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.
