WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Shelton Gibson | Free Agent WR

The Eagles waived Shelton Gibson.

A bunch of teams are cutting down their rosters today ahead of training camp, and Gibson is unfortunately a victim to Philadelphia's likely-COVID-caused roster cuts. Gibson was also waived by the Eagles last year and later landed back with the team during the postseason.

Shelton Gibson | Free Agent WR

The Eagles have signed Shelton Gibson.

Gibson was waived/injured by Philadelphia over the summer, but he lands back with the team that drafted him in 2017. Gibson knows the offense and could get some time in the postseason in a decimated receiving corps.

Shelton Gibson | Free Agent WR

The Eagles waived/injured Shelton Gibson.

Gibson is dealing with an ankle injury and is considered week-to-week, but he'll revert to Philadelphia's injured reserve if he goes unclaimed on waivers. The 2017 fifth-round pick had an uphill climb to make the Eagles 53-man roster.

Shelton Gibson | Free Agent WR

Shelton Gibson makes spectacular catch in Week 5.

Gibson was given an opportunity on a pass deep down the field, and he made a leaping Randy Moss-like catch for 48 yards. It was Gibosn's lone target of the game, but perhaps the big play will help him get more opportunities moving forward. Gibson is not a fantasy option yet, but keep an eye on him.

Shelton Gibson | Free Agent WR

Shelton Gibson doesn't catch a pass in Week 3.

Gibson wasn't targeted in Carson Wentz's return, while Jordan Matthews caught two passes in his first game back with the Eagles. Gibson doesn't need to be owned in fantasy leagues, especially with Alshon Jeffery nearing a return.

Shelton Gibson (knee) is active for Week 2.

Gibson was seen as a true 50/50 for today's game against the Buccaneers, and he'll be out there. He's not a recommended fantasy option for Week 2.

Shelton Gibson | Free Agent WR

Shelton Gibson (knee) is questionable for Week 2.

The second-year receiver has a legit shot to play against the Buccaneers, and he's probably a true game-time decision. This has more real-life implications than fantasy implications, as Gibson shouldn't be in fantasy lineups at less than 100%.

Shelton Gibson | Free Agent WR

Shelton Gibson (knee) did not practice today.

We'll see what happens tomorrow when the official injury report for the game is released, but the second-year receiver seems on the doubtful side of things for Week 2.

Shelton Gibson | Free Agent WR

Rookie receiver Shelton Gibson catches two passes for the Eagles in Week 1 of the preseason.

Gibson had 12 yards on his two receptions. The deep threat out of West Virginia also had a chance on a deep ball that was slightly underthrown, but he couldn't come up with it as two defenders were on him. Despite being a fifth-round pick this year, Gibson isn't a lock to make the Eagles roster.

Shelton Gibson | Free Agent WR

The Eagles select West Virginia WR Shelton Gibson with the 166th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Gibson is the prototypical field stretcher, as he averaged 22.1 yards per catch on 43 catches in 2016. He didn't run as well as expected at the combine, though, not even cracking the 4.4s, which does not bode well for his transition to the NFL. Unless Philly trades Jordan Matthews or Nelson Agholor, Gibson will probably need the team to keep six receivers to make it.
