Eagles insider Geoff Mosher believes the team's slot job is Nelson Agholor's "to lose." The former 1st-rounder reportedly had an impressive spring filling in for WR Jordan Matthews (knee) with the 1st-team offense. "He showed reliable hands, excellent route-running and, most importantly, a newfound confidence that had been lacking in his rookie and sophomore seasons," Mosher writes. It's unclear if Agholor claiming the slot job would kick Matthews outside or out of the starting lineup altogether. (Alshon Jeffery is locked in, and the Eagles also added Torrey Smith this offseason.) We're also not yet completely buying Agholor's emergence based on pad-less spring practices. It'll certainly be a situation to watch over the next few weeks, though. Jeffery is the only reasonably safe pick in Philly's WR corps right now.

ESPN's Tim McManus writes that Eagles WR Nelson Agholor "was easily one of the standouts of the spring." QB Carson Wentz came away from OTAs and minicamp impressed as well. "He's always been an explosive guy, but boy, it sure seems like he might have gotten quicker and more explosive this offseason," said quarterback Carson Wentz. "He's getting open, making plays. It's good to see." Agholor reportedly worked in the slot quite a bit with Jordan Matthews out nursing knee tendinitis. Once Matthews returns, Agholor's likely looking at no better than the #4 WR spot in an Eagles pass offense with plenty to prove. He'll have a tough time returning any fantasy value in 2017. But a potential turnaround keeps the 24-year-old in the mix as a stash for dynasty owners -- especially with Matthews and Alshon Jeffery in contract years.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor is a healthy scratch for tonight's game against the Packers. Last year's 1st-round pick has struggled mightily this season -- so much so that he's seen a sports psychologist. He's obviously well off the redraft radar, and his dynasty stock has taken a significant hit. Rookie WR Bryce Treggs was announced as Philly's starter alongside Jordan Matthews for tonight. Dorial Green-Beckham and rookie Paul Turner will also see action, but Matthews is the only viable fantasy option.

Eagles insider Jeff McLane writes that the "greatest indictment" of the team's trade for WR Dorial Green-Beckham was against WR Nelson Agholor. The 2015 1st-rounder has failed to take a noticeable step forward in his 2nd offseason, struggling to "catch balls, create separation, and run consistent routes." McLane also points out that Agholor was a Chip Kelly draft pick, so he might not have a long leash with the current regime. Green-Beckham is certainly a threat to Agholor's starting job. We're not excited to draft either guy in fantasy right now.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor "hasn't come anywhere close" to stepping up and taking control of the #2 WR job so far this offseason, according to insider Eliot Shorr-Parks. "The issues with drops that plagued him last year continued into OTAs," Shorr-Parks says. That's on top of the strip club incident that got Agholor accused of sexual assault. Shorr-Parks predicts that Reuben Randle will win the team's #2 WR job. We'll track the battle through training camp, although neither Agholor nor Randle is a good bet for reliable fantasy value.
