Arcega-Whiteside "fine," Agholor "up in the air" | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Tuesday that WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (hamstring) is "fine" but that WR Nelson Agholor (knee) remains "up in the air" for Week 15. With WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) expected to miss the rest of the season, Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward are currently Philly's only healthy WRs. We'll see if Agholor is able to make it back for Sunday's game against the Redskins, but look for TEs Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert to play big roles in that one regardless.

The Eagles added Stanford WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside with the 57th pick of the draft. Arcega-Whiteside turned in an impressive career for the Cardinal. He led the team with 5 receiving scores and finished 2nd with 379 receiving yards as a sophomore. Then he posted a 48-781-9 line as a junior, leading Stanford in all 3 categories. He boosted his numbers across the board this past season, racking up 63 catches for 1,059 yards and 14 scores. His market shares — 25.6% of the catches, 33.1% of the yards and a whopping 56.0% of the TDs — rank 20th, 15th and 2nd among the 48 WRs who were invited to the Combine. He ranked 12th among all draft-eligible WRs in yards per route run (3.03), according to Pro Football Focus. An all-state basketball player in high school, Arcega-Whiteside plays WR like he’s rebounding, displaying some of the best contested-catch ability in this draft class. He’s also quicker in his routes than you might expect from a 6’2, 225-pounder. He didn’t work out at the Combine but clocked a 4.49-second 40 time at his Pro Day. Arcega-Whiteside joins a currently crowded Eagles WR corps with Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor. But Agholor has been the subject of trade rumors and D-Jax is 32. We like this landing spot from a dynasty perspective.
