Eagles Fantasy Outlooks

Chris Raybon breaks down Doug Pederson’s playcalling tendencies to forecast who will benefit most.

  • Whether we’re talking about Ryan Mathews, LeGarrette Blount or Jay Ajayi, Pederson has installed a two-down grinder in the mold of Jordan Howard as the lead dog in his backfield each year with the team. The three aforementioned backs averaged between 10.8-11.9 carries per game, which is a fair benchmark for Howard this season.
  • Miles Sanders truthers are probably already asking, “What about the change-of-pace role?” Philly backs have collectively averaged 23.4 carries and 6.1 targets under Pederson, which leaves another 11-12 carries and five targets up for grabs after accounting for Howard. On average, backs drafted in Round 2 such as Sanders have averaged 10.4 carries and 1.7 targets per game over the past 10 seasons. With Darren Sproles back for his age-100 season, he figures to command a workload similar to the 4.8 carries and 3.8 targets he got last year, Sanders projects to open the year in the 7-9 touch range with the chance to earn more looks by way of his play and/or injury.
  • Eagles insider Zach Berman reports that it’s clear the Eagles will play more 2TE sets to get Dallas Goedert involved. Goedert only saw 2.8 targets per game in Year 1, so how much volume upside could he gain from a shift in formational philosophy? The Eagles had just over nine pass plays per game on first or second down with less than two tight ends on the field last season that took place either (a) in the first half, or (b) in the second half up by more than one score. Given Goedert’s 16.5% target rate, in a best-case scenario 2TE sets could get him up to 4.5 targets per game, tops. Projecting based on his 2018 numbers, Goedert would have finished as the TE10 in standard but TE19 in PPR. His four TDs in 44 targets will likely get hit with some regression, but he’s still the highest-upside bench stash at the position and has an outside shot at producing standalone value.
