Week 14: at New York Giants
All QB vs NYG
FBG says: Good matchup. The Cowboys offense got back on track last week with 38 points in a blowout of the Redskins on Thursday night. With an offensive line back to near full strength, most notable with Tyron Smith back in action, Dak Prescott had a solid running game behind him and great protection as he was sacked just one time. While Prescott passed for a season-low 102 yards, he found the end zone twice while accounting for zero turnovers. Prescott had multiple turnovers and zero touchdowns in each game since Ezekiel Elliott's suspension, so this performance was a big one for his confidence despite the low passing yards due to a run-heavy game script. Dez Bryant scored a touchdown for the first time since Week 7 as he continues to have a tough season compared to past standards. Jason Witten also scored a touchdown for the first time since Week 7, but he has been literally on and off this season with five games of one reception and less than 10 receiving yards.
The Giants secondary saw continued struggles against the Raiders last week, giving up nearly 300 yards through the air including a number of chunk plays downfield. The Giants have now allowed the third most passing yards per game (260) and are tied for the third most passing touchdowns (23) given up--good for the third most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. With Janoris Jenkins now placed on injured reserve, this secondary is particularly bad as he was their only shining star that could lock down at least one receiving option. Dez Bryant moves all over the field, but most of his time should be spent against Eli Apple, which is a favorable matchup. Rod Smith coming out of the backfield should also have a good matchup with the terrible Giants linebackers.
