Tonight’s edition of Sunday Night Football will feature an NFC East rivalry with major playoff implications as the Philadelphia Eagles (10-2) hit the road to battle the Dallas Cowboys (9-3).

Here are some of the best options to consider as you prepare your DFS lineup strategy for tonight’s primetime matchup.

NFL DFS Showdown strategy: Eagles vs. Cowboys

Captain’s Picks

CeeDee Lamb, WR, Dallas Cowboys ($16,800)

Lamb has been a monster for the Cowboys and has been a top receiver in DFS, averaging 23.6 FP per game. He’s hauled in at least 11 receptions in four of his last six games and has found the end zone in four straight outings. The Eagles are giving up the fourth-most passing yards per game in the league at 260.3 and he cooked them for 191 yards the last time they played. Lamb is worth the hefty price as a captain.

Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys ($15,900)

The guy getting Lamb the ball so well is Prescott, who is right in the thick of the MVP conversation. The Cowboys QB has been dialed in over the last three weeks, completing just under 70% of his passes with nine touchdowns to no interceptions during that span. He heads into tonight’s matchup averaging 22.7 FP per game and would be a viable captain option even against a tough defense.

FLEX Options

Dallas Goedert, TE, Philadelphia Eagles ($5,400)

Goedert will make his return for the Eagles tonight after missing the previous three games with a forearm injury. Philly has been a bit slow out the gate with him out of the lineup and he should provide an early spark for the team in this marquee showdown. I’d consider him for one of your flex spots tonight.

Brandon Aubrey, K, Dallas Cowboys ($5,000)

Aubrey has been a reliable presence for the Cowboys and is averaging 10.4 FP per game for DFS users. He’s 7-7 on field goal attempts and 10-12 on extra point attempts over the past three games, meaning he’s left a few points on the table with a few of those misses. He should have plenty of opportunities to put points on the board tonight, so I’d sneak him into your lineups.

Players to Avoid

Tony Pollard, RB, Dallas Cowboys ($8,000)

Philly’s bread is buttered with its front seven and it is yielding the least amount of FP to opposing running backs in the league. The unit is yielding just 90.3 rushing yards per game and that doesn’t bode well for Pollard this evening. He was only able to get 51 yards in their previous outing against the Eagles and I’d stay away from him for tonight.

D’Andre Swift, RB, Philadelphia Eagles ($7,400)

And by the same token, I’d also avoid inserting Swift in your lineup for tonight’s contest. He’s failed to crack double-digit FP in three of his last four outings and that has been tied to his ability to reach the end-zone. I’d lean more towards the Philly pass-catching options for this game and sit Swift for this evening.
