QBCam Newton

Cam Newton

210 pass yards, 2 pass TDs, INT, 35 rush yards

Newton threw for 252 yards and a touchdown, while also rushing 11 times for 40 yards, against the Buccaneers in Week 11. In Week 12 Newton will face an Eagles team that is a little better against the pass but let Robert Griffin III throw four touchdown passes against it.

RBJonathan Stewart

Jonathan Stewart

55 rush yards, rush TD

Stewart rushed 15 times for 43 yards and a touchdown against Tampa Bay in Week 11 -- his first rushing touchdown of the year. While DeAngelo Williams isn't as big of a threat to steal touches as he once was, quarterback Cam Newton still is.

RBDeAngelo Williams

DeAngelo Williams

30 rush yards, 1 rec, 5 rec yards

Williams had just seven carries for 18 yards against the Buccaneers in Week 11 and he now has just 24 rushing yards in his past two games. Jonathan Stewart is getting the bulk of the action at tailback now, which limits Williams' upside.

WRSteve Smith

Steve Smith

6 rec, 65 yards, rec TD

Smith rebounded from a tough Week 10 by catching five passes for 61 yards against Tampa Bay. The Eagles have a mediocre pass defense, so Smith is worth a look as a WR2 in most formats.

WRBrandon LaFell

Brandon LaFell

4 rec, 45 yards, rec TD

LaFell led the Panthers in Week 11 with 93 receiving yards and a touchdown against the Buccaneers. He's a big gamble each week in fantasy play, as he went without a catch just three games ago.

TEGreg Olsen

Greg Olsen

4 rec, 55 yards

Olsen was a mild disappointment in Week 11, catching just two passes for 42 yards against the Buccaneers. He caught nine passes for more than 100 yards and two touchdowns in Week 10, but the Eagles are tough on tight ends.

KJustin Medlock

Justin Medlock

3 PATs

Medlock missed his only field-goal attempt against Tampa Bay, but he did make three extra points. Medlock has missed his past three field-goal attempts in his past three games. Look elsewhere for fantasy kicker help.

DEFENSE

2 INTs, 2 Sacks

The Panthers allowed 27 points in an overtime loss to the Buccaneers, while recording one sack, two interceptions and a fumble recovery. While they have 12 sacks in their past four games, they have just two in their past two games. They could force some turnovers, however, with the Eagles dealing with injuries to their starting quarterback and running back.

QBNick Foles

Nick Foles

210 pass yards, pass TD, 2 INTs, 12 rush yards

Michael Vick (concussion) is more than likely going to miss another game, so Foles should start again in Week 12. He threw 25 incompletions with no touchdowns and two interceptions in his first start. He should be better in his second stint, but not enough to warrant starting him.

RBBryce Brown

Bryce Brown

65 rush yards, rush TD, 1 rec, 13 rec yards

The rookie could be in for a big Week 12 against Carolina, as LeSean McCoy (concussion) might be unable to play. Brown rushed for 35 yards in Week 11, averaging seven yards per carry. All McCoy owners would do well to grab him as insurance.

RBChris Polk

Chris Polk

12 rush yards

With LeSean McCoy possibly sidelined with a concussion, the Eagles may turn to Polk to back up rookie spot-starter Bryce Brown.

RBLeSean McCoy

LeSean McCoy

0 rush yards

McCoy suffered a concussion in Week 11, and his status for Week 12 is up in the air. Before leaving the game, he rushed for 45 yards and caught a team-high six passes for 67 yards against Washington.

WRDeSean Jackson

DeSean Jackson

4 rec, 45 yards

Jackson caught just two passes for five yards against Washington, but with a rookie quarterback at the helm for his first start, a low output was expected. Expect a better game against the Panthers in Week 12 as Foles and Jackson mesh.

WRJeremy Maclin

Jeremy Maclin

4 rec, 40 yards

With rookie quarterback Nick Foles under center, Maclin's numbers were expected to dip in Week 11. But not all the way down to zero. He was targeted three times, but he had no catches; he could be in for a similar Week 12 showing. Avoid him.

TEBrent Celek

Brent Celek

5 rec, 60 yards, rec TD

Celek caught five passes for 42 yards in Week 11 and was one of the few Eagles who saw his production rise with rookie quarterback Nick Foles under center. Expect Celek to work as a safety net again in Week 12.

KAlex Henery

Alex Henery

2 PATs, 2 FGs

Henery's two field goals were the Eagles' only points in Week 11, as the offense is now dealing with an injured starting quarterback and running back. While Henery has just six field goals in his past four games, he should be better in Week 12 as Nick Foles improves at quarterback.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

The Eagles were able to sack Robert Griffin III twice in Week 11, but they couldn't force any turnovers, and RGIII threw for four touchdowns against them. The Panthers have a similar athlete at quarterback in Cam Newton, so consider this a borderline fantasy defense in Week 12.
