Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins Starts and Sits
With fantasy championships on the line, here’s some start or sits from this Saturday’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles playing on the road against the Washington Redskins
Sanchez has an awesome fantasy matchup against the team who has allowed the most fantasy points to quarterbacks all season. Washington has also allowed 31 passing touchdowns by quarterbacks this season also, setting Sanchez up with the potential to knock this one out of the park Saturday.
Robert Griffin III
Start him if he’s your best option at quarterback against the Eagles who have allowed opposing quarterbacks the third most fantasy points. RGIII could show up and perform decently against an Eagles’ defense who has allowed an average of 281 passing yards per game to the quarterback position.
Wide receivers playing against the Washington Redskins are walking away with an average of 25.54 fantasy points each week. Maclin makes a quality WR2 with definite upside in Week 16.
While the Washington receivers are never great options, Jackson makes a case as a WR2 against a soft Philadelphia secondary who have allowed most touchdowns (20) to be scored be wide receivers.
A sketchy start most weeks, Ertz faces a Washington defense who over the last five weeks have allowed the most fantasy points to tight ends. If your other tight end options are bleak, Ertz has appeal.
Philadelphia Eagles Defense
They’re facing the team who has allowed 20 sacks over the last three games, and Robert Griffin III is quite “sackable” allowing himself to be taken to the floor 24 times in his last five outings.
Philadelphia Eagles Running Backs
The whole bunch of them, LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles and Chris Polk are splitting time and now Polk is getting most of the goal line carries. McCoy at best is a flex especially against the team who has allowed the second-fewest fantasy points and only 67 rushing yards on average per game to opposing backs.

The Eagles have been stingy as of late with opposing running backs only rushing for 3.5 yards per touch. Washington will be throwing to keep up with the Eagles, limiting Morris to that of an RB3 this week.
Jordan Matthews, Pierre Garcon, Jordan Reed
None of these guys offer much upside to bringing your fantasy team to championship in Week 16.
Washington Redskins Defense
Other than making it hard for running backs to accomplish anything, this defense really doesn’t offer much appeal to boost your fantasy lineup in Week 16.
