The Eagles host the Cardinals this week at Lincoln Financial Field in a game that could be a bounty for fantasy players who own Eagles. Not only are they big favorites, fantasy projections are calling for big games for a few Eagles.
DeSean Jackson has had a so-so start to the season, but could be primed for a breakout this week against a Cardinals team he's played well against in the past. In two career games against the Cards, Jackson has 12 catches for 168 yards and 2 TDs. Here are his Numberfire projections for week 10.
Brent Celek was written off as a fantasy option after a fairly disappointing 2010 and being largely anonymous over the first five weeks of this season. However, over the past three games he's had a resurgence with 18 catches and a pair of TDs. So if you're in need of a TE this weekend, Celek could be a very strong play.
In two career games against the Cardinals, Celek has 12 catches for 168 yards and two TDs. The Cardinals have been ok against TEs this season however, giving up the 17th most fantasy points against them.
The Numberfire projections for Celek this week aren't terribly exciting, but I still think he could have a solid game and will continue to benefit from increased targets.
3.82 rec for 41.91 yds, 0.34 TDs for 6.26 pts
Finally, Michael Vick could be primed for one of his best weeks of the season. Numberfire has him projected as the second highest fantasy performer of the week.
