2020 Fantasy Outlook
Agholor caught less than 40 passes in three of five seasons with the Eagles, who made him the 20th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft before the USC product became the subject of internet memes due to his drop issues. A one-year, $1.05M contract from the Raiders this offseason proves just how far Agholor has fallen in the eyes of roster builders around the league. He's now slated to face off against rookie Bryan Edwards for the No. 4 spot at receiver behind Tyrell Williams, Henry Ruggs and Hunter Renfrow, though Agholor also has a shot at earning the punt-return role.

Reaches deal with Raiders

March 23, 2020
Agholor's one-year, $1.05 million contract with the Raiders includes $887,500 guaranteed, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Tafur expects Agholor to return punts for the Raiders as well as provide the team with added wideout depth, but the terms of the 2015 first-rounder's deal demonstrates that the free-agent market for his services wasn't especially robust. Agholor -- who caught 39 passes for 363 yards and three TDs in 11 games for the Eagles last season -- will now vie for slotting in a Las Vegas receiving corps that also includes Hunter Renfrow, Tyrell Williams and Zay Jones.

2016
2015
The 2015 first-rounder has carved out a bigger role the last two seasons with an average of 96 targets, most from the slot. At 6-0, 198, and with a 4.42 40 time, Agholor has average size and good speed and quickness, but his role limits his upside. While he did have five catches of 40-plus yards despite modest volume, his average depth of target (10.3) makes a repeat of the downfield success unlikely. Moreover, despite the big plays, Agholor managed only 7.6 YPT and 11.5 YPC. He also sees some work in the red zone (seven looks inside the 10), but he converted only two of those for scores, and he'll take a back seat to Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery in that department. Finally, the Eagles brought in veteran speedster DeSean Jackson this offseason, and while Jackson and Agholor run different routes, it's roughly another 100 of Carson Wentz's targets that won't be going to Agholor.
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.
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.
