NFC East Player Analysis
Patrick White, FantasySharks.com, Staff Writer

Philadelphia Eagles (vs Dallas Cowboys)

QB Mark Sanchez: At Dallas on a national televised game is added pressure for a player with a poor track record under bright lights. The saving grace for Sanchez heading into the game is that Eli looked like an elite QB against Dallas, which is a shot at the Cowboys defense more than any sort of bravado for Manning. ( 280 yds pass with 2 TDs and 1 Int; 7 yds rush )

QB Matt Barkley: ( 40 yds pass; 2 yds rush )

RB LeSean McCoy: McCoy finally found how to use his legs for elite production as he went off in a huge way against the Titans. McCoy should be in all lineups as your top pick could make the difference between your playoffs and your losers bracket. ( 97 yds rush; 3 catches for 26 yds )

RB Darren Sproles: Since returning from injury, Sproles' production has fallen way off from where it was at the beginning of the season. Adding to that notion, it seems that McCoy is finally back to full form, further dropping Sproles' value. The touchdowns from in close help but things aren't overly optimistic this week. ( 27 yds rush; 3 catches for 27 yds )

RB Chris Polk: ( 8 yds rush; 1 catch for 4 yds )

WR Jeremy Maclin: Maclin has taken a bit of a hit with the quarterback change but offers too much potential to go off to overthink the situation. This could turn into a back and forth affair where Maclin becomes a main benefactor. ( 7 catches for 99 yds and 1 TD )

WR Jordan Matthews: The Eagles will need to score a ton to stay in this and Sanchez has an obvious chemistry with Matthews. He offers a lot of potential value this week but be careful as the Eagles could easily go in a different direction. ( 5 catches for 53 yds and 1 TD )

WR Riley Cooper: ( 4 catches for 46 yds )

WR Brad Smith: ( 1 catch for 3 yds )

WR Josh Huff: ( 1 catch for 5 yds )

WR Jeff Maehl: ( 1 catch for 4 yds )

TE Zach Ertz: The snaps just aren't there. According to Ertz, Jimmy Graham wouldn't produce in these circumstances. Ouch. ( 3 catches for 43 yds )

TE Brent Celek: ( 3 catches for 37 yds )

TE James Casey: ( 1 catch for 5 yds )

PK Cody Parkey: Indoors in a high scoring game is all you need to know. ( 2 XPs, 1 FG )

Def Philadelphia Eagles: Special teams and defensive touchdowns keep on coming in. One play for the Eagles can lead you to fantasy victory. ( 4 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble )



New York Giants (vs Jacksonville Jaguars)

QB Eli Manning: Manning had one of best games of the year last week against the Cowboys as New York was playing for their entire season. They won't have that fiery edge this week but likely won't need it against the hapless Jags. Eli could be a wildcard type of play that vaults teams into the playoffs as long as Eli can avoid the pass rush. ( 238 yds pass with 2 TDs and 1 Int; 3 yds rush )

QB Ryan Nassib: ( 11 yds pass )

RB Rashad Jennings: The Giants are already planning for 2015 as their season is officially over. They'll be looking to see what they want to build around moving forward. They now know that they have a stud in Beckham but they would be wise to force feed Jennings to see if he's a stop gap option or a long term producer. The matchup is favorable and you've waited for weeks to get him back, you may as well utilize him against the Jaguars. ( 70 yds rush; 4 catches for 29 yds )

RB Andre Williams: He will get a few touches but not enough to make a good fantasy start. ( 36 yds rush; 1 catch for 8 yds )

WR Odell Beckham: His size, speed, hands, and production have Beckham looking like the New York version of Dez Bryant. He's a weekly start as he has the potential to completely take over a game. The matchup against Jacksonville has the upside of a monstrous outing. ( 1 yd rush; 6 catches for 79 yds and 1 TD )

WR Rueben Randle: The passing game will be active but it'll likely flow through Beckham. ( 6 catches for 67 yds )

WR Preston Parker: ( 3 catches for 32 yds )

WR Corey Washington: ( 1 catch for 8 yds )

TE Larry Donnell: All of his production hinges on a single score. He could be on blocking duty all day as the Jags pass rush is actually very effective. ( 4 catches for 44 yds and 1 TD )

TE Daniel Fells: ( 1 catch for 13 yds )

TE Adrien Robinson: ( 1 catch for 4 yds )

PK Josh Brown: The matchup offers offensive potential but it is a stretch play. ( 2 XPs, 1 FG )

Def New York Giants: The Jags will likely donate some statistics to the Giants. It's the season of giving and the Giants will take all Jacksonville will offer. ( 2 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble )



Dallas Cowboys (vs Philadelphia Eagles)

QB Tony Romo: Romo had his best game of the season last week against a fired up Giants team. Actually, it was really only the second half of the game that made the week for Romo as he threw 3 TDs after the half. Not a lot of rest this week given the Thanksgiving game is a little troublesome as Romo usually rests mid week. He's still a top fantasy option this week but it's difficult to imagine the Eagles bottling up Murray the way the Giants did. ( 249 yds pass with 2 TDs and 1 Int; 2 yds rush )

QB Brandon Weeden: ( 28 yds pass )

RB DeMarco Murray: After being held in check by the Giants, look for Dallas to get back to basics and feed Murray over and over again. Murray could actually see even more work as Dallas looks to avoid strip sacks and interceptions returned for TDs. ( 117 yds rush and 1 TD; 4 catches for 34 yds )

RB Joseph Randle: ( 19 yds rush; 1 catch for 7 yds )

RB Lance Dunbar: ( 8 yds rush; 1 catch for 18 yds )

WR Dez Bryant: Bryant has entered an animalistic mode where he paces on the sideline, yells at everyone in ear shot, demands the ball, and then dominates. No one on the Eagles defense is ready for what Dez has in store for America on Thanksgiving. ( 8 catches for 99 yds and 1 TD )

WR Terrance Williams: The big downfield play hasn't been there for weeks. Williams could take one all the way but it is a very large gamble. ( 3 catches for 39 yds and 1 TD )

WR Cole Beasley: ( 3 catches for 33 yds )

WR Devin Street: ( 1 catch for 4 yds )

WR Dwayne Harris: ( 1 catch for 12 yds )

TE Jason Witten: Two touchdowns over two weeks is a lot to like. This should be a high scoring duel as all Dallas options should be active on Turkey day. ( 5 catches for 58 yds and 1 TD )

TE Gavin Escobar: ( 1 catch for 10 yds )

TE James Hanna: ( 1 catch for 5 yds )

PK Dan Bailey: Bailey has been one of the best kickers this year and nothing looks to change here. ( 3 XPs, 1 FG )

Def Dallas Cowboys: Sanchez offers the potential to both light up the scoreboard and also butt fumble turnovers away. Dallas will likely see a balance of both. ( 2 sacks, 1 INT )



Washington Redskins (vs Indianapolis Colts)

QB Colt McCoy: Gets the start and did play fiery the times that he was in a starting role. The Redskins will be forced to throw to keep up with the Colts but we can't help but think that there are a lot better options this week. ( 232 yds pass with 1 TD and 1 Int; 15 yds rush )

QB Robert Griffin III: Benched. ( 68 yds pass; 9 yds rush )

QB Kirk Cousins: ( 30 yds pass )

RB Alfred Morris: The fall of the passing game had lead to the resurrection of Morris. The matchup is very appealing as Morris offers top fantasy production this week. ( 96 yds rush and 1 TD; 1 catch for 11 yds )

RB Roy Helu: ( 17 yds rush; 3 catches for 35 yds )

RB Silas Redd: ( 4 yds rush; 1 catch for 1 yd )

RB Darrel Young: ( 2 yds rush; 1 catch for 9 yds )

WR Pierre Garcon: 55 yards and no touchdowns over the last 3 weeks? Save for the matchup, there isn't a lot to like here. ( 7 catches for 68 yds )

WR DeSean Jackson: Morale may be down but Djax can still make a day out of a single catch. He's become more of a risk but the reward is still there. ( 5 catches for 86 yds )

WR Andre Roberts: ( 1 yd rush; 3 catches for 30 yds )

WR Ryan Grant: ( 1 catch for 3 yds )

WR Aldrick Robinson: ( 1 catch for 9 yds )

WR Santana Moss: ( 2 yds rush; 2 catches for 17 yds )

TE Jordan Reed: Outside of Morris and maybe Djax, all Washington options should be sent to the dump. ( 4 catches for 40 yds )

TE Niles Paul: ( 3 catches for 30 yds )

TE Logan Paulsen: ( 1 catch for 11 yds )

PK Kai Forbath: No thanks. Not in a game that will require the Redskins to 'go for it' instead of settling for the field goal. ( 2 XPs, 1 FG )

Def Washington Redskins: Luck is going to have a fantasy field day here. Washington is a laughable option. ( 2 sacks, 1 Fumble )
