PYRO Fantasy Depth Chart

The PYRO Fantasy Football Depth Chart is a rundown of where Team PYRO projects the fantasy production for each team at each position. It is NOT an attempt to inform you of the current starters for each team. For example, we are well aware that Brandon Manumaleuna is currently the starting TE for the Chicago Bears, but if you look at the Bears Team Page, we have Greg Olsen listed at TE. Why? We’re projecting that Greg Olsen will be the most Fantasy Football relevant TE for the Bears this season. Since Olsen will be the Bears leading FF point scorer at TE, it’s his name at the top of the TE column on our PYRO Fantasy Depth Chart.

Philadelphia Eagles - 2014 Preseason #FF Preview

philadelphia eagles header graphic


Last year nine teams had three or more fantasy starters in the top 60 and it is likely that it’ll continue to be that way in 2014. This series: Dressed for Success, will look at NFL teams going into 2014 that have assembled the right players to be a treasure trove of fantasy studs. 

2013 was Chip Kelly’s first season as an NFL head coach, replacing long time head coach Andy Reid. From the very first game, the Eagles displayed a remarkably efficient offense that every fantasy owner should still be excited about owning players on the Eagles going into next season. While the Eagles didn’t run the most offensive plays in the NFL, the team tied with the Broncos for first in average yards per play with 6.3 yards per play. In fact, the number of offensive plays run is not a sure indicator of fantasy production; the Bills ran the third most plays in the NFL, but ranked 25th in total fantasy output.

Going into next season, I am really excited for Nick Foles, mildly excited about LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles, and cautiously optimistic about Riley Cooper, and Jeremy Maclin.

Nick Foles is the most intriguing sleeper pick for QB, because it’s hard to tell if he is really talented or just a product of Kelly’s system. The Eagles QBs combined for the third highest fantasy totals by QBs by team (Peyton Manning’s Broncos had 496.8; Drew Brees’ Saints had 437.5, and Vick and Foles’ Eagles had 415; the next best was Andy Dalton’s Bengals at 377.1). For fantasy purposes though, this abstract discussion of who created who probably doesn’t matter. If Foles is actually good, you might be getting the next Aaron Rodgers. In his 11 starts, he’s mustered 10 multi-TD games, with three TD runs. If he isn’t that good, you’ll be getting the benefit of him being part of an extremely efficient system, maybe channeling Matthew Stafford when his value was based on throwing the ball a ton. That is of course if Philadelphia doesn’t run him out of town first. (Read this story on how folks in Philly think Sanchez will fare).

The other knock that Foles has against him, following DeSean Jackson’s trade, is the lack of proven receivers on offense. Riley Cooper had a few amazing games in the middle of the season, but failed to break 75 yards after week 10. Jeremy Maclin is coming off an ACL surgery on a knee he previously had surgery on before has never had a 1000 yard season, but has had one double digit TD season. However, with QBs in fantasy football, the talent around you doesn’t have to be phenomenal; think of the NFL adage “some QBs make WRs better.” As long as Maclin and Cooper could stay healthy for most of the season, I expect Foles to resume playing at a high level. And worry not about Desean, we can be sure DeSean will be leaving some dirt at “the Linc” come next season. The skinny of it is probably this: not everyone throws for seven TDs in a game, even if it’s against the Raiders. You want a QB who can at least exploit a bad team.



With the unknown being so uncertain it’s hard to draft Foles early, but fortunately you probably won’t have to. The trend of waiting to draft a QB will probably continue into next season so you can safely pick him up in middle rounds after the PDA trinity of Peyton, Drew, and Aaron and running QBs have gone. Those in leagues that reward for big-plays should further consider bumping up Foles because the Eagles led the league in 20+ yard passes at 80, with the Broncos coming in second at 68.

The running game in Philadelphia is just as intriguing as the passing game. In 2013, LeSean and Bryce Brown combined for second most productive running game in terms of yardage. With Darren Sproles in the mix, its easily imaginable that this offense can produce two fantasy relevant RBs. In this up-tempo offense, it’ll be easy for Sproles to make separation with opposing linebackers, even if he’s lost a step or two with age. Lesean is still going in the first round and he’s a worthwhile RB to get in the first considering the Eagles tied for the second most running TDs in the league last year. Sproles however is going to slip in standard scoring, less so than PPR, but I wouldn’t let him go past 9th round in standard or 8th round in PPR.. He has more potential than whichever handcuff you are tempted to get at that point in the draft.

 I do like Zach Ertz’s potential to be a good TE in 2014. Ertz outgained Celek in yardage and catches during the season, but scored fewer TDs than Celek.  But if 2013 is any indication, I don’t see Ertz breaking into the top 5 of TEs because the targets between him and Celek seem to go back and forth from game to game. There are better TEs to be had unless you’re waiting till the double digit rounds of your draft to be picking a TE.

 You might have ethical dilemmas about drafting Riley Cooper, like when, I out of principle will not draft players who went to USC (in terms of degrees of socially detestable behavior, Riley Cooper’s Chesney induced comments and attending USC, pretty much the same). But really, Cooper does have some upside, not just as a PPR machine, but also in standard. Last season, Cooper flashed some long play-making abilities. In eight games, Cooper had at least one catch for over 20 yards, with four being over 40 yards. He can be a safe pick in either standard or PPR; I’d be comfortable taking a chance on him in the 7th round as a WR3. Believe in second chances; believe in Cooper; don’t let friends go to USC.

Maclin is a prototypical example of health risk versus reward players. If Danny Amendola taught us all anything last year, it’s that we should never be drafting injury prone receivers in the fourth round. Personally, Maclin hasn’t shown enough consistent production to go anywhere before the sixth; coupled with the injury history; I would only be willing to spend a 9th round pick at most to gamble on Maclin.

 The last stat I’ll share is Philadelphia’s turnover difference: +12 turnovers, fourth best in the league. The short and skinny is that teams that get the ball or maintain the ball more, can produce more fantasy stats. The Eagles are looking like a well put together team and can help your fantasy team look pretty... fly. The city of Philadelphia is ready for winners, and what is this about their being a jail in the stadium?

Philadelphia eagles court

Philadelphia is known as the city of brotherly love, but you would not know it from the way opposing teams and fans are treated when they visit. The Eagles, and more accurately Philadelphia, and their fans have a rep as being the worst in the country. Whether or not that is true is debatable, but the fans of Philadelphia definitely have a checkered past. So much so in fact, that in 1998 the city of Philadelphia created the Eagles Court, which convened in the basement of the then home of the Eagles Veterans Stadium. The city of Philadelphia and their fans may deny their rep, but being the first city to have a courtroom in one of their stadiums leaves no doubt, so own up to it and be proud.

This history of violence started back in 1949. On August 21st, during a Phillies game, fans began to throw glass bottles onto the field. The fans were upset at call being made by the umpires in the game, and this was their retort. The crowd would not yield, and when they ignored pleas over the loudspeakers the game was forfeited. Umpire Lee Ballanfant was hit in the face with a bottle, and fellow umpire Al Barlick took a tomato to the back of the head. Ah, the days when people brought their own tomatoes to throw.

In the 1960’s, the Phillies first basemen was Dick Allen, who was African-American. The fans of the Phillies did not care for Allen and would routinely boo him. Allen became effected by this would write “letters in the dirt” with his spikes to show the fans his displeasure. The response was that fans would throw garbage, fruit and batteries at Allen. When he played first he would wear his batting helmet at first, and earned him the nickname “Crash”. Remember he played for the Phillies…only in Philadelphia.

One of the most famous incidents happened in 1968. The Eagles were in the midst of a losing season, and had the inside track to the first overall pick in 1969, where O.J. Simpson was waiting. The Eagles began to win games late in the season, and in the final home game there was a halftime ceremony where Santa Claus would come out and wave to the crowd. The crowd was already unruly, and the Santa had left the building. They scrambled and grabbed a fan from the stands, Frank Olivo, who was wearing a makeshift Santa outfit and had him go out. The fans began to boo him, and he was pelted with snowballs. He came back in 2003 to a Sixers game in a Santa suit and was once again booed, welcome back.

At an Eagles game in 1989, referred to as Bounty Bowl II, against the Dallas Cowboys fans once again displayed poor judgment and wasteful behavior. The stadium once again had snow that could not be removed, and instead was packed under the seats. The weather was warming up enough that the snow became perfect for packing and molding into ice balls. Fans began throwing these ice balls at Cowboys players, coaches, the referees, as well as the broadcasters…don’t want to discriminate now do we. Then fans began to pour beer on everyone going through the tunnel. The effect was the team banning beer sales for the final home game, as well as their NFC Wild Card game against the Rams. Ice Balls and wasting beer. There is a history of snowballs and the like, but wasting beer…really?

In 1997 during a Monday Night Football game against the San Francisco 49ers all hell broke loose. Just before the opening kickoff an all out brawl broke out, in the 500 level of Veterans Stadium, when five drunk fans attacked and thrashed Scott Reader, who suffered a shattered ankle as well as cigar burns. The reason he was assaulted was because his friend happened to be wearing a New York Giants jacket…heaven forbid. Reader recalled what a guard told him after the beating. ``The guard told me that he was sorry he couldn't help me, but there were five of them and only one of him,'' Reader said. This was only the beginning; the worst was yet to come.

The Eagles fell behind 24-6 at halftime, and Mayor Ed Rendell knew trouble could be brewing. He ordered additional security to a problem area in the upper levels where drinking and pot smoking ran rampant at every game. Unfortunately, things would get worse. The fans were no longer paying attention to the game, and there was a lot more action going on in the stands than on the field. The destructive behavior of that night culminated with a fan in upper level 500, Robert Sellers, firing a flare into a mob of fans on the lower 200 level. His response was that he got caught up in the chaos of the crowd. The night also included other mob activities: over 60 different fist fights, pick pocketing, car thefts, and stolen Eagles merchandise…you know classic Philadelphia behavior.

The result of this was the courts of Philadelphia taking action. Seamus McCaffery was a member of the Municipal Court in Philadelphia, and he spearheaded the development of the Eagles Court, with the support of members from the city council. Due to the history of violence at Veterans Stadium the city created an actual court located in the bowels of the stadium. McCaffery presided over this court, which was open for business during Eagles and Phillies home games. Fans would no longer have to wait to receive their punishment.

The fans of Philadelphia have continued to earn their ranking as the worst fans in the game, so by now it should just be something that is worn with a badge of honor or stupidity…what’s the difference. I am actually proud to announce that the Eagles Court is no longer in session at Lincoln Financial Field, as the effect of the court worked so well that it is no longer necessary, for now.

Miracle at the Meadowlands

miracle at the meadowlands by desean jackson

In a play that has been named as the Miracle at the New Meadowlands DeSean Jackson made a play that had never been done before in NFL History, a walk off punt return touchdown but that was only half the story. With under 8 minutes to go in the fourth quarter the Eagles were trailing by 21 points to the rival Giants before they kicked it into overdrive. Eli Manning and the Giants dominated the game early with three touchdown passes before the half and a lead of 24-3 at the break. The Eagles would score in the third and trail 24-10 heading into the final quarter. The Giants would extend their lead to 31-10 with another Eli Manning strike with 8:17 left on the clock.

The rest of the game was all Eagles as Mike Vick would lead three unanswered touchdown drives in the fourth quarter. Vick would throw two touchdown passes and run one in to tie the game at 31 with 76 seconds left on the clock. The Giants would get the ball back with over a minute but their offense would falter and the punt team would be sent out with 14 seconds left and the dangerous DeSean Jackson waiting at the other end.  DeSean would fumble the kick upon first touch then scoop it up and burst through the Giants coverage team and getting a jaw dropping block by Jason Avant that would free Jackson up with a stroll towards, and along the endzone before finally breaking the plane with no time remaining. The win would propel the Eagles into the playoffs at the expense of the Giants and the game would be voted as one of the most memorable of all time.

Pyro Light Fantasy Football Podcast - Episode 39 - Dave-Te Thomas & PyromaniacMo

Barner rushed six times for 41 yards and a touchdown and caught a pass for 4 yards. He had some nifty runs and ran skinny through a few holes.

Pyro's take: Barner rushed six times for 41 yards and a touchdown and caught a pass for 4 yards. He had some nifty runs and ran skinny through a few holes. Ryan Mathews rushed five times for 18 yards.

Pyro Light Fantasy Football Podcast - Episode 39 - Dave-Te Thomas talks rookie QBs & TEs can be found on the Pyromaniac.com website from the date of 7/24/16.

Fantasy Goo: Yup, Dave Te Thomas was PyromaniacMo’s special guest for a podcast last month and drooled over Kenjon Barner. Does Dave know something we do not know? We do know that Ryan Mathews is injured every season so, maybe Dave Te Thomas has a magic crystal ball or just has balls to make a bold call. Anyway, we have all been told.

Nelson Agholor In Line To Be The Number Two Reciever In Philly This Season

Nelson Agholor

Pyro's take: Nelson Agholor is expected to enter training camp as the Eagles' No. 2 WR behind Jordan Matthews. With Matthews expected to play the slot, Agholor would be the top option on the outside. (NJ.com)

Agholor performed like a rookie WR in his freshman campaign, struggling with drops during an underwhelming performance. With a year under his belt, he could provide value this season if he's able to live up to his pedigree.

It looks like we’re going to have another running-back-by-committee

It looks like we’re going to have another running-back-by-committee season in Philadelphia. While Mathews got the bulk of first-team reps this spring, he also shared them with Barner and Sproles.

Pyro's take: It looks like we’re going to have another running-back-by-committee season in Philadelphia. While Mathews got the bulk of first-team reps this spring, he also shared them with Barner and Sproles. The team also has fifth-rounder Smallwood. “Well, you go in thinking that one guy can handle the load,” Pederson said. “If that's Ryan, he can handle all the stuff and the pounding. But with the guys we have, with the depth we have at that position, Darren is obviously a big part of that and now with Wendell [RB Wendell Smallwood] coming on, I think it could be a little bit of a running back by committee.”

Fantasy Goo: Ryan Mathews finished 2015 (weeks 10, 14, 15, 16 and 17) with yards per carry of 2.3, 2.9, 5.3, 1.3 and 2.8 to finish the season. The big RED FLAG should be that he cannot be counted on to hold up for a complete season and especially when you need him for fantasy playoff time. The Eagles as a whole look horrible this year. Open your fantasy magazine up, turn to the Philly page and tear out the running back section. Maybe if they were to bring in Arian Foster we could get a little excited.

Exotic Dancer Accuses Eagles Player Nelson Agholor of Rape

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor has been accused of raping a dancer at Cheerleaders Gentlemen’s Club, law enforcement sources have told Philadelphia magazine.

Pyro's take: Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor has been accused of raping a dancer at Cheerleaders Gentlemen’s Club, law enforcement sources have told Philadelphia magazine. A 27-year-old dancer told police that she was raped inside the club, which is located on Front Street near Oregon Avenue in South Philadelphia, about 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Fantasy Goo: Nelson was supposed to be a great fit in the Chip Kelly offense last year. Now Agholor has two battles as he tries to improve on the field and deal with a lying bitch. Surprise, a stripper telling a lie or is Nelson actually guilty? We will have to wait and see. I am betting this is not the first time that she has received ‘The Ejaculate Reception’. Since everything about a stripper is based on lies, the odds might be in Nelson’s favor but, his reputation will take a hit and his ability to focus this season may take a hit as well. Jordan Matthews and Zach Ertz can expect to carry the team in 2016.

Doug Pederson reiterates that Sam Bradford will be his starting QB for Game 1

Doug Pederson reiterates that Sam Bradford will be his starting QB, barring injury, for Game 1 in September.

Pyro's take: Doug Pederson reiterates that Sam Bradford will be his starting QB, barring injury, for Game 1 in September.

Fantasy Goo: Sam Bradford’s best season yielded 21 passing and 1 rushing touchdown. He is still just 28 years old but, patience is beginning to wear thin for this guy to shit or get off the pot. Sam has already banked $78,058,119 and if he completes his current contract he will have stolen $113,058,119 from the NFL. If you look at his current NFL team photo he looks like the guy down the street that everyone believes to be the one responsible for the missing cats from the neighborhood. Brave fantasy owners can try selecting him this year as he looks to hold the starting spot just as long as it takes for Carson Wentz to say he is ready.

Rookie QB Carson Wentz aptitude is off the charts

Eagles OC Frank Reich: Rookie QB Carson Wentz aptitude is off the charts.

Pyro's take: Eagles OC Frank Reich: Rookie QB Carson Wentz aptitude is off the charts. SiriusXM NFL Radio

Fantasy Goo: Carson Wentz scored a 40, of a possible 50 on the NFL Wonderlic test. Almost everyone loves Carson’s sexy large medulla oblongata and the rest of the brain as well. Carson was mostly unknown until Mike Mayock started calling him the best quarterback in the 2016 Draft class. Then the chicken-shits who were too scared to say it, well, started saying it too. Carson has not played a down in the NFL yet. We need to watch his status during Training Camp to get a real feel. Is he the next Andrew Luck?

Wentz is Ahead of Schedule


Pyro's take: According to the Eagles QB coach, John DeFilippo, Carson Wentz appears to be ahead of schedule. DeFilippo complements his mental awareness, character, and his stature after he has had time to evaluate him in person. Wentz hails from a North Dakota State University and has smooth mechanics in his throwing motion as well as a big arm. Wentz was drafted No.2 overall in the 2016 draft after the Eagles sold the barn to move up.

Fantasy Goo: Bradford is getting paid $12.5 M this year and is expected to start until further notice. Bradford started 7 games in 2013, 0 in 2014, and 14 in 2015. Wentz is the presumed future of this franchise and optimistically, I expect him to start the second half of the season. I assume as the fantasy season nears, Wentz will overtake Bradford in Average Draft Pick because of Bradford's injury history and the allure of the unknown. Don't overpay.

Nelson Agholor's Focus is on Progression


Pyro's take: The second year wide receiver, Nelson Agholor is eager to make the leap this year. Agholor mentioned his focus has been on cleaner routes. He is also showing poise when speaking to reporters.

Fantasy Goo: With only 44 targets last year and Chip Kelly gone, expect Agholor's targets and production to improve. Doug Peterson's offenses favor Agholor's playing style. Agholor will line up opposite of Matthews, playing WR2 in the Eagle's offense until further notice.

Rookie RB could become Eagles Feature Back at some point in 2016

After Observing Tuesdays

Pyro's take: After observing Tuesdays OTA practice, NJ.com believes that fifth-round rookie running back Wendell Smallwood could become the team's featured back at some point this season.

With Darren Sproles sitting out over displeasure of trade rumors, Smallwood was given more snaps at practice and made the most of them. Per NJ.com, he showed impressive burst and quick cutting ability despite playing on wet grass. He also displayed soft hands. With Sproles' spot on the roster in jeopardy and Ryan Mathews an injury risk, Smallwood could be forced into a big offensive role in 2016.

New Eagles Offense Could Be Perfect Fit For Zach Ertz

Philadelphia Eagles beat

Pyro's take: Philadelphia Eagles beat writer Matt Lombardo believes that the new offense under head coach Doug Pederson will be "huge" for tight end Zach Ertz.

It makes sense, as the Chiefs made tight end Travis Kelce a focal point of their offense the last two years. Fresh off signing a five-year, $42.5 million extension in January, Ertz should thrive as the new Kelce in Pederson's offense. Granted, he has more weapons surrounding him than Kelce did in Kansas City, but there is no reason Ertz can't sustain or improve upon his 75-853-2 stat line from a year ago, especially in the touchdown column.

Sam Bradford wants out of Philadelphia


Pyro's take: Sam Bradford wants out of Philadelphia and that's obvious considering that the Eagles traded away their future to move six spots to draft a quarterback.

The Philadelphia Eagles organization has different plans. They already paid him $11 million dollars which would cost against the cap if he went elsewhere, and Bradford gives them the best chance to win now, as they develop the rookie quarterback.

Stafford in Chip Kelly's offense threw for 3725 yards and 19 touchdowns to go along with 14 interceptions in 14 games played. Just pure ugliness.

Doug Pederson said the team could "possibly" add a "young quarterback."


Pyro's take: ederson mentioned the possibility of getting "a young quarterback." We transcribed the good part below (emphasis mine):

"I do. I really do. I think the pieces are there. Great talent on defense. The strength probably on this team is the defensive line, linebackers, tremendous talent there. I think the skill guys are as good, if not better than most of the National Football League, and there’s guys there who have made a lot of plays, young guys, that have made some great plays for this organization. Re-signing a guy like Zach Ertz, I was excited to get him and Brent Celek both wrapped up, Lane Johnson wrapped up.

And then you start just kinda filling in. A hole here, a hole there, get some depth here, you know, get you a young quarterback possibly, and then you just start developing your talent and you see what happens after that."

Pyro's take: "I don't want to say impossible, but it's going to be extremely difficult to go past one year," Caplan said. "It's that or he walks, that's the way I see it. I will be stunned if they get an extension done. A long-term deal, stunned." Bradford reportedly asked for $25 million annually in contract talks earlier this year. Franchising Bradford would create stability while not overcommitting to him. Bradford set career highs in yards and completion percentage in his first season with the Eagles, but had 17 turnovers and hasn't been more than a league-average quarterback.--Rotoworld

Jordan Matthews could be moved out of the slot.


Pyro's take: Does Jordan Matthews stay in the slot? He's one of the biggest slot receivers league, something that Chip Kelly wanted, and while Matthews certainly offered a lot of production, he also took some tremendous shots in the middle of the field. Does Matthews move outside? Do the Eagles use more motion with him and try to work him into free space? Stay tuned. Matthews is a hard-working player and he could be a real focal point of a passing attack that could look quite a bit different.--Dave Spadaro

Sam Bradford didn't perform as many would have expected, but neither did the whole Eagles team. Another season is warranted to see if he has the goods or not.
