Bobby Sylvester

Cooks had been so consistent all season, then over the past two weeks he has gone for just 3 receptions and 55 yards combined. While another bust to that degree is unlikely, he is merely a WR2 this week for the first time all season. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 Losing Wentz is likely the death of Jeffery as a must-play wide receiver this year, though you'll likely want him in lineups for Week 15. The Giants defense has been brutal this year, allowing seven different wide receivers to rack up 15 or more PPR points, including Dez Bryant last week. Missing Janoris Jenkins is huge for that defense, as they now don't have a perimeter cornerback to handle the top-tier wide receivers. It's why we saw Bryant toss Brandon Dixon aside like a rag doll. Foles has shown the ability to remain competent, and at times look solid, so I'd be safely putting Jeffery into lineups as a high-end WR3 who should come with a solid floor.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Jeffery and the rest of the Eagles pass-catchers obviously get a bit of a downgrade in outlook with Carson Wentz on the shelf, but it's certainly not all gloom and doom this weekend against the Giants. New York has allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to wide receivers over the last eight weeks, and injuries to Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple have left Ross Cockrell and Brandon Dixon to be forced into duty against opposing No. 1 receivers. Those are matchups that Jeffery can exploit, even with Nick Foles (who is certainly competent) under center. Jeffery should remain a WR2 for the matchup, so there's no need to run from him.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Steelers have allowed the third most points to fantasy receivers in the last 5 weeks, Cooks should be a solid WR1 this week.Jeffery has a terrific matchup this week, but he does not have as much upside with QB Nick Foles behind center.
