Projected Win Total
The Eagles’ over/under currently sits at 9.5, after they went 9-7 last season. At its core, Philly is essentially the same. They get healthier and added a couple playmakers on both sides of the ball, which is why the win total is set where it is.
Strength of Schedule
SOS is measured by calculating the fantasy points allowed by each team’s opponents to determine who has the easiest and most difficult fantasy schedules (rank #1 has the easiest schedule).

Carson Wentz is back healthy and is expected to lead this talented receiving corps. Wentz is currently being drafted as QB10, after he averaged 22.0 fantasy points last season, which was only the 19th-most. For wide receivers, Alshon Jeffery will be his top option. He is being drafted as WR29, after finishing as WR25 in 13 games last season. While he is undervalued right now, we basically have to figure he’ll miss a couple games, which complicates matters. DeSean Jackson is back in Philly and is being drafted as WR50. He’s not what he once was, but the guy can still burn. Finishing as WR43 in 12 games last season, there is no reason why DJax can’t do the same this year. Nelson Agholor is going as WR77, but will likely not be much more than a bye week fill-in.
The top fantasy player on this offense is tight end Zach Ertz, who is the consensus TE2. He finished at that spot last season, and it’s tough to imagine he could fall further than TE3 this year. Second-year tight end Dallas Goedert will back him up. While Goedert is tremendously talented, the opportunity just isn’t there, as long as Ertz stays healthy. He was TE20 last season and could see his targets rise a little, but his current ADP (TE23) feels about right.
The Eagles have been committed to the run ever since Doug Pederson showed up. However, the backfield is also a revolving door. Last season, no running back saw more more than 30 percent of the snaps. The player with the biggest share was Wendell Smallwood, who may not make this team. Jordan Howard figures to get early down work, at least to begin the season. He finished as RB20 in Chicago last season, but is being selected as RB35 this year. Being selected a couple spots ahead of him is rookie Miles Sanders, at RB35. He is a better all-around player than Howard and possesses a higher ceiling. After those two, Corey Clement and Darren Sproles play a similar, change-of-pace, receiving back role. Neither player needs to be drafted, but given the right matchup, they will be viable bye week options.
