Jeffery notched 56 of the Eagles' 62 offensive snaps during Thursday's 28-23 win at Carolina. Jeffery's workload was the most significant of any Eagles' skill-position player not named Carson Wentz, resulting in a team-high 10 targets and 71 receiving yards. While he wasn't on the other end of Wentz's three touchdowns, Jeffery ranks a close second to Zach Ertz (two TDs on Thursday) in terms of targets on the season (53 versus 48). As a result, Jeffery should get in the end zone again in due time due to his career TD rate of 8.5 percent.
Jeffery hauled in four of 10 targets for 71 yards in Thursday's 28-23 win over the Panthers. Jeffery bounced back from a 31-yard afternoon in Week 5, although he was far from efficient from a catch rate standpoint. The veteran wideout did see double-digit targets for the second time this season, even as he's still in search of his first 100-yard game. Jeffery had been bedeviled by some tough cornerback matchups prior to Thursday, and still has the Redskins' Josh Norman and either Aqib Talib or Chris Harris, Jr. of the Broncos on the docket before the end of October. However, he clearly is one of Carson Wentz's favorite targets, essentially ensuring he should continue seeing plenty of volume each week. He'll look to help the Eagles prevail in an important divisional matchup against the Redskins in Week 7.
Jeffery nabbed three of four targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 34-7 win over Arizona. While the rest of the Eagles offense went off -- a barrage that included long touchdowns by Nelson Agholor and Torrey Smith -- Jeffery was mostly quiet. Seen as the big addition to Philly's receiving corps in the offseason, Jeffery hasn't had a corresponding impact. Aside from Week 2's loss to Kansas City, Jeffery has been held to under 60 yards in every other game. Outside of perhaps Zach Ertz, Jeffery is still Philly's top target, but it's not fair to expect the veteran wideout to get the same kind of exposure in Philadelphia as he had in Chicago, considering the Eagles simply have a greater collection of targets than the Bears had in recent years.
Jeffery caught three of six targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-24 win over the Chargers. Jeffery scored from eight yards out on the opening drive and was quiet for the rest of the afternoon. A matchup with Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward limited Jeffery's volume, though he still managed a respectable 19.4 percent target share. Jeffery hasn't caught any breaks in terms of individual matchups this season, and it won't be any different Week 5 against Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals.
Jeffery caught four of eight targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Giants. Jeffery was the most targeted Eagles wideout on the day, but he was relatively quiet as he drew some attention from Janoris Jenkins. He still managed to come up with one of the biggest plays of the game, however, hauling in a 19-yard completion to set up the winning 61-yard field goal by Jake Elliott as time expired. Jeffery still seems to be growing into his role on a new team, but he should remain a key component of the offense next week against the Chargers.
