Start: Amari Cooper, Dallas Cowboys
vs. Philadelphia Eagles
This seems like a perfect storm for Amari Cooper to have another big performance. He has enjoyed a lot of success since joining the Dallas Cowboys and now faces a Philadelphia Eagles secondary that has had its share of issues this year.
Philadelphia’s secondary has been decimated by injury and has been forced to play young and unproven cornerbacks.
This has resulted in blown assignments and just poor coverage overall. Look for the Cowboys to try and exploit this weakness. This game is very important to both teams as each still has hopes o winning the NFC East title.
Sit: T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts
@ Houston Texans
I’m trying to keep both Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton out of my lineup if I can help it. Hilton is having another solid year, but he’ll have trouble hitting WR1 numbers this week. The Houston Texans defense has been playing at a very high level and will have home-field advantage.
Hilton isn’t a complete loss cause this week as he would still make sense as a possible FLEX play. Houston’s defense has allowed over 250 passing yards per game. They just aren’t surrendering a lot of touchdowns.
