Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is questionable for Week 11 against the Cowboys.
Coach Doug Pederson said the injury has been "lingering for a while," but he expects Jeffery to play Sunday night. Even at less than 100 percent, Jeffery has had back-to-back solid games, totaling eight catches for 148 yards and three scores ahead of last week's bye. He'll be a WR2/3 this week. Nov 17 - 10:40 AM

Alshon Jeffery (ankle) says he'll play through his ankle issue against the Cowboys.

"I'll play definitely," Jeffery said after popping up on Thursday's injury report. He said he's been battling the issue for "a while." At least right now, Jeffery should be taken at his word. Rounding into form before the Eagles' Week 10 bye, Jeffery has three touchdowns over his past two games. Headed into a plus matchup with the Cowboys, Jeffery is a high-end WR2 for Week 11.
Nov 16 - 3:54 PM

Alshon Jeffery was added to the Eagles' injury report with an ankle issue on Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Jeffery must have tweaked his ankle in Thursday's session. There's been no word on the issue's severity. For now, we'll assume it's minor, and that Jeffery will be out there as a WR2 against the Cowboys. Jeffery's Friday status should tell the Week 11 story.
Nov 16 - 3:05 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 6-of-11 targets for 84 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' Week 9 win over the Broncos.

Carson Wentz showed no fear targeting Aqib Talib, whom Jeffery beat for his first score of the game from 32 yards out. Although Jeffery has been a bit up and down in his first year with the Eagles, he has now scored a touchdown and/or cleared 70 yards in five of his last seven games. Jeffery will remain an every-week WR2 when Philadelphia comes out of its Week 10 bye.
Nov 5 - 5:14 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught just 2-of-8 targets for 62 yards and one touchdown in the Eagles' 33-10, Week 8 win over the 49ers.

Jeffery wasn't very efficient, but he made his catches count. He'd been extremely quiet most of the day before going up over the top of the cornerback and reeling in a 53-yard touchdown to put the Eagles up 27-7 late in the third quarter. Jeffery also snagged a two-point conversion earlier in the game. He's been getting targets this season, but Jeffery's catch rate is extremely low. His end stat line Sunday was a bit disappointing all things considered and will have a tough matchup at home against the Broncos in Week 9. Jeffery will be a WR3 in that spot.
Oct 29 - 4:25 PM

Alshon Jeffery (groin) is listed on the Week 8 injury report, but is practicing in full.

It's a new injury, but shouldn't keep him out of Sunday's game. Jeffery is trending down with 133 yards (44 YPG) and no touchdowns over the last three weeks.
Oct 25 - 6:50 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught just 2-of-6 targets for 37 yards in the Eagles' Week 7 win over the Redskins.

Even with stud CB Josh Norman out of the lineup, Jeffery was unable to get anything going against the Redskins. He's yet to have a 100-yard game with his new team and continues to be out-produced by both Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor in the Eagles' pass game. Jeffery gets a plum draw against the 49ers in Philadelphia in Week 8, but he's still just a borderline WR2/3.
Oct 24 - 12:30 AM

Alshon Jeffery caught 4-of-10 targets for 71 yards in the Eagles' Week 6 win over the Panthers.

The game was Jeffery's Eagles tenure in a nutshell, as he was inefficient and botched a few chances at big plays. One of Jeffery's missed connections was a drop on a deep sideline ball. Jeffery just isn't clicking with Carson Wentz yet, though a brutal opening slate of cornerbacks has surely played a part. The Eagles get the Redskins for Week 7. It's unclear if Josh Norman (ribs) will be ready.
Oct 13 - 12:19 AM

Alshon Jeffery logged three catches for 31 yards on four targets Sunday in the Eagles’ Week 5 win over the Cardinals.

Jeffery has had an impossible early schedule with matchups against Casey Hayward, Janoris Jenkins, Marcus Peters and Josh Norman and got another tough draw Sunday versus All-Pro Patrick Peterson. Game script was no friend to Jeffery this week as the Eagles got way ahead and essentially stopped throwing in the second half. It’s been slim pickings for Jeffery this year, but perhaps he’ll bounce back Thursday at Carolina.
Oct 8 - 6:02 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 3-of-6 targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 4 win over the Chargers.

The yardage total was Jeffery's lowest as an Eagle, though the score was his second in four games. With 25 percent of the season in the books, the free agent addition is on pace for 68/860/8. If nothing else, the yardage projection should increase. Jeffery figures to see a heavy dose of Patrick Peterson in Week 5 against the Cardinals.
Oct 1 - 7:58 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 4-of-8 targets for 56 yards in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Giants.

He was not shadowed by Janoris Jenkins. The big missed opportunity for Jeffery was a deep route where he had two steps on the Giants' secondary for a would-be long score, but Carson Wentz overthrew him. The Eagles have been aggressive in the vertical passing game, but Wentz simply isn't connecting, and it is hurting Jeffery's fantasy box scores. He will be a boom-bust WR2 in Week 4 against Casey Hayward's Chargers.
Sep 24 - 5:33 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 7-of-13 targets for 92 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Chiefs.

Jeffery benefitted from the Eagles' pass-heavy gamescript. He led the team in targets, and scored on a back-shoulder fade from 16 yards out. Jeffery was held in check by Josh Norman last week, but wasn't shadowed with Marcus Peters. He'll have another tough matchup against the Giants in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 5:30 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 3-of-7 targets for 38 yards in the Eagles' Week 1 win over the Redskins.

He caught a two-point conversion. Jeffery tangled with Josh Norman much of the day, but he got some one-on-ones with other secondary members. He was really close to making a couple leaping grabs but couldn't haul them in. Jeffery will do battle with the Chiefs' Marcus Peters at times next week, but Peters doesn't shadow. Treat Jeffery as a WR2 in a potential shootout.
Sep 10 - 5:32 PM

Coach Doug Pederson said the Eagles are expecting Redskins CB Josh Norman to shadow Alshon Jeffery in Week 1.

We would assume the same. New Redskins DC Greg Manusky was the defensive boss in Indianapolis two years ago when CB Vontae Davis would shadow opposing No. 1 receivers. Norman presents a stiff challenge for Jeffery, but by no means should season-long fantasy owners consider not starting him. Daily leagues is a different story. Zach Ertz is probably the top play for Philly.
Sep 6 - 12:01 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 2-of-2 targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' third preseason game.

Jeffery’s first target gained 20 yards on Philly’s third offensive drive, beating Dolphins top CB Byron Maxwell. He scored a 15-yard touchdown on a slant route late in the first quarter, zagging through a confused Miami secondary. In preseason action, the Eagles have forced fed Alshon on shallow crosses and slants. Albeit with risk based on his history of soft-tissue injuries, Jeffery offers legitimate WR1 upside if he can stay hot with Carson Wentz.
