Avant produced his second-best game of the season last Sunday against the Giants in terms of yardage, gaining 54 yards through the air on three catches. Unfortunately, that will be his ceiling with Matt Barkley starting for the Eagles on Sunday at Oakland.
Avant remains a possession receiver with little usage in fantasy leagues, though he could see increased targets Sunday, as Matt Barkley does not possess the same arm strength as Michael Vick or Nick Foles. Still, Avant has just one touchdown on the season, and has garnered more than 75 receiving yards in a contest just once this season. Your team must be in real trouble if you're even considering playing Avant this weekend.
