Eagles WR Bryce Treggs could see bigger role

Philly.com - [Full Article]

Bryce Treggs started his route with the opposing cornerback giving him six yards of space. By the time he caught Carson Wentz's pass nearly 50 yards down the field, he was five yards past the closest defender.

Treggs' 58-yard reception in the second quarter of the Eagles' 28-23 loss to the New York Giants was the longest by any Eagles receiver this season. It came in Treggs' first game in a Philadelphia uniform, and the Eagles expect to see more of that in the second half of the season.

"He was very excited to play, obviously," coach Doug Pederson said. "First time to be active. He had two big catches for us. Obviously the explosive play down the field. I think you'll see more of a role for him at least in the coming weeks."

Fantasy Impact: 

The Eagles are struggling at the WR position and Treggs, although inexperienced, at least brings a deep-threat to the lineup and that paid off in his first game after the team released Josh Huff. Treggs may be worth monitoring if you're struggling for a WR but he can't really be trusted in lineups until we see more.
