Eagles get offensive contributions Week 11


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Eagles got several minor contributions Week 11 at Green Bay. Among them, wideout Riley Cooper caught four of six targets for 39 yards and tight end Brent Celek had an 11-yard grab.

Running back Darren Sproles ran twice for 21 yards and caught two of six targets for 23 yards. Running back Chris Polk carried three times for no yards.

They'll all play the Titans in Week 12.


Chris Polk not a proven threat yet


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/2014) What's that? Chris Polk, heretofore as relevant to Fantasy Football as James K. Polk, stole eight carries from LeSean McCoy in Week 9? And he ran for 50 yards, you say? A touchdown, too? Well, I'll be.

I could see him being a pest for McCoy owners if the goal-line carries become a regular thing, but let's not put the cart before the horse here. Two of the Eagles' four carries from inside the Texans' 10-yard line still went to McCoy. Polk has some value as a handcuff option, but with Darren Sproles also in the mix, he isn't necessarily a must-add even for McCoy owners.

For more takeaways from Week 9, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.


Emerging RB Chris Polk visits end zone Sunday in Houston


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Eagles running back Chris Polk did more than just give LeSean McCoy a little help Sunday in Houston. He played a key role in the victory.

Polk rushed for 50 yards on eight carries and contributed an 8-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter that stretched the lead to 24-14. Not bad considering he entered play with three attempts for 13 yards on the season.

His next game is set for Monday Night Football in Week 10 against Carolina.


Chris Polk takes advantage of increased roal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Eagles running back Chris Polk got extensive playing time for the first time in Week 9 against the Texans, and took advantage of it with a breakout performance.

Polk, who has been slowed for much of the season by a hamstring injury, slotted in as the No. 2 back and did a solid job. He rushed the ball eight times for 50 yards and even got some goal-line work, rushing for a touchdown in the third quarter, his first of the season.

Polk might have the ability to serve as a solid change-of-pace back moving forward, though there isn't much of a track record to go on here. And LeSean McCoy has never needed a goal-line back to do the dirty work for him before, so that might not even be Polk's long-term role. He might be worth a flier on waivers, but it would be a surprise to see him match this production again as long as McCoy is healthy.


Eagles get offensive contributions Week 8


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Several Eagles' role players contributed Week 8 at Arizona. Among them, tight end Brent Celek caught two of four targets for eight yards, and rookie wideout Josh Huff had a 12-yard catch on four targets. Huff lost a fumble when he was hit from behind running after the catch.

Receiver Jeff Maehl had a 6-yard reception. Running back Chris Polk rushed three times for 13 yards and had a 1-yard catch. They'll all visit the Texans in Week 9.


LB Mychal Kendricks among Eagles cleared Week 8


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks (calf) is active for the game at Arizona, and it will mark his first action since Week 2. Other injured Eagles suiting up are running back Chris Polk (hamstring), who will back up LeSean McCoy with Darren Sproles out; linebacker DeMeco Ryans (groin) and cornerback Jaylen Watkins (wrist).

Eagles in good shape heading into Week 8 game at Arizona


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) The Eagles have released an injury report Friday that has just one player worse off than questionable. Wide receiver Brad Smith (groin) will not play.

Those designated as questionable are center Jason Kelce (hernia), linebacker Mychal Kendricks (calf) and running back Darren Sproles (knee). Running back Chris Polk (hamstring), linebacker DeMeco Ryans (groin) and cornerback Jaylen Watkins (wrist) are probable.


Eagles RB Chris Polk practicing in full


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Eagles running back Chris Polk practiced fully Wednesday despite his hamstring injury and is on track to play Sunday at Arizona. If Darren Sproles (knee) can't play, Polk would back up starter LeSean McCoy.

Polk has no carries in four games played this year.


LeSean McCoy should see bigger role if Darren Sproles is out


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With Darren Sproles likely out for Week 8 against the Cardinals, how will the Eagles fill the hole in their offense this Sunday?  

Chris Polk is the third running back on the depth chart, but he might not have the skills to fill in for Sproles. He has just four career receptions in the NFL, and wasn't much of a pass-catcher in college, with a career-high of 31 catches as a senior. And, of course, he is dealing with his own injury issues, with a hamstring that may still keep him sidelined Sunday.

Of course, the Eagles already have a pretty fantastic option to catch passes out of the backfield in LeSean McCoy. McCoy has taken a step back as a pass-catcher this season, with just 16 through six games, but he does have at least 50 in three of the last four seasons. He should do just fine.

This is a tough matchup for McCoy, as the Cardinals have allowed just 10.7 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Still, with McCoy likely to get a steady workload given the injuries, he has to be in your starting lineup for Week 7, even given his struggles.


Eagles reveal Week 6 inactives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) The Eagles declared linebacker Mychal Kendricks (calf), receiver Brad Smith (groin), running back Chris Polk (hamstring), center Jason Kelce (hernia), quarterback Matt Barkley, offensive lineman Dennis Kelly and defensive end Taylor Hart inactive for Sunday night's game against the Giants.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Chris Polk not an IR candidate


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Eagles running back Chris Polk might not need to go on the short-term injured reserve list, coach Chip Kelly said Saturday, despite Polk dealing with a partially torn hamstring.

Polk was able to practice Saturday, though he told the Philadelphia Enquirer he can still feel the injury when he cuts. He is still not sure if he will be available to play in Thursday's preseason finale, and his availability for the regular season is also in doubt.

"We'll definitely see how practice goes tomorrow; today was a light day," Polk said. 'It felt good to go out there and move around. It's been (nearly) a month, so it definitely felt good."
