Philadelphia Eagles WR John Hightower (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 2, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Hightower is in line for a significant role in the passing game since DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery and JJ Arcega-Whiteside not expected to play. He should be a handful of targets during the game but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR John Hightower (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Hightower still has a chance to play this week depending on how he recovers from the illness. He has a chance to have a significant role against the San Francisco 49ers with DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery and JJ Arcega-Whiteside missing practice. Fantasy players should be able to find better options and can avoid Hightower.

Philadelphia Eagles WR John Hightower looks like a receiver who can play on Day 1, according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer. McLane cites the difficulties the Eagles defensive backs have had containing Hightower in one-on-one drills.
Huddle Up: The fifth-round pick of the 2020 NFL Draft was mentioned alongside Eagles first-round pick Jalen Reagor as someone who could have a role in Week 1. He likely won't be an early-season option in standard 12-team leagues, but he could be a target in dynasty leagues or deeper redraft leagues.
