Game day update: The Philadelphia Eagles’ passing game will be looking to get on track when they take one of the worst passing defenses on Monday Night Football. Last week against the Browns, the Eagles’ passing game was all out of sorts as Carson Wentz was turning the ball over. His leading receiver was not Travis Fulgham, it was rookie Jalen Reagor. The first-round pick had four receptions (five targets) for 52 yards and 5.2 fantasy points. It was the third-straight game that Reagor was targeted at least five times in a game.
Fulgham, who had a meteoric rise in October, has come back down to earth with the recent addition of Reagor. In his last two games, Fulgham has two receptions for 16 yards, despite being targeted 12 times. It is tough to say if you should start any Eagles wide receiver in fantasy because of the inconsistent and terrible play from Wentz. ESPN projects Reagor to score 7.0 fantasy points and Fulgham to score 8.8 points.
The Philadelphia Eagles passing offense is a mess. Quarterback Carson Wentz can’t stop turning over the ball, and there wide receiver picture is completely discombobulated, making it really difficult for fantasy football decisions this week when they host Seattle, one of the league’s worst passing defenses.
Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles WRs Travis Fulgham, Jalen Reagor, Alshon Jeffery, Greg Ward
After a solid run through October, Fulgham has disappeared. He had one catch on seven targets last week eight whole yards. His box score looked pretty much the same the week before that, except he was targeted five times.
Jalen Reagor was the most productive of the Eagles’ receivers last week. He caught four passes on five targets for 52 yards, the second week in a row he topped 45 yards. None of them found the end zone. Jeffery and Ward haven’t been doing enough to be in your fantasy lineup.
Reagor is probably the best of the bunch here, a low-end third receiver given the matchup.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Jalen Reagor. Sit the others.
