Week 13: vs Philadelphia Eagles
All QB vs PHI
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Without A.J. Green (hamstring, out) or Giovani Bernard (IR), Andy Dalton had a rough outing in Baltimore, taking three sacks for -22 yards (one was a strip-sack causing one of his four fumbles - he lost two on the day) while throwing 26/48 for 283 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions. Tyler Eifert came back from the fantasy walking dead with 11 targets for 5/68/1 receiving, while Tyler Boyd (nine for 5/62/0) and Jeremy Hill (six for 6/61/0) also went over 60 yards receiving on the day. Brandon Lafell saw nine targets but only managed 3/38/0 receiving.
The Eagles' pass defense coughed up 30/39 for 313 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions to Aaron Rodgers and company, while sacking him zero times. Last week, the Seahawks posted 19/32 for 287 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with one sack taken for zero yards. The Eagles have been soft in this phase of the game in recent weeks - from Week Nine to Week 12 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 14 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Philadelphia has averaged 23.9 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (10th-most in the NFL); and 32.8 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (second-most); with 4.8 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (fourth-least).
This looks like a neutral matchup for Dalton and the wide receivers, even though the team has a low chance of getting Green back in action due to his serious hamstring injury. If Green somehow makes it back in time for the game, upgrade this matchup to 'great'.
