MATCHUP SUMMARY

The Carolina Panthers (3-1) suffered their first loss of the year last week in Dallas 36-28. The defense which had allowed only 30 points in the first three weeks combined gave up 433 yards and 36 points to the Cowboys. The offense tried to keep up scoring 28 points led by Sam Darnold’s 301 yards passing and two touchdowns and DJ Moore’s 8 receptions for 113 yards and two touchdowns. This week the Panthers should get back on track against an Eagles defense that allowed 42 points to the Chiefs last week and five touchdown passes from Patrick Mahomes. I look for Darnold and Moore to have success again this week in this matchup. After missing last week, the status of star running back Christian McCaffrey is still up in the air but he did return to practice on Wednesday on a limited basis. If he is to miss another week Chuba Hubbard will get another start.

After their big opening week win in Atlanta 32-6 the Philadelphia Eagles have now dropped three straight games and are heading in the wrong direction as they travel to Carolina to take on the Panthers. The Eagles have yet to get their running game going through four weeks as Miles Sanders only has 37 rushing attempts which ranks him tied for 33rd in the league. Rookie Kenneth Gainwell played well last week with 89 total yards and a touchdown in a loss to the Chiefs. Jalen Hurts threw for 387 yards and two touchdowns last week and rookie wide receiver Devonta Smith had his first 100-yard receiving day with 7 catches for 122 yards.

 

THE DFS GEMS

Jalen Hurts, PHI – $7,000 on DraftKings. Hurts has had at least 22 Draft Kings points each week and has been even better the last two weeks throwing for 713 yards and 4 touchdowns against the Cowboys and Chiefs. For the Eagles to pull off the road upset he will need to have another big game here.

DJ Moore, CAR – $7,500 on DraftKings. Moore has been a fantasy stud through the first four weeks and got a big price increase this week on Draft Kings. I think this might keep people off him this week but I have no issue with going right back to him here. He has had 35 targets the last three weeks and has caught 24 of them for 318 yards and three touchdowns.
