Fantasy owners should not be fooled by Eagles DST
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com (12/6/13) Fantasy owners should not get too excited about the resurgence of the Eagles DST. Yes, the team has won four in a row and given up an average of 17.5 points in their last four games. Yes, they have forced nine turnovers in those games. But a quick glance at the offensive competition sounds a warning
They earned those victories against Oakland, Green Bay (without Aaron Rodgers), Washington and Arizona. None is exactly an offensive juggernaut. Week 14 foe Detroit is not only explosive, they are also on an offensive roll. The Eagles secondary has been terrible most of the year. They have no one who can adequately cover Calvin Johnson.
The Eagles rank dead last in the NFL in passing yards surrendered (3,561) and are also weak against the run, which adds up to a ranking of 31st in overall defense. They are indeed playing better these days, but that could be more a reflection of the competition than growth. Don't even think about placing their DST in your Fantasy lineups this week.
Earl Wolff likely to miss third straight game
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (12/3/13) Eagles free safety Earl Wolff, who's missed two straight games with a knee injury, says there's only a slim chance he'll play Week 14 vs. the Lions, reports CSNPhilly.com. Wolff is targeting Week 15 at Minnesota for his return.
Eagles have two interceptions, five sacks
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer (12/1/13) The Eagles came into Week 13 on a very quiet roll -- the only DST in Fantasy to have double-digit games over the last five. Aand they came out of the bye swinging, sacking Carson Palmer five times and intercepting him twice.
This was the fourth straight game with an interception for the Eagles and the five sacks tied a season high. They also forced a first-quarter fumble, compliments of Palmer.
Things get a little more difficult in Week 14, as the Eagles face a high-flying Lions offense. But in deeper formats, the Eagles remain a nice sleeper option.

The Eagles DST can only improve this season since they were last in Fantasy points in 2012 with 96 in a standard league. The Eagles DST was the only team that failed to reach 100 points with just eight interceptions, 30 sacks, five fumble recoveries and one defensive touchdown. New defensive coordinator Billy Davis has his work cut out for him, but the Eagles still have plenty of talent to succeed with Trent Cole, DeMeco Ryans and Pat Chung leading the way. And the possible change from a 4-3 to a 3-4 scheme might help as well. Don't draft the Eagles DST in the majority of leagues, but keep an eye on their progress to start the season. If they get off to a good start then add them off the waiver wire. (Updated 4/26/13)
