Warner registered his fifth straight 300-yard passing game last week in the 37-28 loss to the Giants as he completed 32-of-52 passes for 351 yards. But after going eight straight games with two or more TD passes, Warner has now been held to one TD pass in each of his last two games. He now faces a hungry Eagles' defense that ranks in the Top 10 against the pass and desperately needs a win. Somehow he will get the job done, even though the Cardinals have struggled out East before this season.
Hightower has brought a toughness to the rushing game, but he hasn't had much success since his starting role debut in St. Louis four weeks ago. Yes, he ran for two TDs last week against the Giants, but he was held to 21 yards on 11 carries and now has just 78 yards rushing in 35 carries during the last three games. The Eagles rank 11th against the run, so don't expect much success this week on Thanksgiving night.
Arrington has a small role in the running game, but he's still the key back in third down situations. He caught five passes last week for 38 yards and now has eight catches in the last two games. Expect his role to continue this week at Philly.
Fitzgerald went over the 1,000-yard mark last week and became the youngest player in NFL history to notch 400 receptions as he caught five passes last week for 71 yards. Fitzgerald now has 10 straight games with five or more receptions as he continues to be among the best wideouts in the NFL. Fitzgerald hasn't caught a TD pass in his last two games, but look for that to change this week at Philadelphia.
Boldin is the hottest WR in the NFL right now as he has 24 catches for 243 yards in his last two games and 46 receptions in the five games that he's played since his neck injury. Boldin burned the Giants last week for 11 catches, 87 yards and a TD, and he will have success this week even in hostile territory.
After a bummer game at Seattle the week before, Breaston came back and put up his usual numbers, catching six passes for 86 yards last week against the Giants. He continues to be a solid fantasy play in PPR leagues as he's caught 50 passes in his last eight games. Start him again at Philly.
As the No. 4 wideout in this offense, Urban gets lost in the shuffle, but he continues to excel for the Cardinals. He's not a worthy fantasy play just yet, but his five catches for 69 yards last week against New York are indicative of his talents. Keep an eye on him for the future, that's for sure.
Rackers scored 11 points last week against the Giants, his fourth straight game with double-digit points as he now has 94 points on the season. Behind this high-powered offense, Rackers is a solid fantasy play each week.
The Cardinals' defense couldn't get anything going against the Giants last week, failing to force a turnover and finishing with just one sack. Don't expect much more than that this week against an inspired Eagles' team at home.
What a mess in Philly right now. McNabb was benched at halftime of last week's game at Baltimore after throwing two interceptions and losing one fumble, his seventh turnover in the last six quarters. Kevin Kolb didn't do any better and now the Eagles are turning back to McNabb for this prime time Thanksgiving Night game against the Cardinals. Should you start McNabb this week? OF course as he has something to prove to the hometown folks and the Cardinals' pass defense has been awful lately. Look for a big game from Donovan and the Eagles' offense.
Westbrook hasn't topped 100 yards rushing or scored a touchdown in his last four games as the Eagles have gone away from the run more than ever before. In the humbling loss at Baltimore, Westy was held to 39 yards on 14 rushes, while losing five yars on two catches. He then missed Monday's practice with a swollen ankle and is probable for Thursday night's game. He should play, but Westy owners -- and Eagles' fans -- are getting impatient with the diminutive back.
Jackson hasn't scored a TD in seven straight games and times are getting tough for his fantasy owners. He still finished with five catches for 47 yards against Baltimore last week, but he obviously needs a solid McNabb at QB to succeed each week. The Cardinals have given up 25 TD passes so far this year, so look for Jackson to help Donovan out this week with at least one big scoring play and 20 yards rushing.
Curtis had his first stinker game since rejoining the starting lineup in Week 8 as he was limited to just two catches for 12 yards last week at Baltimore. He was benched at the half, but could return to the starting lineup this week. What a mess in Philly.
Celek started ahead of L.J. Smith last week at Baltimore and finished with three catches for 26 yards. His fantasy value is limited right now, but with McNabb back at QB his prospects for a better game this week against a poor Cardinals' pass defense is better.
A solid season by Akers was severely hurt last week at Baltimore as he was limited to just one PAT. He still has 95 points for the season, but that 1 point stinker blind-sided many teams this past week. Look for slightly better results this week at home.
The Eagles' defense was limited to three measly sacks last week at Baltimore, a huge disappointment against a rookie QB. They should bring the heat on Warner this week and could put up big numbers against the immobile QB. Forget about last week and start this defense again this week.
