Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) took full practice reps again Thursday. Matthews hasn’t had the same dynamic with Mark Sanchez as the duo showed when Sanchez first took over at quarterback. A matchup with Washington may be just what the doctor ordered.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was '85, 90 percent' in Week 15

Wednesday, December 17, 2014, 7:31pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

After averaging 27.48 yards per catch from Weeks 5-9, Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has cooled off. Since that time, he's averaged 12.36 yards on 14 catches -- though he was missed on two deep balls vs. Tampa Bay in Week 11.

His knee injury hasn't helped.

"Just trying to get back to 100 percent," Jackson said. "Last week I was 85, 90 percent so hopefully this week I'll feel better."

What he doesn't feel like doing is talking about the Eagles.

"I just don't really care too much for it," he said. "The first game was the first time playing them. Now a whole season went on. They're playing and I'm playing here. I don't put too much energy into that and outside of that I don't care too much about it."

Fantasy Impact:

His owners are hoping for a repeat of the 5-117-1 line he posted on 11 targets back in Week 3, but Jackson has had one good game since the team's bye in Week 10. His comments make it sound as if he's not too focused on the revenge factor, but we find that a little hard to believe. The Redskins have a chance to knock the Eagles out of the playoff hunt, so they should be plenty motivated even in the middle of a dysfunctional season.

Eagles Beat: Nick Foles' collarbone '70-percent healed'

Tuesday, December 16, 2014, 8:54pm

Howard Eskin on Twitter - [Full Article]

Sources tell me Eagles QB Nick Foles fractured collarbone only 70% healed. So obviously no way Foles plays in regular season games.

Fantasy Impact:

From a fantasy angle, Mark Sanchez was cruising a long putting up serviceable fantasy points - until the last two weeks. The matchups get easier as the Birds take on the Redskins and Giant to close the season, but if you've survived with Sanchez to this point it will be tough to trust him in Week 16. While he was half a yard away from a long Jeremy Maclin TD pass to his credit, his two biggest pass plays were shorter throws that Maclin and Josh Huff turned into big gains or his final numbers may have resembled his passing numbers against Seattle. It's possible the team turns back to Foles if they make the playoffs, but at this point it doesn't look like Foles will get a chance to shake the rust in the regular season.

Colt McCoy placed on IR

Redskins coach Jay Gruden announced Tuesday that the neck injury that knocked Colt McCoy out of last Sunday’s loss to the Giants won’t heal in time for him to play in the final two games of the season and that he’ll be placed on injured reserve as a result.

Fantasy Impact:

The story added that Gruden doesn’t think the team will bring in another quarterback, leaving Kirk Cousins to serve as the No. 2 behind again-starter Robert Griffin III. Washington hosts the Eagles in Week 16.

RGIII expected to start against the Eagles

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said the plan is to start Robert Griffin III Saturday against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact:

It's actually a pretty nice matchup for RGIII against an Eagles defense that is prone to getting torched through the air. Griffin would still come with great risk at this time of year, however.

Nick Foles won't be ready Week 16

Monday, December 15, 2014, 1:21pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Eagles coach Chip Kelly told reporters that starter Nick Foles would not be ready to play this week, leaving the job to Mark Sanchez.

Fantasy Impact:

Foles had tests on his broken collarbone, but they did not show the level of healing necessary to put him back on the field, the story added. Sanchez hasn't produced good fantasy numbers his last two games now. The Week 16 match is a much better one on paper at Washington, but at this point, if you're still alive, Sanchez is tough to trust as your starting QB.
