Says Pro Football Focus:

Fantasy facts: Last week certainly looked good for Miles Sanders, as the rookie ranked 10th among running backs in fantasy scoring for the week. It’s easy to be encourage by his production, but be careful. Sanders put up this numbers while playing just 19 of the Eagles 65 offensive snaps. Jordan Howard was on the field for 40 snaps. And Sanders’ six touches was just two more than Boston Scott saw. There’s still potential for Sanders to offer fantasy upside down the stretch, but his fantasy owners need to exercise patience.

Matchup upgrade: With Amari Cooper banged up, Michael Gallup could find himself as the top receiving target in the Dallas offense this week. That’s great news for anyone with Gallup on their fantasy rosters. Gallup gets a fantastic WR/CB matchup this week. Philadelphia is coming off an ugly Week 6 performance where Stefon Diggs went absolutely nuts, racking up seven catches for 167 yards and three scores, with a long of 62 yards. That play came against Rasul Douglas, who should be matched up plenty against Gallup this week.

Matchup downgrade: The Eagles run defense has been one of the league’s stingiest units, allowing just 2.98 yards per carry to opposing backs in 2019. They’re also the fourth-worst fantasy matchup for the position. Now, that doesn’t mean you bench Ezekiel Elliott in season-long leagues. Studs are starters regardless of the matchup. However, Elliott is much less appealing in DFS contests this week. He’s a fade this week, especially in cash game lineups.

Key injuries: In addition to Cooper, Randall Cobb is trending toward not playing again this week. Look for the Cowboys to use Gallup along with Tavon Austin and Devin Smith against the Eagles. … DeSean Jackson is nearing a return, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen this week.
