Alshon Jeffery is working out with Carson Wentz in North Dakota

Alshon Jeffery and other Eagles receivers are in North Dakota this week to work out with quarterback Carson Wentz. With training camp set to start in just a couple weeks, Jeffery is reportedly joined by fellow wide receivers, Jordan Mathews, Nelson Agholor, Torrey Smith, Shelton Gibson and tight ends Trey Burton and Zach Ertz.

Fantasy Impact

When you are playing in a new city, in a new system, and with a new quarterback, getting in some extra work in the offseason is always a good idea. Jefferey is on a one-year deal in Philadelphia and has every incentive to work hard and have a great year. As one of the better wide receivers in the league who will be working with a promising young quarterback in a system that desperately needed a number one receiving option last season, Jeffery has everything in place to have a big year in 2017.

Alshon Jeffery is clicking with Wentz in mini-camp

When Alshon Jeffery was added to the Eagles roster at the beginning of free agency, there were skeptical fans that Jeffery wasn’t a true number one receiver. So far during workouts this offseason, Carson Wentz and Jeffery have started to click during team drills. While Wentz’ throwing accuracy still may be slightly off, Jeffery has displayed ‘freakish’ effort and talent to make wild passes catchable.

Fantasy Impact

Jeffery was brought on to the Eagles in the spring to be a number one target option for Wentz. So far he has proven to be reliable for the second-year quarterback. While it is only mini-camp, still be on the lookout for Jeffery’s fantasy stock to increase after his sub-par season last year.

Alshon Jeffery to sign with Eagles

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Philadelphia Eagles and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery agreed to terms on a one-year, $14 million deal.

Fantasy Impact

The Eagles pursued Jeffery around last year's trade deadline to no avail. However, they landed him Thursday on a one-year deal. Phialdephia had a need at wide receiver and they brought in the best availible in this year's free agent class. He is in the middling WR1 conversation for the 2017 fantasy football season.

Alshon Jeffery, Bears still in discussions

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Chicago Bears and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery are continuing to "discuss a potential deal as he weighs offers from other teams. "

Fantasy Impact

With the free agent signing period set to open at 4 pm Thursday, the possibility of Jeffery re-signing with the Bears is not out of the question. Per reports, Jeffery is weighing out offers from other teams before he ultimately makes his decision on where he will play moving forward. He is expected to receive a deal that pays him north of $15 million per year on the open market. With DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Kenny Britt already agreeing to deals with new clubs, Jeffery will be in even higher demand with the free agent wide receiver class quickly depleting.

Alshon Jeffery, Bears 'open to a reunion'

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Chicago Bears and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery's agent had a "positive meeting" on Saturday, later adding that "both sides are more than open to a reunion."

Fantasy Impact

Although the Bears did not place the franchise tag on Jeffery for the second straight year, it appears that retaining the wideout is not out of the question. As Rapoport reported, Jeffery's agent and the Bears had a "positive meeting" on Saturday, which is good news if they actually intend to re-sign him with the free agency signing period set to begin on March 9. If the two sides are unable to come together on a long-term deal, Jeffery is expected to be heavily pursued by the Eagles, Titans and 49ers. He would make an immediate impact as a WR1 on any one of the aforementioned clubs.
