News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 20): Alshon Jeffery is starting to emerge from a crowded Eagles passing game and their crowded backfield is more than up to the task of making this a balanced offense. Agholor is just bench depth until we see him get back in the end zone with consistency.

2017 Week 9 vs DEN (4 / 2 / 36 / 0 rec)
Agholor was in a tough matchup going up against Chris Harris in this game who is one of the best cornerbacks in the league. Agholor was largely shut down in this game outside of a 35-yard reception in which Agholor simply outran Harris on a deep fade route in which the two came down fighting for the ball and Agholor held on for the reception.
2017 Week 8 vs SF (3 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)
Agholor's value this season has primarily come from deep passes in which he is able to use his speed to get behind defenses for a long touchdown or on a crossing route out of the slot for a touchdown. The Eagles did not throw deep this game to Agholor as they were content with their lead to utilize Agholor on shorter routes and more of a traditional slot receiver.
2017 Week 7 vs WAS (5 / 4 / 45 / 1 rec)
The Eagles' passing game was very spread out and Agholor was not really featured until the second half. Agholor was the beneficiary of a 10-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to put the game away. The final touchdown for the Eagles came on a play action pass up the seam to Agholor. The young receiver had to go up high to get the ball in front of the safety that was closing in. There was no press at the line and Agholor was able to run free for the touchdown. Agholor's longest play came on a 14-yard catch and run out route. No Philadelphia receiver really took over the game, but Wentz did a great job spreading the ball around.
2017 Week 6 vs CAR (7 / 4 / 55 / 1 rec)
Agholor continues to shine this season out of the slot as he is continuing to see a high number of targets and running a full route tree of short and long passes. Agholor continues to show his speed as he ran a 4.42 40-yard dash coming out of USC. Agholor was able to find the end zone in this game on a quick slant that he was an easy touchdown on a mismatch against linebacker Shaq Thompson who had no chance to keep up with Agholor.
2017 Week 5 vs ARI (5 / 4 / 93 / 1 rec)
Nelson Agholor continues to use the big play in this offense as a large part of his productivity is coming from the deep passes. Agholor's highlight this week was a 72-yard touchdown pass which was the longest touchdown reception of Agholor's career so far. Agholor caught the ball around the 20-yard line and was hand fighting with Budda Baker before Baker slipped and fell down allowing Agholor easy access to run into the end-zone with no one around him.
2017 Week 4 vs LAC (4 / 3 / 58 / 0 rec)
Nelson Agholor only saw four targets in this game but was able to capitalize on these particularly on a 36 yard go route where he was able to run past Desmond King and Carson Wentz was able to throw a perfect pass hitting Agholor in stride. Agholor was on the field for 77% of the time surpassing Torrey Smith for the first time this season and lined up at more positions than just the slot which is encouraging moving forward.
2017 Week 3 vs NYG (3 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
Agholor was largely a non-factor in this game as while he was on the field for 45 snaps he saw only three targets in this game.
2017 Week 2 vs KC (3 / 1 / 9 / 1 rec)
Nelson Agholor had a rough day against Phillip Gaines as he did not have a catch until eight seconds left in the game where he was able to tip toe along the back end line for a touchdown. Agholor saw his number of snaps increase in this game as he was on the field for 76% of plays compared to just 61% last week.
2017 Week 1 vs WAS (8 / 6 / 86 / 1 rec)
Nelson Agholor had the game of his career in this game which was highlighted by a 58 yard touchdown reception in which Agholor smartly kept his eyes on Carson Wentz as Wentz was scrambling and adjusted his route to get wide open for the long touchdown. Outside of this long catch, Agholor was used primarily in the slot in this game as a possession receiver.
