Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Spin
Carson Wentz completed 31-of-40 passes for 319 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' 17-9, Week 16 win over the Cowboys. Playing with the world's most injured supporting cast, Wentz still managed to complete 77.5 percent of his passes as the Eagles took a huge step toward winning the NFC East. If the Birds beat the Giants in Week 17, they will be division champions. Already down Nelson Agholor, Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson, Wentz will have uncertain situations with Zach Ertz (ribs) and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (foot) for the finale. Wentz needed a torrid second half and overtime to overcome the G-Men in Week 14.
New York Giants Fantasy Spin
Daniel Jones completed 28-of-42 passes for 352 yards and five touchdowns in the Giants' Week 16 overtime win over Washington. It was a career day for Jones after missing the last two weeks with a high-ankle sprain. Jones had his way with an injured Redskins secondary, averaging 8.4 YPA on his 28 completions. He played most of the game with Darius Slayton on the sideline, forcing him to spread it out, with five different receivers catching at least four passes. Jones led the Giants to a win in overtime on a goal-line throw to Kaden Smith, who caught two of his five touchdowns. Jones now has an impressive 23:11 TD/INT ratio over his 11 starts. He'll close out the regular season against the Eagles in Week 17.
The under is 6-1 in the Eagles’ last seven games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
The under is 6-0 in the Giants’ last six games after accumulating more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.
NFL Week 17 Prediction

On the other side, the over is 27-11 in the Eagles’ last 38 road games, is 17-8 in their last 25 games played in the month of December and is 20-6 in their last 26 road games versus an opponent with a losing home record.
