The Eagles are in Detroit for an intriguing Week 1 matchup against the Lions, and the season opener means fantasy football is back.
Philadelphia has a loaded offense with plenty of options and a quarterback in Jalen Hurts, who is a must-start in some leagues because of his dual-threat ability.
The Eagles are a sneaky team to play on defense with talented upgrades throughout the roster and a secondary among the NFL’s best on paper.

Smith had some success against Lions cornerback Amani Oruwariye in 2021, and the season opener offers an exciting matchup.
Oruwariye. He has allowed 1,315 receiving yards over the last two seasons, sixth-most among cornerbacks per PFF.
Jeff Okudah’s 31.3 coverage grade over the last two seasons ranked second-worst among 169 qualifying cornerbacks, and the expectation is that Detroit will play a ton of man coverage.
