Jeffery finished as the WR19 last season playing through a shoulder injury for much of the second half of the year. The return of Carson Wentz and a contract extension solidifies Jeffery's role in this offense as a WR2 candidate again in 2018.
Jeffery reportedly could start the season on the PUP list, which would keep him out for six weeks. That should absolutely be a red flag at his ADP, in addition to some potential negative touchdown regression. Jeffery has failed to reach 1,000 yards in three consecutive seasons and now sits in an offense that prefers to spread the ball around. Jeffery will never get elite targets in Philadelphia. If the offense regresses, Jeffery will regress with it.
2018 Bottom Line
Jeffery's recovery makes his fifth-round ADP concerning. His recovery should be monitored closely for those with later drafts. For those in earlier drafts, there are plenty of other safer WRs with no Week 1 status concerns who have the same upside as Jeffery.
