Eagles WRs: What do we do? (1 Viewer)

Alshon may stay on the PUP for awhile. Agholor has missed 4 straight practices. There is the Wentz knee injury. Do we fade all of these guys? Is Mike Wallace a sneaky good option? Is Mack Hollins possibly a thing? 

 
Eagles WR were unreliable last year, don't expect anything different this year. If any of them are injured, bump Sproles and Ertz.

Mack Hollins is the Eagles equivalent of Matt Slater. I don't think he will develop into a starter let alone a fantasy asset.

If you're looking for undervalued, I'd still target Agholor. If you're looking for a late round streamer for W1, maybe Wallace, but maybe better options on other teams.

 
His main value is special teams. You're right he might never become the perennial Pro Bowl special teamer that Slater was, but he is really good in that role. 


For now.  That doesn’t pigeon hole him the rest if his career.  Hollins already is a legit long threat, and Wallace is on a 1 year deal.  Hollins is also one hell of a hard worker and has the ability, qualities, attitude, and mental toughness to potentially turn into a quality WR.

But to compare him to a guy whose 10 year career as a WR was surpassed by Hollins in his rookie year by 15 receptions is a really poor analogy with the vast bulk of Hollins’s career still ahead of him.  It also shows you haven’t done very little homework on Hollins.

I would argue the opposite. That I have too much information on Hollins to the point of I've already decided what he is when it's only his 13th month. I think there is a undercurrent of "Hollins hasn't developed" in the Philly media. Feel free to ignore and just follow his physical traits or the fact he is on some national sleeper list.

:lol:   Oh I will, but not for the reasons you’re assuming.  Too much information .. thanks for the chuckle.

 
Jeffery was always an injury headache in Chicago. Bears fan here. I feel like Aghalor is probably the big play here for WRs, but this situation makes me think more and more that Goedert could really have a rookie impact. 

 
Personally, I think both you guys are right in your analysis   ST's player who just doesn't quit who earns playing time  Question being as to whether he can learn (Coach'd up) and mature as a player  Believe the Eagles know QB's pretty good so I'm not going to be to quick dismissing their ability too judge WR's  Obviously, a rather small sample size to garner much info  Here's a comparison from last Season:   I’m here to talk about Mack Hollins. Or as I like to call him, Martavis Bryant 2.0.  http://rotoviz.com/2017/08/mack-hollins/  

(imho) I also think he compares well to a 32 yr old Wallace in so far as running deep routes  (Season may take some toll)  Meaning the opportunity should be present but has he developed the skills needed?  Definitely potential considering such a small investment required  (Latest news on Twitter is missing practice)  Depending upon roster limits it might be nice to see more action in the PreSeason

His college career was not too much different from what he showed last year. Great deep threat, seldom used in other areas. He was drafted where he was because he is a + STer. Any more is bonus, from a NFL draft perspective.

He is a good deep threat, already. The question is can he develop into anything else and if he remains 1 dimensional, does someone like Shelton Gibson earn more reps. Would rather add Gibson for free than trade for Hollins, assuming the league is deep enough Hollins is owned from last year. Same bet, same odds. 

From a dynasty perspective, his main benefit over Gibson and Bryce Treggs is he should make the team due to ST. I think Gibson is pretty much a lock now as well.

I agree Goedert could have value this year. He is a better player than Burton, and no reason to think Wentz, if healthy, can't make 2 TE relevant, especially if one is a target hog and the other is a RZ threat. All news from Philly media on him is great.

 
Should be interesting to watch.  You think Hollins can’t develop.  I think he can.  We’ll have to wait and see.

As an Eagles fan who just watched the games last year and doesn't follow Philadelphia media, Hollins pretty much performed whenever he was called upon last year. Is that his ceiling? I don't know but when a guy performs consistently well in his role, you generally try to expand that role. We will see.

I like Goedert in this offense even with Jeffery in the lineup.  If Jeffery misses time Goedert can run the intermediate and deep routes better than Ertz and will certainly be involved in their RZ packages.

As for Mack Hollins, I like him as a dynasty stash, maybe as an emergency waiver pick up in redraft.  Need to see what he does with the next 2 preseason games, but I wouldn't draft him.

 
Take hollins or Wallace late and hope you got a good lotto ticket.  If it doesn't pan out after a few weeks they are an easy cut

 
I'd easily take Goedert to fill the void. With Clement or Sproles running around, LB's will be quite confused.

 
So based on responses so far, I assume there is no other young unknown WR in Philly that people think could emerge, correct?

FWIW Shelton Gipson (sp?) was getting a little buzz earlier. At least, I had read in a few places that he was showing well.

 
As with the Pats, the Eagles’ O changes drastically from game to game depending on matchups, etc. There is no Eagles WR to own if you’re looking for a set-it-and-forget it guy.

How many WR's the Eagles going to roster?  Believe Hollins is a lock based on ST's and 1st team reps  IF you are a fan of both Wallace and Wheaton it's near impossible to like the speed and route running of Gibson

 
Jeffery, Agholor, Wallace and Hollins are locks for the roster. Gibson and Wheaton are 5 and 6 in the pecking order. Both will make the team if Jeffery starts on PUP. If he doesn’t, then one will definitely make it and the other’s fate will come down to how many WRs they decide to roster. 

 
Maybe talent will dictate more 12, 22 and 21 personnel grouping? So I could see Ertz, Goedert and the RBs being the winners here but I'm really not sure.
