Jeffery has had a brutal slate of cornerback matchups to start the season, going against Josh Norman, Marcus Peters, Janoris Jenkins, Casey Hayward, and Patrick Peterson, but there is a glass-half-full approach to this. Despite those tough matchups, Jeffery sits as the No. 16 most targeted wide receiver in the league. James Bradberry looked good his rookie year, but hasn't really impressed in 2017. He doesn't shadow anyways, so it'll be interesting to see how the Eagles use Jeffery and it they try to match him up with Daryl Worley a bit more in coverage, who has already allowed two touchdowns this year. With the fear of limited pass attempts for Wentz, Jeffery can't get into the WR1 range, but you should feel safe plugging him in as a WR2 in this matchup. The Panthers have allowed four top-20 wide receiver performances thus far.

Alshon Jeffery leads in yardage in win

Receiver Alshon Jeffery was moderately involved as he went four for 71 yards for the Eagles as the team beat Carolina 28-23 on Thursday Night.

Fantasy Impact

Despite his decent yardage, Jeffery once again didn't get the volume to sustain his high draft status. His consistent involvement and big play ability will keep him in your lineup and also will keep his floor high, but his ceiling is limited with how much Wentz spreads the ball around.
