Alshon Jeffery expected to be released by Eagles once season starts

According to Ian Rapoport, the Eagles are expected to release wide receiver Alshon Jeffery heading into the 2021 season.

Fantasy Impact

This comes as no surprise as Jeffrey has only started in 12 games over the last two years while being the tenth-highest paid player on the team and most expensive wide receiver. He carries a dead cap hit of $10.5M as opposed to his salary of approximately $6.5M. The Eagles seem set on heading into the 2021 season with a younger corps of receivers even if it means eating some money. In the wake of the Carson Wentz trade, Jalen Hurts seems poised to take over as the Week 1 starter. But with free agency opening up in less than a month, the Eagles may opt to bring in a veteran. Alshon will be a likely candidate for a one-year "prove it" deal as the 31-year-old has struggled to stay healthy the last few years and hasn't had a 1,000-yard season since 2014 in Chicago.

Alshon Jeffery a healthy scratch Week 17

Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is inactive for the team's Week 17 matchup against the Washington Football Team.

Fantasy Impact

The Eagles have nothing to play for in Week 17 and are resting many of their starters and key contributors. The team is likely to cut or trade Jeffery this offseason, so they are likely holding him out to avoid a potential injury. With Jeffery and DeSean Jackson both inactive, the Eagles will have Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward, Travis Fulgham, John Hightower, and Quez Watkins at wide receiver.

Alshon Jeffery catches a touchdown pass in win over Saints

Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery caught his only target for a 15-yard touchdown in Sunday's win over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Jeffery played 31 snaps on Sunday but was targeted just once. However, that one target did turn into a touchdown reception. Jeffery is not a viable option in any fantasy format right now despite Sunday's touchdown.
