Pay very close attention to the stars of the Eagles vs. 49ers game when weighing your Fantasy start/sit options.
The Philadelphia Eagles enter Week 13 looking to strengthen their hold on the No. 1 seed in the NFC, while the San Francisco 49ers go on the road aiming to take over momentum. Fantasy managers will have their eyes set on this one as stars like quarterback Jalen Hurts and running back Christian McCaffrey take the field.
Those same managers are the ones tasked with making vital decisions on who to put in their lineup and who to keep on the bench. Let's dive into some start/sit options for this thrilling NFC showdown.
Start: A.J. Brown, WR (Philadelphia Eagles)
This recommendation is more about making sure Fantasy managers don't overthink a decision than it is anything else. A.J. Brown has tallied just 111 yards over his last three games, but that yardage has come on 13 receptions and has resulted in two touchdowns. His Fantasy value never really took a hit.
Brown has an opportunity to keep his production going as San Francisco has allowed the fourth-most receptions to opposing wide receivers in the NFL (164). The Ole Miss product has logged at least eight targets in nine of Philly's 11 games, which shows that his connection with Hurts remains secure.
It's worth noting that this game also has a listed point total of 47.5 and a spread set at 2.5 points on FanDuel Sportsbook. The expectation is a back-and-forth high-scoring battle will break out. That only heightens Brown's Fantasy ceiling as he should be hauling in passes until the the final whistle blows.
