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

Philadelphia Eagles (vs Washington Redskins)

QB Nick Foles: If Foles can get his act together for four full quarters, he'll finish as a top five play. The Redskins will likely give him that chance. ( 219 yds pass; 21 yds rush )

QB Mark Sanchez: ( 8 yds pass )

QB Matt Barkley: ( 3 yds pass )

RB LeSean McCoy: McCoy is going to find a lot of running room against the below average Washington defense. The resurgence of Darren Sproles could really start to wear on McCoy's statistics but he'll still manage to put up elite numbers. ( 90 yds rush; 4.34 catches for 39 yds )

RB Darren Sproles: Sproles is an absolute must start RB2 after the Monday Night performance for the ages. He won't be breaking off as many big plays like that on a weekly basis but just one could be good enough to justify starting him. Chip Kelly may have a new favorite toy. ( 33 yds rush; 3.85 catches for 45 yds )

RB Chris Polk: ( 5 yds rush; for 3 yds )

WR Jeremy Maclin: This slew of steady matchups plays right into Maclin's favor. This should be his best yet. ( 5.69 catches for 76 yds )

WR Riley Cooper: 37 yards in two weeks does not spell explosiveness for Cooper. He can go off any time and gets a really nice matchup against the Redskins. You're relying upon one play though to make his entire stat line. Lots of boom, but more bust than anything. ( 3.69 catches for 44 yds )

WR Jordan Matthews: ( 2.44 catches for 26 yds )

WR Brad Smith: ( for 1 yd )

WR Josh Huff: ( )

WR Jeff Maehl: ( for 3 yds )

TE Zach Ertz: Last week, Foles took too long to get Ertz involved and then went to Celek in the red zone. Hopefully he's learned from both mistakes as Ertz could be one of the best receiving tight ends in the league if used properly. ( 3.81 catches for 61 yds )

TE Brent Celek: B.U.M. BUM. Celek is nothing more than burden for Ertz owners. ( 2.38 catches for 27 yds )

TE James Casey: ( for 2 yds )

PK Cody Parkey: Parkey came through in the clutch last week and makes for a solid play in what should add up to be a lot of total points. ( 2.3 XPs, 1.63 FGs )

Def Philadelphia Eagles: This play all depends on how you view Cousins. Chances are he won't turn the ball over as much as Griffin but those long tries down field could turn into INTs real quick. (, 2.04 sacks, 1 INT, 1.08 Fumbles )



New York Giants (vs Houston Texans)

QB Eli Manning: Manning will be running for his life from JJ Watt all game. Manning is a must sit and if Cruz doesn't show up in some fashion, all New York options should be benched moving forward. This is going to be a horror show. ( 224 yds pass and 1.2 Ints; 2 yds rush )

QB Ryan Nassib: ( 5 yds pass )

RB Rashad Jennings: Hate hate hate the matchup. Given the stat of the Giants all around and the need to throw to play catch up early, Jennings numbers could be dismal. It's difficult to bench him but keep expectations to a medium. ( 64 yds rush; 3.5 catches for 34 yds )

RB Andre Williams: Williams is a red zone threat only. How many times will the Giants be in the red zone against Houston? Exactly. ( 23 yds rush; for 5 yds )

RB Peyton Hillis: ( 17 yds rush; for 5 yds )

WR Victor Cruz: More concerning than his underwhelming role on the team or his large fall off in production is the fact that Cruz has 5 drops in 2 games. Those are Greg Little type numbers. If we don't see something quick Cruz will be riding the pine pony for our fantasy teams. ( 1 yd rush; 6.28 catches for 82 yds )

WR Rueben Randle: Odds on best chance to score. But it'll be in junk time and all of his production relies upon that one play. ( 4.11 catches for 47 yds )

WR Odell Beckham: ( 2.44 catches for 23 yds )

WR Corey Washington: ( for 5 yds )

WR Preston Parker: ( for 1 yd )

TE Larry Donnell: Eli is forcing the ball out early and over the middle to Donnell. If you suffered an injury at the position like Vernon Davis, Donnell could make for spot play. ( 5.08 catches for 57 yds )

TE Adrien Robinson: ( for 3 yds )

TE Daniel Fells: ( for 3 yds )

PK Josh Brown: Measure out Eli's inability to score (Favoring Brown) with Eli's inability to even get them close against Houston (Going against Brown). Your call. ( 1.95 XPs, 1.24 FGs )

Def New York Giants: Expect Fitzpatrick and Foster to hold onto the ball and limit anything for the Giants to pounce on. (, 3.26 sacks )



Dallas Cowboys (vs Saint Louis Rams)

QB Tony Romo: St. Louis isn't as stout on defense as a lot of people thought heading into the year. The matchup favors Romo but the statistics on Romo's throws and downfield capability is a huge mark against him. ( 251 yds pass with 1.08 TDs; 2 yds rush )

QB Brandon Weeden: ( 23 yds pass; 1 yd rush )

RB DeMarco Murray: Feeding Murray the ball and limiting Romo's mistakes is the best formula for Dallas moving forward. Murray will be force fed 25 carries and will continue to produce at a high level. ( 95 yds rush; 3.46 catches for 26 yds )

RB Lance Dunbar: 11 rushes last week but that's because the Cowboys had won the game by the end of the third quarter and they rested Murray. Not enough touches to be looked to. ( 18 yds rush; 1.34 catches for 11 yds )

RB Joseph Randle: ( 6 yds rush; for 2 yds )

WR Dez Bryant: Bryant is the only one of Romo's options that will remain productive consistently. Even still, it took 10 catches to just break the 100 yard barrier. Bryant should see a similar workload here. ( 7.07 catches for 81 yds )

WR Terrance Williams: Romo is having a tough enough time getting the ball to Dez Bryant to even consider starting to look to Williams. Until we see Romo shape up, Williams is a low end WR3 at best. ( 3.75 catches for 48 yds )

WR Cole Beasley: ( 3.74 catches for 36 yds )

WR Devin Street: ( 1.33 catches for 11 yds )

WR Dwayne Harris: ( 1 yd rush; 1.18 catches for 19 yds )

TE Jason Witten: Too talented of a player to consider benching even with all of Romo's troubles. He's about due for a touchdown too. ( 6.24 catches for 65 yds )

TE Gavin Escobar: ( for 11 yds )

TE James Hanna: ( for 4 yds )

PK Dan Bailey: Bailey had a big game in week two as he continues to feed off of Romo's inability to score. ( 2.11 XPs, 1.63 FGs )

Def Dallas Cowboys: Even with the state of flux the defense is in, anyone against St. Louis at this point is an arguable fantasy start. (, 1.79 sacks )



Washington Redskins (vs Philadelphia Eagles)

QB Kirk Cousins: Cousins makes for a QB1 play against the Philly defense in week 3. Look for him to cement his case as a starter in the NFL. The numbers will see a bump if DeSean Jackson can suit up. ( 216 yds pass; 20 yds rush )

QB Colt McCoy: ( 13 yds pass; 4 yds rush )

RB Alfred Morris: If Jackson can't go, the running game will be leaned on a little more. The offense should be clicking as new QB Cousins certainly has more of an understanding of the offense than RGIII did. ( 94 yds rush; for 6 yds )

RB Roy Helu: Cousins probably won't be dumping the ball off short in panic mode as much as Griffin was. He should be grounded until we see how he gels with the new QB. ( 20 yds rush; 1.94 catches for 16 yds )

RB Silas Redd: ( 10 yds rush; for 2 yds )

WR Pierre Garcon: 11 catches for 99 yards in two games is not what we were counting on. Hopefully Cousins can turn his production around. If Jackson misses the game, Garcon could be in for almost 15 targets. ( 1 yd rush; 7.96 catches for 83 yds )

WR DeSean Jackson: Day to day with a shoulder injury. He makes for a good start with Cousins at quarterback and facing his old team adds some more determination. Just have another option ready if his names ends up on the inactive list Sunday. ( 4.67 catches for 47 yds )

WR Andre Roberts: Had a solid game but we need to see it more than once to bench other proven options for him. If the game goes back and forth though he could see some additional looks, especially if DJax can't suit up. ( 1 yd rush; 3.15 catches for 38 yds )

WR Santana Moss: ( 1 yd rush; 2.78 catches for 29 yds )

WR Ryan Grant: ( 1.3 catches for 11 yds )

WR Aldrick Robinson: ( 1.11 catches for 20 yds )

TE Jordan Reed: Will probably sit this one out with another 'fluke' injury.

TE Logan Paulsen: ( 4.05 catches for 49 yds )

TE Niles Paul: Cousins liked what he saw from Paul and Jackson could be shelved. He makes for a very interesting play in week 3. ( 5 catches for 50 yds )

PK Kai Forbath: Forbath could actually pay of for owners with the offense working well with Cousins. ( 2 XPs, 1.26 FGs )

Def Washington Redskins: Unless Foles and company completely wet the bed here, the Washington defense will be exposed for the below average defense they are. Even with Brandon 'Helmet to helmet' Meriweather back in action the Redskins could be watching the numbers on the Eagles' jerseys enter the end zone. ( 2.44 sacks )
