I know, McNabb is getting old, but I think he’s got something left in the tank. He was finally able to stay healthy for a full season last year, and his numbers reflected it.
Prior to last season, he had only thrown for more than 3,800 yards and 22 touchdowns once, and that was in 2004 when he tossed 31 touchdowns, and passed for 3,875 yards in Terrell Owens’ first year with the team.
Last year he threw for a career best 3,916 yards.
He can still run with the ball too, gaining 147 yards on 39 carries, and scoring 2 touchdowns on the ground.
With DeSean Jackson entering his second year, and rookie speedster Jeremy Maclin joining the Eagles via the draft, McNabb finally has two viable options at receiver.
The additions of Jason Peters and Stacy Andrews at offensive tackle, and LeSean McCoy at running back, should only help.
If Kevin Curtis can come back from an injury plagued 2008 season, and second year guy Brent "Tom" Celek step in and give them a better option at tight-end, it will only bolster McNabb’s fantasy value even more.
McNabb probably has only one more, maybe two, really good years left in him, and I think this year will be one of those. Don’t let him slip past the early to mid fourth round.
Projected 2009 totals: 3,984 passing yards, 198 rushing yards, 26 total touchdowns
