Panthers | Jason Avant signs

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 15:34:49 -0700

The Carolina Panthers signed free-agent WR Jason Avant (Eagles) to an undisclosed one-year deal Monday, April 7.

Fantasy Tip: Avant is more of a complementary wide receiving piece, but he'll effectively be Carolina's No. 2 wideout opposite Jerricho Cotchery. The Panthers receivers won't have much time to familiarize themselves with Cam Newton (ankle) this offseason, either. Avant will probably go undrafted in most standard leagues.

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 17:24:04 -0700

The Kansas City Chiefs are interested in free-agent WR Jason Avant (Eagles), according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: It would make sense, as head coach Andy Reid is more than familiar with Avant from their days together with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Eagles | Offense efficient

Tue, 10 Sep 2013 09:45:53 -0700

The Philadelphia Eagles' offense was efficient and quick in their Week 1 victory over the Washington Redskins Monday, Sept. 9; they ran a play every 22.4 seconds and 53 in the entire game. RB LeSean McCoy had big holes to run through, and WRs DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant and TE Brent Celek were wide open most of the time down the field. QB Michael Vick was very successful running the read-option. However, the Eagles players looked fatigued late in the game, often coming off the field for breathers. Jackson didn't catch any passes in the second half. "The tempo really worked," McCoy said. "I don't think anyone has seen it that fast. We've got to learn. We're learning as the thing goes. Coach Chip Kelly is a great coach. Today is the first time a lot of the guys in the locker room had fun. We couldn't wait to get back out there and have fun."

Fantasy Tip: Philly's offense was downright impressive in the first half. The up-tempo attack should continue to create mismatches in opposing defenses, but as we saw in the second half, is this something that Philadelphia will be able to sustain over a full season? Probably not, but for the time being, it makes all of the Iggles' offensive weapons much more attractive.

Eagles | Confirm Jeremy Maclin injury

Sat, 27 Jul 2013 14:32:09 -0700

The Philadelphia Eagles confirmed reports that WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Fantasy Tip: This will effectively end Maclin's season. Riley Cooper reportedly stepped into his place during practice but probably isn't a better fantasy option than Arrelious Benn (knee) and Jason Avant if all three are healthy. The tight ends could see more targets, but the mix remains complicated with Brent Celek, Zach Ertz and Clay Harbor, and it could be a fantasy mess. This also removes a weapon from either Nick Foles or Michael Vick.

Eagles | WR spots up for grabs

Tue, 09 Jul 2013 16:06:00 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WRs DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and Damaris Johnson are considered locks to make the team. One or two more spots will be filled by Riley Cooper, Arrelious Benn, Ifeanyi Momah, B.J. Cunningham and Russell Shepard.

Fantasy Tip: Benn could be a better keep than Cooper because he can play the slot and outside along with his return experience. Either way, the wide receivers in Chip Kelly's system take a hit from past years in Andy Reid's. Jackson and Maclin are merely WR3s, and these depth players aren't as attractive as fantasy flyers anymore.

Eagles | Teammates impressed with Nick Foles' poise

Thu, 06 Dec 2012 05:36:51 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles teammates have been impressed so far with how QB Nick Foles has handled himself in the huddle, particularly how he carries himself with confidence. "He's got poise in there," TE Brent Celek said. "He's just a natural quarterback. Being a quarterback you have to be one of the leaders on the team, and he's got that." WR Jason Avant added, "He's very savvy. He's very calm. He's not as fleet afoot as Mike, but he's very calm under pressure and knows he can get the ball out even though he can't run around."

Eagles | Jason Avant critical of team

Mon, 15 Oct 2012 06:54:23 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jason Avant expressed his displeasure following a Week 6 loss, saying the team has a selfish attitude. "It's just undisciplined. That's the bottom line. It's undisciplined football. An undisciplined team at this point. Six games in, it's embarrassing. That's the word. Embarrassing. For coaches. And veteran players," Avant said. "With the mindset of, 'Me before the team,' in certain instances. And we need to address that before we play another ballgame."

Eagles | Jeremy Maclin ruled out for Week 3

Fri, 21 Sep 2012 09:21:53 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (hip) did not practice Friday, Sept. 21, and is ruled out for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should've been preparing for Week 3 as if this were going to be the case, anyway. This sounds like a short-term injury, at least. DeSean Jackson and Brent Celek may get a few more looks, and they remain good plays. Riley Cooper (broken collarbone) also remains out. Quick rookie Damaris Johnson figures to start, but he's not worth playing, especially since head coach Andy Reid said that he plans to "mix and match" at receiver. Jason Avant should remain in the slot, at least, and could be a desperate flex solution for those in pretty deep leagues; QB Michael Vick has a rapport with him.
