2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: TAKE A STAB WITH DONNELL PUMPHREY IN PHILLY

                                                           

The Philadelphia Eagles rivaled the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots going into training camp in terms of how crowded their backfield was and through two preseasons games, things are still muddied up in the City of Brotherly Love.  However an interesting report came out early Sunday that stated BOTH Eagles power back LeGarrette Blount and scatback Wendell Smallwood could find their roster spots in jeopardy given their very poor preseason performances.  Blount once again is showing he can't play unless he is in New England and Smallwood has not made good on his chances to show what he can do.  Meanwhile rookie fourth-round pick Donnell Pumphrey has been the talk of camp and is getting increased run with the first-team offense which is always a key development when manning for waiver pickups.  While standing just 5-9 and 176, Pumphrey has been making a name for himself already and he could very well be moving into a starting spot if this keeps up.  Darren Sproles will remain a decent part of the offense which caps Pumphrey's expected impact a bit but a preemptive strike here is s good idea to see where this ends up.  The worst thing that can happen is you drop Pumphrey before the season but the best result would be him becoming a starter in a wide open backfield.
