Eagles hope to have WR Mike Wallace return this year

NBC Sports Bay Area - [Full Article]

Eagles veteran wide receiver Mike Wallace is on injured reserve after fracturing his fibula in Week 2, but the Eagles are still holding out hope Wallace will be able to return this season.

"Hopefully, Mike's progressing and we get a chance to get him back here this season," Groh said.

Wallace wouldn't be allowed to return until Week 11 against the Saints, which could force the Eagles to make a decision sooner. Both Mack Hollins and Richard Rodgers, placed on IR before the start of the season, would be eligible to return before Wallace. And the team is allowed to bring back just two players from IR each season.

Fantasy Impact:

So if they get to a point when Hollins and Rodgers could return, the Eagles might have to try to determine if Wallace will be able to come back in Week 11. If he is, it would obviously be worth holding a spot for him. Without Wallace, the Eagles have lacked a consistent deep threat. The story added despite a big catch from Gibson, the Birds don't seem to want to expand his role.

Giants TE Evan Engram out for Thursday Night Football

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

CBS Sports reports Evan Engram will not play Thursday night against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact:

While Engram returned to practice on a limited basis this week, he wasn't able to get himself ready in time for the Thursday night game. It seems like he should be good to go for Week 7, at which time he will be a TE1 for the rest of the season. If somebody dropped him to the waiver wire, snag him now before it's too late.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette may sit out through Week 9 bye

Wednesday, October 10, 2018, 9:48pm

Florida Football Insiders - [Full Article]

A source has reportedly told Florida Football Insiders that, "because of the re-injury to the hamstring after only two games rest last time, and an upcoming trip to London to play the Eagles followed by a bye week, the Jags may consider sitting their top running back through the end of October."

Fantasy Impact:

This isn't exactly Adam Schefter reporting and hasn't been confirmed by a major media outlet, so hold off on hitting the panic button. If the report is correct, this would put TJ Yeldon in prime territory to continue to help your fantasy squad. He is the eighth highest scoring running back through five weeks in PPR leagues at 17.8 PPG. That puts him ahead of Kareem Hunt and David Johnson, among others. There is no reason to believe Yeldon will fall off any time soon, so don't be afraid to treat him as a low-end RB1.

Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring, out) did not practice Wednesday.

Wednesday, October 10, 2018, 7:46pm

Eagles RB Corey Clement (quadricep) practiced fully Wednesday. Clement was declared 100% ready to play on Thursday by head coach Doug Pederson. He came into the season ahead of Wendell Smallwood, but Smallwood has outperformed him this year. With Jay Ajayi out for the year, we’re expecting Clement to lead the backfield in a 55/45 touch split with Smallwood until Darren Sproles returns.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz (not injury related) practiced fully Wednesday. Wentz will be fine to face the Giants on Thursday night.

Eagles RB Darren Sproles out for Week 6

Wednesday, October 10, 2018, 6:04pm

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

Darren Sproles (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's game versus the Giants.

Fantasy Impact:

This isn't a big surprise, but does have an impact on Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement, who will battle it out for touches in Jay Ajayi's absence. Our own Jeff Miller had the following to say on the situation in this week's Waiver Wire Watch: "Before his quad injury, Clement was the clear backup to the IR-bound Jay Ajayi (ACL). A funny thing happened when he went down, though: Wendell Smallwood looked good. Better than Clement, even, at least in 2018. Considering Clement's Super Bowl breakout and the 2018 projection that earned him in many circles, the previously disappointing Smallwood's higher rate of success no doubt comes as a surprise. The question is whether or not Smallwood's recent success has allowed him to leapfrog Clement on the team's depth chart, since Clement was clearly ahead of Smallwood coming into the season. In the Eagles' Week 3 game where Clement was healthy and Ajayi was out, Smallwood was out-snapped 45 to 29 and out-touched 19 to 13 by Clement. Despite that, he outscored his backfield mate by 7.6 points and out-gained him 91 yards to 75. Doug Pederson announced that Clement is 100% ready for Week 6, so we should have a better idea of this backfield split on Thursday night. For now, we recommend Clement as the priority add, but if Smallwood is significantly cheaper, he's a good addition as well."

Shurmur: Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) will be 'full-speed' Tuesday

Tuesday, October 9, 2018, 12:03pm

Paul Schwartz on Twitter - [Full Article]

Pat Shurmur says Evan Engram “is gonna be out here full-speed today.” Hopes he can play vs. Eagles.

Fantasy Impact:

If Engram is full speed at practice today, it should mean he has a very good chance to play Thursday night at home against the Eagles. The Birds defense is struggling, so Engram could make for a nice play.

Eagles RB Corey Clement practices in full

Tuesday, October 9, 2018, 9:15am

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Running back Corey Clement (quadricep) was a full participant.

Related players: Wendell Smallwood

Fantasy Impact:

With Jay Ajayi lost for the season, the future workload is going to fall on Clement and Smallwood unless the Eagles make a move for a running back. Clement was active last week but only as an emergency option but appears good to go for Thursday night. It could be a close to even split between the two backs.

Giants TE Evan Engram has a chance to play Week 6

Monday, October 8, 2018, 6:50pm

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

Coach Pat Shurmur said TE Evan Engram (knee) has a chance to return for Thursday's game against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact:

Engram was listed as limited on the Giants' injury report Monday, marking the first time he would have been allowed to practice since spraining the MCL in his right knee Week 3. He'll take the practice field in some capacity Tuesday and Wednesday to get a gauge on whether an appearance is possible Thursday., the story said.
