Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Spin
Eagles coach Doug Pederson implied DeSean Jackson (abdomen) will miss Week 7 against the Cowboys. Jackson has reportedly made progress in his recovery from a strained abdomen, though he still hasn't played or practiced since Week 2. He won't be in uniform Sunday at Dallas and should be officially ruled out when final injury reports are submitted Friday afternoon. Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollins have been operating as Philadelphia's top receivers throughout Jackson's absence.
Dallas Cowboys Fantasy Spin
According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Randall Cobb (back) will do "something" at Friday's practice. La'El Collins (knee), Amari Cooper (ankle/quad), Byron Jones (hamstring), Zack Martin (ankle/back) and Tyron Smith (ankle) will also be on hand for Friday's session, the last practice work the Cowboys will get before their primetime showdown with Philadelphia Sunday night. Friday will mark the first reps Cobb has seen since injuring his back at practice last week. With Cobb and Cooper both question marks for Sunday, last-man-standing Michael Gallup should be a home run fantasy play, particularly given all the injury and bye-week carnage at the position.
NFL Betting Trends
The over is 8-1 in the Eagles’ last nine games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
The over is 9-1 in the Cowboys’ last 10 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
The over is 6-1 in the Cowboys’ last seven conference games, is 6-0 in their last six divisional matchups and is 7-1 in their last eight games coming off a loss. The over is also 24-10 in the Eagles’ last 34 road games, is 4-1 in their last five conference games and is 35-16 in their last 51 games following a loss. With Cooper and the Cowboys’ offensive linemen expected back this week, the Dallas offense should fire on all cylinders versus a banged-up Philadelphia secondary that cannot defend the pass. This should be a good shootout in Big D on Sunday night.
