QB. Vick seems likely to start for the Eagles, but we aren't sure a big turnaround season is going to happen for Vick. He has shown too many bad signs the last few years. First off, he continues to battle injury issues. And second, his accuracy just isn't where it needs to be. The new offense could be a better fit for Vick but you just don't know if he is in the future plans for the Eagles. We wouldn't be shocked to see Matt Barkley emerge as the starter for the Eagles before the season is over. Vick carries a lot of risk for fantasy teams this year.
