  • Alshon Jeffery Tweaks His Calf

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (calf, foot) was hoping to make his season debut on Thursday night against the Giants, but he was ruled out for Week 7 due to a minor calf strain that he suffered recently. The Eagles are hoping he can ramp himself up and be ready to face the Cowboys in Week 8. The 30-year-old just can't get away from the injury bug, which has caused most fantasy managers to completely forget that he exists at all. But Jeffery should be the team's top receiver when/if he's finally healthy this year. It might not amount to him being much more than a WR3/4 for fantasy purposes, but those in deeper leagues looking for receiver depth should consider stashing him now.

  • Alshon Jeffery, Malik Jackson Ruled Out For Thursday

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (foot) and defensive tackle Malik Jackson (quadriceps) have been ruled out for Thursday night against the Giants. While Jeffery has been limited in practice the last couple of weeks, he has yet to make his 2020 debut after offseason surgery. The oft-injured 30-year-old will eventually be a starter for the Eagles as they work him back in, though, so he's worth stashing for receiver depth in deeper leagues. He could very well make his debut in Week 8 against the Cowboys and their awful defense. DeSean Jackson (hamstring) is on track to make his return on Thursday after a three-game absence, which could be bad news for Travis Fulgham, Greg Ward and rookie John Hightower.

  • Alshon Jeffery Unlikely To Debut On Thursday Night

    Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said it would be hard to get wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (foot) ready on a short week against the Giants on Thursday night. Jeffery has been limited so far in practice this week, but the Eagles remain cautious with him since he has yet to play in 2020 while coming off foot surgery. The good news is that Philly could get DeSean Jackson (hamstring) back in Week 7. Regardless, Travis Fulgham remains the most attractive fantasy wideout for the Eagles against a shaky Giants Defense on Thursday night. Rookie John Hightower and Greg Ward will also see playing time even if Jackson is active. Jeffery could return in Week 8 against the Cowboys and is a stash option for receiver depth.

  • Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson Both Listed As Limited Monday

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (foot) and DeSean Jackson (hamstring) were both listed as limited practice participants Monday ahead of Thursdays contest versus the Giants. Both receivers were out of the equation Sunday against Baltimore, with Jackson already expected to suit up come Thursday. As for Jeffery, he would be making his season debut after working his way back from a Lisfranc injury. Having either back in the mix would be a boon for Carson Wentz, who will be without Zach Ertz (ankle) for the foreseeable future. Travis Fulgham has become a breakout fantasy sensation over the past three weeks, and while his stock would take a dip with Jeffery or Jackson back, any of the three are season-long options against a shaky Giants secondary.

  • Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson Ruled Out

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (foot) and DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and offensive tackle Lane Johnson (ankle) have been ruled out for Week 6 against the Ravens. Jeffery has yet to play in 2020, but he's been limited in practices the last couple weeks and could make his debut in Week 7. Jackson will miss his third straight game and has developed a reputation for being a slow healer. The speedy deep threat didn't take advantage of the team being banged up at the position when he was on the field to begin the year, making him droppable in shallow leagues. Greg Ward and Travis Fulgham, who exploded for 152 yards and a touchdown last week, should continue to see increased usage. There's flex appeal in deeper leagues, but temper expectations against a stingy Ravens Defense.
