  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Five targets in defeat

    Watkins caught two of his five targets for 23 yards and rushed once for three yards in Sunday's 13-7 loss to the Giants.

    A week after putting up a goose egg on a season-low target count of one, Watkins was back up to a more standard workload Sunday. Unfortunately, it also translated to a fairly customary level of production, as the 23-year-old hasn't registered more than 33 yards in any of his past five games. He still played eight more snaps than Jalen Reagor's 45, however.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Doesn't factor into win

    Watkins did not catch his only target in Sunday's 40-29 win over the Saints.

    A week after setting a season high in catches, Watkins saw a season low in both receptions and targets. While he still played more than Jalen Reagor, neither wideout is likely to be able to produce consistently in what is increasingly a run-first offense in Philadelphia.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Logs season high in catches

    Watkins caught four of his six targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 30-13 win over the Broncos.

    Watkins saw more targets in this one than he had since Week 4, perhaps because Dallas Goedert (head) left with a possible concussion. The Southern Miss product still put up a lackluster yardage total, however, and has topped 50 yards just once this season -- back in Week 2. He could be in line for greater production if Goedert is forced to miss any time.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Two more catches in loss

    Watkins caught two of his three targets for nine yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Chargers.

    For the second straight game, the Eagles attempted fewer than 20 passes, with DeVonta Smith and Dallas Goedert each seeing six. That left mere scraps for Watkins, the ostensible third receiving option on the team. While he continued his streak of at least a pair of catches in every game this season, the nine yards were his fewest of the year.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Hauls in both targets

    Watkins caught each of his two targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 44-6 win over the Lions.

    Watkins has two or three catches in every game this season and continued that streak Sunday. He may see increased attention if Jalen Reagor (ankle) needs to miss time, however.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Two grabs in loss

    Watkins caught two of his four targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 33-22 loss to Las Vegas.

    Watkins didn't see a target until midway through the third quarter with the Eagles trailing by 23. He kept his streak of at least two catches in every game this season intact. Unfortunately, the 23-year-old has only topped 50 yards once this year, and that was back in Week 2.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Three catches in third straight

    Watkins caught three of his five targets for 44 yards in Thursday's 28-22 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Right now, it's clear that Watkins is ahead of Jalen Reagor (no catches on three targets) on the depth chart, at least when it comes to how Jalen Hurts sees it. While Reagor has played more snaps in every game but one this season, Watkins has generally produced equal or better numbers from game to game though neither has gone for more than 53 yards over the past four weeks.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Three catches in win

    Watkins caught all three of his targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 21-18 win over the Panthers.

    The 23-year-old continues to outproduce Jalen Reagor and even out-snapped him for the first time this season 52-43. Watkins has also seen a red-zone target in each of the past two weeks, while Reagor has none at all this year. Watkins is still tough to rely on, however, because he has only one game all season with more than three targets.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Upgrades to full activity

    Watkins (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

    Watkins looks to be in the clear for Sunday's game at Carolina after he took every rep during Thursday's session after being listed as a limited participant a day earlier. The second-year player has been a steady complementary presence in the Eagles' Jalen Hurts-led passing attack, totaling 10 receptions for 219 yards on 14 targets through the team's first four contests.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Limited with knee injury

    Watkins was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a knee injury, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

    The team's No. 3 receiver, Watkins has played between 48 and 66 percent of snaps in each game, including 58 percent Sunday, when he saw a season-high seven targets in a 42-30 loss to the Chiefs. With No. 2 receiver Jalen Reagor struggling, Watkins has a chance to move up the depth chart if he puts the knee injury behind him quickly. The Eagles face Carolina in Week 5.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Seven targets in loss

    Watkins caught three of his seven targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 42-30 loss to the Chiefs.

    The 2020 sixth-round pick doubled his target total for the season in the game, although he didn't have much to show for it at the end of the day. Still, he played 43 snaps (58 percent), just nine fewer than Jalen Reagor, who was pretty much invisible the whole contest. Through four games, Watkins has outproduced the Eagles' first-rounder from the same draft class as him, with Watkins delivering a 10-219 line compared to Reagor's 14-116.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Catches both targets in loss

    Watkins caught both of his two targets for 46 yards in Monday's 41-21 loss to Dallas.

    Watkins accounted for the Eagles' longest play of the day, fending off pass interference to record a 41-yard reception in the third quarter. His night could have looked a lot better in the box score, too, but he had two catches totaling 45 yards called back due to penalties. Watkins appears to be gaining traction in the offense; his snap share has climbed from 49 to 51 to 64 percent through the first three contests.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Long reception powers production

    Watkins recorded two receptions on two targets for 117 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the 49ers.

    Watkins saw only a pair of targets, but he made the most of them. His first reception came late in the first quarter and went for 26 yards. One drive later, he recorded a 91-yard reception that finished just shy of the end zone. Watkins has only five targets through two weeks, but it appears that the Eagles are intent on getting the ball in his hands at least a few times per contest.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Three catches in opener

    Watkins caught all three of his targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 32-6 win over Atlanta.

    Watkins drew the start and worked as the Eagles' third receiver in this one, showing the hype surrounding his preseason was legit. Oddly, however, all three of his catches came on the first three plays of the opening drive, and he wasn't targeted again despite the success. The 2020 sixth-round pick saw 34 snaps on offense -- two more than J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward combined -- and also served as the kick returner. Barring injury, the Southern Miss product will remain the fifth or sixth best receiving option in this offense going forward.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Working with starters

    Watkins has been part of the first-team offense in joint practices with the Jets this week, NJ.com's Chris Franklin reports.

    The 2020 sixth-round pick credits offseason work with Atlanta's Calvin Ridley for helping him improve as a route runner. Watkins' progress has been one of the biggest developments out of Philadelphia training camp, with the second-year pro now a real threat to push slot man Greg Ward out of the No. 3 receiver role. Watkins reportedly has been getting a lot of work from the slot, which is where he lined up when he took a screen pass 79 yards for a touchdown in the preseason opener against Pittsburgh.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Doesn't get on stat sheet Thursday

    Watkins failed to bring in his only target in the Eagles' 35-0 preseason loss to the Patriots on Thursday night.

    Watkins recorded a 79-yard touchdown grab in the Eagles' preseason opener against the Steelers, but he couldn't replicate that success Thursday. The second-year wideout is fighting to move up the Eagles' crowded receiver depth chart, but he'll likely need a strong showing in the preseason finale against the Jets on Friday, Aug. 27 to have a shot at the No. 5 receiver role he's vying for.
