Fantasy Football – Fly Eagles Nation Edition – Week 2

In this series, we will outline fantasy football advice as it relates to our beloved Eagles. Every week we will go through each player at the following positions: QB, RB, WR, and TE – with each player at those positions being tagged with a start/sit/FLEX designation and a predicted points total from an NFL.com scoring perspective.

Let’s fly, Eagles Nation!

Quarterback

Jalen Hurts was Jalen Hurts in Week One. You can question the QB and his ability to throw the ball as well as other elite QBs in the league, but one thing you can’t argue is how good a fantasy asset he is. With his scrambling ability and the weapons at his disposal, he is a must start every week. START

Gardner Minshew (0.77 projected fantasy points):

Gardner Minshew was a complete non-factor, as expected, in Week One. This will continue to be the case, unless an injury occurs in front of him. SIT

Ian Book did not suit up in Week One and he will continue to be in street clothes on the sideline unless a catastrophe strikes the Philadelphia Eagles QB depth chart. SIT

Running Back

The Philadelphia Eagles finally gave Miles Sanders the work load he has deserved. He went 13 carries for 96 yards and a TD on the ground to go with two catches for nine yards in the air. In this offense, he will be an RB2/FLEX starter all year, if healthy. START

Kenneth Gainwell (8.18 projected fantasy points):

Kenny G had a decent game with five carries for 20 yards and a touchdown to go with two catches for 12 yards. Gainwell will not be a player you can count on week to week, but he’s a handcuff with flex appeal, depending on how many offensive starters you’re leagues require. FLEX

Boston scored a TD but only received four carries – until something changes ahead of him, he will continue best served as a stash with upside due to injury. SIT

Same as Scott above, and same as last week, Sermon will be a stash piece at best. SIT

Wide Receiver

In Week One, Mr. Brown showed exactly what we hoped to see with 10 catches for 155 yards. A.J. didn’t get into the endzone this week, but with his target share and RAC ability he should be a sure-fire WR1 this year and beyond. START

A very disappointing start to the season in year two. Smitty was targeted four times and and failed to haul in any of them. Smitty didn’t have the best start, but I don’t think it’s time to panic here, keep him in your lineups and he will deliver. FLEX

With Jalen Hurts, A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, Dallas Goedert, and Miles Sanders clearly ahead of Quez in the target pecking order, he will best suited left on the bench. SIT

Zach saw some third down targets in Week One, but with that said, there was nothing noteworthy from his performance from a fantasy football perspective. SIT

Tight End

Goedert caught three balls on four targets for 60 yards. What stands out the most from his stat line are his 15 yards per target and 20 yards per catch numbers. He may not be a focal point every week but he makes big plays, constantly. START

Stoll dropped his only target and looks to be limited to an in-line blocking role – he probably shouldn’t be rostered at this point. SIT

Grant Calcaterra (0 projected fantasy points):

Calcaterra was inactive for week 1, which was slightly surprising for Eagles fans. Moving forward, unless an injury occurs, Grant looks to be a non-factor from a fantasy football outlook. SIT

With Week One in the books and Week Two right around the corner, let’s root our Eagles on and win these leagues. We will see you next week on edition number 3 of Fantasy Football – Fly Eagles Nation Edition. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook, Twitter and on FlyEaglesNation.com! Stay tuned for more great Eagles content. Much love and FlyEaglesFly!
