Eagles | Alshon Jeffery posts good outing

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 14:16:10 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery caught seven passes for 92 yards and scored a touchdown in a 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: This is a big step forward for Jeffery, especially against a solid Chiefs defense. Still, one good outing does not make a season. Jeffery has had issues staying healthy, and he truly needs to post back-to-back good games to impress fantasy owners. Next week's home game against the New York Giants, an easier opponent, should go a ways toward determining Jeffery's status.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery likely to draw Josh Norman

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 09:05:31 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is expected to be shadowed by Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman in Week 1, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Fantasy Tip: It's the first of many brutal pre-bye matchups for Jeffery, who is likely to face primary coverage in the coming weeks from the likes of Jamoris Jenkins, Casey Heyward and Patrick Peterson, to name a few. Jeffrey has the talent to win this battles on occasion, but his injury history and potential matchups make him a prime bust candidate as his current ADP.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery catches TD

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 20:00:24 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery caught two passes for 35 yards and one touchdown against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery will be at least a starter for the Eagles this season and could be the leading receiver as the season goes on. He should be able to improve on his 2016 stats and can be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery playing catch-up

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 08:23:28 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery did not practice for about a week and a half during training camp in the preseason or participate in team drills, leading wide receivers coach Mike Groh to conclude Jeffery was "behind" his teammates when it comes to his knowledge of the playbook.

Fantasy Tip: The subject comes up because Jeffrey ran a wrong route on the third-and-12 play in the Eagles' last preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. Philadelphia's priced free-agent acquisition is no stranger to the training room and owners need to keep that in mind when deciding whether or not they should draft him this summer. He's a dicey WR2 with WR1 upside and a brutal schedule to begin the season.

Dolphins | DeVante Parker compared to Alshon Jeffery

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 13:45:32 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is comparable to Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery but with more speed, according to QB Jay Cutler.

Fantasy Tip: Parker improved his stats from 2015 to 2016 and finished with 744 yards and four touchdowns. He will be a top-three receiver for the Dolphins this season and should receive a solid amount of targets. He can be considered a No. 3 fantasy receiver in most leagues.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery still limited

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 13:29:46 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) was limited to individual drills during practice Saturday, Aug. 12. The Eagles may consider not playing Jeffery in the second preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery recently returned to practice but is still not ready to participate in all drills. He should be ready for the start of the start of the season, but owners will need to monitor the situation. Jeffery is expected to be the main target in the passing game for the Eagles and should be seen as a No. 2 fantasy receiver.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) was limited to individual drills during practice Tuesday, Aug. 8, and is not expected to play in the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Aug. 10.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles likely are taking it slow with Jeffery at this time and probably will have him play later in the preseason. Jeffery should be the team's top receiver this season and will see plenty of targets. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery padded up

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 06:19:24 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is dressed for practice Monday, Aug. 7, after he was limited the previous day.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery has all the makings of a WR1, but his propensity for injuries reduces him to a good WR2 candidate.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery back at practice

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 11:25:59 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) returned to practice Sunday, Aug. 6, after missing the previous four practices due to a shoulder strain.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffrey's durability - he has a history of shoulder problems as well as soft-tissue injuries - is about the only thing keeping him from being a consistent fantasy WR1. Thus, he's a tough prospect to draft in the third round in fantasy drafts and should be treated more as a high-upside WR2.
