2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
After five up and down years in Chicago, Alshon Jeffery signed a one-year "prove it" contract with the Eagles, instantly becoming the No. 1 wide receiver on a team devoid of any viable receiving threats in 2016. Joining Jeffery in Philadelphia is fellow free agent wide receiver Torrey Smith, who will likely be the deep option for Carson Wentz alongside Jeffery and slot receiver Jordan Matthews.

Although Jeffery as never been a big touchdown scorer, with only one double-digit TD season to his credit, when given over 130 targets he has proven to be capable of at least 1100 yards and seven touchdowns. The biggest question surrounding Jeffery is his ability to play a full-16 game season, as injuries and suspensions have limited him to a full slate of games only twice in his career.

From a consistency standpoint, Jeffery lags behind other No. 1 wide receivers, with only one career top-ten finish according to FFtoday's fantasy consistency calculator tool. But with a new offense and playing in a contract year, Jeffery could deliver one of his best seasons and finish 2017 as one of the steals of the draft.

News From The Past 90 Days
Zach Ertz confident heading into regular season
Philly TE expects to see more targets
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Sep 6, 10:36 am

Philadelphia Eagles
With defenses paying attention to Jeffery and Smith on the outside, Ertz believes he’ll have more room to work in the middle of the field. “I’ll probably have more targets with Torrey and Alshon,” Ertz said, via Philly.com. “I think that’s the reason you bring in those guys because [defenses] are not able to focus primarily on one area of the field, with where in the past … since [Jeremy] Maclin left, we’ve been an inside-the-numbers team.” (ProFootballTalk)

FFToday's Take: Philadelphia focused on retooling their passing game this offseason and they look primed to improve in 2017. Zach Ertz, Alshon Jeffery and even Torrey Smith should all benefit from the Eagles' pass heavy offense (PHI finished with sixth most passing attempts in 2016) as Carson Wentz continues to get better in his second season as the starter.


Jordan Matthews headed to Buffalo
Bills shakeup wide receiver group
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 11, 1:45 pm

Buffalo Bills
The Eagles made a shocking move on Friday, trading away wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft to the Buffalo Bills for cornerback Ronald Darby, the team announced Friday. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: The Bills have made significant changes to the wide receiver group over the last few days by acquiring Anquan Boldin, Mathews and trading star Sammy Watkins to the Rams. The Eagles have been talking up Nelson Agholor all pre-season and now it seems he's in line for the starting slot position with Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith on the outside. Matthews should step into the starting lineup in Buffalo and will see boost in fantasy value.


Jordan Matthews at risk of losing snaps?
Nelson Agholor enjoying strong camp
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 7, 5:40 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
The speculation that Jordan Matthews will lose playing time at slot wide receiver to Nelson Agholor was not quieted by offensive coordinator Frank Reich, who said Monday that the plan at the position “is a little bit different than last year.” “Right now, the whole receiver room is more competitive. ... So yeah, I think it is a little bit different than last year. I don’t know how it’s going to play out. Is it going to be a reduced role? Is it not? ... That’s going to be determined … by how he plays and how things play out in that room competitively,” Reich said. (Philadelphia Inquirer)

FFToday's Take: Reich suggested Matthews can play outside and there will be four-wide packages on occasion, but he also said he doesn't want to take his tight ends off the field either. Considering the team added Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith before Agholor's "awakening", Matthews very much appears to be in a fight for playing time. Owners would be wise to consider him a low-eend WR4 at best and start considering Agholor at the end of drafts.


Alshon Jeffery enjoyed best spring since 2013
Eagles WR coach happy with former, current pupil
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 26, 5:10 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles WR coach Mike Groh believes Alshon Jeffery had his best offseason since perhaps 2013, when Jeffery burst onto the scene and set career highs in catches (89) and yards (1,421) while finding the end zone seven times. "He and I have a history together … and I understand the way that he works and goes about his business. I think the spring that he's had is as good as he's had since maybe 2013. Pleased with where he is physically, mentally I think he is in a good place," Groh said. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Groh was Jeffery's position coach from 2013-15, so this is more than just run-of-the-mill coach-speak. Regardless, staying on the field has long been Jeffery's biggest bugaboo, so if he can stay healthy, he stands a solid chance at matching or topping his career highs. Given his injury history, the ex-Bear should be consider a WR2, albeit one with WR1 upside.
