The Philadelphia Eagles announced wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor as questionable for Week 12, but a Saturday roster move raises further questions. The Eagles promoted wide receiver Greg Ward from the practice squad a day before their matchup with the New England Patriots, per NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport.
This likely means one of the two receivers is looking like the wrong side of active for Week 12. The Eagles and Patriots square off at 4:25 p.m., so any early information we can get is helpful. Ian Rapoport or Adam Schefter might have an update prior to the early games, but for now we have to wait and see who might not be playing.
Fantasy football analysis: Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor
The Patriots have the top ranked pass defense in the league. Jeffery is the only Eagles wide receiver worth starting in this matchup, and even he is not a great start. If there is no clarity by 1:00 p.m. and you’re stuck making a roster decision, it makes more sense to lean benching Jeffery rather than risking an inactive in an already difficult matchup.
