Eagles | Alshon Jeffery has impressed so far

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 11:13:41 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery may be having the best offseason in a few years, according to wide receivers coach Mike Groh. Groh coached Jeffery for three seasons with the Chicago Bears and he believes his receiver is having his best offseason since 2013. Jeffery is at a good place physically and mentally as he continues to develop chemistry with his new QB Carson Wentz.

Fantasy Tip: It's easy to be excited about a player in a new uniform, especially when Jeffery has the connection and familiarity he has in Groh. Jeffery is somewhat of a risk, though, as he has missed 11 games the past two seasons. When healthy he has WR1 upside, but he's better suited as a WR2. Wentz also has Jordan Matthews, Torrey Smith, Zach Ertz and other playmakers to throw to.

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 18:23:33 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery said he and QB Carson Wentz and the rest of the offense are starting to click.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery's injury history makes him a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option, but you have to start thinking about taking the gamble when it comes time to draft your WR2.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz said he loves what WR Alshon Jeffery brings to the table and is looking forward to developing chemistry with the receiver.

I'm just looking forward to continuing to build that relationship."

Fantasy Tip: Injuries are a constant concern with Jeffery, but he could shine as the likely go-to target in Philadelphia. His upside makes him worth the gamble as a WR2.

Sun, 14 May 2017 18:11:04 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery has embraced the coaching staff and has been competing at a high level since joining the team, according to head coach Doug Pederson, and Pederson said the hope for the offseason is to have Jeffery and QB Carson Wentz on the same page.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery's upside is undeniable, but injuries have derailed him throughout his career. He should immediately become the go-to target for Wentz, and he is worth the gamble as a low-end WR2.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery signs with Eagles

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 13:08:12 -0800

Free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery (Bears) is signing with the Philadelphia Eagles on a one-year, $14 million deal Thursday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: This will end up being one of the biggest moves of the day. Carson Wentz now has a respectable receiving corps to throw to with Alshon Jeffery and Jordan Matthews heading that group. As stated earlier, Jeffery remains in the low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 conversation.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery favoring Eagles

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 11:33:29 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery is leaning towards signing with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery, one of the most coveted players on the free-agent market, makes sense for the Eagles. Philadelphia really needs receiving help in addition to Jordan Matthews, and Torrey Smith doesn't exactly scratch that itch. If Jeffery does join the Eagles, he'll remain a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 with impressive sophomore quarterback Carson Wentz.
