Philadelphia gave up the 2nd most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 21.6.BENCH - Chicago gave up the 2nd fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 12.3.

He destroyed the Eagles week 11 a year ago: 200 yards and 4 TDs passing and 84 yards on the ground.   
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Perhaps a bit too harsh on Griffin here, but, in first week back after seeing no action in preseason/expressing sincere over-eagerness to get back on the field we should expect to see an uneven effort.

Shootout   
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
Being ranked 9th on our list is simply due to his January 9th ACL tear. Analysts have harped all off-season that Griffin needs to eliminate unnecessary hits when scrambling for extra yardage. His success will be determined by his health and ability to stay on the field. If Adrian Peterson showed us anything last season, it was that coming off major knee surgery and succeeding is definitely possible.The tier from Cutler on down to Flacco should state – “You get what you get.”

QB2 and RB2 combined when healthy equals an elite fantasy optionBernard is the weapon Dalton needs to take next step  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
From everything we've heard thus far, there's no reason to expect RGIII won't be ready to roll by opening day. If he is completely healthy, he's a very good fantasy starter. Will the Redskins limit his running opportunities in light of the ACL injury? We'll see.Dalton still has A.J. Green, and the Bengals are hoping the tight end duo of Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert will add some versatility to the passing game. But he can't really throw the ball downfield very effectively, and is pretty average overall.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
RGIII has a dream matchup against an Eagles D that has looked worse in this preseason than they did last season, which is saying something, seeing they ranked just 27th against fantasy quarterbacks last year.   
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
RG3 could be cautious in his first game back, or this could be an explosive shootout. I'll bank on the latter.I don't like this matchup on the road at all for the weak-armed Dalton.  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
RG3 is ahead of schedule with his knee. It is too early to say Adrian Peterson, but everyone believes it is exactly that. He has not lost a step, which means he will still be a running threat. That game against SF late in the season will be one to watch. Look for the Redskins to get Alfred Morris the ball more than ever.Dalton is similar to Matt Stafford by only having 1 WR. But the difference between Stafford and Dalton is Stafford can fling the ball anywhere. Dalton is a West Coast offense QB with an arm that is geared for only 1 WR. Andy is a 3,500 Yard QB with 25 TDs at the very best.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
I think Washington will give Morris a chance to dominate this game to ease RGIII back in, but it's hard to sit him against such a poor pass defense. The Eagles led the league in touchdowns given up through the air. In week 11 he threw for 4 against them last season. I'd really need a top backup to sit him.
