Greg Ward, WR | PHI

Fri, May 07, 2021

NBC Sports' Dave Zangaro projected WR Greg Ward as a 2021 starter for the Eagles.

Zangaro said Ward is the favorite to start the season as the team's lot receiver. Devonta Smith and Jalen Reagor would serve as outside receivers in the Eagles' Jalen Hurts-led offense. Ward, a converted quarterback who -- incredibly -- always ends up as the team's top wideout for stretches of the season, would presumably be third or fourth in the offense's target pecking order behind Smith, Reagor, and Dallas Goedert (assuming Zach Ertz is dealt in the coming months). Ward, 25, lead Philadelphia with 79 targets, 53 receptions, and six receiving scores in 2020. He'll likely be waiver wire fodder in 2021 outside of the deepest fantasy formats.

Zach Ertz, TE | PHI

NBC Sports' Dave Zangaro reports there's a "very good chance" Zach Ertz won't play for the Eagles in 2021.

In projecting the team's depth chart, Zangaro placed Ertz atop the tight end group while conceding the veteran will likely be released or traded in the coming months. The Eagles in March gave Ertz permission to seek a trade. NFL Network reported several teams were interested in acquiring Ertz, who accounts for a massive $12.72 million cap hit this season. The Eagles are reportedly requesting a third round pick in exchange for the fading tight end. Ertz, 30, was slowed by injuries in 2020, finally falling behind the younger Dallas Goedert. Ertz -- like any tight end -- would have renewed fantasy appeal if he were to land in a pass-heavy offense with little competition for tight end targets.

Jeff Driskel, QB | DEN

Free agent QB Jeff Driskel will visit the Cowboys on Friday.

The Cowboys currently lack a legitimate backup to a rehabbing Dak Prescott (leg). Driskel has made nine different starts for three different teams, including one for the 2020 Broncos. He's had the allure of untapped upside but is now 28 years old. He wouldn't offer much juice behind Prescott, but the Cowboys have a "just press play" skill corps.
