Five Bold Predictions for the Philadelphia Eagles: Carson Wentz

Five Bold Predictions for the Philadelphia Eagles

Alex Kielar | May 13th, 2020

Last season, Carson Wentz carried a team of practice squad receivers to the playoffs with four straight wins to end the season. Unfortunately, Wentz was knocked out in the first quarter of the Wild Card game against the Seahawks after a hit to the head, and Eagles fans were subjected to watching 40-year old backup Josh McCown try to carry them to victory. That wasn’t the case, as they lost 17-9. They will be a significantly better team this year with a vastly improved wide receiver corps. Without further ado, here are the five bold predictions for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2020.

Philadelphia Eagles 2019 Season Recap

Alex Kielar & Pranav Ramasubramanian | January 30th, 2020 

In a season that began with Super Bowl aspirations, the Eagles barely won a weak NFC East division at a 9-7 record. Even that was a struggle as they had to win four straight games to win the division, including a crucial home win against division rival Dallas. They did all this just to get knocked off in the Wild Card round by the fifth-seeded Seattle Seahawks by a score of 17-9.

Philadelphia Eagles Week 4 Recap: Interception Seals Huge Road Victory in Shootout

Alex Kielar | September 27th, 2019 

What a game! What a way to open up week four! In what was a back-and-forth shootout last night, the Eagles were the team to come out on top, 34-27, in a thriller. The Eagles ended up finishing the game down to just two cornerbacks, but with just seconds left, backup cornerback Craig James came up with a big play to tip the ball in the air. Nigel Bradham caught the tipped ball for the game-sealing interception.

Thursday Night Football Week 4 DFS

Brandon Braasch | September 26th, 2019 

Not many people expected the Philadelphia Eagles to be 1-2 coming into this game. The Green Bay Packers have been playing good football and it does not look good for the Eagles. The Eagles have already been struggling with injuries and now they have to play on short rest. The Packers defense has been good this year but I would bet the over on the total score. These teams can put up points and put them up fast. Let’s take a look at who the best DFS players are in this potentially high scoring Thursday Night matchup.

Philadelphia Eagles Week 3 Recap: Eagles Drop Game to Lions

Alex Kielar | September 23rd, 2019

SEVEN. Now let’s get into all the culprits of the heartbreaking 27-24 defeat by the hands of the Lions, as the Eagles now fall to 1-2. Here are five takeaways from yesterday’s loss.

The Walsh Way – Week 3 DFS Values

Kevin Walsh | September 20th, 2019 

Well, week two was a bit of a disaster. The big Raiders trap was set, and we all fell for it. Granted Tyrell Williams did score and Darren Waller didn’t kill you, when you have 40-50% of them when you enter 150 lineups, it’s going to cause some issues.

Philadelphia Eagles 2019 Season Preview

Alex Kielar | Aug 19th, 2019 

The Philadelphia Eagles 2018 season was very injury-filled, but they used the “Next Man Up” mentality like in their Super Bowl winning season the year prior, and still made it to the Divisional Round of the playoffs. They ultimately fell to the Saints, 20-14, but Nick Foles brought some magic again when Carson Wentz went down for the season with another injury, to will the Eagles into the playoffs. He went 4-1 in the five games he started and threw seven touchdown passes with a 72.3 completion percentage. The biggest question for the 2019 season is whether Philadelphia can stay healthy, especially Wentz. If that happens, the Super Bowl is their ceiling and expectations will be running high.

I’m here to look at seven players that were drafted in April that have seen a ton of chatter, and to give my predictions on if they will prove worthy from day one.
