How to handle Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor’s injuries in Week 12 fantasy football

The Eagles receiving corps is banged up again this week. Here’s how to handle it in Week 12 fantasy football.

Both Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor are listed as question this week for the Philadelphia Eagles’ Sunday afternoon game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Jeffery is dealing with an ankle injury. He has not played since Week 9, when he had an underwhelming performance against the Bears. Jeffery did practice this week, in a limited role. Agholor has a knee injury, and he did not practice all week. Both players are expected to play this week, despite their varying states of injury.

These are trying times for Eagles receivers. Jeffery was not putting up significant numbers before he missed last week’s game. His best effort of the season was a 76-yard, one-touchdown performance against the Vikings back in Week 6. Since then, he’s only topped 50 yards in one of three games he played.

Agholor hasn’t been any better. He dropped a game-tying touchdown with a minute left in the fourth quarter against the Patriots last week, which would have been his first score since Week 3.

Jeffery might be worth a flyer at just $4,900 in DK leagues this week, but you could probably do better.
