2020 Fantasy Outlook
The 2019 second-round pick struggled with lower-body injuries throughout his rookie season and also with drops, managing just 10 catches on 22 targets despite starting for much of the second half. Although the Eagles acquired a number of new receivers in the offseason, the 23-year-old's standout production and ball skills at Stanford should mean that his roster spot is safe and he'll get another look. Given the age and frailty ahead of him in the Eagles' receiving corps, Arcega-Whiteside likely will see the field in 2020, but he'll need to convert those opportunities in order to stay there.

Arcega-Whiteside caught just four passes on eight targets for 85 yards this season.
ANALYSIS
Injuries were largely to blame for his poor showing as a rookie, but that was hardly the case in Arcega-Whiteside's sophomore season. Even though the receiving corps was ravaged by injury in the first half of the campaign, the 24-year-old managed more than 18 snaps or one target in a game just once each all year. Arcega-Whiteside did get COVID-19, but the 2019 second-round pick had already gone the route of a healthy scratch before then. He would also remain so when he recovered and will likely begin 2021 at the bottom of the Eagles' depth chart.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Eagles weren't lacking in wide receiver talent in advance of the 2019 draft, but that reality didn't stop GM Howie Roseman from selecting Arcega-Whiteside in the second round. Arcega-Whiteside boasts an all-around skill set that he used to reel off 10.5 YPT and 28 touchdowns on 212 targets during his three-year stint at Stanford. Even if he's unable to wrest many snaps from the top three of Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor as a rookie, Arcega-Whiteside's red-zone prowess may help him achieve some relevance at times. After this season, the Eagles are expected to allow Agholor to move on, at which point Arcega-Whiteside will become a mainstay of the offense.
