6 months agoIn one of the more puzzling moves of the Chip Kelly era, and there were many, The Eagles selected Nelson Agholor as the 20th pick of the first round of the 2015 draft. His time with the Eagles has been, shall we say uneven. Good games have been followed by bad. Including an entire 2016 season in which he had the drops due to issues getting his head right. With his rookie contract coming to an end, the likelihood of him being re-signed by Philadelphia is far from good. He will likely be fighting this season for a new contract on a new team. This could mean good things are in store if he plays hard in his audition. But with his occasionally fragile mental state, it could also mean more mistakes as he tries too hard. After the departure of Golden Tate, Agholor will move back to the slot position. A spot in which he had his most productive season at in 2017 when he had 62 receptions for 768 yards and eight touchdowns on 95 targets. With new weapons in Miles Sanders, Dallas Goedert and JJ Arcega-Whiteside in the mix and Zach Ertz finally taking the leap to elite tight end status, the targets will not be as high for him this time around. Add to this the return of DeSean Jackson and even more targets are coming off the board which would have been headed to Agholor. Last season, on two more targets he had 64 receptions. Despite the slight rise in catches, the yardage went down to 736 and his touchdowns were cut in half to only four. If these numbers sound good to you, and in deep leagues or dynasty leagues they should, then you should consider drafting him in the area of round 12 of fantasy drafts. His ceiling is going to be limited by the surrounding cast in Philadelphia. However, playing the slot in a good offense should give him the chance to provide consistency. His upside is that of a low-end WR3 and his floor a WR5. In the 12th round, this is a good return on investment and at this point of drafts, he is someone worth a shot on your team. It will only take one injury to Alshon Jeffery for his value to rise. And with Jeffrey's history of injury, this is not as farfetched as Eagles fans would hope.--Dominick Petrillo - RotoBaller
