Levitan: NFL Draft Fantasy Winners – Establish running
3. Jalen Hurts, QB, Eagles – Underdog ranks 101st overall. Since last season, the Eagles have traded away to Carson Wentz, used null versions of QB and traded for DeVonta Smith. RT Lane Johnson and RG Brandon Brooks are expected to be injured in the offensive line at the end of the season. Jalen Herts, who averaged 29.5 DraftKings points per game in his three full games last season. The ability to rush to keep the weekly floor sky high, and the addition of Smith adds up to Hurts̵
5 winners and 5 lost from the Eagles’ Mine 2021 – BGN
WINNERS: Jalen Hurts. The Eagles could grab Justin Fields at number 12. They could stay in place, keep their extra third round and take the former Ohio star if they didn’t feel Hertz would make a solid QB in 2021 Of course, they also took a lot of time to load a capital project next year to follow QB either in a free agency or in the project for next year, but for this year Roseman and the coaching staff assured him that will be their starter. Choosing Smith also provides one of the best talents for broad receivers who have been entering Philadelphia since DeSin Jackson was drafted, and being a former teammate with Smith in Alabama can only be a good thing for their relationship. In the second round, the Eagles chose another former Hearts teammate, the often injured center / guard Landon Dickerson, a mountain of a man who, if healthy (and that’s big if he can), can take on Jason Kelche right after 2022. , providing real protection for Hurts. Finally, in the 5th round, the backcourt received a potential boost with Memphis coming back to Kenneth Guinwell, picking up a sleeper that most project experts believe is a theft for Birds number 150 in general. In the end, the project really couldn’t get any better for Jalen Herts.

LOST: RB Miles Sanders, Philadelphia Eagles. With the 150th overall pick, the Eagles chose Memphis RB’s Kenny Gainwell. This in itself would not seem so harmful, especially given the fifth round of the capital draft, but Gainwell comes out of this class as perhaps the second best recipient after Clemson’s Travis Etienne. This comes shortly after they signed RB Jordan Howard for a one-year deal. Again, not a huge blow to Sanders’ value in itself, but each of these defenders further obscures the room of the running backs there at Philly, and Guinwell in particular could bring a blow to Sanders as the successor the managers hope for. fantasy after drawing it for a dynasty of the 12 best in the last year.

The remaining eagle holes to fill after the project and who can fill them – PhillyVoice
Casey Hayward (turns 32 in September): Hayward is a former Pro Bowl artist whose career is in decline. For the Eagles, he would be a good candidate for a band-aid, because he is at least resilient, as he has missed only two games in the last seven seasons. It also has internal and external flexibility, which would have some value if the Eagles intend Darius Slay to follow the number 1 receivers again, as in 2020.
Talk / Draft talk – Iggles Blitz
I always leave Rodney McLeod out of my depth charts because he got hurt so late and feels unlikely to play soon. This group is not convincing in any way, but Wallace, Maddox and McPherson are young players with talent. They could be key parts of the secondary movement forward. Harris can be re-signed and play for a few more years. Epps can become a good role player. We will have to see what the new coaches can get out of it. There are some free agents that can be targeted. Stevie Nelson is the main person there. Its costs must fall. There may be some CBs available through the market. We will have to wait and see what we will hear in the next few months. Next March, the Eagles will have plenty of room for hats. They can be aggressive when seeking secondary help. The draft should be much deeper so that they have better opportunities there as well. Howie and the front office know the secondary isn’t good enough. It is functional for now, but needs long-term help.
The Eagles project signals additional support for Jalen Hurts in 2021 – ESPN
Soon, calmer atmospheres will give way to the intensity of the NFL season, and the reality will be about what 2021 is: a test start for the Hurts. There are already reports linking the Eagles to Russell Wilson of Seattle and Deschawn Watson of Houston. After coming out 1-3 as a starter and completing 52% of his passes for the rookie season, internal questions remain as to whether Hurts is the long-term quarterback’s answer. Next season, Philadelphia has up to three first-round picks – capital reserved for quarterbacks if the Hurts perform worse in 2021.

40-year-old former Eagles QB Michael Vic proves he still has it – NJ.com
During his time in the NFL, former Eagles quarterback Michael Vic was known not only for his strong hand but also for his speed, making several accents of plays in his 13 seasons in the league. Even at 40, Vic is still fast for his age and recently showed his speed while helping in a charity. Vic posted a 4.72 40-yard expiration time, surprising many with the published time.
Giants wanting to “explore” Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson trades – Big Blue View
If the Green Bay Packers really want to trade with Aaron Rodgers or the Seattle Seahawks are really ready to part ways with Russell Wilson and there is really no real indication that these things will happen, GM Dave Gettleman said Monday that the New York Giants will ” explore “these pathways.
Is Washington now the most dangerous breach in the NFC East? “Hogs Haven.”
The Eagles raise the back of NFC East. Not that they don’t have talent, but beyond the narrow end and running backwards, that talent has yet to be created. The Eagles will head to 2021 with a new starter below the center, two diminutive but fast wide receivers from the outside and an offensive line that is shaky at best. This will probably be a completely different conversation in a few years, but so far the level of danger is not too high.
Report: Dallas cowboys will not take Leighton Vander Ash’s fifth-year option for 2022 – Blogging The Boys
You never want to be in a situation where you don’t take the option for the fifth year of the initial round in today’s day and age and it’s definitely unfamiliar territory for cowboys. The only players who haven’t received the switch for them since 2011 are Maurice Claiborne (who re-signed a one-year deal with the team in the 2016 season, which would be his option season, by the way) and Taco Charlton (who was cut by during his third season with the team). Vander Ash played incredibly well during his rookie season and looked like a lock on the path that the cowboys first laps before him as far as the option years went. Unfortunately, his biggest problem is to stay on the field, as he has played in only 35 of 48 possible matches in his first three seasons.
4 winners and 2 losers from the NFL project in 2021 – SB Nation
LOSER: Traditional wisdom says that a writer should always appreciate a Cowboys draft because that’s how you get those sweet shares – but I really wasn’t interested in what Dallas did during the project. The team did not do enough to help Duck Prescott in the offensive line, waiting until the fourth round to get one of the two offensive officers in this class. Yes, the cowboys also needed a lot of help in defense, but every choice they made after Parsons felt like a board-based range. The whole strategy felt a little static. It was as if the war room had a handful of names they wanted to get, and she didn’t really care how it would fall around her. In addition, allowing the Eagles to trade at an extremely fair value so that they could take DeVonta Smith was too generous for a rival in the division.

The American game Covid-19 may be much closer than you think – Vox
With the launch of the US vaccine Covid-19 in December last year, White House medical adviser Anthony Fauci said the herd’s coronavirus immunity threshold could be 80 to 90 percent. The consequences were demoralizing: America would have to vaccinate up to 90 percent of its people to actually stop the spread of the virus. With approximately 20% of the population still resistant to the vaccine, near-universal vaccination seems very unlikely – leading to a recent New York Times article that suggests that herd immunity may be impossible. But recent data from Israel paints a more encouraging picture: With about 60 percent of its vaccinated population, Israel has managed to almost completely open up its economy and crush coronavirus and deaths to almost zero. The country still has some requirements – especially indoor disguise and vaccine passport requirements – but this is much closer to normal than it could afford, with any security guarantee, just months ago.
