NFL Fantasy Football: Seven Eagles players rank in the top 200

Evan Silva of Rotoworld recently put together his projections for the top 200 players in Fantasy Football for the 2015 NFL regular season. Here's a look at where the Eagles players rank, along with my reactions underneath each ranking.

Eagles players

15) DeMarco Murray (RB7)

Murray is going to be the centerpiece of a run heavy offense. Despite his heavy workload last season, he still deserves to be a top pick. Perhaps more concerning than the burden of the 2014 season is how the Eagles will use Murray in rotation with Ryan Mathews. Darren Sproles will also get a couple carries.

27) Jordan Matthews (WR12)

Matthews is poised to have a big year after playing well as a rookie. The Eagles are going to spread the ball around, but Matthews figures to be the main target. He's a beast in the slot.

69) Nelson Agholor (WR32)

The rookie wideout has some real talent. He just needs to clean up some rookie issues such as concentration drops.

83) Ryan Mathews (RB34)

Mathews is going to get some touches in the Eagles offense so he's a good pick relative to his value. If something happens to Murray, he'll be in line to be the feature back.

104) Sam Bradford (QB14)

Forget about the injury risk, just pull the trigger here and thank me later. Bradford is going to cook in this Eagles offense.

139) Zach Ertz (TE14)

He should be ready for the season but the groin injury could be a concern. Still, Ertz looked great prior to getting hurt. He figures to be a big weapon in the passing attack. He might not be a full-time player with Brent Celek still around, however.

196) Darren Sproles (RB63)

Still makes sense for PPR, especially with the Eagles supposedly looking to get him more involved in the passing attack.

Former Eagles players

25) Frank Gore (RB12)

Never forget.

39) LeSean McCoy (RB16)

McCoy is a risky pick. He might not even be ready for the season after suffering a hamstring injury in training camp. I'd be careful with this one.

44) Jeremy Maclin (WR22)

Maclin's the main guy for the Chiefs. There are concerns about Alex Smith's inability to throw the deep ball, however.

45) DeSean Jackson (WR23)

Jackson should still be productive despite a bad quarterback situation.

152) Marcus Mariota (QB24)
