Greg Ward News
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward (back) injured his back in Sunday's wild-card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

In a run-first offense, Ward didn't have much of a chance to put up numbers behind receivers DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins and Jalen Reagor. In his three NFL seasons, Ward has produced 88 catches for 768 yards and 10 touchdowns on 130 targets over 40 games played.

Although he ranks second among Philly receivers with his three TDs, he's been sparingly used as the No. 4 pass-catcher for a run-first Eagles offense. Ward, who averaged 0.4 catches and 5.6 yards per game this year, will be a poor DFS option despite his basement price on DraftKings ($3,000) at his position.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward was targeted twice in a Week 17 win, making both catches for 35 yards. Ward's two targets left him fifth on the team, but he made the most of them by catching both balls thrown his way. Ward has been mostly playing on special teams this season, but has been solid in his bit role on offense. He's a valuable NFL player but not someone that should be rostered in most fantasy leagues.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward improved in his second season in the NFL in 2020, catching 53 of his 79 targets for 419 yards and six touchdowns in 16 games (10 starts) after hauling in 28 of 40 targets for 254 yards and a lone touchdown...
