What an adventure the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver position has been in 2020. Philadelphia has made the most of injury-filled group, so let’s see what we can expect from players like Travis Fulgham, Jalen Reagor and Greg Ward in fantasy lineups this weekend.
Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles WRs Travis Fulgham, Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward
DeSean Jackson returned to the Eagles last weekend but injured himself fairly quickly and may potentially miss two months with an ankle injury. In addition, Alshon Jeffery has been ruled out as he battles an injured foot.
Fulgham has taken advantage of the new opportunities and has been a real boost for fantasy purposes. He has seen double-digit targets in each of his last three games and finished last week’s game against the New York Giants with five catches for 73 yards and developed into a fairly consistent receiver. Ward caught five passes for 42 yards on six targets with a touchdown. Reagor missed some time but was activated from injured reserve earlier in the week.
Philadelphia pass catchers have a fantastic matchup with the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. In its most previous game, Dallas allowed Washington Football Team wide receiver Terry McLaurin to go for 90 yards and a touchdown on seven catches on 11 targets.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Fulgham should be starting this weekend on most fantasy lineups as a second wide receiver. Outside of him, Ward and Reagor can remain on the bench for fantasy purposes.
