2018 Fantasy Outlook
A 2015 first-rounder left for dead, Agholor kick-started his career in 2017 as a key cog in the Eagles' multifaceted attack. Playing opposite Alshon Jeffery and sharing the field with end-zone target Zach Ertz, Agholor still managed to score eight times on only 95 targets, thanks in part to nine looks inside the 10 (T-9th). At 6-0, 198, Agholor has only average size, but he's fast (4.42 40), quick and agile, capable of making highlight-reel spins out of tackles for big plays. And while Agholor is still the team's third option, the difference between his role and Jeffery's is maybe 25 targets, i.e., he's more like option 1C on a wide tree. Still only 25, Agholor could improve coming off his first season with significant production. Carson Wentz should eventually be healthy, Torrey Smith is gone and Jeffery hasn't been a paragon of durability during his career. But we get the feeling that no matter the roster composition, coach Doug Pederson will continue to be creative and spread the ball around, and the Eagles added speedster Mike Wallace to replace Smith. Any expansion of Agholor's role likely will be minor. Read Past Outlooks

Heavy workload to continue
WRPhiladelphia Eagles
September 17, 2018
Agholor will remain the Eagles' No. 1 wide receiver for the foreseeable future with Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) week-to-week and Mike Wallace out for the next few weeks due to a fractured fibula.
ANALYSIS
Jeffery's recovery from surgery to repair a torn right rotator cuff has extended into the season, but Wallace's situation only came to light Sunday, when he limped off the field in the first quarter. Even if Jeffery gains his long-awaited clearance to play Sunday versus the Colts, Agholor is poised to lead a wide receiver corps that currently includes DeAndre Carter, Shelton Gibson and Kamar Aiken. Agholor has opened the season playing 140 of the Eagles' 151 offensive snaps, which he's turned into 16 catches for 121 yards and one touchdown on 22 targets.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2016
2015
A first-round pick out of USC in 2015, Agholor has failed to live up to his potential thus far in his NFL career, hauling in just 36 receptions for 365 yards and two touchdowns a season ago. However, he's drawn impressive reviews in training camp and could turn a new leaf in the wake of Jordan Matthews' relocation to Buffalo. As it stands, Agholor's now the favorite to open the 2017 season as the starting slot receiver, though he'll need to continue to fend off rookie Mack Hollins for reps.
Injuries, lack of opportunity and poor quarterback play derailed Agholor's rookie year, but he should get more chances in 2016. At 6-0, 198, Agholor has only average size, but he ran a 4.42 40, and is quicker than he is fast. He's a precise route runner with good hands and a knack for getting open when the play breaks down. He'll still be handicapped by average-at-best quarterback play from Sam Bradford and rookie Carson Wentz, and there's more competition for looks (Rueben Randle was added to Jordan Matthews, Brent Celek and Zach Ertz.) But there's no dominant established No. 1 receiver, and we have to believe the Eagles will want to see what they have in last year's first-round pick.
Among the six receivers taken in the first-round of this year's draft, Agholor might have found the best landing spot. While Jordan Matthews is likely to be the team's top target, Agholor only needs to beat out the uninspiring Riley Cooper, injury-plagued 31-year-old Miles Austin and last year's third-rounder, Josh Huff, to be the team's second option. At 6-0, 198, Agholor has only average size, but he ran a 4.42 40, and is quicker than he is fast. He's a precise route runner with good hands and a knack for getting open when the play breaks down. While the combination of Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez isn't ideal, playing in Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense should ensure a good baseline of passing attempts and scoring opportunities.
