Raiders- Eagles: Raiders Kill Fantasy Football Owners | NFL Player Rankings
It’s games like this that just kill fantasy football owners. This should have been a great game for all fantasy football owners that have Eagle players. Unfortunately, the Eagles lost at the line of scrimmage all day and lost 13-9.
Raiders Defense Steps Up
For a game that had blow out written all over it, the Raiders put the smack down on the Eagles high flying fun.
For the game Donovan McNabb had 269 yards passing and three players had over 75 yards receiving. At the same time, the Eagles failed to score any touchdowns in this game as they could only get three field goals.
As good as the Eagles look every year to start the season, around this time they start going in a mid year slump. Hopefully, this slump will not last as long as last year funk as it almost cast the team a playoff spot.
Sebastian Janikowski Nails Two Home
If the Raiders can stay in football games like they did in this one, kicker Sebastian Janikowski will have very productive games. In this contest Janikowski had two field goals and one was from 46 yards out. Janikowski has the ability to kick them from 60 plus so if he is in a game that matters his team will give him more chances.
Zach Miller has Big Touchdown
The one decent fantasy football hopeful that is left from this team is their tight end Zach Miller. In this game, Miller had a fabulous catch and run for an 80 plus yard touchdown.
At this time, Miller is a decent bye week fill in if you need to pick up a player on the waiver wire.
David Akers Gets Five Opportunities
Last year David Akers had his first productive fantasy season in a few years and now it looks like the Eagles kicker may have another good year. In this game he missed two of his five chances but he has earned respect from this coaching staff and will continue to get opportunties.
Since the Eagles don’t have a great running back or a big target receiver in the red zone area, their will be games like this one that they need to settle for field goals. Akers should continue to be a productive kicker this year.
