Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery was actively shopped after the team guaranteed his 2020 salary last season. Jeffery found out that he was on the market and was troubled by the mixed messages he had received from the team, a source close to the receiver said.
Huddle Up: Jeffery is now 30 and has been riddled by injuries his entire career. He hasn't had a 1,000-yard season since 2014, and he has very minimal upside as a WR5.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery had the option in his contract exercised Friday, March 27.
Huddle Up: Jeffery's status with the team is still uncertain, so fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation. He was limited to 10 games last season because of injuries and finished with 490 receiving yards. He could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in 2020 depending on his situation.

Updating a previous report, the agent for Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery refuted a claim that his client would welcome a trade to another team. In a Twitter post Friday, Feb. 21, agent Tory Dandy wrote that Jeffery 'loves being in the city of Philly and playing for the Eagles.'
Huddle Up: The 30-year-old Jeffery is coming off a disappointing 2019 campaign where he only had 43 receptions for 490 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games, marking his worst statistical performance since his rookie season in 2012. He is also in the middle of a nine-month recovery period from Lisfranc surgery last December, so his trade value couldn't be much lower. At best, Jeffery should be viewed as a WR4 for next season's fantasy drafts.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) is fully amenable with a trade this offseason and 'would welcome the change of scenery,' according to story published by The Athletic on Friday, Feb. 21.
Huddle Up: While the timing appears right for both the Eagles and Jeffery to move on, Jeffery's value is currently at a low with the wideout just turning 30 and facing a nine-month recovery from Lisfranc foot surgery in December. With the question marks and coming off his least-productive season (43 catches-490 yards-4 TDs) since his rookie year of 2012, Jeffery has now slid down into WR4 territory for fantasy.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) underwent surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury Saturday, Dec. 14, by noted foot specialist Robert Anderson. The hope is that Jeffery is ready for the 2020 season.
Huddle Up: Jeffery will be 30 next season, and he has missed at least three games in four of the last five seasons. He'll likely be in the WR5 mix next season, but his upside as a top-36 receiver is waning.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) was diagnosed with a Lisfranc injury Thursday, Dec. 12, and will undergo surgery at some point in the near future, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Jeffery was officially placed on IR earlier in the day, but we did not know exactly what injury he was dealing with. Now we do. Jeffrey faces a long rehab schedule and will be difficult to trust moving forward, as Lisfranc injuries tend to be tricky. The oft-injured receiver will turn 30 years old over the winter but figures to be a safe bet to return considering he is guaranteed $11.5 million next season. Expect Philadelphia to address the receiver position heavily this offseason.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) is out for the rest of the season with a foot injury he suffered in Week 14 against the New York Giants, according to a source. The team is still reportedly gathering opinions about the exact injury, however.
Huddle Up: This injury wraps up yet another injury-shortened season for the 29-year-old, who has played a full season once in the last five years - averaging only 12 games over that span. Jeffrey is still due $12.75 million over each of the final two years of his deal, so he's probably not going anywhere this offseason. With Nelson Agholor also ailing, the Eagles could be forced to finish the season with Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and a few practice squad players at the position.
