Week 3 fantasy football preview with projections: Eagles at Jaguars

There are several games that project to be high-scoring fantasy football game-breaking affairs. The Eagles at Jaguars is another one.

Anybody who saw what the Eagles did (and what they allowed the Lions to do) last week knows the score for this game could be huge.

Our projection model is not perfect. There are many improvements that could be made, but we have had relatively good accuracy with it this season despite the flaws. Translation: Use these at your own discretion but they should be pretty darn good.

Only the Texans-Cowboys game has a higher projected score this week than the Eagles’ 27-22 predicted win over the Jaguars.

Matchups

Don’t be surprised if this one gets completely out of hand. We’re talking 2 TD passes from David Garrard and a combined 450 yards of total offense from Mike Vick and LeSean McCoy.

Look for Brent Celek to have a good game against the Jaguars, who have allowed the third most fantasy points to tight ends so far this season.

Oh, and Mike Sims-Walker welcomed himself to 2010 with a 10-catch game last week. He’ll find more success against the Eagles secondary this week.

Last week, David Garrard was pulled for Josh McCown who promptly tore his ACL. The Jaguars convinced Todd Bouman to turn in his AARP card and sign as a backup. We’re getting all Garrard unless he gets hurt. Then we’re getting all sorts of bad.

Maurice Jones-Drew? Did you see what Jahvid Best did to the Eagles last week? MJD can do that.
