Eagles' Zach Ertz: Catches only target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught his only target for an 11-yard gain in Thursday's preseason win over the Bills.

Ertz came up one yard shy of a first down on a 3rd-and-12 on the opening drive. Carson Wentz otherwise honed in on shiny new toy Alshon Jeffery, who seemingly represents Ertz's only real competition for the team target lead in the wake of the trade that sent Jordan Matthews to Buffalo.

Eagles' LeGarrette Blount: Dominates first-team work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount got all the first-team reps in Thursday's preseason game against Buffalo, Mitchell Gladstone of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Blount's presence on the field for passing downs made sense with both Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood (hamstring) held out, as the Eagles probably don't want to task 175-pound Donnel Pumphrey or undrafted rookie Corey Clement with pass protecting for their franchise quarterback. Blount took advantage of the opportunity by catching two passes for 15 yards, in addition to handling five carries for eight yards, including multiple outside runs. His usage in this game was much different from what can be expected once Sproles and Smallwood are available.

Eagles' Nelson Agholor: Targeted once by Wentz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agholor caught two of three targets for 28 yards in Thursday's preseason game against Buffalo.

Alshon Jeffery (five targets) and Torrey Smith (zero) got the start, with Agholor joining the fold when the Eagles used three-wide formations. While there's been talk of TE Trey Burton and RB Donnel Pumphrey handling some of the snaps vacated by Jordan Matthews, it at least seems Agholor has a chance to take on the bulk of that workload. Only one of Agholor's targets in Thursday's contest came from Wentz, as the third-year wideout got playing time deep into the second quarter with the second-team offense.

Eagles' Alshon Jeffery: Targeted five times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jeffery caught two of five targets for 23 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Bills.

Jeffery drew the target on five of Carson Wentz's nine pass attempts, including a third-and-goal from the Buffalo five-yard line. The first two targets were thrown into coverage and well over Jeffery's head, but the duo finally connected for gains of nine and 13 on Philadelphia's fourth drive. Jeffery and Torrey Smith were the starters, with Nelson Agholor coming on the field for three-wide sets. Jeffery and TE Zach Ertz figure to be Wentz's favorite options.

Eagles' Corey Clement: In line for increased reps Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clement is expected to receive additional snaps Thursday against the Bills due to Wendell Smallwood's (hamstring) absence, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports.

With Darren Sproles also sidelined, LeGarrette Blount likely won't log more than a series or two with the first-team offense. Thus, Clement, fellow rookie Donnel Pumphrey and second-year pro Byron Marshall represent the remaining running backs on the roster. In his first preseason action last Thursday at Green Bay, Clement earned the most snaps (28) among Eagles RBs, turning the reps into seven carries for 13 yards and two receptions (on four targets) for 31 yards.
