Kansas City Chiefs WR Chris Conley is expected to see extended action in the third preseason game Friday, Aug. 28. Conley has a chance to rise up the depth chart because WRs Albert Wilson and Jason Avant have been quiet in training camp.
Fantasy Tip: Conley is worth a WR5 flyer late in drafts.
Fri, 13 Mar 2015 14:52:10 -0700
Free-agent WR Jason Avant has re-signed with the Kansas City Chiefs. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Avant likely will not have a starting role with the Chiefs but should have a role in the passing game. He could be an option in the later rounds of drafts or a waiver wire pickup during the season.

The Carolina Panthers will keep six wide receivers with WRs Jason Avant, Kelvin Benjamin, Brenton Bersin, Philly Brown, Jerricho Cotchery and Tavarres King as the projected members of the 53-man roster. The team could still look to pick up a receiver or kick returner off waivers after the final roster cuts Saturday, Aug. 30.
Mon, 28 Jul 2014 16:33:34 -0700
Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) doesn't have a timetable for his return after bruising his left knee, but he is expected to be back in days, not weeks. Head coach Ron Rivera said Benjamin should be back before the end of training camp Aug. 12. So far in camp, Benjamin has looked really good and hasn't dropped a pass during team drills while running with the first-team offense. WR Jason Avant moved up to the first-team offense Monday, July 28, with Benjamin out.
Fantasy Tip: Benjamin's injury isn't serious, but he could miss some valuable time with the starters in camp, especially since he's a rookie. Don't expect too much of Benjamin in his first year in an offense that doesn't have many other legitimate receiving threats.
Sat, 19 Jul 2014 19:47:13 -0700
Carolina Panthers WR Jason Avant likely will serve as the No. 3 wide receiver this upcoming season.
Wed, 25 Jun 2014 09:27:04 -0700
Carolina Panthers WR Jason Avant said he did not approve of his standing with head coach Chip Kelly last season with the Philadelphia Eagles. Avant said he "mostly ran clear-out routes. ... When it came to certain things, we butted heads sometimes -- route running and route technique. So I knew I didn't fit his system."
Fantasy Tip: Avant wasn't the field-stretching type of slot receiver Kelly likes to use. In Carolina, the vet won't be much more than a bye-week replacement type but will have several big games. Good luck figuring out when to play him.
Mon, 23 Jun 2014 19:01:41 -0700
Carolina Panthers WR Jason Avant has earned praise form head coach Ron Rivera for the leadership he has shown to WR Kelvin Benjamin and the team's other receivers. "Jason does things exactly the way you want them – he's a pro," Rivera said. "In all honesty, the thought was that if you could have a couple of veteran guys who have been there and done that around a Kelvin Benjamin, that could be very good for him. And Jason has not just been good for Benjamin, he's been good for a whole lot of guys."
Mon, 07 Apr 2014 15:34:49 -0700
The Carolina Panthers signed free-agent WR Jason Avant (Eagles) to an undisclosed one-year deal Monday, April 7.
Fantasy Tip: Avant is more of a complementary wide receiving piece, but he'll effectively be Carolina's No. 2 wideout opposite Jerricho Cotchery. The Panthers receivers won't have much time to familiarize themselves with Cam Newton (ankle) this offseason, either. Avant will probably go undrafted in most standard leagues.
Sun, 06 Apr 2014 18:26:03 -0700
The Carolina Panthers are scheduled to meet with free-agent WR Jason Avant (Eagles) Monday, April 7.
Sat, 05 Apr 2014 20:39:42 -0700

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 17:24:04 -0700
The Kansas City Chiefs are interested in free-agent WR Jason Avant (Eagles), according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: It would make sense, as head coach Andy Reid is more than familiar with Avant from their days together with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Wed, 05 Mar 2014 12:03:48 -0800

Wed, 12 Feb 2014 12:10:55 -0800

Fri, 03 Jan 2014 10:12:09 -0800

Thu, 02 Jan 2014 09:59:26 -0800

Tue, 10 Sep 2013 09:45:53 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles' offense was efficient and quick in their Week 1 victory over the Washington Redskins Monday, Sept. 9; they ran a play every 22.4 seconds and 53 in the entire game. RB LeSean McCoy had big holes to run through, and WRs DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant and TE Brent Celek were wide open most of the time down the field. QB Michael Vick was very successful running the read-option. However, the Eagles players looked fatigued late in the game, often coming off the field for breathers. Jackson didn't catch any passes in the second half. "The tempo really worked," McCoy said. "I don't think anyone has seen it that fast. We've got to learn. We're learning as the thing goes. Coach Chip Kelly is a great coach. Today is the first time a lot of the guys in the locker room had fun. We couldn't wait to get back out there and have fun."
Fantasy Tip: Philly's offense was downright impressive in the first half. The up-tempo attack should continue to create mismatches in opposing defenses, but as we saw in the second half, is this something that Philadelphia will be able to sustain over a full season? Probably not, but for the time being, it makes all of the Iggles' offensive weapons much more attractive.
Sat, 27 Jul 2013 14:32:09 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles confirmed reports that WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
Fantasy Tip: This will effectively end Maclin's season. Riley Cooper reportedly stepped into his place during practice but probably isn't a better fantasy option than Arrelious Benn (knee) and Jason Avant if all three are healthy. The tight ends could see more targets, but the mix remains complicated with Brent Celek, Zach Ertz and Clay Harbor, and it could be a fantasy mess. This also removes a weapon from either Nick Foles or Michael Vick.
Tue, 09 Jul 2013 16:06:00 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WRs DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and Damaris Johnson are considered locks to make the team. One or two more spots will be filled by Riley Cooper, Arrelious Benn, Ifeanyi Momah, B.J. Cunningham and Russell Shepard.
Fantasy Tip: Benn could be a better keep than Cooper because he can play the slot and outside along with his return experience. Either way, the wide receivers in Chip Kelly's system take a hit from past years in Andy Reid's. Jackson and Maclin are merely WR3s, and these depth players aren't as attractive as fantasy flyers anymore.
Sat, 18 May 2013 09:31:23 -0700

Thu, 06 Dec 2012 05:36:51 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles teammates have been impressed so far with how QB Nick Foles has handled himself in the huddle, particularly how he carries himself with confidence. "He's got poise in there," TE Brent Celek said. "He's just a natural quarterback. Being a quarterback you have to be one of the leaders on the team, and he's got that." WR Jason Avant added, "He's very savvy. He's very calm. He's not as fleet afoot as Mike, but he's very calm under pressure and knows he can get the ball out even though he can't run around."
