The Philadelphia Eagles are trading former first-round receiver Jalen Reagor to the Minnesota Vikings for a 2023 seventh-round pick and a 2024 conditional fourth-round selection, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday, per sources.
Reagor was taken with the No. 21 overall pick in the 2020 draft.
Reagor needed a fresh start as he never was able to take off in Philly as a first round pick. Ironically, the Eagles passed on Jefferson that year and drafted Reagor instead, and now the two are teammates. Reagor could battle for a WR3 or WR4 spot with the Vikings but will have a way to go before being fantasy relevant.
MIN WR Adam Thielen - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Green Bay Packers
Adam Thielen is now competing for targets with an All-Pro teammate in Justin Jefferson, an effective receiving tight end in T.J. Hockenson, and even a solid third receiver in K.J. Osborn. As a result, Thielen is seeing a decline in target share and only managed a 1-6-0 line on five targets last week against the Giants. Thielen's fantasy viability is largely dependent on touchdowns at this point in his career, and that almost always means the player will struggle with a low weekly floor. Thielen gets a familiar division foe this week in the Packers and their mediocre defense, but Thielen is not seeing the requisite target share to use as a starting option in a fantasy championship matchup.
