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.

Latest News

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery playing catch-up (Sun Aug 20, 11:23 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery did not practice for about a week and a half during training camp in the preseason or participate in team drills, leading wide receivers coach Mike Groh to conclude Jeffery was 'behind' his teammates when it comes to his knowledge of the playbook.

Our View: Jeffery's ceiling is 2nd-3rd value based on past production, but his connection with Carson Wentz is crucial and this isn't a positive note. Zach Ertz could lead this team in targets out of the gate.

Dolphins | DeVante Parker compared to Alshon Jeffery (Fri Aug 18, 04:45 PM) - Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is comparable to Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery but with more speed, according to QB Jay Cutler.

Our View: Cutler is a bold thrower who will give a receiver a chance to win 50-50 balls, which is not a big part of Ryan Tannehill's game. Parker's outlook is improving and he might be worth drafting ahead of Jarvis Landry at this point.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery still limited (Sat Aug 12, 04:29 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) was limited to individual drills during practice Saturday, Aug. 12.

Our View: That will be the case until Jeffery is closer to full strength. The Eagles may consider not playing Jeffery in the second preseason game.

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.
