Player Notes
Nov 28 1:50pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood is not a fantasy relevant player in Week 13. The Eagles backfield fully belongs to Josh Adams, who saw 22 carries last week (the most ever for a running back on a Doug Pederson coached team.) Corey Clement may still mix in and see some targets in the passing game, but Smallwood is likely only going to be used to spell Adams on early downs the few times that is necessary. He's a fine handcuff for Adams owners, but can be dropped in most formats otherwise.

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood is not a usable fantasy option in Week 12 against the New York Giants. Smallwood was clearly passed on the depth chart by undrafted free agent Josh Adams in Week 11 and still has to compete with Corey Clement for scraps behind him. Smallwood shouldn't be started in Week 11, but he's worth holding onto in deeper leagues as a possible depth piece.

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood rushed once for negative four yards in Week 11 against the New Orleans Saints. Thats it. Even in a pass-heavy game script, Smallwood could not cash in on his normal passing duties. Smallwood was third in touches in the Eagles backfield behind Josh Adams (10) and Corey Clement (four). Phillys run game has gone down the tubes since Jay Ajayis (knee) injury and no backs have capitalized on the void. With a touchdown Sunday, Adams has likely become the committee head, rendering both Smallwood and Clement barely fantasy-relevant.

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood is not a recommended fantasy option in a Week 11 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Smallwood fell behind in the Eagles backfield pecking order in Week 10, getting five touches to Corey Clement's six and Josh Adams' seven. It's a messy backfield in general, but the Week 11 matchup against the league's best run defense makes it a best-avoided situation overall.

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood ran the ball just twice on Sunday night, gaining only four yards. He did add three catches for 30 yards. Smallwood was clearly working behind rookie Josh Adams, who seemed to take over the Eagles backfield in this one. Smallwood will serve as a depth piece going forward, and may need an injury ahead of him in order to return much fantasy value.

Nov 11 11:53pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood ran twice for four yards while adding three grabs for 30 yards in the Week 10 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Spin: Smallwood had five total touches for 34 total yards, Corey Clement had six touches for just eight total yards and Josh Adams was the winner of sorts, posting seven rushes for 47 yards. The backfield in Philly is a hodgepodge right now, and until someone steps up and takes the reins as the clear-cut option, all involved have minor fantasy appeal.

Nov 7 11:30am ET

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood is not a recommended fantasy starter for a Week 10 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Smallwood will certainly have a role in the Eagles backfield, but with Darren Sproles, Corey Clement, and Josh Adams also around, it's too risky to rely on any one Eagles running back. Smallwood could have the short-yardage role and may fall into the end zone, but it seems like the only way any of these backs have fantasy value is if they score a touchdown. It's too risky to try to predict which one that will be. If at all possible, this backfield is best avoided in Week 10.

Oct 28 4:10pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood led the Eagles backfield in London, running the ball eight times for 24 yards and catching two passes for 42 yards and a touchdown. Smallwood didn't do much in the first half, but he caught a screen pass in the second half and ran it 36 yards for a score. Josh Adams got some more snaps in this one and has likely earned a larger role after the Eagles bye, but Smallwood is still a solid hold in most formats.

Oct 28 12:53pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood caught two passes for 42 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8. He also rushed for 24 yards on eight carries during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Smallwood has been receiving a decent amount of touches over the last few games, but he could lose some work with Darren Sproles expected back soon. He can be owned in deeper leagues but will not be a weekly starting option.

Oct 26 1:03pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles LB Nathan Gerry (ankle, knee), S Corey Graham (hamstring), CB Sidney Jones (hamstring) and RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. DT Haloti Ngata (calf) was able to practice in full Friday, Oct. 26, and is listed as questionable. OT Lane Johnson (ankle) and OT Jason Peters (biceps) were limited practice for third straight day Friday but no longer appear on the injury report. LB D.J. Alexander (quad), CB Rasul Douglas (non-injury), RB Wendell Smallwood (non-injury) and QB Carson Wentz (back) participated fully in practice Friday and have also been removed from the injury report.

Oct 25 4:13pm ET

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 25.

Fantasy Spin: Smallwood has received at least 10 touches in each of the last two games and likely will see a similar role this week. He will be facing a solid Jacksonville Jaguars defense and may only be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

Oct 25 2:03pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (personal) returned to practice Thursday, Oct. 25, after missing practice Wednesday, Oct. 24.

Fantasy Spin: Smallwood hasn't done much whilst splitting backfield repetitions with Corey Clement. In his last two games he has totaled only 88 yards on 30 touches. He still possesses flex appeal in deeper leagues, but the matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars is subpar.

Oct 24 2:00pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles running backs Wendell Smallwood (undisclosed) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) are not practicing on Wednesday. Sproles hasn't played since the season opener and hasn't practiced since either, so there remains no timetable for his return. Smallwood has been forming an uninspiring tandem with Corey Clement since Jay Ajayi was lost for the season. If he has to sit out in London against the Jaguars, Clement would likely share touches with rookie Josh Adams. The Eagles backfield is a situation to avoid right now for fantasy owners.

From RotoBaller

Oct 24 12:30pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood is a low-end Flex play at best for Week 8. The Eagles will be in London to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. Smallwood has out-touched his backfield mate Corey Clement 30-24 over the past two weeks, but the Eagles have shown an overall inability to run the ball effectively lately. Either back could fall into the end zone and end up with a decent fantasy day, but most owners likely have better upside options to use.

From RotoBaller

Oct 21 7:20pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood led the Eagles backfield with 11 touches, catching two passes for five yards and running the ball nine times for 32 yards. Corey Clement touched the ball 10 times, and with Darren Sproles expected back from a hamstring injury before long, the Eagles backfield is about to get even messier.

From RotoBaller

Oct 21 5:03pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood rushed nine times for 32 yards in the Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers and he added just two grabs for five yards.

Fantasy Spin: Smallwood has been a big waiver wire addition in fantasy football in recent weeks with Jay Ajayi done for the season, but this was a big goose egg. He'll look for better results in Week 8 against the Jaguars in London. The good news is Corey Clement did even worse, so it's still Smallwood's job to lose.

Oct 17 12:10pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood makes for an unexciting Week 7 fantasy option against the Carolina Panthers. Smallwood is certainly in the Flex conversation, but his fellow running back, Corey Clement, seems like the better option. Smallwood is averaging just 5.4 yards after the catch, good for 38th among 39 qualifying running backs. Meanwhile, Clement is currently fourth with 11.4 yards after the catch. Smallwood should have enough volume to return Flex value in a good matchup, but owners choosing between the Eagles runners should always go with Clement.

From RotoBaller

Oct 12 11:00am ET

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood was given 18 carries on Thursday but was unable to do much with them, racking up just 51 yards. He only caught one pass, and it went for no gain. Smallwood out-touched Corey Clement 19-14, but Clement was clearly the better player. Clement should continue to outplay Smallwood going forward, but as long as he's getting well over a dozen carries, Smallwood could be a lower end Flex option.

From RotoBaller

Oct 12 12:43am ET

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood carried the ball 18 times for 51 yards against the New York Giants in Week 6.

Fantasy Spin: Minus Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles, the Eagles turned to Smallwood and Corey Clement on Thursday night. Smallwood pounded away to little effect, but he kept the clock moving once Philly had buried the G-Men. He almost gave New York life with a fumble that was initially awarded to the Giants, but replay showed Smallwood recovered his own miscue. We'll have to wait and see what the team's backfield looks like come Week 7 before getting an accurate read on Smallwood's fantasy outlook.

Oct 10 11:20am ET

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood is a solid option for Week 6 against the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football. Smallwood has been effective when given the opportunity, finishing two of the past three weeks as the RB14 or better. Now that Jay Ajayi (torn ACL) is done for the season, Smallwood and Corey Clement will be sharing backfield work for the Eagles. Smallwood is likely to take on the early down role and work between the 20s, while Clement will work more in a receiving and red zone role. That limits Smallwood's upside a bit, but should provide him with a decent floor. He can be counted on as a solid Flex option this week.
