The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to have wide receiver Alshon Jeffery back in the lineup on Sunday when they host the Seattle Seahawks, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He missed Week 11 with an ankle injury and was questionable for Week 12.

Schefter is reporting the team is not expected to have running back Jordan Howard or wide receiver Nelson Agholor for the game. Both are listed as questionable. In Howard’s absence, Miles Sanders will get the start and Boston Scott and Jay Ajayi will get work behind him. In Agholor’s absence, Jordan Matthews, Mack Collins, and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside will get some work. The team promoted Greg Ward from the practice squad on Saturday.

Fantasy football analysis: Eagles offense

Jeffery is a decent start, but faces a solid Seahawks pass defense. Nobody else is even worth a sniff in your fantasy starting lineups.

In the running game, Sanders is the start. Scott and Ajayi will cut into his ceiling, but he is the clear fantasy start of the three.
