Most Underrated Player: Philadelphia Eagles

The most undervalued player in drafts this year is Jalen Reagor. Reagor is a rookie wide receiver drafted in the first round out of the university of TCU. Normally rookie wide receivers are very inconsistent and do not perform well, fantasy wise, but I believe this rookie class can change that stigma and Reagor will be a big part why.

The first big reason is the Eagle receivers can never stay healthy. Last season, their number one receiver at the end of the season was a quarterback turned receiver in Greg Ward Jr. Alshon Jeffery and Desean Jackson always have nagging injuries and seem to never finish a season fully healthy. JJ Arcega Whiteside hasn't lived up to his potential so at some point during the season, Reagor can be the number one receiver for the Eagles.


Even if Jeffery and Jackson are healthy. Reagor is extremely versatile and can be used in a plethora of ways so he will always have the opportunity to make big plays. He also will rarely be lined up with the opposing teams number one corner so thats another big advantage for Reagor.


His metrics are really impressive for a players his size. His combination of speed, size and strength are going to make him a dominant force now and in the future. Although his college stats may not attribute to his skills, just watching his highlights will show you how great of an athlete he is. Only 60% of his targets were catchable so quarterback play was a big issue at TCU. However now on the Eagles, he will have Wentz throwing him the football and he will learn from receivers like Desean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery.


I believe Reagor can finish as WR2 or better and will be in the top 3 in rookie receiver finishes and for a receiver being drafted at the end of the 11th round, the 51st receiver off the board, this is great value.
