Philadelphia Eagles tight ends Dallas Goedert (forearm) and Grant Calcaterra (ankle) did not practice with the team on Wednesday. Goedert broke his right forearm in Week 9, required surgery and hasn't practiced since, but the Eagles were hoping that he might be able to return to play in Sunday's showdown against the San Francisco 49ers. It's not a good start to the week for the 28-year-old, but he still has two more days of practice left. If Goedert does make it back and plays in Week 13, he'll be at risk of having his snaps limited in his first game back. Jack Stoll has just two receptions on four targets for 17 scoreless yards in the two games Goedert has missed, so he should continue to be ignored for fantasy purposes if Goedert misses his third game this weekend.

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) is pushing to play Sunday when the Eagles host the San Francisco 49ers. The tight end has missed two games with a fractured forearm, but a bye week mixed in has given him extra time to recover. If he's not able to make it back against San Francisco, a return for the Week 14 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys seems fairly certain. In his place, the Eagles have been starting Jack Stoll, who hasn't done anything of relevance for fantasy football. Wide receiver DeVonta Smith has been the biggest beneficiary, averaging over 100 yards per game in Goedert's absence. Keep an eye on injury updates throughout the week for Goedert.

Despite already being ruled out for the Week 12 game on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) continues to trend in the right direction with his fractured forearm. Goedert did a cardio workout on Friday and seems to be in great spirits while indicating he's healing quicker than initially expected. "We have high hopes that Dallas is going to be back. Again, I don't know when. I think that's unfair to Dallas...There is a reason he's not an IR," head coach Nick Sirianni said last week. Goedert fractured his forearm in Week 9 and the Eagles had their bye in Week 10, so this Sunday will be his second missed game. There's a chance the 28-year-old could be back in Week 13 for a showdown against the San Francisco 49ers. Until he return, Jack Stoll should be the Eagles' starting TE, but he's not on the fantasy radar.
Nov 24, 2023 5:19 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) was unable to practice on Friday. He has officially been ruled out for Week 12 versus the Buffalo Bills. Although it was reported that Goedert has been trending in the right direction and won't be placed on injured reserve, he will still miss a second consecutive game on Sunday. Perhaps Week 13 (versus the 49ers) or Week 14 (versus the Cowboys) will represent a more likely return date for the talented playmaker. In his absence, Jack Stoll will operate as the Eagles' top tight end. However, he remains off the fantasy radar.

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) remains a DNP on Wednesday's estimated practice report after the team held a walkthrough following their Monday night win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Fellow tight end Grant Calcaterra (ankle) was also a DNP after getting hurt on Monday night. It's no surprise that Goedert still isn't practicing since suffering a fractured right forearm in Week 9 that required surgery. The 28-year-old was expected to miss multiple weeks, but Philly never put him on Injured Reserve, suggesting they think be back before missing four games. The Eagles had a bye in Week 10. Goedert is highly unlikely to play this Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, but he could be back for a Week 13 showdown against the San Francisco 49ers. We'll continue to monitor his practice status.
Nov 22, 2023 7:21 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) was unable to practice all week and has officially been ruled out for Monday night's contest against the Kansas City Chiefs to close out Week 11 action. It's no surprise after Goedert suffered a fractured forearm in the Week 9 contest. The Eagles had their bye last week, but Goedert is expected to miss at least two more games while he heals up. The 28-year-old has not been placed on Injured Reserve, which would require him to miss at least four games. For now, fantasy managers must stay patient and keep him stashed on their benches. In the meantime, receivers A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith and Olamide Zaccheaus should see more targets, while tight ends Jack Stoll and Albert Okwuegbunam share the load at the tight end position for the Eagles.
Nov 19, 2023 11:03 AM EST
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said he has "high hopes" that tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) won't miss more than three weeks. "There's a reason he's not on Injured Reserve yet," Sirianni said. Goedert fractured his forearm in Week 9 and the Eagles were on bye in Week 10. The 28-year-old will miss his first game with the injury on Monday night when the team faces the Kansas City Chiefs in a Super Bowl rematch. He probably won't be able to return in Week 12 against the Buffalo Bills, either, but there's a chance Philly will have him available again in Week 13 in a showdown against the San Francisco 49ers. Until then, the Eagles will likely use some combination of Jack Stoll and Albert Okwuegbunam at the position.
Nov 18, 2023 12:06 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) was the only member of the team's active roster that wasn't on the practice field on Friday. Goedert suffered a fractured forearm in Week 9 and is expected to miss three to four games as a result. It's no surprise he's not practicing coming off last week's bye, and fantasy managers are going to have to be patient and keep him stashed in the meantime. It remains to be seen how the Eagles make up for the loss of Goedert on Monday night in a Super Bowl rematch against the Kansas City Chiefs. We'd expect both Jack Stoll and Albert Okwuegbunam to be involved, but neither player is a priority must-add off the waiver wire.
Nov 17, 2023 2:21 PM EST
Philadelphia Phillies tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm), who is recovering from a broken forearm suffered in Week 9, did not take part in practice on Thursday. Goedert needed surgery to fix his forearm and is expected to miss anywhere from three to four weeks, so fantasy managers will need to keep him in an IR spot until then. The 28-year-old should officially be ruled out for Monday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday. With Goedert out of the picture for a while, the Eagles are expected to lean on some combination of Jack Stoll and Albert Okwuegbunam at the tight end position, although neither player is expected to be much of a fantasy option, outside of maybe the deepest leagues.
Nov 16, 2023 3:57 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) is likely to have surgery on Monday after suffering a fractured right forearm in the Week 9 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. It's reminiscent of the injury he had last year when he missed five games, so he's a clear candidate to be placed on Injured Reserve, which would require him to miss at least four games. The hope is that Goedert will be out around four weeks after undergoing surgery. It's a crushing blow for the Eagles and for fantasy managers, but with Goedert potentially returning just in time for the start of the fantasy players, he needs to be stashed in an IR spot in all leagues. In the meantime, the Eagles will probably roll with some combination of Jack Stoll and Albert Okwuegbunam, but neither of them will be guaranteed to be reliable fantasy streamers moving forward.
Nov 6, 2023 12:04 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) suffered a fractured forearm in Week 9 and will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine if there is any further damage. Goedert is set to miss time and is an injured reserve candidate, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Goedert went down during the third quarter of Sunday's eventual 28-23 win over the division-rival Dallas Cowboys while he was stiff-arming his way to extra yardage on a catch-and-run. The Eagles have a Week 10 bye on tap but losing their 28-year-old standout tight end for extended time is a significant blow to their high-powered offense. We'll have to wait on Monday's MRI results for a clearer return timetable, but fantasy managers should be planning other arrangements for Week 11's Super Bowl rematch with the Kansas City Chiefs. Jack Stoll and Albert Okwuegbunam are some names next in line for Philadelphia behind Goedert, but neither of which are likely to offer immediate streaming viability.
Nov 6, 2023 12:46 AM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) caught three of four targets for 50 yards before exiting the game early during the team's 28-23 win over the Dallas Cowboys. The 28-year-old had his arm bent awkwardly on a stiff arm attempt during his catch-and-run down the sideline and never returned. The severity of the injury is still unknown, but Goedert has the bye week to try to get right before the Eagles face the Kansas City Chiefs in a rematch of last season's Super Bowl. If active, the Eagles' tight end would be considered a top-12 option in what could be a shootout. We should know more about the severity of the injury sometime this week.
Nov 5, 2023 9:13 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) exited Sunday's NFC East clash with the Dallas Cowboys. He suffered the injury in the third quarter, departing to receive X-rays while favoring his right arm. If he doesn't return in Week 9, he'll finish with three catches for 50 yards. Of course, fantasy managers will anxiously await an update, especially since Goedert had been on a roll entering the contest, catching a touchdown in two of his last three games.
Nov 5, 2023 6:52 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert will take on the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9. The 28-year-old tight end has seen a healthy target share over the past four weeks but fell outside the top 15 last week against the Washington Commanders when he caught four passes for 36 yards. With that said, Goedert has a chance to bounce back this week against Dallas. The Cowboys' defense has been great in 2023 but struggles against the tight end position. They allow the eighth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends and are tied for the second-most touchdowns allowed to the position. Dallas will have their hands full stopping the dominant A.J. Brown and secondary receiver DeVonta Smith, leaving Goedert an opening to produce for fantasy managers. Consider the veteran a top-six option in Week 9.
Nov 3, 2023 8:21 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught four of seven targets for 36 yards during the team's 38-31 win over the Washington Commanders. After finishing with 15 or more fantasy points in two of the three previous games, the 28-year-old was held in check by the Commanders for the second time this season. Washington seems to have Goedert's number despite struggling to stop tight ends this year. The Eagles threw the ball 38 times Sunday, tied for the second-most times this year, and Goedert ended up with seven targets. Unfortunately, he failed to do much with them. Better days are ahead for the veteran, but next week's matchup against Dallas will be tough. He will be considered a low-end TE1 in that matchup.
Oct 29, 2023 5:46 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert will go on the road to take on the Washington Commanders in Week 8. The 28-year-old has been heavily involved the past three weeks compared to his opening month's worth of production. He now gets a rematch with the Commanders, who shut him down back in Week 4, holding him to just two receptions for 25 yards. Since Week 4, Washington has struggled to spot fantasy tight ends and currently allows the ninth-most points per game to the position. Goedert has seen five or more targets in all but two games this year and is a solid mid-tier TE1 against the Commanders, even if they held him in check during their last meeting. Keep firing up the Eagles starting tight end until he gives you a reason not to.
Oct 27, 2023 8:55 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught all five of his targets for 77 yards and a touchdown during the team's 31-17 win over the Miami Dolphins. While this was the 28-year-old's second-lowest target share since Week 2, he was dominant with his targets, reaching a season-high 15.4 yards per reception and finding the end zone for the second time in three weeks. Goedert's target share and production over the past three weeks have been promising after a slow start to the season, and he should be considered a solid mid-range TE1 moving forward. He will get a rematch with the Washington Commanders in Week 8, who held him to just two receptions for 25 yards back in Week 4.
Oct 23, 2023 9:51 AM EST
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith (groin) and tight end Dallas Goedert (hamstring) have been removed from the injury report and will play in Week 7 versus the Miami Dolphins. Both players were cleared to suit up despite practicing in a limited capacity on Friday. Smith has been relatively quiet over the last two weeks, logging just six catches for 50 yards. Over the four weeks prior, though, he racked up 22 catches, 284 yards, and a pair of touchdowns. Despite his underwhelming play as of late, Smith will rank as a fantasy WR2 in what should be an offense-heavy matchup this Sunday. Meanwhile, Goedert has delivered increased production recently, totaling 13 catches, 159 yards, and one touchdown over the last two weeks. It can be difficult to emerge as a reliable fantasy option in such a crowded offense, but Goedert is trending up and ranks as a mid-range fantasy TE1 in Week 7.
Oct 20, 2023 4:12 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (groin) was limited in practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Goedert could draw a questionable tag for the Week 7 tilt versus the Miami Dolphins. However, a return to a full practice on Friday would put him on the right track to play on Sunday Night Football. If the 28-year-old is a game-time decision this weekend, fantasy managers will be in a dilemma with the game coming on Sunday night. Ultimately, we'd be surprised if Goedert was unable to play. He has been a bit of a disappointment in fantasy through the first six weeks (just one touchdown), but he still checks in as the TE10 in half-PPR scoring heading into Week 7.
Oct 19, 2023 6:27 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (groin) was limited in practice on Wednesday with a groin injury. Goedert spent some time in the blue medical tent during his team's Week 6 loss to the New York Jets, which could be where he picked up the groin issue that was hindering him on Wednesday. Fantasy managers counting on the Philly tight end will want to monitor practice reports for the remainder of the week as the Eagles gear up to face off against the Miami Dolphins. If Goedert can't play, expect Jack Stoll to see some extra snaps.
