Which QB is most likely to take the Eagles to the Super Bowl?
The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off a 14-3 start that is likely to continue this season, but there are still a few key players who will be facing off against the Seahawks in Week 13.1.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz1.3% ownedThis is a huge game for Wentz, who is likely the Eagles most consistent quarterback in the playoffs.
Wentz has completed 72.3 percent of his passes for 1,531 yards, 13 touchdowns and only three interceptions this season.
In the last five games, he’s completed 69.2 percent of passes for 917 yards, eight touchdowns and one interception.2.49% ownedWentz is a top-10 QB in fantasy this year and he’s the favorite to win the MVP award in the league this year.
However, the Eagles are missing their best offensive weapon, running back DeMarco Murray.
Murray is questionable for the game due to a back injury and is unlikely to play.2% ownedThe Seahawks are coming to CenturyLink Field on Sunday with a dominant defense.
They’ll be playing without three key players: Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner and Brandon Mebane.
Wilson, who has been one of the league’s best quarterbacks all season, is the favorite for the MVP and he leads the NFL in passing yards with 2,976.
The Seahawks have allowed just four rushing touchdowns all season.5.4% ownedWilson and the Seahawks are a sneaky team in fantasy football.
They’ve allowed just two touchdowns through two games, and they’ve only allowed seven rushing touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks.
Wilson has been excellent this season and he has the best fantasy season by a quarterback since his rookie year.5% ownedBucs RB Melvin Gordon2.0% ownedGordon has been a big part of the Cincinnati Bengals offense this season with 2.5 yards per carry and a whopping 11.8 yards per rush.
He’s averaging 8.1 yards per touch and he is averaging 5.8 rushing yards per game.
He leads the league in rushing yards with 1,738 and has been the clear No. 1 running back in fantasy.5-7.2 million ownedGordon will be in the spotlight on Sunday, but he’s still a solid RB2-3 in most leagues.
The Bengals have given up the most rushing yards in the NFL, so they will probably be in great position to hold Gordon to two rushing touchdowns.
Gordon is the clear favorite for Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.7.3 million ownedThe Steelers are coming into this game on a bye.
They have allowed one rushing touchdown through two weeks and have allowed five total touchdowns through four games.
Pittsburgh is allowing just two rushing scores this season through four weeks.
Pittsburgh’s running game has been extremely impressive this season despite missing Le’Veon Bell.7-6.5 million ownedPittsburgh’s running back duo of Le’veon Bell and Le’Garrette Blount are very dangerous.
They are both averaging over 5 yards per catch on the ground, and Bell has averaged more than 18 yards per reception all season long.
Bell has been solid all season and has scored a touchdown in each of his last three games.7,000 ownedBlount is a must-start in any PPR league.
Blount has the second-highest scoring fantasy season among RBs behind Bell.
Blown out in Week 6 against the Bengals, Blount went to his highest point total in his career, scoring 21 points in a Week 13 win over the Broncos.
Blunt is the best RB in fantasy and should be owned in all leagues.5,000+ ownedWe’re getting into a different topic with this one, but we’ll touch on this again.
This is a big week for the Cowboys defense, who are tied for the league lead in scoring.
The Cowboys are giving up just two total touchdowns this season while allowing just one rushing score through two contests.
They’re not allowing a ton of points, but they have been tough to run against in the first half of games.5+ million ownedDeMarco Murray is going to be the main focal point for the Eagles offense on Sunday.
Murray has been fantastic this season for Dallas, with 1.6 yards per attempt and eight rushing touchdowns through his first two games.
He is the top fantasy RB in Week 12 and he’ll be an all-time great in Week 14.5+.2.8 million ownedThis game has a lot to do with the Cowboys starting five players for the first time all season: Jason Witten, Jason Wooten, Ryan Mathews, Jason Garrett and Jason Worthy.
Witten and Wootneth are two of the best running backs in the game right now.
Worthy is a tough matchup for the Seahawks defense.
Witten has the No. 3 rushing touchdown and No. 7 rushing yards among all running backs this season among
