Philadelphia Eagles
Mall of America Field | Sunday, Dec. 15 | 1 PM EST (FOX)

Philadelphia Eagles

    1. Nick Foles
    2. Nick
      Foles
      QB
    3. PASS YDS316
    4. PASS TD3
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    All things considered, Foles played well in the snow last week, throwing for 179 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He should thrive against the Vikings, who allow the second-most points per game to quarterbacks.

    1. LeSean McCoy
    2. LeSean
      McCoy
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS137
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS32
    6. REC TD1

    McCoy carved up the Lions for 217 yards and two touchdowns last week. The Vikings have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to running backs.

    1. DeSean Jackson
    2. DeSean
      Jackson
      WR
    3. REC YDS110
    4. REC TD2

    Jackson should be one of the top scorers at the position going up against a Minnesota defense that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to receivers.

    1. Riley Cooper
    2. Riley
      Cooper
      WR
    3. REC YDS101
    4. REC TD0

    Cooper caught three passes for 74 yards last week, and is a strong play against a Minnesota defense that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to receivers.

    1. Jason Avant
    2. Jason
      Avant
      WR
    3. REC YDS40
    4. REC TD0

    Avant didn't have a target last week. That should tell you all you need to know.

    1. Brent Celek
    2. Brent
      Celek
      TE
    3. REC YDS22
    4. REC TD0

    Celek quite simply is not relevant in fantasy leagues.

    1. Alex Henery
    2. Alex
      Henery
      K
    3. PAT4
    4. FG2

    Henery didn't attempt any kicks last week because of the snow in Philadelphia.

    1. Philadelphia Eagles
    2. PTS ALLOWED20
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    The Eagles are a solid stream play this week, especially if Adrian Peterson doesn't start.

Minnesota Vikings

    1. Matt Cassel
    2. Matt
      Cassel
      QB
    3. PASS YDS271
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT2
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Cassel threw for 265 yards and two touchdowns against the Ravens last week. He's a QB2 going up against the Eagles.

    1. Adrian Peterson
    2. Adrian
      Peterson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS84
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS10
    6. REC TD0

    Peterson is a good bet to sit after suffering a foot injury last week.

    1. Toby Gerhart
    2. Toby
      Gerhart
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS42
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS10
    6. REC TD0

    Gerhart would be a high-end RB3 if he starts in place of Adrian Peterson.

    1. Greg Jennings
    2. Greg
      Jennings
      WR
    3. REC YDS81
    4. REC TD1

    Jennings had five catches for 53 yards last week, and could be a decent option in deep leagues against a Philadelphia defense that allows the most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. Cordarrelle Patterson
    2. Cordarrelle
      Patterson
      WR
    3. REC YDS65
    4. REC TD0

    Patterson had his best game as a pro last week, catching five passes for 141 yards and a touchdown. He's a low-end WR3 against a Philadelphia defense that allows the most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. Jerome Simpson
    2. Jerome
      Simpson
      WR
    3. REC YDS53
    4. REC TD0

    Simpson could be worth a look in deep leagues, as Philadelphia has allowed the most fantasy points to receivers.

    1. Blair Walsh
    2. Blair
      Walsh
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG2

    Walsh made both of his field-goal attempts last week and is 24-for-27 on the season.

    1. Minnesota Vikings
    2. PTS ALLOWED34
    3. SACKS1
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    Minnesota has been dreadful against the pass. That makes the Eagles a terrible matchup for them.
