From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 16): Agholor dropped a potential game-winning score that would have given him a huge night. He will have an increased role as long the Eagles passcatchers are riddled by injuries.

General News (Mon Sep 16): was evaluated for a possible concussion, passed the test and was able to check back into the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons in the third quarter.

Week 3: vs Detroit Lions

All WR vs DET

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The injury bug bit the Philadelphia Eagles' receiving unit throughout week two, as the team lost Alshon Jeffrey, DeSean Jackson, and Dallas Goedert for the matchup against Atlanta. In week three, Alshon Jeffrey's status is in doubt, and in his place rookie, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside will likely step into the starting lineup. The Eagles drafted Arcega-Whiteside, a physically-gifted jump-ball specialist from Stanford, in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The rookie was unimpressive in his first crack at significant playing time in the NFL, and expectations for his production in the short-term should be tempered. Additionally, DeSean Jackson is unlikely to see the field in week three. In Jackson's place, Mack Hollins is poised to make his first career start. Hollins, a third-year receiver, produced 5 catches for 50 yards on 8 targets in what was effectively his first career start against the Falcons. In the absence of two key contributors, Carson Wentz primarily utilized Nelson Algoholor and Zach Ertz through the air, as he targeted the duo 11 and 16 times, respectively. Philadelphia's offensive line entered the season as one of the league's best, and the first two weeks of the 2019 season have solidified this ranking. Philadelphia's passing attack, when healthy, is a strength of this roster. In week three, battling various injuries, Doug Pederson and the rest of the coaching staff have their work cut out for them trying to construct a dangerous passing attack. The Detroit Lions opened the season against the Arizona Cardinals' up-tempo offense in both quarterback Kyler Murray and head coach Kliff Kingsbury's first taste of NFL action. Murray finished with 308 passing yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception on the day: a stat line driven by an extremely pass-heavy comeback attempt. In week two, Detroit faced off with a much slower, and depleted, Los Angeles Chargers passing attack. Philip Rivers posted 293 yards, 0 touchdowns, and 1 interception on 36 passing attempts in the game. Rivers, however, entered the game without his number-one tight end, Hunter Henry, and a hampered number-two wide receiver, as Mike Williams played through a knee injury. The Detroit pass-rush has been perfectly average through two weeks, generating middling-pressure numbers on opposing quarterbacks. On the back-end, Detroit fields one of the league's best cornerbacks, Darius Slay. Slay is one of the few cornerbacks in the NFL that follows the opposition's number-one wide receiver in coverage, regardless of whether it is on the left or right side of the formation. Against Philadelphia, it is unclear whether or not he will shadow one wide receiver throughout the game, but if he does, Slay will follow Nelson Algholor. As a whole, Detroit's pass defense is a league-average unit at all levels, from the pass-rush to pass-coverage.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs ATL (11 / 8 / 107 / 1 rec)

With DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery in-game injuries, Agholor was thrust into a critical role against Atlanta. Agholor was peppered with targets (11) on a myriad of different routes. Agholor controlled a laser fourth-down touchdown pass from Carson Wentz and kept the Eagles alive in the closing minutes with a fourth-and-long heave downfield by Wentz. Agholor took a huge hit on another end zone target to break up a potential touchdown and dropped a long sideline target in the close game as missed opportunities. Agholor's viability is connected to the health of Jackson and Jeffery in future weeks, but Agholor performed admirably in necessity Week 2.
