NFL Fantasy Football Draft News 9-30-2015
It will be a battle in the NFC East division as the Washington Redskins will host the Philadelphia Eagles. NFL fantasy draft GM’s can tune to FOX on Sunday October 4th at 1PM Eastern Time from Washington to track the results of their one day football real money leagues.
Both teams are 1-2 on the campaign. They split their two regular season meetings from a year ago. It was Washington who knocked the Eagles out of the playoffs last year as the Redskins earned a 27-24 victory at home in late December.
The Las Vegas odds believe that Philadelphia will win this game as they are favored by a field goal on the road in this spot. A total of 47 points reveals that the oddsmakers still believe that the Eagles will find their offense. Philadelphia got their first win last week by defeating the New York Jets 24-17. It was not a very impressive victory by Philadelphia as they were aided to victory by Jets mistakes. A Darren Sproles 89 yard punt return made the difference in this game. The Eagles offense did very little with 123 rushing yards on 39 carries and a mere 108 yards through the pass. Halftime adjustments by the Jets defense were effective as they held Philadelphia scoreless in the second half of the game. The Eagles are 31st in total offensive yards with an average of just 285 yards per game. They are 30th and third last in the league in rushing yardage per game and score just 19 points a game ranking 22nd. On defense the Eagles are holding teams to 21 points a game an improved 11th in the NFL.
The Washington Redskins are looking to bounce back from a 32-21 loss at the Giants on Thursday Night Football over a week ago. Heading into this game the Redskins defense has looked improved from the prior season. Washington contained the run well but allowed 279 yards passing and two touchdown passes by Eli Manning. The Redskins were sloppy with three turnovers for the game and they forced no miscues by New York. Washington still ranks second in yardage allowed defensively as opponent’s average just 277 yards per game on the Redskins.
