Injury Report: Post Week 6

Miles Sanders - Knee (Undisclosed) - 1-2 Weeks

Sanders went down again late in the Eagles' loss to the Ravens last week. There is no actual diagnosis on his injury, and it was even said that he had a chance at playing Week 7 if not for the fact that they play on Thursday. Sanders has already been ruled out for Week 7, and there is a chance he misses Week 8's contest with the Cowboys before the bye. You'd have to imagine that the Eagles would love to have him back for that game, as it may have serious playoff implications in the NFC East (lol). For now, Boston Scott is his immediate replacement, and he is known as the giant killer, so look forward to that matchup on Thursday.


Raheem Mostert - High Ankle Sprain - IR (Likely, 3-4 Weeks)

This one's tough, as Mostert just got back from his previous high ankle sprain in Week 2, and looked really good against the Rams. Shanahan said on Monday that Mostert will be placed on injured reserve, and miss 3-4 weeks. The catch is that the 9ers have yet to place Mostert on IR, or even rule him out for this week. Expect this to just be a smoke screen from Shanahan, and for Mostert to miss a minimum of 3 Weeks. Jerrick McKinnon is his replacement for fantasy, and should be valued as a high end RB2, as he averaged just under 20 fantasy points per game in his time as the starter earlier this season, but pay attention to Tevin Coleman, as he is slated to make his return from the IR soon.

Zach Ertz - High Ankle Sprain - 3-4 Weeks

Zach Ertz has had a disappointing 2020 campaign to say the least, averaging just 8 fantasy points per game in PPR formats. The single season reception record holder for a tight end is now slated to miss 3 to 4 weeks. Goedert is now the more appealing tight end on the Eagles to me from a fantasy perspective for the rest of the season. Goedert is expected to make his return from IR in the next couple of weeks, and at the very least should be available after the team's Week 9 bye. I like Dallas Goedert as the fantasy tight end of the Eagles for the rest of the season.


DeVante Parker - Groin - Questionable

DeVante Parker left Week 6's matchup with the Jets early, after tweaking his groin and posting just 3 catches for 35 yards on 8 targets. The Dolphins have a bye this week, so DeVante has some time to rest up, and will hopefully be good to go before the Fins meet the Rams in Week 8 for Tua's first start. Only time will tell who Tua's favorite targets are, but if DeVante misses time, expect Preston Williams and Mike Gesicki to see significant boosts in production.


Mark Ingram - Mild Ankle Sprain - Questionable

Mark Ingram has what is being dubbed as a non-severe, mid-to-high ankle sprain, that he can likely play through. The Ravens have a bye this week, so Ingram shouldn't miss any time. If Ingram is healthy for the Ravens Week 8 tilt with Pittsburgh, the best run defense in the league, neither him nor Dobbins are startable in fantasy. If one of them does miss time however, the other should be a viable RB2-Flex option. Keep an eye on Mark Ingram's practice progression next week.
