Projecting the Eagles offensive depth chart for...


The Eagles and Falcons will meet one week from today and as players return to the NovaCare Complex from the holiday weekend, preparation will begin with competitive urgency.

The 53 man depth chart and 16 man practice squads are both complete, although both are fluid as the Eagles shift players into a depth chart for game day.

Landon Dickerson’s status is still uncertain, but there’s a chance he could see game action in Atlanta.

Here’s our Week 1 projection of Philadelphia’s depth chart for Sunday afternoon.

Hurts is the starter and should eat against an average Falcons defense, while Joe Flacco will be the backup. Gardner Minshew will likely be inactive.

Miles Sanders will get the start, but Nick Sirianni will feed both Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell in the passing game. Jordan Howard or Jason Huntley could also be called up.

Smith is the man at wide receiver and depending on the numbers, Travis Fulgham could be called up behind him.

Reagor will get run on the outside and in the slot as Shane Steichen rotates the second-year wideout and Quez Watkins all over the formation.

Ward is as consistent as they come and he’ll see plenty of snaps, while Quez Watkins and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside will get slot snaps as well.

The Eagles will run less ’12 personnel’ in 2021, but the two tight formations will still be highly sought out. Ertz is the guy, while Dallas Goedert is versatile enough to slide out in space.

Isaac Seumalo is the starter, but Landon Dickerson’s presence hovers over the entire situation. Brett Toth could see time, while Ross Pierschbacher or Sua Opeta could be call ups.
