Philadelphia Eagles

DeMarco Murray/Ryan Mathews/ Darren Sproles (Running Backs): This collective of running backs at one time, thought to have the potential to be the best running game in the NFL has flopped harder than an all Jaguars fantasy team. The collective rushed for -2 yards last week against a stout Cowboys defense. The Jets defense is also very good and will bring a ton of pressure and creative blitz packages the Eagles just cannot handle right now. Owners should sit all 3 of these running backs.

Jordan Matthews (Wide Receiver): Matthews got lucky getting into the end zone last week during garbage time. He has often looked lost and confused with offensive play calls however he is the most targeted receiver in this offense and will continue to be. He will see Revis Island this weekend so he is best left on your bench.

New York Jets

Brandon Marshall/Eric Decker (Wide Receiver): Marshall has had some big games already and could be in store for another one. Decker has a knee sprain and could potentially miss this contest, making Brandon Marshall the go to guy in this offense. The Eagles will have tremendous trouble covering the tall wide receiver.

Chris Ivory (Running Back): Ivory has been the main running back in this Jets offense and will get an opportunity to tee off against the depleted Eagles defense. With Kiko Alonso out for this contest Ivory could be in for a monster game.
