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) put in a full week of practice and will make his 2020 debut against the Giants on Sunday. HC Doug Pederson suggested on Friday that Jeffery will be limited in his 1st action since last December. He’s not a viable Week 10 fantasy play.
The Eagles expect WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) to be a full participant in practice after the bye. Jeffery, of course, has not played since suffering a Lisfranc injury last December but added the calf injury in the lead-up to Week 7. We'll see about his return to game action, and then how big a role he'll play. Jeffery won't be usable in fantasy lineups in most cases at least until we see a game from him. His role, however, could impact playing time for fantasy revelation Travis Fulgham.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is out for Thursday night's game against the Giants. He's now listed on the injury report with a calf, in addition to the foot. Jeffery's absence ensures that Travis Fulgham will remain Philly's starting 'X' receiver this week.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (Lisfranc) returned to practice on Thursday. It's his 1st official workout since last December's foot injury. Jeffery still figures to be at least a couple of weeks away from his 2020 debut, but he's trending in the right direction. His status has taken on increased importance with WR Jalen Reagor (thumb) out indefinitely.
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.
