Week 14: at Dallas Cowboys

All TE vs DAL

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Eagles have been up-and-down this season as a passing game, struggling with protection, turnovers, and offensive balance at various points. The addition of Golden Tate has been a shot in the arm, providing after-the-catch acumen. However, the team still lacks a downfield presence as Alshon Jeffery has devolved into an ancillary target in recent weeks and Tate and Zach Ertz are more short-to-intermediate threats. The Eagles are also in the bottom half of the league in passing plays of 20 yards and 40 yards or more on the season. Carson Wentz has been interception-prone in recent weeks, tossing six picks over the past five games after fumbling being his issues early in the season. The Cowboys pass defense is middle of the road in terms of sacks, but a top-10 unit in terms of fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks. Generating pressure has been a strength of the defense, specifically by Demarcus Lawrence, but finding a consistent second source of pressure is the quest for Dallas. Randy Gregory has three sacks over the past six games but has not won enough in the one-on-one matchups created by Demarcus Lawrence on the other side. Byron Jones has been a shutdown cornerback this season and Xavier Woods is one of the best safeties in coverage in the NFL. The way to beat this defense is against the secondary corners in Chidobe Awuzie and Anthony Brown which could setup well for Golden Tate this week, but other than that we all saw what this defense was able to do last week against the Saints in shutting down their passing attack.
