Jason Avant – The Spot Start

Jason Avant has come into his own this year. Especially with a real QB throwing him the ball in All Pro Michael Vick.  Last game he caught 5 balls for 76 yards and a TD. Granted, that was a blowout and the Eagles THRASHED the Redskins.

Lets take his stats a bit further back. Week 9 nothing 2 for 41 yards. Week 8 BYE. Week 7 he caught 6 balls for 60 yards. Week 6 five catches for 62. Since Vick has brought the Eagles to “Superbowl” contention Jason Avant has turned into his possession receiver. In week 11 where injures to Steve Smith and other key WRs has become a concern suddenly Jason Avant has some viability.

The Eagles are playing against their division rivals the Giants on Sunday Night Football. WE know both teams are going to come to play. With Celek’s game going into the shitter suddenly Avant looks like Vick’s go to slot receiver. I give him two thumbs up as a spot start this week.
