Eagles Start Em/Sit Em, Week 6

Eagles/Giants, the perfect rivalry to end a Sunday slate of football. Should your day end with potential fantasy implications, here's what to look for.

START: Zach Ertz

The Giants love to bring pressure on defense, so Nick Foles may find it onerous to go as deep as he's used to going. Much like the Cardinals game last season, Foles would be better off seeking comfort in his tight ends, and Ertz comes in handy both in the flat and down-field. Foles uses plenty of play-action, but the rush will come in quick, and Ertz is the ideal shorter-range target to benefit.

SIT: Riley Cooper

It's hard to imagine how the receivers will shake out. Jeremy Maclin will probably have Prince Amukamara on him, but he'll still make his grabs. Jordan Matthews is good for a few catches over the middle and by the sideline. Cooper, despite likely drawing Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, hasn't had a true breakout game this season. As such, Cooper was targeted only five times by Foles against the Rams, down from the usual seven or eight. He still made four grabs, including a touchdown, but there's still faith being rebuilt.
