Week 8: at Arizona Cardinals

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Nick Foles led the Eagles to a 27-0 shutout win over the Giants in Week 6, and then got to bask in the glow of that NFC East victory during the Eagles' bye week. Entering Week 8, Foles is the 18th-ranked fantasy quarterback in the land, with 142/238 for 1,628 yards passing, 10 TDs and seven interceptions thrown, while rushing for 13/53/0 so far. He leans on Jeremy Maclin heavily, having thrown Maclin 61 targets for 28/456/4 receiving to date. Jordan Matthews (37 targets for 23/226/2) and Riley Cooper (37 for 24/217/1) are 2A/2B to Maclin this year; Zach Ertz is also heavily involved with 31 for 19/306/2 receiving to his credit. The Eagles' efficient passing attack should continue to produce solid numbers heading into the meat of the NFL schedule. This week's luncheon will happen in the Cardinals' house - Arizona averages 284.8 net passing yards allowed per game, with 10 passing scores given up vs. eight interceptions (tied-third in the NFL) and seven sacks (tied-27th) generated. The bumbling Raiders were stymied by this defense, though, only managing 16/28 for 164 net yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions, and taking one sack for -9 yards. Two weeks ago Kirk Cousins threw 24/38 for 354 net yards passing, two TDs with three interceptions thrown, and two sacks taken for -19 yards. Most weeks, quarterbacks are closer to 300 yards passing than 200 when facing the Cardinals. Advantage, Philadelphia.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs STL (5 / 4 / 33 / 1 rec)

Cooper had an 8 yard grab that he turned up field for a first down helping to get the Eagles into field goal range. Cooper's next grab was for a mere 2 yards and he could not find any space after the catch. Cooper made a fantastic jump ball catch in the endzone to grab a 9 yard touchdown. This is a good sign for Cooper as he has showed some drops in the endzone the past few games and hopefully his confidence can start to come back. Cooper had another 14 yard catch for a first down but with the Eagles up 13 points in the 4th quarter he ended up running straight out of bounds where he could have downed the play in bounds and ran some clock.

2014 Week 6 vs NYG (7 / 5 / 59 / 0 rec)

Cooper picked up the Eagles first 1st down on the night with an 11 yard grab showing off some quick hands as he snagged the ball out of the air. Cooper found a way to get wide open over the middle of the field for a 14 yard first down catch to help the Eagles continue to move the ball on their first touchdown drive. Cooper caught his next pass on a quick pass over the middle for a modest 6 yard gain. Cooper made a nice 15 yard grab and then followed it up with a 13 yard grab to move the ball to the Giants 29 yard line right before half time to get the Eagles into field goal range.
