The Eagles will release Alshon Jeffery at the start of the new league year, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Jeffery was obviously a key part of the Eagles’ Super Bowl LII team, but he has struggled with injuries since then and will be another veteran released as Philadelphia enters a new era. The big-bodied wideout (who turned 31 last week) could have a resurgence in a new city, but it would be a surprise if he started 2021 with anything more than touchdown-dependent fantasy value.
Alson Jeffery is officially inactive for the Eagles.
The Eagles are apparently just resting Jeffery for the final game of the season, so rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts and the rest of the team are pretty shorthanded tonight as they look to keep Washington out of the postseason. Jeffery's year ends with six receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown in seven games. The numbers obviously weren't great, but the veteran receiver showed some life when Hurts got into the lineup over the final stretch of the season.
Alshon Jeffery (calf) was officially a full participant in today's practice.
As Eagles head coach Doug Pederson indicated earlier today, Jeffery is finally expected to make his 2020 season debut this Sunday against the Giants. It's a mystery as to why Jeffery was not on injured reserve when he missed the first eight games of the season, but anyway it looks like he'll be on the field for Philadelphia for Week 10. Jeffery has upside, particularly in the red zone, but he's probably more of a deeper-league pickup for now.
Alshon Jeffery (calf) has been ruled out for Week 8.
Jeffery hasn't seemed particularly close to making his season debut, and knowing the mystery that often surrounds injury issues in Philadelphia, there is no guarantee he will be ready to go following the Week 9 bye.
Alshon Jeffery (calf) officially did not practice today.
It appears to be just the calf that's giving Alshon issues, and it's difficult to see him making his season debut this Sunday night. Consider the big receiver week-to-week, but hopefully he can get back on the practice field soon. Also keep in mind that the trade deadline is looming next week, and Jeffery has been long rumored as a potential trade candidate.
Alshon Jeffery (foot) is officially out for Thursday night.
It remains a mystery as to why the Eagles did not place Alshon on injured reserve to start the season. This is his seventh consecutive missed game to open the year.
Alshon Jeffery (foot) has been ruled out for Week 6.
It continues to be a mystery as to why Jeffery was not placed on injured reserve at the beginning of the season, but nevertheless the big receiver will miss his sixth consecutive game to start the year.
Alson Jeffery (foot) remains limited in practice.
It'd be good to see Jeffery get up to a full practice before giving him a great chance to make his season debut. Jeffery would probably do well to be listed as questionable tomorrow.
Alshon Jeffery (foot) officially remains limited in practice.
There was hope that Jeffery would be able to make his season debut last week before an illness struck him, but a limited practice today indicates that the big receiver is still not quite at 100% yet. Ideally, Jeffery will be able to become a full practice participant by Friday.
Alshon Jeffery will not play in Week 5.
It sounds like the Eagles were hoping Jeffery would be able to make his season debut this weekend, but an illness has forced him to miss practice yesterday and today, so head coach Doug Pederson ruled him out for Sunday. We expect Jeffery will get on the field soon, and he's someone worth considering for a bench pickup given the state of Philadelphia's receiving corps.
Alshon Jeffery (illness) did not practice on Thursday.
The veteran being listed with an illness on the injury report as he nears return from a foot injury is certainly interesting, but at the point it would probably be a surprise if he made his season debut on Sunday. Jeffery is worth stashing if you have an open IR spot.
Alson Jeffery (foot) was officially limited in today's practice.
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was relatively optimistic about Jeffery's chances of making his season debut this Sunday, but the big receiver's situation remains up in the air. It's still odd that the Eagles did not put Jeffery on injured reserve, as we are going onto Week 5 (and the minimum for an IR stay is just three weeks this season).
Alshon Jeffery (foot) will not play in Week 3.
While Jeffery was able to get back on the practice field yesterday, the big receiver is not ready to make his 2020 season debut yet. The good news is Jeffery is making progress, so hopefully he's able to play in the next couple of weeks.
Alshon Jeffery (foot) was a limited participant in practice on Thursday.
The veteran wideout isn't expected to return to game action until next month, but this participation suggests it could be early next month, especially considering the Eagles didn't place him on IR. When he's back, Jeffery will immediately step in as a starter and could realistically be Philly's No. 1 receiver before long with Jalen Reagor (thumb) out for several weeks and DeSean Jackson not showing much so far. He's worth stashing in all formats if you have an IR spot or room on the bench; we'll see what Alshon's status is on tomorrow's injury report.
Alshon Jeffery (foot) has officially been ruled out for Week 1.
This was the full expectation for Alshon. The big receiver should be considered week-to-week.
The Eagles have activated Alshon Jeffery (foot) from the PUP list.
Philadelphia has been widely speculated as trying to trade away Jeffery, and the team now has seven receivers on their initial 53-man roster with Jeffery activated. He's an interesting player, as he has been productive when he's been on the field for the Eagles, but the big receiver has been thought of (and some believe apparently leaked by the team itself) as the player responsible for leaking negative information about quarterback Carson Wentz. It's easier to roster Jeffery if you have IR spots in your fantasy league, but he'll likely go undrafted in most standard-sized leagues.
The Eagles have placed Alshon Jeffery (foot) on the Active/PUP list.
Jeffery is not expected to be healthy for the regular season opener, and he will be a candidate to be placed on the regular season PUP list—which would keep him out for the first six games. 2019 second-round pick J.J. Arcega-Whiteside should have a good opportunity to earn a starting job alongside DeSean Jackson and rookie Jalen Reagor.
Alshon Jeffery is dealing with a Lisfranc injury, according to multiple reports.
This explains the non-contact injury suffered on Monday night that sent Jeffery to injured reserve this morning. Jeffery might undergo surgery for the injury, but he's fully expected to be ready to go for the start of the 2020 season. It would be a surprise if he's not ready to hit the field by training camp.
The Eagles have placed Alshon Jeffery (foot) on injured reserve.
It is still unclear what kind of injury Jeffery is dealing with exactly, but he's done for the rest of the season, and Philadelphia is now even thinner at receiver. In ten games this year, Jeffery caught 43 passes for 490 yards and four touchdowns, but injuries have really piled up for him, and the veteran wideout will turn 30 in a couple of months. Alshon is on the books for the next two seasons, though, so the Eagles are in a tough position and may need to get creative to upgrade their receiving corps.
Alshon Jeffery (foot) officially did not practice today.
The Eagles continue to call Jeffery’s injury a “foot”, which is probably a good sign; but the big receiver is looking unlikely for Week 15. We’ll track his status throughout the week after today's practice estimation.
Alshon Jeffery (foot) has been ruled out for the rest of tonight.
The Eagles ruled Jeffery out to start the second half, which isn't a surprise after he left early in the game with a non-contact injury. The team is saying this is a foot injury for Jeffery, so hopefully that is indeed what it is instead of an Achilles injury. More information should become available tonight or tomorrow.
Alshon Jeffery (foot) is officially questionable to return against the Giants.
This injury being called a foot injury is probably good news, but it still look unlikely that Jeffery is able to return tonight. We'll update you as more information becomes available on his status.
Alshon Jeffery gets carted off against the Giants.
Just as he was starting to run a route, Jeffery suffered a non-contact injury that looks a lot like a potential Achilles injury. The veteran receiver was clearly frustrated after hobbling off the field to get carted to the locker room, and it would be a surprise if he's able to return to tonight's game. Hopefully this injury isn't as bad as it looks, but the Eagles are now without both Jeffery and Nelson Agholor (knee, inactive) tonight against the Giants.
Alshon Jeffery goes for 9/137/1 line in return to the lineup.
It felt like a big game was coming for Jeffery against a beatable Miami secondary, and that's what happened for what turned out to be a high-scoring, 37-31 loss. Jeffery looked healthy and should be a difference-maker down the stretch with games against the Giants (twice), Redskins, and Cowboys over the final four weeks.
Alshon Jeffery isn't listed on the injury report for Week 13.
The thought was that Jeffery would be questionable with an ankle injury, but he's good to go for Sunday's matchup against the Dolphins. While there are legitimate concerns about Philly's passing attack right now, this weekend feels like it could be a blowup spot, so Alshon is worth inserting right back into lineups as a low-end WR2/FLEX option.
Alshon Jeffery (ankle) was officially a limited participant in today’s practice.
The thought was that Jeffery would be a full participant today, but he’s not quite there yet. Jeffery was reportedly cleared but did not play this week, so it’s an interesting situation the big receiver is in on a team he’s been widely speculated as an anonymous source in voicing discomfort with Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. We’ll let you know how Jeffery is listed on Friday.
Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is officially inactive against the Seahawks.
It seemed like Jeffery was trending in the right direction after he was able to practice on a limited basis throughout the week, but the ankle isn’t where it needs to be for today’s Week 12 game. This is the second consecutive missed game for the big receiver. With Nelson Agholor (knee) also out for the Eagles, Carson Wentz’s top receivers are Jordan Matthews, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Mack Hollins, and Greg Ward.
Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday.
Jeffery was able to log a week of limited practices, and he’s said to be headed in the right direction to play Sunday versus the Seahawks. We expect that the big receiver will play, but check back at 11:30 AM ET on gameday for his official game status.
Alshon Jeffery (ankle) was officially limited in today’s practice.
Jeffery has been limited in each of the past two days, and he appears to have a decent chance to return to the field after missing last Sunday against the Patriots. We’ll let you know how the big receiver is listed on the final Week 12 injury report when it’s released tomorrow.
Alshon Jeffery (ankle) was limited in today's practice.
Jeffery returning would be a huge boost for the Eagles in a crucial game versus Seattle, so getting a limited participation in is at least a good start to the week. However, Alshon is still very questionable for Sunday, and we might not know his status until the weekend.
Alshon Jeffery (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Week 11.
Jeffery didn't practice all week after hurting his injury in the Bears game from Week 9, and he's been ruled out ahead of Sunday's big game against the Patriots. This makes the Eagles more shorthanded against an elite defense, and it might lead to New England putting All-Pro cornerback Stephon Gilmore on tight end Zach Ertz while doubling receiver Nelson Agholor. Jeffery's injury makes Carson Wentz an even worse play for Week 11.
Alshon Jeffery (ankle) officially did not practice today.
Two straight missed practices to start the week obviously isn't a good sign, but hopefully Jeffery is able to hit the practice field tomorrow. We'll update you with his official game status for Week 11 when it's released sometime tomorrow.
Alshon Jeffery (ankle) officially did not practice today.
An ankle injury popped up after the Bears’ game, and it’s not a good sign that Jeffery isn't ready to practice following the bye. We’ll track Jeffery’s status over the next couple of days leading up to the final Week 11 injury report being released on Friday.
Alshon Jeffery is off the Week 4 injury report.
Jeffery is officially ready to go tomorrow night after missing one game with his calf injury. The big receiver also missed most of Week 2 after injuring the calf early against the Falcons, so this will be his first extensive action since the season opener. Jeffery is a FLEX option for Week 4, and you'll be hoping a Thursday night shootout breaks out in Lambeau if you're inserting him into your fantasy lineup.
Alshon Jeffery (calf) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice.
The injury report was again an estimation with the Eagles just having a walkthrough, but this is still a good sign for Jeffery's status. While the big-bodied receiver would carry some risk as a potential decoy or part-time player, his scoring upside should make him a top-30 option at the position if he plays.
Alshon Jeffery (calf) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's injury report.
It's just an estimation for Philadelphia (they play the Packers on a short week), but it's still a good sign for Jeffery's status, which seems to be trending in the right direction. Fortunately, fantasy owners will have a definitive answer on Thursday night and can set their lineup from there.
Alshon Jeffery (calf) is officially inactive for the Eagles.
A report emerged that the Eagles were optimistic Jeffery could play today against the Lions, but it’s not surprising that he’s out after missing practice all week with the calf injury. Keep in mind the Eagles have a short week for Week 4 as they play on Thursday night, so at least there might be optimism that he can suit up in a few days.
Alshon Jeffery (calf) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday.
Jeffery missed practice again today and did not practice all week, but the Eagles are still hoping he's able to suit up against the Lions in a couple of days. We'd say he's on the doubtful side of things, but his status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday. Nelson Agholor looks poised to be Philadelphia's top wide receiver in Week 3.
Alshon Jeffery (calf) did not practice on Wednesday.
The injury report is an estimate because Philadelphia surprisingly had a walkthrough instead of an actual practice, which shows how banged-up the team is. Jeffery seems to be on the wrong side of questionable for Week 3, but hopefully he can at least get in a limited session over the next two days to have a shot at suiting up.
Alshon Jeffery (calf) did not return to tonight’s game.
Jeffery stood on the sideline in pads without his helmet for much of the night, and he had no catches during his brief time in the game. For now, consider Jeffery 50/50 for next Sunday against the Lions.
Alshon Jeffery (calf) is officially questionable to return against the Falcons.
It was surprising to see Jeffery standing one the sideline for Philadelphia's recent series, and this explains it. It's unclear when Jeffery was hurt, but we'll update you if he's able to return for tonight's game or is ruled out for the rest of the night.
Alshon Jeffery, Eagles lose a heartbreaker in the Divisional Round.
Jeffery caught five-of-eight targets for 63 yards, but the final offensive play of the game—and perhaps the final play for Nick Foles' career as an Eagle—bounced right off Alshon's hands, resulting in a Marshon Lattimore interception. The big-bodied wideout was clearly sick about the result, but hopefully the disappointment fuels him for 2019 and beyond. Unfortunately for his fantasy prospects, Carson Wentz is fully expected to be Philly's starting quarterback next season, so Sunday was likely his final chance to connect with the gunslinging Foles.
Alshon Jeffery leads the Eagles in receiving in playoff victory.
Jeffery caught six passes for 82 yards in the Wild Card Round win against his former Bears team. The big receiver made key catches throughout the game, including a first-down catch to give his team a new set of downs to set up a goal-to-go situation before the game-winning score. Jeffery nearly caught the potential game-winner on an out route, but then Golden Tate scored anyway to pick him up. Next week against the Saints will be a tough matchup for Jeffery in the Divisional Round, but Nick Foles will give him opportunities to make plays. Jeffery was held to 33 yards in his first matchup against New Orleans this season.
Alshon Jeffery scores against the Redskins.
Jeffery caught five passes for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 17 win over Washington. The score was a nice catch in contested coverage in the end zone. Jeffery's regular season ends with 65 receptions for 843 yards and six touchdowns in 13 games, but he's really heated up as of late with Nick Foles under-center, putting up lines of 8/160/0, 3/82/0 and 5/59/1 heading into the postseason. Jeffery faces his former Bears team in the Wild Card Round this Sunday evening.
Alshon Jeffery catches three passes in Eagles' win.
Jeffery gained 82 yards on his three Week 16 receptions against the Texans, including a 52-yard reception. Nick Foles again gave his big receiver opportunities to make plays down the field, and the two connected on a key reception for a first down on the game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter. This was a strong showing for Jeffery, especially with Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz each going over 100 yards. Next up, Jeffery faces a Redskins team that limited him to 31 yards earlier this season, but Foles isn't going to shy away from giving him chances to make plays no matter who (potentially Josh Norman) is covering him.
Alshon Jeffery goes off against the Rams.
Jeffery caught all eight targets in the Eagles' Week 15 victory, gaining a season-high 150 yards on his eight receptions. He had to contend with Rams cornerback Aqib Talib throughout the night, but Nick Foles gave him opportunities to make plays even if he was well covered; Jeffery ensured he didn't regret it by making play after play in the big win. Jeffery's long reception in the game was a 50-yarder when he and Nelson Agholor were somehow wide-open behind a defense that fell asleep. As expected, Foles' presence under-center is a big boost to Jeffery's fantasy value, and he has major upside next week against a Texans secondary with some smaller players. Jeffery looks like a strong option for fantasy finals.
Alshon Jeffery scores in Week 14 loss.
Jeffery caught six passes for 50 yards, including a two-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter. The big-bodied wideout ended up leading the team in all receiving categories including targets (nine) as Zach Ertz was blanketed, but he isn't suddenly back on the WR2 map. Next week, the Eagles will need to score, though, so perhaps Jeffery can get the better of a matchup with Aqib Talib and the Rams.
Alshon Jeffery catches three passes in Week 13.
Jeffery gained 31 yards on his three receptions against the Redskins. He was targeted on an interception in the red zone, as Carson Wentz probably locked on and forced it to him in an effort to get his big receiver more involved. Jeffery has now gone five straight games with less than 50 receiving yards and has no touchdowns in that span, and he gets a tough matchup against a Cowboys team that shut him down in their first matchup. Jeffery is just a FLEX option for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
Alshon Jeffery catches three passes in Week 12.
Jeffery gained 39 yards on his three receptions against the Giants, and he was surprisingly targeted just three times in the game. This makes it four straight games under 50 yards for the big receiver, who next faces a Redskins team that held him under 40 yards in each of their two matchups last season. However, Carson Wentz might look Jeffery's way more given the lack of big games lately.
Alshon Jeffery catches four passes against the Saints.
Jeffery gained 33 yards on his four receptions (five targets) in the Week 11 loss. You could see Jeffery getting visibly frustrated toward the end of the game, as he and Carson Wentz have just been unable to connect the past three games. Next week against the Giants is a good bounce back spot after he scored twice against them earlier this season.
Alshon Jeffery catches four passes in Week 10.
Jeffery gained 48 yards on his four receptions against the Cowboys. It was a tough matchup for the big receiver, but nearly 50 yards wasn't bad on a night where he didn't have a great game. Jeffery will look to have a bigger performance in Week 11 against the Saints, and he remains a strong option in fantasy lineups.
Alshon Jeffery catches four passes against the Jaguars.
Matched up with cornerback Jalen Ramsey for much of the game, Jeffery gained 35 yards on his four receptions in the Eagles' Week 10 win. Jeffery probably could've have a touchdown on a slant route in the end zone if Carson Wentz would have put the ball up for him to get over the underneath coverage, but Wentz didn't seem to look his way. Jeffery will look to have a bigger game when the Eagles return from their bye week to face the Cowboys.
Alshon Jeffery caught seven passes for 88 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.
Jeffery was able to find the end zone from 11 yards away in the first quarter to get Philly started as they jumped out to a 17-0 lead, but Carolina ended up scoring 21 unanswered points to win 21-17. The Eagles had a chance to win the game and worked their way into Panthers territory with under a minute to go, but the big mistake of the game came on Carson Wentz's forced throw to Jeffery in double coverage that fell incomplete, as Wendell Smallwood was wide open in the flat for an easy completion/conversion; Wentz fumbled on the team's final offensive play. The matchup is tough next week in London against the Jaguars, but Jeffery and Zach Ertz have been locked onto by their quarterback, so the big-bodied receiver remains on the WR2 map.
Alshon Jeffery scores twice in Week 6.
Jeffery started the scoring for the Eagles, making himself available on a Carson Wentz scramble, with Wentz hitting him on a perfect throw in the end zone. Later in the game, Jeffery was the recipient of a quick screen at the goal line for his second score. Overall, he had eight receptions (on 12 targets) for 74 yards and two touchdowns. The Eagles featured Jeffery, and Wentz looked his way plenty—including on a couple of RPOs—which led to an excellent performance. He also had a drop on a deep out, but it wasn't an easy catch with the ball slightly over his head in wet conditions. Jeffery will remain a good option in fantasy lineups in Week 7 against the Panthers.
Alshon Jeffery struggles in loss to the Vikings.
Jeffery had the tough task of matching up with All-Pro cornerback Xavier Rhodes for the afternoon, and he was able to make a couple of key catches; but he also had a couple of key drops in the comeback effort. Overall, Jeffery caught two-of-eight targets for 39 yards. Jeffery should find more room to navigate in Week 6 against the Giants.
Alshon Jeffery impresses in season debut, but Eagles fall to Titans, 26-23.
After sitting out the first three games of the season as he recovered from shoulder surgery, Jeffery returned to catch eight receptions for 105 yards and one touchdown, which came on a jump ball from 16 yards away in the third quarter. Alshon was apparently questionable on Sunday morning with an illness more than the shoulder, but he looked great and is immediately back on the WR2 radar. Next week, Jeffery gets a Vikings defense that just allowed all three Rams receivers to go for 100+ yards and a score, and he caught five passes for 85 yards and two touchdowns against them in January.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder/illness) is officially active for Week 4.
Jeffery missed the first three games of the season after offseason shoulder surgery, and he missed practices this week because of an illness, but he’s in the lineup and ready to go for the Eagles. Consider Jeffery a riskier FLEX option this week, as it’s his first game back and the Titans have one of the league’s best cornerback groups.
Alshon Jeffery (illness, shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday.
Jeffery progressed to a full practice participant earlier in the week, but an illness impacted things and could potentially keep him out of this week's game against the Titans if the team doesn't feel he's gotten enough full reps in practice yet. We think Jeffery will be ready to go, though, and the Eagles play at 1:00 PM ET, so his status will be known by noon on Sunday.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) has been cleared for contact.
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson just made the announcement, but he said he's not sure if Jeffery will play on Sunday. However, after Jeffery was limited in practice for a few weeks and was presumably able to get acclimated to running around and catching passes, we expect he'll be ready to go against the Titans. If Jeffery is somehow available in your league, he's worth an immediate pickup. Expectations should probably be tempered in a spread-the-wealth passing attack, though, especially in his first game back. Jeffery will have a difficult matchup against the cornerback trio of the Titans if he does play in Week 4.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is inactive for Week 3.
Jeffery is clearly close to a return, as he continues to practice on a limited basis and was listed as questionable for today’s game. However, he’s still not fully cleared for contact and is out against the Colts. Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz could both get double-digit targets in Carson Wentz’s return. Jeffery should have a good shot to play in Week 4.
Eagles list Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) as questionable for Week 3.
Jeffery has yet to be cleared for contact, but the team is holding out hope that he might play on Sunday against the Colts. Jeffery was ruled out on Friday ahead of the team's Week 2 game, so there seems to be a legit shot that he'll play. However, we expect Jeffery to sit another game, and he'd be difficult to trust in his first game back if he does play—especially while considering the depth at WR.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) remains limited in practice.
Jeffery is unlikely to play this Sunday against the Colts, but he continues to work himself back into game shape. He might be declared out ahead of the weekend tomorrow.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) remains limited in practice.
Jeffery is still awaiting full clearance after offseason shoulder surgery, and he's probably on the doubtful side of things to play this week. We'll update you with his practice status when its released tomorrow.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is officially out for Week 2.
Jeffery practiced on a limited basis this week, but he was fully expected to miss this game against the Bucs. Jeffery needs to get cleared for contact before he can return to game action, so consider him week-to-week for now. He might have a shot to play in Week 3.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) remains limited in practice.
Jeffery continues to work his way back from his offseason shoulder surgery, and two practices in a row is a good sign. Jeffery might ultimately be ruled out tomorrow when the official injury report for the game is released, though.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) gets in limited practice.
Jeffery is thought to be unavailable for this weekend against the Buccaneers, but perhaps he could make a push to play. Either way, it's a good sign that he's on the practice field as he works back from offseason shoulder surgery. He'll be working himself back into game shape in the coming days. Jeffery is worth a bench hold until he returns.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is a few weeks away from returning.
Jenny Vrentas of Sports Illustrated says she asked Jeffery if his return was still a few weeks away, and he nodded. Jeffery said "Some days I feel great, and some days... a shoulder injury is pretty tough." This is not ideal, as it sounds like the shoulder could be giving him some issues despite hope that he'd be ready for Week 1. But the good news is that Philadelphia is taking things slow with both him and Carson Wentz, so Jeffery should be 100% and ready to go when he does return to the field.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is officially listed as out for tomorrow night's season opener.
This was fully expected, as Jeffery is expected to miss at least Week 2 as well. Nelson Agholor will be Philadelphia's No. 1 wide receiver against Atlanta, and Zach Ertz should get plenty of targets in the game. Jeffery is certainly worth keeping on the bench (or an IR spot if you have them in your league) until he returns.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) has passed his physical and is off the PUP list.
This was the expectation, and Doug Peterson indicated as much last night. This means Jeffery won’t miss the first six games of the season, though fantasy owners should probably still brace for him to miss at least the first couple weeks. In the meantime, Nelson Agholor, Zach Ertz, and Dallas Goedert should be the main beneficiaries from Alshon’s probable absence. Jeffery is going as a borderline top-30 wideout in fantasy drafts.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is expected to miss the first two games of the regular season, according to ESPN.
Jeffery is still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and apparently will not be ready for the season opener next Thursday night. There was thought that Jeffery would be ready to go for Week 1 despite missing the entire preseason, but that was probably an aggressive timeline. ESPN says Jeffery isn’t expected to be placed on the PUP, which would force him to miss the first six games of the season. Perhaps Jeffery will return earlier or later, but for now expect him to be back in Week 3 against the Colts.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) might not be ready for the season opener, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Rapoport says Jeffery's recovery from offseason shoulder surgery is "progressing according to plan," but then says there's a chance Jeffery remains on the PUP to start the season. The thought has been that Jeffery would miss the entire preseason but would be ready for the opener, but it's certainly no lock—and this report indicates that. Jeffery remains someone to keep an eye on as the regular season approaches. As he remains out, Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor will continue to be the focus of the passing attack throughout camp and the preseason. Situations like this are why fantasy owner should attempt to have their fantasy drafts late if possible.
The Eagles have officially placed Alshon Jeffery on the PUP to start training camp.
Jeffery just had shoulder surgery on a torn rotator cuff in February, and this was fully expected. There's talk of Jeffery potentially missing the entire preseason, but we'll see if he gets to 100% sometime this summer—though the Eagles should not rush Jeffery back into action, and they probably won't. While Jeffery is out during camp and the preseason, the other Eagles receivers will get more reps and should become more comfortable in the offense. Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace, and Mack Hollins are likely to get most of the first-team work with Jeffery out.
Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) could miss the entire preseason.
ESPN's Josina Anderson, who was the one that first reported Jeffery's one-year deal with the Eagles last offseason, says Jeffery is "out at least 6 months" and is "very likely" to miss the preseason. Anderson added her source says it's not 100%, but the expectation is for Jeffery to be ready for Week 1 in September. Obviously, missing training camp and the entire preseason would be a concern, and Jeffery might take some time to knock off the rust if he does indeed miss all that time. After he played through the injury all season, Jeffery is likely to push hard to get back for the start of 2018. He'll be someone to monitor all summer, and his absence could mean a bigger role for Nelson Agholor.
Alshon Jeffery had surgery on a torn rotator cuff this morning, according to Ian Rapoport.
If you remember from the preseason, Jeffery dealt with the shoulder issue that forced him to miss a chunk of time, and it turns out the issue was a torn rotator cuff. Jeffery did have a relatively slow start for some parts of early in the season, and he might have had to adjust playing while dealing with the serious injury. The Pro Bowl receiver certainly didn't show any affects while dealing with it during the playoff run and Super Bowl, though, and he was already handed a big contract during the season to remain with the Eagles. Looking ahead to next season, Jeffery should be 100% and has 1,000-yard and 10-touchdown upside after having a 57/789/9 line in 2017.
Alshon Jeffery helps propel Eagles to Super Bowl LII victory with big first half.
Jeffery caught three-of-eight targets for 73 yards and one touchdown, which came from 34 yards out in the first quarter on a sensational high-point catch in the end zone over cornerback Eric Rowe. Alshon was shut down over the final 30 minutes when Stephon Gilmore followed him around more, but he was still targeted in key situations, including in the red zone. Overall, Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles did a great job of at least giving his big-bodied receiver a chance all game. Jeffery will probably be drafted as a WR2 next summer in fantasy drafts with the hopes that he will take a statistical leap in his second year with the Eagles.
Alshon Jeffery scores twice as Eagles advance to Super Bowl LII.
Philadelphia's big-time offseason acquisition came up big with a Super Bowl berth on the line, catching all five targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns versus the Vikings. All-Pro cornerback Xavier Rhodes was matched up with Jeffery for much of the day, but the big receiver took advantage when Rhodes briefly left the game with a toe injury, beating Terrance Newman deep down the field for a 53-yard touchdown on a double move. Later, Jeffery scored in the red zone against zone coverage. When he was still with the Bears after last season, the big receiver predicted his team would win the Super Bowl. Well it won't come with Chicago, but he'll have a chance to win with the Eagles in two weeks.
Alshon Jeffery leads the Eagles in receiving in playoff win.
Jeffery was targeted five times by Nick Foles, catching four passes for 61 yards. The big receiver came up clutch at the end of the half with a reception at the sideline with one second remaining to set up a 53-yard field goal. And late in the game he had a couple of key catches on run-pass options. Jeffery should be a lock for another five-plus targets in the NFC Championship next weekend.
Alshon Jeffery catches one pass in Week 17.
Jeffery gained eight yards on his lone reception, as he barely played in the game. The great news is that he made it through all 16 games this regular season, something he hadn't done in his last two seasons with the Bears. Jeffery had 57 receptions for 789 yards and nine touchdowns on the year, and he'll look to make a big impact in the playoffs.
Alshon Jeffery held without a catch in Week 16 win.
Jeffery was shadowed by Sean Smith and couldn't get out of the tall corner's shadow. Philly's big-ticket acquisition was targeted just twice, as Nick Foles mostly used Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor, and the running backs on his 38 pass attempts. The Eagles might sit Jeffery in Week 17 with the #1 seed locked up, but perhaps they want the offense to get some continuity heading into the postseason.
Alshon Jeffery scores in Eagles' win.
Jeffery was targeted a team-high ten times in Nick Foles' first game as the starter this season, catching four passes for 49 yards and a touchdown. The score was on a great catch at the back of the end zone on a dime from Foles, as the ball was placed in a perfect spot and Jeffery did an excellent job of keeping both feet in bounds. While it's possible Oakland's bigger corners present some issues for Jeffery in Week 16, he's still a fine option in fantasy lineups on Christmas night.
Alshon Jeffery makes key touchdown catch in Week 14 win.
Jeffery battled with Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson for much of the afternoon, and he caught five passes for 52 yards and a touchdown in the game. The touchdown was on a spectacular catch in the end zone, as he made himself available on fourth-and-goal and went down to wrap his hands around the ball before it could touch the ground. Unfortunately, it was Carson Wentz's last throw of the game before leaving with his knee injury. Without Wentz, Jeffery's fantasy value will probably take a hit, but he's still a starting option next week against the Giants.
Alshon Jeffery caught four passes for 61 yards in Sunday's loss to Seattle.
Signed to a 52-million-dollar contract earlier in the week, Jeffery made some plays but was also struggling to gain separation at times with Byron Maxwell and Shaquill Griffin on him. Alshon should be a focus of Wade Phillips' defense next Sunday, but he remains a WR2 option. Hopefully Nelson Agholor's play will open things up.
The Eagles have signed Alshon Jeffery to a four-year contract extension.
In the midst of a great season for the team, Philadelphia has decided to lock up their big receiver they just signed to a one-year deal this offseason. For Jeffery, his decision to take a chance on a short-term deal has worked out, as he’s in an ideal situation with a quarterback that should be good for a long time. According to multiple reports, Jeffery will make $52 million over the course of the four-year extension (including $27 million guaranteed), and it keeps him with the team through the 2021 season. Jeffery and quarterback Carson Wentz have been clicking lately, and they should be in the mix for around 8-10 touchdowns each season as long as they remain together.
Alshon Jeffery scores against former team.
This was Jeffery's first game against the Bears, who he spent the first five years of his career with, and it was a good one. Jeffery caught five of nine targets for 52 yards and a touchdown in another Eagles win, with the touchdown coming on a pass near the end zone where he easily got behind zone coverage and caught a lofted pass from Carson Wentz. This makes four straight games with a touchdown for Jeffery, and he remains a solid option in fantasy lineups for Week 13 against Seattle.
Alshon Jeffery scores in Week 11.
Jeffery continues his great pace as of late, as this is now four touchdowns in the last three games for the big receiver. He was targeted a team-high seven times against the Cowboys, catching four passes for 67 yards and a touchdown in the Sunday night victory. The touchdown came on a nice diving catch at the goal line for 17 yards, and Carson Wentz obviously trusts him to make plays. Jeffery will be a good option against the Bears in Week 12.
Alshon Jeffery is officially active tonight against the Cowboys.
Jeffery said he expected to play while the team was optimistic, and now he's officially in the lineup. Though he started to get hot entering the Eagles' Week 10 bye, consider Jeffery a FLEX option for tonight.
Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is officially questionable for Week 11.
The ankle issue is something Eagles head coach Doug Pederson says Jeffery has been dealing with for a while now, but Pederson is "optimistic" Jeffery will be out there on Sunday night abasing the Cowboys. Jeffery himself said yesterday that he'll play, so you should feel pretty good about his status for the game. However, with the game being on Sunday night, you'll need to make sure you have someone else ready to insert into your lineup in case Jeffery is inactive. And it's worth noting tight end Zach Ertz was expected to play in Week 9 against the Broncos, but he was ruled out despite the optimism surrounding his status.
Alshon Jeffery (ankle) was limited in practice today.
Jeffery probably tweaked his ankle either in yesterday's practice or today's, but hopefully it's not too bad. We'll keep an eye on his practice status tomorrow—and perhaps more important, the official injury report for the game—but expect Jeffery to be ready to go on Sunday night.
Alshon Jeffery scores twice against the Broncos.
In what on paper might've been his toughest matchup of the year, Jeffery had his best game as an Eagle so far, catching six of 11 targets for 84 yards and two touchdowns. The first touchdown was on a zone read run-pass option where Carson Wentz kept the ball and then threw it to a streaking Jeffery down the sideline after he got by a flat-footed Aqib Talib. The second touchdown was on a crossing route in the end zone where Jeffery beat Talib again. Jeffery will look to keep things going after the Eagles' Week 10 bye.
Alshon Jeffery finally makes big play in Week 8 win.
Jeffery caught two passes for 62 yards, with the highlight being a 53-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter where he out-jumped the cornerback and got free down the right sideline to twist into the end zone. Even with the big play, through eight games, Jeffery is being outplayed by Nelson Agholor on more targets, as he's on pace for just 56 receptions for 832 yards and six touchdowns. He should be on the bench against Denver in Week 9.
Alshon Jeffery gets team-high six targets against the Redskins.
Jeffery was targeted down the field by Carson Wentz a few times, but he couldn't take advantage with a huge night—even with top Redskins cornerback Josh Norman out. Jefferey caught two passes for 37 yards in a solid game, it just wasn't the type of numbers his fantasy owners would have liked. It seems Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor are clearly the top two targets for the Eagles, but Jeffery has a chance at some big numbers against a beatable 49ers secondary next week.
Alshon Jeffery leads Eagles in Week 6 receiving.
Jeffery received a team-high ten target against the Panthers, catching four of them for 71 yards. He was probably targeted deep in this game more than any previous game this season, and his long gain was of 37 yards. Facing a Redskins team that might be without Josh Norman (ribs) in Week 7, Jeffery should be a good fantasy option.
Alshon Jeffery the latest to be held in check by Patrick Peterson, but Eagles easily beat Cardinals.
Jeffery caught three passes for 31 yards, as besides a 16-yard reception where Peterson inexplicably missed on a press, he couldn't do much against the superstar corner. Fortunately, he didn't need to with the rest of the Eagles dominating. Alshon should be better on Thursday night against the Panthers. He's a quality WR2.
Alshon Jeffery scores in Week 4.
Jeffery caught three passes (on six targets) for 29 yards and a touchdown against the Chargers, with the score coming on a slant route where his big frame came into play. Through four games, Jeffery is on pace for 68 receptions for 860 yards and eight touchdowns. While he should improve in the receptions and yardage department, it wouldn't be that surprising if he doesn't. Zach Ertz looks to be locked in as the top target for Carson Wentz.
Alshon Jeffery catches clutch pass at end of Eagles' win.
Jeffery caught four of eight targets for 56 yards against the Giants, with his best play coming on a 19-yard reception on an out route with one second left, which set up a game-winning 61-yard field goal by rookie kicker Jake Elliott. He could've had a much bigger day, but Carson Wentz overthrew him on a deep ball where Jeffery had a few yards of separation. The big receiver plays the Chargers next week in what probably won't be an easy matchup, but he does have a size advantage on Chargers corner Casey Hayward.
Alshon Jeffery scores against the Chiefs in Week 2.
Jeffery took advantage of not being matched up with Marcus Peters for much of the day, catching seven of a team-high 13 targets for 92 yards and a touchdown. The touchdown was on a back-shoulder type of route from the slot where Jeffery caught it on the ground but was not touched, so he rolled into the end zone for his first score as an Eagle. Fantasy owners that trusted him in a potentially tough matchup on paper were rewarded with a very good game form Jeffery. He faces the Giants and their tough corners next Sunday.
Alshon Jeffery doesn't do much in Week 1.
The big Eagles receiver had a difficult matchup against Josh Norman and the Redskins, but he was still targeted seven times by Carson Wentz, catching three of them for 38 yards. He was given a couple of jump ball opportunities, including one in the end zone and one on a deep pass down the field late in the game. Jeffery has another difficult matchup in Week 2 against Marcus Peters and the Chiefs, but Wentz obviously wants to look his big receiver's way and will give him chances to make plays this season.
Alshon Jeffery catches touchdown in Week 3 of the preseason.
Jeffery and the Eagles starters played for a quarter in the exhibition against the Dolphins. The big receiver caught two passes for 35 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown on a slant route to cap the day for the starters. The Eagles have been soft on their free agent acquisition, so the former Bears receiver is certainly not going to play in the final preseason game next week. Jeffery looks like he's going to get targeted a lot this season, so his current ADP in the top 40 is fair.
Alshon Jeffery plays in first preseason game as an Eagle.
The big receiver was targeted a lot in his limited action, catching two-of-five targets for 23 yards. Quarterback Carson Wentz, who just lost his most trusted receiver Jordan Matthews to a trade, might be looking Jeffery's way a lot this season. Wentz forced an end zone fade into double coverage to him, but it was out of bounds. The Eagles have taken things slow/soft with Jeffery through the preseason, but he should get a good amount of playing time in the third preseason game next Thursday.
Alshon Jeffery is likely to play in Thursday's preseason game.
The Eagles have used kid gloves with their number one receiver, but head coach Doug Pederson indicated he will probably play in the team's second preseason game this Thursday. With the way the team is treating him, expect Jeffery to play for only a series or two in the game.
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said Alshon Jeffery's shoulder is "fine."
Pederson said his receiver will play in the team's first preseason game on Thursday, but Jeffery didn't practice again for what Pederson said was a "rest day." A little odd to give someone a rest day when they haven't practiced since Saturday, but it is what it is. Jeffery needs to get his timing with quarterback Carson Wentz heading into the season.
Alshon Jeffery isn't practicing for the second straight day.
He's dealing with a shoulder injury, but the Eagles don't sound too concerned. Eagles head coach Doug Peterson implied yesterday he was just giving Jeffery a day off as the team had a padded practice with full hitting. The big free agent acquisition is expected to be the team's number one receiver, and getting reps with quarterback Carson Wentz is important.
The Eagles receivers are in North Dakota to work out with Carson Wentz.
Multiple reports say all the team's receivers are in the second-year quarterback's hometown to workout before training camp. It's great to see these guys take the trip up to North Dakota because they want to get better. For a team trying to have a breakout season, these player-scheduled workouts are a positive step in that direction. For fantasy purposes, this has to be seen as a positive. Alshon Jeffery is on a one-year deal and is likely to be the number one guy this season, but Nelson Agholor is a deep sleeper candidate as he enters his third season. Jeffery's ADP is currently around the end of the third round in fantasy drafts.
Eagles receivers coach Mike Groh thinks Alshon Jeffery might have had his best offseason since 2013.
According to Tim McManus, Groh said he is "pleased" with Jeffery's spring performance and that the big receiver is "in a good place" physically and mentally. Groh coached Jeffery from 2013-2015 with the Bears and oversaw his two best years in the NFL. Jeffery hasn't topped 1,000 yards in either of the last two seasons, in part because of battling injuries and suspension, both of which caused him to miss games. If he can stay healthy, the Eagles' number one receiver should easily reach 1,000 yards this season. He has a decent amount of upside in 2017 fantasy drafts.
Albert Breer reports the Eagles coaches are impressed with receiver Alshon Jeffery.
Jeffery is reportedly in shape and was decribes as a "freak." It would be concerning if things like this weren't being said about the new weapon for Carson Wentz. Jeffery needs to stay healthy and stay in shape this season. If he does, he could put up some big numbers in a contract year.
Alshon Jeffery, Eagles agree to one-year deal for $14 million, according to Josina Anderson.
Anderson seemed to have the scoop all along when she tweeted that Jeffery was leaning towards Philly earlier today. It's surprising that Jeffery is settling on a one-year deal, so he must not have been liking the long-term offers he was receiving. It is understandable after he was suspended in 2016, though, and he will try to prove himself before hitting the open market again in 2018. Jeffery will be on the WR1/WR2 borderline as Carson Wentz' number one target in what expects to be an emerging offense, and this is an obvious downgrade for Jordan Matthews and newest-Eagle Torrey Smith.
The Vikings have emerged as a contender for Alshon Jeffery, according to Ian Rapoport.
This is a bit of a surprise with Minnesota spending a first round pick on Laquon Treadwell in 2016, who profiles similarly to Jeffery. Perhaps they are just trying to drive the price up for their division-rival Bears, but if they truly want him, this shows again that Minnesota is likely to employ a big-time spread attack in 2017 with Sam Bradford at the helm.
Alshon Jeffery is leaning towards signing with the Eagles, according to Josina Anderson.
The Eagles already signed Torrey Smith today, and it looks like they want to totally revamp their receiving corps by adding Jeffery. The Eagles will need to do some cap navigation if they're going to sign Jeffery, but they would do so if he tells them he wants to play in Philly.
Ian Rapoport reports that the Colts and Eagles are "making a strong push" to sign WR Alshon Jeffery.
There haven't been any other reports of this, but Rapoport has been accurate with his reporting over the last couple days. He also reports the Bears are still talking to Jeffery. The Colts are a new team in the mix, and kind of a surprise, if true; they have T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, and Phillip Dorsett already, but perhaps they are not happy with Dorsett in the starting lineup. A signing of Jeffery would give the Colts a very deep wide receiving corps, for sure.
Appearing on Adam Schefter's podcast, "Know Them From Adam," Alshon Jeffery said he would "love to win a championship in the city of Chicago."
After the season, Jeffery did say the Bears would win the Super Bowl next season. If nothing else, he seems to be a loyal guy, but he might not be back in Chicago if they don't offer him what he believes he's worth. Jeffery's situation will probably be one that is settled by the end of the weekend. The Titans, Eagles, and 49ers have been most linked to Jeffery aside from the Bears.
Josina Anderson reports the 49ers, Titans, and Eagles could be teams interested in wide receiver Alshon Jeffery.
Anderson also notes the Bears are still a possibility. Wherever he goes, Jefferey is going to get paid big time as the top receiver on the market.
Multiple reports: Bears will not franchise tag receiver Alshon Jeffery.
It looks like Jeffery will hit the open market and he is going to get paid a ton. Jeffery did say the Bears are going to win the Super Bowl next season, so it's fair to say he may want to return to Chicago. It might be in his agent's hands at this point.
Alshon Jeffery held to one catch in season finale.
It went for 10 yards. Alshon finishes the season with 52 catches for 821 yards and two touchdowns despite being suspended for four games. He said the Bears are winning the Super Bowl next season, but it's no sure thing that he would even be a part of that prophecy. It will be interesting to see where Jeffery lands for 2017.
Alshon Jeffery catches five passes for 92 yards against the Redskins.
Jeffery has been a great option since returning from his suspension, and will look to keep things going to conclude the season against the Vikings in what could be his final game with the Bears.
Alshon Jeffery had six catches for 89 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Packers.
In his return from suspension, Jeffery was held out of the box score for the first three quarters, but did a lot of damage in the fourth as the Bears played from behind. Alshon has a chance at production over the final two weeks with Matt Barkley playing well, but he has a tough matchup with Josh Norman next Saturday on Christmas Eve.
Alshon Jeffery was suspended four games for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.
This is a surprising one. Jeffery will miss Weeks 11, 12, 13, and 14. He wasn't making a huge fantasy impact anyway, but fantasy owners will not have him for the next four. He's worth keeping on your roster for a playoff run. We recommend that you NOT drop Jeffery. When he returns, Cutler will still look his way. This is a misstep for Jeffery while playing on the franchise tag. He will likely hit the open market this offseason.
Jeffery had four catches for 47 yards against the Buccaneers in Week 10.
In a contract year (franchise tag) Jeffery has not made the impact some expected. He is averaging 15.8 yards per catch, but has only topped 100 yards once and has only one touchdown. He will still be a decent WR2 next week against the Giants.
