Agholor caught four of his seven targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 38-20 loss to Minnesota.
The 26-year-old got another start but didn't register a catch until the final minute of the first half and led off the third quarter with his longest catch of the day, a 23-yarder. WIth Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson (abdomen) both out early in the season, Agholor had some impressive moments as the No. 1 receiver, but since Jeffery has returned he has just five catches and 11 targets for 62 yards over that last three games. With Jackson a possibility to play this week against Dallas, Agholor's days as a starter are very likely numbered.
Agholor is listed as active Sunday at Minnesota.
Although he was listed as limited on Friday's injury report with an illness, Agholor entered the weekend sans a designation for this game. With his status for Week 6 confirmed, he'll face off against a Vikings defense that has been stingy to opposing wideouts this season, giving up 10.3 yards per catch (third fewest in the NFL). Agholor's plight in 2019 has been an inconsistent number of targets, as he had 23 between Weeks 2 and 3 but just eight total in the Eagles' other three contests.
Agholor was limited at Friday's practice while dealing with an illness, but he doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game at Minnesota, PennLive.com's Daniel Gallen reports.
DeSean Jackson's continued absence with an abdominal injury theoretically could help Agholor see more targets, but it hasn't actually worked out that way for the veteran slot receiver since Alshon Jeffery returned from his own injury. Agholor caught just one pass for 20 yards on four targets the past two weeks, with Jeffery and tight end Zach Ertz doing the heavy lifting for Carson Wentz. A road matchup with the Minnesota defense isn't the best spot for fantasy production, regardless of Agholor's health or role.
Agholor caught one of three targets for 20 yards during Sunday's 31-6 win over the Jets. He also fumbled the ball out of bounds.
Agholor's primary action came in the third quarter when, facing third down, Carson Wentz connected with him short and the former Trojan did the rest, running for a 20-yard gain before being tackled out of bounds. Getting a read on Agholor is difficult; with the receiving corps dinged up in Weeks 2 and 3, he caught 16 passes for 157 yards and three scores. He has three catches for 31 yards in his other three games. Agholor seems unable to find a middle ground. Temper expectations ahead of a Week 6 matchup against Minnesota's sixth-ranked pass defense.
Agholor drew just one target but was unable to catch it in Thursday's 34-27 win over the Packers.
Agholor got another start with DeSean Jackson (abdomen) still sidelined, but with Alshon Jeffery healthy, he did not see anywhere near the same opportunity as his two-touchdown performance from Week 3. On the bright side for the 26-year-old, he did see the highest number of snaps among Eagles receivers with 56. If Jackson is still unable to go in Week 5, Agholor should rebound in a much more appealing matchup against the Jets.
Agholor brought in eight of 12 targets for 50 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' 27-24 loss to the Lions on Sunday. He also lost a fumble.
As expected, Agholor saw heavy volume with both Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin) out of action, and both his reception and target tallies comfortably qualified as team highs. The fifth-year wideout was able to salvage his fantasy line with a pair of second-half touchdown catches from 20 and two yards out, but he also committed an unforced fumble after a second-quarter reception at the Lions' 40-yard line. Agholor is in line for another pivotal role in Thursday's Week 4 tilt against the Packers with Jackson already ruled out, while the short turnaround could also result in Jeffery missing a second straight contest.
Agholor is poised to serve as the Eagles' No. 1 wide receiver Sunday versus the Lions with DeSean Jackson (abdomen) and Alshon Jeffery (calf) inactive, Chris McPherson of the team's official site reports.
Agholor will operate out of the slot while rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Mack Hollins work as outside receivers. After Jackson and Jeffery departed early Week 2, Agholor racked up 11 targets, turning them into eight catches for 107 yards and one touchdown. Agholor's primary competition for looks from Carson Wentz will be tight end Zach Ertz.
Coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that Agholor can be used to stretch defenses if DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is forced to miss any time, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
The Eagles lost both Jackson and Alshon Jeffery (calf) early during their Week 2 loss to the Falcons, putting Agholor in position to serve as the team's No. 1 wideout. The 2015 first-round pick managed to post a strong stat line despite dealing with drops, catching eight of 11 targets for 107 yards and a touchdown, and he could be in line for similar usage Week 3 versus Detroit. Though Agholor will likely operate behind Zach Ertz in any case, he'll certainly be worth fantasy consideration until Jeffery and Jackson retake the field.
Agholor caught eight passes (11 targets) for 107 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Falcons.
The Eagles lost both of their starting wideouts to injury early in this contest, and while Agholor (concussion) was sidelined temporarily, he was able to return and post a strong stat line. The status of Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (goin) are unclear, so Agholor could find himself in a starting role against the Lions in Week 3. The fifth-year wideout was barely used Week 1 (two catches for 11 yards) as the third receiver on the depth chart, so make sure that a starting role is certain later in the week before immediately plugging Agholor into a lineup.
Agholor was able to return to Sunday's game against the Falcons, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.
Agholor was being evaluated for a head injury but passed all necessary tests and is back in there. With the team's top two wide receivers out, Agholor is functioning as the de facto No. 1 wideout for the Eagles.
Agholor (undisclosed) had to go to the medical tent after taking a big hit late in the first half of Sunday's matchup against the Falcons, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Philadelphia can ill afford to lose Agholor, as both Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin) are already questionable to return due to their respective injuries. Agholor had two catches for 18 yards on four targets prior to getting hurt. His return is questionable at this point.
Agholor caught two of his five targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 32-27 win over Washington.
There wasn't much for Agholor to do with DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery hogging all the touchdowns and accounting for just shy of two-thirds of the team's passing yards on the day. Alas, such is the life of a No. 3 wide receiver, even in a loaded passing offense. Perhaps the good news here is that the 26-year-old played 60 snaps compared to 15 combined for Mack Hollins and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, so Agholor's job doesn't seem to be in jeopardy just yet as the Eagles head to Atlanta for Week 2.
Agholor caught one of his two targets for three yards in Thursday's preseason loss to the Ravens.
Agholor played 13 snaps total in what will likely be his last preseason appearance. After a good training camp, he'll start alongside Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Zach Ertz but likely won't contribute as much as any of them from a fantasy perspective. Second-round pick J.J. Arcega-Whiteside had a similarly impressive preseason and could also cut into Agholor's work as the season wears on.
Agholor (lower body) said he isn't worried about his contract, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "It's the final year of a contract, not the final year of my career," Agholor said. "That's my mind-set. I'm not concerned with it being Year 5, or fifth-year option."
Scheduled to make $9.4 million this season under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, Agholor is locked in as the Eagles' primary slot receiver but may find that the role entails fewer targets than it did the past two seasons. Between the additions of DeSean Jackson and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and continued growth from No. 2 tight end Dallas Goedert, the Eagles have no shortage of promising options in the passing game. Agholor at least seems healthy for training camp after missing part of the offseason program with an unspecified lower body injury.
Coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that Agholor (lower body) isn't participating in minicamp but is expected to be ready for training camp in July, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
The exact nature of Agholor's situation isn't clear, but the missed reps shouldn't be a huge problem for the 26-year-old, who's already well versed in Pederson's system. There will only be concern for his regular-season availability if Agholor's absence lingers into training camp. In the meantime, the Eagles have been giving Greg Ward most of the slot reps with the first-team offense, according to Brandon Lee Gowton of BGN Radio.
General manager Howie Roseman said his selection of wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside in the second round won't impact Agholor's future with the Eagles, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. "Nelson is an important part of our football team," Roseman said. "He's an important part of what we're trying to do. We're really excited to have him here."
Scheduled for a $9.4 million salary under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, Agholor has been the subject of trade rumors all offseason, though it isn't clear if the Eagles have seriously considered moving him. His wealth of experience from the slot and proficiency in the short passing game should allow for a meaningful role even after the team added Arcega-Whiteside to a position group that also includes Alshon Jeffery (ribs) and DeSean Jackson (Achilles). Health concerns likely are part of the equation, as Jeffery and Jackson have combined for 27 absences the past four years, both dealing with a number of different injuries. Of course, it's still possible the Eagles explore a trade for Agholor, who is unlikely to match his target volume from the past two seasons (95 and 97) if he sticks around in Philadelphia. It's easy enough to argue he'd be more valuable to another team.
Agholor may be available via trade ahead of Thursday's draft, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Agholor is scheduled to make $9.4 million in 2019 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract. The Eagles don't have an obvious replacement, but they can probably get away with a downgrade in the slot if Alshon Jeffery (ribs), DeSean Jackson (Achilles) and Zach Ertz (undisclosed) are all healthy. Although each of those three players finished out 2018 battling injuries, there hasn't been any suggestion their issues will impact participation in offseason practices.
Agholor's $9.4 million salary for the 2019 season became guaranteed Wednesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
The Eagles exercised the fifth-year option on Agholor's rookie contract last offseason, but the accompanying salary didn't lock in until Wednesday. While the $9.4 million is a significant commitment for a slot receiver, Agholor has been a solid offensive contributor for the Eagles both of the past two seasons and didn't miss a game in either campaign. With Golden Tate now a free agent, Agholor seems primed to supplement a quality Philadelphia receiving corps in 2019 that otherwise includes Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz and the recently acquired DeSean Jackson.
Agholor is likely to remain with the Eagles for 2019, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Between Agholor's non-guaranteed $9.38 million salary and the impending trade for DeSean Jackson, it's easy to see why there's been some discussion about the 2015 first-round pick getting released or traded. While there's still some chance he ends up elsewhere, Agholor would be a comfortable fit in the slot while Jackson and Alshon Jeffery (ribs) operate along the sidelines. The Eagles might consider a multi-year extension if they want to clear up some cap space without losing the 2015 first-round pick.
Agholor is due to earn $9.38 million in 2019 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.
With the option year guaranteed for injury only, the cap-strapped Eagles can reduce the $9.38 million hit with a multi-year extension, or remove it entirely with a trade/release. The team presumably will need to choose between Agholor and impending free agent Golden Tate, as it doesn't make sense to heavily invest in two wide receivers that are both at their best when working from the slot. The 25-year-old Agholor has youth and scheme familiarity working in his favor, while 30-year-old Tate has demonstrated a much higher ceiling with three 1,000-yard seasons. Regardless of how things play out, Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery will be first in line for targets in Philadelphia.
