Jalen Reagor Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Patriots WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. the Broncos. Demario Douglas, DeVante Parker, Jalen Reagor, and Tyquan Thornton will be New England’s top four WRs for that one. Douglas is the only one inside the top 50 in the Week 16 WR Rankings.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (knee) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Steelers. He joins WRs Demario Douglas (concussion) and Kayshon Boutte (shoulder) on the sidelines for this one. That leaves New England with JuJu Smith-Schuster, Tyquan Thornton, Jalen Reagor, and special-teamer Matthew Slater as the only four active WRs. It remains a situation to avoid with the Patriots sporting a 12.25-point implied total.

Patriots WR Demario Douglas (concussion) missed practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Chargers. WR Kayshon Boutte (shoulder, illness) is also out. That leaves New England with WRs DeVante Parker, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Tyquan Thornton, and Jalen Reagor. You could take a shot on Parker, Smith-Schuster, or Thornton in DFS, but you shouldn’t mess with the situation in season-long fantasy leagues.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (concussion) will not travel with the team to Germany and is out for Sunday morning's game vs. the Colts. That again leaves WR Demario Douglas as the favorite to lead New England in targets this weekend. Jalen Reagor, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Tyquan Thornton will round out the WR corps.

Patriots WR Tyquan Thornton (foot) is active for today’s game vs. the Commanders. WR Kayshon Boutte is a healthy scratch, leaving Demario Douglas, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Jalen Reagor, and Thornton as New England’s top four WRs.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Commanders. We’ll see if he can get cleared for Week 10. With WR Kendrick Bourne done for the season with his torn ACL, New England is down to WRs Demario Douglas, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Jalen Reagor, Tyquan Thornton, and Kayshon Boutte. Thornton (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 9. Douglas is the favorite for targets here and a viable WR4 or flex play in PPR leagues.

Patriots WR Tyquan Thornton has been actiavted from IR, setting him up to make his 2023 debut vs. the Raiders on Sunday. It's good timing for New England, with WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster and Demario Douglas out with their concussions. But Thornton should not be in Week 6 fantasy lineups. The Patriots also elevated WR Jalen Reagor from the practice squad.

RB Dalvin Cook amassed just 17 yards on 6 carries as the Vikings got whipped by the Eagles on Monday night. Cook was matched in rushing yards by WR Jalen Reagor's lone carry and beaten by QB Kirk Cousins' 2 rushes for 20 yards. Cook added 4-19 receiving on 6 targets, on a night where Minnesota could get nothing going. RB Alexander Mattison contributed 8 yards on 2 carries and 3 catches for 6 yards on 5 targets.

The Vikings are acquiring WR Jalen Reagor from the Eagles. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Minnesota is giving a 7th-round pick in 2023 (acquired from Houston in a separate trade this week) and a conditional 4th-rounder in 2024. That part will probably be determined by Reagor's performance in at least the coming season. The former 1st-round pick busted his way out of Philadelphia. He interestingly now becomes teammates with Justin Jefferson, whom Minnesota selected just after. It's tough to see Reagor climbing higher than 4th on the Vikings' WR depth chart without injury to someone in the top 3. So don't expect fantasy relevance this season.'s Chris Franklin has Quez Watkins and Zach Pascal as the Eagles' 3rd and 4th WRs right now, behind the obvious lead duo of A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. That leaves 3rd-year WR Jalen Reagor fighting Greg Ward, Britain Covey and Deon Cain for what's expected to be the final 2 spots at the position. Reagor should certainly hold an edge at that level, but this standing doesn't bode well for his chances of finding fantasy football relevance.

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.

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.
