Travis Fulgham changed the Eagles offense this year and he’s changed the Eagles’ future plans, too; it’s safe to start talking about him as a core player for 2021. Five games might be a limited sample, but Fulgham appears to be having an out-of-nowhere emergence like Victor Cruz in 2011 and Miles Austin in 2009.
All the numbers are there for Fulgham. As the story went on to say: he had six catches for 78 yards and a touchdown Sunday. He’s led the Eagles in receiving in all five games he’s played. He’s scored a touchdown in four of them. Since his promotion to the active roster in Week 4, he leads the league in receiving yards (435), ranks seventh in receptions (29) and is one of 10 players with at least four receiving touchdowns.
The hits just keep on coming. Meredith was shaping up as an excellent middle-round value but now his Week 1 (and season) status are in serious question. Kevin White and Kendall Wright will probably be the two most fantasy relevant receivers on the Bears' roster if Meredith misses time.
