News: Maclin had four receptions for 62 yards in Saturday's loss to Washington.
Impact: After averaging 99 receiving yards and scoring eight touchdowns in eight games started by Nick Foles, Maclin has averaged just 68 yards and scored twice in seven games with Mark Sanchez at the helm. Despite going to the air 50 times Saturday, Sanchez seemed reluctant to take any shots down the field with Maclin, instead throwing to tight end Zack Ertz a whopping 18 times, mostly on short and intermediate routes. Temper your expectations for Maclin next week against the Giants if Sanchez starts again.
News: McCoy had 22 carries for 88 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's loss to Washington. He added three receptions for 28 yards.
Impact: McCoy's total of 116 yards was his highest mark since the Eagles' Thanksgiving blowout of the Cowboys. It wasn't enough to prevent the Eagles from dropping a third straight game, but fantasy owners in championship games this week should be pleased with his output. In leagues that play in Week 17, McCoy should be a strong play against the Giants' 30th-ranked run defense.
News: Polk (ankle) is active for Saturday's game against Washington.
Impact: Polk was little more than a handcuff consideration for LeSean McCoy owners prior to last week, but he may have emerged from Sunday's loss to Dallas as a prominent red-zone specialist for the Eagles. He poached two short touchdown runs despite otherwise not touching the ball. Still, he mostly remains a handcuff player aside from very deep formats due to the uncertainty over his specific role.
News: Matthews (knee) is active for Saturday's game against Washington.
Impact: Matthews headed into the weekend with a probable designation, so he was fully expected to play his normal role in this game. Despite the recent struggles of quarterback Mark Sanchez, the fact that Matthews faces off against a profoundly weak Washington secondary gives reason to hope for a bounce-back game after catching just two passes for 23 yards over the last two weeks. Matthews caught eight passes for 59 yards and two scores in Philadelphia's first game against Washington this year.
