McKinnon found the end zone against the Saints, but saw just 11 touches, as the Vikings leaned on Latavius Murray to try to protect their lead in the second half. The same may be true this weekend against the Eagles, though Philadelphia is outstanding against opposing backs, allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to the position. They did allow five receiving touchdowns to running backs, however, which was tied for the most in the league. That could portend good things for McKinnon this weekend, though he's still a risky fantasy play.Diggs is surely riding high after the "Minneapolis Miracle" last weekend, and will look to continue the wave heading into Philadelphia this weekend. The Eagles have a fine defense overall, but they struggled against outside receivers like Diggs, as neither Ronald Darby nor Jalen Mills was particularly strong in coverage. Given his involvement lately, as well as the fine matchup, Diggs needs to be considered one of, if not the top option at receiver for Championship Sunday.

The strength of the Eagles against running backs is stopping the run, they gave up 91 receptions for 653 yards and 5 touchdowns to running backs. McKinnon has the best chance to have a fantasy impact this week among Minnesota backs.The Eagles are 21st against fantasy wide receivers and Diggs has scored a touchdown in four straight games. He is a very good fantasy option this week.
