Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts has been working out with teammate DeSean Jackson. Hurts posted videos on his Instagram account on Monday, showing the second-rounder working out in Florida with the veteran wide receiver. Jackson is recovering from core muscle surgery and Hurts is trying to impress his coaches after coach Doug Pederson (somewhat) recently said Hurts, "needs to learn and pick up our system." Hurts is expected to begin the season as the number three quarterback behind starter Carson Wentz and 2016 sixth-rounder Nate Sudfeld, but the Eagles certainly didn't spend a second round pick to draft a third string quarterback. Hurts may be a direct backup for the somewhat oft-injured Wentz, or he may end up seeing work in something more like a Taysom Hill role. There's a wide range of outcomes for Hurts this season and going forward.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders continues to see his fantasy stock rise heading into the 2020 campaign. In a recent interview with a local radio station, head coach Doug Pederson acknowledged the sophomore back's talent while also stating that he is the team's "No. 1" and "ready to carry the load." While there was little doubt regarding his enhanced role with the club moving forward, it does reaffirm his potential to exceed his current ADP expectations this season.
Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver Jalen Reagor was predicted to lead the Eagles wide receivers in receptions and snaps by SiriusXM's Adam Caplan. It's a big prediction from a writer who has covered the Eagles for a while now. DeSean Jackson will serve as a deep threat but won't likely see huge volume, and Alshon Jeffery is recovering from a foot injury and is always an injury risk. It seems wild to say Reagor will be the top receiver on the team, but a look at the depth chart reveals that it may in fact end up being the case. Reagor is currently being drafted as a WR4/5 and could easily outperform that if Caplan's prediction is even close to correct.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert is OK after being sucker punched in a South Dakota restaurant. Goedert was taken to the hospital after the incident, but has since returned home and will be fine, according to a league source. Goedert finished ninth among tight ends with 58 receptions last season and was 10th at the position with 607 yards. The Eagles played two tight-end formations a league-leading 52 percent of the time last season. While that number will certainly come down with their receivers healthy, Goedert has proven to be too talented to just be a backup for Zach Ertz. Goedert is a streamable TE2 in fantasy but has huge upside if something were to happen to Ertz.
Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver Jalen Reagor, who was selected 21st overall in the first round in April, is likely to take a back seat to DeSean Jackson in 2020, so the rookie might see most of his work out of the slot. Reagor was one of only two college players with at least four deep receiving touchdowns in each of the last three seasons. Pro Football Focus counts just 240 snaps from the slot for Reagor over the last two years, however, so his production could be limited if all of the team's receivers can manage to stay healthy this season. But D-Jax and Alshon Jeffery are far from good bets to remain healthy all season long, so Reagor is a fine upside bench stash at the tail end of fantasy drafts.
