Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 17 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Nelson Agholor left this game with an ankle injury on the first possession of the game and did not to return.
2016 Week 16 vs NYG (5 / 2 / 47 / 1 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
In a game where Carson Wentz was wildly inaccurate, Nelson Agholor managed to come up big with a 40-yard touchdown catch to put the Eagles up 21-6 in the first half. Wentz dropped back on a play-action attempt and unloaded a deep ball for a streaking Agholor who had a step on his defender. This was an easy pitch and catch and Agholor simply outran the coverage. There was not much in the way of production outside of this touchdown catch, but it proved big in the end as the Giants mounted a furious comeback attempt in the second half.
2016 Week 11 vs SEA (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
After several drops and an illegal formation penalty that brought back an Eagles' touchdown, a group of fans have started a GoFundMe to buyout Agholor's contract so the Eagles will cut him. The former first-round pick has not lived up to expectations and seems to be making more mistakes than actual plays on the field. The game would have been much closer if the touchdown had not been called back on the Agholor penalty, and unfortunately, it is the only thing that stands out in the game as he did not record a single reception in this one.
2016 Week 10 vs ATL (5 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)
Agholor was mostly a non-factor today as he just did not look ion rhythm with Carson Wentz today. The young receiver was targeted 5 times, but could not cash in. Agholor has not looked comfortable with Wentz and showed it again this week.
2016 Week 9 vs NYG (7 / 4 / 41 / 0 rec)
Agholor was looking for a boost after the Eagles released Josh Huff earlier in the week but again failed to translate that on the field. Agholor did not benefit from an inaccurate Wentz but did manage a nice 23-yard gain after taking a short pass from Wentz down the sideline. Agholor was held out of the endzone, but so was the rest of the Eagles' wide receiver core.
2016 Week 8 vs DAL (4 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)
Agholor was rather quiet in this one, but that was easy to do when 2/3 of Wentz passes were thrown in the direction of only 3 players. Agholor did have a nice 11-yard quick hit for a first down early in the game, but he also hurt the cause with his offensive pass interference. Agholor played the second most snaps behind Jordan Matthews but was mostly a nonfactor today. Outside of his lone touchdown in the season opener, Agholor has simply not produced on the field. The former first-round pick will look to get going next week against division rival New York.
2016 Week 7 vs MIN (6 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)
Much like the rest of this offense, Agholor also struggled in this game, as he had a season-worst ten total yards. The one bright spot was that Agholor was the most targeted receiver in this game, but a lot of that was due to running the short/intermediate routes and that was what Wentz was locked in on.
2016 Week 6 vs WAS (4 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec)
Agholor had another quiet week, pulling in 3 of his 4 targets for 34 yards against the Redskins. With Josh Norman locked up on Jordan Matthews, it was Agholorís chance to step up and make some big plays. However, Agholor never got going as the Eagles were on defense for most of this game and did not sustain any long drives. Agholor is going to face a Minnesota secondary next week that does not give up many yards to opposing receivers.
2016 Week 5 vs DET (7 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Agholor was targeted a team-high 7 times but only reeled in 2 passes for 27 yards. The Lion's coverage was tight on Agholor and he could not find much room to run today. Agholor was given an opportunity to step up and be the number 2 receiver behind Matthews today but did not capitalize. If he continues to see this volume of targets he will become a good play as a WR3 or in the flex, but he needs to do more with the opportunities to warrant the play.
2016 Week 3 vs PIT (3 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Agholor was very quiet in the Eagle's blowout win against the Steelers this week. He caught all 3 of his targets for 21 yards, but never really broke away in this game. Wentz has several targets to distribute the ball to and it will be a different guy each week. Agholor is very talented and has the potential to score a lot in this offense. The Eagles did not need to throw much in the second half as they had already built a big lead, limiting opportunities for the receivers. It's hard to trust Agholor at this point, as he has shown inconsistency and with how deep the Eagles are at wide receiver he is at risk of losing playing time/targets to Green-Beckham.
2016 Week 2 vs CHI (7 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)
Agholor had a great catch in the second quarter in between three Chicago Bears defenders for a gain of 18 yards over the middle. Nelson Agholor dropped two key passes in this game including one in the end zone in the fourth quarter which seems to be a trend for the second year wide receiver as he dropped 9.1% of passes in 2015. Agholor doesn't seem too concerned with this as he stated, "Dropping the football is going to happen, the quarterback is going to give you opportunities. You've got to learn from it. The cause of drops could be mental. It could be a strength thing. You've got to squeeze it. At the end of the day, you learn from it and hopefully you don't repeat those mistakes." This is completely different than Jordan Matthews calling his drop "embarrassing" which is what you want to see from a wide receiver. Agholor still is going to be heavy utilized in this offense as the former first-round pick continues to develop.
2016 Week 1 vs CLE (5 / 4 / 57 / 1 rec)
Finally, we started to see why the Eagles took Nelson Agholor in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft. After a disappointing rookie campaign, the second year player out of USC came up with a touchdown that sealed this game after he used his speed to run right by the defender on a go route. Agholor has established himself as the clear number two wide receiver which answered a major question heading into this game.
