• Gio Bernard resuscitates as hurry-up back, scores
    Giovani Bernard rushed 13 times for 44 yards and a touchdown in Tampa's Wild Card win over Philadelphia, adding five catches for 39 yards on seven targets.

    Advice: Bernard inserted immediately on the game's first drive as Tampa ran some hurry-up offense, and scored the game's first touchdown. Most of his rushing volume came with Tampa trying to end the game after they went up 31-0, as he had 13 touches on the final four drives of the game. It's hard to understand if Bernard will be a legitimate threat to Leonard Fournette if Fournette is cleared for the Divisional Round. But if Fournette sits, Bernard has some legitimate upside.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 12 minutes ago

  • Vaughn splits load in TB backfield, scores in win
    Ke'Shawn Vaughn rushed 17 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in Tampa's Wild Card win over Philadelphia, adding two catches for nine receiving yards on his only two targets.

    Advice: Vaughn was the main back on running plays, but split the total workload fairly evenly with Giovanni Bernard. The actual carries were pretty uninspiring, as Vaughn ran for 17 yards on his first carry of the game and averaged 2.25 YPC afterwards. To be fair, some of those were goal-line carries. Vaughn will be a volume-based DFS play in the divisional round if Leonard Fournette isn't cleared for it.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 19 minutes ago

    Tom Brady completed 29-of-37 passes for 271 yards and two touchdowns in Tampa's 31-15 Wild Card win over Philadelphia.

    Advice: Brady had 159 passing yards before halftime and piled on with a 36-yard touchdown to Mike Evans to go up 31-0. He did take four sacks with Tristan Wirfs (ankle) and Ryan Jensen dealing with injuries. Those injuries are slightly concerning for next week.

  • Eagles continue using Reagor for some reason
    Jalen Reagor caught 1-of-3 targets for two yards in Philadelphia's Wild Card loss to Tampa.

    Advice: Not that there was much chance of them catching the Bucs, but Reagor’s muffed punt down 17-0 officially ended any drama. Reagor’s season-high for receiving yards was 57 against a Washington team that was missing roughly 20 players to the COVID-19 list. If he wasn’t a first-round pick, he likely wouldn’t be on an NFL roster heading into Year 3. He’s off all but the deepest dynasty radars at this point. NBCSportsEDGE.com 48 minutes ago

    Quez Watkins caught 2-of-7 targets for 35 yards in Philadelphia's Wild Card loss to Tampa.

    Advice: He was overshot on a deep would-be touchdown while wide open at the end of the third quarter. A couple of deep-ball hauls in Week 2 and a great preseason had Watkins on the deep sleeper radar, but he mostly settled into being the deep wideout on a team that doesn’t throw deep. His only touchdown of the season came in a meaningless Week 18 with Gardner Minshew under center. In year three of his rookie deal, he’ll remain someone to dream on entering 2022.

  • Smith ends frustrating campaign with standard 4/60
    DeVonta Smith caught 4-of-11 targets for 60 yards in Philadelphia's Wild Card loss to Tampa, adding a two-point conversion.

    Advice: The two-point conversion was truly a feat as he caught a dart from Jalen Hurts after Hurts ran about 40 horizonal yards. He had another nine-yard catch negated due to holding, and was wide open on one of Hurts' picks after Jamel Dean fell down. After drawing at least seven targets in five of his first seven games, the Eagles changed the offense entirely in the middle of the season and Smith was completely frozen out. He cracked seven targets just one time in the last 10 games of the season and became mostly touchdown-or-bust. There will be plenty of helium for the second-year wideout, who looked really good when he was a major part of the offense. It’s hard to believe his role can live up to the fantasy hype without adjustments to this offense. NBCSportsEDGE.com 54 minutes ago

  • Goedert leads Eagles with 92 receiving yards
    Dallas Goedert caught 6-of-12 targets for 92 yards in Philadelphia's Wild Card loss to Tampa Bay.

    Advice: While he did drop a wide-open target in the second quarter, most of Goedert's misses were well out of his range as Jalen Hurts' accuracy was shaky most of the day. Goedert’s fantasy season took off after Zach Ertz was dealt to Arizona following Week 6. Goedert had five 70-plus receiving yard games over the rest of the season and was the de facto No. 1 option for the Eagles passing game. There were only two touchdowns throughout that sequence, but Goedert is squarely on the TE1 radar entering the 2022 season. NBCSportsEDGE.com 58 minutes ago

  • Gainwell leads PHI backfield: 55 total yards, TD
    Kenneth Gainwell rushed one time for six yards in Philadelphia's Wild Card loss to Tampa Bay, adding five catches for 49 yards and a receiving touchdown. 

    Advice: Gainwell didn't touch the ball until it was 17-0 Tampa Bay, but parlayed Philadelphia's screen game into a big yards as the Eagles couldn't get much going on downfield. While he was a surprisingly heavy component in Philadelphia’s backfield early in the season, Gainwell fell out of favor as a pure runner with the coaching staff. After the first couple of games of the season, Gainwell only had more than five carries in a meaningless Week 18 and two major blowouts of the Lions and Jets. In the second year of his rookie contract in 2022, Gainwell will be on the sleeper radar in PPR because he clearly took hold of that role for the Eagles.

    Jordan Howard didn't receive a carry in Philadelphia's Wild Card loss to Tampa, but he did catch his only target for seven yards. 

    Advice: Carried all offseason by the Eagles, Howard was able to pop in as a decent fill-in back as dictated by Philadelphia’s injury and/or COVID-19 circumstances. Howard will be an unrestricted free agent of the “can’t play on passing downs” class. It wouldn’t be surprising if he wound up back with the Eagles as they are clearly the current NFL team that values him the most. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 1:22 pm

    Boston Scott took his only carry for 34 yards and a touchdown in Philadelphia's Wild Card round loss to Tampa, adding a one-yard catch on his only target.

    Advice: Classic Boston Scott this year, as somehow he emerged from the chaos with his eight touchdown of the 2021 season. Frozen almost entirely out of the backfield for the first six weeks of the season, Scott started four of the last 11 games after the staff decided to throttle back on Kenneth Gainwell’s usage.

  • Miles Sanders held under 30 total yards vs. TB
    Miles Sanders rushed seven times for 16 yards in Philadelphia's Wild Card loss to Tampa, adding three catches for 12 yards on three targets.

    Advice: Sanders actually had a 14-yard carry in this game, but Tampa stacked the box and dared Jalen Hurts to throw them out of the look, so he mixed in several carries that lost yards. Sanders missed his standard couple of games with injuries, but largely lost value because he didn’t score a touchdown all regular season. He had more red zone carries than Boston Scott (20 to 19) and was out-touchdowned seven-nothing by Scott. Heading into the final year of his rookie deal, Sanders will enter the offseason at the top of the backfield pecking order, but he’s unlikely to be more than an RB2 without a major change around the Eagles this offseason.

  • Hurts stymied by Tampa in Wild Card weekend loss
    Jalen Hurts completed 23-of-43 passes for 258 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Philadelphia's 31-15 Wild Card loss to Tampa Bay, adding eight carries for 39 rushing yards.

    Advice: Hurts’ interception near the end of the first half was devastating and it was joined by a few other near-picks as he looked reluctant to throw downfield. He had just 88 passing yards at halftime and didn’t lead Philadelphia to a single point until Tampa had a 31-0 lead. The Eagles quarterback was a fantasy godsend, as the doubt about his ability to keep his job status put him into easy-to-attain territory and his rushing upside hit QB6 by average points per game. It’s going to be hard to ignore this game when evaluating his ability to be a starter going forward, and he enters the offseason on thin ice even if he’s a valuable fantasy asset.

Although, he described the protection as nothing elaborate and says he's able to catch passes. It shouldn't be a surprise if Sanders has a more limited role than usual, particularly in the passing game.

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jalen Hurts will play "few snaps, if any" in Week 18 against the Cowboys. 

    Advice: Probably we won't see Hurts in Week 18. He's struggled through an ankle injury for nearly a month, and has rushed less frequently with the balky ankle. Gardner Minshew will likely get the majority of snaps for the Eagles in their final regular season game.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Saturday, 1:57 pm

  • Goedert, Scott, Howard remain on COVID-19 list
    Dallas Goedert, Boston Scott, and Jordan Howard are among Eagles players who remained on the reserve/COVID-19 list and won't play in Week 18. 

    Advice: The Eagles will mostly play second and third stringers on Saturday night against Dallas in what it essentially a meaningless game. Without Howard and Scott, Kenneth Gainwell and Jason Huntley will be the only active Philadelphia running backs. Tyree Jackson is expected to be the team's main pass-catching tight end with Goedert out. Godspeed to those making single-game DFS lineups for this matchup.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Saturday, 1:54 pm

  • PHI beat: Hurts' ankle injury affecting his play
    The Athletic's Bo Wulf said Jalen Hurts' ankle injury has "affected his style of play" in recent weeks. 

    Advice: It's among the reasons Hurts probably won't play much Saturday against Dallas. Hurts, dealing with the nagging ankle issue that has limited him at practice for weeks, had just two rushing attempts in Week 16 against the Giants and seven rushes in Week 17 against the Football Team. Hurts has averaged 9.27 rushes per game in 2021. Look for Gardner Minshew to get most of the Eagles snaps against the Cowboys while the Eagles rest Hurts for a postseason run. Third-stringer Reid Sinnett could also see some snaps against Dallas.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Saturday, 12:16 pm

  • Ke'Shawn Vaughn (ribs) left off Friday report
    Ke'Shawn Vaughn (ribs) will play Week 18 against the Panthers. 

    Advice: Unsurprisingly given he practiced in full all week, Vaughn was not given a game designation on the final injury report. With Ronald Jones (ankle) already ruled out, Vaughn will likely form a committee with Le'Veon Bell. Reportedly the preferred option on passing downs, Bell could be poised to get the better side of that committee, but Vaughn has some DFS appeal in a game the Bucs should be able to win.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Friday, 4:35 pm

  • James Conner (heel) questionable against Seahawks
    James Conner (heel) is questionable for Week 18 against the Seahawks.

    Advice: The Cardinals can win the NFC East with a win, so with Chase Edmonds out for this game, Conner will likely play if close to healthy. Conner has substantial upside with the backfield to himself, against a Seahawks defense that teams have run on fairly easily. The Seahawks are also vulnerable through the air, so there could be short TD opportunities if Kyler Murray is clicking in this game. Conner looks like a high-ceiling RB2.

  • Eagles rule out Sanders (hand) for Saturday
    Eagles ruled out RB Miles Sanders (hand) for Week 18's game against the Cowboys.

    Advice: It's not exactly unexpected given that Nick Sirianni led his Monday presser saying he hoped Sanders would be back in the Wild Card round. The Eagles have little to play for on Saturday. With a COVID-19 wave sending many of the backs to the reserve/COVID list, Kenneth Gainwell may get the RB1 role against Dallas.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Thursday, 1:05 pm
