Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 13 vs MIA (6 / 3 / 41 / 0 rec)
Agholor was back in the lineup after a one-game absence as the secondary target to Alshon Jeffery. Agholor had two targets thwarted by poor throws by Carson Wentz, however, the pair connected on a perfect deep sideline target and a corner route two-point conversion. Agholor's long after-the-catch opportunity where he broke a tackle was called back by penalty. Agholor has not found the end zone since Week 3 but has another optimistic matchup next week against the Giants.
2019 Week 11 vs NE (9 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)
Agholor easily led the Eagles gutted wide receiver corps with nine targets against the Patriots. DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery both missed the game. Agholor had opportunities for a bigger game than his tepid 40 yards, including a near-touchdown on an end zone target running out of room on the back line before securing two feet in bounds. Also, Agholor could not haul in a fourth-down end zone target on another occasion. Agholor has not hit 50 yards in a game since Week 3 and has yet to find the end zone over the same span.
2019 Week 9 vs CHI (8 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Agholor saw a hearty eight targets but the volume led to minimal production against the Bears. Agholor hauled in a nice low reception as his lone highlight but for a modest gain. Agholor had a lone deep target but was well covered on the play. Even without DeSean Jackson in the lineup, who missed most of the game with injury, Agholor has been firmly behind both tight ends, Alshon Jeffery, and Miles Sanders in passing game impact for the better part of half a season now.
2019 Week 8 vs BUF (4 / 4 / 7 / 0 rec, 2 / 7 / 0 rush)
Agholor logged a second straight non-factor performance, this time against the Bills. Agholor converted a quick out on third down and a jet sweep for 15+ yards as his highlights but was stuffed for a massive loss on another rushing attempt and was invisible for most of the game as a route runner. Agholor has not been a big factor in the passing game since Week 2 despite DeSean Jackson being out of the lineup and the offense leaning on Miles Sanders as the speed threat as a proxy, not Agholor during Jackson's absence.
2019 Week 7 vs DAL (4 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)
Agholor had a nondescript game, posted only two receptions despite DeSean Jackson being inactive yet again. Agholor had one deep opportunity, shedding the Dallas coverage on a post route only to be overthrown by the hot-and-hold Carson Wentz in the blowout loss. Agholor logged a deep comeback route as his lone reception of significance as he played second fiddle to Alshon Jeffery.
2019 Week 6 vs MIN (7 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)
Agholor rose in prominence in Week 6 against the Vikings with seven targets but was still fourth on the team in passing game looks as the team was in comeback mode throughout the game. Agholor was the proxy deep threat with no DeSean Jackson. His two long targets of note were both incomplete with a long end zone target being well covered and substantial defensive contact on another with no interference called. Agholor's lone highlight was a deep crossing route for 20+ yards with perfect touch exhibited by Carson Wentz. A big game was possible but dependent on converting one of his big-play opportunities.
2019 Week 5 vs NYJ (3 / 1 / 20 / 0 rec)
Agholor's three targets and shoulder-shrug stat line does not tell the story against the Jets. Agholor burned the Jets defense on two occasions downfield only to have Carson Wentz overthrow him on both targets, missing a likely touchdown on each instance. Agholor posted a third-down conversion on his lone reception to make the box score, but a huge multi-touchdown game and more than 100 yards was well within reach for the Eagles receivers.
2019 Week 3 vs DET (12 / 8 / 50 / 2 rec)
Agholor was the de facto lead receiver for a second straight week as Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson were absent against the Lions. Agholor nearly doubled any other Eagles player in targets but did little down the field. Agholor was featured in the screen and crossing route game to highlight his after-the-catch ability. One of which was a third-down crossing route where Agholor broke a tackle and zoomed for the red zone score. Agholor also benefitted from a pick play at the goal line for another score. Agholor drew a defensive pass interference penalty on his lone downfield opportunity, potentially another touchdown. Agholor lost a fumble and dropped a third-down target to tarnish an otherwise productive performance. Agholor will shift back down the totem pole once Alshon Jeffery and/or DeSean Jackson return to the lineup.
2019 Week 2 vs ATL (11 / 8 / 107 / 1 rec)
With DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery in-game injuries, Agholor was thrust into a critical role against Atlanta. Agholor was peppered with targets (11) on a myriad of different routes. Agholor controlled a laser fourth-down touchdown pass from Carson Wentz and kept the Eagles alive in the closing minutes with a fourth-and-long heave downfield by Wentz. Agholor took a huge hit on another end zone target to break up a potential touchdown and dropped a long sideline target in the close game as missed opportunities. Agholor's viability is connected to the health of Jackson and Jeffery in future weeks, but Agholor performed admirably in necessity Week 2.
