QBMichael Vick

Michael Vick

256 pass yards, 2 pass TDs, INT, 42 rush yards

It appears the Eagles are going to stick with Vick for another week. It seems only fair. Vick has suffered through his worst season to date; why not give him a crack at one of the worst pass defenses in football? New Orleans allows 304.5 passing yards per game.

RBLeSean McCoy

LeSean McCoy

89 rush yards, rush TD, 3 rec, 38 rec yards

McCoy hasn't been himself lately. True, he has scored four touchdowns in the last three games, but he has averaged just 2.6 yards per carry. Things should improve against a Saints defense giving up 5.0 yards per carry.

WRDeSean Jackson

DeSean Jackson

5 rec, 72 yards, rec TD

The Eagles have been creative in finding ways to get the ball in Jackson's hands; it just hasn't resulted in fantasy success (one touchdown, one 100-yard game). Maybe a date with the woeful Saints secondary will help.

WRJeremy Maclin

Jeremy Maclin

4 rec, 53 yards

Concerns over an injured hip have gone away, but Maclin still is not meeting fantasy owners' expectations. Philadelphia has shown a commitment to getting its possession receiver jump started, though: He has been targeted 28 times over the last three weeks and could see double-digit looks in this contest.

TEBrent Celek

Brent Celek

3 rec, 34 yards, rec TD

Just two weeks ago, Tampa Bay's Dallas Clark caught five passes, including a touchdown, against New Orleans. Celek has been in a slump, but will be called upon in this contest.

KAlex Henery

Alex Henery

3 PATs, 3 FGs

For Henery, it's feast or famine. The Eagles' offense is up and down week-to-week, which makes the kicker a gamble to fantasy owners. This week looks good, though, as New Orleans allows 2.1 field goal opportunities per game.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

The Falcons exposed the Eagles' secondary last week, and the run defense ranks in the bottom half of the league. Philadelphia no longer owns a defense fantasy owners can count on.

QBDrew Brees

Drew Brees

318 pass yards, 2 pass TDs, INT

Don't confuse the Saints' miserable 2012 campaign with Brees' fantasy record -- he continues to be one of the safest players at his position. Brees has thrown at least two touchdowns in six of seven games and has been held to less than 300 yards just twice.

RBDarren Sproles

Darren Sproles

19 rush yards, 6 rec, 42 rec yards

Fantasy owners have learned to love Sproles the receiver (three touchdowns in his last four games). As for Sproles the rusher … let's just say results have been mixed at best.

RBPierre Thomas

Pierre Thomas

38 rush yards, 2 rec, 18 rec yards

The Eagles give up 110.4 rushing yards a game, but we doubt Thomas will take advantage. He hasn't touched the ball more than 13 times in a game this season, and he has been held to less than 4.0 yards per carry in four of his last five outings.

RBMark Ingram

Mark Ingram

12 rush yards

New Orleans has attempted fewer runs than any team in the league, and Ingram is pegged as the No. 3 back behind Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas. Any questions?

WRMarques Colston

Marques Colston

5 rec, 81 yards, rec TD

Colston ranks among the top-12 wide receivers in touchdown catches and yards per game. Along with Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham, he can go in your lineup without reservation.

WRLance Moore

Lance Moore

5 rec, 64 yards

Fantasy success comes in waves for Moore. One week he's got it, the next he doesn't. He's an attractive play this week simply because the Saints have more weapons than Philadelphia's talented secondary can contend with.

WRDevery Henderson

Devery Henderson

2 rec, 26 yards

Prior to the start of the season, many wondered if Henderson would pick up the slack from Robert Meachem's absence. The answer has been a clear "no."

TEJimmy Graham

Jimmy Graham

5 rec, 73 yards, rec TD

Graham is just now reaching peak condition after an injury slowed him down at the start of October. No, this isn't the 2011 version of Jimmy Graham, but unless Rob Gronkowski is sitting on your bench, who else are you going to put in your lineup?

KGarrett Hartley

Garrett Hartley

2 PATs, 2 FGs

Another week, another subpar score from Hartley. He has yet to reach double-digit points in a game this season. To summarize, this is not the guy you want kicking for your fantasy team.

DEFENSE

INT, Sack

For the first time last week the Saints were involved in a game in which the combined scores of both teams didn't top 50 points. Not a good thing. And the Saints rank in the bottom third in sack and turnover production. Also not a good thing.
