Alshon Jeffery or DeSean Jackson?
Nope. The leading receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers was Travis Fulgham (who?), who finished the game with 10 catches for 152 and a touchdown.
A former sixth round pick of the Detroit Lions in 2019, Fulgham could be the next big thing, or he could be the next flash in a pan. Do we trust him - or any of the other Eagles wide receivers - this week when the Eagles face off in a Battle of the Birds to host the Baltimore Ravens?
Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles WRs Greg Ward, John Hightower, Travis Fulgham
Who is Travis Fulgham?
He’s the guy who led the Eagles pass-catchers with 13 - that’s right: 13 - targets last week. If he’s emerging as the number one wide receiver for the Eagles, regardless of the pedigree, then he’s definitely an intriguing look against the Baltimore Ravens, who gave up a combined 150+ yards and two touchdowns to Mecole Hardman and Tyreek Hill of the Kansas City Chiefs just two short weeks ago.
But even considering the numbers of the Chiefs receivers, and recognizing a large portion of that production comes from the arm of Patrick Mahomes, the Ravens still allow the 7th-fewest fantasy points per week to opposing wide receivers. With that in mind, it’s hard to justify starting John Hightower and/or Greg Ward, who combined to catch only six passes last week, but Travis Fulgham is an interesting name to watch.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Sit all three, but monitor Fulgham, and start him if in a pinch.
