The Eagles offense is not living up to their potential so far this season. Even with their struggles, fantasy football managers have been able to get decent production out of them. Whether it is a late-game comeback or maybe even potential garbage time, we can see multiple potential Eagles players having a solid fantasy week this weekend. Here's the best way to set your lineups this weekend:
Carson Wentz - Sit
It is sad to admit that Wentz has not put up the numbers of a reliable QB1 this season, and this week will be no different. He is coming off a week where he did not throw an interception, which is sadly just the second game without one. In the past two weeks, Wentz has a combined total of under 20 fantasy points, and in the past two weeks the Browns have played against Deshaun Watson and Derek Carr and neither of them reached 20 fantasy points. Wentz has struggled all season, and this matchup (combined with the forecast of rain all game long) could mean more of the same struggles. For those reasons, I would not start Wentz this week.
Miles Sanders - Start
Last week was an interesting one for Miles Sanders. The Eagles had two rushing touchdowns in their loss to the Giants but were vultured away by Boston Scott and Corey Clement. It would be surprising if that scenario happens again. Eagles running backs saw a combined 19 carries last Sunday, and Sanders had 15 of them for 85 yards. Sanders also had five targets in the game which resulted in two receptions for 10 yards. Without reaching the end zone, Sanders was still able to put up start-worthy fantasy points. This week should be no different against the Browns. We should see double digit carries for #26 on the ground and a few targets through the air. Sanders should be a start in your league whenever he is active, his usage will help him stay as your RB1, RB2, or Flex.
Boston Scott- Sit
Scott had a surprisingly great game for his lack of snaps. Scott only had three carries and one target. The reason his fantasy day was as positive as it was is because of his 56-yard touchdown run. Aside from that Scott, only had two other rushes for seven yards with 11 receiving yards. Scott is touchdown-dependent now, and with the amount of snaps he played last week, he may be too much of a risk to start this week if you have running backs on other teams with better outlooks.
Travis Fulgham - Start
Last week was a disappointing one if you started Travis Fulgham. However, that was the only bad game to this point for Fulgham. He was only targeted five times against the Giants and pulled in just one reception for eight yards. He has proved that he should be this team's top-targeted receiver, and we may see Wentz shift back to him. The Eagles passing attack has not been great all season, but giving Fulgham the main share of the targets may help them trend in the right direction. He has shown in previous weeks that he is still worth starting even if he does not catch a touchdown. His upside is just too bright to have him on your bench. He is a must-start this week even if it is only as a flex option depending on your other receiving options.
Dallas Goedert - Start
Goedert may be the toughest Eagle to predict going into this matchup. In Week 1 he showed us that he can be a top tight end in the league, but after that game he hasn’t really done anything. Factoring in his injuries, we don't really know what Goedert we will get moving forward. The positive news from last week, if you are looking to start Goedert again, is his snaps count. Against the Giants, the Eagles had a total of 67 snaps on offense and Goedert was on the field for 62 of them. It seems Goedert will be heavily featured in the Eagles offense, but that doesn’t mean that he will receive a portion of the targets. It is difficult to predict, but I believe Goedert could be a start this week based on the amount of time he is on the field, we may see the old Goedert back sooner rather than later. The problem will be Zach Ertz potentially returning next week, so this could be the final week you can use Goedert and expect big numbers.
