  Eagles | Mack Hollins should be ready for camp    Mon Jun 3, 02:53 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Mack Hollins (sports hernia) is reportedly 'progressing well,' and head coach Doug Pederson recently said he expects Hollins to be able to practice at the start of training camp in late July - nearly 18 months after undergoing sports hernia surgery.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft, Hollins game does have promise because of his size/speed combination. The recovery from this injury has taken way too long based on standard recovery time, but it will be good to see Hollins back out there. He's a deep threat who could struggle for snaps behind DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor.

  Eagles | Mack Hollins still sidelined    Fri May 24, 09:26 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Mack Hollins (groin) is still unable to practice and doesn't have a timetable for his return, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Hollins is on the roster bubble after the team spent a fourth round pick on him in 2017. Special teams contributions are going to be crucial, and he might be pushed by Braxton Miller for a roster spot.

  Eagles | Mack Hollins, Shelton Gibson competing    Sun Mar 17, 08:41 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Mack Hollins and WR Shelton Gibson are likely competing for one roster spot after the addition of WR DeSean Jackson, in the opinion of Eliot Shorr-Parks of 94WIP Radio.

Footballguys view: We'd give a slight edge to Hollins but this competition will have to play out in training camp. Hollins, a fourth-round pick out of North Carolina in the 2017 NFL draft, flashed as a rookie in 2017 but spent all of 2018 on Injured Reserve with a groin injury. Gibson, a fifth-round pick out of West Virginia in the 2017 NFL draft, has speed to burn but only has three catches in two seasons as a pro.

  Eagles | Wednesday status report for Eagles    Wed Sep 5, 01:14 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) and WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) have been ruled out for Week 1, as expected. WR Mack Hollins (groin) will not be available either.

Footballguys view: That's the expected news for all three of these players. Jeffery should miss the first two weeks of the regular season. Wentz is missing Week 1 but there is a chance he returns for the Eagles shortly after that.

  Eagles | Mack Hollins ruled out    Wed Sep 5, 02:47 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Mack Hollins (groin) was ruled out for Week 1 on Tuesday, Sept. 4, by head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Hollins is an interesting player to monitor in deep dynasty leagues but will have to miss some time due to this injury. In his absence (and Alshon Jeffery's absence), the Eagles should turn to their tight ends even more. Zach Ertz and rookie Dallas Goedert should get plenty of looks on Thursday night against the Falcons.

  Eagles | Tuesday injury report for Eagles    Tue Sep 4, 02:54 PM

Philadelphia Eagles DE Michael Bennett (knee) and WR Mack Hollins (groin) did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Footballguys view: With the game on Thursday night, things are looking troubling for both players. Without Hollins, perhaps we see more of TE Dallas Goedert in the gameplan. We should see more of him anyway and have the rookie pegged as a 'what the heck' flex for Fantasy GMs in Week 1.

  Eagles | Mack Hollins to play bigger role in 2018?    Sun Jul 15, 02:20 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Mack Hollins is expected to return in the same role he played in 2017 as a core special teamer and the team's fourth receiver, although it is possible he could see a modest increase in opportunities, according to Jimmy Kempski of The Philly Voice.

Footballguys view: The trade of Torrey Smith to Carolina opened a door for Hollins, and the bargain signing of Mike Wallace closed it. Hollins has flashed in limited action and his long term outlook is still bright with Carson Wentz installed as Philadelphia's quarterback, but his short term value is limited unless an outside receiver for the Eagles gets hurt.

  Eagles | Mack Hollins aiming for more    Sun May 27, 10:50 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Mack Hollins believes wide receivers coach Gunter Brewer could help him take his performance to another level this season.

Footballguys view: Hollins, an exciting fourth-round pick from North Carolina in 2017, ran 159 routes, was targeted 22 times, caught 16 passes for 226 yards and one touchdown in 16 games for the Eagles last year. He could do more this year, but right now he's likely fourth on the depth chart behind Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Mike Wallace. We'll see if the team mixes him in more this season, and we'll continue to monitor Hollins in dynasty leagues.
