Schefter: Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) to miss first two games

Adam Schefter on Twitter - [Full Article]

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is expected to miss at least the first two games of the season.

Related players: Dallas Goedert, Zach Ertz, Mike Wallace, Nelson Agholor, Mack Hollins, Kamar Aiken, Shelton Gibson

Fantasy Impact:

Per Schefter, the Eagles will activate Jeffery to the 53-man roster this weekend with optimism he could be back by Week 3. It's a bit of good news considering there were reports he would remain on the PUP list and miss the first six games. Agholor and Wallace should see a lot of targets at WR. But the Birds could go to two TE sets with Ertz and their top pick Geodert. RBs Darren Sproles and Corey Clement could also be involved in the passing game. Depending on who makes the cut, Hollins, Gibson or Aiken could see WR3 snaps with Jeffery out.

Scouting Report

Week 3 vs. Indianapolis Colts

Philadelphia has an attractive 27-point implied team total this week. The Colts have allowed 12 receptions to tight ends this season. With Alshon Jeffery still on the shelf and now Mike Wallace on IR, Ertz should get a ton of targets. He's an elite TE option for Week 3.
