Alshon Jeffery might open season on PUP list

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport tweeted on Monday that Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) could open the season on the PUP list, which would cause him to miss at least the first six games of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport mentioned that Jeffery is progressing as planned but the timing on his rotator cuff surgery could force the team to leave him on the PUP list at the beginning of the season. If Jeffery were to miss time it would be a significant bump for Nelson Agholor's fantasy stock with Mike Wallace also seeing additional work.

Alshon Jeffery placed on active/PUP list

The Philadelphia Eagles placed WR Alshon Jeffery and FS Chris Maragos on the active/PUP list to open training camp. Jeffery underwent shoulder surgery to repair his rotator cuff back in February, so the move isn't unexpected. Both players can be activated at any time but will likely be limited as the club proceeds with caution.

Fantasy Impact

It doesn't sound like too much of a concern for Jeffery, who played through the injury last year and still put up a 57/789/9 receiving line. He's still a solid WR2/3 target with plus touchdown ability and can be selected in the fifth or sixth round of most fantasy drafts

Alshon Jeffery placed on Active/PUP by Eagles

Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is being placed on the Active/PUP list to start training camp, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter on Twitter. Jeffery is recovering from surgery for a torn rotator cuff, an injury he played through all of last season.

Fantasy Impact

The Active/PUP list means the player is unable to take part in training camp practice but can be moved off the PUP list and back to the active roster at any time. Jeffery is expected to be ready for the start of the season, and the preseason version of the PUP list does not require him to miss any time.

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.
