Eagles WR Shelton Gibson (wrist, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 15.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 15. Wentz is not expected to face the Rams. Nick Foles’s productivity has been all over the place in eight starts since 2017, including the playoffs. He was obviously great in last year’s postseason, but in two starts this year, he had a bad game against Atlanta (117 passing yards, one interception) before a pretty productive game against the Buccaneers (334 yards and a touchdown). In the seven starts where he attempted at least 30 passes, he averaged 260 yards and 1.71 touchdowns against just 0.43 interceptions, but owners are warned against expecting too much in a tough spot against a surging Rams defense. Still, if he can avoid a multi-interception meltdown, he could have a big fantasy day in garbage time.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) missed practice again Thursday. Wentz is out this week and maybe longer with a fractured vertebra in his back. Nick Foles’s productivity has been all over the place in eight starts since 2017, including the playoffs. He was obviously great in last year’s postseason, but in two starts this year, he had a bad game against Atlanta (117 passing yards, one interception) before a pretty productive game against the Buccaneers (334 yards and a touchdown).

Eagles QB Carson Wentz has fractured vertebra

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, "A recent CT scan on Carson Wentz’s back revealed a fractured vertebrae that, if allowed time to rest, would fully heal without further expected issues, sources tell ESPN. There will be a continued evaluation to determine if continuing to play this year will make injury worse."

Fantasy Impact:

We already knew Wentz was going to miss time, but this seems to confirm the injury is more than just a simple pull or sprain. As long as Wentz is out, the entire offense save for Zach Ertz takes a big hit.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) did not practice Wednesday. Wentz is not expected to face the Rams. Nick Foles’s productivity has been all over the place in eight starts since 2017, including the playoffs. He was obviously great in last year’s postseason, but in two starts this year, he had a bad game against Atlanta (117 passing yards, one interception) before a pretty productive game against the Buccaneers (334 yards and a touchdown).

Eagles QB Carson Wentz unlikely to play Sunday night

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, "Carson Wentz, dealing with a back issue, is not expected to play this week, sources say. Depending on the result, given the time of year, Wentz may not play again in 2018. The team is still gathering info on his health."

Fantasy Impact:

The timing couldn't be worse for fantasy owners. With Nick Foles a poor option, you could look to Lamar Jackson, Josh Allen or even Derek Carr as options. Give our Streaming Quarterbacks and Waiver Wire Watch articles a read for other potential options that may be available in your league.

As far as the Eagles receivers go, aside from Zach Ertz, nobody has been particularly compelling of late anyway, so this doesn't change much on that front. Golden Tate and Alshon Jeffery remain in the low-end WR2/WR3 discussion and Ertz, who saw 23 targets and averaged 15.1 PPR points with Foles as the starter the first two weeks of the season, stays as a top option at tight end.

From John Paulsen: "Foles’s productivity has been all over the place in eight starts since 2017, including the playoffs. He was obviously great in last year’s postseason, but in two starts this year, he had a bad game against Atlanta (117 passing yards, one interception) before a pretty productive game against the Buccaneers (334 yards and a touchdown). In the seven starts since 2017 where he attempted at least 30 passes, he averaged 260 yards and 1.71 touchdowns against just 0.43 interceptions, but owners are warned against expecting too much in a tough spot against a surging Rams defense. The magic seems to be gone from this offense, though the Eagles may be forced to throw the ball a ton if/when they fall behind early against the Rams."

Eagles place RB Corey Clement on IR

Eagles have placed Corey Clement and Josh Sweat on injured reserve.

Related players: Josh Adams, Wendell Smallwood, Boston Scott

Fantasy Impact:

Clement was just starting to show signs of life after being hurt much of this season. Allen should see most of the early-down touches with Smallwood now seeing a role as a change of pace and passing down back. The team recently sign Scott from the Saints who is also more of a pass-catching option. The Eagles just don't seem to consistently run the ball enough to make any of these RBs must-have options right now.

Eagles expected to sign RB Boston Scott

The Eagles are expected to sign RB Boston Scott off the Saints practice squad in the wake of Corey Clement’s knee injury, sources say.

Related players: Josh Adams, Wendell Smallwood

Fantasy Impact:

Scott could take on more of a pass-catching role with Clement seemingly going to miss time after suffering a knee injury against Dallas.

Eagles RB Josh Adams (shoulder) took full practice reps again Friday. He was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go for Week 14.

Thursday, December 6, 2018, 7:04pm

Eagles RB Josh Adams (shoulder) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. It’s a new injury for Adams, who was on the IR last week with a hip injury. He should be able to play against Dallas.

Redskins turn to Mark Sanchez at QB after Colt McCoy breaks fibula

Tuesday, December 4, 2018, 10:54am

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Washington Redskins lost another quarterback. They lost another game, too. And a season that started to look promising a month ago now appears headed for a tough finish.

Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy broke his right fibula Monday in a 28-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, ending his season in only his second start this year. He's also the second Redskins starting quarterback to suffer such a fate. Alex Smith broke his fibula and tibia in Week 11.

Related players Mark Sanchez

Fantasy Impact:

Sanchez did not look good for the most part against the Eagles, but in reality he's had limited time to prepare and only learned a limited amount of plays. The Redskins will have to bring in another QB this week to backup Sanchez.

Eagles RBs Josh Adams, Darren Sproles ACTIVE for MNF

Monday, December 3, 2018, 6:58pm

Eagles Inactives
LB Jordan Hicks
DB Avonte Maddox
OL Jordan Mailata
CB Jalen Mills (foot)
OL Matt Pryor
QB Nate Sudfeld
OL Chance Warmack.

Related players: Josh Adams, Darren Sproles

Fantasy Impact:

Sproles is active for the first time since Week 1 and should be used in a limited role in passing situations. Adams (hip) is also active and should get a bulk of the work. He's coming off 22 carries last week against the Giants and the Eagles have said they wanted to give him more chances.

MNF: Eagles RB Josh Adams added to injury report Saturday

Saturday, December 1, 2018, 4:54pm

Zach Berman - [Full Article]

Josh Adams was added to the injury report with a hip injury. He’s QUESTIONABLE for Monday.

NBC Sports Philly reports Adams is expected to play.

Fantasy Impact:

It's never good when a player is added to the injury report on the final day of the practice week. If you have Josh Adams in your starting lineup for a crucial match this week, move him to your FLEX if you can and/or considering keeping a bench spot open, in case we do not find out about his status until pre-game Monday. Corey Clement would be next in line for early down work, but Darren Sproles is also expected to return this week.
