Week 8: vs Philadelphia Eagles

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Stepfan Taylor became a villain for Andre Ellington owners last week, vulturing two scores during the game (12/40/1 rushing with 2/19/1 receiving for Taylor, 24/88/0 rushing with 6/72/0 receiving for Ellington). Though Ellington is the clear lead back and is handling the lions' share of touches week in and week out, he has only two TDs so far this season (105/393/1 rushing with 25/260/1 receiving to date). Ellington is still a valuable fantasy commodity (especially in PPR leagues), but the loss of TDs to Taylor hurt him last week. The Eagles' rush D is ranked 23rd in the NFL in terms of yards allowed per game (124.3) but they have given up just two rushing scores this season. Last week, the Eagles were on bye so they come into this game well-rested and with their bruises and bumps healed up (hopefully) - two games ago they blanked the Giants while allowing 24/86/0 rushing. St. Louis managed 23/125/1 at Lincoln Financial Field during Week 5. This is a good, but not great, matchup for the home-team Cardinals.
