With the Eagles hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 1 pm at the Linc tomorrow, here are our fantasy recommendations:
Jameis Winston (TB) — The Eagles have held Eli Manning, Cam Newton and Ryan Tannehill to a 12.3 fantasy average over the last three weeks. Winston is a risky play on the road this week.
Mark Sanchez (EAGLES) — We have seen this guy before and it typically is not pretty. But the matchup is favorable with Tampa Bay yielding the seventh most fantasy points to the position, and Sanchez will be busy throwing in Chip Kelly’s offense (11th most passing attempts), which makes Sanchez a worthy streaming option this weekend if you are desperate.
DeMarco Murray (EAGLES) — Tampa Bay held the Cowboys’ McFadden to 32 yards on 17 carries last week, and has not given up 100 yards on the ground since Week 3. A tough matchup for Murray, but his receiving abilities keep him in the RB2 mix.
Doug Martin (TB) – Philly, the league’s fifth worst running back matchup, has been beatable of late, yielding double-digit fantasy points to opposing backs in three consecutive contests. Martin a solid RB2, but expectations should be kept reasonable.
Jordan Matthews (EAGLES) — Just when we thought Matthews had turned a corner, he failed to produce against a generous Miami secondary. Another favorable matchup awaits, but he’s more WR3 material with just one start-worthy game to his name over his last seven contests.
Mike Evans (TB) — Vincent Jackson is sitting yet again, meaning the passing offense will go through Evans, again. He’s an elite WR play as he takes on an Eagles unit sur
