JJ Arcega-Whiteside 'made a major case for playing time'

Eagle's beat reporter Lori M. Nichols feels that Arcega-Whiteside "made a major case for playing time during the offseason program. He bullied defensive backs, at times, with his leaping ability. He is a clear size-strength mismatch in practice."

Of course, he still needs to show that in pads when training camp ramps up, but if he does, "the Eagles will need to get him on the field right away. While he has been pegged as a major red-zone weapon, his route-running ability and reliable hands may help him carve out an even bigger role behind Jeffery, Agholor and Jackson."

Fantasy Impact: 

The simple fact for fantasy is that the Eagles have too many weapons with Zach Ertz, Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, Nelson Agholor and Dallas Goedert crowding the target chart. Arcega-Whiteside will likely need injuries ahead of him to be a viable fantasy piece in most leagues this season. And if he does carve out a role, it will end up spreading the ball out even thinner for the non-Ertzs on the team. In the end, Carson Wentz will see the most benefit from this news.
