"Whose Target Is It Anyway?" - Philadelphia Eagles



Written by: Derek Tate

Alshon Jeffery (ADP WR15/Overall 34)
  • Dating back to his time in KC, a Doug Pederson offense has produced only one 1,000 yard WR (Jeremy Maclin) in 4 seasons.
  • With Jordan Matthews now in Buffalo, Alshon should see a significant amount of the vacant 117 targets that went Matthews' direction last season.
  • Posted a career low of 2 TDs last season
  • Recent: Alshon did make his Eagles debut in Week 2 of the preseason. If (a very big if) his health holds up, Alshon will return on your investment and produce a top 15 season.

  • Zach Ertz (ADP TE10/Overall 98)
  • Ertz finished in the top 5 at his position for receptions, yards and targets.
  • In his last 16 games, he has posted a stat line of 100/1090/4
  • With proven top 5 potential, Matthews no longer working the slot and the addition of legit receiving threat Jeffery and speed threat Torrey Smith, Ertz could see plenty of mismatch looks in the passing attack.
  • He is properly priced, possibly undervalued, in the 8th-10th round currently.

  • Torrey Smith (ADP WR64/Overall 144)
  • When the San Francisco 49ers front office believe you can no longer help their WR core, you may understand why I’m not a Torrey Smith believer.
  • His receptions, yards and TDs have declined (rapidly) each of the past three seasons.
  • Has posted only one season with over 1,000 yards receiving or more than 50 receptions
  • Torrey Smith will keep defenses honest opposite of Jeffery, but will unlikely see enough opportunities to produce a top 50 season.

  • Nelson Agholor (N/A)
  • With a disappointing 59 receptions, 648 yards and 3 TDs through his first two seasons, Agholor is unlikely to make a splash heading into his third year.
