Eagles | DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews to get FB

Sat, 23 Jan 2016 15:55:31 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RBs DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews are expected to have company in the backfield in 2016, as head coach Doug Pederson has liked to have a fullback on the roster and use him to block in the running game.

Fantasy Tip: Murray might especially benefit from a more power running game attack, similar to his last years in Dallas. He could be a big-time fantasy sleeper, as some stay away from him from a lack of production in 2015 under the old regime. Mathews will once again be a solid handcuff and mid- to late-round fantasy pick if and when Murray goes down.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews to sit about six weeks

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 11:12:50 -0800

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (groin) is expected to be sidelined around six weeks after he recently underwent surgery, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews probably will be able to participate in some of the offseason workouts but will not be rushed back on the field. Mathews probably will have a similar role on offense next season and could be a middle- to late-round pick in most leagues.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews undergoes surgery

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 10:19:33 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (groin) recently underwent groin surgery, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews probably will miss some of the offseason workouts but should be ready for training camp if he does not suffer a setback. Mathews finished the 2015 season with 539 rushing yards and 146 receiving yards with seven total touchdowns. He may have a similar role next season and could be a middle- to late-round option in most drafts.

Eagles | DeMarco Murray plays eight snaps

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 05:22:15 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray played just eight snaps (12% of the offense) Sunday, Dec. 20. RB Darren Sproles played 30 snaps (47%), and Ryan Mathews played 26 (41%).

Fantasy Tip: Murray can't be used in fantasy right now. Sproles and Mathews splitting the work hurts each other's value, but they are decent flex options.

Eagles | DeMarco Murray says he's fresh

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 09:38:13 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray has seen his role in the offense reduced drastically the last two weeks, and through 12 games this year he has just 174 carries compared to 287 rushes through 12 games with the Dallas Cowboys in 2014. As a result, Murray said it's the freshest he's been this time of year. Despite voicing his displeasure to owner Jeff Lurie two weeks ago, Murray said he's happy and committed to returning to the Eagles next year. Murray had 11 carries last week to RB Ryan Mathews' 13 and RB Darren Sproles' seven.

Fantasy Tip: It's clear now that Murray ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) isn't the lead back in Philly anymore, and Chip Kelly is going with a three-headed committee in the backfield. That makes it really tough to rely on any one rusher in this backfield, especially in Week 15 against the top-five defense of the Arizona Cardinals.

Eagles | Darren Sproles leads team in rushing

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 14:29:18 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles rushed for 41 yards and one touchdown on seven carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14. RB Ryan Mathews rushed for 38 yards on 13 carries, while RB DeMarco Murray rushed for 34 yards on 11 carries.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles spread the carries between the three runners but none had great success on the ground. All three probably will continue to receive carries with Sproles possibly being the most value in terms of fantasy because of his ability to produce in the running and passing game.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews probable to go

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 09:11:05 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion, groin) practiced fully Friday, Dec. 11, and he's probable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) is a risky flex grab against the Buffalo Bills on FantasyScore.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews back to full practice

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 12:17:50 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion, groin) was back to a full practice Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Mathews ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) will finally return to action in Philly's backfield, further complicating the picture with DeMarco Murray ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Darren Sproles ($3,600, 7.2% of cap). In Mathews' first game back, this situation could easily shape up to be a large headache for fantasy owners against a strong run defense in the Buffalo Bills.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews limited

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 11:20:21 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion, groin) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) could be a flex option on FantasyScore against the Buffalo Bills with DeMarco Murray seemingly being phased out.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews plans on playing

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 11:55:59 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) said he plans to play Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills provide a favorable matchup for Mathews ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) this week, but Darren Sproles ($3,600, 7.2%) and DeMarco Murray ($4,800, 9.6%) also figure to be involved as usual. It might be best to consider other options at running back.
