Alshon Jeffery undergoes surgery

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) underwent shoulder surgery Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport also stated that Jeffery underwent a surgery to repair a rotator cuff injury suffered at some point last preseason -- he ultimately played through the ailment for the duration of the 2017 campaign plus the postseason. Per reports via Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the "goal" for Jeffery's recovery is for him to be ready for the 2018 season opener, though optimism suggests that a preseason return is feasible barring a setback.

Alshon Jeffery scores a touchdown in Super Bowl

Alshon Jeffery caught three of his eight targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

Fantasy Impact

Jeffery made his touchdown catch (a 34-yarder) late in the first quarter, and looked primed for a huge game. But Stephon Gilmore shadowed Jeffery for most of the game after that point, and he was shut out in the second half. Still, Jeffery had a fine first season in Philadelphia and scored three touchdowns in the playoffs. He should only improve next season with another year in the Eagles offense.

Alshon Jeffery scores two touchdowns against the Vikings

Alshon Jeffery caught all five of his targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Jeffery saved his best game of the season for the NFC Championship Game, which included a 53-yard touchdown catch shortly before halftime. The big receiver looked to be on exactly the same page as Nick Foles, and he'll need to be again in two weeks for the Eagles to have a chance at beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl.

Alshon Jeffery with four catches in win over Falcons

Alshon Jeffery caught four of five targets for 61 yards in Saturday's win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Like much of the Eagles offense, Jeffery was efficient but not explosive on Saturday. He'll likely either be matched up against Xavier Rhodes Marshon Lattimore next weekend, both of whom would limit Jeffery's fantasy stock.

Alshon Jeffery with limited week 17 action

Eagles receiver Alshon Jeffery played just 18 of 59 snaps in Week 17 against the Cowboys in the team's 6-0 loss. He had a single 8 yard catch.

Fantasy Impact

Jeffery and the offense didn't look good even when they were out there under QB Nick Foles. Alshon should be reliable WR2 come next fantasy season, but shouldn't be counted for much in the NFL playoffs.
