Eagles Fantasy Football Starts Of The Week

Any fantasy football player remembers what Michael Vick did against the Redskins last year. He accounted for five TDs and more or less single-handedly won every fantasy matchup he was a part of that week. But what about the rest of the Eagles playmakers? Who might make for good starts this week?

In six career games against Washington, DeSean Jackson has caught 12 passes for 249 yards, rushed 7 times for 123 yards (1 TD) and has a punt return TD. He's obviously had some monster games vs the Skins in his career. Jeremy Maclin has 15 catches for 210 yards and a TD in four career games against Washington. So while he hasn't had the dynamic numbers Jackson has had against Washington, he is actually trailing only Wes Welker in catches this year. So especially if you're in a PPR league, Maclin is in the midst of a very productive year.

LeSean McCoy is an obvious start every week, but he's also been solid against the Redskins in four career games. He's rushed for 220 yards and caught 26 passes for 216 yards. That's good for over 109 yards of production per game.

Not that anyone would be starting Brent Celek and his 9 total catches this year... but he hasn't had great numbers against Washington with only 13 catches in 8 games.
