Arizona Cardinals DFS Spin
Kyler Murray completed 27-of-37 passes for 380 yards, one touchdown and one interception, adding nine scrambles for 31 yards and a rushing score in Arizona's Week 5 30-10 cakewalk over the Jets. Sunday was already the sixth time Murray eclipsed 300 yards in his budding career, finishing with a career-high mark from under center. His two-yard designed rushing score was also his fifth touchdown on the ground, moving him to second in the league among all players in rushing scores. The Jets offered minimal pressure throughout, allowing the second-year pro to average 10.2 YPA and continue his thriving rapport with DeAndre Hopkins (6/131/1) with ease. Murray even took numerous chances downfield, finding Hopkins in particular for massive gains of 45 and 37 yards in the second half. Next Monday's contest between the Cardinals and Cowboys offers fireworks for all involved.
Dallas Cowboys DFS Spin
Andy Dalton completed 9-of-11 passes for 111 yards in the Cowboys' 37-34, Week 5 win over the Giants. Dalton came on with 6:33 left in the third quarter after Dak Prescott broke his ankle. It's Dalton's team moving forward for the remainder of 2020. He didn't do much of note before the final, game-winning drive when he hit Michael Gallup for a couple huge gains to get the Cowboys in field goal range. Dalton averaged a robust 10.1 yards per attempt in relief. He's no Prescott, but this is the best supporting cast of skill players Dalton will have ever played with, so maybe he can have some streaming appeal. The Cowboys host the Cardinals in Week 6.
