2019 Fantasy Football Projections: Philadelphia Eagles

- Updated: Sunday, July 21st


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Philadelphia Eagles.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Carson Wentz577.9387.24449.830.0510.6946.7168.10.65297.52
The obvious concern with Wentz is durability as the fourth-year quarterback has now missed at least three games in back-to-back seasons. If he can stay healthy, however, he has a ton of upside compared to his current ADP. Wentz showed how good he could be in 2017 when he was the QB2 through Week 14 before missing the final three weeks of the season. The addition of DeSean Jackson gives Wentz the best and most complete group of weapons that he has had in his young career.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Miles Sanders152.9649.85.3533.4253.80.67126.48
Sanders joins a crowded Philly backfield, but he figures to lead the group in workload and production. That said, the team has used (and still plans to use) a committee approach to their backfield despite using a second-round pick on Sanders.
Jordan Howard135.4548.44.8712.790.20.1994.22
Howard has 250-plus carries in each of his first three seasons, but now that he's in Philadelphia, that streak is sure to come to an end. Howard has 18 rushing touchdowns over the past two seasons combined and he'll likely be a TD-dependent play on a weekly basis with Sanders more likely to out-touch him over the full season.
Corey Clement32.1131.60.9615.5133.30.7836.93
Darren Sproles8.836.10.286510.1811.47

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Alshon Jeffery70.9950.17.44000139.65
Jeffery's catch rate was up significantly in 2018 (70.7%) compared to his first season (47.5%, 2017) in Philadelphia and that led to per-game improvements in receptions and yards (5.0/64.8 vs. 3.6/49.3). Missing three games in 2018, Jeffery has now missed at least three games in three of four seasons and has failed to reach the 900-yard mark since 2014.
DeSean Jackson49.2826.64.85.8290.29116.1
In spite of missing four games, Jackson finished 32nd in fantasy points (42nd in PPR) in 2018. Now back in Philadelphia, D-Jax gives the Eagles the deep threat they have lacked. A big play waiting to happen, Jackson has led the NFL in Y/A in 2018 (18.9), 2016 (17.9) and 2014 (20.9).
Nelson Agholor40.7468.12.651.913.30.0464.28
There has been some offseason speculation about Agholor's status with the Eagles. Aside from his touchdowns cut in half year over year (from eight to four), Agholor's 2018 numbers (64/736 on 97 targets) were nearly identical to his 2017 production (62/768 on 95 targets). Barring injuries to others, it's highly unlikely that Agholor duplicates that level of production in 2019.
J.J. Arcega-Whiteside21.3249.21.4900033.86
One of Philadelphia's second-round picks, Arcega-Whiteside should start the season as the team's fourth receiver. A physical receiver with the ability to make tough catches, JJAW could be productive in the red zone during his rookie season.
Mack Hollins7.498.10.5200012.93
Shelton Gibson0.810.70.030001.25

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Zach Ertz97.61034.67.32000147.38
Ertz now has four consecutive 800-yard seasons. While he has had some really productive stretches in previous seasons, the veteran tight end had a breakout season with 116 catches for 1,163 yards and eight touchdowns in 2018. At the most top-heavy fantasy position, Ertz is a consensus top-three option.
Dallas Goedert42.54424.0400068.44
Goedert had 33/334/4 as a rookie and Philadelphia's tight ends coach has described his development as "phenomenal." The presence of Ertz contains his breakout potential to a degree, but he has top-five upside if Ertz were to miss any time.
Richard Rodgers219.40.160002.9
