NFL Fantasy Football: Six Eagles rank in the Top 150 players

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Evan Silva of Rotoworld recently put together his projections for the top 150 players in Fantasy Football for the 2015 season. Here we take a look at which Eagles players made the list.

Eagles players

"6. DeMarco Murray - Still top-shelf RB1, but touches are a lock to dip."

Silva doesn't seem to be one who thinks Murray will completely fall off the wagon in terms of production. He might be right. The Eagles will run the ball a lot. As he notes, however, he'll be splitting some touches with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles.

"34. Jordan Matthews - 70-1,118-10 pace over 2nd half of rookie year."

Matthews really started to take off when Mark Sanchez took over at quarterback. His role might be expanding in his sophomore season so there's reason to believe he can improve.

"51. Nelson Agholor -- Maclin role. 190 targets missing from PHI offense."

Silva is already predicting big things for the team's first round draft pick. Agholor should be able to step in right away and contribute.

"90. Zach Ertz - Trust his role will grow. Top breakout TE candidate in '14."

Can Ertz earn more playing time in his third year or will he continue to be stuck behind Brent Celek?

"105. Ryan Mathews - Becomes top-5 fantasy RB1 if Murray goes down."

Even if Murray stays healthy, Mathews could still get his fair share of touches.

"116. Sam Bradford - Sanchez/Foles/Vick = 65 TDs last 2 years under Chip."

Bradford could be a huge bargain if he's able to stay healthy.

Former Eagles players

"18. LeSean McCoy - Still an RB1, but his situation is worse in Buffalo."

Shady went from being Silva's No. 1 overall pick last year to almost outside of the top 20. Buffalo's offensive line finished as one of the worst run-blocking units in 2014.

"31. Frank Gore - Expect spikes in receptions & touchdowns on Colts."

Never forget.

"50. DeSean Jackson - Went 56-1,169-9 in first season under Jay Gruden."

The Redskins never won a game where Jackson scored a TD last year.

"62. Jeremy Maclin - WR1 in Philly to low-ceiling WR2 with Alex Smith."

How is Maclin going to fare in Kansas City if Smith can't deliver the deep ball?
