Travis Fulgham: Unable to sustain big first half

Fulgham finished the 2020 season with 38 catches on 67 targets for 539 yards and four touchdowns.

Analysis: Fulgham burst onto the scene in Week 4, when much of the Eagles' receiving corps was out with injury. He proceeded to gain 435 yards and score all of his touchdowns over the next five games, but with the team healthier after their Week 9 bye, the 25-year-old was hardly heard from again. He is under contract for 2021 but is owed no guaranteed money and therefore will most likely have to battle for his roster spot heading into next season.

Travis Fulgham: Makes two grabs in loss

Fulgham caught two of his three targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 37-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: Fulgham has seen his playing time drop precipitously from 65 snaps in Week 11 to no more than 26 in any of the past four games. Accordingly, his production has dropped, and he hasn't topped two catches or 30 yards since the Eagles' bye.

Travis Fulgham: Posts best second-half performance

Fulgham corralled both of his targets for 30 yards, recovering a fumble during Sunday's 33-26 loss to the Cardinals,

Analysis: In his first five appearances of the year between Weeks 4 and 8, Fulgham accumulated 29 receptions for 435 yards and four touchdowns. With the deterioration of the Eagles' offense over the second half of the season, as exemplified by four consecutive outings of 17 points or fewer Weeks 10 through 13, Fulgham saw his production go off a cliff. The Old Dominion product managed only one performance of more than 10 receiving yards over his preceding five appearances entering Week 15, but with Jalen Hurts providing a new electricity to the offense, Fulgham may carry more upside moving forward.

Travis Fulgham: Plays only 11 snaps

Fulgham wasn't targeted during Sunday's win over the Saints.

Analysis: It's the first time all season the 25-year-old didn't receive a target as he played a season-low 11 offensive snaps. Fulgham has clearly fallen out of favor in the passing game, with Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward, Alshon Jeffery and Quez Watkins ahead of him on the depth chart.

December 15, 2020 7:09 PM EST

Travis Fulgham: No catches in loss

Fulgham did not catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 30-16 loss to Green Bay.

Analysis: Fulgham didn't see a target until the fourth quarter and has now gone four-straight games with two or fewer catches and 16 or fewer yards. With the offense struggling and most offensive weapons healthy, this looks like the new normal for the 25-year-old.

Travis Fulgham: Slump continues Monday night

Fulgham reeled in both of his targets for 16 receiving yards during Monday's 23-17 loss to the Seahawks.

Analysis: The first five games of Fulgham's Eagles career yielded five consecutive outings of 55-plus receiving yards, with the second-year man also tallying four receiving scores during that span (Weeks 4 through 8). Over his past three outings, however, Fulgham's production has decreased with Carson Wentz's continued passing struggles. He has accumulated just four total catches for 32 yards in three games since Week 10, going without a touchdown over 14 targets in that span. His quarterback has not reached three passing touchdowns in a game all season, as Fulgham prepares for a Week 13 matchup against Green Bay's 15th-ranked pass defense.

December 1, 2020 5:20 PM EST

Travis Fulgham: Just one catch in loss

Fulgham caught just one of his seven targets for eight yards in Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Browns.

Analysis: Fulgham led the Eagles in targets but unfortunately was held to just one catch and eight yards for the second-straight game. While the 25-year-old hasn't lost his quarterback's attention, the pair have been out of sync lately and most of the rest of the Eagles' pass catchers are healthy again, giving Carson Wentz plenty of options. Nevertheless, they'll hope to get back on track against a Seattle defense giving up almost 50 more yards per game to wide receivers than any other team in the league.

Travis Fulgham: Makes just one catch in loss

Fulgham caught just one of his five targets for eight yards in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: It was a shocking end to a streak of four-straight games of at least 73 yards and touchdowns in four of his last five. The 25-year-old had also seen at least double-digit targets in three of his last four, but Carson Wentz spread the ball around. With Philadelphia's receiving corps now mostly healthy, Fulgham could face a continued reduction in targets going forward.

November 15, 2020 10:43 PM EST

Travis Fulgham: Leads team in receiving

Fulgham had six receptions (seven targets) for 78 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-9 win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Fulgham continued his recent run of being Carson Wentz's favorite outside target, leading all Philadelphia wideouts in receptions, yards and targets for the third week in a row. The 2019 sixth-round pick capped off a strong night with a beautiful fade route that allowed him to stay a step ahead of his defender and corral a well-placed Wentz pass for what ended up being the deciding score Sunday. Fulgham should get another opportunity to shine against the Giants following the team's upcoming bye week after DeSean Jackson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve,

Travis Fulgham: Strong showing in Week 7 win

Fulgham secured five of 11 targets for 73 yards in the Eagles' 22-21 win over the Giants on Thursday night.

Analysis: The second-year wideout retained a starting role despite the return of DeSean Jackson from a hamstring injury, and he once again finished as Carson Wentz's most frequent target. Fulgham finished second in receptions and receiving yards to tight end Richard Rodgers, and he's now logged double-digit targets in three straight games. Fulgham's role is naturally expected to lessen once the Eagles begin getting their multitude of injured pass catchers back in earnest, but a leg injury suffered by Jackson late in Thursday's game now opens up the possibility of another opening in the receiving corps even when Alshon Jeffery (foot) is ready to jump back in action. Fulgham will look to continue offering strong production in a Week 8 divisional battle against the Cowboys on Sunday, Nov. 1.

October 22, 2020 9:53 PM EST

Travis Fulgham: Still set to start Thursday

Fulgham is expected to start against the Giants on Thursday even with DeSean Jackson (hamstring) set to retake the field, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.

Analysis: Fulgham has scored in each of his three starts and is averaging 95 receiving yards per game, so it's not surprising to see that the Eagles intend to utilize him as a starter on the outside opposite DeSean Jackson on Thursday, with Greg Ward operating out of the slot. Jalen Reagor (thumb), Alshon Jeffery (foot) and Dallas Goedert (ankle) are all seemingly on track to retake the field in the near future, at which point Fulgham's path to targets could become more obscured, but for the immediate future he'll be a candidate to once again serve as Carson Wentz's favorite target, especially with Zach Ertz (ankle) out. If Fuglham is able to keep up his outstanding streak of production on primetime during Thursday Night Football, he could parlay his way into a consistent gig even when Philadelphia's other pass catches get healthy.

October 21, 2020 1:52 PM EST

Travis Fulgham: Strong encore performance

Fulgham secured six of 10 targets for 75 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' 30-28 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Analysis: One week after generating a career-best 10-152-1 line against the Steelers, Fulgham had a productive fantasy day against a second consecutive fearsome defense. The second-year receiver's receptions and receiving yards were both team bests, while he shared the lead in targets with Zach Ertz (ankle), Fulgham's touchdown grab came on a prayer of an 18-yard throw from Carson Wentz with 3:48 remaining, giving him two touchdown grabs in as many games. While his role is expected to shrink to a degree whenever Alshon Jeffery (foot), DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Jalen Reagor (IR-thumb) return to action, Fulgham will look to make an impact again in a Week 7 Thursday night divisional battle versus the Giants.

Travis Fulgham: Seizes opportunity

Fulgham recorded 10 receptions on 13 targets for 152 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Both DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Alshon Jeffery (calf) remained sidelined, clearing a path for Fulgham. He took advantage by leading the team in receptions, targets, and yards, regularly beating Mike Hilton and others in the Steelers' secondary. Fulgham picked up big chunks of yardage, logging five receptions of 15 or more yards. He also chipped in a four-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter. While it remains to be seen if Fulgham can maintain a role when Jackson, Jeffery and Jalen Reagor (thumb) all return to the field, he appears to have formed a connection with Carson Wentz. However, he'll face a tough matchup in Week 6 against the Ravens.

October 11, 2020 2:02 PM EST

Travis Fulgham: Poised for another start

Fulgham is one of four healthy wide receivers on the Eagles' roster ahead of Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, Jeff Skervsky of 6ABC reports.

Analysis: J.J. Arcega-Whiteside is returning from a chest injury after missing one game, while DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Alshon Jeffery (calf) will be out for another week. Fulgham and John Hightower were the starters in last week's 25-20 win over San Francisco, though it was slot man Greg Ward who led the team in targets for a second straight game. Fulgham made a splash with his go-ahead, 42-yard TD catch in the fourth quarter, but he only saw three targets on the night and got less playing time (60 percent snap share) than both Hightower and Ward. Between Arcega-Whiteside's return and the difficult matchup, Fulgham is little more than a desperation option for Week 5 fantasy lineups.

Travis Fulgham: Makes big splash in debut

Fulgham had two catches (three targets) for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-20 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: Fulgham was signed off the practice squad this week with the Eagles down several wideouts. The 25-year-old made a strong first impression with his new club by hauling in a 42-yard touchdown reception that helped seal Philly's first win of the season. Fulgham entered the contest with zero receptions to his name, but the Eagles' current wideout corps has very little experience as well, so there could be an opportunity to seize if the team's top three wide receivers remain sidelined for Sunday's matchup against the Steelers.

October 5, 2020 1:06 AM EST

Travis Fulgham: Added to active roster

Fulgham moved from the Eagles' practice squad to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: The Eagles are in the midst of an injury crisis at wide receiver, with Alshon Jeffery (foot), DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Jalen Reagor (thumb) all out and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (calf) doubtful. Fulgham's zero career catches don't necessarily set him up to play a large role Sunday against San Francisco, though that doesn't place him far behind Greg Ward (42 catches), Deontay Burnett (15 catches) or John Hightower (three catches).

October 3, 2020 11:23 AM EST

Travis Fulgham: Receiving another chance in Philly

The Eagles claimed Fulgham off waivers Thursday.

Analysis: Fulgham's recent stay with the Packers lasted nine days before he was sent to waivers for the second time this month. A sixth-round pick of the Lions in 2019, he got some run in the last three games of last season but couldn't corral any of his three targets. He may have a difficult time earning a spot on Philadelphia's regular-season roster due to the upgraded nature of the receiving corps.

August 20, 2020 6:01 PM EST

Travis Fulgham: Let go by Green Bay

Fulgham was waived by the Packers on Wednesday.

Analysis: Fulgham was snatched off waivers by the Packers last week after the Lions cut him, and faced a similar fate Wednesday. The Old Dominion product has yet to make a catch in his NFL career, so he'll likely have to battle for a practice squad spot elsewhere.

August 19, 2020 5:03 PM EST

Travis Fulgham: Claimed by Packers

Fulgham was claimed off waivers by Green Bay on Monday, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Fulgham was let go by Detroit on Saturday after he suited up in three games with the club in 2019. The 2019 sixth-round pick has yet to make a catch in his career, and he'll likely have to push for a spot on the team's practice squad heading into 2020.

August 10, 2020 3:11 PM EST

Travis Fulgham: Let go by Lions

Fulgham was waived by the Lions on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 2019 sixth-round pick played in just three games in his rookie season, failing to record a catch off three career targets. The Lions invested in a bevvy of castaways and veterans at wide receiver which made Fulgham expendable, but it's possible the Old Dominion product could catch on with another team, even if it's on the practice squad.
