Weird BYE Week when you’re 3-0….good problem for Eagles to have…

I’m no stranger to weirdness, if you have followed my columns here over the past 9 years… This Week 4 Bye week is weird in that it comes at an illogical point in a long season. Ideally to me you’d want a Bye in Week 7 or Week 8—an optimum point in the season for your coaches to do a comprehensive re-eval of your entire personnel resources and your game plans. But no, it...

Philadelphia Eagles: Week three fantasy outlook

Teams with rookie quarterbacks are often best avoided when it comes to fantasy. However, Carson Wentz proved through two games that he’s capable of making accurate and deep throws. The bigger problem with using the Eagles in fantasy is the other part of the passing equation. The Eagles trounced the league in drops last year (37) with six more than the next highest offender.
