Game Recaps

2010 Week 3 vs DET (3 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)

Baskett had one good catch for 18 yards in double coverage. However, it didn't make up for the other mistakes. In the first, he cost Percy Harvin a 10 yard gain with a holding penalty. After halftime, Favre threw a quick out to Baskett, but he looked downfield before securing the pass and dropped the ball before he could turn up field. In the fourth, Favre hit Baskett on a deep pass, but it bounced off of his hands and fell incomplete.

2009 Week 1 vs CAR (2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Baskett had only two targets and was only on the field in clear passing downs or late in the contest, but he was open deep once but McNabb was under pressure. His performance will be spotty at best and he will not be meaningful in fantasy circles unless another wideout (or two) suffers an injury.

2009 Week 8 vs SF (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Baskett had a couple of chances, but with throws that were tough to catch. He is at best Manning's 5th look, after Wayne, Clark, Collie, and Garcon. Once Gonzalez returns, he will most likely return to complete irrelevance.

2009 Week 16 vs NYJ (2 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)

Baskett replaced Wayne in the third quarter. For fantasy purposes, he's a desperation play at best in week 17.

2009 Week 17 vs BUF (5 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Baskett got on the field and had a chance for a 50/50 deep ball from Painter in the second half, but he couldn't outfight the DB for the ball and it resulted in an incompletion.

2008 Week 1 vs STL (3 / 2 / 102 / 1 rec)

Baskett is clearly seen as a deep threat. Two of his targets were deep, one being a Hail Mary pass to end the half which was incomplete. However, on his 90 yard TD he displayed his fantastic speed with no one from the Rams being even close to him with Baskett still being some 30 yards from the goal line.

2008 Week 2 vs DAL (3 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)

He had two catches for ten yards in the game.

2008 Week 3 vs PIT (9 / 8 / 85 / 0 rec)

Baskett ended up with the best day among Eagle receivers making the most of his opportunities. Donovan McNabb looked for him in the middle of the field, and he was able to take some big hits to keep drives alive. His best play came in the second quarter where he took in a third and long catch which eventually led to the Buckhalter TD score.

2008 Week 4 vs CHI (2 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)

Baskett played a bit role in the teams week four game, managing only one catch for ten yards on two targets.

2008 Week 6 vs SF (7 / 4 / 38 / 1 rec)

WR Hank Baskett did not appear to have full possession of the ball on his first reception which was for 16 yards and on third down but the referee called it a reception. The 49ers did not challenge and the Eagles went on to score a touchdown.

2008 Week 8 vs ATL (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Baskett had a short gain on a crossing route and dropped an easy catch earlier in the game.

2008 Week 9 vs SEA (1 / 1 / 25 / 0 rec)

Baskett was not an important part of the Eagles' passing attack, though his single 25 yard reception was an interesting moment in the game as the question of whether he got both feet in bounds resulted in the Seahawks burning one of their timeouts through a challenge on the play.

2008 Week 10 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 7 / 1 rec)

Baskett's only catch of the night was a seven yard touchdown catch that put the Eagles up 24-20.

2008 Week 11 vs CIN (4 / 2 / 74 / 0 rec)

Despite QB Donovan McNabb launching a career high 58 pass attempts, Baskett was targeted on only four. Even so, he ended the day with more receiving yards than any other Eagles receiver - mostly as a result of a single huge play. Early in the third quarter, Baskett took a fifteen yard pass from McNabb, spun away from his immediate defenders and raced down the left sideline for a 57 yard gain. Only the last Bengal DB with a shot at him prevented Baskett from going in for the score and he was knocked out of bounds at the four yard line.

2008 Week 12 vs BAL (6 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Despite finishing third on the team with six targets, Baskett only managed to pull down one of them for a paltry eight yards. Certainly not all of the fault for this abysmal showing should fall on Baskett as both QB Donovan McNabb and his replacement QB Kevin Kolb were off target for much of the day, but Baskett didn't do all that much to help himself either, as he also contributed some drops.

2008 Week 13 vs ARI (5 / 5 / 42 / 0 rec)

Baskett had a mostly quiet evening, with five receptions for just 42 yards. But he certainly made his mark on one of the receptions, laying out fully to make a terrific diving catch along the left sideline. His legs dragged across the field inbounds as he displayed tremendous concentration in holding onto the football.

2008 Week 14 vs NYG (2 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)

Baskett as well only saw two targets against the tough Giants' secondary, catching both passes for 16 yards. Being used on intermediate routes, Baskett worked the sideline and was able to bring in both of his passes for short gains.

2008 Week 15 vs CLE (6 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec)

Baskett was cycled in as one of many Eagles wide outs. He did see a target in the end zone but it was intercepted at the end of the first half on a great play on a slightly underthrown ball by Donovan McNabb. He was also targeted when DeSean Jackson threw an interception in the red zone. Neither of the interceptions were his fault.

2008 Week 20 vs ARI (4 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)

Baskett managed to catch one pass for 14 yards but McNabb missed him two other times.

2007 Week 2 vs WAS (3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)

Baskett caught a three yard pass inside the Redskin ten yard for his first and only reception in the first half. He caught a first down pass for 13 yards off a nice play action play in the third quarter for his only other catch.

2007 Week 6 vs NYJ (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Baskett was targeted only once, catching his lone target for six yards.

2007 Week 7 vs CHI (3 / 2 / 33 / 0 rec)

Baskett was targeted three times in the game, catching two balls for 33 yards.

2007 Week 9 vs DAL (4 / 3 / 28 / 1 rec)

Hank Baskett played as the slot receiver in this game, and caught three of his four targets for 28 yards. On Donovan McNabb's only touchdown of the game, he found Baskett over the middle for a ten yard score. He was targeted earlier in the game on one of McNabb's interceptions.

2007 Week 10 vs WAS (3 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)

Baskett caught all four or his looks, although the last was taken away by a defensive penalty.

2007 Week 12 vs NE (1 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)

Baskett grabbed his only target of the game on a flea flicker play in the third quarter. He also recovered Philadelphia's onsides kick in the second quarter.

2007 Week 13 vs SEA (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

The closest Baskett came to getting a reception was when he caught a pass out of bounds in the third quarter.

2007 Week 16 vs NO (1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Baskett caught the only pass thrown his way in the fourth quarter.

2007 Week 17 vs BUF (2 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)

Baskett saw action in the second half and managed to catch both passes thrown to him for seven yards.

2006 Week 1 vs HOU (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

2006 Week 2 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 25 / 0 rec)

Baskett caught one ball for 25 yards and a first down on a crossing route in the first quarter.

2006 Week 3 vs SF (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

2006 Week 4 vs GB (4 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)

Baskett's four targets came in the first half. He caught two for a total of 27 yards, the longest of which was a 22 yard gain on the Eagles' final drive of the half.

2006 Week 5 vs DAL (6 / 3 / 112 / 1 rec)

Baskett scored his first NFL touchdown on an 87 yard strike from QB Donovan McNabb in the third quarter. Baskett caught the deep ball on the sideline, then broke a tackle and sprinted to the end zone to put the Eagles up 24-21. Baskett also had two catches for 25 combined yards in the first half. Two of his three other targets were deep balls that he did not have much of a play on, but it did show that he was used as a speed receiver to stretch the field. His 112 yards was his personal best game and the first 100 yard game of his young career.

2006 Week 6 vs NO (6 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Baskett was targeted seven times in the passing game; however he was not able to make any receptions. Several of the passes were not off target, but there were at least three passes thrown to Baskett which should have been caught.

2006 Week 7 vs TB (3 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)

Baskett was the second wide receiver for the Eagles. Baskett had a 13 yard catch in the first quarter and another of 17 yards in the third, both giving Philadelphia a fresh set of downs. His third target was sandwiched between them in the second quarter where he was the intend receiver of a pass that was intercepted by DB Ronde Barber who anticipated the route and scored on the turnover.

2006 Week 8 vs JAX (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Baskett had just one ball thrown to him in Week 8. He ran a deep route in the fourth quarter and QB Donovan McNabb tried to throw the ball about 45 yards in the air as the Eagles had the ball just beyond midfield, but Baskett could not run underneath the ball to make the catch.

2006 Week 11 vs TEN (2 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)

Baskett was targeted twice in the fourth quarter. The first chance came on fourth and short for the Eagles, but the ball was thrown behind him by QB Jeff Garcia and he was unable to adjust. His second target was good for 17 yards and a first down very late in the game.

2006 Week 12 vs IND (3 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)

Baskett caught two of the passes thrown his way. He also threw an interception on a trick play in the first half. Jeff Garcia handed off to him and he threw deep for Brian Westbrook, but the pass was short and intercepted by Nick Harper. Two of his looks came from Feeley, one from Garcia.

2006 Week 13 vs CAR (3 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)

Baskett caught his first target for a gain of 22 yards. He was targeted three more times in the game but did not make any further catches. One target was on a ball that Garcia threw away and it was uncatchable.

2006 Week 15 vs NYG (2 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)

Baskett caught both of his targets. The first was a great leaping catch between two defenders for a 19 yard gain.

2006 Week 16 vs DAL (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Baskett had one target on a short slant early in the third quarter, but it was well defended by the Cowboys. That was his only target of Week 16.

2006 Week 17 vs ATL (8 / 7 / 177 / 1 rec)

Baskett was the main beneficiary of the Dallas loss allowing the Eagles to wrap up the NFC East without a win today. He pulled in his first two targets on the second Eagles drive. The first was a 28 yard out route on the right sideline. The second was an eleven yard hitch in the left flat. He did a nice job of securing the low pass with his hands rolling onto his back to protect the ball. Baskett broke a 17-17 tie when he pulled in an 89 yard touchdown at the start of the fourth quarter. QB A.J. Feeley laid the ball in perfectly on a corner route to the right sideline and Baskett did a great job of turning it up field running away from the defense.

2006 Week 18 vs NYG (4 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

Baskett had one short catch for five yards on third and long (11) in the third quarter. He was targeted four times, including a second quarter end zone target that was more of a throwaway by QB Jeff Garcia who was rolling away from onrushing Giants. Baskett was later open for a 20 yards pickup in the third period but the pass was batted away by SS Gibril Wilson at the last moment.

2006 Week 19 vs NO (3 / 1 / 25 / 0 rec)

Baskett had a better game than his one catch for 25 yards would seem to indicate. He was targeted three times in the first half, starting with a 15 yarder that sailed too high over his head in the first quarter that was almost intercepted. His second target was an improvised pass by a scrambling Garcia who wildly threw the ball in his general direction. The third was finally a completion, good for a 25 yard gain as Baskett was wide open on a third and six. Baskett had two more targets in the second half, but the first was thrown behind him on a third and long. The fifth was the most important, as Baskett did make a 20 yard catch on fourth down and 10 for Philadelphia - but it did not count, as the play never officially happened due to a false start penalty.
