Mack Hollins will likely be the No. 5 receiver for the Eagles this season, and he has minimal Fantasy value in most formats. He'll open the year behind Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, Nelson Agholor and rookie JJ Arcega-Whiteside, and it will likely take an injury to any of those guys for Hollins to see significant targets. He missed 2018 with a groin injury, but he should be healthy this season. That said, ignore him in most formats on Draft Day.
Hollins brought in one of two targets for five yards in the Eagles' 24-10 preseason win over the Jaguars on Thursday. Hollins struggled to make an impact Thursday, although he was playing with rookie Clayton Thorson under center. The 2017 fourth-round pick is projected to latch on to a roster spot as the fifth receiver. However, that's far from guaranteed, considering there's some quality competition for that spot in the form of Greg Ward, Jr., Marken Michel and Charles Johnson, all who've put together some impressive tape while playing in alternative North American pro football leagues over the last year.
Hollins (hip) is practicing Saturday but is still listed on the Eagles' pre-practice injury report, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Hollins missed time earlier this week with a hip injury but managed to participate in practice Saturday. The team evidently doesn't feel quite confident enough about his health, as Hollins is still listed as day-to-day according to the pre-practice injury report. The second-year receiver has put together a solid training camp to date, but it's unlikely Hollins will jump dramatically up the depth chart with Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor locked in as the top three receivers, and 2019 second-round pick J.J. Arcega-Whiteside also drawing rave reviews to start the preseason.
The lower-body injury that kept Hollins out of practice recently doesn't appear serious,Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Hollins had been having a good camp before feeling something Monday and being held out for the day. Domowitch speculates that while watching the 25-year-old catch passes off the JUGS machine later, the injury appeared to be to the left hamstring, although the player would not confirm. The North Carolina product expects to be back in practice within the next couple of days, however.
Hollins remained on the sideline at Monday's practice with a lower-body injury, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Hollins was able to practice Thursday through Saturday after missing the entirety of the 2018 season due to issues related to hernia surgery, but his current injury is apparently a separate issue. The 25-year-old still caught balls off the JUGS machine after practice and is considered day-to-day.
Hollins is likely to enter the season as the team's fifth receiver as long as he remains healthy, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Hollins just returned from a mysterious groin injury that sidelined him for 18 months, but he already has turned heads early in camp. The third-year receiver has even gotten some first-team reps and could contend with J.J. Arcega-Whiteside for fourth on the depth chart if the performance keeps up. Hollins caught 16 passes for 226 yards and a touchdown in his rookie 2017 season.
