The Patriots defense is an interesting case study. In one sense, they're an absolute sieve, literally the worst defense in the league in terms of yardage per game. However, they have done a decent job keeping opponents from scoring. They're giving up an incredible 400 yards a game, but just 20.3 points. That means they're the worst in the league in terms of yards and the tenth best in terms of points allowed. It's a bizarre dichotomy for sure.
It's also kind of scary given that the Eagles pretty much always move the ball at will, but often struggle in the red zone. So what does this mean for some notable Eagles in fantasy football today? Here are some projections from Numberfire.
DeSean Jackson - 4.49 rec for 50.83 yds, 0.28 TDs for 6.77 pts
Jeremy Maclin - 3.08 rec for 39.68 yds, 0.40 TDs for 6.43 pts
LeSean McCoy - 18.50 car, 83.85 yds, 4.17 rec for 38.15 yds, 0.72 TDs for 16.56 pts
Brent Celek - 3.97 rec for 41.04 yds, 0.33 TDs for 6.06 pts
Vince Young - 21.64/34.74, 218.55 yds, 1.16 TDs, 0.88 INTs for 14.09 pts
