Manning completed only 16-of-27 passes for 147 yards last week against Dallas, but three of those completions went for touchdowns. It was his second 3-TD game of the season as he now has 12 TDs in eight games. The Eagles rank eighth in the NFL vs. the pass and playing on the road won't be easy, but Manning is still a worthy fantasy play in Week 10.
Jacobs leads a potent Giants' rushing attack that ranks second in the NFL at 162.6 yards per game. He wore down the Cowboys last week with 117 yards and a TD on 17 bruising carries and now faces an Eagles' defense that ranks eighth against the run (89.0 yards per game). He will get his share of touches and yards, but nothing will come easily in this key divisional matchup.
Ward has had at least one catch in every game this year and continues to get 10-14 touches per game, but it's just not enough for fantasy owners to start him each week. He again was solid last week against Dallas, rushing for 63 yards and a score on 12 carries, while adding 26 yards on two receptions. He will again get 10-12 touches this week against a tough Eagles' defense and will score just enough to be a worthy Flex play.
Burress was limited to three catches for 34 yards last week against Dallas, but should have had a TD catch and was targeted on six passes. He has been a fantasy dud thus far, but he rises for the big games and few are bigger than this week's matchup at Philadelphia. Look for better numbers starting this week.
Smith has suddenly become a nice No. 3 target in this offense, catching 21 passes over the last four games for 207 yards. He scored his first TD of the season last week vs. Dallas as he finished with five catches for 29 yards. He's a worthy bye-week fill-in for Point-Per-Reception leagues.
Toomer caught his second TD pass of the season last week vs. Dallas, but he also finished with only two catches for 26 yards. With the emergence of Steve Smith and the running game, Toomer has become more of a non-factor in recent weeks and is a very weak fantasy play going forward. Sit him this week.
Boss suffered an ankle injury late in Sunday's game and is questionable for this week. He's had two solid weeks for the Giants, catching a TD pass in each game with seven receptions for 64 yards. Watch his status for this week before committing to him against Philadelphia because this is a tough matchup even without a bum ankle.
Carney is among the league leaders in scoring with 78 points through eight games, but the Giants were so efficient last week vs. Dallas that he was limited to 5 PATs and no FG attempts. Look for more FG attempts this week at Philly.
McNabb got off to a slow start in Seattle last week, but then settled down and was spectacular over the last three quarters. He finished with 349 yards passing and two TDs while completing 28-of-43 passes. It will get tougher this week, though, as the Giants rank second against the pass and have 30 sacks in eight games. But look for McNabb to persevere and still finish with solid fantasy numbers.
Westbrook was healthy for a second straight game, but failed to score a touchdown for only the second time this year. He rushed for 61 yards on 20 carries at Seattle and added six receptions for 35 yards. He now faces a Giants' defense that ranks seventh against the run and has allowed only three rushing TDs in eight games. Westy will be the difference-maker in this game as the Eagles pull out a home win.
Jackson has been extremely quiet these last four games, catching just 12 passes for 198 yards and 0 TDs. Last week in Seattle, he finished with just two catches for 20 yards. He's starting to be a liability for fantasy owners despite his strong start and he's no longer a
Curtis looked in prime form last week at Seattle, during only his second game back after hernia surgery. He finished with six catches for 83 yards and now has nine catches for 128 yards over the last two games. This is a tough matchup for Curtis this week, but in PPR leagues he is a worthy start even against the Giants' No. 2 ranked pass defense.
Brown returned from a groin injury last week and caught a 22-yard TD pass. It was his only reception of the day as Brown is not a sure thing going forward. The Eagles have too many options, which makes Brown, Greg Lewis and Hank Baskett all reserve players in fantasy leagues.
Celek started in place of injured TE L.J. Smith and set a team record for receiving yards by a tight end in a regular season game. He caught six passes for 131 yards, leaping over defenders, running by defenders and running through defenders. The Eagles should stick with this known commodity and give up on Smith now. This guy looks good.
The Eagles sacked QB Seneca Wallace four times last week and now have 27 on the season to go along with 8 interceptions and 7 forced fumbles. Look for this defense to step up again in this key divisional matchup at home.
