Monday Night Football DFS: Week 3by Brandon Braasch September 27, 2021 0 comments
This week’s Monday Night Football game features a matchup between two division rivals at the Philadelphia Eagles head to Jerry’s World to face the Dallas Cowboys. This will be a great battle with the winner taking over first place in the NFC East. Let’s take a look at the top players in this matchup.
DraftKings Captain | FanDuel MVP
Jalen Hurts (DK 16,500 | FD 16,500)
The Eagle’s offense has shown a lot of speed this season. Hurts is very good for DFS because he can use his legs as well as throw the ball downfield. He has 17 rushing attempts for 144 yards in the first two games. In the passing attack, Hurts has fast receivers on the outside and two very good tight ends in the middle. If the Eagles get down, look for Hurts to rack up the fantasy points.
Dak Prescott (DK 11,200 | FD 16,000)
Last week was all about the running game as the Cowboys took down the Los Angeles Chargers. This week, Dak will have to air it out because the Eagles have a very solid run defense. They have yet to allow more than 100 rushing yards in a game this season. Their defense has also looked good against the pass. However, Dak and the Cowboy’s offense is much better than the Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers. Look for Dak and the passing attack to take over in this matchup.
Jalen Reagor (DK 6,200 | FD 7,500)
Reagor had a huge touchdown last week but stepped out of bounds before he was able to secure the catch. He has that big-play ability and Hurts will continue to throw deep to the speedster. He’s received 11 targets this year and that will continue to go up as he gets more and more reps with Hurts. There is plenty of focus on Eagle’s first-round pick DeVonta Smith but people seem to forget Reagor was the 2020 first-round pick for the Eagles. Look for him to show why he was also a top pick tonight.
Blake Jarwin (DK 3,000 | FD 6,000)
Dalton Schultz has been the main tight end in terms of snaps. However, Jarwin has still gotten opportunities and comes at a cheaper price. He has had three catches in both games this season. If he can find the end zone, he will provide enough value and help save you enough money to afford both the quarterbacks in this game.
