Week 5 PFF Grades

After a frustrating loss in Pittsburgh, the Eagles seem to have a new offensive star being born. Meanwhile, the usual suspects are at it again holding back the defense. Here's a look at how Pro Football Focus graded Eagles players in Week 5.



Offense:

Best Grade: WR Travis Fulgham, 93.0

This one seems obvious. After Sunday's game, anyone would be able to tell that Travis Fulgham had the best offensive performance on the team. Fulgham is on a completely different level than the other receivers on the Eagles. Fulgham's grade is the highest by any Eagles receiver since Desean Jackson's Week 14 performance against the Dallas Cowboys in 2010.

Worst Grade: RG Matt Pryor, 41.8

The juxtaposition of last year's right guard play from Brandon Brooks and this year's from Matt Pryor is more than evident. The Eagles have not had good guard play for the majority of this season. With Jordan Mailata holding his own at left tackle, maybe once Jason Peters is healthy he will go back to playing right guard to serve as an upgrade over Pryor.


Defense:

Best Grade: LB Duke Riley, 86.6

Well, at least one Eagles linebacker is playing well. We looked at Duke Riley to step up his game as a starter at linebacker after playing mostly special teams, and to this point, he hasn't been close to Nathan Gerry bad.


Worst Grade: CB Cre'Von LeBlanc, 30.9

Making another appearance on the bottom of the defense, LeBlanc has still not found his way as a starter in place of Avonte Maddox. LeBlanc was given the worst coverage grade (31.9) and the second-worst tackling grade (28.9), not ideal.

Notable Grade

Zach Ertz was on the field for 56 of the Eagles 59 offensive snaps and was targeted six times catching one pass for six yards, earning a receiving grade of 54.2. Not Ideal for a player looking for a big contract.
