Alshon Jeffery (illness, shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fantasy Impact:

Even though Jeffery is cleared for contact, he has missed the last two days of practice with an illness. While this is obviously not ideal, the general feeling is Jeffery will play this weekend. If he does, there is more risk than usual involved in starting him, as we don't know if he will play a full complement of snaps. There is also the risk of rust and after-effects from his illness. Consider him a WR3/4 with upside, but a low floor.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery cleared for contact

According to coach Doug Pederson, Alshon Jeffery has been cleared for contact. He did not commit to him playing against Tennessee, but he's got the medical green light.

Fantasy Impact:

Finally! When Alshon is healthy and playing without limitations, he is a fantasy WR2 with weekly upside. It remains to be seen if he is limited in any way, so monitor practice reports throughout the week. His return likely sends Dallas Goedert back to the touchdown dependant boom-or-bust role Trey Burton filled last year and limits Nelson Agholor's target share. At the same time, Jeffery's presence should open up the field for Agholor, allowing him more room to operate as he did in 2017. This is good news for the entirety of Philly's fantasy options, save for Goedert.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery 'getting closer'

Are the Eagles finally getting back their No. 1 receiver?

Maybe.

Alshon Jeffery has yet to be cleared for contact, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said on Monday at NovaCare Complex, and so his status for Week 4 against the Tennessee Titans remains in question.

Pederson said Monday that Jeffery is "getting close" to coming back into the lineup.

Fantasy Impact:

As expected, Jeffery didn't play against the Colts in Week 3, though he was upgraded from being declared "out" the last two weeks to "questionable" on the final injury report two days before the game. Reports before the game indicated he might return in Week 4.
