Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) is without a timetable for his full recovery from the Lisfranc injury that ended his 2019 campaign, but head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday, June 16, Jeffery will remain a key piece of the passing game once able to take the field. 'Alshon has done extremely well this off-season with his rehab. . . . ,' Pederson said. 'I just want him to focus on his rehab and get strong, but the second part of your question is, he's a big part of our offense, and we do plan to have him in the offense at some point. But if there's a couple games there where he's not ready, then, we're not going to put him out there and just wait for him to get healthy.'
Huddle Up: The Eagles added WR Jalen Reagor in the first round and acquired WR Marquise Goodwin in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers. Veteran WR DeSean Jackson remains as a projected starter opposite Jeffery when the receiving corps is full. Injury risk coupled with already declining production should knock Jeffery into the WR3 tier, especially with added competition for targets this year.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) is being counted on to be a 'major part of the offense' as he recovers from his Lisfranc injury, according to Dave Spadaro of the team's website. Spadaro also noted that the Eagles have 'made sure this offseason to get the word out that Jeffrey is being counted on.'
Huddle Up: Even as he enters his age-30 season, the question isn't whether Jeffrey can get the job done or not, but rather if his body will let him. The South Carolina product has played 13 games or fewer in for the last five seasons and logged 16 games only three times in his eight-year career. Nevertheless, fantasy owners should be happy if they can get WR3-level production out of him for about 10 games in 2020 at what should be a WR4 price.

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.
