WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

The Eagles re-signed Richard Rodgers.

Rodgers has played well as a depth tight end for the Eagles, so this was a natural fit, even with a new coaching staff. From a fantasy perspective, Rodgers will likely need a Zach Ertz trade to find any redraft value before the season.

Richard Rodgers (shin) is out for the rest of today.

Rodgers did not have any receptions before leaving against the Cardinals, with Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert handling most of the work at tight end for the Eagles. Hopefully Rodgers' injury isn't too serious and he can get back on the field for the final two weeks of the regular season.

The Eagles have signed Richard Rodgers.

Rodgers is back in Philadelphia and will settle in as depth behind Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert. The veteran isn’t currently on the fantasy radar.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Washington is releasing Richard Rodgers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Rodgers was hoping to make the team and have a role on a wide-open depth chart at tight end, but Washington is going with younger options. The veteran will likely land elsewhere at some point this fall.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

The Redskins signed Richard Rodgers.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the deal, and he adds that Rodgers' dad is a defensive assistant coach for the Redskins, so Washington is a cool landing spot for the veteran tight end. The Redskins will have a much different looking tight end room this year.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

The Eagles have signed Richard Rodgers.

Rodgers could be insurance for Zach Ertz (ribs) ahead of the season finale, but ideally the Eagles will have their star tight end for a win-and-in game against New York. If Ertz were to sit, Rodgers would be clearly behind Dallas Goedert and Joshua Perkins.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

The Eagles signed Richard Rodgers to a two-year contract.

Rodgers appeared in just seven games last season because of a preseason knee injury, but he was a designated-to-return off injured reserve player, which shows the Eagles value him on game days. As the No. 3 tight end behind Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, Rodgers isn’t a recommended fantasy option

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers catches one pass in Week 16.

Rodgers gained seven yards on his lone reception versus Houston. This was the former Packers' first reception with the Eagles, as he's spent most of the season on injured reserve.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

The Eagles have activated Richard Rodgers.

Rodgers just returned to practice a few days ago, but he's already ready to play this weekend against the Saints. Rodgers is not a recommended fantasy pickup, but he'll look to contribute for the Eagles in real life.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

The Eagles have designated Richard Rodgers to return from injured reserve.

Rodgers suffered a knee injury in the preseason, and he will now have a 21-day window to practice as the team decides whether or not to activate him from IR. It sounds like Rodgers will end up contributing for Philadelphia this season, but he's highly unlikely to become a fantasy option behind Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers (knee) has been placed on injured reserve.

Rodgers signed with the Eagles this offseason as depth at tight end, but he was never expected to have a big role with Zach Ertz and rookie Dallas Goedert ahead of him on the depth chart. The former Packer is highly unlikely to be one of Philadelphia's injured players that's designated to return this year.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers (knee) is week-to-week.

Rodgers injured his knee on a touchdown reception in Thursday's preseason game, and now he's in jeopardy of missing the season opener. Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert are the top two tight ends in Philadelphia, so Rodgers was off the fantasy radar.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers (knee) is out for the rest of tonight's preseason game.

Rodgers was injured on a touchdown catch in the third quarter. The injury didn't appear to be serious, so Rodgers might not miss much time with this; but his night is done.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Tight end Richard Rodgers is signing a one-year deal with the Eagles, according to Ian Rapoport.

Free agent signings are starting to pick back up again, as Rodgers is the second tight end to sign today (Troy Niklas signed with New England), and quarterbacks Robert Griffin III and Matt Cassel also signed with teams. Rodgers spent his first four seasons in Green Bay and looked like he might emerge as one of the league's best after he caught 58 passes for 510 yards and eight touchdowns during his second season,  but his role decreased over the last two seasons. He'll now join an Eagles tight end group that lost Trey Burton in free agency and released veteran Brent Celek. Philadelphia uses a ton of two- and three-tight end sets, so Rodgers should get a good amount of playing time. Zach Ertz is clearly the fantasy tight end to own for the Eagles, though.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers (shoulder) is out against the Vikings.

Rodgers has been ruled out for the night and didn't have any receptions before leaving the game. Lance Kendricks will have close to a full-time role with Rodgers down.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers makes an impact in Aaron Rodgers' return.

Rodgers caught four passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in the 31-24 loss. The 25-year-old was able to catch one down the seam for a 24-yard score in the fourth quarter, and he also had another big gain of 36 yards. Rodgers is unlikely to have a repeat performance in Week 16 against the Vikings; he can remain on the waiver wire.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers doesn't catch a pass in Week 14.

Rodgers was targeted once against the Browns. It's possible he starts to emerge as an option if Aaron Rodgers returns, but ideally you have better TE options for your fantasy lineup.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers gets two targets against the Bucs.

Rodgers caught one pass in the Week 13 win, gaining four yards. He's not a fantasy option right now.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers catches one pass in Week 12.

Rodgers caught a quick pop pass on a run-pass option that he took for 25 yards down the middle of the field. He's not a recommended fantasy option in an offense that doesn't run through the tight end, especially without Aaron Rodgers in the lineup.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers catches one pass in win over Chicago.

It went for eight yards. Rodgers will get more playing time with Martellus Bennett gone, but it probably won't lead to fantasy value as he splits time with Lance Kendricks.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers catches one pass in Week 9.

Rodgers gained five yards on his lone reception. Green Bay's tight ends haven't delivered much fantasy value this season, so Rodgers doesn't need to be on fantasy rosters.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers gets one target in Week 5.

Rodgers caught his target for a 16-yard reception. Troy Aikman said on the FOX broadcast that Aaron Rodgers wants to get Richard Rodgers more involved moving forward, but he's not a reliable fantasy option.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers catches two passes for 22 yards in Week 2.

Rodgers received four targets in the loss to the Falcons. He's an asset for the Packers in real life, but he's not a fantasy option right now.

Richard Rodgers catches 34-yard touchdown in playoff win.

It was Rodgers' only catch of the game, but a key one, as it came on the Packers' first possession of the game. Rodgers put a great double move with a simple head fake on Sean Lee to get by him and Aaron Rodgers hit him for six.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers catches touchdown pass in win over Vikings.

Rodgers caught two passes for 20 yards and a touchdown against the Vikings. With Jared Cook back in the lineup, don’t rely on Rodgers for production at the tight end position in your fantasy lineup.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Richard Rodgers takes a back seat to Jared Cook in Week 11 loss.

Rodgers caught four passes for 28 yards, and is no longer on the fantasy radar with Cook back in the lineup.

Richard Rodgers | Eagles TE

Rodgers fails to make an impact in Packers' loss to Titans.

The tight end caught four passes for 27 yards. With just 175 yards and one touchdown this season, Rodgers can stay on the waiver wire, especially with Jared Cook expected back in Week 11.
