As each day passes, we are not only one day closer to the beginning of the NFL season but also one day closer to your fantasy football draft.
With some new weapons on offense, will Eagles like Carson Wentz, Alshon Jeffery and LeGarrette Blount help you to a championship?
Mike Clay, a fantasy football expert for ESPN who is known for making player and record projections, posted his estimations for the Eagles in 2017 on Twitter. The document gives you a good idea of what one of the industry leaders in fantasy football expects from the Eagles this season.

The 4,260 yards Clay projects for Wentz would easily break Donovan McNabb’s franchise record for passing yards in a season and the 1,049 receiving yards would make Jeffery well worth the investment the team made in him in the offseason.
If you’re expecting a surprise season from Nelson Agholor, however, maybe you should look away. Clay predicts just four catches and 52 yards for the much-maligned wide receiver.
In addition to some solid individual numbers, Clay’s prediction of 8.8 victories is ahead of what he projects for the Dallas Cowboys (8.6) as the best total in the NFC East.
