MNF fantasy points projections to help you set your lineup

Need some last minute start/sit advice? Fantasy points projections can help, and we’ve got them for Week 14 Monday Night Football.

The Giants head to Philadelphia to try to spoil the Eagles chances for the playoffs. And they’ll face their long time rival Eli Manning, as Daniel Jones will miss this week due to a sprained ankle.

The Eagles are 5-7 but a win ties their record with the Dallas Cowboys who set atop the NFC East with a 6-7 record. We can laugh and point all we like, but one of those two teams will host a playoff game this season.

Matchups are crucial, but it helps to see what the analytics are saying about potential performances. Looking at ESPN fantasy projections, there are plenty of start/sit decisions to consider for both teams.

Wentz leads the projections with 18.9 fantasy points due to the Giants poor pass defense, while Saquon Barkley leads the Giants projections at 18. Last year Manning helped Barkley to 90+ receptions, which would be the likely way Barkley attacks the Eagles tough defensive line.
