Week 11: vs New England Patriots
FBG says: Bad matchup. Carson Wentz came into the season with high expectations after two injury-filled seasons. The reality is he has not gotten back to that MVP level performance that he was at in 2017 before his knee injury. Wentz and this offense have thrown for 240 yards or less in four of their last five games. The reality is that this is an offense that has dealt with significant injury as DeSean Jackson is out for the season, Alshon Jeffery has been banged up, Nelson Agholor has struggled, and Zach Ertz has not seen the production that we have become accustomed to over the past few seasons. This is an offense that will need to get it figured out quickly as they are facing quite possibly the league's best secondary this week. The Patriots secondary has been tremendous all season. While the competition has been lacking for a large portion of the season, the Patriots have allowed only one quarterback to throw for over 200 yards on the year, have allowed just three passing touchdowns all season, and have allowed only one wide receiver over 100 yards. This is a veteran group that plays a Dime defense as their base defense and essentially takeaway the pass as corners Jason McCourty, Stephon Gilmore, and Jonathan Jones are all playing at an elite level to go along with safeties Devin McCourty and Duron Harmon. This is a nightmare matchup for the Eagles with the Patriots coming off of a bye after their defense gave up 37 points last week.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 9 vs CHI (8 / 4 / 36 / 0 rec)
Jeffery had an up-and-down game against his former Chicago team, logging an ugly third-down drop but also corralling a contested catch. Jeffery's lone big play opportunity game when he was wide open down the sideline, but Carson Wentz overthrew the big-bodied receiver. Jeffery had no touchdown opportunities in the game.
2019 Week 8 vs BUF (6 / 4 / 64 / 0 rec)
In a low-volume attack against Buffalo, Jeffery led the team with six targets. Much of his production came on a perfect deep throw from Carson Wentz for 38 yards. Jeffery flashed his ball skills on a full-extension grab on another occasion and Jeffery added a third-down deep out route conversion as well. Jeffery had a 50/50 back shoulder target which was not converted. Jeffery has been a consistent intermediate target for the Eagles this season but looks to have lost a step or two from his prime to expect consistent big plays or a legitimate vertical dimension to the offense.
2019 Week 7 vs DAL (5 / 2 / 38 / 0 rec)
Jeffery led the team in targets, but with a modest total of five as the Eagles struggled to maintain scoring drives in the blowout loss at Dallas. Jeffery's lone impact play was Carson Wentz's best throw of the game, a sideline pass between defenders to Jeffery. Jeffery also dropped a chunk reception and did not have a chance to corral a too-tall target from Wentz in the end zone. The Bills offer another tough test in Week 8 for Jeffery to top 80 yards for the first time this season.
2019 Week 6 vs MIN (12 / 10 / 76 / 1 rec)
Jeffery paced the Eagles with 12 targets against the Vikings on a myriad of routes. Early in the game everything was short for Jeffery, collecting four receptions by the opening minutes of the second quarter. Jeffery was also stuffed on two screen passes in the game. Jeffery had three catches of highlight quality, however, showing flashes of his earlier-career dominance at times. Jeffery controlled a stick throw from an improvising Carson Wentz at the goal line and hauled in a trust throw between the pair in a contested downfield situation right over the defensive back. Over the past three games Jeffery has a hearty 29 targets and 19-166-2 stat line since returning from injury.
2019 Week 5 vs NYJ (8 / 6 / 52 / 0 rec)
Jeffery led the Eagles with a sturdy eight targets against the Jets, but not do much down the field. Jeffery turned a smoke screen into a 10-yard gain and corralled a red zone slant to convert a third down. However, the field has shrunk for the older veteran through three games as he is averaging less than 1- yards-per-reception and not seeing many targets to the intermediate and deep levels of the field. DeSean Jackson returning to the lineup, projected soon, offers bigger openings for Jeffery to work for after-the-catch opportunities.
2019 Week 4 vs GB (9 / 3 / 38 / 1 rec)
Jeffery returned to the Eagles lineup against the Packers with DeSean Jackson still notably out with injury. Jeffery did not see a target until the second quarter but led the team with 33% of the targets for the game overall. Jeffery had an up-and-down game in his return and the connection with Carson Wentz was hit-and-miss. Jeffery dropped a slant after a wide-open touchdown on the same route earlier in the first half. Jeffery also had two contested targets tipped away by defenders. With a chance to ice the game in the closing minutes, a third-down out route by Jeffery was missed due to an inaccurate Carson Wentz throw.
2019 Week 2 vs ATL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jeffery left the game with a calf injury.
2019 Week 1 vs WAS (7 / 5 / 49 / 1 rec, 1 / 2 / 1 rush)
Jeffery saw the most snaps of Eagles receivers against Washington but was largely overshadowed by DeSean Jackson's two long touchdowns. However, Jeffery operated well on short-to-intermediate targets, including converting a third-and-goal touchdown off an inside screen design and extending a fourth quarter drive with a critical third-down reception. With so many weapons on the Eagles offense, Jeffery's weekly role is questionable in terms of targets as was the case in Week 1 behind DeSean Jackson and Zach Ertz.
