Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Invisible in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside did not draw a target in Sunday's 27-17 loss to Washington.

Arcega-Whiteside did not end up drawing the start in the opener as Jalen Reagor recovered from his shoulder injury in time to suit up. While the 23-year-old did see 28 offensive snaps in the contest, he didn't get a look from his quarterback while Reagor and fellow rookie John Hightower each got four. It may take another rash of injuries before Arcega-Whiteside begins to get meaningful opportunities in the Eagles offense in 2020.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Likely starting Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside likely will be the starting X receiver for Week 1 at Washington, NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

The 2019 second-round pick reportedly has shown significant progress in his second NFL training camp, building up a solid case for a role in the Philadelphia offense. Said role might've entailed rotating in as a backup, but it now appears more likely he'll start, with Jalen Reagor (shoulder) looking doubtful for the opener. While he probably won't be a target hog, the 6-foot-2 Arcega-Whitesides does offer a much different skill set than Z receiver DeSean Jackson and slot man Greg Ward, potentially lending to some volume in the red zone. The report does note that rookie fifth-round pick John Hightower also has been impressive in training camp, so it's possible the Eagles use a rotation of sorts.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Building chemistry with Wentz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has been throwing to Arcega-Whiteside on a regular basis during training camp, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Arcega-Whiteside apparently had another busy practice Thursday, after making a strong impression in the red zone the day prior. Eagles beat reporters seem to be in agreement that the second-year pro has taken a step forward since his brutal rookie season, but it sounds like Jalen Reagor, DeSean Jackson and some of the wideouts further down the depth chart also have been playing well. Meanwhile, Alshon Jeffery (foot) figures to miss at least the first few games of the season, potentially leaving JJAW as the only big-bodied wideout on the team. That won't necessarily equate to a top-three role, but it's at least looking like a possibility.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Confident heading into season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside claims he is "night and day different" from the player he was in 2019, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Arcega-Whiteside is looking to make up for lost time after a bust of a rookie season marred by injury and difficulty adapting to the speed of the pro game. However, he spent the offseason utilizing an extensive training regime and lost eight pounds of fat. The 23-year-old has been alternating reps at the 'X' position with 2020 first-rounder Jalen Reagor thus far in camp but will likely slot behind the rookie on the depth chart to begin the season.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Back to work Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside (lower body) was a full participant for Wednesday's practice, Daniel Gallen of Penn Live reports.

Arcega-Whiteside had been classified as day-to-day with the lower-body issue, but rejoined the team to get valuable practice reps. The Stanford product appears locked into a battle for playing time with Greg Ward and recent draft pick Jalen Reagor heading into the season. Arcega-Whiteside disappointed in his rookie campaign, catching 10 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown across 16 games.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Misses practice with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside is day to day with a lower-body injury, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports that DeSean Jackson, Jalen Reagor and Greg Ward are lining up with the first-team offense at Monday's practice. Meanwhile, Arcega-Whiteside is hoping to compete for the X receiver spot that's typically been occupied by Alshon Jeffery, who remains on the PUP list as he works his way back from major foot surgery. Following his poor rookie season, JJAW can't afford to miss much practice time if he wants a real shot at a Week 1 starting job.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Focusing on X role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside should be able to focus on the "X" receiver spot this year, Jimmy Kempski of reports.

The 2019 second-round pick was a huge disappointment as a rookie, catching only 10 passes on 486 offensive snaps. Arcega-Whiteside said nagging injuries were part of the problem, and he also mentioned the difficulty of moving around to different positions because of the more serious injuries his teammates suffered. He now should be able to focus on the X spot, which was occupied by Alshon Jeffery (foot) for the better part of the past three seasons. Jeffery is coming back from surgery and may not be ready for the season opener, but that doesn't mean Arcega-Whiteside will have anything given to him, as the Eagles also have rookie first-round pick Jalen Reagor and veteran speedster Marquise Goodwin as options to handle wideout snaps opposite DeSean Jackson. That said, coach Doug Pederson claims Reagor will start off learning the "Z" spot behind Jackson.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Facing heightened expectations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles GM Howie Roseman hopes Arcega-Whiteside can "take a big jump" in 2020, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

The Eagles' failure to add wideout talent early in the offseason has drawn criticism, prompting Roseman to tell reporters the following: "I don't feel like the cupboard is as bare as you're describing. Doesn't mean we're ready to roll there." One aspect of Roseman's logic is that Arcega-Whiteside is now fully healthy, whereas last offseason he entered the NFL with lower body injuries (something that wasn't reported publicly at the time). The young wideout dealt with heel, leg and foot ailments at various points throughout his rookie season, ultimately catching 10 passes on 486 offensive snaps. The Eagles are hoping for better health and better production from each of Arcega-Whiteside, DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery (if he isn't traded), but they also figure to use at least one early draft pick on a wide receiver. There's also time to add a veteran or two, though the top names on the free agent market have already signed elsewhere.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Fails to make impact in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside caught 10 of his 22 targets for 169 yards and a touchdown in 16 games in the 2019 season.

The Eagles famously suffered injury after injury to their receiving corps this season but still could not find a way to get their rookie second-round pick more involved. The 22-year-old saw just seven targets in the season's first three weeks before going six weeks without one. Thanks to attrition, he eventually got worked back into the game plan in the second half of the year but never hauled in more than two balls in a game and again went target-less in Philadelphia's final two contests of the season, including their wild-card loss. With Nelson Agholor likely to sign elsewhere next season, Arcega-Whiteside should get at least one more opportunity to produce in 2020.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside (foot) put in a full practice Friday.

Listed as a limited participant on the Eagles' practice reports Wednesday and Thursday, Arcega-Whiteside will be available for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Giants after closing out the week without any restrictions. With Nelson Agholor (knee) sidelined for yet another game, Greg Ward and Arcega-Whiteside will likely operate as the Eagles' top two wideouts, while Dallas Goedert steps in as the No. 1 tight end for the injured Zach Ertz (ribs/back).

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Logs limited workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside (foot) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Though Arcega-Whiteside has been listed as limited on both of the Eagles' Week 17 practice reports to date, coach Doug Pederson indicated earlier in the week that the rookie would be okay for Sunday's game against the Giants. With Pederson offering no indication that Arcega-Whiteside's condition has taken a turn for the worse, the main question is whether or not the wideout will carry an injury designation into the weekend. A final decision on Arcega-Whiteside's status will come shortly after Friday's practice.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside (foot) was a limited participant Wednesday in the team's estimated practice report.

Arcega-Whiteside picked up the injury during the Week 16 win over the Cowboys, though the issue is believed to minor. That the rookie was projected to put in a limited practice Wednesday is a positive sign for his availability Sunday against the Giants. With Nelson Agholor (knee) likely to remain sidelined this weekend, Arcega-Whiteside could retain a regular role in three-receiver sets.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Coach downplays injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said Arcega-Whiteside is expected to be OK after picking up a foot injury in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Cowboys, but the rookie will undergo additional tests Monday, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Based on Pederson's comments, Arcega-Whiteside's tests look to be mostly precautionary in nature, and the coach notably didn't even categorize the wideout as "day-to-day," as he often likes to do with the team's injured players. Arcega-Whiteside's practice time might still be limited, but assuming he's ready to go by the time the Eagles' Week 17 matchup with the Giants arrives, he should retain a regular role in three-receiver sets. The elevated playing time Arcega-Whiteside has gained of late hasn't meant much for fantasy purposes, as he's tallied only seven catches for 126 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets over the past five games.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Off to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside was spotted jogging into the Eagles' locker room with an undisclosed injury in the second half of Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Arcega-Whiteside was nursing a foot injury during the week, so perhaps his exit was related to that. He was in and out of the medical tent prior to leaving for the locker room, and Arcega-Whiteside's exit leaves the Eagles with just two healthy wide receivers.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Cleared for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside (foot) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's contest against the Cowboys.

The Eagles capped Arcega-Whiteside's practice reps both Thursday and Friday as he dealt with a foot injury. Still, coach Doug Pederson told Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger on Friday morning that Arcega-Whiteside was limited both days as a precautionary measure. With Arcega-Whiteside's status cleared up, he likely will be one of just three healthy wide receivers (also, Greg Ward and Robert Davis) available to the offense Sunday due to Nelson Agholor's (knee) questionable standing.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Should play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside (foot) is expected to play Sunday against the Cowboys, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The 22-year-old was limited at Thursday's practice due to the foot injury, but coach Doug Pederson said that was just a precautionary measure. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward may finish the season as the Eagles' top two wide receivers, with Alshon Jeffery (foot) already on injured reserve and Nelson Agholor (knee) potentially being shut down.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Tending to foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside (foot) was limited in practice Thursday.

And another bites the dust. The Eagles' receiving corps has been battered by injuries this season, with Arcega-Whiteside the latest member to be included on the practice report. With Alshon Jeffery (foot) and DeSean Jackson (abdomen) on injured reserve and Nelson Agholor (knee) still not able to practice, Greg Ward and Robert Davis are Philadelphia's only healthy wideouts at the moment.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: No catches in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside could not corral either of his two targets in Sunday's 37-27 win over Washington.

Arcega-Whiteside played 71 of 77 offensive snaps in the contest but was not a factor from a statistical standpoint. Among Eagles getting any targets, he saw the fewest while Greg Ward saw nine, turning them into seven catches for 61 yards and a score. Even with all the injuries to Philadelphia's wide receiver group, JJAW doesn't seem likely to provide much fantasy value over the final two weeks.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Set to act as No. 1 WR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside is expected to operate as the No. 1 wide receiver Sunday against the Redskins after the Eagles downgraded Nelson Agholor (knee) to out Saturday.

Season-ending injuries to Desean Jackson (abdomen) and Alshon Jeffery (foot) in addition to Agholor's aforementioned issue have opened the door for the rookie second-round pick to take on a critical role against a Redskins defense that sees each of its top three cornerbacks currently listed as questionable for Sunday. Arcega-Whiteside was less than impressive operating as the No. 1 wideout in the rain-soaked Monday night contest against the Giants in Week 14, but with just former practice-squad standouts Greg Ward and Robert Davis listed behind him on the depth chart, the 6-foot-2 big-bodied wideout might see enough volume by default to be a productive fantasy option.

Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: May be top outside receiver Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside is expected to start and could function as the Eagles' top outside receiver Sunday against the Redskins, EJ Smith of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Arcega-Whiteside's rookie season was expected to be a developmental one while a trio of established veterans (Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor) slotted ahead of him on the depth chart, but the second-round pick suddenly finds himself as the healthiest option of that quartet in Week 15. With Jeffery (foot) joining Jackson (abdomen) on injured reserve this week and Agholor (knee) listed as questionable for Sunday after failing to practice Wednesday through Friday, Arcega-Whiteside, Greg Ward and practice squad addition Robert Davis could all be in line for significant snaps this weekend. An elevated role won't necessarily translate to an abundance of targets for Arcega-Whiteside, however, as tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert remain Carson Wentz's most-trusted options and should rank as higher priorities in the passing game.
