2. Olamide Zaccheaus
Finding a dependable WR3 behind Brown and DeVonta Smith was an underrated need entering the 2023 season. The incumbent Quez Watkins drew plenty of preseason hype and looked to be the favorite for the role, but lacking production and a hamstring injury have taken him out of the running.
That created huge opportunity for veteran Olamide Zaccheaus, who flashed serious potential (2 catches, 58 yards, 1 TD) in the Week 3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
However, the wideout's essentially been a non-factor since that contest. He saw just 5 total targets from Weeks 4-7, which he turned into a paltry 2 receptions and 17 yards combined.
His struggles continued on Sunday (1 reception for 5 yards) despite Hurts and the passing attack enjoying plenty of success. Meanwhile, the recently signed Julio Jones made the first big play of his Eagles tenure, hauling in an 8-yard touchdown catch to give Philly its first lead of the contest.
Jones stepping up in a critical moment and providing immediate help in an area where the offense has struggled just boosts his case for legit WR3 consideration. His signing presented a possible threat to Zaccheaus' role with Watkins out, and nabbing his first score for Philadelphia just ups the pressure.
Zaccheaus should certainly be looking over his shoulder heading into Week 9.
