Eagles | Chris Givens released by Philadelphia

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 14:25:51 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Chris Givens was released by the team Sunday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: After an offseason in which he was supposedly making a move to start opposite Jordan Matthews, Givens was among the Eagles' first round of cuts. It bodes poorly for his NFL future that he was unable to last any longer for one of the more receiver-starved teams in the league. It is likely he'll get another chance or two, but Givens' promising rookie season with the then-St. Louis Rams in 2012 will probably go down as his best.

Eagles | Two Eagles on the bubble

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 07:05:12 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle and WR Chris Givens have failed to impress, and they could fail to make the team.

Fantasy Tip: Both were back-end considerations, but Randle was expected to be a PPR option as a possession receiver. They could still make the team and could still become fantasy factors, but the upside is minimal right now.

Eagles | Rueben Randle in lead for WR3

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 05:46:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle is in the early lead for the Eagles' third receiver spot over WR Chris Givens and WR Josh Huff.

Fantasy Tip: Randle isn't a prototypical slot receiver, and Jordan Matthews figures to play the slot most of the time anyway. Randle is a possession guy that could play quite a bit on the outside. He's a WR4 with upside in fantasy. Givens and Huff are afterthoughts unless an injury occurs.

Eagles | Chris Givens holding his own

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 11:58:46 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Chris Givens has put in a solid offseason so far and could challenge WRs Josh Huff, Nelson Agholor and Rueben Randle for playing time, according to CSNPhilly's Dave Zangaro. Givens is known for his deep-threat ability, but Zangaro said Givens has also impressed with his underneath routes so far.

Fantasy Tip: Even with the good offseason he's having, Givens' playing time is not guaranteed. Even when he does play, he is mainly a deep threat. He should only be viewed as a late-round flier in standard leagues.

Eagles | Sam Bradford to work out with teammates

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 10:58:43 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford said he plans to work out with several of the skill players during the first week in July in order to work on their timing leading up to training camp. WRs Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor and Chris Givens are among the players that will be part of the workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford will try to improve his chemistry with some of the receivers before the start of camp. He will be the starting quarterback this season but probably will not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

Eagles | Chris Givens relying on his speed

Sun, 29 May 2016 20:46:25 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Chris Givens said he was told the receiver competition is wide open, and he is hoping his big-play speed will help him make the team.

Eagles | Nelson Agholor should still start

Sun, 20 Mar 2016 11:19:33 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor is still expected to start on the outside in 2016 despite the addition of WR Chris Givens. Agholor was a first-round pick whose development was stunted due to injury last year.

Fantasy Tip: Jordan Matthews is still, by far, the most valuable wide receiver on the Eagles heading into next season. He'll continue in the slot position, though. Agholor, Givens and Josh Huff each provide solid speed on the outside, but none of them should be viewed as more than a WR4 in standard leagues for now.

Eagles | Chris Givens financials

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 13:59:03 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Chris Givens' one-year deal is worth $840,000, including $180,000 in guaranteed money and an $80,000 signing bonus. In addition, $100,000 of his $760,000 salary is fully guaranteed, including a $428,000 preseason split.

Fantasy Tip: Givens could receive more playing time with the Eagles than he would have with other teams. Jordan Matthews is really their only legitimate threat at wide receiver, but Givens should still not be viewed as more than a low-end WR4 or high-end WR5.

Eagles | Chris Givens agrees with Eagles

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 11:15:58 -0700

Free-agent WR Chris Givens (Ravens) agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, March 16.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles really don't have much behind Jordan Matthews on the depth chart, and Givens' best days were with Sam Bradford throwing to him. He could be a WR5 flyer worth taking based on opportunity knocking.
