The New Orleans Saints host the Philadelphia Eagles in a matchup that could produce some serious offensive fireworks. If you are looking to pull off a Monday fantasy victory, this could be the matchup for you. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup this week, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.
Michael Vick has reportedly been on the verge of getting benched over the last week, but he will get another shot at keeping his job. He gets a choice matchup against an awful Saints defense, which means you probably should start most of your Eagles this week. Vick remains a question mark, but if there is one week to like his chances, this is it.
New Orleans Saints
The Saints are struggling to win games, but they remain a strong fantasy force. The big question mark this week is the loss of Darren Sproles. The Saints running back is out with a hand injury, potentially boosting the stock of Pierre Thomas. The key will be how much Thomas is involved in the passing game. The Saints are not a traditional rushing attack, so their RB value comes from receptions. With Sproles out, that opens the door for targets to Thomas.
