Summary

Alshon Jeffery expected to break the bank in free agency. He ended up signing a one-year, 'prove it' deal with Philadelphia. Jeffery's failure to land a big contract speaks to the inconsistencies plaguing his first five seasons in Chicago. In 2013, Jeffery appeared ready to ascend into the upper echelon at the position. He caught 89 receptions for 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns and finished as the 9th ranked fantasy receiver. The following season wasn't as impressive (85 receptions for 1,133 yards) but Jeffery scored double-digit touchdowns (10) and finished WR12. The last two seasons have been disappointments. He's missed 12 games. He's caught 54 and 52 passes, respectively. He's failed to break 850 yards in either season and has only scored six combined touchdowns. Those are not elite numbers. However, on a per game basis, Jeffery continues to flash WR1 ability. The Eagles were smart to land Jeffery on a one-year deal. He has a lot to prove, and the Eagles desperately needed a true #1 receiver. The fit makes sense. Fantasy owners are betting on Jeffery staying healthy and becoming the Eagles' top option. It's a fair bet to make, but it's also a high-risk proposition. Make sure to draft another receiver with WR1 upside and a higher floor if you take a shot on Jeffery in the first few rounds.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery sitting out (Thu Aug 10, 06:51 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery will not participate in the team's preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Aug. 10.

Our View: Jeffery signed a one-year 'prove it' deal with the Eagles this year, and they'll be cautious with him during the preseason.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery expected to sit Thursday (Tue Aug 8, 11:17 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) was limited to individual drills during practice Tuesday, Aug. 8, and is not expected to play in the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Aug. 10.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery padded up (Mon Aug 7, 09:19 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is dressed for practice Monday, Aug. 7, after he was limited the previous day.

Our View: It looks like the shoulder issue was as minor as reported. As long as it doesn't come up again this month, we can put this behind us in evaluation of Jeffery's stock.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery back at practice (Sun Aug 6, 02:25 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) returned to practice Sunday, Aug. 6, after missing the previous four practices due to a shoulder strain.

Our View: The Eagles may hold him out of the preseason game on Thursday, but even if that's the case, we see his presence at practice as a comforting sign. As long as he sees some action in the next few preseason games, he should be fine and really, as long as he and Carson Wentz regularly work on the practice field, they should be able to be in sync. Jeffery is going as the No. 15 receiver off the board right now, and we know he is capable of outplaying that ADP. If he is healthy and Wentz takes the next step forward, Jeffery will put up even better numbers.
