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 Wentz566.5346.7416427.211.359.9245.61.23.1278.32
Missing the final three (regular-season) games, Wentz avoided the active/PUP list and appears likely to be under center for Week 1 even though Wentz himself said "[i]t's gonna be close." 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 has top-five upside.
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 Ajayi219.5976.87.916.7136.911.8161.17
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.
Corey Clement100.74333.224.2229.
Hauling in four receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown in Super Bowl 52, Clement saved his best game of the season for last. Heading into 2018, the second-year back should back up/mix in with Ajayi on early downs while also splitting third-down work with veteran Darren Sproles.
Darren Sproles63.6279.82.440.5340.20.80.680
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. There have been some reports suggesting that Sproles could be more involved than expected. While he typically goes undrafted in standard-sized, standard-scoring leagues, he's worth a late-round pick in PPR and deeper formats.
Josh Adams11.649.90.3215.60.108.95
Donnel Pumphrey2.39.806.351.

Wide Receivers


Alshon Jeffery60.6902.97.60000.2135.49
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. Peterson shot down report that suggested Jeffery (shoulder) could begin the season on reserve/PUP, but Jeffery's status for the season opener (or first few weeks) remains uncertain.
Nelson Agholor65.2821.
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. Especially if Jeffery misses any games to start the season, Agholor has a chance to do what he did last season.
Mike Wallace37.1530.53.70000.274.85
Mack Hollins16.1230.21.30000.130.62
Shelton Gibson7.582.50.5000011.25
Bryce Treggs0.47.200000.10.52

Tight Ends


Zach Ertz75.5845.66.80000.2124.96
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 weak tight end group, Rob Gronkowski, Kelce and Ertz are in a tier by themselves atop the position.
Dallas Goedert26.5312.73.20000.250.07
With Trey Burton signing a free-agent deal with the Bears, Goedert has an opportunity to make an immediate impact even though rookie tight ends tend to struggle acclimating to the league. Through the first three preseason games, Goedart has a 9/149/1 line.
Richard Rodgers3.332.30.300005.03
