Agholor caught five of seven targets for 83 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Cowboys. Zach Ertz's huge day overshadowed all of the Eagles wideouts, but Agholor did finish tops among all receivers in yardage. Trade deadline acquisition Golden Tate (two catches for 14 yards) was quiet in his debut, but he figures to have a bigger presence as he gets more familiar with his new playbook and teammates. For now, Agholor is still the starting wideout opposite Alshon Jeffery, which could be the ideal position Sunday against the Saints in the event the latter draws the attention of shutdown corner Marshon Lattimore.
The Eagles are hopeful the recent addition of Golden Tate will create more open looks for Agholor, Graham Foley of the Eagles' official site reports. In recent weeks, Agholor has worked as the Eagles' primary slot man, a role he primarily filled during his breakout 2017 campaign. Agholor hasn't noticed much of a production boost while shifting back to the position, but that could change with Tate in the fold, at least on a per-target basis. While Tate primarily worked in the slot during his time in Detroit, his ability to play all three receiver positions should allow Agholor to stick in the spot where he's more comfortable. And though Tate's presence may result in Agholor dropping down a spot in the pass-catching hierarchy, the attention the latter commands could result in more high-quality looks for Agholor when he is in fact targeted.
Agholor caught three of six targets for 49 yards and gained 14 more yards on his lone carry in Sunday's 24-18 win over the Jaguars. While the six targets tied Zach Ertz for the team high on the day, Jordan Matthews and Alshon Jeffery each saw five, and only Matthews gained over 50 yards through the air in the contest. The 25-year-old has seen between four and seven looks in each of his last four games, but this performance was his second best over that span in terms of yards. In eight games, however, the USC product is well ahead of his 2017 pace with 41 receptions already this season; he just hasn't gotten in the end zone as he did during the Eagles' Super Bowl run of a season ago.
Agholor caught six of seven targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 21-17 loss to Carolina. It was a strange game for Agholor, as his six catches represent his third-best total of the season while the yardage total is a season low. Word that the Eagles were in on Amari Cooper prior to his being sent to the Cowboys certainly doesn't bode well for Agholor, who has struggled to produce consistently behind Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery this season. Adding another receiver to the fold would likely reduce the USC product's volume and value even further going forward. For now, though, the 25-year-old has a pretty decent floor in PPR leagues as he has at least four catches in all but one game this year.
Agholor brought in three of five targets for 91 yards in the Eagles' 34-13 win over the Giants on Thursday. Agholor hadn't logged a YPC figure of greater than 11.3 prior to Thursday, and he'd been stuck in single digits twice. That changed in a significant way versus the Giants, largely due to a 58-yard catch that served as a game-long reception. The fourth-year receiver's volume has been hard to trust this season, as he's now received either four or five looks in three of his past four games. There's only so much to go around when one shares the field with the likes of Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz, but Agholor's big-play capabilities and effectiveness at varying depths of target figure to keep him relevant in an Eagles offense that relies heavily on the pass. He'll look to improve on his season-best yardage figure against the Panthers in Week 7.
