News: 1 day agoAgholor was on the field for 50 of a possible 58 snaps on offense in Sunday's 25-6 win over the Jets, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. In the process, the wideout caught all three of his targets for 21 yards.
Spin: Meanwhile, Jakobi Meyers logged 52 snaps and six targets, and Kendrick Bourne was out there for 31 plays and was targeted three times. With RB James White and TEs Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry also commanding regular targets, Agholor's weekly volume figures to fluctuate in an offense that tends to spread the ball around to multiple targets. That said, it's pretty clear that Agholor is destined for steady playing time this season, health permitting.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Agholor signed with the Patriots after enjoying a bit of a resurgence during his lone season with the Raiders. Following an up-and-down five years in Philadelphia, Agholor put together a strong 48-896-8 receiving line on 81 targets last season. He struggled with drops (seven) but was heavily targeted down field (15.4 aDOT was third highest among WRs) and answered the bell with plenty of explosive plays (his 18.7 YPR ranked second and his 11.1 YPT fourth). Agholor is entering his seventh NFL season at age 28 and has yet to post a top-20 fantasy campaign (he has finished better than 34th once: 2017). Agholor very well could lead New England in targets, but consistent flex production may be a lot to ask in a run-heavy scheme that will throw to its RBs and TEs often. Agholor is a fine bench option.
