Pittsburgh Steelers at Philadelphia Eagles: 2016 Week 3 NFL Pick

Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (2-0) The Eagles were at the top of my underrated teams list coming into the season, with a pre-season over/under of just 6.5 wins. Obviously the quarterback situation complicated matters, especially with Sam Bradford getting traded a week before the season started and rookie Carson Wentz being the week 1 starter. However, I thought...

The Eagles Masterfully Trolled Jimmy Kempski on Twitter

Teams with rookie quarterbacks are often best avoided when it comes to fantasy. However, Carson Wentz proved through two games that he’s capable of making accurate and deep throws. The bigger problem with using the Eagles in fantasy is the other part of the passing equation. The Eagles trounced the league in drops last year (37) with six more than the next highest offender. So...

Jets’ Brandon Marshall calls Carson Wentz ‘smart’ and ‘dumb’

Brandon Marshall probably raised a few eyebrows when he referred to Carson Wentz “dumb” during his weekly appearance Tuesday on “Inside the NFL.” But the New York Jets wide receiver did preface his harsh critique of the budding Philadelphia Eagles rookie phenom by also calling him “smart” as well.
