We saw the Eagles try and stretch the field over and over against Washington last week, but maybe they dial it back this week after Wentz was sacked eight times? Wentz's average depth of target was 11.9 yards, which was the highest among all quarterbacks in Week 1. The Rams, like Washington, will bring pressure to Wentz. We saw the Cowboys take advantage of dumpoffs, completing 18-of-25 passes to wide receivers that amounted to just 190 scoreless yards. Ward is that safety valve over the middle of the field, though we are going to see Jalen Reagor's role increase as the weeks go on. Ward did tie DeSean Jackson with seven targets last week, so he wasn't a forgotten man, but he's a lower ceiling player. The Rams moved on from Nickell Robey-Coleman this offseason, which means they had to downgrade to Darious Williams. We watched the Cowboys target him quite a bit, which can be the case with Ward this week. He might be a Danny Amendola-type start from Week 1, which turned out 5/81/0. He's on the WR4/5 radar in this matchup, as it might suit his skillset the best.

Greg Ward catches five passes Sunday

Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward caught five of his seven targets for 31 yards in Sunday's loss to the Washington Football Team.

Fantasy Impact

Ward saw seven targets but only produced 31 total yards on Sunday. With the Eagles focusing on 12 personnel and deep throws to Jalen Reagor and DeSean Jackson, Ward is likely to see inconsistent production this season. He has value in deeper best-ball leagues, but he is difficult to trust in most weekly formats.
