Jason Avant injury update: Fantasy value still low despite probable status

Jim McIsaac

Jason Avant is probable, but that doesn't mean he belong in your fantasy football lineup.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jason Avant is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Avant s dealing with a back injury but managed to practice in full on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week. He will play on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Avant has had a tough time making a fantasy impact for a variety of reasons. First, he has trouble staying fully healthy. Plus, he's buried on the depth chart to begin with.

The Eagles a\have a decent matchup against the struggling Cowboys, but Avant can't be trusted as a starter in fantasy football. He is simply too inconsistent to rely on. Look for another option.
