St. Louis Rams @ Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Football Start ’em, Sit ’em

2 of 4

Start ’em

Austin Davis:  Most likely you will be able to pick up Austin Davis on waivers as he is only owned in 1.4% of leagues according to ESPN Fantasy Football. Davis is a risky play, but if you have a quarterback on a bye, or have two quarterbacks with unfavorable match ups, Davis may be the way to go. Philadelphia gives up an average of 257 yards per game through the air and a couple of weeks ago they gave up 427 yards to Kirk Cousins at home.

Zac StacyYou can bet the Rams are going to give Zac Stacy a heavy dose in the run game. The Eagles have the 26th ranked run defense which the Rams are definitely going to take advantage of. If the Rams can get Stacy going, he could have a good game.

Jared Cook/Lance KendricksThis is another play in which if you have an unfavorable matchup, Cook or Kendricks could be a way to go and get some points. The Eagles aren’t strong at the linebacker position especially with Mychal Kendricks out with a calf injury. That leaves first round pick Marcus Smith and Casey Matthews in coverage. Id go with Cook over Kendricks because Cook has been a favorite target of Davis, but Kendricks seems to have a nose for the end zone when the Rams are inside the 20.

Brian Quick/Kenny BrittBrian Quick might actually find a spot in your weekly fantasy football lineup believe it or not. He is the Rams leading receiver, and is putting up good numbers consistently. Kenny Britt has yet to really have an impact, but against an Eagles secondary that gives up a lot of deep balls he and Quick could really have a good week. Don’t be afraid to start one of these two players.

LeSean McCoyMcCoy is just waiting to have a big game and if its going to happen this season, it’s going to happen against the Rams who have the 30th ranked run defense. The Rams simply can’t seem to be consistent against the run on defense this season. If McCoy can’t get it going this week, I’m not sure he ever will.

Zack Ertz: Up until last week Ertz lead all tight ends in yards per reception, and still he ranks fourth in that category. The Rams have a good pass defense, but if its any place they will get beat it’s with the tight ends and Ertz is coming into his own and turning into one of the best in the league.
