Alshon Jeffery 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

First season in years he played healthy.

120 targets-57 catches-789yds-9TD's

Ertz + Algholor makes it easier for him as complenetary pass catchers

No eagles wr has more than 850yds so they have a nice balance of spreading the ball around but Alshon is  #1 in targets and TD and #2 in yds

Still a big play guy with Wentz or Foles as the QB

Production should improve going into year 2 with the team as he builds rapport with the QB

 

So where does he go next fantasy draft?

He's back to WR1 status for me. Definitely with a healthy Wentz.  Thank you Chicago for letting him walk. Now your forced to draft a receiver for your young QB.

Some think a jump ball specialist is worth 13m a year, some don't.

9 TD's is 9 TD's Jumpball or not.

I guess...if you think that they would not have made it without him.

This. 

 

I thought Jeffery's contested catch ability was invaluable for Wentz this year.

I guess when you compare it to the 14.5m that GB will be dolling out for Adams next few years it looks like a nice bargain.

Your 100% right. Alshon changed everything for the Eagles. He's the reason Aghalor had such a good year. Aghalor was benched and almost cut last year he was so bad. They were a different team with Alshon, no doubt.

Ok, ok...with no bear castoff, no eagle SB, we get it.

When you watch the way Wentz plays with his eyes always looking downfield for the big play and that he uses his legs to buy time for the WR to get open, a jump ball specialist is exactly what was needed on the Eagles.

Whoa, slow down. Nobody is  saying they won because of Alshon. But you can't deny he played a huge role in their offensive success. Are you a scorned Bears fan?

Perfect breakdown, I couldn't agree more. He was exactly what they needed. In all accounts he's a good teammate and great in the locker room. I'm glad he re-signed in Philly.

"Your 100% right. Alshon changed everything for the Eagles. He's the reason." -SC Fan

 

He made a great td catch in the SB, so did Clement.  I was rooting for them...golf clap.

 

The raw #s:
On the season; he had his lowest yard total since his rookie year, 2nd lowest ypc, along with the lowest catch rate of his career.  

 

Now, were those #s because he was now playing in an inferior offense with a lesser QB?  Lol, of course not.  But his continued downward trend in '18 confirmed why the bears couldn't afford to pay a wr 13m for a being a specialist.  The eagles had that luxury.

The Eagles offense is predicated on spreading the ball around which I'm sure is the reason for his lower totals. He came in and immediately took heat off of the other receivers. His presence  alone forces defenses honest and to pay attention. He HAD to be the man in Chicago. Who else did they have?? Its the Bears, if they knew what they were doing maybe they be hosting a Parade today.

I didn't think Chicago should have resigned him to what he wanted.  A long-term commitment to Jeffery at that time didn't make sense.

 

On the flip side I thought his one year prove it deal was perfect for Philly.  Especially with all the issues they had in 2016 with WRs flat out dropping the ball. 

 

Win win for both orgs imo.

He was not a "Man" when it was asked of him in Chicago...it was time to wish each other the best and split ways.

Your right. You can't polish a turd. They needed a heck of a lot more than Alshon. A quarterback would have been a good start.

Eagles spread it around with alshon,agoholor -ertz each getting +700-800yds. Also with an effective running game you dont need a bunch of 1500yd  wr's on the team.
