2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Philadelphia Eagles

In addition to viewing our 2018 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2018 fantasy football projections for the Philadelphia Eagles.


Carson Wentz563.6343.8417127.611.362.6262.91.33.1282.53
Missing the final three (regular-season) games, Wentz is ahead of schedule in his ACL recovery and rehab as he was recently cleared for 7-on-7 drills for mini-camp. Before the injury, Wentz threw 33 touchdowns to only seven interceptions in 13 games and trailed only Russell Wilson in fantasy points scored (through Week 14). With good health in 2018, Wentz should perform as a top-five fantasy quarterback.
Nick Foles17.410.31220.90.44.613.
Despite losing Wentz, the Eagles did not miss a beat when Foles stepped in to lead the team. If Wentz were to miss any time, Foles would immediately become a streaming option.

Running Backs

Jay Ajayi204.2908.76.114.6118.30.91.8141.1
On limited regular-season touches (70 carries and 10 receptions in seven games), Ajayi averaged 5.8 yards per carry and 9.1 yards per reception. Ajayi saw a postseason workload bump with 42 carries and six receptions over three playoff games and he's poised for a larger workload heading into 2018 with LeGarrette Blount in Detroit.
Darren Sproles74.2326.5340.9343.60.80.688.61
Sproles missed all but three games last season, but the veteran change-of-pace back finished as fantasy's RB29 in standard-scoring formats in 2016. Obviously better in PPR formats, Sproles has finished as a top-36 fantasy running back in five of the previous six seasons before last year's injury-shortened campaign.'s Eliot Shorr-Parks wrote in May that "it would not be surprising at all to see Sproles near the top -- if not at the top -- of snaps" (among the team's RBs).
Corey Clement88.2379.3320.4199.920.287.52
Wendell Smallwood9.337.
Matt Jones16.263.20.50000.97.52

Wide Receivers

Alshon Jeffery58.1842.57.30000.2127.65
Posting a 57/789/9 line in his debut season with the Eagles, Jeffery's yardage was the lowest since his rookie season, but he was only one score shy of his career high. His 47.5-percent catch rate was disappointing and he exceeded the 75-yard mark in only two regular-season games. With a team-high 120 targets last season, however, Jeffery remains a threat for double-digit touchdowns as the team's No. 1 receiver with a strong chance to improve on his catch and yardage totals.
Nelson Agholor59.1738.85.61.4700.2107.78
In a breakout campaign, Agholor's 2017 numbers (62/768/8) exceeded his production from the previous two season's combined. Agholor finished as a top-25 fantasy receiver in 2017 in both PPR and standard-scoring formats.
Mike Wallace38.7551.53.90000.278.15
Mack Hollins15.2217.41.20000.128.74
Markus Wheaton8.71140.60000.114.8
Shelton Gibson1.920.90.100002.69
Bryce Treggs0.916.20.10000.12.02

Tight Ends

Zach Ertz77.3865.870000.2128.18
Along with Travis Kelce, Ertz is one of just two tight ends to have a minimum of 70 catches and 800 yards over each of the past three seasons. Only nine tight ends have a 70/800 season over the past three years and only four have multiple. Doubling his previous career high in touchdowns (eight in 2017), Ertz goes into 2018 as a top-three tight end with Rob Gronkowski and Kelce.
Dallas Goedert20.8245.42.50000.239.14
With Trey Burton signing a free-agent deal with the Bears, Goedert has an opportunity to make an immediate impact. While rookie tight ends tend to struggle acclimating to the league, the second-round pick has "hasn’t looked like a rookie" and Doug Pederson likes to use plenty of two- and three-TE sets.
Richard Rodgers7.472.50.7000011.45
