Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Eagles are 1-point favorites to beat the Texans. The total, meanwhile, sits at 46 points. As of this writing, 61% of the public betting tickets are on the Eagles to cover the point spread.

Houston Texans

Keke Coutee (hamstring) remained limited at Thursday's practice. Coutee hasn't played since Week 12 while nursing a nagging hamstring injury. Even if he earns the green light for Sunday's game in Philadelphia, fantasy owners should probably be looking elsewhere for receiver help.

Philadelphia Eagles

Zach Ertz (ankle) was upgraded to full participation at Thursday's practice. As expected, Ertz will be good to go Sunday against Houston. His 101 catches this year are a franchise record. Even against one of the league's better defenses, Ertz belongs in all fantasy lineups.
