|Who is the Eagles No.1 wide receiver? -- Sat May 9 8:00 am --|
Nelson Agholor won't claim the throne, just yet
|Maclin is gone and the Eagles don't appear to have a No. 1 wide receiver waiting in the wings - although a case could be made for Jordan Matthews. More than likely, the numbers will be divvied up among a group that will include more than just receivers. Nelson Agholor is polished, he's fast, he's versatile, and he's smart.
FF Today's Take: With Maclin now in KC, there's a big opportunity for Agholor to make an immediate impact, even though he won't acknowledge it just yet. He'll likely play most of his snapd in the slot during his first season, as did Jordan Mathews last year. Mathews finished the season with a 67-872-8 line, checking in as fantasy's No.24 wide receiver. Agholor has WR2 upside in redraft leagues.
|Eagles add to receiving corps, sign Miles Austin -- Mon Mar 30 6:11 am --|
|The Eagles signed wide receiver Miles Austin to a one-year contract, according to a report by the NFL Network.
The report said Austin's deal is worth $2.3 million, with an additional $700,000 in incentives.
FF Today's Take: with Jeremy Maclin now in Kansas City, the Eagles are left with a void at receiver. Austin will join Jordan Matthews, Riley Cooper and Josh Huff in a receiving corps that will likely grow during the NFL Draft. Austin brings a veteran presence but comes with a boatload of injury risk, most notably of the hamstring variety. He's a WR5 until further notice.
