WR - GB
Week 12 Outlook
According to Ari Meirov of Pro Football Focus, the Green Bay Packers are releasing WR Travis Fulgham.
Fulgham only just recently signed with the Packers but is being released. Green Bay is reportedly interested in adding him to the team's practice squad. The Packers will enter the season with seven wide receivers, four of whom are rookies or sophomores.
According to ESPN's Field Yates, WR Travis Fulgham, who was released by the Denver Broncos Tuesday night, has been claimed off waivers by the Green Bay Packers.
The Packers receiving core is thinner this season than even QB Aaron Rodgers is used to, so the Packers are taking a shot on another pass catcher. Fulgham led the Eagles in receiving yards in 2020 with 539 yards. Fulgham is best known for his five-week stretch that season where he accrued 29 catches, 435 yards and four touchdowns. He will likely be on the roster bubble, though, and does not need to be rostered in any fantasy formats.
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.
