Dallas Cowboys DFS Spin
Amari Cooper (hamstring) wasn’t listed on the Week 1 injury report. The Cowboys managed Cooper’s camp reps but he didn’t miss any practice time this week. Coach Mike McCarthy said Cooper will play at “full capacity.” Cooper is likely to see a lot of Jalen Ramsey in Sunday night's matchup with the Rams.
Los Angeles Rams DFS Spin
Rams signed WR Cooper Kupp to a three-year, $48 million extension. The Rams went with a short-term deal for Kupp, who settled for less than the $20 million annually Keenan Allen got from the Chargers. Kupp's $16 million APY still places him in the top-12 for receivers. Kupp set career highs in 2019 and should take a step forward after the Rams moved on from Brandin Cooks. Signing this extension gives Kupp a chance to land another big contract in his age-31 season.
Cowboys vs. Rams Betting Prediction
The spread in this game has moved from Rams +3 down to L.A. +2 over the past 24 hours. This happened even though Dallas arguably has the better overall team with the better offensive line and quarterback. Something doesn’t add up here and I’m going to play into that feeling by taking the Rams. Aaron Donald is a one-man wrecking crew, capable of disrupting things for a Cowboys offense that underwent some change this offseason with the hiring of new head coach Mike McCarthy. While Kellen Moore was retained as the team’s offensive coordinator, McCarthy will have influence on the offense after calling the plays all those years for Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay. On the other side, the Rams no longer have Todd Gurley, but I’m not sure that’s necessarily a problem. He looked finished a year and a half ago when the Rams made their run to the Super Bowl. I’m backing the home team here.
