Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham to get more snaps Saturday

ESPN - [Full Article]

Eagles HC Doug Pederson could use a receiver or two to separate from the pack. Dorial Green-Beckham, who was traded to the Eagles by the Titans last week, is expected to see an increase in snaps from a week ago and will get some looks with the first team, per the head coach.

"He's not where you want him to be, obviously, with the terminology of the offense," Pederson said. "That's why we're going to keep it very simple and keep it to one position for him as a receiver. Put a little package together, two, three, four plays, and just let him go play. And then as he understands that, we can expand the role because he's coming in basically right here at the end of camp trying to learn a system."

Fantasy Impact: 

Eagles WRs have been unimpressive so far in camp and in preseason games. Jordan Matthews hasn't played because of a bruised knee. In may take some time but the Eagles are hoping Green-Beckham can be that guy to step up on the outside. The story said Pederson did go out of his way to say Nelson Agholor has stood out the last few practices but outside of that it's been a quiet camp for this position.
