The Philadelphia Eagles have a bunch of guys that could start for your fantasy team but in this article I am going to tell you about the right ones to choose and which to avoid. Lets start off with the quarterback.
Michael Vick (Pursue): Vick if healthy is one of the best QBs you could ask for in fantasy, with his amazing mobility and rocket arm you are getting the best of both worlds with him.
My only worry with him is obliviously his health, he has only finished a full season once in his career and it was with the Atlanta Falcons.
So if you want Vick I would recommend having a backup plan waiting right behind him like a Matt Ryan or Jay Cutler who will be sitting in the draft for a while in my opinion. Bottom line is he can be the best QB in fantasy if he stays healthy make sure you have backup for this guy if you decide to choose him which I recommend in the earliest round would be the third.
Desean Jackson (Avoid): Jackson is now payed so on a non fantasy stand point he will have a bounce back year but how much of one? Jackson has to share the ball on his own team with fellow WR Jeremy Maclin, TE Brent Celek who had a pretty solid year receiving last year, QB Michael Vick running the ball and then arguably the best RB in the game Lesean (Shady) McCoy. If you look at Desean’s stats over the past couple years they have been pretty consistent but when you look at what other guys will be available at the time you decide to choose him before he is gone there will be guys like Colston, AJ Green, and even Jeremy Maclin I would choose over him. Jackson also led the team in drops last year so you dont want butter fingers on your team. Bottom line is that a lot of other wide receivers should be chosen over him but he would be a good Flex player (RB/WR on a fantasy roster).
Jeremy Maclin (Pursue): Maclin has some issues that are the same as Deseans that the ball will be spread on that team to a lot of other players but with Maclin you get a more complete WR. With Maclin having a strange illness last year which affected his season he still had better numbers then Jackson last year leading the team in receptions. He is almost as fast as Desean and in my opinion has better hands. Bottom Line is Maclin will have a bounce back year with being fully healthy and should be at best your #2 WR.
Lesean McCoy (Pursue): McCoy is an obvious top 5 pick in the first round, he had 20 total touchdowns last year which led all running backs and 1,309 rushing yards. McCoy’s ability to run and catch makes him one of the best players in fantasy. Look for McCoy to have a similar very productive season this year and dont hesitate to pick this guy over in my opinion all running backs except for Arian Foster which is as well a debatable subject.
Brent Celek (Avoid): Celek had a bounce back year last season having 300 more receiving yards last season then he did the season previous and had 20 more receptions than the previous year with 62 and he had to complement that 5 touchdowns. Celek has shown he is as well able to stay on the field all 16 games as he has not missed a single game in his career. I would take Celek in the late rounds as a starter if you want to bulk up all of your other predictions first but if not he is a very solid backup for your team.
Eagles Defense (Pursue): The Eagles defense is a obvious pick to be your starting defense with one of the best d-lines in the leauge naming notable Jason Babin who had 18 sacks last season and Trent Cole who had 11 also having one of the best corner back pears in Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique-Rogers Cromartie which is a shut down duo. The team will have its shares of turnovers and sacks will be a ordinary thing with Babin and Cole roaming around. Again easy pick here and they will be available in the later rounds.
The Philadelphia Eagles will have a boat load of players that you can draft for your fantasy team I hope these pointers will help you decide which ones to select.
