WR - FA
This Week Outlook
The Eagles have waived injured WR Paul Turner with a settlement.
Turner was unlikely to make the final 53 even if he had been healthy, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. Turner played in 4 games in 2016 and had just nine catches.
Eagles receiver Paul Turner caught two passes for 30 yards in the team's win against the Cowboys on Sunday.
Turner has talent but without Jordan Matthews, the offense clearly ran through the running backs and tight ends. The receiver position will be the focus of improvement next season.
Eagles receiver Paul Turner started in place of the injured Dorial Green-Beckham, but was only able to catch one pass for 16 yards, as the Eagles lost 27-22 to the Redskins.
The honeymoon is over for Turner, who, realistically, had a very mediocre game last week as well if you take out a short catch that he stretched into a long gain. The Eagles are using their tight ends more than their receivers, since they can actually catch the ball when it's thrown at them.
Eagles preseason star Paul Turner, who lead the team last week in yardage with help from a 41 yard catch, will still be part of the offense after Jordan Matthews returns. Turner played 41/80 snaps against the Bengals.
Turner is a name to keep an eye on. The Eagles offense looks anemic, so redraft expectations should be tempered. However, he's worth a flyer in dynasty leagues in the off-chance that Philly doesn't add a downfield weapon in 2017.
Eagles rookie receiver Paul Turner led the Eagles with six catches for 80 yards, as the Eagles lost to the Bengals 32-14.
More than half of Turner's yardage came on a short pass in the third quarter that he took for 41 yards. Still, with very little life from any other receiver on the Eagles, some stats for the very new rookie are a welcome sight.
