Comparing the Dallas Cowboys WR corps amongst NFC East foes
By Tyrone Starr
Philadelphia Eagles (Gold medal)
Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace, Mack Hollins, Markus Wheaton
There really is not much difference between the Eagles and Giants receiving corps. The Eagles are being awarded the gold medal here more out of stability than anything else. Beckham is better than Jeffery but Agholor is better than Shepard. Barring injury, Jeffery will be around all sixteen games. The same cannot be definitively said for Odell.
While Jeffery’s yards were down in 2017, he also played the entire season with a torn rotator cuff. All he did in the playoffs was go for 12 catches, 219 yards and 3 TDs in three games. His performance earned him a $52M extension.
Agholor nearly doubled both his receptions and yards from 2016 while scoring 8 touchdowns in 2017. Wallace and Wheaton add veteran leadership as Hollins continues to grow in his second year.
