25-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
Philadelphia Eagles
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.

The Eagles tendered Ward as an exclusive rights free agent Monday, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
ANALYSIS
Ward thus can only negotiate with the Eagles this offseason, which makes it seem very likely that he'll stay in Philadelphia. The 25-year-old was the only wideout to start all 16 games for the team in 2020, and he finished with the best stat line of his career (53-419-6). Philadelphia already has parted ways with DeSean Jackson and are expected to release Alshon Jeffrey in the near future, making it conceivable that Ward sees similar opportunities in 2021. Of course, there's always the possibility of the Eagles adding substantial pass-catching competition this offseason.
