Eagles hoping to keep Jake Elliott as kicker

Monday, November 20, 2017, 7:04pm

Philly.com - [Full Article]

The Eagles survived without a kicker throughout most of Sunday’s 37-9 win over the Dallas Cowboys, and they now begin a week when Jake Elliott’s health will be an ongoing question while he recovers from a concussion.

Elliott remains the team’s top option at kicker. They have a potential Plan B in former starter Caleb Sturgis, but they’re still maintaining hope that Elliott is healthy enough to play this Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Coach Doug Pederson didn’t answer whether there’s another option they’d consider.

Fantasy Impact:

Elliott is in the protocol so the team's hands are tied for now. Sturgis is eligible to be activated to the 53-man roster as one of the team's two designated to return provisions. Sturgis is getting himself back to where he was before his injury, according to the story. However, if the team activates Sturgis, they would need to burn an extra roster spot or move on from Elliott.

Scouting Report

Week 1 at Washington

Sturgis is a borderline top-12 kicking option for Week 1. Last season against Washington, he posted eight and 10 points against this divisional opponent. He also posted double-digit fantasy points in five road games last season.
