2. Quez Watkins
Quez Watkins is one of the Eagles’ more polarizing players. While he’s capable of burning defensive backs with his blistering speed, he has a knack for disappearing for a few games at a time.
At a glance, his 2023 campaign was somewhat underwhelming. He only started in eight of the 17 games he suited up for (compared to 12 in 2022), finishing with 33 catches for 354 receiving yards with a trio of touchdowns.
On the other hand, his TD total was a personal best while his 64.7% catch percentage was more than solid. He also got better as the season went on, turning 25 catches into 241 yards and two TDs in his final nine regular-season games compared to an 8-113-1 stat line in the first eight.
For reference, Watkins’ pace in the final nine games translates to about 48 catches, 456 yards, and four touchdowns in a 17-game schedule. Not exactly eye-popping numbers, but still fairly solid for a No. 3/4 WR.
It doesn’t even need to be a long-term extension. Getting Watkins locked down for even two or three years would provide stability in Philadelphia’s WR room, especially with the position being relatively thin at the moment.
