The Carolina Panthers head to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles on Monday Night Football. Fantasy football playoffs are approaching, which means every week is a vital matchup. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup for Week 11, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.
Cam Newton still hasn't put in one of those games that made his owners happy they drafted him in the first 20 picks. He may very well do that on Monday as long as the Panthers can keep him upright from Trent Cole and Jordan Babin.
Steve Smith hasn't been much of a PPR guy as we've come to know and love, but he might have some success against the Eagles and their secondary. Brandon LaFell made a splash last week with a 93 yards and a TD, so he'll look to keep it going. Although, he is a very risky play since he's fallen off the map on several occasions. Jonathan Stewart has been carrying the ball more and could also be used as a flex.
The Eagles are in some trouble. They are unlikely to have their quarterback and running back with Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy out of the lineup. Bryce Brown should have a lot of his plate given the way Nick Foles struggled in his first start. He's worthy of starting as a RB2. Foles will be tough to start unless you're in a two-QB league.
Jeremy Maclin didn't even have a catch last week and he's no longer in the WR2 neighborhood. Basically, all the Eagles except for Brown should be on the bench in 10-team leagues.
