Alshon Jeffery Fantasy Football News 2020

The Eagles have elected to put WR Alshon Jeffery on the active roster, rather than having him open the season on the physically unable to perform list. Jeffery was eligible after spending all of training camp on the PUP following December foot surgery. GM Howie Roseman told Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, though, that the team believes Jeffery will be ready before Week 7 and that "being on PUP would restrict him until then." Jeffery is stashable late in fantasy drafts, but he'd be a dead spot on your roster until that foot is ready.

Adam Caplan of Inside the Birds reports that Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery "has a real shot to return in September and is unlikely to remain on PUP to start the season." Jeffery is nearing 9 months since December surgery for a Lisfranc injury. We'll continue to keep an eye on his return. We'll also see whether Jeffery can get back before rookie WR Jalen Reagor returns from his shoulder injury.

The Eagles have placed WR Alshon Jeffery (Lisfranc) on the active/PUP list. No surprise here. Jeffery is still rehabbing from December Lisfranc surgery, and signs all offseason have pointed to him missing the start of the season. He's now eligible to be placed on the reserve/PUP list later this summer, which would knock him out for at least the first 6 games.

The Eagles selected TCU WR Jalen Reagor with the 21st overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. Reagor might be the biggest risk/reward prospect in this year’s WR class. The good: He led the Horned Frogs in yards (576) and TDs (8) as a true freshman, posted a big 72-1,061-9 line as a sophomore and earned a 93rd percentile SPARQ score at 5’11, 206 pounds at the Combine. Reagor’s highlights — explosive speed, a big catch radius and sublime hands — are exciting. “Holy sh*t, he’s exciting,” an anonymous scout told The Athletic’s Bob McGinn. “His speed and run after … we’re looking for explosive playmakers … His skill set is outstanding.” But Reagor’s 2019 was ugly: 43 catches, 611 yards and 5 TDs. TCU’s passing game struggled under freshman QB Max Duggan, but Reagor still tallied disappointing market shares and ranked dead last among 30 of this year’s top WR prospects in yards per route run. This is a great landing spot both short and long term with HC Doug Pederson and QB Carson Wentz. We’ll see if Philly hangs on to WR Alshon Jeffery, but Reagor has a good shot to at least win a top 3 role this season alongside DeSean Jackson.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery underwent surgery to repair his Lisfranc injury on Saturday, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. "The hope is he’ll be ready to go by the start of the 2020 season," Garafolo adds. Lisfrancs can be tough to recover from -- especially for a soon-to-be 30-year-old receiver with a long injury history. Jeffery is due $11.5 million fully guaranteed in 2020, so he'll be back with Philly.

The Eagles have placed WR Alshon Jeffery on IR, officially ending his 2019 campaign. Jeffery suffered a Lisfranc injury in Monday night's game against the Giants, according to NBC Philadelphia's John Clark. The Eagles promoted WR Robert Davis from the practice squad to take Jeffery's place on the roster. Davis joins J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward as the team's healthy WRs.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery's injury is "significant" and might cost him the rest of the season, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. We're still waiting for an official diagnosis on Jeffery, but it looked like a serious injury from the moment it happened. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him the rest of the way.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery told the media he "felt something pop" in his foot during the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Giants. The team is calling it a foot injury, which is better than an Achilles. But this obviously sounds like a serious issue. Jeffery is scheduled for an MRI on Tuesday. Philly is razor-thin at WR, with DeSean Jackson on IR, Nelson Agholor dealing with a knee injury and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside appearing to hurt his hamstring late in the Giants game.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery left Monday night's game against the Giants in the 1st half after hurting his right foot. He's questionable to return.

Update: Jeffery has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Eagles WRs Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) will both return for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Jeffery is a WR3 with upside in the plus matchup. Agholor is tough to get behind as a fantasy option considering he's topped 50 yards just once all season.

Eagles WRs Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) will be full participants in Wednesday's practice, HC Doug Pederson said. That puts both guys on track to return for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. Jeffery will be a WR3 with some upside in that plus matchup. Agholor remains just a fantasy flier.

Eagles WRs Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) are inactive for today’s game against the Seahawks. That leaves Jordan Matthews, Mack Hollins, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward as Philly’s healthy WRs. We wouldn’t trust any of them in fantasy lineups. TE Zach Ertz, TE Dallas Goedert and RB Miles Sanders could be the team’s top 3 target-getters today.

Here's the latest from ESPN's Adam Schefter on the Eagles' top W Alshon Jeffery: "It's now iffy if the Eagles will have Alshon Jeffery against the Seahawks." Previous reports had Jeffery expected to play. Even if he's active, Jeffery clearly carries risk with his sprained ankle. If he's out, Jordan Matthews would be the lead WR for a team expected to miss WR Nelson Agholor. The whole situation obviously helps the outlook for TE Dallas Goedert and raises the target ceiling for Eagles RBs.

The Eagles expect to have WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle) in the lineup for today's game against the Seahawks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He put in limited practices all week after missing Week 11. WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is not expected to play. He missed the entire week of practice. Agholor's absence leaves targets available for players such as WR Jordan Matthews and TE Dallas Goedert.
