The Philadelphia Eagles have a gold mine in this guy.
If you’re like most of Philly’s fans, you’re hoping that Travis Fulgham’s streak of outstanding performances doesn’t come to an end, and so far, it doesn’t look like it will. As a matter of fact, it’s safe to say that he has a good chance at becoming the first Philadelphia Eagle wide receiver to eclipse 1000 yards receiving since Jeremy Maclin accomplished the same feat in 2014.
Fulgham can get vertical or fight for contested catches, and that makes stopping him a priority for opposing defenses. Even when extra attention is paid to him by opposing teams, 13 still finds a way to consistently get open for Carson Wentz.
Fulgham already has four touchdowns and 435 yards receiving on the season, and that all occurred in just five games. He also leads the team in receiving. With Fulgham, Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward, and John Hightower as Wentz’s receivers, opposing teams are going to have their hands full with this Eagles receiving corps (finally).
The Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions have to be second-guessing themselves after letting this guy go. The best part about this for Eagles fans is Fulgham is under contract with the Eagles for two seasons, so Birds fans can continue to watch him produce for a while.
