Agholor was a bigger factor in the Eagles offense before the team acquired Golden Tate, who essentially played his position in the offense. Agholor still set a career high in receptions with 64 catches. He had at least three receptions 12 of 16 games, including his first nine games. Agholor has two straight seasons with 60-plus receptions and 700-plus yards. He fits the role well as the No. 3 or slot receiver for the Eagles, a role he will try to win again this year. Agholor has good hands and does well in making plays after the catch. He does a good job of getting open, finding the soft spot in coverages. He does lack size for the position, though, and struggles with the speed of the NFL game at times. Fantasy Outlook: Agholor probably peaked last year and was 34th in fantasy receiver scoring. His ceiling is limited for fantasy teams. He is worth a look as a No. 4 receiver. He can get around 60 receptions for 700 yards with four or five scores.
In one of the more puzzling moves of the Chip Kelly era, and there were many, The Eagles selected Nelson Agholor as the 20th pick of the first round of the 2015 draft. His time with the Eagles has been, shall we say uneven. Good games have been followed by bad. Including an entire 2016 season in which he had the drops due to issues getting his head right.With his rookie contract coming to an end, the likelihood of him being re-signed by Philadelphia is far from good. He will likely be fighting this season for a new contract on a new team. This could mean good things are in store if he plays hard in his audition. But with his occasionally fragile mental state, it could also mean more mistakes as he tries too hard. After the departure of Golden Tate, Agholor will move back to the slot position. A spot in which he had his most productive season at in 2017 when he had 62 receptions for 768 yards and eight touchdowns on 95 targets. With new weapons in Miles Sanders, Dallas Goedert and JJ Arcega-Whiteside in the mix and Zach Ertz finally taking the leap to elite tight end status, the targets will not be as high for him this time around. Add to this the return of DeSean Jackson and even more targets are coming off the board which would have been headed to Agholor.Last season, on two more targets he had 64 receptions. Despite the slight rise in catches, the yardage went down to 736 and his touchdowns were cut in half to only four. If these numbers sound good to you, and in deep leagues or dynasty leagues they should, then you should consider drafting him in the area of round 12 of fantasy drafts. His ceiling is going to be limited by the surrounding cast in Philadelphia. However, playing the slot in a good offense should give him the chance to provide consistency.His upside is that of a low-end WR3 and his floor a WR5. In the 12th round, this is a good return on investment and at this point of drafts, he is someone worth a shot on your team. It will only take one injury to Alshon Jeffery for his value to rise. And with Jeffrey's history of injury, this is not as farfetched as Eagles fans would hope.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor came down with three passes in Week 9, gaining 21 yards. Agholor has fallen behind both tight ends and at least one running back in the passing game, leaving him fighting for scraps. Agholor hasn't shown anything to make fantasy owners feel like he should be a starting option anytime soon.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor is not a starting option for most formats in Week 9. The Eagles take on the Chicago Bears and their tough defense, and Agholor has a hard time even when he's wide open. He somehow caught four passes and only gained seven total yards in Week 8. With the Eagles developing their running game, Agholor seems more likely to break out a big gain on a jet sweep than on a play that requires an actual catch in Week 9.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor registered four catches for just seven yards in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills.
Fantasy Spin: Agholor had a promising start to the season, posting 18 grabs with 168 yards and three scores in the first three games. He has 11 catches for 93 yards and no touchdowns across the past five. As such, treat him as a WR5 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 9.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor was nearly useless in Week 8, catching four passes and somehow gaining only seven yards. He added two carries for seven more yards. Agholor was third on the team in targets but couldn't do anything with the ball in his hands, although him catching all of his targets was a rare sight. He's not much of a fantasy option and won't be consistent enough to be worth a starting spot in most leagues.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor is not a good idea in fantasy starting lineups for Week 8. The Eagles will be on the road going up against the Buffalo Bills and their stingy defense. Agholor has made just seven catches since Week 3, and appeared to completely give up on a very catchable pass last week. He's got NFL speed, but severely lacks NFL hands and is only an average route runner. Even if DeSean Jackson (abdomen) misses another game, Agholor is just a zero-floor WR5 dart throw.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor had another disappointing week in Week 7, catching just two passes and gaining 24 scoreless yards. Agholor was targeted four times in a game where almost the entire Philly offense struggled to get anything done. With DeSean Jackson (abdomen) possibly back next week to take on a stout Buffalo defense, Agholor will be nothing more than a last-ditch effort in most formats.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor is not a great starting option for Week 7. The Eagles hit the road to take on the Dallas Cowboys and their strong pass defense on Sunday Night Football. Agholor managed to catch four of his seven targets in Week 6, but caught only one pass in Weeks 4 and 5. He simply does not possess NFL-level hands and will always battle with drops and fumbles. The Eagles passing game will likely run through Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz, leaving Agholor far behind.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor caught four passes in Week 6, gaining 42 scoreless yards. He had one catch in his last two games combined, so while it was nice to see him come down with the four catches, he didn't really do much to inspire confidence in his play going forward. He simply does not have NFL-caliber hands. Agholor will be a desperation-only play going forward, especially when DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is back on the field.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor caught four passes for 42 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He was targeted seven times during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Agholor had one 100-yard game earlier this season but has been held to 50 yards or less in the other five games. Fantasy players should be able to find better options and can avoid Agholor next week.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor cannot be relied on as a fantasy option in Week 6. Agholor has just one catch total in his past two games despite catching 16 in the two before that. He is way too volatile with drops, fumbles, and overall inconsistency to trust in a fantasy lineup. Combine all that with a difficult matchup against the Minnesota Vikings Defense, and Agholor is better left on the bench in Week 6.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor caught just one pass in Week 5, gaining 20 yards then fumbling the ball. Agholor was coming off a zero-catch game in Week 4 and didn't really do any better in Week 5. With DeSean Jackson (abdomen) expected back soon, Agholor could be sliding completely off the fantasy radar. At the very least, he absolutely cannot be trusted in a starting role until further notice.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor will hope to improve on his disastrous Week 4 performance this week. Held without a catch in Week 4, Agholor will likely get another week without DeSean Jackson (abdomen) in the starting lineup. Facing off against a soft New York Jets secondary, Agholor could see a fair number of targets. Whether or not he actually catches them is anyone's guess. Agholor is a risky play, and fantasy owners still reeling from his zero-point performance last week will gladly leave him on the bench this week. He's no more than a WR4 in most formats, with a very low floor.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor was targeted just once and did not have a reception against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 26.
Fantasy Spin: With Jeffery and Goedert back, Agholor was relegated to afterthought status on Thursday night. With DeSean Jackson likely to return in Week 5, Agholor's run as a fantasy asset may have already run its course.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor did absolutely nothing on the field of play on Thursday night. Agholor was not even targeted in the passing game after scoring a touchdown and gaining over 100 yards last week. Agholor made some ugly drops despite his big game in Week 3, likely leading many fantasy owners to start him in Week 4. The goose egg was a rough start to the fantasy week for many. Agholor's role going forward shouldn't be one of zero points, but it also won't be remotely similar to what he did in Week 3.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor should maintain an expanded role in Week 4. With both Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson out in Week 3, Agholor took on the role of Carson Wentz's number one wide receiver and gave the Eagles an all expenses paid trip on "Nelson Agholor's Wild Ride". He scored a touchdown and gained over 100 yards, but he made some embarrassing drops and fumbled too. Jeffery is expected back this week, but Jackson will still be out, leaving Agholor to likely run in the slot. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect a repeat of Week 3, but Agholor could still put up a significant performance. He's a WR3/4 with upside on Thursday Night Football.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor caught eight of his 12 targets for 50 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-24 loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 3.
Fantasy Spin: Injuries have forced Agholor into a major role in the passing attack, and if DeSean Jackson or Alshon Jeffery remain sidelined in Week 4, fantasy owners can lean on Agholor once again.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor scored two touchdowns in Week 3, catching eight passes for 50 yards. Agholor's touchdowns came on a 20-yard pass in the third quarter and a two-yard pass late in the fourth. It was a full Agholor game, as he also dropped some key passes on critical plays. Agholor's expanded role was due to the absence of Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin). With what he showed today outside of the box score, his role might not be quite as big even if the two top receivers are out again in Week 4.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor will likely be thrust into an every-down role in Week 3. With top wide receivers DeSean Jackson (groin) and Alshon Jeffery (calf) unlikely to suit up, Agholor will be wide receiver atop the depth chart. He spent the second half in Week 2 in the role, and despite some decent stats (107 yards and a touchdown), he also showed why he's so far behind Jackson and Jeffery when everyone is healthy. Agholor made some totally inexcusable drops when wide open in the second half. Still, he'll likely be peppered with targets from Carson Wentz and even if he drops half of them, he could still end up with seven or eight catches. Agholor is a solid WR3 option with touchdown upside this week.
Eagles' WR Nelson Agholor had 8 receptions for 107 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's loss in Atlanta.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor took advantage of injuries on Sunday, catching eight passes for 107 yards and a touchdown. Agholor's score came on a four-yard pass from Carson Wentz in the third quarter. With DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery both forced to leave the game due to injury, Agholor took over as the top wide receiver for the entire second half. He flashed a bit, making a couple of great catches. If either of the receivers ahead of him on the depth chart are forced to miss more time, Agholor could suddenly become a WR2/3 option for a limited time.
