Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward heads into the Week 4 matchup coming off a career day in a tie with the Cincinnati Bengals. He took advantage of an injured Eagles wide receiver corps and should have an opportunity to produce once again on Sunday night.
Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles WR Greg Ward
Ward caught eight passes for 72 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets on Sunday with the Philadelphia wide receivers really struggling with injuries. DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Alshon Jeffery (foot) have been ruled out for Sunday’s game. In addition, JJ Arcega-Whiteside is doubtful with a calf injury. With all these injuries, Carson Wentz has to throw the ball to somebody, and Ward might be the primary beneficiary of the targets.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
If Jeffery, Jeffery and Arcega-Whiteside cannot play, Ward can be used as a third wide receiver and receive flex consideration in standard leagues.
