Alshon Jeffery Back in WR1 Territory?

Nov 4, 2016

Alshon Jeffery
.
Alshon Jeffery entered the Halloween match-up with the Minnesota Vikings without a touchdown. Jay Cutler returned to action and Jeffery responded with four catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. Now that Cutler is back, is Jeffery a WR1 again?
.
Jeffrey averaged 63.8 yards from Week 3-7 without a touchdown while Cutler was on the shelf. Those numbers were WR3 at best.
.
While Jeffery didn’t start the season with a score he did have 105 yards against the Houston Texans and 96 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles with Cutler under center. Throw in his game against the Vikings and he has averaged 88 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game.
.
Given his rapport with Cutler, Jeffery should continue to be peppered with targets. He comes out of the bye to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who just got lit up by the Falcons last night. He also has plus match-ups with the Giants, Titans, Niners and Lions.
.
I like Jeffery’s prospects to close out the year in style.
