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.

Ward caught one of two targets for a 15-yard touchdown in Sunday's 42-30 loss to the Chiefs.
ANALYSIS
Ward once again saw most of his action with the game already decided, as his touchdown was the last offensive play of the game for either side. His other target came in the first half, but the Houston product still saw just 21 snaps in this one and remains buried on the depth chart.

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.
