Dallas Cowboys Fantasy Spin
Dak Prescott (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Cowboys' final injury report. Prescott will start for the team's season-defining Week 16 matchup against the Eagles. The offense might have to rely on his arm if the Eagles' pass-funnel defense is able to stop the run. Still, the Cowboys have managed to rush for 187, 129, 171, 142 and most recently 189 yards in five games against their NFC East rival with Ezekiel Elliott active since 2016. The Cowboys-Eagles' matchup presently boasts a fairly high 46.5 point game total.
Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Spin
Carson Wentz completed 30-of-43 passes for 266 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' Week 15 win over the Redskins. Despite the final line, this was a very erratic game from Wentz, who had three fumbles (one lost) and averaged just 6.2 YPA. Wentz didn't get much help for his supporting cast with Alshon Jeffery (foot, IR) and Nelson Agholor (knee) out, but he came through with a game-winning drive on a four-yard touchdown to Greg Ward. Wentz also had TDs to Zach Ertz and Miles Sanders — a dime he threw off his backfoot to the corner of the end-zone. With the win, the Eagles stayed alive in the NFC East. Philly has an all-important matchup with Dallas in Week 16.
