Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts finished as a top-10 fantasy QB in 2021 despite an uneven performance, and it's not far-fetched to think that he can finish as a top-five fantasy QB in 2022 now that wide receiver A.J. Brown is on the team. Hurts thinks he'll benefit from having the same offensive scheme and play-caller for the first time since high school, and the Eagles should pass the ball more and run more plays than they did last year. The 23-year-old's rushing prowess gives him a high fantasy ceiling and a high floor, and his numbers should improve in his second full season as the starter as long as he can avoid injuries.
Philadelphia Eagles offensive guard Isaac Seumalo (foot) said that he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from a Lisfranc foot injury that ended his season early last year. Seumalo played in just three games in 2021 before suffering his foot injury, and he played in just nine games in 2020. The 28-year-old should be the Eagles starting right guard in 2022 if he's fully healthy heading into Week 1 of the regular season. Seumalo was originally a third-round selection by the Eagles in 2016 out of Oregon State, and he's played in 64 games (43 starts) in his six seasons in the NFL.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end J.J. Arcega-Whiteside added 12 pounds this offseason as he transitions from wide receiver to tight end this year. The Eagles list him at 6-foot-2, 237 pounds after he was listed at 225 pounds last year. The 25-year-old was drafted as a receiver in the second round in 2019 out of Stanford, but he has barely had an impact in Philadelphia's offense in his three NFL seasons. In 40 career games (seven starts) so far in his career, Arcega-Whiteside has 16 receptions on 35 targets for 290 yards and one touchdown. It's an intriguing position switch, but Dallas Goedert is the clear tight end to roster in fantasy for the Eagles.
Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen said that he will continue to call the offensive plays in 2022. Head coach Nick Sirianni said the midseason change last year played a vital role in their offensive turnaround. The Eagles came out of the gates trying to throw the ball, and it didn't work very well. Once they committed to the running game, their offensive opened up down the stretch. If Steichen continues to utilize a run-heavy approach, it could be bad news for new No. 1 receiver A.J. Brown's fantasy ceiling, but quarterback Jalen Hurts should continue to thrive with his legs.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Quez Watkins doesn't see his role changing at all despite the addition of A.J. Brown. "We're all good guys, we're all going to compete, we're all going to do our part. My role is not going to change -- I'm going to continue to do what I do," Watkins said. The 23-year-old improved in his second NFL season last year, catching 43 passes for 647 yards and one touchdown in 17 games (12 starts). But the Eagles finished first in rushing last year, and the addition of Brown bumps Watkins to third on the receiving depth chart. Watkins' speed and ability to play in the slot will help him in this improving offense, but he'll have to hold off Zach Pascal in order to be fantasy relevant on a weekly basis.
