Week 3: vs Indianapolis Colts

All WR vs IND

FBG says: Good matchup. The Eagles welcome Carson Wentz back this week and it is much needed as while Nick Foles played well last week against the Buccaneers, he has a limited skill set that will show inconsistency throughout the season as we saw in week one. Wentz provides another dimension which is arm strength and mobility that gives defenses trouble as we saw for last season. The biggest issue for the Eagles is the lack of talent at the wide receiving position as the Eagles have lost Mike Wallace for the season which further depletes a unit that is already without Alshon Jeffery and backup Mack Hollins. The Eagles will look to Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz to play a significant role in this passing game this week. The Colts are a unit that on paper are one of the worst corner units in the NFL, but based on their statistics have been playing fairly well this season. Against the Bengals and the Redskins they've only allowed two touchdowns passing and have allowed 249 yards per game passing which is 17th in the NFL. A big reason for this is that Malik Hooker has been a welcome addition to this secondary after missing significant time in 2017 due to injury. This is a unit that has been particularly good at shutting down the tight end as they have not allowed a touchdown to a tight end this season and limited both Tyler Eifert and Jordan Reed to modest games this season.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs TB (12 / 8 / 88 / 1 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)

After a running back-like receiving stat line is Week 1, rarely venturing more than 10 yards from the line of scrimmage, Agholor expanded his role against Tampa Bay in Week 2. Mike Wallace missed the rest of the game after a first quarter injury, putting pressure on Agholor to step up. Agholor had success on a variety of routes, including a deep out, crosser for 50 yards, and a highlight fourth-and-goal corner route, making a contested play to stay in the game in the closing minutes. Agholor also had a deep out reception called back by penalty and added a drop. With Alshon Jeffery still working back from a shoulder injury, Agholor projects as the dominant top receiver heading into Carson Wentz's return to the lineup against the Colts.

2018 Week 1 vs ATL (10 / 8 / 33 / 0 rec, 1 / 16 / 0 rush)

Agholor rarely left the field for the Eagles with Alshon Jeffery out against the Falcons. Agholor was the featured receiver, but his routes and targets were centered on routes within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. Agholor had more success as a runner and passer in the game than impact plays as a receiver. Agholor had a solid run on a third down toss play and threw to Nick Foles on a third down reverse successfully. While Agholor's volume was solid with Jeffery inactive, it was clear Agholor will be used in ways to maximize his yards-after-catch ability more than downfield.
