Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside has seen some time in the slot during organized team activities this week. It helped that Alshon Jeffery wasn't at practice, but it's still notable nonetheless. Arcega-Whiteside should be a weapon for the Eagles in the red zone, but you shouldn't expect him to make an impact in redraft leagues while behind Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor on the depth chart unless an injury occurs.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside might not play much in his rookie season if the other receivers and tight ends on the roster stay healthy. Philly's fourth receiver in 2018 didn't play more than 29 offensive snaps in a single game. With the Eagles trying to use more two-tight end sets this season, the fourth receiver might be used even less. Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor will be ahead of Arcega-Whiteside if they stay healthy. Arcega-Whiteside will be a much better dynasty/keeper asset than single-league option in 2019.
The Philadelphia Eagles selected Stanford wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside with the No. 57 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Arcega-Whiteside loves to win jump balls due to his basketball background, and it helps that he has very strong hands. He has plenty of speed to bring to the table as well. He'll likely struggle to beat man coverage in the NFL and is more of a possession receiver, but he has upside in the long run as a touchdown-dependant wideout for the Eagles. It'll be a long shot if he carves out fantasy relevance for owners in 2019. The addition of Arcega-Whiteside could lead the Eagles to trade Nelson Agholor. Even if they don't, Agholor's role in Philly's offense should shrink in 2019.
