I picked up Eagles for this game lmfao.


montana1991

So then this is YOUR fault


DeyHateUsCuzDeyAnus

No it's mine. I picked them up but with more passion.


jsta19

same. i was going to hold them all season. now im debating going with the cowboys instead. don't really have space for two defenses at the moment.


BrettMoneyMaher

How in the hell are either the Eagles or Cowboys available in yalls leagues


EverybodyHits

You will be rewarded


30DollarWatermelon

I mean he’s been good but it’s not like he was one of our top two corners. I don’t think this changes much at all but I’d feel better starting Kirk in DFS or something


DJsaxy

I mean it's football if avonte Maddox is the only significant injury they have then they're pretty lucky


phbstudent

It’s still a great play. I think Lawrence is going to have an awful day dealing with that pass rush.


meatboysawakening

I feel like our pass rush is somewhat overrated. We got 9 sacks with a four man rush on Wentz because he never throws the ball away. I guess we'll see though.


power270lb

Watch breaking the birds on YouTube. Sacks weren't showing up first two games but our pass rush is definitely not overrated.


meatboysawakening

It's a good show, I need to catch up with the latest eps.


power270lb

They can easily slide CJGJ to the slot and put kvon or Jacoby at SS. Not ideal but looking at pederson led teams and watching the jags this year they throw a lot of short intermediate passes and run the ball. CJGJ was arguably better than Maddox at the slot (not my opinion but he was regarded as one of the best slot cbs). Gannon goes with a lot of 2 deep S zone schemes so as long as whoever plays SS can tackle and they can cover the flats and sidelines they'll be fine + it's supposed to pour Sunday.


jcrankin22

We got to Cousins and forced him into a lot of mistakes. I don’t think T Law is gonna do too great either but wouldn’t be surprised if he was fine either.


ParagonSaint

Trevor hasn't been sacked since Week 1. They just paid Cam Robinson at LT who looks a LOT better being a few years removed from an ACL tear. Their RT Jawaan Taylor hasn't allowed a pressure or committed a penalty, he's in a contract year and playing for the bag. Now the weakness of the Jags Oline is their rookie Center and 2nd year LG who is pretty good just inexperienced; I think Fletcher Cox will have some success against that interior/Left side A gap. But I don't think the Eagles pass rush is going to ravage the Jags like they did to Wentz.


jayzee1126

Bizarre comment


szzzn

You like that daddy?


gooeygoo6969

Lmao a slot DB out and you worried. Dude do you even watch football?


bmac503

Yeah slot guys don't matter. It's not like the league has gone more pass heavy and runs 3 WR sets the majority of the games now.


gooeygoo6969

Sigh. Alrite man. Bench eagles taco.


bmac503

I dont even have the Eagles defense. Just thought your condescending remark was unwarranted. Slot DBs definitely matter for defenses in the modern NFL.


SL2321

He's a fucking moron.


gooeygoo6969

Lol oh noesssss slot Db out. Now too elite defense team gonan fall apart. Bro ya don’t think coaches game plan? It’s the slot DB man


bmac503

I can tell your either uneducated or a child by the way you type.


DetroitLionsSBChamps

Same but honestly they have been going off and their schedule looks favorable. I’ve been week to week on defense but I think I’m keeping them for the season


TheWorldIsOne2

For this game? Against the Jags? Last week vs Commanders was the game to pick up the Eagles for...


Trumbulhockeyguy

Just dropped them for the Giants who are playing the very regarded Bears.


szzzn

I dropped Giants for Eagles LOL


jaypb1710

Good move with the Giants offense struggling. I heavily considered starting giants but I realized that defense is gonna be in the field way too much.


ReefLedger

Dumb.


Trumbulhockeyguy

On what planet are you more scared of the Bears offense than the Jags


ReefLedger

You playing with tacos? Cuz if you were in my league you're never getting that Eagles D back. And it's not even that far off a matchup lol


Trumbulhockeyguy

When are you starting them next? I’m not rolling them out against the cowboys. That leaves Pitt. Not leaving them on my bench for 3 weeks


ReefLedger

Have fun with Gmen


blumpkinmuncher

why not start them against the Cowboys?


Trumbulhockeyguy

Dak will be back and there’s better options. Everyone is assuming Phi is elite because they beat the commanders, Vikings, and lions (barely). Maybe they are elite! I just don’t think it’s as sure of a thing as y’all do I guess.


Pr0nade

If dak comes back next week I will absolutely play the defense that he plays against. He’s rushing back if he comes back that fast


oldhoekoo

watch them play this week. it might change your opinion


hallROCK

Talent, talent overall with a cherry schedule. Nobody is calling them elite, at least anybody with a clue. Gannon's a weak point but has shown the ability to correct his mistakes. If that holds and health remains in their favor then yes, then you consider them "elite".


SaskalPiakam

Prob less to do with the Bears/Jags and more to do with just rolling with the Giants defense with no Leo Williams


astolenhooker

Herbert still gonna eat the giants D alive


Pr0nade

Giants don’t have Leonard Williams. Which means their run defense is shot, since they have the worst LBs in the league. The bears run like 67% of their plays.


EverybodyHits

While this isn't great, C.J. Gardner-Johnson is more than capable of sliding down from safety into the slot corner role. Not that anyone is sitting Kirk anyway


Deathwishrok

Who would play safety in that case? They may do that if Kirk is torching them during the game.


EverybodyHits

They have a couple different options, Blankenship or Josiah Scott. It helps that there's not a WR really taking the top off the defense in Jacksonville, so they can get creative on alignment. Like I said it's not ideal but they're not in dire straights or anything.


Deathwishrok

Got it, I have to start Kirk anyway, but was curious. Slay's been fantastic so far this year in shutting down the WR1. Kirk in the slot should hopefully get some nice points again.


DynastyNA

I thought Blankenship was a kicker


Jaguars6

Jaguars legend Josiah Scott


Veeg-Tard

I was going to start Kirk this week, but now I'm really going to start him.


power270lb

They can just move CJGJ into the slot.


backyardpizza

I am sitting Kirk. I would have put him in my flex, but I’m playing Jamaal Williams instead because Swift is out. My WR1&2 are Justin Jefferson and Mike Evans. I almost want to play Kirk instead of Jefferson with his numbers being so bad the last two weeks.


ParagonSaint

Doing the same thing with Devonta Smith. Gonna be rainy & windy all weekend and Jamaal Williams is about to get the Lions share of carriers.


Squake

I am for Amari this week


Deathwishrok

They activated a safety today so I think you are right!! I have to start Kirk anyway tho. Hope he still does well!


EverybodyHits

Good luck! I'm sure he will still be a good start


Deathwishrok

Thanks, you too!!


reigningnovice

I might sit Kirk for Mike Williams with Keenan out.


DanceCommander-

Beam me up Captain Kirk.


power270lb

Beam me up CJGJ.


CrystalShip67

They still got a solid D line. I’m starting Eagles. I’m actually really excited for this game! I’ve got a lot of stock in these 2 teams! JTob, ETN, Kirk, Hurts, and their Def/Sat across 3 teams!


danathecount

Should be a good game outside of fantasy. Both teams look really good.


GarrettGage

Same here! Haven’t watched Philly much outside of the Vikings game. Other than Slay, you mention the line play, are they just strong all around or is there some other superstar Petersen needs to account for? Mostly curious if the run or the pass is a better option for the Jags? Let’s just guess that Zay suits up even if a little limited.


CrystalShip67

The Eagles are good all around this year and they are not giving up a lot of points but the Jags are getting better both in the run and the pass game! They also have Doug Pederson who should be able to reads the Eagles Defense like a book! Revenge game!!


Got_yayo

Our defense is completely different than when Dougie P was here. Gannon runs a hybrids 3-4/4-3 defense


Pocket2sVStheWorld

There’s a lot of talk about a hybrid 3-4, but we always have four rushing linemen. Reddick stands, but that’s cause it’s his preference. For all intents and purposes were running a 4-3


CrystalShip67

As it should be! On paper, Eagles should win this game but I wouldn’t be surprised if we see an upset here!


Got_yayo

Delete this nephew


CrystalShip67

Any given Sunday sir! Best of luck!


Dk9221

Eagles aren’t losing vs the jags lmao


montana1991

Much different defense and coaches


Stormzilla

I somehow ended up with Kirk, ETN, Lawrence, and Zay Jones on one of my teams. You can never have too many Jacksonville Jaguars on your roster!!


CrystalShip67

I have Hurts, Smith, and Eagles D as well as Kirk and ETN on the same team lol gotta ride the hot hand as they say!


_kehd

Kirk is gonna destroy me in my matchup this week, isn’t he?…


Mysterypickle76

God I hope so


power270lb

Eagles can move CJGJ to the slot. He plays cover 2 so all the other S has to do is not get burned, jags mostly throw short to medium.


Thegrandmistressofoz

Don't know why this is getting downvoted when this is likely what's gonna happen lol


power270lb

It's reddit dude, say you like puppies and you'll get down voted.


KrazyMoose

Still starting Eagles defense. They could give up 30 points and still have a decent game from a fantasy perspective


montana1991

They played like ass on defense , comparatively, in week 1 and still managed 5 points. Once they really get rolling, should be awesome both in fantasy and real life


kaelinlr

Rolling (doing great)


RNGcooks

Giving up 38 points but still getting 5 points in fantasy is insane actually lmao


de_dust

It's also gonna be pissing rain all day thanks to this hurricane afterbirth.


Evancolt

If Zay Jones plays, is this big for him? Debating using him over Juju this week


A_Huggable_Cactus

Eagles fan: probably not. Maddox is basically exclusively our slot corner and from what I know of the Jags, Zay rarely (if at all) plays the slot. This is significant for Kirk and that’s probably it. Zay will probably be across from Slay or Bradberry if he plays.


Pocket2sVStheWorld

Play Juju. He was on blocking duty week 2- my guess is he was in the dog house for fumbling week 1. Other than Kelce he’s the teams leading receiver. He’ll get that TD soon and cement himself as their number 2 playmaker


throwaway1123876

I’m declaring this James Robinson music, because I can


Pocket2sVStheWorld

As an eagles fan, I flipped robinson for this week. I expect 8 from him


OwenLincolnFratter

Time to start T Law?


mostdeadlygeist

I'm starting him over Rodgers. Hoping for a shootout.


kiddfrank

I’m starting him over Wilson


theGuvn4H

But would you start him over Cousins?


mostdeadlygeist

I'm liking the thought of his leap this year. But cousins did kill it last time he was in London


jabroni716

Nobody should question starting the Eagles defense this Sunday if you were already starting them because thier 9th best player on defense will miss a week .


SpontaneousGroupHug

What if I also have Rams? I'm an eagles fan so my homerism is clouding all judgement.


jabroni716

I think the rams have a better match up so I would go with them. Go birds!


SpontaneousGroupHug

Heads up - subvertadown now ranking Eagles #1 this week. O/U keeps dropping as weather forecasts look rainy and windy. They're both good options but I'm leaning back toward Eagles D.


ihavejennysnumber

Guess this is the excuse we'll be fed in the jags win


Jaguars6

Well, both teams are near full health, and they’ve got the advantage at home, so there shouldn’t be any IF the Jags win.


ihavejennysnumber

Yeah but you're forgetting the LOLJAGS😂😂😂 which apparently means the jags will never be good ever


Jaguars6

Eh, they’re getting a lot of respect right now. If they somehow beat the Eagles, it’ll all change.


RuffRudeBwoy

I had a dream Zay Jones scored a TD and in my dream I saw the number 15. Gonna revisit this if he scores a TD and finishes with 15 pts.


sguru01

Anybody pivoting away from Eagles now? What are your other options? Only options for me are Giants or Browns on waiver.


Pr0nade

Elite defenses don’t crumble from losing one player. They are elite cause they have good players and good depth players


platsnap

People thought chargers were elite last week lol. Bosa down and everything fell apart


-Captain--Hindsight

Losing Maddox vs losing Bosa are two very different things.


jabroni716

Right. One is like the best defensive player on the team and the other is maybe the 9th best defensive player on the team. If you were starting the eagles defense you should continue to do so despite this injury.


EverybodyHits

Eagles fan Don't pivot off the eagles because of Maddox


UndervascularHood

Stick with eagles. Still one of the best defenses in the league, jags are good but don’t see them keeping up their current pace.


cuzigothye

Over the rams?


SpontaneousGroupHug

My dilemma as well...


dolphinsattacking

With no Leonard Williams i wouldn't start the Giants confidently


Shamjam08

Split between 49er D and Philly. Still like Philly for the upside


TruthfulCartographer

Exact same thought here. Eagles more boom bust, 49ers should be solid tho…if Jefferson slays in London maybe I’ll roll niners


theorizingtheory

Fuck I need JJ to go off this week!


KickerRevolution

Jags


power270lb

Eagles have CJGJ who played slot in NO and play cover 2. Considering jags run and throw a lot of short passes, this isn't a pivot by any stretch.


Trumbulhockeyguy

Dude I was in the same boat and chose the GMen. Ride with me fam


Got_yayo

Nope


alredopie

Maddox isn’t a superstar. Just a guy starter. It’s not really going to effect the whole unit much


[deleted]

[удалено]


2keyed

Kirk is like #6 overall WR in ppr it’s an easy choice imo


Stombie8

And Williams is 8th overall rb. And that's with swift. Pretty easy Williams for me. More opportunities


MrSpookShire

I used that logic starting Waddle :(


RAWxCurse

To be fair It’s not like you would ever bench Waddle after his first 3 weeks…


2keyed

That was a good choice his starting qb literally was taken out on a stretcher


morelibertarianvotes

He wasn't exactly lighting it up to that point


Tanev1337

Start your studs


kiddfrank

Williams behind that offensive line is a solid floor, idk about 2 tds again but the ceiling is clearly there too.


Deathwishrok

Yay let's go again Kirk! Need you and Barkley to keep carrying me! Lol


jsta19

should i stick with eagles or pivot to cowboys


actionjacksonwav

I’m still starting philly bc they have a great chance of staying fantasy relevant by getting to Trev, but Dallas is a really good pivot option if your guy says no


fantasydawg

In other words, CAPTAIN KIRK GONNA FEAST


I_AM_ACURA_LEGEND

captain kirk to beam up


Radjage

I got Kirk but Eagles D is pretty good, especially if they shadow Slay or Bradberry on him. Hard choice there.


CandyVanahan

I’ve been going back and forth all week between Derek carr and Trevor lawrence


hv9876

Feel this but with Stafford vs Lawrence… I believe in Lawrence completely but want to see how he handles an elite defense before I set and forget.


pileatedloon

Same here. Carr feels like a trap against Denver with how the Denver D has played this year. TLaw has been hot. I think Carr is going to end around 13-14 points (like 250, 1 TD, 2 INTs) but TLaw has a much larger range of outcomes.


CrystalShip67

Eagles have one of the best schedules of the year. I’m rolling with them!


jcrankin22

I think they slide CGJ to cover Kirk. I don’t think this is a slam dunk most people think it is.


carl2k1

Yikes, play eagles d or vikings d?


Ambiyonce

Traded Kirk for Josh Jacobs 2 weeks ago… Salt meet wound


pinkwhiteandgreenNL

Any potential benefits to starting Kirk and the Eagles D/ST ? I have both and the Saints D


TheGrandpaHimself

Im starting Kirk and Eagles D/ST. Both can score high at the same time


beigereige

My upset special


beigereige

0-3 dude in my league paid $13 for the Philadelphia defense 🤔


Bruce-T-Wayne

Christian KirWR1k SZN


saddiqbey

The streets need 2 TD 110+ yards for Kirk, 100+ rushing yards for James Rob & 6 sacks, 1 FF, 2 INTs for Eagles defence…im streets


FairBlamer

As a Kirk owner and Eagles fan, I’m sitting Kirk despite this news. It’s supposed to pour Sunday, and CJGJ is plenty good enough to fill in for Maddox in the slot. TLaw will get significantly more pressure than he’s seen so far this year. Jags offense is good but probably a little overrated so far, having gone against the Commies, Dolts, and Bosa-less Chargers. Kirk comes back to Earth a bit against a stacked Eagles defense despite Maddox being out.


Idunkedonlebron23

Zay Jones SZN!


pokeraf

Is he practicing?


SuperSaiyanBen

I told my bros that I was Ruled out for Game Night this weekend. Big Blow to the team, but I couldn’t pass it up, girl was letting me spend so much time in the slot.
