The Philadelphia Eagles have plenty of fantasy options at skill positions, but with four top-100 fantasy prospects at wide receiver, the Eagles wideouts look to be strong options come draft time.

Not surprisingly, wideouts DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin are among ProFootballWeekly's top 35 options at the WR position for the 2012 season.

Last season, Jackson caught 58 balls for 961 yards and four touchdowns while Maclin grabbed 63 passes thrown his way for 859 yards and five touchdowns.

A bit further down the list, two other Eagles wide receivers Jason Avant (No. 75) and Riley Cooper (No. 100) give the Eagles four solid options, especially in deeper fantasy football leagues.

Of course, much of the production potential for wide receivers is often a direct result of the quarterback throwing them the ball, and Eagles quarterback Michael Vick looks to provide all four of his wideouts with ample opportunity to catch the ball.
