Jeffery missed the first three games of last season but played well once hitting the field. He was the top target in this offense and had at least three receptions all but a game. He had two 100-yard games and scored six touchdowns. If he plays a full season, Jeffery has 80 receptions for 1,038 yards and seven touchdowns. Jeffery has not been off the charts with the Eagles the last two years but played pretty well as the top receiver in that offense. He averages 61 receptions for 816 yards and eight touchdowns in two seasons with the Eagles. Jeffery will continue to play a big role in this offense. Jeffery is the complete package at receiver. His route running has really improved since entering the league, and he does a great job of hauling in nearly every-thing thrown his way. He also is a great deep threat because of his size, speed and leaping ability. Fantasy Outlook: Jeffery can improve on last year but don't expect his huge numbers of past years. He is more of a No. 2 for fantasy teams. He can get around 70 receptions for 1,000 yards and eight or so scores.
Alshon Jeffery has gone through his ups and downs, and he has every opportunity this year to have another up. Hes supposedly as healthy as hes ever been, Wentz is healthy, and there are plenty of other weapons to distract defenses in the red zone. Hes caught 15 touchdowns over the last two years in Philadelphia and could get to double-digits in a perfect world. Thats the positive way to look at things. The negative points to Jeffery playing just one full season since 2014 and posting a sub 60% catch rate with Carson Wentz at the helm. Ertz caught 116 passes in 2018, and we know Wentz loves feeding the TE. If Jeffery can become the favorite target of Wentz, the sky is the limit. Jeffery is currently being drafted as WR28 with an 8.2 ADP. I dont hate him in the eighth round, but would rather a Corey Davis or Robby Anderson with higher upside two rounds later.

The Philadelphia Eagles tried to trade wide receiver Alshon Jeffery during the 2019 season, just after the team guaranteed Jeffery's salary for the 2020 season. The Eagles attempted to deal him when his production fell off and his injuries piled up. Jeffery was also the "anonymous player" that later criticized general manager Howie Roseman and the decisions he was and wasn't making. Jeffery is now rehabbing from a serious Lisfranc injury and is a question mark for the start of training camp and the 2020 regular season, so he'll be nearly impossible to trade now. There's no rush on a decision, but the Eagles could eventually release Jeffery, especially if his rehab isn't going well. The 30-year-old wideout caught just 43 passes for 490 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games in 2019. He has played a combined 23 games the last two years due to injuries, and his fantasy and real-life stock is falling quickly.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery was actively shopped after the team guaranteed his 2020 salary last season. Jeffery found out that he was on the market and was troubled by the mixed messages he had received from the team, a source close to the receiver said.
Fantasy Spin: Jeffery is now 30 and has been riddled by injuries his entire career. He hasn't had a 1,000-yard season since 2014, and he has very minimal upside as a WR5.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery had the option in his contract exercised Friday, March 27.
Fantasy Spin: Jeffery's status with the team is still uncertain, so fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation. He was limited to 10 games last season because of injuries and finished with 490 receiving yards. He could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in 2020 depending on his situation.
Updating a previous report, the agent for Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery refuted a claim that his client would welcome a trade to another team. In a Twitter post Friday, Feb. 21, agent Tory Dandy wrote that Jeffery 'loves being in the city of Philly and playing for the Eagles.'
Fantasy Spin: The 30-year-old Jeffery is coming off a disappointing 2019 campaign where he only had 43 receptions for 490 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games, marking his worst statistical performance since his rookie season in 2012. He is also in the middle of a nine-month recovery period from Lisfranc surgery last December, so his trade value couldn't be much lower. At best, Jeffery should be viewed as a WR4 for next season's fantasy drafts.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery could be open to a trade if the team explores one this offseason. However, he could be tough to trade coming off a Lisfranc foot injury while having high salary cap numbers the next two seasons. Jeffery has a history of injuries during his playing career and managed to play in just 10 games for the Eagles in 2019, catching 43 passes for 490 yards and four touchdowns. It was his lowest yardage total since his rookie year in 2012 with Chicago. The 30-year-old posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with the Bears in 2013-14, but he's become an inconsistent, injury prone wideout the last two seasons in Philly. A change of scenery wouldn't necessarily make him any more attractive to fantasy owners.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) is fully amenable with a trade this offseason and 'would welcome the change of scenery,' according to story published by The Athletic on Friday, Feb. 21.
Fantasy Spin: While the timing appears right for both the Eagles and Jeffery to move on, Jeffery's value is currently at a low with the wideout just turning 30 and facing a nine-month recovery from Lisfranc foot surgery in December. With the question marks and coming off his least-productive season (43 catches-490 yards-4 TDs) since his rookie year of 2012, Jeffery has now slid down into WR4 territory for fantasy.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) underwent surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury Saturday, Dec. 14, by noted foot specialist Robert Anderson. The hope is that Jeffery is ready for the 2020 season.
Fantasy Spin: Jeffery will be 30 next season, and he has missed at least three games in four of the last five seasons. He'll likely be in the WR5 mix next season, but his upside as a top-36 receiver is waning.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (foot), who was officially placed on Injured Reserve on Thursday, is dealing with a Lisfranc injury that is expected to require surgery. He's facing many months of recovery ahead and could be in danger of not being ready for training camp next summer. Jeffery will turn 30 in February and he'll probably be avoided by most fantasy owners going into 2020 drafts after not playing in a full season since 2017. He had just 43 receptions for 490 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games for the Eagles this year. At best, Jeffery will be seen as a WR3 for fantasy owners going into next season.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) was diagnosed with a Lisfranc injury Thursday, Dec. 12, and will undergo surgery at some point in the near future, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Fantasy Spin: Jeffery was officially placed on IR earlier in the day, but we did not know exactly what injury he was dealing with. Now we do. Jeffrey faces a long rehab schedule and will be difficult to trust moving forward, as Lisfranc injuries tend to be tricky. The oft-injured receiver will turn 30 years old over the winter but figures to be a safe bet to return considering he is guaranteed $11.5 million next season. Expect Philadelphia to address the receiver position heavily this offseason.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (foot) has been placed on Injured Reserve and will miss the remainder of the 2019 season. Jeffrey suffered the injury in Week 14 against the Giants, when he was carted off the field in the second quarter. Jeffrey caught 43 passes for 430 yards and four touchdowns on the season. The Eagles promoted Robert Davis from their practice squad in a corresponding move. With Jeffery out, the Eagles will rely more on their tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, while J.J. Arcega-Whiteside should see an uptick in targets as well.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Dec. 12. WR Robert Davis was promoted from the practice squad and free-agent WR Deontay Burnett (49ers) was signed to the practice squad.
Philadelphia Eagles DE Derek Barnett (ankle), WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) and OT Lane Johnson (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11. CB Jalen Mills (elbow) was limited during practice, while LB Kamu Grugier-Hill (concussion) fully participated in practice.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is done for the year after suffering a non-contact foot injury during Monday night's game. Jeffery went down in the second quarter and won't return until next season. It's a huge blow to the Eagles, who have one of the thinnes9wide receiver groups in the NFL. Jeffery looked like he'd lost a step this year and it's unlikely he'll look any quicker next season. With such a shallow group at wide receiver, Jeffery will probably be back with the Eagles next season, but his days as a strong fantasy starter are almost surely behind him.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) is out for the rest of the season with a foot injury he suffered in Week 14 against the New York Giants, according to a source. The team is still reportedly gathering opinions about the exact injury, however.
Fantasy Spin: This injury wraps up yet another injury-shortened season for the 29-year-old, who has played a full season once in the last five years - averaging only 12 games over that span. Jeffrey is still due $12.75 million over each of the final two years of his deal, so he's probably not going anywhere this offseason. With Nelson Agholor also ailing, the Eagles could be forced to finish the season with Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and a few practice squad players at the position.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was forced to leave Monday's game against the New York Giants due to a foot injury. Jeffery limped off the field after going down while running a route in the second quarter. He was carted into the locker room from the sideline. He made zero catches on two bad targets before getting hurt. It's a devastating blow to fantasy owners who trusted Jeffery after his huge Week 13 performance, but potentially even worse for the Eagles, who are left with just Greg Ward and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside as the only wide receivers in uniform.
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) will not return to the Week 14 game against the New York Giants due to his foot injury.
Fantasy Spin: Jeffery was carted off in the first half and immediately went to the locker room. He finished without a catch on two targets. Greg Ward Jr., JJ Arcega-Whiteside and Josh Perkins will steer the ship home at wide receiver.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) left the Week 14 game against the New York Giants in the first half due to a foot injury and he is questionable to return. He was carted off and taken to the locker room.
Fantasy Spin: With Jeffery in the locker room only J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward Jr. are available at wide receiver, and Joshua Perkins, a third-string tight end, can also line up at wideout.
The Miami Dolphins claimed wide receiver Mack Hollins off waivers from the Eagles on Wednesday. The former fourth-round pick had just 10 catches for 125 yards in 12 games for the Eagles this year and failed to capitalize with Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson missing games with injuries. Even on a Miami team with little receiver depth, Hollins should be well behind the likes of Devante Parker, Allen Hurns, Albert Wilson and perhaps even newly acquired Trevor Davis. Continue to leave Hollins on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will look for another big game with another strong matchup in Week 14. The Eagles will face off against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football with Jeffery coming off a nine-catch, 137-yard performance in which he scored a touchdown against the Dolphins. Jeffery looked completely over the ankle injury that had been hobbling him in recent weeks, and he could be in for another strong performance in the first week of the fantasy playoffs. He's a strong WR2 with upside.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery caught nine of his 16 targets for 137 yards and a touchdown in a 37-31 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 13.
Fantasy Spin: Believe it or not, Jeffery topped 100 yards for the first time this season in the loss. He draws another favorable matchup in Week 14 against the New York Giants, making Jeffery a high-upside WR3 candidate.
