Jason Avant is probable for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jason Avant (wrist) put in a full week of practice and is probable to play against the Eagles.

Analysis: Avant is going to play, and he will see his fair share of action with Jeremy Maclin (hip) out of the lineup. Andy Reid said he's going to mix and match his receivers to fill the void left by his star wideout. Avant has always been best served in the slot, so Damaris Johnson is likely to see more snaps in two-wide sets. The Cardinals have a stout D, and Johnson does offer a little more upside. If you're in a real bind at receiver this week, Johnson is probably the better bet.
