Top 10 Best Philadelphia Eagles Players Going Into the 2018 SeasonThe champions of Super Bowl LII had an amazing roster last year that brought them to the big game. They’ve now signed and released key players, but who is the best of those guys? We’re looking at the top ten best Philadelphia Eagles players going into the 2018 season.
The Top Ten
After an MVP caliber season ended on an ACL injury, many fans hope he’ll get right back on track in 2018. And he will. He’s the best player by a mile on this super bowl champion Eagles team, and he can bring them into a Patriot- like dynasty.
Cox finished 2017 with 5.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and a touchdown, and a well deserved super bowl win. With Michael Bennett at his side, he’ll cause chaos the whole season.
Seattle made a huge mistake getting rid of him. He’s still as disruptive as a lineman as he ever was, and he’ll band together with Fletcher Cox to become one of the best pass-rushing duos in the NFL.
He’s old and off of a missed season. But I have faith the future hall of famer can hold up. He’s the best offensive lineman on a incredibly talented Philadelphia o-line.
He’s a top five tight end in the NFL currently, having caught 8 touchdowns and had over 800 yards receiving. Once Gronk retires, it could very well be Ertz and Travis Kelce battling it out for the league’s best tight end.
Now that the Eagles aren’t the underdogs anymore, he can put away that dog mask. It appears the Eagles are on yet another “Lane” to Super Bowl LIII (see what I did there... no one appreciates football puns). Anyway, Lane Johnson has been one of the league’s best linemen for years, but not many have recognized him for it until during the 2017-2018 playoffs. He’ll continue to dominate in 2018.
Finally, he’s somewhere where he can produce. He totaled 789 receiving yards for 9 touchdowns in 2017, and I expect that number to either stay the same or increase in 2018. Needless to say, Jeffery is their number one receiver.
He had a solid 2017 season, intercepting two passes and garnering up one sack, and a forced fumble. He’s been a good safety for years, and will continue that trend in 2018.
768 yards for 8 touchdowns isn’t bad at all. The Eagles have their cemented number two wide receiver in Agholor, who produces number almost the same as Alshon Jeffery.
The idiotic Dolphins decide to trade their number one running back right before the trade deadline in October 2017. He wasn’t producing much in Miami, but rushed for a little above 400 yards in Philadelphia and scored a touchdown. Now with LeGarrette Blount gone, it’s up to him to assume the role of top running back on the roster.
