Week 7: at Philadelphia Eagles
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Two games ago, Sam Bradford was in control against the Giants on Monday Night Football, with 26/36 for 262 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown with zero sacks taken. He followed up with 22/30 for 271 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -16 yards against Houston in Week Five. He is very comfortable running the Vikings' passing attack regardless of which receivers are healthy (without Stefon Diggs in Week Five due to a nagging groin injury, he hit Adam Thielen for 7/127/1 receiving on eight targets). Also, Cordarrelle Patterson has been performing as a receiver with Bradford under center, seeing six targets in each of the last two games (six targets for 4/39/1 receiving vs. the Texans; six for 5/38/0 in the Monday Night game against the Giants). Keep an eye on Footballguys.com's Players in the News for the practice status of Diggs later this week - he missed the Monday, October 17 session. The Eagles gave up 18/34 for 263 net yards passing, two TDs and one interception to Kirk Cousins last weekend, while not sacking him at all. Two weeks ago Matthew Stafford had three TD passes against the Eagles (19/25 for 164 net yards passing, with zero interceptions thrown but four sacks taken for -16 yards). They have loosened up quite a bit during October in this phase of the game, and over the past three weeks Philadelphia has averaged 21.8 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (tenth-most in the NFL); and 21.3 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (12th-least); with 5.5 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (ninth-least). To date, Philadelphia averages 207.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with five passing scores given out vs. four interceptions (tied for 14th in the NFL) and 14 sacks (tied for 10th) generated. This looks like a neutral matchup between a steady passing attack and a fading secondary.

2016 Week 5 vs HOU (4 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)
We can take his face off milk cartons now. Wright has only been active one other game (Week 3 against Carolina) and notched his first reception this week as he came off the bench since Stefan Diggs was out. Quarterback Sam Bradford used him mostly when he needed to get the ball out quickly, though two of the four catches Wright had went for first downs.
