Week 15: at Dallas Cowboys

All QB vs DAL

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Los Angeles Rams, fresh off of back-to-back impressive performances against NFC West competition, bring their high-volume passing attack into Dallas to face off with the Cowboys' struggling defense. Both of Jared Goff's last two games rank in his five most efficient passing days of the 2019 season, according to net yards per attempt, and in a high-volume passing attack like the Rams', Goff's efficiency can put their offense over the top, as a whole. In recent weeks, the Rams have utilized two-wide-receiver sets more than ever under Sean McVay. This change in tendency has led to decreased playing time and utilization for Cooper Kupp recently, with six or fewer targets in four out of his last five games. Robert Woods and Tyler Higbee have emerged as Goff's top-two targets in recent weeks. Woods has posted at least 9 targets and 95 receiving yards in 4 straight, while Higbee has registered back-to-back 7-catch, 100-yard games. On the whole, the Rams' passing attack has posted impressive totals, but the team's struggling offensive line does not make it easy on Jared Goff, whose numbers have rebounded in recent weeks after a significant midseason slump. The Dallas Cowboys' pass defense opened the season very strong, but a handful of poor recent performances have left many skeptical that this team has effectively quit on head coach Jason Garrett. Overall, the Cowboys have faced medial volume on the ground, allowing impressive yardage and touchdown totals, but their inability to force turnovers (only five interceptions this season) is worrying. While their season-long numbers are impressive, allowing the 13th fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, recently, they have drifted off, allowing the 8th most to opposing quarterbacks over the last month. They have not faced particularly stiff opposition in recent weeks, losing to Mitchell Trubisky and Josh Allen in disappointing fashion, and they may be in trouble once again this weekend against the Rams' high-volume passing attack. Along the defensive line, Demarcus Lawrence and Robert Quinn have been extremely impressive this season, disrupting the pocket, and their performance this weekend will be critical to the team's pass-defending efforts. In the secondary, cornerback Byron Jones and the team's number-one safety Xavier Woods have been vital to limiting big plays through the air. On the season, the Cowboys have allowed only 3 100-yard receivers, and they will need a strong bounceback performance this weekend to keep the Rams from shredding them for a third straight week.
