Matchups We Love:

Jalen Hurts (QB, PHI)

Hurts and the Eagles had a bit of a lull against the Texans but all their fantasy-relevant players except for DeVonta Smith had a great game. Additionally, the matchup heavily favored running the ball last week but it's the complete opposite against the Commanders, which should mean a bigger day for the passing attack.

Dallas Goedert (TE, PHI)

Goedert had his biggest game of the year clearing 100 yards and finding the end zone. It won't always be that good but he's in the tier right below Kelce and Mark Andrews as a weekly must-start.

Eagles Wide Receivers

A.J. Brown scored for the third consecutive week, which along with higher yard totals is his calling card. Much like in Tennessee, he's averaging exactly six receptions per game, meaning he relies on big plays and touchdowns, but in this offense with Hurts throwing the ball, that's sustainable. He's a lock again this week.

DeVonta Smith is the only member of the passing attack not excelling but when you're the second or third option in an offense with a great rushing attack, that will happen. His ceiling is much higher than the players ranked around him most weeks, keeping him as a high-upside top-30 receiver.

 

Matchups We Hate:

Commanders Running Backs

The Eagles have been getting exploited by their opponent's running backs, mostly recently by Pierce who ran for 139 yards.

With McKissic out last week, Brian Robinson ran the ball 13 times with two catches, although those yielded negative six yards, compared to Antonio Gibson, who rushed the ball 11 times and had two receptions.

They both failed to total 50 scrimmage yards, making neither an inspiring start. They're both flex options with the edge going to Gibson because of his pass-catching ability. With McKissic sidelined once again, there's a little more optimism that they'll be able to come through. Gibson is the preferred option as a top-36 back with Robinson a flex play.

UPDATE: J.D. McKissic has been ruled out, keeping it to just Gibson and Robinson again this week.

Taylor Heinicke (QB, WAS)

While Heinicke taking over has been a positive for the offense and receiving corps, he himself hasn't been particularly valuable for fantasy. He's been steady with streaming potential but against the Eagles, he's off the radar.

 

Other Matchups:

Miles Sanders (RB, PHI)

Sanders capitalized on a juicy matchup with another score and nearly 100 rushing yards. However, he had zero targets compared to three for Kenneth Gainwell, who also ran in a touchdown.

With so much competition around the goal line and in the receiving game, Sanders possesses more risk than other reliable backs. Plus Washington has been beaten so easily through the air and is more difficult to run on, making Sanders a slight fade as a top-24 back.

Commanders Wide Receivers

Terry McLaurin didn't meet expectations last week but it wasn't a terrible game. He's been more valuable since the return of Taylor Heinicke, posting five-plus catches and 50-plus yards in each of the past three games, with a touchdown or 100 yards in two of them. It keeps him in the top 30 despite the difficult matchup.

Curtis Samuel was the one who found the end zone last week, but it was a really strange play that shouldn't have happened. He's also been good the past three weeks, getting involved as a rusher and receiver, totaling 79, 79, and 81 scrimmage yards respectively. He's a flex option with a higher floor.

UPDATE: Jahan Dotson will play against the Eagles, he's not an option in his first game back but could help the offense. He does remove some of the touchdown upside from McLaurin and Samuel.
