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.

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.

Eagles WRs coach Mike Groh belives Alshon Jeffery is "behind" mentally after missing time early in camp.

Groh came to this conclusion after Jeffery ran a bad route in Thursday's preseason game. The play was one the Eagles have run two different ways in practice and Jeffery seemed to be confused by it. "Anytime you miss the amount of time that he did, he's a little bit behind," said Groh. "Fortunately, we have time for him to catch up." Jeffery obviously isn't grasping the team's playbook as quickly as Groh had hoped, but he still has three weeks to cram before Week 1. At least Jeffery's shoulder, which had been bothering him at the start of camp, is no longer an issue.
Aug 20 - 9:06 AM

Alshon Jeffery caught 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards in the Eagles' second preseason game.

This was Jeffery's first time playing in a preseason game with the Eagles. His first two targets and only incompletions were bad overthrows by Wentz. Being targeted on nearly half of Wentz's pass attempts is a great sign for a player who has previously thrived off volume.
Aug 17 - 8:31 PM

Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) has resumed practicing at Eagles camp.

He missed four days with a shoulder strain. Jeffery has battled shoulder problems before in addition to frequent soft-tissue injuries, but he should be considered healthy going forward. We prefer Jeffery's value in the fourth round of 12-team fantasy drafts, although he frequently goes in the third.
Aug 6 - 1:38 PM

Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) missed his third practice in a row on Thursday.

Jeffery suffered the injury during Saturday's practice and has not participated since. Neither the receiver nor coach Doug Pederson seems concerned about the issue, and ESPN's Tim McManus reports he could get back on the field Friday. Still, it is an inauspicious start for a receiver who has dealt with myriad injuries the last two years.
Aug 3 - 8:42 AM

Alshon Jeffery is working with Carson Wentz in North Dakota.

Jeffery asked for bison burger recommendations in Fargo on Twitter over the weekend, and Jeff Kerr of 247Sports reports he is being joined in North Dakota by Jordan Matthews, Torrey Smith, Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor, Trey Burton, Bryce Treggs, and Shelton Gibson. These meetups happen for most teams, but it could prove important for the Eagles with two new primary options in the passing game. Jeffery is easily the most important of those additions, and he should return WR2 value as long as he stays healthy.
Jul 10 - 8:53 AM

Eagles WRs coach Mike Groh said Alshon Jeffery had his best offseason since 2013.

Groh worked with Jeffery for three seasons in Chicago including his 2013 breakout. "Pleased with where he is physically, mentally I think he is in a good place," Groh said. "Learning a new system and working on the chemistry with Carson [Wentz] and everything like that, but it's been a good spring for him." His ability to stay on the field will always be the question, but Jeffery should return to the 1,000-yard ranks if he stays healthy. He is a solid WR2.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson listed Alshon Jeffery among the players who stood out during OTAs.

The Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski agrees, writing Jeffery has made the difficult catches look "easy." Limited to 21 games both because of injury and suspension the last two years, Jeffery's ability to stay on the field will always be a concern, but his talent on it has never been in question. If healthy, he should provide the true No. 1 option Carson Wentz was desperate for last season.
