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.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Greg Ward Jr. caught four passes for 71 yards in Week 16 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Free-agent WRs Charles Johnson (AAF) and Greg Ward (AAF) signed one-year deals with the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday, April 9.
Huddle Up: Johnson, the fortmer Vikings wideout, will garner some fantasy sleeper attention after leading the AAF with 45 receptions for 687 yards and five TDs in eight games, but he's joining a crowded Philly pass-catching corps which already includes Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor and newly-signed DeSean Jackson. Be wary until we see more tangible signs that Johnson might have a sustainable role with the Eagles.
