Eagles to keep Lane Johnson at RT

There was some talk of shifting RT Lane Johnson to the left side of the Eagles' O-Line in the aftermath of Jason Peters' season-ending injury, but that seems to have been nothing but talk. It's also a sigh of relief to Johnson, who prefers to man the RT position in Philadelphia.

“I think I’m better on the right for now. I haven’t had any reps over there. Not to say I can’t do it, but as far as what I’ve been playing,” said Johnson

Fantasy Impact: 

Lane Johnson remaining at his more natural position is a boon to QB Carson Wentz. As noted by Joe Paeno, Wentz averaged 4.17 more fantasy points per game last season when Johnson played (19.28 with, 15.11 without). Wentz, who is averaging 21.7 fantasy points per game this season, is our No. 1 ranked QB of Week 8 in a great matchup versus a 49ers defense allowing 20.8 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.
