    Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside 'made a major case for playing time during the offseason program,' according to Mike Kaye of NJ.com. 'He bullied defensive backs, at times, with his leaping ability,' Kaye said. 'He is a clear size-strength mismatch in practice.'

    Huddle Up: Whiteside has earned nothing but rave reviews this offseason, and at the very least, it seems like the rookie is going to be a weapon in the red zone immediately. At this point, he's worth a first-round pick in the back half of rookie drafts, and he's a late-round target with upside in redraft leagues.

    Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside is the clear No. 4 receiver, according to Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com, and Rosenblatt believes Arcega-Whiteside has 'potentially elite' ability in the red zone.

    Huddle Up: Although Arcega-Whiteside will have a tough time making consistent contributions in redraft leagues as a rookie, he would be worth scooping up if the Eagles suffered an injury to a starter. In the meantime, Arcega-Whiteside could be a second- round gem in rookie drafts.

    Philadelphia Eagles second-round WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside figures to be no better than the fourth receiver on the roster behind Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor in 2019, which makes it unlikely he will play much outside of special teams as a rookie, according to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery has dealt with some serious injuries in recent years and Jackson has played 16 games only twice in 11 seasons, so there is some hope for the rookie to get some playing at some point. Dynasty leaguers should have much more interest in Arcega- Whiteside, however, as Agholor's contract expires at the end of the season, while Jeffery and Jackson's deals skyrocket in 2020. It seems reasonable Arcega-Whiteside will be counted on to start no later than next season.

    Stanford WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 57th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

    Huddle Up: Arcega-Whiteside probably will be the No. 4 receiver for the Eagles this season, so it is not known how many targets he will receive as a rookie. He probably will not be a great option in standard leagues but will have value in keeper leagues.
