The Eagles have some key injuries on their offense, but with the season almost halfway over they have to start getting it done on offense by any means necessary. The Birds will not have starters such as Miles Sanders or Zach Ertz available on Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys, but they have some solid options to fill in for the time being. Here's an outlook of the Eagles in fantasy football this weekend:
Carson Wentz - Start
Wentz has been playing better as of late, but he is still not the Wentz of old. Still, even though he has struggled early in games, his comebacks have helped him stack up fantasy points, not to mention his ability to run this year has helped out too. Wentz is averaging just under 22 fantasy points per game so far in 2020. His turnover troubles this season have ultimately made him a QB2 this season, but this week is different. The Eagles will be able to put up points against this atrocious Cowboys defense that hasn’t found a way to stop any offense this season. Look for Wentz to heavily feature Travis Fulgham, Richard Rodgers and Boston Scott in the passing game this week as the Eagles will score multiple touchdowns.
Boston Scott- Start
Scott will be a solid start while Miles Sanders remains out with an injury. Scott maximizing his opportunity last week and isn't looking to slow down. Scott had 12 carries for 46 yards and 3 receptions for 46 yards and a touchdown against the Giants last Thursday. The Eagles continue to be able to put points up late in games, which is a big upside for starting Scott. This week we should see a lot of Scott because the Cowboys defense has the worst run defense in the NFL. Scott could see some end zone action this week, and he should be in your fantasy lineup.
Richard Rodgers - Start
Rodgers has played well while filling in for Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert. He was the top receiver for the Eagles last week, registering six receptions on eight targets for 85 yards. Wentz used Rodgers as much as he could, and this week we could see a similar stat line. Rodgers may even be targeted more against the struggling Dallas defense, so he should be in your lineups if you were lucky enough to claim him off the waiver wire.
Travis Fulgham - Start
Fulgham is starting to seem like a virtual start every week. He has been the star of this offense, and Wentz has given him a steady amount of targets each week since his emergence in Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers. Last week Fulgham had five receptions on 11 targets for 73 yards. He has shown that even if he doesn’t score a touchdown, he can still get you double-digit fantasy points. Fulgham is a must-start this week against a week Cowboys secondary.
To sum this up, if you have any Eagles players on your roster, this is the week you need to have them starting on your fantasy roster.
