Eagles(24.5) AT Cowboys (27.5)


On paper, we have the best matchup of the week with a high total of 51.5 points and a close spread of 3. Jalen Hurts is off a loss many of us expected and now travels to Dallas for yet another difficult game. I am on the Cowboys side in this game but do think we should see a great back-and-forth game here. The pricing is tough up top with Hurts at 11K flat but I will continue to try and jam him in at Captain in these showdown slates with his big rushing upside. I will be around 20% Hurts Captain which will get me overweight the field. Jalen has a pass/rush prop of 298.5 yards and is -140 to score a touchdown.

Dak is back home where he has thrived this season and holds a 10.6K tag. He is projected to be around 10% in the Captain spot tonight and I want to be around 17-22% on him. In his last 4 home games, Dak has scored at least 28 DK points and gets a great matchup vs a poor Eagles secondary. I do want to pair up at least 1 pass catcher with him as Captain. Dak has a pass/rush prop of 319.5 yards and is +445 to score a touchdown.


D’Andre Swift 7.4K is a mid-range option I will have exposure to here. We should see him used in the passing game some and holds solid rushing upside. I think he will be lower owned as his game log isn’t the best when people look at that. I will be around the field on him at 25% or so but only in the Flex. Kenneth Gainwell out-snapped Swift last week catching 5 passes for 42 yards. We need value on this slate and I think Gainwell is a great cheapie at 4.6K. I will be well overweight on the field on Gainwell in the Flex only tonight as he is only projected to be around 10-15%. The rush/rec props are Swift 73.5 and Gainwell 21.5 yards with Swift +145 to score and Gainwell +412.

Tony Pollard has now scored in 3 straight games but has only scored over 20 DK points once since week 1 and will be a Flex-only option for me tonight at 8K. Pollard had 20 carries last week but was only able to total 68 yards less than 4 yards per carry. Rico Dowdle should continue to see work and I would project him to play 15-20 snaps. He is a fine GPP Flex option at 3K flat. Tony has a rush/rec prop of 85.5 yards and Rico has a 21.5-yard prop. Pollard is one of the favorites on the slate to score at -141.


AJ Brown 10.2K is 1K cheaper than CeeDee but holds a similar ceiling. Brown has been held in check to a degree recently after a great start to the season. Brown did hit the 100-yard bonus last week catching 8 of 13 targets and should once again be in a passing script as I expect Dallas to be ahead most of the game. I think AJ is one of the Alphas in this league and want to be overweight on him in both the Captain and Flex positions. Brown should be around 10% in the Captain tonight and I will look to be around 15-20%. I have been talking up DeVonta the last couple of weeks on the Milly show and will continue to go back to him here at a nice tag of 8.4K. Smith has now registered 95+ yards in 4 of 5 games and has scored in 4 of 5 games as well. Smith will be one of the highest-owned players on the slate and will target him in both the Captain and Flex spot. I will be overprojecting him to 17 DK points tonight. Quez will be a value I get overweight on as he returned last week to catch 3 of 4 targets for 28 yards and the script should benefit him tonight. Receiving props are Brown 80.5, Smith 54.5, and Watkins 14.5 yards. AJB is +125 to score and Smith is +175.

CeeDee Lamb is in a great spot tonight and holds the slate-high 11.2 tag. Lamb has been a monster at home this season scoring 35+ DK points in 3 of the last 4 home games and gets the nut matchup here. Lamb has now scored in 4 straight games and caught 12 of 17 targets last week for 116 yards. Great Captain and Flex option tonight and is projected to be the highest-owned Captain at around 16-19%. Cooks at 7K flat is just a great Showdown type play with his upside. Cooks has caught a touchdown in 5 of the last 7 games and will be a mid-range guy I look to get overweight on in the Flex spot. Gallup has trouble catching the ball but is only 3.2K and is fine for the Flex to save salary. I would rather click on Tolbert at 2.8K as a cheapie in the Flex. Turpin is also a fine GPP upside punt at 1.6K. Receiving props are Lamb 92.5 yards, Cooks 47.5, Gallup 15.5, Tolbert 15.5, and Turpin 8.5 yards. Lamb is the game favorite to score a TD at -144 with Cooks at +180.


Dallas Goedert looks to be back this week and is priced at 5.4K. Tight ends have had fair success vs Dallas this year and the 5.4K tag is a solid value. I will be projecting him for around 9-11 DK points and see how much I get in the Flex. Goedert has a rec prop of 35.5 yards and is +310 to score.

On the Cowboys side, Jake Ferguson is priced a little higher at 6.8K. I think this price is a little thin for his baseline projection and will most likely end up underweight. He caught 6 for 77 and one last week for 19 DK points but we also know he can turn over a 3 for 32 like he did vs Carolina a couple of weeks ago. Schoonmaker is a fine GPP punt option and has caught a pass in 5 of his last 6 games. Ferguson has a rec prop of 44.5 yards.


The defenses are fairly priced here at 3.6 and 4K flat but I do expect plenty of offense and scoring in this game so I will be underweight on both defenses. I like both kickers for value tonight at 4.8 and 5K flat and will project them for around 8-9 points and see how much I get in the Flex.


CeeDee Lamb (CAPT) + Dak Prescott + DeVonta Smith 4.7K left per position
