Fantasy football projections, Week 14: Lions vs. Eagles featuring Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson and Nick Foles

We break down the Week 14 matchup between the Detroit Lions and the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Week 14 matchup between the Detroit Lions and the Philadelphia Eagles should be a run-and-gun style affair. We have all the fantasy projections for you courtesy of numberFire.

Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford has six interceptions in the last two games. That's a lot for any quarterback. Luckily for Stafford's owners, he happens to be in an elite class and throws a lot. The touchdowns and yardage totals almost always account for any slip-ups related to turning the ball over. Sunday's game against the Eagles should produce big numbers for Stafford as the Philadelphia secondary is leaky at the best of times.

As is always the case, a big game for Stafford will be equally big for his top receiver, Calvin Johnson. Johnson managed his third straight 100-yard receiving game last week against the Green Bay Packers. He found the end zone for his 12th touchdown of the season. Nobody in the NFL can cover him when he's at his best, which is usually every week. He'll be a top play to start the fantasy playoffs this week.

Philadelphia Eagles

Nick Foles is the Eagles' go-to guy under center these days. He showed why against a normally stout Arizona Cardinals defense last week. Foles threw for 237 yards and three touchdowns in that game, leading the team to their fourth straight victory. He's only thrown for over 300 yards once this season but he seems to have a flair for finding the end zone. He also takes care of the football. Foles has yet to throw an interception this year.

Any success Foles has in finding his receivers obviously helps the fantasy value of his most explosive target, Desean Jackson. His reception totals have been relatively low in each of the last three weeks, but he's more of a downfield receiver anyway. Since the Lions will no doubt put up a lot of points this week, Foles and Jackson will have to connect a lot on Sunday. Fantasy owners should be licking their chops if they own Jackson this week.
