Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was asked about that report on Tuesday [that WR Alshon Jeffery could start the season on the PUP list]. Pederson didn’t say if that was a possibility, but did say that the team likes where Jeffery is at this point.

“You know what, I’m not going to comment on that because we’re monitoring his progress, it’s day-to-day, we’re happy where he’s at, and we’ll continue to do that,” Pederson said, via Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice. “But I’m not sure where that came from.”

Fantasy Impact:

As we reported yesterday, Wallace and Agholor would see increased work should Jeffery start the season on the PUP list and miss the first six weeks. However, in the story, Pederson seemed to downplay that as a possibility.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Alshon Jeffery has been slow to recover from a shoulder injury. If he were to miss time at the start of the season, Agholor would be sure to benefit along with tight end Zach Ertz. Agholor finished as a top-25 WR last season powered by eight touchdowns.

Fantasy Downside

The Eagles like to spread the ball around. There were nine games last season when Agholor saw fewer than six targets. That usage makes him tough to predict weekly in redraft leagues when all the Eagles weapons are active.

2018 Bottom Line

Agholor's ninth-round ADP is very reasonable considering the status of Jeffery and the elite level of this offense last season. Agholor definitely has some sleeper appeal.
