Eagles GM Howie Roseman commented on 3rd-year WR Jalen Reagor on Sunday. “Jalen Reagor is a Philadelphia Eagle and he's going to be here,” Roseman said. “He's worked tremendously hard to get in shape and come into this off-season program, and now he has an opportunity. We don't anticipate anything changing.” Positive words are great, but the reality is that Reagor will open the season no higher than 4th on the depth chart. The 23-year-old remains off the redraft radar.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. He’ll play on Sunday but isn’t a viable fantasy option vs. the Chargers’ top-ranked WR defense.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. We still don't have any details on his injury, but we're not expecting him to play against the Chargers this weekend. Reagor has averaged just 4 targets per game this season, so his absence won't have a big fantasy impact.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor injured his ankle in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Lions. He's officially questionable to return but was carted back to the locker room. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Reagor has been ruled out.

The Eagles released WR Travis Fulgham. It's not a major surprise if you've been paying attention to preseason usage. DeVonta Smith, Jalen Reagor and Quez Watkins will open the season as Philly's top 3 WRs.

Eagles insider Eliot Shorr-Parks calls Quez Watkins the team's best WR since DeVonta Smith went down with his knee injury a little over a week ago. Philly would surely like former 1st-rounder Jalen Reagor to join Smith in the starting lineup -- but Reagor has reportedly been inconsistent in camp. We'll see if Watkins can carry his momentum into preseason action. For now, he's still more of a "watch list guy" than a target in fantasy drafts.

Reports out of Eagles training camp have been up and down on 2nd-year QB Jalen Hurts. But ESPN's Tim McManus says the new starter has looked particularly good in 1 key area. "Hurts has been money on throwing the deep balls," McManus writes. "He has shown a knack for hitting his receivers in stride with touch, even from 40-plus yards out." According to McManus, Hurts also tied Tom Brady, Derek Carr and Deshaun Watson for most completions of 30+ yards from Week 13 on last season -- Hurts' starting stretch. The young QB has reportedly struggled more in the short and intermediate ranges. We can work with that combo in fantasy. Hurts' strong deep passing plus the speed of his top 2 WRs -- DeVonta Smith and Jalen Reagor -- only adds upside to a QB whose most attractive in fantasy for his rushing ability. Deshaun Watson rumors have knocked Hurts down some ADP boards recently, which could be a buying opportunity on a risk-reward fantasy QB.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor could use a strong training camp after a lackluster debut season, but it doesn't sound like things are going particularly well for him. The Athletic's Bo Wulf says Reagor has been "underwhelming" so far and hasn't capitalized on any extra opportunity afforded by DeVonta Smith's knee sprain. "Travis Fulgham, Quez Watkins and John Hightower have each made more splashy plays since Smith's absence, and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward have been steadier," Wulf writes. He adds that it's "hard to imagine" Reagor not claiming a starting spot come the regular season, but we'd obviously like to hear better things about the 2020 first-round pick. Reagor belongs in the later rounds of drafts -- where his ADP has been so far -- until something changes.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith is "week to week" with a knee sprain, according to ESPN's Tim McManus. Smith sustained the injury in Sunday's practice but reportedly stayed on the field. An MRI later diagnosed a sprain. We'll see exactly how long Smith remains out, but any missed time can't be good for a rookie wideout and a QB (Jalen Hurts) heading into his 1st full starting season. Smith could become a value if this knocks his ADP down the board. He presents risk around the bottom of WR3 territory for now, though, while his absence leaves target opportunity for others.

The Eagles traded up from #12 to #10 to select Alabama WR DeVonta Smith. You know the concern with Smith: He weighed in at 170 pounds at Alabama’s Pro Day and 166 at the medical recheck in Indianapolis. That puts him in a bucket that hasn’t produced many high-end fantasy assets. DeSean Jackson is the only WR 175 pounds or lighter to top 1,000 yards over the past 10 seasons. But Smith is also 6’0 with a 78.5-inch wingspan that lands him in the 72nd percentile among NFL WRs. So he’s skinny, but not small. And he puts big check marks in the production and tape boxes. Smith is coming off a Heisman-winning 2020 campaign that saw him post a silly 117-1856-23 line. Those yardage and TD totals both rank top 6 in NCAA history. Smith’s 2019 junior season was just as impressive. The raw numbers weren’t as big: 68 catches for 1,256 yards and 14 TDs. But they came alongside a pair of 2020 1st-round picks in Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs, plus a healthy Jaylen Waddle. Smith led that stacked squad in yards and TDs, ranking 2nd to Jeudy in catches. The tape shows a combination of ankle-breaking releases, silky smooth routes and uncanny ball skills. Smith wins at all levels of the field and is much better in contested situations than you’d expect from a man of his size. While the weight adds risk to his NFL projection, Smith is a guy we’re not gonna bet against. He’s simply good at football. The Eagles have now gone WR in the 1st round in 2 straight drafts after going with Jalen Reagor at #21 last year. Those guys should be the team’s top 2 WRs going forward.

The Eagles have named Shane Steichen their new OC. Steichen coached alongside new Eagles HC Nick Sirianni with the Chargers from 2014 to 2017. He took over as Chargers OC midway through the 2019 campaign and then led the squad to a 9th-place finish in total yards this past year. The 2020 Chargers were a fast-paced offense, ranking 5th in situation-neutral pace.

The Eagles are hiring Nick Sirianni as their new HC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Sirianni has 12 seasons of experience in the league, spending the past 3 as Colts OC. Indianapolis finished top 7 in points and yards with QB Andrew Luck in Sirianni's 1st year. The unit took a step back after Luck's surprise retirement in 2019 but bounced back to rank 9th in points and 10th in yards this past season. It's worth noting, though, that it was HC Frank Reich calling the plays for the Colts. So the 39-year-old Sirianni heads to Philly as a bit of an unknown.

The Eagles have fired HC Doug Pederson. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the move was made as a result of both on-field performance and disagreements between Pederson and management on coaching staff changes for 2021 and beyond. "Pederson was sick of people telling him what to do," Rapoport adds. Pederson is just 3 seasons removed from bringing a Super Bowl to Philadelphia, but his 2020 Eagles were 1 of the most disappointing teams in the league. We'll see who Philly hires as its new HC and, more importantly, how they decide to move forward at QB.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor sustained a concussion in the 1st half of Sunday night's game against Washington. It ends a disappointing and injury-riddled rookie campaign that saw Reagor finish with 31 catches, 396 yards and 1 TD in 11 games. He'll have every opportunity to capture a big role in the passing game in 2021.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. Washington. He popped for a long TD in last week’s win over the Cowboys but is hurt again. Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward, Alshon Jeffery and Travis Fulgham will be Philly’s top 4 WRs in the finale.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor (ankle) practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s good to go for Sunday’s game vs. the Cowboys. The rookie has seen 12 targets from QB Jalen Hurts over the past 2 weeks and has some WR4 appeal in this plus matchup.
