Week 3: vs Detroit Lions
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The injury bug bit the Philadelphia Eagles' receiving unit throughout week two, as the team lost Alshon Jeffrey, DeSean Jackson, and Dallas Goedert for the matchup against Atlanta. In week three, Alshon Jeffrey's status is in doubt, and in his place rookie, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside will likely step into the starting lineup. The Eagles drafted Arcega-Whiteside, a physically-gifted jump-ball specialist from Stanford, in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The rookie was unimpressive in his first crack at significant playing time in the NFL, and expectations for his production in the short-term should be tempered. Additionally, DeSean Jackson is unlikely to see the field in week three. In Jackson's place, Mack Hollins is poised to make his first career start. Hollins, a third-year receiver, produced 5 catches for 50 yards on 8 targets in what was effectively his first career start against the Falcons. In the absence of two key contributors, Carson Wentz primarily utilized Nelson Algoholor and Zach Ertz through the air, as he targeted the duo 11 and 16 times, respectively. Philadelphia's offensive line entered the season as one of the league's best, and the first two weeks of the 2019 season have solidified this ranking. Philadelphia's passing attack, when healthy, is a strength of this roster. In week three, battling various injuries, Doug Pederson and the rest of the coaching staff have their work cut out for them trying to construct a dangerous passing attack. The Detroit Lions opened the season against the Arizona Cardinals' up-tempo offense in both quarterback Kyler Murray and head coach Kliff Kingsbury's first taste of NFL action. Murray finished with 308 passing yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception on the day: a stat line driven by an extremely pass-heavy comeback attempt. In week two, Detroit faced off with a much slower, and depleted, Los Angeles Chargers passing attack. Philip Rivers posted 293 yards, 0 touchdowns, and 1 interception on 36 passing attempts in the game. Rivers, however, entered the game without his number-one tight end, Hunter Henry, and a hampered number-two wide receiver, as Mike Williams played through a knee injury. The Detroit pass-rush has been perfectly average through two weeks, generating middling-pressure numbers on opposing quarterbacks. On the back-end, Detroit fields one of the league's best cornerbacks, Darius Slay. Slay is one of the few cornerbacks in the NFL that follows the opposition's number-one wide receiver in coverage, regardless of whether it is on the left or right side of the formation. Against Philadelphia, it is unclear whether or not he will shadow one wide receiver throughout the game, but if he does, Slay will follow Nelson Algholor. As a whole, Detroit's pass defense is a league-average unit at all levels, from the pass-rush to pass-coverage.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 1 vs WAS (3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Goedert saw a mere three targets against Washington, buried among the strong skill position players for the Eagles in the passing game. Goedert absorbed a big hit on a deep sideline target which he could not corral and showed a quality stiff arm for yards-after-the-catch on his notable reception. Goedert is a tough projection for his weekly involvement without a Zach Ertz injury.
