Blount gained just 15 total yards on Monday against the Raiders, and has been far surpassed by Jay Ajayi in the pecking order of the Eagles backfield. With the No. 1 seed locked up, however, the Eagles could opt to rest Ajayi and give more work to Blount next weekend against the Cowboys. Monitor word out of Philadelphia to see how the situation breaks down, but obviously don't plan to start Blount unless there is word that he'll see a huge workload.Jeffery presents an interesting dilemma for fantasy owners in Week 17. On the one hand, with the No. 1 seed locked up, the Eagles are likely to pull their starters early against Dallas. On the other, Jeffery is coming off a game where he was shut out entirely, and he and Nick Foles need to work on their chemistry. The prudent bet is for Foles and Jeffery to both play the first half, and for Foles to target him heavily in an attempt to get on the same page. That should be enough to make Jeffery a startable option against a Cowboys team that gives up a ton of points to wide receivers. Jeffery's upside is likely limited given that he probably won't play a full game, but he should make the most of the two quarters or so that he's likely to play.
