Fantasy Football Alshon Jeffery: 2018 Player Profile

Fantasy Football Alshon Jeffery

If you only want the best wide receivers on your team, then this fantasy football Alshon Jeffery player profile is for you. As we gear up to the start of the NFL season, Football Absurdity is going to bring you a comprehensive breakdown of every notable player that will be available in fantasy football drafts.  When you don’t see us talking about Christine Michael or Mike Davis, don’t get mad at us for neglecting your favorite sleeper.  Get mad at yourself for having bad taste in football players.  We are only focusing on the top-rated running backs in standard scoring and points per game leagues.

With my player profiles, I’ve only decided to go back to look at their fantasy scoring for three years.  I could show you lists from earlier, but at the skill positions, I think three years is plenty to see what a player does.  I’ve also added a chart for their usage over that time span.  We will try to determine, based on those two factors, where the best wide receiver value lies.

Overview for Fantasy Football: Alshon Jeffery is a hard player for me to evaluate because I have always been a fan.  In my lifetime, he is one of the few players who has made the Chicago Bears offense watchable.  However, I just can’t bring myself to draft him in fantasy football.  Over the past three years, he has played in 37 games.  Even though he played all 16 games last year, he has a history of missing time.  And he has already started out this year on the PUP list, which doesn’t make me feel great about his chances to play a full season.

Strategy: At his current ADP, Alshon Jeffery is going in the 5th round of most fantasy football leagues.  My problem with his current draft position is that his ceiling appears to be a low-end WR1. That is assuming he can stay healthy, which he has not shown he can do.  There is too much risk involved with taking him here, when you can get much more reliable players, such as Mark Ingram or Russell Wilson, at that spot.

Ceiling: If Alshon Jeffery stays healthy, he could end the season as a low-end WR1 or high-end WR2.  If you are a gambling man, he certainly has the talent to gamble on.

Floor: What will actually happen is that Alshon Jeffery will be diagnosed with Myofascial Pain Syndrome, ending his season and your fantasy playoff hopes, all because you decided to bet that a porcelain doll wouldn’t break playing football.
