Jalen Reagor Fantasy Football News 2020

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor has a UCL tear in his thumb and will miss "multiple weeks," according to insider John Clark. Reagor, of course, missed a chunk of August with a shoulder injury but was able to play in the first 2 games. We'll see exactly how long this latest injury costs him, but it's tough to imagine him being a bankable fantasy option during the 1st half of the season. He's droppable in shallower fantasy leagues. Reagor's absence keeps DeSean Jackson locked in as Philly's #1 WR and ensures that TEs Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert will continue to play big roles in the passing game.

Update: Clark adds that the Eagles "hope" to get Reagor back by Week 10.

Washington CB Kendall Fuller (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles. That leaves an already iffy secondary without a starter against a dangerous crew of pass-catchers that includes WRs DeSean Jackson and Jalen Reagor. The rookie could particularly benefit if he sees as much time in the slot as anticipated. Fuller has worked primarily as a slot corner.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor (shoulder) isn't listed on the final Week 1 injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. It was a speedy recovery from the rookie, who suffered what was believed to be a 4-week injury less than 2 weeks ago. Reagor seemed to be in line for a big role prior to that injury, but it's unclear how the missed time will impact that. We'd try not to use him in Week 1 fantasy lineups -- although there's certainly upside here.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. So it looks like he's on track to play against Washington this weekend. The rookie was having a big training camp before the shoulder injury, but it's unclear what the missed time means for his Week 1 role. Consider him a risk/reward fantasy play in the opener.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor put in a limited practice Wednesday. That's encouraging news, given that the rookie is dealing with a shoulder injury expected to cost him at least 1 game. We'll see if he's in play to be active for the opener, but we'd be happy to get the 1st-round pick back by Week 2.

NBC Philly's John Clark hears that Eagles WR Jalen Reagor is doing "very well" in his shoulder rehab. "I’m hearing it’s looking good for second game," Clark adds. That'd put Reagor about a week ahead of the 4-week timeline that was originally reported. We'll continue to keep an eye on his progress. Reagor is a nice stash in the double-digit rounds of remaining fantasy drafts.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor is expected to miss about 4 weeks with his injured left shoulder, according to Geoff Mosher of InsidetheBirds.com. "Early word" indicates a "very slight tear" in his labrum, though Reagor will be getting a 2nd opinion. He is, at least, expected to avoid surgery. We'll watch for further updates. This initial timeline could cost the rookie the first 2-3 games of the season and make it tougher to start as quickly as Reagor's buzzy camp was pointing to.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor suffered an arm injury in Sunday's practice. Reporters weren't sure whether it was a wrist or shoulder injury. Reagor was looked at by trainers on the field before heading inside. We'll update his status as soon as we learn more.

Update: Ian Rapaport and Adam Schefter both report that it’s a shoulder injury the team doesn’t believe to be serious, but that Reagor is getting an MRI to confirm that.

The Athletic's Zach Berman believes Eagles WR Jalen Reagor will be a "major part of the offense" this season. The rookie has reportedly been lining up at multiple spots and has already emerged as 1 of QB Carson Wentz's top targets. This is just the latest in a long line of buzzy reports on Reagor's camp performance. He's climbing our WR rankings and is a nice target at his 10th-round ADP.

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.
