  1. Jay Train's fantasy value

    Jimmy's view "With one year left on his rookie contract, Ajayi will be looking to make good money in free agency next offseason, so this could be his final year with the team. As such, there’s a good chance the Eagles will look to get their money’s worth out of him this season, giving him a much higher workload than he had a year ago. That should be fine with Ajayi, who will want his stats to look good heading into a contract year."
  2. Jay Train's fantasy value

    So you guys think his current adp is overrated? Around 40ish-50ish? I think he has a very good chance for at least 1000 scrimmage yards and lord knows how many tds. I mean that is what you can realistically expect from a guy like Fitz as well, but still he is ranked way higher. I have faith in Ajayi.
  3. Jay Train's fantasy value

    I am not sure about that. He is a decent pass catcher and he was involved in the passing game last year. He is definitely going to be a first and second down player, but he will have his catches. Overall the RBs will be more involved in the passing game in my view.
  4. I am wondering whether to buy into Ajayi as a workhorse RB this year in fantasy or not. One side of me thinks we are going to witness the same rotation as in every year in the post Shady era. My other part thinks, after three complete season there is going to be a rusher with 200+ attempts. The below figures show how much the nr 1 RB ran the ball in the last three season and their share compared to the total rushes (all players included). Btw, this is going to be the 5th consecutive year where the leading rusher for the Eagles is a different player. Last time it happened was between 1983-1987 (Oliver - Montgomery - Jackson - Byars - Cunningham) 2015: DeMarco Murray 193 rushes (44%) 2016: Ryan Mathews 155 (35%) - missed three games 2017: LeGarrette Blount 173 (37%) 2018 (AVG of 3 years): Jay Ajayi 174 (39%). Deuce already told Jay was going to be the featured back, but we all know this is not going to be a one man show. There is lot of talk he walks at the end of the season (I hope that is not the case), and him hiring Rosenhaus does not seem like improving his chances to remain. Let's assume they let him walk, isn't the wise move to hand him the ball as many times as possible, as a) you do not have to be "afraid" about his longer term health, and b) with better stats he would possibly net a better contract somewhere else thus most probably a better compensatory pick next year. Any chance Ajayi cracks the 200 mark? Do you see him havin 1,000 yards?
  5. Eagles OTA/Training Camp News

    I would definitely recommend Jimmy Kempski @ http://www.phillyvoice.com/tags/eagles/. I think Jimmy and Tommy are far away the best.
  6. Eagles cut Kendricks

    Bad move and even worse timing. Anyways, we are one injury away from a "Moise Fokou" or an "Akeem Jordan" playing meaningful snaps. I liked Kendricks, he was a good player. Sad to see him leave.
  7. He is 6'5 and only 250 pounds. Needs at least 20 more. Next year when long retires and who knows whats gonna happen with graham/bennett, he can fight for a starting gig. If he is that good of a player...
  8. Nope. means makes the squas as a fifth end, while sweat is stashed away on ir.
  9. We need safety depth, that is for sure. I guess after Reid sued the league, the minimal chance there was that he is signed turned into nil. But what about Kenny Vaccaro? He would be a nice addition. By far the biggest need is the third safety. Maybe Gerry can be transitioning back to the safety position, or some kind of a hybrid with all these linebackers. ___ Qb: wentz, foles, sudfeld (3) Rb: ajayi, clement, sproles, pumphrey (4) Wr: jeffery, agholor, wallace, hollins, gibson (5) Te: ertz, goedert, brown (3) Ot: peters, johnson, vaitai, mailata (4) Og: wisniewsky, brooks, seumalo, warmack (4) Oc: kelce (1) Total: [24] Notes: brown makes it over rodgers, neither of these guys is much of a blocker, but brown possesses higher upside. mailata makes the team as the fourth tackle (would be signed away from the ps), who could be a blocking tight end and a goal line back. pump gets his second chance, and with the presumable weight gain he can handle nfl defenders better, while the talent is still there. ___ De: graham, bennett, barnett, long, means (5) Dt: cox, ngata, FA, vaeo, qualls (5) Olb: bradham, kendricks, nelson, grugier-hill, gerry (5) Mlb: hicks, worrilow (2) Cb: darby, mills, jones, douglas, maddox (5) S: jenkins, mcleod, FA, maragos (4) Total: [26] Notes jernigan starts the season on ir, so the team needs a reliable 3re dt, who plays 40% of the snaps. means makes the squas as a fifth end, while sweat is stashed away on ir. ___ Sp (3) : elliott, johnston, lovato
  10. Eagles in London?

    It opened up for me like 30 seconds before 10. Then nothing for 20 minutes, all kinds of error messages. Then i launched the website on the phone as well and my laptop. Finally it gave me two, so i jumped on it. I am sorry that you did not manage to buy.
  11. Eagles in London?

    Same here.
  12. Sad to see him cut. It's true he wasn't finishing plays at the rate he was expected, but he never played on third down. 6-7 sacks wouldn't have been unreasonable. On a sidenote i am really worried about our 2019 cap situation. We are ~20m over the cap and and there are a lot of guys due for an extension. Graham Darby Hicks Ajayi Agholor Obviously not everyone is going to ve resigned, but still cause for headache.
  13. Alshon Played with a Torn Rotator Cuff

    What a tough dude. I recall when the coaches were downplaying the injury, seems like it ended up more serious than what we thought.
  14. Eagles in London?

    i didn't even get a notification email when I registered my interest originally. although i did that at least three times. i have some friends, who went to london all of the last three years, but they told me they were sitting in front of the computer with refreshing the browser every 5 seconds when the site had been finally opened. if you wanna buy it only some hours later, that may be already too late.
  15. Eagles in London?

    oh i see... then i guess i need to wait a bit more. but what are these 2 months compared to a decade and some change.
