These five Philadelphia Eagles should be on your fantasy football team.
It’s officially August and training camp is back. This year won’t include the traditional training camp and four preseason games leading up to the start of the season in early September; however, the bottom line is that Philadelphia Eagles football is back (at least for the time being). The “City of Brotherly Love” and “Birds” fans all over the country are buzzing once again about what to expect every Sunday.
With the return of football looming, fans are already beginning to plan for their Fantasy football season. Some will be looking for ways to defend their league title, and others will try to climb from worst to first. Either way, it’s an exciting time of the year. It’s almost like Christmas morning for football fans.
Everyone’s attention in Fantasy drafts will be on some of the big names at the skill positions like Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, Christian McCaffery, Saquon Barkley, and Julio Jones. While each team needs one or two of those big stars, they can only carry the team so far. The best teams are made based on what owners do towards the middle and end of their respective drafts.
The Eagles might not have a ton of Fantasy stars but they certainly have guys who can give any team an advantage whether they are a Fantasy backup, starter, or flex starter. Most of the Eagles are solid additions to Fantasy teams with good upside though. They might not be the flashiest pick of your draft but they’re low-risk, high reward Fantasy picks who could end up paying dividends.
With that said, here are five Philadelphia Eagles any Fantasy owner looking to win his league must look to include.
