Eagles WR Bryce Treggs could see bigger role

Bryce Treggs started his route with the opposing cornerback giving him six yards of space. By the time he caught Carson Wentz's pass nearly 50 yards down the field, he was five yards past the closest defender.

Treggs' 58-yard reception in the second quarter of the Eagles' 28-23 loss to the New York Giants was the longest by any Eagles receiver this season. It came in Treggs' first game in a Philadelphia uniform, and the Eagles expect to see more of that in the second half of the season.

"He was very excited to play, obviously," coach Doug Pederson said. "First time to be active. He had two big catches for us. Obviously the explosive play down the field. I think you'll see more of a role for him at least in the coming weeks."

Fantasy Impact:

The Eagles are struggling at the WR position and Treggs, although inexperienced, at least brings a deep-threat to the lineup and that paid off in his first game after the team released Josh Huff. Treggs may be worth monitoring if you're struggling for a WR but he can't really be trusted in lineups until we see more.

Everyone has been conditioned to expect the worse when Victor Cruz sustains an injury. But the Giants wide receiver got good news after having his injured right ankle examined on Monday.

"It's not bad," Cruz said on WFAN on Tuesday afternoon. "The doctors graded it a low-grade sprain to the ankle. I got an MRI and I have to stay on top of it. It is a little sore today, I'm not going to lie. But it's optimistic. Everything looks like it's going in the right direction. I just have to get through week, get through some good days of treatment and see how it feels."

Fantasy Impact:

Cruz suffered the injury when he made a 46-yard catch in the second quarter of Sunday's 28-23 win over the Eagles. Cruz "tweaked" his ankle when Philadelphia cornerback Leodis McKelvin landed on it while making the tackle from behind. As we stated in previous reports, Cruz is losing snaps to Roger Lewis and Dwayne Harris.

Brent Celek, who appeared to be in considerable pain on Sunday night, suffered a rib fracture in the loss to the Giants, head coach Doug Pederson said.

While Celek won’t practice on Wednesday, Pederson expects to have Celek available for this upcoming game against the Falcons at the Linc.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz finally targeted

Monday, November 7, 2016, 1:27pm

CSN Philly - [Full Article]

Week after week, Eagles QB Carson Wentz went into games focused on getting TE Zach Ertz the ball, and week after week, they failed to connect.

That finally ended Sunday, when Ertz had eight catches for 97 yards, the fifth-biggest game of his four-year career, in the Eagles’ 28-23 loss to the Giants at MetLife Stadium.

“Overall, it doesn't really matter how many times I touch the ball,” he said. “If we lose it’s all for nothing.

“I did think Carson (Wentz) and I took a step forward between the two of us. Which is good to see.”

Fantasy Impact:

Ertz had been a non-factor up to this week. He's still not trustworthy until we see more consistency, but for those struggling at the position Ertz may be worth a grab. The Eagles sure seemed to make it a point to target the TE in Week 9 but we have to see if that continues.

Rams RB Todd Gurley getting less work

Monday, November 7, 2016, 9:38am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Another week, another struggle for Todd Gurley.

The Los Angeles Rams' running back was held to 48 rushing yards in Sunday's 13-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers, marking the 15th time in the last 16 games he has been held below 100 yards.

Once again, he also didn't get the workload.

Gurley received only 12 carries in what was a close game throughout, two weeks after getting only 15 carries in a loss to the New York Giants and three weeks after getting only 14 carries in a loss to the Detroit Lions. Facing a Panthers defense that had allowed the NFL's fewest rushing yards per carry, Gurley got the ball on back-to-back snaps only once -- on the Rams' first drive of the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Down the stretch Benny Cunningham was on the field because he's what HC Jeff Fisher calls the team's two-minute RB, the story said. Since his 142-yard breakout first game, Gurley is averaging just 61 yards a game since then.

Giants WR Victor Cruz injures ankle

Victor Cruz's lone catch on Sunday was a costly one. The wide receiver made a 46-yard catch in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Eagles to set up the Giants' third touchdown. But Cruz sprained his ankle on the play and he has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Cruz's playing time had been limited on Sunday, as rookie Roger Lewis earned more playing time. Little-used receiver Dwayne Harris also was cutting into Cruz's playing time. Harris saw a handful of snaps in the slot in the first half.
