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

Philadelphia Eagles (vs San Francisco 49ers)

QB Nick Foles: San Fran isn't the ideal matchup but given how hot Foles has been to kick off the year, you can't bench him. There'll be plenty of action for Foles, just don't expect as many huge gainers against the 49ers that they saw against the Redskins. ( 269 yds pass with 2 TDs; 18 yds rush )

QB Mark Sanchez: ( 6 yds pass )

QB Matt Barkley: ( 4 yds pass )

RB LeSean McCoy: Where it's Chip spreading the ball around or the surprising role that Sproles is playing, McCoy is not producing like the first pick in the fantasy draft should produce. That's not to say he's fallen off but it would be nice to see more touches this week, especially given the defense he's facing. ( 81 yds rush and 1 TD; 4 catches for 33 yds )

RB Darren Sproles: Sproles is definitely going to be a hit and miss type of play with week three being a miss. He could be in for more work in the passing game though if the 49ers smother Jeremy Maclin. ( 29 yds rush; 4 catches for 41 yds )

RB Chris Polk: ( 4 yds rush; 1 catch for 3 yds )

WR Jeremy Maclin: The offense was supposed to run through Ertz but it's clear that it revolves around Maclin. Even with this less than ideal matchup, Maclin makes for WR1 start with high upside. ( 7 catches for 101 yds and 1 TD )

WR Riley Cooper: Cooper has completely vanished on Chip Kelly's radar. Three stinker games in a row means it's not only time to bench Cooper but to cut him from your roster out right. The matchup makes things even worse. ( 4 catches for 50 yds )

WR Jordan Matthews: The two touchdown game was nice to see but the he'll face a stronger defensive force this week. Matthews is a spot play until he establishes multiple productive games. ( 3 catches for 31 yds )

WR Brad Smith: ( 1 catch for 1 yd )

WR Josh Huff: ( )

WR Jeff Maehl: ( 1 catch for 4 yds )

TE Zach Ertz: Ertz got lost in the shootout last week which raises a flag or two. He should be counted on more in high percentage plays against the 49ers as Foles gets the ball out early and avoids interceptions. ( 4 catches for 64 yds and 1 TD )

TE Brent Celek: ( 2 catches for 28 yds )

TE James Casey: ( 1 catch for 4 yds )

PK Cody Parkey: 8 field goals in three games is nothing to shake a stick at. He could be even more active if San Fran keeps Foles and McCoy out of the end zone. ( 2 XPs, 2 FGs )

Def Philadelphia Eagles: Even with Colin Kaepernick and the offense hitting some speed bumps, it is still unwise to bet against them. ( 1 sack, 1 INT, 1 Fumble )



New York Giants (vs Washington Redskins)

QB Eli Manning: A lot of people jumped on board after Manning had a solid game against Houston last week. It's still too soon to fully buy in but if you've been demolished at the position, at least the matchup plays in his favor. ( 191 yds pass with 1 TD and 1 Int; 2 yds rush )

QB Ryan Nassib: ( 4 yds pass )

RB Rashad Jennings: 34 carriers in week three is a loud enough indication that the Giants are moving away from Eli as the focal point and focusing on the run game. Jennings should go over the 100 mark again this week. ( 81 yds rush and 1 TD; 3 catches for 27 yds )

RB Andre Williams: ( 23 yds rush; 1 catch for 4 yds )

RB Peyton Hillis: ( 15 yds rush; 1 catch for 4 yds )

WR Victor Cruz: Last week was the best we've seen from Cruz in a while but we really need to see consistency before reestablishing him as WR1. Luckily for Cruz, he faces a defense that was below average to begin with and who lost multiple contributors last week. ( 1 yd rush; 6 catches for 84 yds )

WR Rueben Randle: In a PPR format, Randle could be a WR3 this week coming off a five catch game against Houston. Those five catches only registered 27 yards but he'll see more room to roam against the Redskins. ( 4 catches for 44 yds )

WR Preston Parker: ( 1 catch for 3 yds )

WR Odell Beckham: ( 2 catches for 19 yds )

WR Corey Washington: ( 1 catch for 4 yds )

TE Larry Donnell: Donnell has established himself as one of Eli's favorite targets. That's kind of like kissing your sister but at least the matchup is favorable. ( 5 catches for 56 yds )

TE Daniel Fells: ( 1 catch for 6 yds )

TE Adrien Robinson: ( 1 catch for 3 yds )

PK Josh Brown: The offense looked more in sync last week so Brown could be in for more work moving forward. ( 2 XPs, 1 FG )

Def New York Giants: Cousins and crew aren't turnover machines and neither is the Giants' defense. New York looks to let up a ton of points this week leaving little upside. ( 3 sacks, 1 INT )



Dallas Cowboys (vs New Orleans Saints)

QB Tony Romo: One of the only times this year where you'll be urged to start Romo without major hesitation. Hopefully Brees and Romo will make this a 50 point contest. ( 233 yds pass with 2 TDs and 1 Int; 3 yds rush )

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

RB DeMarco Murray: This should be a lock for Murray to have his fourth consecutive 100 yard game. Murray will likely help out in the passing game more this week too, making him that much more valuable. He's a stud RB1 without question and needs to be in all line ups. Duh! ( 99 yds rush and 1 TD; 4 catches for 28 yds )

RB Lance Dunbar: ( 15 yds rush; 1 catch for 9 yds )

RB Joseph Randle: ( 6 yds rush; 1 catch for 1 yd )

WR Dez Bryant: Romo will be ranked the high at the weekly QB ranks which means that Bryant should be ranked high too. His workload of 7 catches a game should register more production against the feeble Saints secondary. ( 7 catches for 78 yds and 1 TD )

WR Terrance Williams: Williams should see an increase in work this week as the Giants will surely let up 1,000 points to Brees and will need to battle back. ( 3 catches for 43 yds )

WR Cole Beasley: ( 3 catches for 31 yds )

WR Devin Street: ( 1 catch for 9 yds )

WR Dwayne Harris: ( 1 yd rush; 1 catch for 15 yds )

TE Jason Witten: If there were ever a week you'd expect Witten to do big things, this would be it. He's a must start unless you own Jimmy Graham. ( 7 catches for 74 yds )

TE Gavin Escobar: ( 1 catch for 11 yds )

TE James Hanna: ( 1 catch for 5 yds )

PK Dan Bailey: Points galore here in week four. ( 3 XPs, 2 FGs )

Def Dallas Cowboys: Laughable option against Brees and the high powered Saints offense. Laughable against mostly anyone but especially this week. ( 1 sack, 1 INT )



Washington Redskins (vs New York Giants)

QB Kirk Cousins: Cousins is a beastly QB1 that was a fantasy free agent until last week. Cousins will look to pad his stats against another divisional foe that has yet to figure out how to play defense. Huge upside this week. ( 250 yds pass with 2 TDs and 1 Int; 22 yds rush )

QB Colt McCoy: ( 12 yds pass; 5 yds rush )

RB Alfred Morris: Morris got a little banged up last week so monitor the health alerts up until game time. As long as he's good to go, he makes for a top end start as usual, but even more so given they are playing the Giants. ( 102 yds rush and 1 TD; 1 catch for 6 yds )

RB Roy Helu: Only if Morris were to miss the game would Helu make for a smart play. At this point he just doesn't see enough work as evidenced by his 2 touches in week three. ( 20 yds rush; 2 catches for 23 yds )

RB Silas Redd: ( 9 yds rush; 1 catch for 2 yds )

WR Pierre Garcon: The week three Garcon is the one we were expecting on draft day. 11 catches for 138 yards, chipping away at elite numbers is exactly what Garcon excels at. Garcon's value gets a huge boost with Cousins under center. ( 1 yd rush; 8 catches for 82 yds )

WR DeSean Jackson: Has motivation been the issue for Jackson to open the season? He's gone from 62 yards, down to 19, to suddenly surging back against his old team with a shoulder injury to the tune of 117 yards with a touchdown. Interesting. Anyhow, the Giants' secondary is garbage making Jackson a very high ceiling play. ( 4 catches for 51 yds )

WR Andre Roberts: Roberts has contributed nicely on the field but his real life effectiveness doesn't help fantasy owners at this point. ( 1 yd rush; 3 catches for 34 yds )

WR Ryan Grant: ( 1 catch for 8 yds )

WR Aldrick Robinson: ( 1 catch for 17 yds )

WR Santana Moss: Three weeks without a catch. Soon to be four. ( 1 yd rush; 2 catches for 22 yds )

TE Niles Paul: ( 2 catches for 22 yds )

TE Logan Paulsen: ( 4 catches for 46 yds )

PK Kai Forbath: Forbath will pay dividends for owners this week against the Giants. ( 2 XPs, 2 FGs )

Def Washington Redskins: Eli can always be counted on to help a defense out at least once. If Washington keeps up early and the Giants get away from the run, the Redskins could force multiple turnovers. ( 3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble )
