Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood rushed 10 times for 56 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added three receptions for 35 yards.
Fantasy Spin: Smallwood led the Philly backs with 91 total yards from scrimmage and the only TD, stepping up with Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles on the shelf. He split the work with Corey Clement and proved he can get it done when his number is called. He is more of a RB3 or flex fantasy option as long as Ajayi and Sproles are both sidelined.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood made the most of his chance on Sunday, running the ball 10 times for 56 yards and a touchdown, adding three catches for 35 more yards. Smallwood was given the "start" but ended up with fewer touches than Corey Clement. Smallwood could draw some fantasy attention if Darren Sproles (hamstring) and Jay Ajayi (back) end up missing another week.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood could have a somewhat significant role in Week 3, but it's unlikely to be enough to create a significant fantasy impact. With Darren Sproles (hamstring) and Jay Ajayi (back) questionable at best to play against the Colts, Corey Clement could be leading the Eagles backfield against a Colts defense that struggles to defend opposing running backs. Behind Clement would be Smallwood, although undrafted free agent Josh Adams will be active as well. Smallwood could end up with a decent number of touches, but is nothing more than a touchdown-dependent long shot for fantasy production.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood ran for 53 yards on 12 carries on Thursday. He had a long rush of 14 yards in the solid performance, adding two catches for 14 yards. Smallwood is on the roster bubble, but could still make the team at the bottom of the backfield depth chart. He won't have any fantasy relevance.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood received 12 of the team's 20 carries in a 5-0 preseason loss to the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Aug. 23, finishing with 53 yards. He also added two catches for 14 yards.
Philadelphia Eagles running backs Wendell Smallwood and Matt Jones could have good outings on Thursday, making them both potentially solid DFS picks. The two backups are expected to be the only active running backs for Philadelphia's third preseason game. Darren Sproles has already been ruled out and Jay Ajayi is unlikely to play due to a lower body injury. Smallwood and Jones won't have much value during the regular season, but they could be sneaky good running backs for this week's DFS slate.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood has really helped his roster standing in training camp. He has not missed a practice but also leads the team in catches among the running backs. His 26 carries are second to Jay Ajayi. Head coach Doug Pederson also mentioned that Smallwood is a key special teams player. His chances of making the roster are good. Donnel Pumphrey had a solid start to camp but suffered a lower-body injury before the preseason opener, and he hasn't practiced since. Things aren't looking good for him. Matt Jones hasn't really done much to earn a spot and has been in and out of practice with an injury. Smallwood is on the rise, but he's still likely fourth on the depth chart behind Ajayi, Corey Clement and Darren Sproles, making him undraftable in most formats.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood has yet to miss a practice, and perhaps no player has helped himself more during training camp than he has, according to NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks, who speculates Smallwood's chances of making the roster appear to be 'very good right now.'
Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood hurt his chances of making the team in practice on Tuesday, whiffing on a blitz pickup, dropping a screen pass and botching a handoff exchange with quarterback Joe Callahan. Smallwood has not been good so far in training camp this year after continuously falling down the depth chart last season. He appeared in just eight games last season and was a healthy scratch for most of the second half of the season and the playoffs. Expect him to be behind Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement and Darren Sproles on the depth chart entering the season.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood faces a "steep uphill battle" to make the Eagles final roster for the 2018 season. Smallwood got some playing time in 2017, but that all disappeared once Jay Ajayi was acquired. With Ajayi, Darren Sproles, and Corey Clement firmly ahead of him on the depth chart, Smallwood looks like he might have to compete with Donnel Pumphrey for the final running back position. It would be a position that would likely need to contribute on special teams. Smallwood is a replacement level talent at best, so even if he lands in a better situation on a different team, he won't return much if any fantasy value.
