Monday Night Insight Week 3 - 2021 Fantasy Football

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys

September 27th, 2021 at 8:15PM EST

Eagles Fantasy Insight

Jalen Hurts looks to lead the Eagles on Monday Night against their division rival. The QB7 is a must start in this one, and his rushing upside secures him as a week to week starter no matter the matchup. Hurts has used Miles Sanders in the check down game which makes Sanders a strong flex option or RB2 for your lineups.

Look for DeVonta Smith to have a bounce-back week, as I expect this to be a high scoring affair between the two teams. He’s a WR2 option for your fantasy teams. Jalen Reagor and Quez Watkins are both emergency flex options in deep leagues. The tight ends in Dallas Goedert and Zach Ertz have been underwhelming so far this season. Ertz should remain on your bench, while Goedert is a must start option.

The Eagles D/ST is one to avoid this week with the expectation that the Cowboys score quite a few points this week.

Cowboys Fantasy Insight

Dak Prescott has a tough task against the Philadelphia Eagles defense, but I do expect him to put up low-end QB1 numbers in Week 3. He’ll put up solid numbers and is a must start. I do expect a turnover or two from him, but I also expect multiple touchdowns.

The Philly run defense shut down the 49ers run game for the most part last week, so I’d temper expectations. Ezekiel Elliott is a RB2 this week in my opinion which means that Tony Pollard needs to remain on your bench. Even after such a great week from him, I don’t expect Pollard to be that efficient and see that many targets on a week to week basis.

To many people's surprise, the Eagles secondary has done great against opposing wideouts. I’m looking for both Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb to put up WR1 numbers even with the tough matchup. Cedrick Wilson is a deep league emergency flex option, as we’ve seen blow up weeks from him in years past. 

Both tight ends, Dalton Schultz (TE30) and Blake Jarwin (TE33), should remain on your bench as they continue to eat into each other's fantasy production. The Dallas D/ST should join them on your bench.
