Greg Ward Player Overview

What You Need to Know:

  • Ward actually led the Eagles in targets last season (79), though he saw just 13.2% of the team’s total attempts. That ranked 47th among all wideouts in target share.
  • Ward ranked 132nd among 153 qualifiers in yards per catch (7.9) and 145th in yards per target (5.3).
  • According to Pro Football Reference, his 5.6 average depth of target ranked 167th among 227 qualifiers across positions.
  • Philly added DeVonta Smith with the 10th pick of the NFL Draft, but Ward still looks in good shape to hit the season among the top 3 at WR.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Even with DeVonta Smith arriving, Ward remains in a good situation for opportunity. A shallow WR depth chart is topped by a rookie and a 2nd-year player (Jalen Reagor) who will reach September unproven in the pros. HC Nick Sirianni reportedly plans to move his WRs around, so we might see Ward outside a bit more than the 13.7% of his snaps he spent there last season. That’s not necessarily a good thing for a small-ish, slow-ish receiver. Ward will always be a volume-dependant fantasy performer. He figures to slot behind at least Dallas Goedert, Jalen Reagor and DeVonta Smith in targets this season -- with Miles Sanders and Zach Ertz (if he’s not traded) potentially ahead as well. Ward won’t be worth a look in most fantasy formats.
