Fantasy Preview: Philadelphia vs. New York

Posted: Updated:

A football game is scheduled at Met Life Stadium between the Eagles and Giants but a point induced flash mob might break out.

Michael Vick has returned to the old looking man the past two games, but the Giants defense could be the liquid from the fountain of youth. He'll throw for 350 and run for another 50 yards with two touchdowns through the air and another on the ground.

LeSean McCoy is our top ranked runner this week and with good reason. The Giants are a bottom five defense against the run. A day that includes 150 combo yards and a pair of scores sounds about right.

DeSean Jackson is a solid play but keep the following in mind. In the Giants previous four games, they have given up a combined 16 receptions and 172 yards to opponents top receiver. That list includes Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas, Steve Smith and Dwayne Bowe. Of the four, Bowe was the only one to find the endzone. That said, Jackson will top 100 yards and score. Jason Avant is a solid play this week as well.

Alex Henry is a solid play in the kicking game, but the defense (if owned) belongs on the bench.

New York Giants:

It has been a completely upside down season for the Giants and Eli Manning. He has a great opportunity to turn things around against a Eagles defense that has allowed the most points to wide receivers in the NFL. Philadelphia has allowed nine touchdowns to opposing wide receivers and Manning should have his best passing day this season. He'll go over 325 yards and fire for 2-3 touchdowns.

David Wilson has been better of late and although I don't see him finding the endzone, I do see 100 combo yards.

Victor Cruz has been a fantasy monster and that will continue this week. A 130+ yard game and a score is imminent. Meanwhile, Hakeem Nicks is more of a question mark. If he can't get it done against the Eagles, the Giants will likely put him out to pasture.

Brandon Myers isn't an elite tight end, but he should finish with around 60 yards and a score.

Josh Brown and the defense should be on your bench.
