The Eagles went from being able to wrap up a second straight NFC East crown at home to three weeks later being locked out of the postseason fun. The Eagles won 10 games, but will have nothing more to show for it. It never should have come to this.
The NFL Preseason has entered its final week and rosters around the league are starting to take shape. Teams are beginning to prepare for the regular season which begins on Thursday, September 4 when the defending champion Seattle Seahawks host the Green Bay Packers.
As the NFL continues to march towards the regular season, fantasy football players across the globe are preparing for their respective drafts. Plenty of things can happen throughout the course of a season that require roster moves being made, but having a good draft can springboard any team to a fantasy championship.

A record 73 underclassmen, including six first-team All-Americans, have been approved for the NFL draft on Saturday.
