From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): After being involved on a lot of scripted plays and one big unscripted play in Week 1, Agholor was an afterthought in the Eagles pass offense despite a huge number of attempts. It appears that he's an unreliable low ceiling option.

Week 3: vs New York Giants

All WR vs NYG

FBG says: Tough matchup. Doug Pederson's exceptionally pass-happy Eagles offense is surprising, but does make sense. It's indeed where all of his talent lies, so we should expect the trend to continue. Wentz has a gifted if inconsistent all-around playmaker (Alshon Jeffery), a reliable, seam-busting tight end (Zach Ertz), and an occasionally dynamic slot man (Nelson Agholor) to throw to. And through 2 weeks, he's topped 300 yards and 2 touchdowns twice. There are peripheral concerns here, though. Wentz struggled mightily with the deep ball as a rookie, and thus far in 2017 he's completed just 7 of 20 passes beyond 15 yards; that 35% rate would've ranked dead last among regular starters last season. It caps his upside noticeably, as accomplished deep-ball studs Jeffery and Torrey Smith go to waste a bit. He's also been beaten around more than usual thus far as his once-elite line has struggled. This remains a flawed passing game, but one that's at least shown it can flash dynamism. The Giants generally fared well in Week 2 without standout cornerback Janoris Jenkins, and they're expected to have him back for Week 3. Matthew Stafford and the Lions were ultimately effective through the air, but the Giants only allowed two receptions of note (both touchdowns, which obviously hurt). With him, Apple, and slot man Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the field - as well as a dynamic pass rush - this is a tough team to involve your wideouts much against. Their tight end defense, on the other hand, is an exploitable unit. Through 2 weeks they've been worked over by Jason Witten (7 catches for 59 yards and 1 touchdown) and Eric Ebron (5 catches for 42 yards and 1 touchdown).

Recent Game Summaries

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.

Eagles | New stance helping Nelson Agholor (Fri Sep 15, 11:46 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor said his stance has become more consistent, allowing him to be more explosive off the line and improving his timing with QB Carson Wentz.

Our View: Agholor had a preseason buzz around him from his performance during training camp. Once Jordan Matthews was traded to the Bills, it opened up the opportunity for Agholor to shine as a slot receiver for the Eagles. He played the slot in 3-WR sets for the Eagles in Week 1, and Agholor rotated with Torrey Smith in 2-WR sets with Alshon Jeffery on the opposite side. Against the Chiefs, Agholor is a WR5 or 'what the heck' flex for fantasy owners.

Eagles | Nelson Agholor posts solid Week 1 (Sun Sep 10, 04:54 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor reeled in a 58-yard touchdown pass and had six catches for 86 yards in a 30-17 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Our View: Agholor was just a possession target except on his long touchdown, which came on a play that Carson Wentz extended with his mobility and poise. While he's worth a pickup Agholor's weekly is probably exaggerated a bit by that big play.
