In the Eagles last two games, we’ve seen both Jalen Reagor and Greg Ward featured more in the passing game and making plays when given the opportunity. Can they create big plays against a less than stellar Cowboys’ secondary this week? Let’s break it down below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles WRs Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward

Last week against the Cardinals, Greg Ward Jr. was one of two Eagles wide receivers to score a touchdown. Ward had four receptions (five targets) for 15 yards and two touchdowns. Despite the low yardage total, he still managed to score a season-high 13.5 fantasy points.

As for Reagor, he was targeted early and often by Jalen Hurts last Sunday. The rookie wide receiver had five receptions (eight targets) for 49 yards. But unlike Ward, Reagor only scored 3.9 fantasy points, which does not inspire confidence that he is worth starting in fantasy this week.

That being said, the Eagles are going up against a Cowboys’ secondary that is susceptible to giving up big passing plays through the air. In their last three games, Dallas has allowed five receiving touchdowns.
