2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Philadelphia Eagles
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Eagles are a team on the rise. This team made big strides last season and could be even better this year. The offense could be scary good, especially with reports in the offseason about the team working at an even faster pace this year. The defense also has the pieces in place to do well. The key might be the play of the secondary. If this unit can make strides, it wouldn't surprise to see the Eagles not only win the division title again but also contend for a Super Bowl spot.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Receiver Jeremy Maclin is going to have some big shoes to fill this season, returning from his torn ACL and serving as the No. 1 receiver for the Eagles. We think he'll be up to the task, though. Maclin has never topped 1,000 yards in a season but is primed to do so this season. The Eagles run a ton of plays and Maclin could get the most targets on the team. He has big potential for that breakout season. He really hasn't lived up to expectations to date, posting decent but not great numbers throughout his career.
FANTASY DUD
Receiver Riley Cooper had a career season last year but his overall numbers still weren't great by any means. He failed to top 50 receptions for 900 yards. He was productive but don't overvalue him come draft day. We don't see a big bump in production, especially with DeSean Jackson gone. Jackson did a good job of drawing attention in coverage, making it a bit easier for Cooper to get open.

Team Notes

Oct 29, 02:13 PM Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Impact: Sproles is expected to return to the starting lineup this week.
Oct 29, 02:03 PM Philadelphia Eagles S Nate Allen (hamstring) and CB Brandon Boykin (hamstring) both did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29. WR Brad Smith (groin) was limited in practice.

Oct 28, 05:33 PM Philadelphia Eagles OG Todd Herremans (biceps), who tore his biceps in Week 8, said he wants to try and play in Week 9 against the Houston Texans. However, he could miss the rest of the season since surgery hasn't been ruled out. OG Dennis Kelly would likely start in Herremans' place this weekend if he doesn't play.
Oct 28, 05:33 PM Philadelphia Eagles C Jason Kelce (hernia) is expected to do more in practice this week, and he could return to play against the Houston Texans in Week 9.

Oct 28, 02:33 PM Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) fully participated in practice Tuesday, Oct. 28. Sproles said he is hopeful to play this week, but is not sure of his status until he gets more practice in.

Oct 26, 09:02 PM Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 36 of his 62 pass attempts for 411 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 8 game against the Arizona Cardinals. His 62 pass attempts tied the franchise record set by former QB Randall Cunningham in 1989. Foles is also the first Eagles QB with nine interceptions through seven games since Cunningham, also in 1989.
Oct 26, 08:52 PM Philadelphia Eagles PK Cody Parkey booted two field goals (54, 20) with two extra points in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals. He tied a franchise record with his third 50-plus-yard field goal in a single season.
