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.
PHI WR Jalen Reagor - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 vs. Seattle
Jalen Reagor is finally healthy and the numbers are starting to rise for the rookie. He has averaged six targets over the past two games and has 99 receiving yards. The Eagles were hoping that Reagor could be a force this season, but the injuries have slowed him down.
Reagor will face the Seahawks who are 30th in aFPA to wide receivers. The game has the potential to be a shootout if QB Carson Wentz can get his act together.
The Eagles passing game has struggled in 2020 and the receiver situation is been volatile. Even with a great matchup, Reagor should remain on the bench for Week 12. Too many possibilities for Philly receivers and you don't know which one will be the main target week-to-week.
