Fantasy Football 2017: Philadelphia Eagles depth chart | Green Bay Packers and NFL – Philadelphia Eagles News

WR1: Alshon Jeffery — The Eagles’ best fantasy option is Jeffery. Well, he has the most potential. Remember 2013-14? A healthy Jeffery had 174 catches for 2,554 yards and 17 touchdowns in those seasons. In 2015, he battled several injuries. In ’16, he served a four-game PEDs suspension. The talent is all still there, it’s just a question of if Jeffery can stay on the field and establish a rapport with Wentz. He should be the top target and he has WR1 talent, but he’s an WR2/3 as we wait to see how he fits and if Wentz is improved. / WR2: Jordan Matthews — In his three NFL seasons, Matthews has been solid, just not spectacular. His numbers went down in ’16 as he missed two games (73-804-3 after 8 TDs in each of his first two seasons). Matthews has the route running, size and speed to be a formidable target. He needs to be more consistent week-in and week-out, but at 25, Matthews still has upside and can come on the cheap in fantasy. / WR3: Torrey Smith — Here’s the good — Smith is only 28, has great speed and should get deep-ball opportunities (17.0 yards per catch in his career) with the big-armed Wentz. The bad? He had only 53 catches in 28 games with the 49ers the past two seasons and his 65-1,128 season in ’13 was a long time ago. (H. Rick Bamman – hbamman@shawmedia.com)
