Summary

Fantasy owners tend to be a fickle bunch, which explains why Nelson Agholor was among the best values at the position last year. The former USC Trojan was selected 20th overall in the first round of the 2015 Draft by the Eagles while Chip Kelly was head coach. In spite of the opportunity to play immediately, Agholor struggled in Kelly's system and ended his rookie year with 23 receptions for 283 yards. It looked like the nail in Agholor's coffin when his performance failed to improve in 2016 under new head coach Doug Pederson. He only caught 36 passes for 365 yards and two touchdowns, and his catch rate (52%) matched his first season. Just when we were about to shovel dirt on his grave, Agholor found a spark and became one of the team's most important playmakers. Last year Agholor was a different player after he moved into the slot. He ran crisper routes, attacked the ball in space, and was more effective after the catch. His catch rate improved to 65%, and he caught 62 receptions for 768 yards and eight touchdowns. Last year's WR21 ranking serves as a reasonable baseline for 2018; consider him one of the better WR3s on draft day with WR2 upside. (May 21)
