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 Wentz534.5327.1392925.710.755.7228.41.13.1261.8
Missing the final three (regular-season) games, Wentz avoided the active/PUP list, but it's possible that he misses "a week or two" to open the season. 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).
Nick Foles46.527.43262.319.327.
Despite losing Wentz, the Eagles did not miss a beat when Foles stepped in to lead the team. If Wentz misses a game or two to open the season, Foles is worth a look as a quarterback to stream.

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 in Philadelphia. 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 Adams11.649.90.31.612.5008.04
Donnel Pumphrey2.39.806.351.

Wide Receivers


Alshon Jeffery55.382470000.2124
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. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jeffery (shoulder) is expected to miss the first two games of the season with the hope of being ready for Week 3.
Nelson Agholor65.9830.
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. With Jeffery expected to miss (at least) the first two games of the season, Agholor has a chance to repeat as a top-25 fantasy wide receiver.
Mike Wallace40.4577.740000.281.37
Mack Hollins16.1230.21.30000.130.62
Shelton Gibson8.795.70.6000013.17
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 such 70/800 season over the past three years and only four have multiple. In a weak positional group, Rob Gronkowski, Kelce and Ertz are in a tier by themselves atop the position.
Dallas Goedert28.3333.93.40000.253.39
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. Goedert had a productive preseason and could be the biggest beneficiary of Alshon Jeffery's likely two-game (or more) absence to start the season.
Richard Rodgers2.625.50.300004.35
