This is a lopsided matchup in favor of the Eagles. The spread for this game is currently 14 points in favor for the Eagles. With Sam Darnold questionable for this game, the Eagles should come out with a win. Since Darnold has been out, the Jets have not scored an offensive touchdown. Even if Darnold does play, the Eagles will still probably win. They are coming off of a huge upset win against the Packers last Thursday night and are well rested for this game against the Jets. Those factors combined with the fact that the Eagles are at home mean that the Eagles will almost surely win this one.

New York Jets Analysis
The Jets are not in a good position to win games without Sam Darnold. Their offense has been awful without him. However, this is a chance that he returns to the field this game. He will undergo tests on Friday to see whether he can actually play this week, so keep an eye on his status for Friday.
With only 197 YPG, there is not much opportunity for Jets players to have big games. Jamison Crowder, the Jets top receiver, has only had 164 receiving yards this season. Considering this, do not expect Crowder or Robby Anderson to perform well in this game against the Eagles. This offense has been atrocious, and they have not had an opportunity to make plays. The only player who will have a decent game on the Jets offense is Le’Veon Bell. Somehow, he has still managed to average 94 total YPG. The Eagles do not have a particularly good defense, so Bell should have a decent game. He may not put up an incredible number of fantasy points, but he should have a solid fantasy performance.

Philadelphia Eagles Analysis
The Eagles offense is in a great position to do well this week against a Jets team that is not very good. Running backs Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders will likely get a lot of carries because the Eagles will be in the lead for most of the game. Howard had a huge game last week with 115 total yards and 3 touchdowns. Last week, Howard was on the field for 53% of snaps while Sanders was on the field for only 35% of snaps. So, it appears that Howard is the lead back for the Eagles, and he should be in line for many carries this week. The problem with Howard this week is that the Jets have been very good against the run. They have only allowed 266 rushing yards through 3 games, which is very good. Even against good running backs, the Jets have been able to stop them. In week 2, Nick Chubb was held to only 62 yards on 18 carries and in week 3, they held Sony Michel to 11 yards on 9 carries. So, even when the Jets have lost by a lot to good teams, they have not allowed running backs to have big games. Considering that the Eagles’ running backs have been splitting carries, it is not a good idea to start either of them against this good Jets run defense.
As for receivers, the Jets have allowed big games to opposing receivers. In week 2, the Jets allowed 161 yards and 1 touchdown to Odell Beckham, so expect Alshon Jeffery, the Eagles WR1, to have a great game against the Jets. Also, tight end Zach Ertz is another candidate to have a big game. He has been the top target for Wentz and should get his fair share of receptions and yards this week.

Daily Fantasy: Eagles Passing Game
Carson Wentz (DK: $6,100, FD: $7,800) will have a great game against this 16th ranked Jets pass defense. He has averaged 21.5 fantasy points per game and will put up a similar total this week. Also on the Eagles offense, Alshon Jeffery (DK: $5,900, FD: $6,700) is a great value play for this week. His salary is very low on both DraftKings and FanDuel and the Jets have allowed the 3rd most points to opposing receivers. Nelson Agholor (DK: $4,700, FD: $5,500) could be another sneaky play against the Jets defense. I do not like either Jordan Howard (DK: $5,100, FD: $6,500) or Miles Sanders (DK: $4,500, FD: $6,000) because they are splitting carries and the Jets have been very good against the run. I also do not like Le’Veon Bell (DK: $6,800, FD: $7,300) at his current value on DraftKings and FanDuel. His salary is one of the highest for running backs, but he has not had any big games and is on one of the worst offenses in the NFL.
