DeSean Jackson won't play
Posted Nov. 13 at 06:30 AM
Philadelphia media reporting that Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson's disappointing season will continue in that vein this week. He missed a team meeting yesterday and will be inactive for today's game.
The story can be seen right here. Jackson had a lousy game against Chicago on Monday, but this was a choice matchup against a bad secondary.
With Jackson out, Jason Avant will be the likely beneficiary. He's not certain to start; the Eagles like using him in the slot, so it could be Riley Cooper in that starting role, but Avant will probably get more targets. Upgrade Jeremy Maclin and Brent Celek as well.

Due to high winds in Chicago. Do u move down Stafford and the kickers?

Forrest: I would probably swap Stafford and both kickers out for comparable players to be safe. But if your options are meaningfully worse players -- say, Tarvaris Jackson is your sub for Stafford -- you just have to take your chances.

What about Calvin Johnson? Maclin instead?

Maclin is clear top-4 receiver this week. Jason Avant moves up into top 20. Sleeper (for those in huge leagues): Riley Cooper.
