What to do with Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward in Week 17 of the fantasy football playoffs

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Jalen Reagor, and Greg Ward ahead of the Eagles Week 17 matchup against Washington.

DeSean Jackson will be out this week, while Jalen Reagor and Greg Ward will again lead the team in snap counts. Over the last two weeks, with Jalen Hurts securely the starter, Reagor and Zach Ertz have seen the most targets by a good margin. What can we expect from him and the other wide receivers on Sunday Night Football? Let’s break it down below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles WRs Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward

Last week against the Cowboys, Jackson had an 81 yard touchdown, but that was his only target. Greg Ward Jr. had two receptions (three targets) for 27 yards and Jalen Reagor had three receptions (eight targets) for 30 yards. Ward does have three touchdowns in his last four games while Regaor’s only touchdown came n Week 8.

The Eagles don’t have anything to play for, so we could see more Quez Watkins, John Hightower and Travis Fulgham, but I would expect Reagor and Ward to lead the way no matter. Those two are the only wide receivers with fantasy appeal, but they do face a Washington team that has been tough on receivers, as they’ve allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to the position.
