2017 Week 6 vs CAR (10 / 4 / 71 / 0 rec)
Alshon Jeffery finally had a matchup that he could exploit after having difficult matchups seemingly every week so far this season. Jeffery led the team in targets, receptions, and yards in this game as he was the primary focus of Wentz and the offense, but caught just 40% of the passes that were thrown to him as he was often double-teamed or Wentz was inaccurate missing him on a throw. Jeffery's highlight catch was a 37-yard reception in which he was able to out run Keyvon Seymour and Wentz threw a perfect ball hitting Jeffery in stride.
2017 Week 5 vs ARI (4 / 3 / 31 / 0 rec)
The tough matchups continue for Alshon Jeffery who was shadowed by Patrick Peterson in this game and it showed as he only had 4 targets in this game as the team elected to take advantage of the other matchups in this game.
2017 Week 4 vs LAC (6 / 3 / 29 / 1 rec)
Alshon Jeffery was largely shut down this past week as he had a difficult matchup going up against Casey Hayward. While he was able to find the end zone in this game he was largely taken out of this game. He was only able to catch three of his six targets and these were primarily on underneath routes as the Chargers effective took him out of this game.
2017 Week 3 vs NYG (8 / 4 / 56 / 0 rec)
Alshon Jeffery drew a difficult matchup in this game going up against Janoris Jenkins. Tough matchups seem to be the trend for Jeffery as he has had one every week, but once again Jeffery continues to be a part of this offense as Carson Wentz tries to get the ball to him as he had 8 targets in this game. Jeffery made the catch of the day with one second left on the game clock that setup the 61 yard game winning field goal, as the pass very easily could have been intercepted had Jeffery not taken an aggressive stance on the ball to ensure that he stepped in front of it to catch it.
2017 Week 2 vs KC (13 / 7 / 92 / 1 rec)
Alshon Jeffery in a tough matchup against Marcus Peters came through in a big way this week. After being shut down last week by Josh Norman. Jeffery was able to find the end zone in this game after an intentional back shoulder throw by Carson Wentz in which Jeffery was able to contour his body back towards the ball catch it on the ground and crawl into the end zone. Jeffery led the team with 13 targets in this game, and while he caught only 7 of these he was trusted by Wentz to just throw the ball up to Alshon and let him go get it.
2017 Week 1 vs WAS (7 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec)
Alshon Jeffery had a tough matchup this week going up against Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland. Jeffery was still targeted 7 times in this game and almost had a touchdown on a long pass which was broken up by Bashaud Breeland. Jeffery was on the field for 88% of the offensive plays, and will clearly have a big role in this game. The team attempted to force targets to him even when he was not open which is a good sign moving forward in easier matchups that he should continue to be the number one receiver in this offense.

Our View: Jeffery wasn't able to break through for a huge game in one of his few games so far this year against a cornerback who isn't among the league's best, but he was still adequate. We'll be waiting to see if Josh Norman is back next week before deciding whether to start Jeffery against Washington.
