Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 19 vs NO (3 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec, 1 / 12 / 0 rush)
Agholor was an afterthought against the Saints in the playoff loss, contributing a mere two touches, one being a manufactured rushing attempt. Agholor was not looking for the ball on his best chance for an impact play, a down-the-seam target in the fourth quarter falling harmlessly to the turf. Agholor is under contract in 2019 as his cap hit balloons to more than $9 million. Changes are coming on an Eagles depth chart with Golden Tate and Jordan Matthews free agents.
2018 Week 18 vs CHI (6 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)
Agholor was an ancillary component of the Eagles' passing game against the Bears. Despite the minimal role, Agholor converted a third down and eluded an initial defender on another reception for his main contributions. Agholor did have a touchdown opportunity with a seam target, but the contested pass was incomplete. Agholor represents the best speed threat the Eagles' offense has leading up to the divisional round matchup against the Saints.
2018 Week 17 vs WAS (6 / 5 / 40 / 2 rec)
Agholor's hot streak continued in Week 17 with two more touchdowns against Washington. Agholor stretched across the goal line for a score, which had to be reviewed, on a rare play through contact for the speedy Agholor. Later, Agholor was turned loose on a crossing route, where he exploited the open field opportunity down the sideline for a score to ice the game. Agholor's noteworthy speed will be needed in the Eagles' playoff showdown in Chicago next week.
2018 Week 16 vs HOU (7 / 5 / 116 / 1 rec)
Agholor posted his best performance of the season and his first touchdown since Week 2. Agholor was on the receiving end of one of Nick Foles' best throws of the game, a perfect deep pass as Agholor scored the long touchdown in a tie game. In addition to Agholor's 116 yards, he also had a reception called back, which would have pushed Agholor's stat line beyond 150 yards.
2018 Week 14 vs DAL (3 / 2 / 49 / 0 rec)
Agholor saw a mere three targets against Dallas but added one of the critical plays for the Eagles offense late in the game. Arguably Carson Wentz's best throw came on a deep sideline route to Agholor, who burst past the defensive back. Agholor nearly scored and was down to the goal line on the play. Agholor also dropped a screen pass and added a short reception. Agholor's touchdown drought, nearly ended this week, has now grown to 11 games and nearly 40 receptions.
2018 Week 13 vs WAS (8 / 4 / 56 / 0 rec)
After a recent downturn in offensive involvement Agholor popped up with eight targets against Washington, second most on the team. Agholor converted a deep crossing route for more than 35 yards into field goal range and nearly scored on a red zone slant, tackled at the one-yard-line. Agholor had potential for a bigger game but Carson Wentz missed a wide open Agholor on a third-down crossing route with after-the-catch promise. Agholor is an ancillary target most weeks, but saw his highest volume of targets since Week 4.
2018 Week 10 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 83 / 0 rec)
Agholor had his best game in a month with a variety of quality plays against Dallas. Agholor hauled in a perfect deep ball from Carson Wentz down to the goal line as well as making a sliding grab and a throw behind him on two other occasions. In addition to the long catch, Agholor had another touchdown opportunity at the goal line with a rushing attempt, which was stuffed by the defense.
2018 Week 8 vs JAX (6 / 3 / 49 / 0 rec, 1 / 14 / 0 rush)
Agholor saw a team-high six targets against the Jaguars, but much of his production came on a single catch. Agholor came wide open on a deep out route, turning into yards-after-catch and 40+ yards versus zone coverage. Agholor was stuffed on a smoke screen and another long gain was thwarted by Carson Wentz's inaccuracy on a deep corner route. Agholor is on the touchdown regression watch list heading into the Eagles' bye week without a touchdown since Week 2, spanning 25 receptions.
2018 Week 7 vs CAR (7 / 6 / 20 / 0 rec)
After an efficient Week 6 effort, Agholor was held in check by Carolina. Agholor's short targets resulted in minimal after-the-catch opportunities, being consistently stuffed by the first defender including three screen passes. Agholor did find some separation on a corner route, but an off-target Carson Wentz target was one of Wentz's rare blips of inaccuracy in the game.
2018 Week 6 vs NYG (5 / 3 / 91 / 0 rec)
Agholor has fallen back in the Eagles passing pecking order with a mere five targets and two of Agholor's three receptions coming off broken plays. Agholor showed quality awareness as Carson Wentz was hit during his motion with the ball floating into the air over the middle of the field. Agholor came back to the football and turned the potential turnover into a chunk gain. Later, Agholor was wide open on a broken play as Wentz extended the play for a catch-and-run of 50+ yards. Agholor is firmly on the touchdown regression watch list with four games and 16 receptions since his last foray into the end zone and Carolina's suspect secondary up next.
2018 Week 5 vs MIN (4 / 4 / 45 / 0 rec)
Agholor has taken a notable step back since Carson Wentz and Alshon Jeffery have returned from injury and this week against the Vikings was no exception. Agholor did well with the targets he did receive, breaking a tackle on a slot screen and hauling in two deeper targets, including a corner route when the Eagles were in a need of a momentum-changing play in the second half. Agholor did had a false start penalty on the negative side.
2018 Week 4 vs TEN (12 / 5 / 22 / 0 rec)
Agholor took a step back in Week 4 against the Titans, logging by far his worst game of the season despite 12 targets. Agholor contributed three drops, including two on third downs and one in overtime, plus fumbled after a catch, which fortunately when out of bounds. Alshon Jeffery returned and showed strong chemistry with Carson Wentz. After the strong game in Week 2, Agholor is on a declining track to a short-range receiver within the construct of the Eagles passing game and third in line behind Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz.
2018 Week 3 vs IND (5 / 4 / 24 / 0 rec)
Agholor had another clear run of wide receiver targets with Alshon Jeffery yet to return to the lineup against the Colts. However, Agholor did not collect his typical short-range targets as previous weeks. Agholor did not see a target until the mid-second quarter and his lone deep target was tipped away. Agholor was held in check after the catch, including a screen opportunity. On the plus side, Agholor showed physicality by churning through contact for two third down conversions. Accounting for 14% of the targets is a discouraging sign with Dallas Goedert emerging in prominence this week and Alshon Jeffery likely to return in the next few weeks.
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.
