Jeffery notched 56 of the Eagles' 62 offensive snaps during Thursday's 28-23 win at Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery's workload was the most significant of any Eagles' skill-position player not named Carson Wentz, resulting in a team-high 10 targets and 71 receiving yards. While he wasn't on the other end of Wentz's three touchdowns, Jeffery ranks a close second to Zach Ertz (two TDs on Thursday) in terms of targets on the season (53 versus 48). As a result, Jeffery should get in the end zone again in due time due to his career TD rate of 8.5 percent.

Jeffery hauled in four of 10 targets for 71 yards in Thursday's 28-23 win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery bounced back from a 31-yard afternoon in Week 5, although he was far from efficient from a catch rate standpoint. The veteran wideout did see double-digit targets for the second time this season, although he's still in search of his first 100-yard game. Jeffery had been bedeviled by some tough cornerback matchups prior to Thursday, and still has the Redskins' Josh Norman and either Aqib Talib or Chris Harris, Jr. of the Broncos on the docket before the end of October. However, he clearly is one of Carson Wentz's favorite targets, essentially ensuring he should continue seeing plenty of volume each week. He'll look to help the Eagles prevail in an important divisional matchup against the Redskins following a Week 7 bye.

Jeffery nabbed three of four targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 34-7 win over Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

While the rest of the Eagles offense went off, including long touchdowns to Nelson Agholar and Torrey Smith, Jeffery was mostly quiet. Seen as the big addition to Philly's receiving corps in the offseason, Jeffery hasn't had a big impact. Aside from Week 2's loss to Kansas City, Jeffery has been held to under 60 yards in every other game. He's still, aside from maybe Zach Ertz, Philly's top target, but it's not fair to expect Jeffery to get the same kind of exposure in Philadelphia as he had in Chicago as the Eagles simply have a greater collection of targets than Chicago has had in recent years.

Jeffery caught three of six targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-24 win over the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery scored from eight yards out on the opening drive and was quiet for the rest of the afternoon. A matchup with Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward limited Jeffery's volume, though he still managed a respectable 19.4 percent target share. Jeffery hasn't caught any breaks in terms of individual matchups this season, and it won't be any different Week 5 against Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals.

Jeffery caught four of eight targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery was the most targeted Eagles wideout on the day, but he was relatively quiet as he drew some attention from Jenoris Jenkins. He still managed to come up with one of the biggest plays of the game, however, hauling in a 19-yard completion to set up the winning 61-yard field goal by Jake Elliott as time expired. Jeffery still seems to be growing into his role on a new team, but he should remain a key component of the offense next week against the Chargers.

Jeffery caught seven of 13 targets for 92 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery struggled to connect with Carson Wentz at the beginning of the game, but the duo established a strong rapport as the game moved on, including a 16-yard touchdown connection late in the third quarter. The rangy wideout wound up leading the team in targets and catches while finishing second in yardage. Jeffery got off to an inauspicious start to his career as an Eagle, but he came through this time around and should be one of the most heavily-targeted options on a weekly basis. He will look to overcome a difficult matchup with the Giants in Week 3.

Jeffery caught three of seven targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 30-17 win over the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery's rapport with Carson Wentz appears to be a work in progress, although he nearly brought in an impressive jump ball on a deep pass that would have improved the optics of his stat line. He also drew attention from the opposing defense, including quite a bit from Josh Norman, which likely played a part. Jeffery should continue to see plenty of targets this season and will look to improve his output next week against the Chiefs.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson expects Redskins cornerback Josh Norman to shadow Jeffery on Sunday, PennLive.com's Aaron Kasinitz reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pederson pointed out that Norman followed Jeffery around the field when the Redskins and Bears played in Week 16 last season. Jeffery caught five of 10 targets for 92 yards, but Norman won the day with a pair of interceptions on hideous passes from Matt Barkley. Playing with a much better quarterback this time around, Jeffery should only get a modest downgrade for the matchup. Norman is a first-rate playmaker, but he's not quite on the Patrick Peterson-Richard Sherman level when it comes to limiting opponents' receiving production.

Jeffery caught two passes of four targets 35 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game against Miami.

EDGE Analysis

Torrey Smith and Zach Ertz stole the show early on, but Jeffery eventually came through with a 20-yard catch, and then found a spot spot between three defenders for a 15-yard touchdown later on the same drive. The Eagles pulled most of their key offensive players after the first quarter, pleased with what they'd seen from Carson Wentz and his supporting cast. Jeffery has drawn the target on nine of Wentz's 19 pass attempts in the two games they've played together this preseason.

Eagles receivers coach Mike Groh believes Jeffery is behind when it comes to learning the team's offense, ESPN.com's Tim McMaus reports. "I think he's behind," said Groh. "Anytime you miss the amount of time that he did, he's a little bit behind. Fortunately we have time for him to catch up. I thought they got off to a great start the other night."

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery caught two of five targets for 23 yards in Thursday's preseason game against Buffalo, with at least one of the incompletions occurring when he ran an incorrect route. The Eagles will give their prized acquisition every chance to work through any issues, as evidenced by the fact he accounted for more than half of Carson Wentz's nine pass attempts Thursday. While he may have fallen a bit behind when he missed a week of practice with a shoulder injury earlier in training camp, Jeffery should have plenty of time to get on the same page with Wentz before Week 1. Jeffery didn't seem to have too much trouble with the mental aspect of football in Chicago, where injuries were the far greater concern.
