Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said that he doesn't think tight end Zach Ertz (ankle) will be ready to return in Week 12 against the Seahawks on Monday night. Ertz had been trending in the right direction earlier this week, but it appears that the Eagles will wait at least another week. The 30-year-old from Stanford has been out since Week 6 with a high-ankle sprain, so the Eagles could ease him back into the fold alongside Dallas Goedert whenever he does return. Ertz has 24 catches for 178 yards and a touchdown in six games this year and should be stashed in all formats. Hopefully, fantasy managers will have him for the playoffs in a few weeks. Meanwhile, Goedert remains a strong TE1 play, even though Seattle's defense has allowed just three touchdowns to the position this year.
The Philadelphia Eagles activated running back Corey Clement and defensive end Vinny Curry from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday. Clement and Curry should both be available for the team's Week 12 meeting with the Seahawks on Monday night. Clement has done very little this year, rushing the ball only 19 times for 68 yards and one touchdown in nine games. He also has four receptions for 18 yards. Clement hasn't been fantasy relevant at all in single-year formats and will be depth behind starter Miles Sanders and Boston Scott against Seattle. Curry will return and try and help slow down Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. The 32-year-old has just seven tackles and two sacks in five games for Philly this year.
Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson (ankle) said that his 2020 season is over after dealing with a serious ankle issue. Although the Eagles offensive line has been an excellent run-blocking unit this year, injuries are starting to take a toll on them. It was announced earlier on Friday that the team will also move Jason Peters, who is dealing with turf toe, to right guard and right tackle Jordan Mailata will shift over to quarterback Carson Wentz's blind side. With Johnson now done for the year, that could mean that rookie Jack Driscoll will be tasked with starting at right tackle. The Eagles lost starting left tackle Andre Dillard to an injury earlier this season. This could be the nail in the coffin for an already disjointed Philly offense heading into a Monday night showdown with the Seahawks in Week 12.
Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Jason Peters (toe) will be moving to right guard and Jordan Mailata will be moving back to left tackle for the team's Week 12 game against the Seahawks on Monday night, according to sources. Peters has been giving it his all but has been playing through turf toe on his point foot on his left foot, and it was aggravated in the Week 11 loss to the Browns. The Eagles initially brought the 38-year-old Peters back to play right guard, but they eventually moved him when left tackle Andre Dillard suffered a season-ending injury. Peters has started six games at left tackle this year. Mailata, a seventh-round pick in 2018, started four games earlier this year at left tackle when Peters was on Injured Reserve. Despite the injuries to the O-line, Philly's run blocking has been top notch this season.
The Philadelphia Eagles Defense is not a recommended option for Week 12 fantasy lineups. With a matchup against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football on tap, the Eagles could easily find themselves in a shootout with Russell Wilson and the Seahawks to close out Week 12. The Eagles defense has had its moments this season, finishing as a top-nine fantasy defense five times, but then also finishing outside of the top-20 five times. This week is much more likely to be of the "outside of the top-20" variety.
