Week 8: vs Philadelphia Eagles
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. The return of Carson Palmer continues to produce quality results - he again had two TD passes (he's done so in each of the two games since he returned to action), with 22/31 for 253 yards, with one interception and one sack taken for -11 yards. Michael Floyd is back in the fantasy scene with Palmer throwing the ball - he's seen 10 targets for 7/94/2 receiving over the past two games, while Larry Fitzgerald has handled 11 for 10/119/1. Andre Ellington (18 for 12/98/0), John Brown (11 for 6/84/0) and tight end John Carlson (10 for 6/34/0) have also been involved regularly with Palmer calling the shots again.
The Eagles' pass D is very generous with TDs, having surrendered 13 so far this season, vs. a mere three interceptions (tied for 24th in the NFL) generated. They rank 23rd in the NFL averaging 256.5 net passing yards given out per game, and have 19 sacks to their credit (tied for eighth in the NFL). The Eagles sacked the Giants' quarterbacks eight times two weeks ago (for -43 yards) while holding them to 17/28 for 168 net yards, and zero TDs or interceptions. Two games back, Philadelphia allowed three passing TDs to Austin Davis (29/49 341 yards, zero interceptions thrown, with four sacks taken for -34 yards). On balance, this is a sub-par unit almost all the way across the board despite the good game against Eli Manning and company.
Advantage, Palmer and company.
