Jason Avant's Updated 2013 Fantasy Outlook After Week 3

Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistSeptember 20, 2013

Philadelphia Eagles receiver Jason Avant's fantasy stock continues to steadily rise after a big performance on Thursday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Avant was quarterback Michael Vick's top target in this gave. The receiver had 87 yards and a touchdown on five receptions in the game. He had two catches of at least 22 yards in the game, including one for a touchdown.

The 30-year-old got off to a slow start this year. He had only two receptions for 13 yards in the opener, but he had 39 yards on four catches in Week 2. 

Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson has had an incredible start to the season. However, he was the only wideout on the roster to have more than 100 receiving yards entering Thursday night's game. Avant changed that with his big night against the Chiefs.

Avant is currently on pace for close to 750 receiving yards and five touchdowns this season. Fantasy football owners everywhere would take those numbers for their secondary receivers.
