News: Linebacker Jamar Chaney (neck) was cleared by team doctors to participate in this week's OTAs. He's working at all three LB positions, but he will probably see most of his action on the weak side unless rookie Mychal Kendricks can't cut it on the strong side. "I feel great and I'm ready to go, no matter where they put me," Chaney said.
Analysis: Chaney shouldn't be expected to put up big stats as the Will linebacker in Philadelphia. He'll be worth a late-round pick as a reserve linebacker in Fantasy this summer.
News: Eagles LB Jamar Chaney had a slow day as a tackle producer, but his third-quarter interception of a Mark Sanchez pass made up for only having three tackles in the Eagles' 45-19 win over the Jets.
Analysis: Chaney has been pretty productive in his second season as a pro. He has 86 tackles and three interceptions now. Hes a solid low-end LB option in Fantasy IDP formats.
News: Philadelphia LB Jamar Chaney had 12 tackles (seven solo) in the Eagles' 31-14 loss to the Seahawks in Week 13. It was his most productive day of his season in terms of tackles.
Analysis: Chaney has been moderately productive in his second season, reaching 80 total tackles in 12 games. He has also added two interceptions on the season. Fantasy owners should view Chaney as a low-end LB option based on his solid tackle numbers.
News: Eagles LB Jamar Chaney intercepted Giants QB Eli Manning and returned it 14 yards in Week 11. He also led the team with six tackles, four solo, in Sunday's 17-10 win. It was his second interception of the season.
Analysis: Chaney now has 66 tackles on the year for the Eagles. The second-year player already has more tackles than he did in his rookie campaign. Fantasy owners should continue to view him as a low-end LB option, but he has shown promise this year.
News: Philadelphia LB Jamar Chaney registered six tackles and a sack during the Eagles' 21-17 loss to Arizona in Week 10. Chaney took down Cardinals QB John Skelton for his first sack of the season -- one of four takedowns mustered by the defense.
Analysis: Chaney has been on a steady pace with his tackles recently and totaled 23 stops over his past three games. The 25-year-old also notched a pass defended during Sunday's game -- his fourth of the season. Consider him a rising option in Fantasy IDP formats.
News: Eagles LB Jamar Chaney had a nice Monday night in Week 9 during a loss to the Bears. Chaney recorded 10 tackles for the Eagles, seven of which were solo.
Analysis: Chaney had his first game this season in double figures in tackles on the Monday night stage. Chaney is up to 53 tackles in eight games to go with one interception. He's gaining value, but Chaney remains more of a low-end Fantasy option in IDP formats.
News: Eagles LB Jamar Chaney picked off Ryan Fitzpatrick and totaled eight tackles in Buffalo in Week 5 action.
Analysis: Chaney's not bad as a low-end Fantasy LB in deeper leagues -- plays like his interception will keep him on the field. He's unowned in 91 percent of CBSSports.com leagues.
News: Eagles LB Jamar Chaney was credited with four tackles in Week 3 against the Giants, good for second on the team. Chaney got the start at middle linebacker in place of the ineffective Casey Matthews.
Analysis: Chaney finds himself in a good position to rack up tackles going forward. Take a chance on him in deeper IDP formats, where available.
News: The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Jamar Chaney will take over as the Eagles' new starting middle linebacker in place of the ineffective Casey Matthews, who will move to weakside linebacker, according to team sources.
Analysis: This move isn't surprising seeing how Matthews has struggled as the Mike linebacker in his first two NFL games. Chaney has the chance to now rack up a lot of tackles, but he is still more of a low-end Fantasy LB initially.
News: Eagles LB Jamar Chaney led the Eagles with six tackles in Week 1 at St. Louis. He did not manage any sacks or passes defensed, however.
Analysis: Chaney was tied with Jarrad Page with the modest total in tackles. He should remain a decent source for tackles as long as he continues to receive significant playing time in Philadelphia, making him worthy of owning as a reserve option.
News: Philadelphia Eagles rookie Jamar Chaney will literally be thrust into the middle of the rivalry with the New York Giants in Week 15, when he makes his first career start at middle linebacker. Chaney, a seventh-round pick last April out of Mississippi State, replaced Stewart Bradley early in the second quarter of a 30-27 victory over Dallas last Sunday. Bradley dislocated his right elbow, and is expected to miss the rest of the regular season. Chaney has impressed the coaching staff in limited duty. He was credited with seven tackles in the win over the Cowboys. "You could tell he had done his homework when he stepped in for Bradley," coach Andy Reid said. "He didn't miss a beat as far as the calls go. He gets better every time he has an opportunity to play. You saw that during camp, so I would expect that, when he has this opportunity to play."
Analysis: But Reid knows that the Giants' offense is a bit different than the last-place Cowboys'. "They'll test the linebackers," Reid said, "with that run game and the way the tight end plays, and the screen game and so on." Consider the rookie warned. "I've just got to do my thing," Chaney said, "and be ready for whatever they throw at me." Chaney might be worth a flier in deeper Fantasy IDP leagues since middle linebackers have the ability to rack up tackles.
News: Coach Andy Reid said he hasn't decided whether rookie Jamar Chaney or veteran Omar Gaither will replace Stewart Bradley (elbow) at middle linebacker for the rest of the regular season. Chaney appears to have the inside track after replacing Bradley at Dallas in Week 14, registering five tackles.
Analysis: Chaney isn't an awful guy to pick up in IDP leagues, assuming he ends up starting next week against the Giants, but you'd have to be really thin at linebacker to consider him a starting option. Look at other LBs on waivers before settling on Chaney.
News: Eagles rookie LB Jamar Chaney filled in for the injured Stewart Bradley (elbow) when he left in the Week 14 game against the Cowboys, and led the team in tackles. Chaney totaled seven tackles -- five solo -- in the win. He is expected to start for the remainder of the regular season with Bradley out.
Analysis: Chaney was able to rack up a carer-high in tackles because he was playing a limited role before Sunday night. The Mississippi State product has the ability to rack up a good number of tackles in the middle of the always active Eagles defense. Consider him to be a sleeper option in Fantasy play for the last few weeks, as long as Bradley is out.
News: The Eagles drafted LB Jamar Chaney in the seventh round of the NFL Draft at No. 220 overall. Chaney, from Mississippi State, will have a chance to be a reserve linebacker for the Eagles and play on special teams.
Analysis: The Eagles could use Chaney as part of the linebacker corps, but he will have to make the team first and prove he can play on special teams. Ignore him in all leagues on Draft Day.
