Respected ESPN NFL and fantasy football analyst Mike Clay released the 2019 Eagles offensive projections on Thursday via Twitter. 

Clay has Carson Wentz throwing for over 4,000 yards, 31 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions with 208 rushing yards and one score on the ground in 15 games played. That's a heck of a season!

Interestingly, Clay has Nelson Agholor with 37 less targets than last season and Alshon Jeffery with an additional 12 targets, giving Agholor just 39 receptions and Jeffery 69. However, Agholor, in his prime, is more likely to play 16 games than Jeffery—who has played 16 games just once over the last four seasons. 

Clay has DeSean Jackson with 44 catches for 738 yards and just four scores. 

Clay has Ertz finishing with a line of 87/882/7 compared to 42/445/5 for Dallas Goedert, which seems reasonable. 

Neither running back, Miles Sanders nor Jordan Howard, is projected by Clay to rush for more than 700 yards, while Sanders is expected to lead the RBs in pass catching with just 30 receptions, 238 yards, and a score through the air. 

Defensively, Fletcher Cox is projected to tally 8.9 sacks and Nigel Bradham is the team's projected leading tackler with 104. 

As a team, Clay has the Eagles projected to win 10.6 games, fourth best in the NFL. He has them as the second best offense and eighth best defense in the NFL, with an overall rank of 2.
