Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (rib) is considered week-to-week with a rib displacement and his status for Week 2 is in question, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Fantasy Tip: The rib is not broken or cracked, but it appears there is a good chance Ertz will miss the Eagles' Week 2 Monday Night Football showdown against the Chicago Bears. Preseason star Trey Burton was inactive in Week 1 due to a calf injury, so Philadelphia could be forced to rely on Brent Celek and find some help outside of the organization if Ertz and Burton don't make significant progress this week.

Philadelphia Eagles rookie QB Carson Wentz is expected to be inactive for Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
"It's hard right now to look down the road, but if we had to play this week, Carson would be down. He'd be the third quarterback. He'd be deactivated. That's probably the direction we're heading," Pederson told reporters.
Fantasy Tip: This has been the expectation all along, but Peterson appears to be confirming that Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel will start the season atop the depth chart. The Eagles do have a Week 4 bye, so it is possible they could turn to Wentz if they start 0-3, although that appears unlikely. Nevertheless, Bradford's hold on the starting job will likely be tenuous all season long, making him a low-end QB2 in fantasy at best.

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 09:23:05 -0800
With the arrival of new Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, the Eagles are expected to switch to the West Coast offense that doesn't require as much blocking for its tight ends.
Fantasy Tip: Ertz's contract extension in Philly is a good sign that Pederson wants him to be a big part of the offense moving forward. Brent Celek remains in town, too, which hurts Ertz's ceiling, but with a lack of blocking responsibilities in a new offense, Ertz could easily reach TE1 levels more weeks than not.

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson is expected to be the new head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source.

As a former NFL quarterback, Sam Bradford is likely to benefit from Pederson's potential hiring, assuming the soon-to-be free agent returns to the team in 2016.
