Lack of big plays sinking Eagles DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) The Eagles weren't exactly crushed by the hosting Redskins in Week 16, allowing 27 points on 305 yards, but their DST once again fell short in Fantasy, scoring eight points in standard CBSSports.com leagues. It was its third straight game with less than 10 points.

It was its fourth straight game without a touchdown, which is notable since the Eagles DST scored 10 touchdowns in its first 11 games. It was also big on sacks early in the year but had only two in this one to go along with an interception and a fumble recovery.

The Eagles DST has proven to be a unit that's dependent on big plays for its Fantasy production. Big plays can lead to big points, but they're awfully hard to predict from week to week. The Giants have allowed their share this season -- the Eagles sacked quarterback Eli Manning eight times when the teams last met in Week 6 -- so the Eagles DST remains a viable Fantasy option despite its lackluster production of late.


Report: Eagles LB Trent Cole may need surgery for broken hand


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Eagles linebacker Trent Cole fractured a bone in his hand in Week 15 against the Cowboys, a source told Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Coach Chip Kelly declined to provide an update on his injury during Monday's news conference, and it remains uncertain if Cole will need season-ending surgery.

Philadelphia will face Washington on Saturday.


Eagles provide no update on Trent Cole's hand injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly told reporters that he has no further update on the hand injury linebacker Trent Cole suffered in Week 15 against Dallas, per the team's official website. Cole left the game in the fourth quarter and was unable to return. According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, it remains unclear if he'll need season-ending surgery.

Cole has 6.5 sacks, three forced fumbles through 14 games played this season.

Philadelphia will face Washington on Saturday.


No encore for Eagles DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) The Eagles had arguably their best defensive performance of the season against the Cowboys in Week 13, giving up 10 points on 267 yards, but the rematch didn't go as well in Week 15. The Cowboys scored 38 points on 364 yards, ending a stretch of six games in seven weeks in which the Eagles allowed less than 25 points.

The Eagles didn't make up for it in big plays either, recording three sacks and recovering a fumble with no interceptions. And after all the touchdowns they scored on defense and special teams the first few weeks, they had to rely exclusively on their offense for points for the third straight game.

In terms of Fantasy production, the Eagles DST fell short of double-digit points in standard CBSSports.com leagues for the third time in five weeks, but it scored 18 or more in the other two. It's been kind of a boom-or-bust unit in Fantasy, thanks in part to all the touchdowns, so you'll want to pay close attention to the matchups with it.

Fortunately, it has a favorable one Week 16 at the Redskins, who seem to have a different quarterback every week.


Eagles defense falls short in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The Eagles defense couldn't keep up their strong play in Week 14, as they fell to the Seahawks, 24-14.

The Seahawks racked up 440 yards of total offense in the game, 188 of which came on the ground. The Eagles came up with a few big plays as they tried to slow them down, recording two sacks and two turnovers in the loss.

The Eagles' DST unit has been one of the best in the league this season, largely thanks to their big-play ability, and they came up with 8 Fantasy points even in a down game Sunday. They have a tough matchup with the Cowboys on the way in Week 15. 


Eagles kept LB Emmanuel Acho active only in an emergency


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho, who left Week 12 against Tennessee with a groin injury, was active but did not play Thanksgiving against the Cowboys. Coach Chip Kelly told reporters following a 33-10 victory that Acho was available only in an emergency, per the Philadelphia Daily News.

The Eagles will host the Seahawks in Week 13.


Eagles coach Kelly: 'Don't write off' Emmanuel Acho for Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly told reporters that linebacker Emmanuel Acho will not practice on Monday. Acho left Sunday's game against Tennessee with a groin injury. Although the Eagles are on short rest, Kelly said "don't write Acho off as dead yet" for Thursday's clash against the Cowboys, per Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia.

Another TD for Eagles DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/23/2014) After scoring seven touchdowns in their first five games, the Eagles DST had only two in its next five. But it got back on track Week 12 against Tennessee with wide receiver Josh Huff returning the opening kickoff 107 yards.

The Eagles weren't so bad defensively either, allowing 24 points on 351 yards. They recorded five sacks, giving them 35 in their last eight games, recovered two fumbles and intercepted a pass. But in terms of Fantasy production, the touchdowns have come to define the Eagles DST.

Unfortunately, defensive and special teams touchdowns are difficult to predict from week to week, which is why the Eagles DST remains a viable play despite a so-so matchup Week 13 at Dallas. Just understand you're playing with fire every time you use it.


Eagles LB Emmanuel Acho ruled out Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho was ruled out for the remainder of the game with a groin injury, the team announced shortly after the start of the second half. Acho sustained the injury in the second quarter, shortly after getting beat by Delanie Walker. He finished the game without a tackle.

Eagles LB Emmanuel Acho departs Week 12 with groin injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho left Sunday's game against Tennessee with a groin injury. Acho sustained the injury in the second quarter, shortly after getting beat by Delanie Walker. His return is questionable, per the team's official website.

Eagles DST falters against Packers offense


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) The Eagles DST unit has been one of the best in the league this season, but they were no match for the Packers juggernaut that rolled over them in Week 11's 53-20 loss.

Coming off a 33-point Fantasy game, the Eagles had no answer for the Packers Sunday. They surrendered 32 points on offense while also allowing a punt return touchdown in the game. The Packers racked up 475 yards of total offense before quarterback Aaron Rodgers was lifted, and the Eagles came away from the game with just one sack and no turnovers forced.

The Eagles entered the game averaging 15.8 Fantasy points per game, and Sunday's was the first game in which they had failed to force a turnover. They will look to bounce back in Week 12 against the Titans. 


Eagles lacking for big plays on defense


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) The Eagles defense held their own in Week 9's 31-21 win over the Texans, but a lack of big plays limited their Fantasy production.

The Texans had just 300 yards of total offense in the game and were held to just one score in the second half, but the usually reliable Eagles DST unit failed to contribute much. The Eagles forced just one turnover, though they did salvage their day somewhat with four sacks.

The Eagles DST unit had 20-plus points in each of their three games prior to the bye, but have yet to reach double digits in two games since. They will look to turn things around in Week 10 against the Panthers. 


Eagles DST only average for once


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) Prior to a Week 7 bye, the Eagles DST piled up eight sacks against the Giants in Week 6. It had a combined six touchdowns in Weeks 3-5 and another in Week 1. It's been a must-start unit in Fantasy, and not because of where it ranks in terms of points and yards allowed.

So when it doesn't get a bunch of sacks or a touchdown, as was the case Week 8 at Arizona, it doesn't have much to fall back on. The Eagles allowed 24 points on 400 yards, going without a sack or an interception. Their only big play on the defensive side of the ball was a fumble recovery by Nate Allen late in the third quarter.

That doesn't mean you should give up on the Eagles DST in Fantasy. Clearly, it has plenty of big-play potential. But you'll want to play close attention to the matchups with it. It's a bit risky again Week 9 at Houston, but because the Texans have an occasionally mistake-prone quarterback in Ryan Fitzpatrick, you may just want to run it out there and hope for the best.


Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks expects to practice Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks posted on his website Monday that he will return to practice Tuesday. Kendricks has missed the last four games due to a calf injury.

"I’ll be in practice this week pushing forward," Kendricks wrote, according to the Eagles' official website.

The Eagles were on a bye Week 7. They return to action Week 8 against the Cardinals.


Eagles DST just keeps getting better


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) After making a name for itself in Fantasy with an amazing seven touchdowns in its first five games, the Eagles DST dominated in a more traditional way in Week 6, shutting out the visiting Giants, a team that had scored 30-plus points in three consecutive games.

The Eagles allowed only 253 yards. They recorded eight sacks, including three by Connor Barwin and two by Vinny Curry, to join three teams in a tie for second in that category. Surprisingly, given how critical they were to their success in the early going, they had just one takeaway.

The touchdowns you could have just contributed to luck if you were the pessimistic sort, but a shutout, particularly against an offense of some standing, is impossible to ignore. The Eagles DST is looking like a must-start Fantasy unit. It's on bye in Week 7, but keep it in mind for Week 8 at Arizona.


Eagles LB DeMeco Ryans hoping to play Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans (groin) returned to practice Thursday in a limited capacity. He said he moved fine and is hoping to play Week 6 against the Giants, per The Philadelphia Inquirer.

DeMeco Ryans, Mychal Kendricks sit out Eagles practice Wednesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Eagles linebackers DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks did not practice on Wednesday, according to the Philadelphia Daily News. Kendricks is nursing a calf injury that will likely keep him sidelined through the bye week. Ryans is still hopeful of playing Week 6 against the Giants.

"If there's one guy I wouldn't count out of anything, it would be DeMeco," head coach Chip Kelly said. "But we'll see how he progresses during the week."


Opportunistic Eagles still rolling


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Eagles were gashed by the Rams offense in Week 5, but made up for it with some big plays in a 34-28 win Sunday.

The Eagles DST unit scored twice in the game, once on a blocked punt in the first quarter and later on a fumble recovery in the end zone. That made up for a subpar performance otherwise, as they were tagged for four touchdowns and surrendered 466 yards of total offense. The Eagles lived on big plays, adding four sacks and three turnovers in the win.

The Eagles are allowing 26.4 points per game, but have racked up 15.4 Fantasy points per game, thanks to a litany of defensive and special teams scores. They take on the Giants in Week 6. 


Brandon Boykin active for Week 5 vs. Rams


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Eagles cornerback Brandon Boykin (hamstring) is active for Sunday's Week 5 game against the Rams.

Boykin suffered the injury in Week 4 and was limited in practice this week. The nickel cornerback should fill his regular role Sunday, allowing safety Malcolm Jenkins to remain at safety instead of filling the cornerback role in nickel situations.


Eagles unsure of Mychal Kendricks' status for Week 5


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Monday he doesn't know the Week 5 status yet of linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who has missed the last two games due to a calf injury. 

"He's been in every day trying to get ready," Kelly said. "No expectation yes or no."


Eagles DST does its part


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/29/2014) The Eagles couldn't muster anything offensively Week 4 at San Francisco, but the same can't be said for the defense and special teams. Brad Smith blocked a punt in the end zone for a touchdown in the first quarter, Malcolm Jenkins returned an interception 53 yards for a touchdown in the second and Darren Sproles returned a punt 82 yards for a touchdown a little later in the second.

The three touchdowns gave the Eagles DST five on the season. No other DST has more than two.

Otherwise, the Eagles had just a so-so showing defensively. They had four sacks, but just the one turnover. They also allowed 26 points on 407 yards.

With a favorable matchup Week 5 against St. Louis, the Eagles DST might be worth a look in Fantasy even if it can't continue to score touchdowns at this pace.


Eagles offense does little; special teams chips in


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Eagles defense provided little resistance against Washington Sunday, but the special teams stepped up in a 37-34 win in Week 3.

Washington's offense accounted for 511 yards and 34 points in the game, and the Eagles did little to slow them down. The Eagles DST unit forced just one turnover and failed to record a single sack.

Fortunately, the special teams unit made up for the defense's failings, with a 102-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the first quarter.

The Eagles will look to put together a better performance in Week 4 against the 49ers. 


No surprise inactives for Eagles defense Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Among the six players on the injury report for the Eagles defense in Week 3 against Washington, only defensive back Earl Wolff (knee) was forced to sit out.

Defensive lineman Fletcher Cox (back) is in uniform, along with defensive backs Cary Williams (hamstring), Jaylen Watkins (hamstring), Malcolm Jenkins (shoulder) and Nolan Carroll (elbow). 


Eagles rule out just one on defense for Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The Eagles have seven players listed on the injury report for Week 3 against Washington from the defensive side of the ball, and the vast majority are expected to play.

Among the seven, only lineback Mychal Kendricks (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game. Defensive back Earl Wolff (knee) is also questionable, while defensive backs Cary Williams (hamstring), Jaylen Watkins (hamstring), Nolan Carroll (elbow) and Malcolm Jenkins (shoulder), along with defensive lineman Fletcher Cox (back) are all probable for Week 3. 


Mychal Kendricks looking 'very doubtful' to practice


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Thursday linebacker Mychal Kendricks (calf) might practice Friday. He said he won't determine his status for Week 3 against the Redskins until later in the week.

"We'll see where he can go," Kelly said, per the team's official website. "I don't think he's gonna go in practice today, from the looks of it in the training room. We'll see if there's something he can do tomorrow or Saturday, but right now he's very doubtful (for practice)."
