Fantasy Player Projections

 
Philadelphia Eagles
LP Field | Sunday, October 24 | 1:00 p.m. EST (FOX)
Pick: Eagles 20, Titans 17
Tennessee Titans
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBKevin Kolb
190 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 2 INT
Kolb should get the start, with the Eagles' Week 8 bye allowing Michael Vick (ribs) one more week of recovery. Whoever starts could have a tough week against a Titans secondary with 10 interceptions to six touchdowns allowed.
RBLeSean McCoy
5 rec, 30 rec yards, 1 rec TD, 45 rush yards, 1 rush TD
McCoy's numbers (21 carries, 64 yards) could have been better if the Eagles hadn't won so convincingly. The Titans should be the best defense McCoy has faced so far, so he could struggle somewhat one week before the bye.
WRJeremy Maclin
5 rec, 80 yards
Maclin scored both of his touchdowns after DeSean Jackson left the game with a concussion, finishing with seven receptions for 159 yards. Maclin stands to gain the most from Jackson's absence, which looks likely this week.
WRJason Avant
5 rec, 50 yards
If DeSean Jackson (concussion) is out this week, Avant moves up to No. 2 on the depth chart. If you need a spot starter on a bye week, Avant is worth consideration.
TEBrent Celek
3 rec, 30 yards
Celek should benefit from one more week of Kevin Kolb throwing him the ball. The tight end's rapport appears better with Kolb than with Michael Vick, though he has been a disappointing fantasy option regardless of who is throwing the ball.
KDavid Akers
2 PATs, 2 FGs
Akers has nine field goal attempts in his last three games, which is solid, except that he made only five of those attempts. It's worth looking on waivers for another kicker with the Eagles playing the Titans this week.
Defense
3 sacks, 1 INT
The Eagles have been solid against the pass with nine interceptions this season. Unfortunately they have been more susceptible against the run (116 yard per game allowed) and are playing a Titans offense that should be able to exploit that fact.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBVince Young
115 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 15 rush yards, 1 INT
It's unfortunate that Young had to leave Monday night's game against the Jags because he was on his way to big game before his knee injury. Double check his status this week, otherwise Kerry Collins will start. Neither are great options against Philly.
RBChris Johnson
2 rec, 25 rec yards, 85 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Any matchup is a good one for Johnson, but this week he faces the NFL's 22nd-ranked run defense. Keep Johnson right where he is in your starting lineup.
WRKenny Britt
4 rec, 50 yards, 1 TD
Britt has one touchdown catch in each of his last four games, despite averaging less than three receptions over that stretch. The 6-foot-4 wideout appears to be the Titans' top target within the red zone.
WRNate Washington
2 rec, 20 yards
For the second straight week Washington caught just one pass. Granted the Titans didn't throw much in a blowout win over the Jags, but the emergence of Kenny Britt and Damian Williams could limit Washington's fantasy value going forward.
TEBo Scaife
2 rec, 20 yards
Scaife led the Titans with four receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown last week. It was by far his best game of the season and could be a springboard to an expanded role going forward. Wait for more evidence before considering a pickup, however.
KRob Bironas
2 PATs, 1 FG
Bironas is now 11-for-12 on field goals this season, and has made seven straight from beyond 50 yards. Keep him in your starting lineup.
Defense
2 sacks, 2 INT
The Eagles have faced some of the more prolific passing attacks in the league this season, and have so far held their own with 10 picks on the season. Still, Philly is averaging over 25 points per game, and should relegate the Titans to your bench.
