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

Sit ’em

Nick FolesNick Foles has put up some good numbers this season, but struggled last week against the San Francisco 49ers. The Rams defense is nowhere near the caliber of the 49ers’, but their pass defense is still ranked third in the NFL. The Rams defense has had an extra week to prepare for the Eagles which hopefully helps them get things going.

Jeremy Maclin/Riley CooperMaclin has had a solid season, but Janoris Jenkins has been solid as well. Last week against the Cowboys, he shut down Dez Bryant aside from a 68-yard catch that was due to a miscommunication in coverage. Id expect Jenkins to once again have a good day against Maclin and limit his yards.

Eagles/Rams Defense: This has very good potential to be a high scoring affair, and if it is, obviously you won’t want to start either of these defenses. The Eagles defense has been poor as expected and the Rams defense has yet to live up to its high expectations. ESPN ranks the Eagles as the 9th best play this week, but I would advise against it.
