Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside (foot) should be fine for the Week 17 game even though he suffered a foot injury in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Arcega-Whiteside has been targeted at least five times in only one game this season and likely will not be a main option in the passing game in Week 17. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 20, but is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Arcega-Whiteside is expected to play this week and could see a solid amount of targets in the passing game because of the injuries the team has at the position. He could be a possible flex option in some leagues but can be benched if better options are available.

Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside (foot) will play in Week 16, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Arcega-Whiteside is a dark horse play in DFS as he'll be thrust into the starting lineup with all the injuries at the position. He'll have a decent matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, but if you're in the fantasy championship game, you can't consider him as a strong flex option.

Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Arcega-Whiteside likely will be one of the starting receivers for the Eagles if he is able to play in Week 16. He has only caught eight passes in seven games this season and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside (undisclosed) is expected to be fine after limping off the field Monday, Dec. 9, according to head coach Doug Pederson Tuesday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Arcega-Whiteside's role should continue to grow following the loss of WR Alshon Jeffery and with WR Nelson Agholor still a question mark for Week 15. The second-round rookie is a very risky flex play in all formats, as he is yet to catch more than two passes in a game.

Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside finished with two grabs for 29 yards on three targets in Week 14 against the New York Giants. He was clutching at the back of his left hamstring late in the game, limping off due to an apparent injury.
Huddle Up: Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward Jr. were the only receivers left standing after Alshon Jeffery went down early, leaving Joshua Perkins to move from tight end to wideout to help. If Arcega-Whiteside is also hurt the Eagles would likely need to bring in a flood of players to work out ahead of the Week 15 game in Washington.

Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside caught one of his two targets for a 15-yard touchdown in a 37-31 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Although Arcega-Whiteside scored for the first time in his career, the rookie's role remains limited. He has just six catches for 101 yards all season, and he isn't worth owning outside of dynasty leagues at this point.

Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside is set to start on the outside in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: It's a nice step for Arcega-Whiteside, who will pick up whatever snaps became available when Jordan Matthews was cut, but it still isn't time to consider him for your fantasy lineup.

Philadelphia Eagles WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside earned the praise of head coach Doug Pederson on Thursday, Aug. 22, after catching eight of his nine targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in a preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens. 'One of the things (about)J.J. is (he is) a hard worker,' Pederson said. 'You see it in practice every day. He comes to work every day. He wants to get better. He wants to be taught. He wants to learn. He has a great mentor in Alshon (Jeffery) in front of him, so he's learning from that. Being able to talk to Josh or talk to Carson (Wentz) during the week, talk about routes, talk about coverage, and that's where he really takes it over to the field, and I think that's what you saw tonight with him and his ability to make plays. The red zone we know he can be explosive. He was able to do that really not only there, but out in the field.'
Huddle Up: Whiteside's upside is impressive, but he looks to have landed on the wrong team for 2019 re-draft fantasy purposes with all the passing game weapons in Philly. He's a late-round flyer for now.
