2 WRs to start and 2 WRs to fade in Week 12 fantasy football - DraftKings Nation
Travis Fulgham, Philadelphia Eagles vs. Seattle Seahawks. Fulgham is coming off two straight one-reception games but can bounce back against the worst pass defense in the NFL in Week 12. Carson Wentz’s subpar pay should also contribute to how low fantasy managers are on Fulgham, but any quarterback seems to have a chance to exceed 300 passing yards against Seattle. Wentz’s top pass catcher could see a significant boost in production against such a poor secondary. He played 96 percent of Philly’s snaps in Week 11.

Report: Jeffrey Lurie is frustrated with the Eagles and he did not attend the Browns game - BGN
Not unlike many fans, Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie is frustrated with his team. Lurie’s frustration reportedly factored in to his abnormal absence from last week’s game against the Cleveland Browns. Good information here from the Inquirer’s Jeff McLane (bold emphasis mine): Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie for the first time in years — and perhaps ever — didn’t travel to his team’s road game at the Browns last Sunday. Lurie’s frustration with his team has been mounting, and his absence in Cleveland was widely believed by many at the NovaCare Complex to primarily be an extension of his feelings, two team sources said. The Eagles, through a spokesman, said that Lurie didn’t attend because he was being overly cautious, in light of the coronavirus pandemic, because he was planning on visiting his mother on Thanksgiving. [...] Lurie also has been at recent practices and has left various workouts early out of disgust, the sources said.

The Kist & Solak Show #210: Doug’s Future In Doubt? + Eagles-Seahawks Preview! - BGN Radio
Michael Kist & Benjamin Solak hit a range of topics as they work through their MNF Seahawks-Eagles preview with thoughts on yet another offensive line reconfiguration PLUS more reports that Doug Pederson’s future is in doubt with the Eagles?! NOTE: Recorded before Jeff McLane reported that Jeffrey Lurie skipped attending the Browns game out of “frustration” with the team. Powered by SB Nation and Bleeding Green Nation.

Wish List - Iggles Blitz
There is one group that I’m dying to see the Eagles beat…the Seahawks. I hate Pete Carroll with a passion. I hate Russell Wilson with a passion. I hate D.K. Metcalf. I hate their stupid uniforms. I hate their obsession with “12”. The last time the Eagles beat Seattle was way back in 2008. Doug Pederson was working as a roadie for Nickelback. Carson Wentz hadn’t even been born. Greg Ward was in his first year on the Eagles practice squad. That really was a long time ago. Wilson has tortured the Eagles over and over and over since coming to the NFL. There have been blowout losses, close losses and ugly losses. All losses. Even the 2017 Eagles couldn’t manage to beat Seattle.

Doug Pederson’s explanation for Jason Peters move doesn’t add up - NBCSP
But if the Eagles were truly happy with the way Peters has been playing, they wouldn’t be moving him from the position where he’s built up a Hall of Fame resume to right guard, no matter who’s playing right tackle. If Peters were playing well, it would make sense to keep him at left tackle and play Mailata at right tackle in place of Johnson and then use Pryor at right guard, where he’s started five games this year. But it’s clear to everybody — including the Eagles — that Peters, a nine-time Pro Bowler, has struggled this year at left tackle and that his performance against the Browns may have been the worst of his career. The Eagles may not want to admit it, but their actions speak louder than their words.

Jeff Stoutland, the offensive line magic man, has greatest challenge in front of him - PE.com
Jeff Stoutland is one of the best offensive line coaches in all of the game of football. He’s a proven success story who brings out the best in his players, and those players look back on their careers and thank Stoutland profusely for the difference he’s made in their careers. The immediate task in front of Stoutland is one of the greatest he’s faced: Piecing together an offensive line that will start its 10th combination in 11 games. There have been injuries. Oh, have there been injuries – starting with Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks in the spring, stretching through Training Camp when left tackle Andre Dillard went down, and then the “land mines,” as Stoutland calls them, continued into the regular season with injuries to left guard Isaac Seumalo, right tackle Lane Johnson, left tackle (again) Jason Peters … the list goes on and on. Even now, with the game just two nights away, the Eagles moved guard Sua Opeta to Injured Reserve with a back injury and Peters, who is moving to right guard for the first time, “as questionable” with a toe injury. How in the world does a coach keep up with all of the moving parts?

2020 Fantasy Football Rankings: Tight Ends for Week 12 - Fake Teams
23 — Will Dissly @ PHI. The Eagles are bottom five in receptions allowed to tight ends (56) and have allowed six scores. It’s a quality matchup for Dissly, and the Seahawks have a healthy 27.50 implied total. With Greg Olsen (foot) headed to I.R., we get a two-man timeshare in Dissly (the better blocker who should see the field more) and Jacob Hollister—who has more targets on the year despite playing fewer snaps than Dissly so far. Sooooo, even Jacob Hollister is viable here, if you’re desperate. I may be in one league where I am forced to start two tight ends if Hurst can’t go.

Seahawks looking to maintain dominance in their home away from home: Philadelphia - Field Gulls
After a stunning 8-2 road record (playoffs included) in 2019, the Seattle Seahawks are just 2-3 on the road in 2020, but fear not because their next game is at their second home. Oh, you thought I was talking about that cursed stadium in Glendale? Yeah that already happened and I don’t want to discuss further. I’m talking about the City of Brotherly Love. Philadelphia! The Eagles are 3-6-1 and no longer in first place of the rancid NFC East, and they are five-point underdogs to a Seahawks team looking for its first road win since September. The Seahawks have a winning away record over ten teams in franchise history, but none more pronounced than Philadelphia. Not only are they 6-2 lifetime at the Eagles, but they are undefeated at Lincoln Financial Field. Those two losses occurred in the Seahawks’ inaugural season in 1976 and the other in 1989. Since then it’s been one-sided in favor of the good guys in this story.

Poll: Who do you want to win the NFC East if it isn’t going to be the Dallas Cowboys? - Blogging The Boys
While it is a strange thing for us to say out loud, the Philadelphia Eagles winning the division might help the Cowboys the most. It would keep them far away from the top of the NFL Draft order and perhaps convince them that their organizational structure is not in need of a serious reboot. It also might make them believe that Carson Wentz is indeed the answer for them and the longer that they are thinking that the better for America’s Team.
