Thursday Night Takeaways
- If you need a roster spot and don't have an IR slot: drop Carson Wentz. All indications are he's weeks away from playing and Rodney Harrison said in pre-game that Wentz did not look good in warmups and Harrison got an up-close look at him. And, who knows how much rust will be there when he returns? He's the future in Philly and they will not rush him back. - If you need a depth RB off your bench - consider Darren Sproles on waivers next week. He started the game and appears to be the preferred change of pace back in Philly. Sproles was targeted 7 times out of the backfield as well, hauling in 4 catches. - Matt Ryan really is awful and Steve Sarkisian doesn't do him any favors in the play calling department. If you own Matt Ryan (and you shouldn't): add someone else before they lock up on Sunday and drop this dude during next week's waiver period. Stream QB's. Leave QB empty. Just don't use Matt Ryan. Even Julio Jones cannot save him. - Devonta Freeman's workload has dipped even further as he is in a full timeshare with Tevin Coleman. RB touches tonight: Freeman: 9, Coleman: 10. Coleman appears to be taking the lead role in terms of carries edging out Freeman 9 to 6. And Freeman is getting more work in the passing game out-targeting Coleman 3:1. And Freeman left the game early with a knee injury too and did not return. - This Philly receiving corps is all Ertz and Agholor until Wentz and/or Jeffery come back. Ertz and Agholor each had 10 targets, Sproles had his 7 and the rest of the team combined for 8 targets.
