Here’s a little more Fantasy info on two Philadelphia Eagles skill players.
Heading into the 2021, Fantasy football season, Miles Sanders has an ADP of 3.10 which means that if you want Sanders, you have to take him early. Players with similar ADPs are David Montgomery, Chris Carson, D’Andre Swift, and Josh Jacobs.
Sanders would be your best bet out of that bunch. At the end of the season, it wouldn’t be surprising if Sander’s and Carson’s Fantasy points are close. Don’t forget that Philadelphia’s offensive line is healthy right now. Hopefully, it stays that way. It’s debatably one of the best offensive lines in the league when they are, so if the starters stay on the field, it will make Sanders’ job easier to produce.
DeVonta Smith is an obvious Fantasy target being a highly-touted rookie. Smith and Hurts had a connection when they were in Alabama, and Smith enters camp as the Eagles’ best WR on the team already. Recently, he sprained his MCL, so he’s out 2-3 weeks. He could miss Week 1, so if you are targeting Smith in your Fantasy draft keep an eye on his injury status.
You also might want to keep an eye on his production. As unfortunate as it is, an injury like this can hurt a player’s playability. If Smith is not putting up numbers within the first four weeks, consider trading for someone who is producing. If Smith does produce to your satisfaction, then obviously you want to keep him.
Hurts and Smith could have the same connection they had in college. That connection could win Fantasy games. Smith’s current ADP is 7.07 which means you can wait and feel the way the draft is going. If you need a receiver in the sixth round and Smith is available, consider taking him.
Players around Smith’s ADP are Odell Beckham Jr, Tee Higgins, Chase Claypool, and Courland Sutton. Odell Beckham Jr. could have a great comeback year after tearing his ACL last year. If it comes to between Odell and Smith you would have to think long and hard about your decision. Do you want the guy who is going to produce in Beckham Jr or take the guy with more upside in Smith?
