The longest reception by an Eagles wideout went for 10 yards in their opening preseason game. It belonged to Paul Turner, an undrafted rookie from Louisiana Tech, who also was the team's leading receiver for the evening, with six catches for 34 yards.

The two longest receptions went to tight ends - 19 yards to Zach Ertz and 16 to M.J. McFarland. With Jordan Matthews sidelined by a knee injury, the field was wide open for 2015 No. 1 pick Nelson Agholor, 2014 third-round pick Josh Huff, former Giants second-round pick Rueben Randle, or former Rams and Ravens starter Chris Givens to step up and make a case.

None of them did. Turner was the lone bright spot. Eagles quarterbacks passed for 114 yards, with several drops.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Eagle receivers couldn't get a lot of separation against the Bucs. Randle played uninspired, admitting camp has taken a toll on him. Agholor played 32 snaps and was target twice but didn't catch a pass. This is an area to watch for potential fantasy owners to hopefully see some improvement in their next contest. Outside of Matthews, there isn't a lot of excitement from a fantasy standpoint right now.
