Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor agreed to a four-year, $13.3 million deal Monday, July 20. The deal includes a fifth-year option.
Huddle Up: Reagor joins an aging receiving corps that has been injury riddled. He'll be a WR4 option with some upside.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor is expected to take his team physical Monday, July 20, in Philadelphia, according to a source, and sign his rookie contract.
Huddle Up: Reagor, Philly's first-round pick, could have some opportunity in his first season, particularly if veterans Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson continue to battle injuries. He's a WR4/5 with upside.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor has done 'really well' during virtual meetings with receivers coach Aaron Moorehead, according to Adam Caplan of the Inside the Birds podcast. Caplan went so far as to predict Reagor will 'not only lead the Eagles receivers in receptions but also in snaps (in 2020).'
Huddle Up: Considering the injury histories/concerns of DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery and Marquise Goodwin - Philadelphia's probable top three receivers - it is highly probable Reagor makes Caplan look clairvoyant. Regardless of whether the Eagles enjoy better injury luck at receiver, the rookie figures to be highly involved as a mismatch weapon and vertical threat. Reagor should be a solid fantasy WR4 with the upside to be a high-end WR3.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor will learn from veteran WR DeSean Jackson in 2020, according to head coach Doug Pederson Tuesday, June 16. 'He's going to come in and he's going to learn one position and he is going to learn from DeSean Jackson, and learn everything he can,' Pederson said. 'Obviously the playbook is extensive and we just have to see what he's taken from the offseason to training camp, and then once we see his potential and his growth, then we can use him in multiple spots.
'But one of the things that all of our receivers really have the capability of doing is moving inside, whether they are an outside guy going inside or an inside guy going outside. We'll keep him at one position to start and we'll grow from there.'
Huddle Up: It seems as though Reagor will be competing with Marquise Goodwin for targets as the No. 3 receiver behind Jackson and Alshon Jeffery. The rookie will be a late-round depth option in redraft leagues, but he'll have a higher value in dynasty and keeper formats as the young gun in an aging receiving corps.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor is expected to be used in a 'variety of roles' - including out of the slot - and similar to the way Nelson Agholor was deployed during his breakout 2017 campaign in which he tallied 62 catches for 768 yards and eight touchdowns, according to Geoff Mosher and Adam Caplan.
Huddle Up: This in no way suggests Reagor will match Agholor's production from three years ago, but it is clear Mosher and Caplan have been led to believe the rookie will be heavily involved in the offense right away. Reagor is a worthwhile flier at the end of redrafts this summer, but his value will be much higher in rookie drafts and in dynasty formats.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor impressed outside receivers coach Malcolm Kelly during his time at TCU. 'He is one of those rare players who can do it all,' Kelly said. 'He literally can do it all. ... He has that rare combination of explosion, high-point ability - at 5-10, he can go up and high-point the ball like a 6-3 or 6-4 guy - and the ability to turn nothing into something.'
Huddle Up: Reagor projects to be the Eagles' starting slot receiver with Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson lined up on the outside in 2020. He could quickly emerge as the team's top option behind TE Zach Ertz, especially with the extensive injury history of both Jeffery and Jackson. He may not have the highest upside of the 2020 rookie class, but he could be one of the first to make a sizable impact.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor received accurate passes on 30.7 percent of his snaps at TCU in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: One of the knocks on Reagor coming into the draft was his lack of production at TCU, but poor quarterback play was likely a factor. The Eagles believed in Reagor enough to spend a first-round pick on him, and he is going to be asked to add an explosive element to the passing game. He could be a worthwhile flier in the final rounds of drafts.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor was drafted to make the offense 'more explosive' after Philadelphia's quarterbacks averaged a league-low 6.46 yards per target when throwing to wide receivers in 2019, according to general manager Howie Roseman.
Huddle Up: Reagor should have an immediate role a deep threat in Philadelphia's passing attack, and while that might not translate into consistent fantasy production, the rookie should deliver some big plays. He's worth a flier in the final rounds of standard drafts, and he is even more appealing as a sleeper in best ball leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said the team feels rookie WR Jalen Reagor best fits into their offensive scheme, which is why they passed on other receivers in favor of him during the NFL Draft. The team needed speed on the outside, which Reagor brings to the table.
Huddle Up: Reagor will have an opportunity to be among the team's top three wideouts on Sundays this season. There may be some boom and bust along the way, but he's worth a look as a WR6 in the later rounds of your fantasy drafts.
