The Philadelphia Eagles defense did not do much in a Week 2 loss against the San Francisco 49ers. The Eagles allowed 17 points without recording a single sack or a turnover, resulting in one single fantasy point in standard scoring formats. Given the struggles of the Eagles offense in this one, the defense ended up on the field a lot and could have actually struggled much more, so the one point as opposed to negative points might be a welcome sight. Still, while they've improved significantly from last season, the Eagles defense is still not an every-week starting option in the majority of fantasy formats.
Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott only had two kicking attempts in Week 2 and made half of them, connecting on a 45-yard field goal. He didn't attempt an extra point and missed his other field-goal try, a 47-yard kick that was blocked. Elliott struggled for most of last season and plays on a team that looks like it might not have the strongest of offenses, making him a waiver wire bye-week filler, at best. Most leagues will have better starters available to stream each week.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz made only one catch in a Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, gaining just six yards. Ertz was targeted twice in a game where Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts completed only 12 passes. It was a poor performance by the entire Philly offense and especially by the passing game. They'll hope for better results on Monday Night Football in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys. Ertz is clearly operating as the TE2 on a team that should see most of its success on the ground. It's tough to have Ertz on a fantasy roster at this point.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor only came up with five yards in a rough Week 2 performance against the San Francisco 49ers. Reagor was targeted twice and actually ended up tied for the team lead with two catches, but he only got the five yards total. In a game where quarterback Jalen Hurts completed only 12 passes, none of the Eagles expected pass catchers did much of anything on the field. Week 3 might be more of an offensive shootout as the Eagles take on the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football.
Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver DeVonta Smith was targeted seven times in Week 2 but only made two catches, gaining just 16 yards. Smith led the team with his seven targets and actually ended up tied for the team lead with the two catches. It was a rough game for the Eagles offense in general, but especially for the passing game. Smith was still clearly utilized as the team's WR1 though, so he should have some much bigger fantasy performances coming up, perhaps in Week 3's Monday Night Football contest against the Dallas Cowboys.
