Manning had his second consecutive lousy game, 19-of-37 passing for 243 yards, 1 TD and 3 INTs. He's been playing with a bad foot and has a tough matchup against a ball-hawking, blitzing Eagles D. He's a No. 2 fantasy QB here, much better as a flex option or a bye week guy.
While he's eighth in the league in rushing with 464 yards, Jacobs has been a bit of a disappointment to his fantasy owners. He hasn't gone over 100 yards in a game and he only has 2 TDs. Against the Cards, Jacobs had 13 carries for 76 yards and 1 TD. He's still a (low-end) No. 2 fantasy RB against the Birds' 11th-ranked rush defense.
Bradshaw ranks 12th in the league in rushing and has been getting double-digit carries every game, averaging over 5.7 yards per chance. He struggled against Arizona with 12 carries for 32 yards. He's a No. 3 fantasy option, but not the worst choice. If Jacobs gets dinged, he'd be a top option.
Second in the league in catches with 45, Smith has come back to earth a little bit, not having gotten into the end zone in the last three weeks. He's still among Manning's favorite targets, being thrown to 10 times and catching 4 of them for 69 yards. He has become a No. 1 fantasy WR, especially in PPR leagues, but could be downgraded with another touchdown-less game.
Nicks went for a team high 80 yards on 4 catches against Arizona. It was the fourth consecutive game in which he scored a TD. His breakaway speed and big play potential make him an interesting bye week replacement or No. 3 fantasy flier.
The lauded Giants' D (which ranks first in the NFL in YPG) has had two rough games in a row giving up 72 points to the Saints and Cardinals. The Eagles' seventh-ranked scoring offense is another tough matchup. The Giants are more of a No. 2 fantasy defense until they stand strong again.
After the Birds' disaster in Oakland, No. 5 took a step forward against the Skins with his efficient, unspectacular performance. He completed 15-of-25 passes including a 57-yard TD strike to DeSean Jackson. He's a decent option against the Giants, perhaps a little lower on the list than he's been over the years, but still a low-end No. 1 fantasy QB.
An errant London Fletcher knee to the head concussed Westie in the first quarter of the Redskins game. Monitor his status heading to game time, but either he or LeSean McCoy would be a good option against a tough Giants' D that has struggled the last two weeks.
Jackson had a monster week against the Redskins with two very long TDs -- a 57-yard reception and a 67-yard end around. He now has 5 TDs on the year and is a threat to take it all the way every single time he touches the ball. He's turned into a No. 1 fantasy WR because of this ability, even against the tough Giants' D.
Two weeks after his breakout game (6 catches, 142 yards, 2 TD against the Bucs), Maclin was targeted a team-high 7 times against the Skins, catching 5 balls for 53 yards. He certainly warrants a roster spot and could be useful as a No. 3 WR as he seems to be the unequivocal No. 2 WR.
Celek had his worst game of the year on MNF, catching only 3 balls for 8 yards. Before that effort, he'd established himself as one of the top TEs in the league and is still fifth in the league amongst TEs in catches (with 33) and third in yards. He should be started every week.
Akers hit a 44- and a 47-yard FG against the ‘Skins on MNF, one week after hitting field goals of 43, 45 and 45 yards in Week 6 at Oakland. He's 11-for-14 on the season and is always a good option on a high-scoring team.
First in the league in INTs, tied for second in sacks, the Eagles' D has had the pleasure on dining on some of the worst offenses in the NFL. The Redskins fit that mold to a T and the Eagles sacked Campbell a half-dozen times while forcing 3 fumbles and intercepting him for a TD. The Giants have a much better team but, with Eli struggling the last couple weeks, could be a lower-tier No. 1 defense here.
