Fantasy Impact: The Broncos' line continues to chug along. After a slow start at Houston last week, Denver poured on the points in their traditional fashion. The line is playing well and is healthy and the Raiders' defense won't likely be the unit to slow this attack down. It's a road game against a division foe who stops the run better than you'd think, but none of that will hinder Peyton and company.
Previous: (Week/Rank) 1/2, 2/2, 3/1, 4/1, 5/1, 6/1, 7/1, 8/2, 9/3, 10/2, 11/1, 12/1, 13/1, 14/1, 15/2, 16/2
2. Philadelphia Eagles Excellent Stability / Excellent Health

|2013 Offensive Ranks:|
|Rush YPG: 161.9 (1st)||Sacks Allowed: 41 (T-19th)|
|Pass YPG: 258.7 (9th)||QB Hits Allowed: 72 (14th)|
|Next Opponent: at Dallas (Sunday Night)|
|Rush YPG Allowed: 127.9 (27th)|
|Pass YPG Allowed: 290.7 (31st)|
|Sacks: 29 (31st)|
Injuries: Evan Mathis, questionable (illness)
Backups: (T): Allen Barbre, Dennis Kelly, Matt Tobin (G): (C): Julian Vandervelde
Fantasy Impact: Left guard Evan Mathis may be out or limited this week due to illness, but he will have the extra few hours of sleep/treatment with this being a night game. Philly's line dominated the Bears' defense last week and we could see a similar result Sunday. The Cowboys have all kinds of issues on defense and they aren't a good tackling unit without middle linebacker Sean Lee who is still out. Ride the Eagles' offense.
Previous: (Week/Rank) 1/8, 2/5, 3/5, 4/8, 5/12, 6/12, 7/9, 8/14, 9/16, 10/16, 11/12, 12/9, 13/7, 14/5, 15/4, 16/4
