Desean Jackson will be facing off against the 10th ranked pass defense in the league. Not to mention one of the best pass rushing defensive lines. With Philadelphia having trouble protecting Vick, and Vick having trouble protecting the ball; it may be in your best interest to look elsewhere this week. I think your options are between Torrey Smith and Andre Roberts. The downside to Torrey Smith is the match up versus the number one ranked pass defense in the league. Smith has been improving this season on his route running and has seen more targets than the typical deep ball, but he is still the deep threat guy and is usually running a lot of streak and post routes. Andre Roberts is playing the 24th ranked defense in Buffalo. That stat is highlighted with a total of 12 passing touchdowns given up through the air already. He also plays well when they are at home. He has 14 of his 20 catches in Arizona and 3 of his 4 touchdowns. The match up is more favorable and Arizona is on extra rest after playing the last Thursday night football game.
My Advice. Go with Andre Roberts. As for the tight end dilema. Pettigrew has only seen the end zone once this season. Bennett is a red zone stud for Eli and you should definitely start him this week
