2021 Fantasy Outlook
Ward was the only Eagles wide receiver to appear in all 16 games last season, and even with all the injuries to his position mates, he still only caught 53 passes for 419 yards and six touchdowns. The Eagles added DeVonta Smith in this year's draft but subtracted Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson, so Ward finds himself in roughly the same place on the depth chart: fighting for a roster spot and tertiary targets when on the field.

Won't return Sunday

Back
January 16, 2022
Ward (back) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Buccaneers.
ANALYSIS
Ward was limited during Wednesday's practice due to a back issue, and it appears he aggravated it during Sunday's game. He wasn't targeted in the passing attack, so his absence is unlikely to change the Eagles' offensive game plan.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Ward ascended to a starting role down the stretch last season as Eagles receivers dropped like flies. A quarterback at the University of Houston, he did what he could to prove himself, catching 20 of his 25 targets for 199 yards and a touchdown over the final four games, including the wild-card loss to Seattle. Philly added several receivers this offseason, but with several injury-prone veterans ahead of him on the depth chart, the 24-year-old has shown he's a battler and once again could capture an important role in the offense at some point in 2020.
