Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 11 vs NO (5 / 4 / 33 / 0 rec)
Jeffery had a single catch in the first half against the Saints before adding two nice plays in the second half of note. Jeffery adjusted to a pass behind him on a slant route and later snagged a ball away from his body. Jeffery has been largely forgettable the past two games with Golden Tate added to the mix after a hot start to his injury-shortened season.
2018 Week 10 vs DAL (8 / 4 / 48 / 0 rec)
Jeffery's performance against Dallas was up and down. He struggled to separate overall with two notable targets broken up by defensive backs. A third missed connection was the fault of Carson Wentz, who was late on a deep sideline throw, after Jeffery was wide open earlier on the route. Jeffery exceled corralling low throws with two such receptions in the game plus added a back shoulder catch late in the game. With Zach Ertz doubling Jeffery's target number this week and Golden Tate added to the mix, Jeffery's lead receiver status is flimsy at best heading forward.
2018 Week 8 vs JAX (5 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec)
As the Eagles spread the ball around in the passing game against Jacksonville, Jeffery had a tempered game with five targets, his lowest mark since returning to the lineup in Week 4. Jeffery converted a pair of third downs on his most impactful receptions, plus added quality separation from Jalen Ramsey on a deeper out route catch. After the Eagles' Week 9 bye, Jeffery gets another stiff defensive test with the Cowboys.
2018 Week 7 vs CAR (10 / 7 / 88 / 1 rec)
Jeffery was outstanding against the Panthers, logging his third game of at least seven receptions in the month since returning to the Eagles lineup from injury. Jeffery converted a fourth down out route early in the game plus separated with ease on a red zone out route touchdown. Jeffery converted a contested high-point target plus broke a tackle after the catch on another occasion. Beyond the box score, Jeffery added a long defensive pass interference penalty on the Eagles' final drive. With Nelson Agholor seeing most of his usage within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage, Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz are the intermediate targets for Carson Wentz on a weekly basis.
2018 Week 6 vs NYG (12 / 8 / 74 / 2 rec)
Jeffery has been peppered in his three games since returning to the lineup and this week's win over the Giants was no different with 12 targets (33% of the team targets) this week. Jeffery logged two touchdowns with a goal line slant and arguably Carson Wentz's best throw of the game across his body on a third down in the red zone. However, Jeffery did leave production on the field with two drops on short-to-intermediate targets. Beyond the box score, Jeffery added a defensive pass interference penalty. Jeffery draws a softer Panthers secondary next week after an outstanding showing against the usually-stingy Giants pass defense.
2018 Week 5 vs MIN (8 / 2 / 39 / 0 rec)
It was a tough game for Jeffery against the Vikings. After his Week 4 debut was such a positive one, this comes as a disappointment considering his eight targets from Carson Wentz. Jeffery did not see a target until the late second quarter, promptly dropping a full extension target on third-and-long. Jeffery's two receptions were impactful, however, with a 30+ yard catch as Carson Wentz moved back in the pocket and a fourth down laser to a diving Jeffery in the red zone, a must-have play in the fourth quarter. Jeffery logged another drop late in the game on third-and-long, taking a big hit in the process in field goal range. While the clear No.2 target to Zach Ertz this week, Jeffery had the fifth-most receiving yards on the team.
2018 Week 4 vs TEN (9 / 8 / 105 / 1 rec)
Jeffery saw his 2018 season debut against the Titans, a much-needed addition to the Eagles up-and-down wide receiver corps. While Nelson Agholor saw more targets, Jeffery was far more efficient. Jeffery started out with an impact, securing a down-the-sideline target for 30+ yards, one of Carson Wentz's better throws on the day. Jeffery saw two end zone targets, hauling in one with an impressive high-point in traffic. The chemistry with Wentz was also impressive as the pair connected on a back-shoulder throw.
