Philadelphia Eagles WR Greg Ward Jr. had three receptions for 10 yards against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Nov. 1.
Huddle Up: Ward was targeted five times, third on the team, but his three grabs covered just 10 yards. With the emergence of Travis Fulgham and the return of Jalen Reagor, Ward's time as a viable source of fantasy value may have run out.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Greg Ward Jr. tallied five receptions, 42 yards and a touchdown against the New York Giants in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Ward was third on the team in targets with six and has definitely taken a backseat to Travis Fulgham recently, but the second-year pro is reliable target for Carson Wentz on underneath routes. The lack of yardage undercuts Ward in standard leagues, but he carries some fringe value in PPR formats.

Philadelphia WR Greg Ward Jr. caught four of his five targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in a 38-29 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Injuries have forced Ward into a prominent role in the passing game, but he has finished with less than 40 receiving yards in four of the five games. He has scored in two of the last three contests, giving him fringe flex potential until the Philadelphia receiving corps returns to full strength.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Greg Ward Jr. had four receptions for 38 yards against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4. He was targeted seven times.
Huddle Up: Ward's seven targets easily led the club, and even though it was Travis Fulgham that made the big catch Ward is the only healthy receiver in Philly that warrants consideration for a roster spot. He'll face a rested Steelers squad in Week 5.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Greg Ward Jr. registered team highs with eight catches, 72 yards and 11 targets while also scoring a touchdown in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Ward entered with just six catches for 36 yards and no scores in the first two games, including just a five-yard catch last week. He needs to perform with a little more consistency before fantasy owners can trust him regularly outside of the deepest leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Greg Ward Jr. registered five receptions for 31 yards on seven targets in Week 1 against the Washington Football Team.
Huddle Up: Ward led the team's wide receivers in receptions while tying for the position high in targets. That's an important situation to watch, as he could be relevant across the board for fantasy purposes if he continues to keep the eye of Carson Wentz. The Eagles host the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Greg Ward Jr. likely will have a good chance to win the slot receiver job if the rookie receivers need time to develop, in the opinion of The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.
Huddle Up: Ward was one of the top receivers for the Eagles during the last month of the season because of the injuries to the other receivers. Fantasy players should monitor the situation during training camp to see how Ward will be used in the offense. Ward probably would see a handful of targets each game if he is the slot receiver but would not be a starting option in fantasy leagues.
