Agholor caught one of three targets for nine yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.
While he didn't see as much work as in the opener, he still managed to find the end-zone. Yet with Carson Wentz attempting 46 passes on the day, the third-year receiver's fantasy owners have to be a little disappointed with the output. Perhaps of more concern is that rookie Mack Hollins saw an equal number of targets and connected on all three.
Agholor caught six of eight targets for 86 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 30-17 win over the Redskins.
Agholor started with a bang, connecting with Nelson Agholor for a 58-yard touchdown from a broken play on the team's first drive of the game. He struggled to generate much down the field thereafter but still led Eagles receivers in yardage by a comfortable margin. Agholor struggled to make a huge impact last season, but he appeared to be in sync with Carson Wentz in the season opener and will look to build on this performance next week against the Chiefs.
Agholor wasn't targeted in Thursday's preseason game against Miami.
According to Pro Football Focus, Agholor played 15 of his 19 offensive snaps while Carson Wentz was in the game, operating as Philadelphia's primary slot receiver. Snaps haven't led to targets for the 2015 first-round pick this preseason, with Agholor getting thrown at on just one of Carson Wentz's 23 pass attempts. Alshon Jeffery (nine targets) and Zach Ertz (four) unsurprisingly have been Wentz's favorite options, as will likely be the case during the regular season. Agholor won't likely see a major uptick in volume unless either Jeffery or Torrey Smith suffers a significant injury.
Agholor caught two of three targets for 28 yards in Thursday's preseason game against Buffalo.
Alshon Jeffery (five targets) and Torrey Smith (zero) got the start, with Agholor joining the fold when the Eagles used three-wide formations. While there's been talk of TE Trey Burton and RB Donnel Pumphrey handling some of the snaps vacated by Jordan Matthews, it at least seems Agholor has a chance to take on the bulk of that workload. Only one of Agholor's targets in Thursday's contest came from Wentz, as the third-year wideout got playing time deep into the second quarter with the second-team offense.
Eagles coach Doug Pederson and offensive coordinator Frank Reich suggested that tight end Trey Burton, wide receiver Mack Hollins and running backs Darren Sproles and Donnel Pumphrey could push Agholor for playing time in the slot, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
The Eagles' decision to trade Jordan Matthews (chest) may have been interpreted as a vote of confidence in Agholor, who's been the subject of positive media reviews throughout the offseason and into training camp. Reich acknowledged that the team's plan to replace Matthews will start with Agholor, but the offensive coordinator also made it clear the Eagles have plenty of other options to take snaps from the slot. The decision to trade Matthews may have been inspired by the wealth of options more so than the team's confidence in any one of those players.
