Philadelphia CB Nnamdi Asomugha has returned to practice for the Eagles. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia CB Nnamdi Asomugha has returned to practice with the Eagles. He was injured in practice earlier this week in a collision with safety Nate Allen. Asomugha was tested for concussion symptoms but was cleared to return after no symptoms were found. The Eagles play New England in their next preseason game on Monday.

Analysis: This is good news for the Eagles, who gave Asomugha a five-year, $60 million contract before last season. He is a key piece to Philadelphia's defense, which will be tested by a division that includes the strong offenses of the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys. Philadelphia as a unit is a Top 5 fantasy option most weeks and Asomugha will be a big part of their success because of his ability to defend the pass. He has less value in IDP formats.
