Jalen Reagor News

Two receptions Sunday

Reagor caught both targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 29-13 victory over Chicago.

Analysis: Reagor played a season-high 16 snaps on offense as starters were rested in the second half. He'll likely be limited to just his punt return role in the playoffs.

No catches on two targets

Reagor didn't have a reception on two targets and had one carry for a five-yard loss in Saturday's overtime win over Indianapolis. He had three punt returns for 13 yards.

Analysis: Both of Reagor's targets turned into interceptions as he may have run routes incorrectly that led to turnovers. He's mostly been used on gadget plays when on offense, so Saturday's performance in the passing game may not bode well for more playing time if injuries strike the receiving corps. Reagor is still the team's primary punt returner.

Two touches in Sunday's win

Reagor had one reception for 38 yards on his lone target and one carry for eight yards in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Analysis: Reagor played just two snaps on offense as he continues to get some playing time on offense but mostly just for gadget plays. Reagor does have a reception in each of his last three games, but has just three targets and has played just 16 snaps on offense over that span. He continues to primarily work as Minnesota's punt returner.

Catches first TD with Vikings

Reagor had a one-yard touchdown reception on his only target in Sunday's win over Chicago.

Analysis: Reagor played just three snaps on offense, so don't read too much into his touchdown on a shovel pass. He looks set to have a limited role on offense except for some gadget plays unless another receiver gets hurt. He's primarily working as a punt returner.

Just one reception

Reagor had one reception for two yards on his lone target in Sunday's win over Detroit. He also returned two punts for an average of 10 yards.

Analysis: Reagor played just one snap on offense, so his role didn't grow after playing a surprise 10 snaps on offense in Week 3. He's primarily working as a punt returner.

Plays 10 snaps on offense

Reagor had one reception for seven yards on two targets and one rushing attempt for 17 yards in Monday's loss at Philadelphia. He also returned two punts for an average of 2.5 yards.

Analysis: Reagor played 10 snaps on offense after playing just special teams in the season opener. He's the fourth wide receiver, so he's not likely to get much more of a workload without an other receiver getting hurt. However, his usage shows the coaching staff may have more of a role in the offense that first thought after his trade from the Eagles late in the preseason.

Works just as punt returner

Reagor returned one punt for seven yards in Sunday's win over Green Bay. He played all of his four snaps on special teams.

Analysis: Reagor didn't play on offense as he's serving just as Minnesota's punt returner after his preseason trade from Philadelphia. He may not factor in the passing game unless a top three receiver gets hurt.

Ready for Week 1

Reagor has adjusted quickly to the Vikings' scheme and is in a position to receive snaps Sunday against the Packers, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Reagor, who was traded from Philadelphia to Minnesota at the end of August, feels comfortable enough with the Vikings' offensive system, where he'll have a chance to receive WR snaps Sunday against the Packers. Although he's listed as the team's No. 4 wide receiver behind Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen and K.J. Osborn, the 2020 first-round pick is in line to serve as the team's starting punt returner Week 1.

Traded to Minnesota

The Eagles traded Reagor to the Vikings on Wednesday in exchange for a 2023 seventh-round pick and a 2024 fourth/fifth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Schefter reports that the 2024 draft pick "deescalates" to a fifth rounder if Reagor doesn't meet certain statistical markers. He'll likely start off as a depth receiver and return man in Minnesota, where the top portion of the depth chart is in good hands with Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen and KJ Osborn. It's nonetheless a decent landing spot for the disappointing 2020 first-round pick, with only Ihmir Smith-Marsette as competition for the No. 4 role. Eagles fans won't soon forget that Reagor was drafted one pick before Jefferson in 2020.

Still with Eagles for now

Reagor has a spot on the Eagles' initial 53-man roster, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 2020 first-round pick has been a subject of trade rumors for a while now, but he might still have some value to the Eagles as a depth receiver and return specialist. If he does stay with the team, Reagor likely will land behind at least A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins on the WR depth chart.

Suits up for preseason finale

Reagor played but not did not record any stats in Saturday's 48-10 preseason loss to Miami.

Analysis: Reagor wasn't a heavy part of the game plan in Philadelphia's preseason finale, but the fact that he suited up at all is concerning. While it wasn't a big surprise that none of DeVonta Smith, A.J. Brown or Quez Watkins didn't suit up, Zach Pascal was also rested for the game. Reagor may survive final roster cuts to remain in Philadelphia, but he doesn't appear poised for a big role to begin the regular season.

Hauls in two passes

Reagor caught two of four targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 21-20 preseason win over the Browns.

Analysis: Reagor made both of his catches in the first half while playing with quarterback Gardner Minshew, who started with Jalen Hurts sitting out. Heading into his third season, the much-maligned Reagor is expected to compete most with Quez Watkins and Zach Pascal for targets behind starters A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith.

Aug 21, 2022 1:54 PM EST


Works with second team

Reagor recorded three receptions on four targets for 26 yards in Friday's 24-21 preseason loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Reagor played with the second-team offense and caught passes from Gardner Minshew rather than Jalen Hurts. Nevertheless, he put in a solid performance -- highlighted by a 17-yard catch -- and also served as Philadelphia's top punt returner. Due to the acquisition of A.J. Brown, Reagor is fighting for a roster spot this preseason and this performance should help him in that effort.

Aug 12, 2022 9:55 PM EST


Making case for roster spot

Reagor had a strong showing in the Eagles' first full padded practice Tuesday as he fights for a roster spot, Glenn Erby of USA Today reports.

Analysis: The 2020 first-round pick has been reduced to a fight for a roster spot rather than a starting role after a pair of disappointing seasons to start his career. A trade and a fresh start elsewhere likely provides his best path to fantasy relevance, but if that doesn't occur, he's at least making a good case to serve as the Eagles' fourth or fifth wideout. He caught a long touchdown pass in practice Tuesday between a pair of defenders, but he'll have to keep practicing at a high level to earn a job.

Aug 2, 2022 5:05 PM EST


Working with second team

Reagor is working with the second-team offense in camp, Bo Wulf of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: Reagor was selected in the first round of the 2020 draft but failed to impress in his first two professional seasons, averaging 32 catches for 347.5 yards and 1.5 touchdowns. He'll have a tough time matching even that modeset level of production this season thanks to the Eagles' acquisition of A.J. Brown, which pushed Reagor further down the depth chart. His best shot at fantasy relevance this season likely requires a trade to a new team willing to give him a fresh start.

Becomes trade candidate

Jalen Reagor slipped further down the depth chart and is a candidate to be traded after the acquisition of A.J. Brown, Zach Berman of the Athletic reports.

Analysis: Eagles GM Howie Roseman stated after the trade that the team still plans to have Reagor on the roster. But the 2020 first-round pick is now fifth at best on the depth chart with Quez Watkins and Zach Pascal having surpassed him. Greg Ward has been more productive in recent years and is also still on the team. Reagor himself seemed frustrated by news of the deal and erased all mentions of the club on his social media soon after. It may be best for all parties if the 23-year-old got a fresh start elsewhere.

Minimal work against Buccaneers

Reagor caught one of three targets for two yards in Sunday's 31-15 loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Reagor had at least five targets in four of the first five games of the regular season, but his workload diminished later in the year. He topped five targets just once in the final 12 contests during the regular season and caught just 33 of 57 targets for 299 yards and two touchdowns while rushing 10 times for 32 yards across 17 appearances. The 23-year-old was Philadelphia's first-round pick during the 2020 NFL Draft, but he's failed to carve out much of a role across his first two professional seasons.

Jan 17, 2022 12:53 PM EST


Totals 29 yards in loss

Reagor caught two of his three targets for 19 yards and rushed three times for 10 yards in Saturday's 51-26 loss to Dallas.

Analysis: It was an underwhelming end to an underwhelming regular season for Reagor. He led all Philadelphia pass-catchers in snaps with 69 but still failed to produce. The 2020 first-round pick finishes the campaign with 33 catches on 57 targets for 299 yards and two touchdowns. That's 97 yards fewer than his rookie season despite playing six more games.

Jan 11, 2022 12:14 AM EST


Just 15 yards in victory

Reagor caught two of his four targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 34-10 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Reagor was coming off a career-high 57 yards in his previous outing and looked like he might see one of his higher target totals of the season in this one, but Jalen Hurts didn't throw him the ball at all in the second half. The 2020 first-round pick remains at best the third option in the passing game for a run-heavy team.

Dec 27, 2021 1:51 PM EST


Posts season high in victory

Reagor caught all three of his targets for 57 yards in Tuesday's 27-17 win over Washington.

Analysis: The 57 yards were a season high for Reagor, who led all Philadelphia wide receivers on the day, trailing only Dallas Goedert among pass-catchers. The TCU product's three catches were his high mark since Week 5.
