Jalen Reagor may have already passed Travis Fulgham in the pecking order for targets on the Eagles
My Week 11 fantasy football wide receiver rankings are probably a little bit of a buzzkill.
That's because I'm throwing some cold water on one of the better stories of the 2020 season: Travis Fulgham. Fulgham will be part of the Eagles' plans moving forward, but he will be taking a backseat to some of their other weapons like Jalen Reagor. Reagor out-targeted Fulgham seven to five this past weekend and finished with more catches (four vs. one) as well.
This is not the first week that Reagor seems to be more of the focal point as the Eagles had similar results the previous week. The one thing keeping both WRs back is Carson Wentz, but that's going to end soon. Either Wentz is going to improve or Jalen Hurts is going to be the Eagles quarterback. Either way, expect Reagor to continue to close the gap in production between him and Fulgham.
The good news is the Eagles are playing the Browns this weekend. The Browns have given up the seventh-most fantasy points per game to WRs, making this both a) a "get right" game for Wentz and b) even if Reagor somehow gets outproduced by Fulgham, he should still have a strong game this weekend. But that's not going to happen. Or it might.
Because I might have jinxed Reagor when I grabbed him for my best ball fantasy team. But I suspect he's going to continue to fly up the rankings and that continues this week.
Teams on bye: Buffalo, Chicago, New York Giants, San Francisco
