The Monday Night Football game between the Eagles and the Cowboys was total domination from start to finish. The Eagles couldn’t get anything going to put progressive drives together, as Jalen Hurts looked like he was overwhelmed on an NFL field while the Dallas defensive unit actually looked serviceable.
Based on how the game went, the recommendations for SuperDraft DFS from the game did not necessarily all pan out how we had hoped.
Below is a recap from my top three plays for the Monday game on SuperDraft DFS.
DeVonta Smith (1.75x score multiplier)
Smith’s multiplier was attractive, and this is a well that I would comfortably go back to 10 out of 10 times, but the Eagles’ offense just didn’t have it on Monday. Smith finished second on the team in targets (6) to Jalen Reagor (8), but was often consumed by the defense from Trevon Diggs. Finishing with only three catches for 28 yards, Smith was, unfortunately, a complete bust.
Jalen Hurts (1.1x)
The sentiment about Smith also rings true for Hurts. He struggled under pressure all night and ended up throwing his first two interceptions on the season. The silver lining, however, was the fact that he was able to pile up 326 passing yards and two touchdowns in addition to 35 yards on the ground. He finished with 25.54 fantasy points, equating to 28.09 after his 10% multiplier. He was a mainstay in winning lineups but unfortunately wasn’t enough to cover the bust that the majority of this receiving attack was.
CeeDee Lamb (1.35x)
Lamb got his night off to a hot start with a 44-yard reception that saw him down at the goal line, but he wasn’t able to muster up much after that catch. He finished with only three targets, typing Ezekiel Elliott for third on the team, in a game where Prescott was only forced to throw 26 times. He turned those three targets into three catches for 66 yards and was held out of the end zone.
Finishing with 10.94 fantasy points after his multiplier, he was another player that simply did not move the needle.
1. Devonta Smith (11.40 champion points)
2. Jalen Hurts (42.14)
3. Dak Prescott (31.68)
4. CeeDee Lamb (15.58)
5. Ezekiel Elliott (55.22)
