Nelson Agholor caught 4-of-7 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 6 win over the Panthers.

Agholor's touchdown, a 24-yarder in the fourth quarter, was his fourth of the season. He caught a quick slant then turned on the YAC afterburners. Agholor has been extremely impressive after the catch in his third NFL campaign. It's the main reason his career has suddenly revived. He is beginning to force himself onto the WR3 radar in standard leagues.

Alshon Jeffery caught 4-of-10 targets for 71 yards in the Eagles' Week 6 win over the Panthers.

The game was Jeffery's Eagles tenure in a nutshell, as he was inefficient and botched a few chances at big plays. One of Jeffery's missed connections was a drop on a deep sideline ball. Jeffery just isn't clicking with Carson Wentz yet, though a brutal opening slate of cornerbacks has surely played a part. The Eagles get the Redskins for Week 7. It's unclear if Josh Norman (ribs) will be ready.
Oct 13 - 12:19 AM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 14 times for 67 yards in the Eagles' Week 6 win over the Panthers.

Blount was also called for a personal foul, but it was a bad call. He was merely finishing a block. Blount was a freight train this evening, and frankly, deserved more work. Sluggish to begin the year, Blount has now been trucking over defenders every game since Darren Sproles got hurt, clearing 67 yards on the ground each of the past four weeks. He has only one rushing touchdown to show for it, but has solidified his RB2 value. He gets the Redskins in Week 7.
Oct 13 - 12:11 AM

Zach Ertz caught 2-of-5 targets for 18 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' Week 6 win over the Panthers.

Tonight was the first time all season Ertz failed to catch five passes or post 55 yards, but he made up for it by doubling his touchdown total. Ertz got free in the middle of the end zone for TD No. 1 then skied over S Mike Adams for TD No. 2. Through six games, Ertz is now the owner of a 34/405/4 line. He gets the Redskins for Week 7.
Oct 13 - 12:06 AM

Carson Wentz completed 16-of-30 passes for 222 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' 28-23, Week 6 win over the Panthers.

He added six carries for 25 yards. Wentz started out slow, getting strip sacked for a lost fumble to kill Philly's first drive. Wentz didn't feel Julius Peppers coming. The absence of RT Lane Johnson was evident, as Wentz was getting bombed from the right side. Set up with excellent field position by a pair of Panthers turnovers, however, Wentz converted two bunny scores and got on track. The three-touchdown effort was his second in as many games after he had previously never crossed the threshold. The lone negative for Wentz this evening was the number of unnecessary hits he exposed himself to. That was a problem for him at times as a rookie. Wentz gets the Redskins on Monday Night Football in Week 7.

Eagles declared RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) inactive for Week 6 against the Panthers.

The fact that Smallwood was questionable on the short week should give him a shot at returning in Week 7. Also inactive for the Eagles are CB Ronald Darby, WR Shelton Gibson, RT Lane Johnson, DT Elijah Qualls, DT Destiny Vaeao and S Jaylen Watkins
Oct 12 - 6:58 PM

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox (calf) is active for Week 6 against the Panthers.

Cox missed the Eagles' past two games. His return is a major boost across the board, particularly against the run. Carolina's ground attack has been struggling. Cox will aim to keep it that way.
Oct 12 - 6:56 PM

Eagles RT Lane Johnson (concussion) is out for Week 6 against the Panthers.

Halapoulivaati Vaitai will make the start in Johnson's absence. As noted by ex-Rotoworlder Adam Levitan, Carson Wentz has some drastic splits without Johnson in the lineup. Wentz should be treated as more of a QB2.
Oct 11 - 11:31 AM

Wendell Smallwood (knee) is questionable for Week 6 against the Panthers.

Smallwood hasn't practiced since getting hurt Week 4 against the Chargers and seems very unlikely to play on Thursday night on a short week. It'll again be LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement sharing the backfield.
Oct 11 - 11:30 AM

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox (calf) practiced Tuesday.

It gives him a good chance to suit up against the Panthers on Thursday night. Cox has been sidelined since Week 3.
Oct 10 - 12:13 PM

Wendell Smallwood (knee) did not practice Tuesday.

Smallwood also sat out Monday's session, making it extremely unlikely he is ready to go Thursday night against the Panthers. LeGarrette Blount will continue to lead a committee rounded out by Corey Clement and Kenjon Barner.
Oct 10 - 12:12 PM

Wendell Smallwood (knee) did not practice Monday.

He missed Sunday's game against the Cardinals and will now be up against it to be ready on a short week Thursday night in Carolina. LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement essentially split the snaps without Smallwood.
Oct 9 - 7:06 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson confirmed RT Lane Johnson is in the concussion protocol.

Johnson suffered the injury Week 5 against the Cardinals. With the Eagles playing on Thursday night, it is highly unlikely Johnson will be ready to face the Panthers this week. Halapoulivaati Vaitai will likely get the start with Johnson sidelined.
Oct 9 - 12:07 PM

Zach Ertz contributed six catches for 61 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets Sunday in the Eagles’ Week 5 win over the Cardinals.

It was another successful week for Ertz, who was able to take advantage of his matchup with Cardinals safety Tyvon Branch. Ertz squeezed between two defenders for an 11-yard touchdown late in the first quarter on a third-down heave from Carson Wentz. With Alshon Jeffery continuing to face tough matchups (this week he squared off with Patrick Peterson), Ertz has settled in as Wentz’s clear go-to receiver. He’ll maintain TE1 status for next week’s Thursday night matchup against the Panthers.
Oct 8 - 6:06 PM

Nelson Agholor pulled in four catches for 93 yards and a touchdown on five targets Sunday in the Eagles’ Week 5 win over the Cardinals.

That’s a new career-high in receiving yards for Agholor, who has now scored in three-of-five games to start the year. Most of Agholor’s production Sunday came on a 72-yard touchdown strike from Carson Wentz midway through the third quarter. Agholor found an opening in the Cardinals’ secondary, then juked safety Budda Baker out of his shoes for the score. After disappointing his first two years in the league, Agholor finally looks like the player the Eagles thought they were getting when they drafted him 20th overall in 2015. Agholor will square off against the Panthers in Week 6.
