WR - MIA
Week 6 Outlook
Per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Philadelphia Eagles have cut WR Travis Fulgham.
One of the feel-good stories of 2020, Fulgham, will be looking for a new team in 2021, despite being the leading WR for the Eagles last season with 38 catches for 539 yards and four touchdowns. As great as Fulgham was for the Eagles during his five-game span where he compiled 435 yards he disappeared from relevance just as fast as he concluded the remainder of the year with nine catches for 104 yards through seven games. These inconsistencies paired with the addition of WR DeVonta Smith and expected growth of second-year WR Jalen Reagor made Fulgham expendable. While there is a chance Fulgham is kept around on the Philadelphia practice squad it seems like he will be searching for a new team in 2021 and won't have much, if any, fantasy value this season.
Eagles wide receiver Travis Fulgham caught one of his two targets for 18 yards and lost a key fumble into the end zone in Friday's preseason finale against the Jets.
Fulgham came into training camp as a projected starter in Philadelphia, but now his roster spot is very much in jeopardy due to the emergence of Quez Watkins and Fulgham's own struggles.
Eagles wide receiver Travis Fulgham is expected to be featured in the team's three-receiver sets once training camp commences. He will line up in the X or Z spot with Reagor in the slot and Smith outside.
The Eagles used Ward in three-receiver sets during their offseason program, but Fulgham is expected to replace him during training camp. The wideout caught 29 passes for 435 yards and four touchdowns from Week 4 to 8 last season but then 9/104/0 over the final eight weeks. He's listed as the WR100 in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.
Former Eagles coach Doug Pederson was reportedly concerned about Travis Fulgham's "work habits" during this past season.
The 25-year-old got off to a blistering start to the year, topping 70 receiving yards and/or scoring a touchdown in each of his first five games. However, from that point on he failed to top 30 receiving yards in any one contest. Fulgham was supposedly placed in Pederson's doghouse and was phased out of the offense. A new coach arriving in Philadelphia should only be seen as a positive for Fulgham moving forward.
Eagles wide receiver Travis Fulgham played just 11 snaps on offense on Sunday and was not targeted in the passing game.
Fulgham played the fewest snaps of any wide receiver on the Eagles on Sunday and has now gone two straight games without a catch. He has become an afterthought in the offense just a month after he was its focal point.
