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 Wentz566.5346.7416427.211.360.3247.21.23.1278.48
Missing the final three (regular-season) games, Wentz avoided the active/PUP list and appears more likely than not to be under center for Week 1. Before last year's 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 could perform as a top-five fantasy quarterback.
Nick Foles14.58.61020.70.34.613.
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 Ajayi228.31015.97.814.6119.70.91.8162.16
Getting 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 (much) larger workload heading into 2018 with LeGarrette Blount now in Detroit.
Darren Sproles67.7297.92.740.5340.20.80.683.61
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 Clement86.3371.12.920.7202.92.10.287
Wendell Smallwood9.738.80.23.428.
Donnel Pumphrey2.39.801.

Wide Receivers


Alshon Jeffery64.99678.20000.2145.5
Exceeding the 75-yard mark only twice during the regular season, Jeffery had a disappointing 47.5-percent catch rate in his first season with the Eagles. While his yardage total (789) was the lowest since his 2012 rookie campaign, his nine scores were only one shy of his career high set in 2014. Beginning training camp on the active/PUP list, Jeffery (shoulder) should be fine for the start of the season and I expect better year-over-year numbers for him in 2018.
Nelson Agholor61.27655.81.4700.2111.6
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 Wallace38.7553.43.90000.278.34
Mack Hollins15.2217.41.20000.128.74
Markus Wheaton4.153.70.30000.16.97
Shelton Gibson2.729.70.200004.17
Bryce Treggs0.590.10000.11.3

Tight Ends


Zach Ertz78.4878.17.10000.2130.01
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 one 70/800 season over the past three years and only four have multiple. In a very weak tight end group, Rob Gronkowski, Kelce and Ertz are in a tier by themselves atop the position.
Dallas Goedert23.8280.82.90000.245.08
With Trey Burton signing a free-agent deal with the Bears, Goedert has an opportunity to make an immediate impact. That said, rookie tight ends tend to struggle acclimating to the league even if the second-round pick "hasn’t looked like a rookie."
Richard Rodgers4.544.10.500007.41
