Week 12: vs Chicago Bears

All WR vs CHI

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Carson Wentz had a quiet game on the stat sheet last week, but his two touchdowns and 168 passing yards were just enough to help rout the Cowboys last week. Wentz looked great around the goal line last week as he scored both touchdowns from within the red zone while converting three two-point conversions. Wentz has now passed for multiple touchdowns in six straight games, owning a 19-to-3 touchdown to interception ratio over that span. Alshon Jeffrey has been more involved within the past few weeks as he has over 60 receiving yards and at least one touchdown in each of his last three games. Jeffery has also led the team in targets for five straight weeks, now the most heavily targeted option for Wentz this season. Zach Ertz was not quite right last week as the Eagles may have let him return a bit prematurely from his hamstring injury sustained in Week 8. Ertz is typically an integral part of this passing offense, but he only managed two receptions for eight yards in what was a very forgettable outing. Prior to last week, Ertz had racked up a touchdown in five of his last six games--so look for him to be more involved as his health improves. The Bears passing defense took a slight step back last week against a Matt Stafford and the Lions, giving up more than one passing touchdown for just the second time this season as Stafford threw for 299 yards. The Bears secondary has been one of the least opportunistic units in the league as they only have four interceptions, fourth fewest in the league. They had a back to back games with two interceptions in each, but outside of that, this secondary has not made many big plays outside of some forced fumbles. Their pass rush has been strong though as they sacked Stafford three times last week, bringing them up to 29 sacks on the year. Akiem Hicks has played a big role in applying pressure on the quarterback as he alone has accounted for seven of those sacks playing from the left side of this line. Hicks will be in for a test this week though as the strength of this very proficient Eagles offensive line has been their right side. The biggest weak spot for the Bears secondary has been Kyle Fuller, and he should be matched up against the Eagles top receiving option in Alshon Jeffrey this week. Jeffrey has both a size and talent advantage over Fuller, and he has scored four touchdowns in the last three games.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 11 vs DAL (4 / 3 / 28 / 1 rec)

Torrey Smith played a possession type receiver in this game as he only averaged 9.3 yards per catch which was the lowest on the season. Slant over the middle for a touchdown made the catch in traffic taking a big hit after the catch. Smith continues to be a secondary option in this passing offense as he only saw four targets which was the most that he has seen since week 5.

2017 Week 6 vs CAR (2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

This is the second week in a row that Torrey Smith has seen his snap count decreasing as it is now down to a season low of 56% of the snaps as the team has been giving more of Smith's snaps to Nelson Agholor and Trey Burton. Smith had just two targets in this game and was largely a non-factor.

2017 Week 5 vs ARI (4 / 3 / 70 / 1 rec, 1 / -3 / 0 rush)

It seems every week Torrey Smith has been near the top in terms of snap counts for this Eagles team, but the production had not been there. That changed this week as Smith finally connected on a long pass from Carson Wentz on a 59-yard post route in which Smith used his speed to run by Justin Bethel in one-on-one coverage with no safety over the top. This was Smith's first touchdown of the season and first catch over 30 yards on the season.

2017 Week 1 vs WAS (3 / 1 / 30 / 0 rec)

Smith was largely a non-factor in this game as he was only targeted three times in this game while completing only one of those receptions in which Torrey Smith sat down in the soft spot in the zone for a 30 yard completion. Smith was on the field for 71% of the snaps in this game, so he will look to increase his production in the upcoming weeks.
