Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is out for Sunday night’s game against the Cowboys. There was early-week hope that D-Jax would be back for this one, but he didn’t end up practicing at all. Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollins will continue to serve as Philly’s top 3 WRs.
Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (groin) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jets. He doesn’t seem particularly close to returning, but we’ll track his status next week. Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollins will serve as Philly’s top 3 WRs vs. New York.
Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (groin) did not practice and is still in the rehab process, HC Doug Pederson said. It doesn't sound like he'll play against the Jets this weekend. That'll again leave Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollins as Philly's top 3 WRs.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) isn't listed on the final Week 4 injury report after full workouts on Tuesday and Wednesday. His matchup with a talented Packers secondary on Thursday night is a bigger concern than the calf injury. We have Jeffery ranked as a low-end WR3 this week. WR DeSean Jackson (groin) has been ruled out, so it figures to be Mack Hollins joining Jeffery on the outside with Nelson Agholor in the slot.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) a "long shot" to play against the Lions today. "Though the team may give him the chance to work out and fight to see the field," Rapoport adds. Even if Jeffery ends up giving it a go, he'd be an extremely risky fantasy play. He should be on Week 3 benches. With DeSean Jackson out, Philly is down to Nelson Agholor, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Mack Hollins atop the fantasy depth chart. Agholor is the best fantasy bet, while Arcega-Whiteside is an intriguing DFS tournament flier.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's walkthrough. So, too, were WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) and TE Dallas Goedert (calf). Philly figures to be down to WRs Nelson Agholor, J.J. Arcega Whiteside and Mack Hollins for this weekend's game against the Lions.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is dealing with a calf strain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "It’s not major, but with two games in 10 days, the timing is bad," Rapoport adds. "His status for those is in some doubt." It sounds like Jeffery is unlikely to play against the Lions this weekend and could also miss the following Thursday night's game against the Packers. His absence would mean more snaps for WRs J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Mack Hollins.
After the Eagles drafted WR Mack Hollins in Round 4, some posited that they grabbed him primarily for the special teams value. GM Howie Roseman said that wasn't the motivation, however, according to Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. While calling that a plus, Roseman reportedly said they drafted the 6'4 wideout because he brings "starter potential." Hollins will be interesting to watch in a young offense and will carry upside late in dynasty rookie drafts.
The Eagles added North Carolina WR Mack Hollins in the 4th round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He totaled 65 catches, 1,358 yards and 16 scores across 2014 and 2015 before missing time this past year with a collarbone injury that required surgery. Hollins is a big 6'4, 221-pounder and is considered 1 of the better blockers and special teamers in this year's WR class. There's some long-term upside here, but Hollins figures to be buried in Philadelphia's deep WR group this season.
