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.
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.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice. It was just a walk-through, but the listing suggests that Jeffery will be ready for his usual role against the Packers on Thursday night. It's a tough matchup, but Jeffery is back in the WR3 discussion.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Tuesday that he expects WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) to play against the Packers on Thursday night. We'll see how much Jeffery does in practice over the next 2 days, but we'd still consider him a high-risk, moderate-reward fantasy play vs. a tough pass defense. Jeffery's return dings WR Nelson Agholor's Week 4 projection.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Monday that he's "hopeful" WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) will be ready for Thursday night's game against the Packers. Despite being listed as questionable for Week 3, Jeffery didn't seem particularly close to playing vs. the Lions. We'll track his status over the next few days, but fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on having Jeffery in Week 4 lineups.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) is inactive for today’s game against the Lions. We’ll see if he’s able to return for Thursday night’s game against the Packers. With WR DeSean Jackson (groin) also out, Philly is down to Nelson Agholor, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Mack Hollins. Agholor is the best target bet and a solid Week 3 fantasy play. Arcega-Whiteside is the most exciting talent of the trio and is worth considering in DFS tournament lineups.
