Green Bay Packers Fantasy Spin
Davante Adams (toe) won't suit up Sunday against the Cowboys. Marquez Valdes-Scantling should take over as the Packers' No. 1 WR with Adams sidelined. The Cowboys have allowed the second-fewest receiving yards per game to WRs lined up in the slot this season (per Sports Info Solutions), and MVS (28 targets) has easily been Rodgers' preferred target compared to Geronimo Allison (11) through four weeks. Jake Kumerow is expected to take Adams' spot in 3-WR sets.
Dallas Cowboys Fantasy Spin
Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) said he's good to go for Sunday's matchup against the Packers. Gallup is fully expected to suit up Sunday after missing two games despite being listed as questionable. Still, there's a threat of limited snaps here with Gallup potentially still not operating at 100%. Devin Smith offers the type of field-stretching goodness that could certainly lead to Gallup playing more of a limited role than usual for at least a week. Approach Gallup as more of a WR4 in this tough matchup against the Packers' run-funnel defense.
