Jason Avant ready for Week 17 action, not a reliable fantasy play

Alex Trautwig

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jason Avant is ready for Week 17. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles wide out Jason Avant will be in the lineup again this weekend. The Eagles pass-catcher had come on strong toward the end of the season, providing a solid underneath possession receiver for rookie QB Nick Foles.

However, Foles is injured now and out for the season. In Week 17, Michael Vick will return to the starting lineup when the Eagles take on the Giants.

Fantasy Analysis: Avant has never been and likely never will be a desirable play in fantasy leagues. He has had sleeper value in the past couple weeks with Foles at QB and DeSean Jackson unavailable.

But with Vick back in the lineup, there is no reason to believe the struggles on offense won't continue. Serious fantasy owners would be better off watching Avant from afar.

For more fantasy info, head over to the SB Nation Fantasy War Room 4-8:30 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday. Check out SB Nation's own Fantasy Football game, Pick 6!
