Slayton has the fifth-best individual matchup of the week, according to Pro Football Focus. However, the switch at QB seems to be a downgrade for Slayton, since Eli Manning will be less likely to throw it deep down the sideline than Daniel Jones was. Slayton is a WR4 with high upside this week, but he appears to be a boom or bust option, which may not be what you want/need in the fantasy playoffs.

With both Evan Engram and Golden Tate out of the lineup, it allowed Slayton to see nine targets against the Packers last week. It seems we may get both back this week, which would surely hamper our trust in Slayton. He's clearly carved out a bigger role in the offense, as he's seen 30 targets over the last three weeks, but with other important pieces in and out of the lineup has clearly influenced that. The Eagles are a team to attack on the perimeter, though. The combination of Ronald Darby and Jalen Mills haven't been what you'd describe as "good" in coverage this year, allowing a combined 98.2 QB Rating in their coverage. Each of the eight wide receivers who've totaled 100-plus yards against them have been primary perimeter options. The big wildcard here is not knowing who will play. If both Tate and Engram play, he's the No. 5 option in the passing game. If they're both out, he's the No. 3 option. With this game not being played until Monday night, it's best to err on the side of caution and consider him a low-end WR4/high-end WR5 who would be upgraded if Tate/Engram were out.
