On the verge of being written off as a draft bust after two unproductive seasons, Agholor emerged as an important contributor last season, posting career-high numbers across the board and joining the short list of the NFL’s best slot receivers. He ranked 22nd in fantasy scoring among wide receivers and was tied for eighth among all pass catchers in TD receptions. In the Super Bowl, Agholor caught 9-of-11 targets for 84 yards. Agholor plays in a prolific offense and is tethered to terrific young QB Carson Wentz.


The Eagles have an abundance of quality pass catchers, including TE Zach Ertz and WRs Alshon Jeffery and Mike Wallace, so Agholor’s target ceiling is limited. Agholor is more of a possession receiver than big-play threat, as only 15 of his 121 career receptions have covered 20 or more yards.

Bottom Line

The 20th overall pick of the 2015 draft, Agholor turned his career around last year and has become a fantasy-viable slot receiver, though he’s better suited for a backup role than a permanent spot in your starting lineup.
