Week 1 Half PPR Rankings

JJ Arcega-Whiteside Note

While JJAW will reportedly be a starter on this Eagles team week one, it's hard to trust him right out of the gates. JJAW did little with his opportunity last season to inspire confidence rolling him out in your lineup. He's a fine stash candidate to see what the offense looks like against Washington, but I recommend looking elsewhere.

Greg Ward Note

It appears Ward will start in 3WR sets, which offers value in games the Eagles fall behind or drop back to pass a lot, though I'm not sure Washington fits that bill. Teams averaged just 33.7 pass attempts per game against them, and wide receivers accounted for just 17.1 of them. That doesn't leave much for a No. 3 option at wide receiver (could argue No. 2 with Reagor out), and keep in mind that Zach Ertz and Miles Sanders are also ahead of him. We're not sure just how Washington will deploy their cornerbacks yet, but we're also unsure just how much Ward will play. He's someone who certainly benefits with Reagor out of the lineup, and the matchup is a good one, so he should be considered a decent last-minute WR4/5 option in this game.

Jalen Reagor Note

Reagor is expected to suit up in this matchup, but that doesn't mean that you can trust him in your lineup right away. He's still a rookie WR that has missed some time in training camp and he may not have full range of motion. I recommend waiting a week to see what Reagor looks like before you roll him into your lineup.
