Dynasty & Redraft: WR Jalen Reagor, Eagles

Recommended Posts

Urge a little caution here, because at the same time last year JJAW was being equally hyped from similar sources.  That being said, It’s nice to read.

I can attest to this. I just feel athletically, they are two different types. It showed up in scouting film and its showing on the practice field (for both guys) right now.

Except Reagor is a 5x better prospect than JJAW ever was

Is it really going to happen this year? It's starting to feel like it.

When we were talking about numbers for the prop bet on Reagors rookie season, I found 3 WR who had over 700 yards for the Eagles in their rookie seasons.

Jeremy Maclin

DeSean Jackson

Jordan Matthews.

As a prospect I think Reagor is better than Maclin or Matthews. I have to pause before saying he is better than Jackson who has had a pretty special career. I think he is better than the other two easily though.

Agree here. Desean is just something else with the agility/speed. Maclin was an athlete, and this is a good comp., but I agree also that Reagor is a bit more athletic than Maclin, who never had the vert this guy has. 

 

JMatt - production/scheme really helped him as he was not nearly in the same category as the other 3 as far as athletic testing. 

 

Reagor I think will have a nice year.

Not sure that matters though. All those guys played their rookie years under different coaching staffs and probably different QBs. None of those coaches or QBs will be in Philly this year.

Matthews is a better athlete than people remember because after he never was able to recover athletically from his knee injury. 6'3", 212 with a 4.46 40. Maclin was 4.45 at a much smaller size.

Agree here, Matthews just never played fast. I'm not going to bother looking it up and haha not really trying to argue here, but I'm gonna guess he was not the best 3-cone guy. Production literally matched Dez' Bryants first 2 years in the league which is kind of crazy. Once he did get the knee injury, he was a different player though, this is true. Good guy, sucks he wasn't here the year we won it all. 

 

But back to Reagor - I really do think he is going to be a bit of a bully. Seems to be having a really good rookie camp "catching everything, is explosive, chemistry w Wentz" really checking all the boxes and he's practicing as a starter. I'm trying to temper my expectations, bc it is the Eagles, but I'm optimistic he's going to be a real one.

I mean he's no Nelson Agholar but I am optimistic for Reagor in 2020.

I'm high on him long term, but still don't think he goes above 500 yards this year.

Could it be the 2nd year in a row that the Eagles don't have a WR reach 500 yards?

The other concerning bit is the Eagles O-line has been horrible in camp. I dont think Wentz sits back throwing deep much.  Gonna be the short passing game this year.

Maybe it doesn't. Different coaches and supporting casts of course.

Just another way to try to compare them.

I certainly won't claim to know anything about the line,  but I don't think a short game would kill his value.  Obviously, the eagles want his speed threaten the safeties,  but he also has acceleration and speed that would work well in screens.

It’s been like 1 week of camp and aren’t both tackles sitting out? Eagles line is supposed to be pretty good.

Feed like every summer all the eagles receivers are great.  Not saying Raegor isn’t good but the philly wr summer hype machine is very unreliable.

####, Agholor is tearing it up and he’s not even on the team anymore.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports "it will be a shock" if Jalen Reagor doesn’t have a significant role in the Eagles offense.

Sports Radio 94 WIP’s Eliot Shorr-Parks also expects Reagor to have a Week 1 impact. Reagor may not open the year an every-down starter, but he has the clearest path to targets behind DeSean Jackson with Alshon Jeffery (foot, active/PUP) looking likely to miss a couple games. Reagor has been trending up in rookie-only drafts after Brandon Aiyuk’s hamstring injury. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside also has some camp hype, but Reagor remains the better bet for a top-three role regardless of Jeffery's status.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor left practice with a shoulder injury.

Reagor left practice holding his arm and appeared to be in pain. He went into the locker room and did not return to practice. The team has not given an update on his status yet but Ian Rapoport reports that "there is optimism it isn't serious but he'll undergo tests to be sure." This news is a major concern for Philadelphia as the team is incredibly thin at wide receiver. Alshon Jeffrey (Lisfranc) is currently on the active/PUP list and Marquise Goodwin chose to opt out of the 2020 season. Reagor was taken with the No. 24 pick to be an immediate playmaker for Carson Wentz. Now they'll be relying on DeSean Jackson and a handful of young players to start at receiver. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside has reportedly had an impressive training camp and would be in line to start if Reagor misses time.

I drafted him today, about 5 minutes before the first news hit. Then, with my next pick, I drafted Zack Moss about 2 or 3 minutes before his neck news hit. What the heck...

Going to be tough to hold him now. I am going to have to drop someone for a kicker and it's probably going to be him.

Opens up opportunity for Quez, perhaps. I feel like pretty much any able body in Philly is gonna get a chance at some targets. 

Odd this story mentions an “impressive” camp for JJAW...last I’d read the reports weren’t exactly glowing. Maybe he’s impressed since then. 

between the OL & WR injuries I’m probably out on Wentz this year. I’ve got Quez in dynasty but otherwise I’m not really planning on investing in Eagles at this rate. that’s one snake-bIt team.

Zach and Dallas time. Again.

Is it wrong to be happy about that as a guy who trades for Ertz in dynasty? :pickle: 

I mean, I’m sad for the Eagles and Reagor. It’s a tough situation. :( 

But Ertz tho. :pickle:

I've been holding JJAW since I drafted him everywhere. But I had resigned myself to the idea that I was cutting him next week. *Nobody* in any of my leagues has shown interest, but I guarantee if I cut him people will spend BB to get him. Maybe I can sell for a ham sandwich. I was kind of hoping Reagor would make the decisions academic.

Any one successful trading for him after the news?

If I were an owner I might be slightly insulted by such an advance. I’m just sayin - insult to injury.

Me: ”damn my WR got hurt, that sucks!”

them: “hey, can I buy that dude you just invested draft equity in on the cheap since he’s hurt?”

yeah - I wouldn’t be thrilled with that manager. Maybe that’s just me.

He'll play through it but it will bother him all season. I think this year is lost in redraft. Too bad

"Prior to his shoulder injury it was very obvious that Reagor was going to end up being a big part of the Eagles’ offense. He was getting a lot of 1st-team snaps, even with DJax on the field, and was being used in a variety of ways. He was displaying great chemistry with Wentz"

Reports are he will "start" opposite Desean game 1. My guess is a rotation of Hightower as well, as they definitely want "speed" on the field a lot. But I'd hold off and hope for a RZ TD week 1.

I tore into him earlier in the thread, said I wasn't impressed with his college career and not drafting him anywhere...

But the price has dropped so I got one dynasty share in the 3rd round

Hoping for the best

Thats terrific value to get him at. Your league mates are asleep at the wheel letting you do that.

Some of the best picks I think are on guys who are not really your cup of tea but you can't deny their value at the price.

Since he got injured I snagged him as a flier in 18th round in a redraft league. I am hoping to put on IR and roster another young flier. I like Reagors position even though I worry he might be a soft player. I hope for the best.

Do the Eagles intend to put Reagor on IR to start the season?  Sounds like they are contemplating that for the first three weeks.  Is there a timeline for them to make that decision?  

Just wondering since it would be nice to put him in my IR slot so I can make another waiver move.

If he's only out four weeks like they originally said, he probably wouldn't hit IR because then he'd be forced to miss at least 8 weeks I believe.

The NFL changed the IR rules for this season so a player doesn’t have to sit out 8 games
