The Philadelphia Eagles return to action in Week 4 on Thursday Night Football welcoming back one weapon, and waiting at least one more week for another. Alshon Jeffery was cleared from the injury report and will play after a Week 2 calf injury. On the other hand, DeSean Jackson will miss another week with an abdominal injury. Jackson suffered the injury in Week 2, and has yet to return to practice.
Fantasy impact: The hope is that Jackson will return in Week 5. However, given that he has not practiced since suffering the injury, we’ll have to wait and see what next week’s practice report brings. Nelson Agholor has been the big beneficiary of Jeffery and Jackson’s absences, leading the team in targets in Week 3. Jeffery’s return will cut into Agholor’s target total, and Jackson’s eventual return will further cut into it.
The Eagles face a tough Packers defense in Week 4. Agholor and Jeffery would be the two start options, with WR2 or flex status the best spot.
