Week 7: vs Minnesota Vikings

All WR vs MIN

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Carson Wentz flamed out in Washington last weekend, throwing just 11/22 for 179 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions thrown, with five sacks taken for -34 yards. Though the Eagles scored 20 points, the TDs were by the defense and special teams, not the offense. With Wentz having a bad game, the Eagles' receivers didn't thrill fantasy owners - Jordan Matthews managed seven targets for 3/75/0 receiving; Nelson Agholor posted four for 3/34/0, while Dorial Green-Beckham (four for 1/23/0) and Zach Ertz (three for 1/22/0) both only hauled in a single pass. It was a forgettable performance in a key divisional game. We'll see if the offense can regroup for Week Seven. After five games played, the Vikings rank sixth in the NFL averaging 209.8 passing yards allowed per game, with just four passing scores given out vs. seven interceptions (tied for fourth in the NFL) and 19 sacks (tied for third in the league) generated to date. Brock Osweiler couldn't get much going in Minnesota during Week Five (19/42 for 155 net yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with four sacks taken for -29 yards) as Minnesota won 31-13. Over the last three weeks, Minnesota has allowed the least fantasy points in the NFL to opposing quarterbacks on a per-game basis (12.1); the third-least fantasy points to opposing wide receivers (13.7); and the tenth-least fanasy points per game to opposing tight ends (5.6). These guys are a stalwart defense in this phase of the game. This looks like a bad matchup for the faltering Eagles' offense.
