News: Eagles fullback Stanley Havili was forced out of Thursday night's contest against the Bengals in Week 15 due to a hamstring injury. Havili sustained the injury in the fsecond quarter and failed to return after halftime. He caught just one pass for an 8-yard gain in the second quarter before getting hurt. Emil Igwenagu, who signed off the practice squad this week, took over in his absence at fullback.
Analysis: At this point, it is uncertain how serious Havili's injury is, so we'll continue to monitor his status moving forward. Havili is a fullback and is not a threat to make much of an impact in Fantasy. Healthy or not, continue to ignore him in all formats moving forward.
News: Eagles fullback Stanley Havili had one carry for 5 yards Sunday at the Steelers in Week 5.
Analysis: Havili is a blocking fullback for the Eagles and has minimal Fantasy value. Ignore him in all leagues in Week 6 against the Lions.
News: Coach Andy Reid confirmed that second-year player Stanley Havili will go into training camp as the No. 1 fullback. Havili, a seventh-round pick from Southern Cal, spent 2011 on the practice squad. He replaces Owen Schmitt, who had four carries and three receptions last year and wasn't re-signed.
Analysis: Havili might get a carry or a catch here or there but isn't expected to benefit Fantasy owners.
News: The Eagles announced that they moved closer to the league-mandated 53 players on the active roster by releasing several players Friday. Among the casualties included LB Rashad Jeanty, S Jamar Wall, WR Rod Harper, DE Chris Wilson, center A.Q. Shipley, TE Cornelius Ingram, FB Stanley Havili, guard Dallas Reynolds, and RB Graig Cooper.
Analysis: None of the aforementioned players were expected to start in 2011, so neither player was an option in Fantasy play. Ignore them until their play suggests otherwise.
News: The Eagles selected USC FB Stanley Havili in the seventh round of the NFL draft. Havili, 6-foot and 227 pounds, played in 13 games last season, and rushed 26 times for 166 yards and one touchdown. Havili was third on the team with 32 receptions for 396 yards with two receiving scores.
Analysis: Havili is the prototypical West Coast fullback -- able to pitch in with a few stats here or there. He could have a decent career in the NFL but isn't expected to post relevant stats for Fantasy play.
