Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward could start the season in a backup or special team role. Ward was the main slot receiver for the Eagles last year, but the emergence of Quez Watkins in training camp and preseason games may push Ward into the fourth spot on the Eagles wide receiver depth chart. Only one of Ward and Watkins will maintain fantasy value this season, and while it remains to be seen which one it will be, neither will have the kind of upside to be worth the low floor. Ward and Watkins should only be rostered in much deeper formats as a wait-and-see option. They should not be in any Week 1 fantasy starting lineups.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward only caught one pass in a Week 17 loss to the Washington Football Team. He was targeted three times, but only came down with the one catch for six yards. He did also throw a pass to Travis Fulgham, who caught it for a 15-yard gain. Throughout the season, Ward proved that a guy who is a key offensive player at a skill position on an NFL team doesn't always turn into a guy with starting value in fantasy football. He'll return to a similar role next year but still won't likely be much more than an end-of-bench option in PPR leagues.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward offers little upside in a Week 17 contest against the Washington Football Team. Ward caught two touchdown passes two weeks ago despite gaining a total of 15 yards and followed that up with two catches for 27 scoreless yards last week.

He is only fantasy viable if he scores a touchdown, and that tends to be less likely against a strong Washington defense fighting for a playoff spot.
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...
