While the timetable remains TBD, my understanding is Eagles WR DeSean Jackson isn't expected to play Sunday against the #Lions because of his groin injury and a quick turnaround to Thursday night game vs. Packers will make that tough, too. Less speed on the field.
Word around Philly was Jackson had a better chance to play this week than Jeffery, so this isn't a good sign for the Eagles offense for the next two weeks. Agholor will likely benefit the most and will also try to take over as the team's deep threat with Jackson out. Hollins and Arecega-Whiteside will see more time if Jeffery is out, too. The Birds could go with more two TE sets, but Dallas Goedert's status is also in question after a Week 2 injury.
PHI WR Nelson Agholor - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 at Dallas
Nelson Agholor appeared back on the passing game radar this past week with four catches for 42 yards. He had only one reception in the previous two games before last Sunday. He has an opportunity with DeSean Jackson still on the shelf, but hasn't done much with it.
Agholor faces a Cowboys defense that is 18th in aFPA to wide receivers. Based on what he has been doing in recent weeks, we don't expect him to have any kind of crazy stats. So, keep him on the bench for Week 7 against Dallas. The numbers just haven't been there.
