Following a disappointing rookie campaign, Jalen Reagor is off to a promising start for the Philadelphia Eagles. His six catches for 49 yards is definitely something to build on ahead of a Week 2 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles WR Jalen Reagor

The Eagles finished 4-11-1 a year ago, and much of the flak landed on the No. 21 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. It’s well documented that Reagor has been viewing this season as an opportunity to prove his talent, and ultimately how valuable he can be for this offense.

Reagor caught every pass that was thrown his way last Sunday. The only question is, how much will Smith’s presence on the field affect Reagor’s fantasy production?
