The Eagles have a bunch of fantasy draft prospects:
Miles Sanders was stuck behind Saquon Barkley for his first two seasons at Penn State but replaced him nicely last year. In 2018, Sanders actually totaled more rushing yards than Barkley gained the year prior, and on only three more carries.
Over the past two seasons, among all quarterbacks to play in at least 18 games, Carson Wentz ranks behind only Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson in fantasy points per game (19.8).
DeSean Jackson has averaged a 1.82 yards per route run or more with nine different quarterbacks. (1.82 yards per route run would have ranked 30th of 96 wide receivers last year.) The only quarterback he hasn’t? Jameis Winston (1.53).
Jackson totals 4,657 yards from deep passes across the last 10 years, which is 1,259 (31%) more than the next-closest receiver (Calvin Johnson, who saw only three fewer deep targets).
Over the past two seasons, Wentz ranks seventh-best of 26 qualifying quarterbacks in deep ball accuracy percentage. Winston ranks fifth-worst.
Jackson ranked ninth-best in yards per route run (2.27) last year and 18th at the position in PFF grade (81.1) over the past two seasons.
