2017 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Aug-21-2017 by Shawn Childs

Jeffery has been a frustrating player to own over the last two seasons leading to 11 missed games. After being overlooked on draft day in 2016, he looked sharp in his first two games (4/105 and 5/96) with 13 combined targets. His opportunity rose in Week 6 and Week 7 when Jeffery had 24 combined targets, but he finished with a poor catch (41.7 percent) over this span. His first TD didn't come until Week 8. Alshon missed four games over the second half of the season after being suspended for taking PEDs. When he returned to the lineup, Jeffery deliver two steady games (6/89/1 and 5/92) with 19 combined targets. For most of the season in the Bears' offense, he looked like a WR2 rather than the elite lead WR Fantasy owners expected after a high level of success in 2013 (89/1421/7) and 2014 (85/1133/10) when he played in the shadows of Brandon Marshall. Alshon signed a one-year deal for $14 million in March. The plan would be for him to post a plus season leading to a long-term contract while still being in his prime. In 2016, the Eagles attempted 297 passes to the WR position with minimal success (170/1839/8). This stats should grow dramatically in 2017 with the help of Jeffery. A floor of 80/1000/7 and an upside of 100/1400/12 if he plays 16 games. Excellent gamble as a WR2 while playing in a contract year as long as there isn't any negative injury news over the summer.
