The Philadelphia Eagles (3-4-1) will look to solidify their place atop the NFC East as they go on the road to take on the New York Giants (2-7) in Week 10 NFL action. While the game may not be one of the most anticipated matchups of the week, there are definitely some key fantasy footall players to keep an eye on.
If you need help with your fantasy football lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for the Week 10 Eagles-Giants showdown.
Who Should I Start Fantasy Football
Start Jalen Reagor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles: Rookie wide receiver Jalen Reagor made his return from a thumb injury last week and slid into a productive role catching 3 of 6 targets for 16 yards and a touchdown while gaining a rush attempt as well. It was obvious the Eagles wanted to get Reagor the ball, and that is always a good sign in fantasy football. Reagor goes up against a Giants' defense this week that has given up 1,629 yards to opposing wide receivers this season (No. 28 in the NFL). With shutdown cornerback James Bradberry likely focused on covering Travis Fulgham, Reagor should have ample opportunities to create separation and get open down the field. Fantasy football managers should feel comfortable starting him this week.
Start Evan Engram, TE, New York Giants: Evan Engram is finally starting to become the breakout tight end many people expected him to be coming into the season. He has seen at least 9 targets in each of the past three games and seems to have developed a solid chemistry with quarterback Daniel Jones. He scored his first touchdown of the season last week and now faces and Eagles' defense that has allowed 476 yards to opposing tight ends this season (No. 25 in the NFL) as well as 6 touchdowns (T-No. 23 in the NFL). His recent uptick in targets makes him a great start in Week 10 and he could become a top tight end for the rest of the season if he keeps up his current production.
Sit Alshon Jeffery, WR, Philadelphia Eagles: Alshon Jeffery has been a full participant in practice this week and looks on track to return to play after battling a foot injury all season. If he does play, the risk that comes along with starting him in fantasy football is not worth it. Jeffery plays the 'X' receiver position, which is where Eagles' breakout wide receiver Travis Fulgham is currently playing. It would be irresponsible for the Eagles to take away snaps from him given how well he has been playing. Jeffery may even need time to get back up to speed given he has missed the first eight games of the season. It is best to stash Jeffery on your bench until it is clear what his role on this offense is moving forward.
Sit Darius Slayton, WR, New York Giants: Wide receiver Darius Slayton started the season off hot, but has cooled down over the past month or so to be a fringe WR3/FLEX player in fantasy football. he has caught just 8 passes over the past three weeks for 85 yards and has not scored a touchdown since Week 6. He draws a poor matchup in Week 10 as well as he is set to go head-to-head with Eagles' cornerback Darius Slay. When these two matched up the first time this season, Slayton caught 2 of 3 targets for just 23 yards. Overall, the Eagles have only given up just 1,117 yards to opposing wide receivers this season (No. 3 in the NFL). It is best to simply keep Slayton on your bench this week.
