Kelly: Eagles won't rest starters if Dallas wins

Jeff McLane on Twitter - [Full Article]

Chip Kelly said if Cowboys win or lose on Sunday at the Redskins, he will play his starters against the Bears that night.

Fantasy Impact: 

If the Cowboys win at 1 p.m. over the Redskins, the 8:30 Sunday night game becomes meaningless for the Eagles, and the division comes down to a Week 17 showdown between the teams. If the Cowboys lose, an Eagles win over the Bears clinches the division. It's something to think about for owners of Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson, though. It's one thing for Kelly to say this on a Monday before the game, but when you're looking at a meaningless game, it's possible Kelly could change his mind and make sure everyone is healthy for Week 17. A terrible Eagles performance last week against the Vikings keeps hope that Kelly goes the distance with his horses, but this is something to monitor.
