QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Carson Wentz549.4354.44065.628.299.0754.3209.10.95284.25
The Eagles have a dynamic one-two punch at tight end with Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, but their receiving corps was decimated by injuries last season. Wentz became the league's first 4,000-yard passer without a 500-yard (wide) receiver. The front office turbo-charged the receiving corps with the addition of speed and lots of it this offseason.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Miles Sanders2281014.65.747.6423.62.86195.18
Doug Pederson may favor a committee approach at running back, but Sanders -- 4.6 YPC and 10.2 Y/R as a rookie -- clearly has lead-back talent. After handling just 10.6 touches per game over the first half of the season, Sanders was fed 18 touches per game in the final eight with Jordan Howard missing most of the second half of the season. Although Sanders suffering a week-to-week lower-body injury, a source told ESPN's Tim McManus that Sanders will be "ready to play" Week 1.
Boston Scott86.8355.93.0432.3264.90.9786.14
Effective down the stretch, Scott racked up 350 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns and hauled in 23-of-25 targets over the final four games of the season. While Miles Sanders is "the guy," Scott should get 8-10 touches per week with many of those touches being high-value receptions.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Jalen Reagor53.8747.84.844.326.70.09107.03
Injuries decimated Philadelphia's receiving corps last season and the front office invested heavily into adding reinforcements with Reagor being the headliner of the incoming crop of pass-catchers. An explosive athlete that runs faster than his tested time (4.47) in Indy, Reagor can provide a DeSean Jackson-like impact to the receiving corps. In fact, it wouldn't be surprising if he outproduced the veteran receiver.
DeSean Jackson47.4703.94.6200098.11
Jackson opened the 2019 season and his return to Philly with a bang (8/154/2 in Week 1), but he got hurt in Week 2 and managed just one five-yard reception the rest of the year. The team has loaded up on fast receivers that will likely lead to even more week-to-week volatility in Jackson's output.
Alshon Jeffery35.3457.14.2400071.15
Currently on the active/PUP list, the expectation is that Jeffery will begin the season on the PUP list and be required to miss at least the first six games of the season. The veteran receiver has missed at least three games in four of the past five seasons so durability is always a concern. While he had a big game (9/137/1 vs. MIA) at the end of the season, Jeffery averaged a career-low 11.4 yards per reception over 10 games in 2019.
Greg Ward Jr.14.9157.20.822.211.40.0221.9
J.J. Arcega-Whiteside11.4145.40.9700020.36
John Hightower7.71090.5600014.26
Reagor wasn't the only speedster that the Eagles drafted as Hightower, their fifth-round pick, has shown well during Eagles practices so far.
Quez Watkins1.621.10.130002.89


TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Zach Ertz72.6765.95.12000107.31
A model of consistency, Ertz has a minimum of 74 catches and 816 yards in five consecutive seasons. While he was even better over the past two seasons (204/2,079/14 combined line), the team loaded up on speedy pass-catchers this offseason and Carson Wentz may not need to rely on Ertz as heavily in 2020.
Dallas Goedert40.3419.13.9300065.49
Goedert nearly doubled his production in year two as he finished with 58 catches for 607 yards and five touchdowns on 87 targets. Counting the playoff loss to Seattle, Goedert closed the season with 55-plus yards in five of his final six games. A hairline fracture in one of his thumbs won't jeopardize his availability for Week 1.
