Jeffery caught four of five passes for 33 yards during Sunday's 48-7 loss to the Saints.
In his first four games after returning from a shoulder injury, Jeffery averaged six catches on 10 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown per game. In his three games since, he's averaging four catches on six targets for 39 yards per game and no scores. Something is going on in Philly as the Eagles try to find their identity amid an array of off-season coaching departures and in-season injuries. Jeffery can certainly dominate in green, we saw it just a few weeks ago, but that hasn't been happening lately. Next up is a Giants defense against which Jeffery nabbed eight passes, two of them scores, in Week 6.
Jeffery caught four passes (eight targets) for 48 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to Dallas.
Tight end Zach Ertz stole the show from a receiving standpoint (14 catches for 151 yards and two scores), but it is worth noting that Jeffery still led all Philly wideouts with eight targets despite the debut of Golden Tate (four targets). The 28-year-old is the least-explosive of the starting receiver trio, but his strong hands and solid target share keep him in the conversation in most fantasy formats despite a couple of quiet games. Jeffery will look to bounce back in a contest against the Saints on Sunday that will probably carry one of the higher over/unders in Week 11.
While Jeffery may lose out on a few targets with the addition of Tate, the added firepower should help open things up for the Eagles offense, perhaps translating to more big plays and efficiency. Though Tate may need some time to get comfortable with the new playbook and establish a rapport with quarterback Carson Wentz, he'll benefit from the Eagles being on bye in Week 9. If Tate settles in quickly and provides the upgrade to the team's receiving corps that Philadelphia is banking on, Jeffery's steady production to date could climb to greater heights. In his five appearances this season, Jeffery has recorded 29 receptions for 341 yards and four scores.
Jeffery caught four of five targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 24-18 win over the Jaguars.
Jeffery had a predictably tough day against the Jaguars' stout secondary, turning in his lowest yardage total of the five games he's played this season. As a result, Carson Wentz spread the ball around more, targeting three other pass-catchers as much or more than the 28-year-old. Nevertheless, Jeffery had seen at least eight targets in each of his four games entering the contest to go with four touchdowns on the year and will continue to be a high-volume wide receiver at home against Dallas after the upcoming Week 9 bye.
Jeffery caught seven of 10 targets for 88 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 21-17 loss to the Panthers.
Jeffery had a productive day against an undersized Panthers secondary, finishing behind only Zach Ertz in targets, catches and receiving yardage. He got his team on the board with an 11-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter, giving him four through four games this season. Jeffery was shut down a couple of weeks ago against the Vikings, but he's been excellent in his other three outings, averaging 7.7 catches and 89 yards per game to go along with the four scores. He'll look to build on another strong effort next Sunday against the Jaguars.
