The Philadelphia Eagles’ acquisition of AJ Brown was hailed by most as a move that would help put the offense on top. After five games, it’s hard to argue with that expectation, as the Eagles are 5-0 heading into Week 6 and Brown has been a top-15 receiver in Fantasy. Should Eagles receivers like Brown or DeVonta Smith be slotted into your NFL DFS lineups on Sunday Night Football, or should you look elsewhere for value?
Noah Brown has been one of the Cowboys’ best wide receivers since Cooper Rush took over for injured QB Dak Prescott, logging more than 50 receiving yards in four of his last five games. However, Brown only recorded one catch for five yards in last week’s win over the Rams, making it one of the toughest decisions for your NFL DFS rosters. Before you make your NFL DFS picks for Cowboys vs. Eagles, be sure to check out the NFL DFS tips, strategy and player projections from SportsLine Fantasy Daily Expert Mike McClure.

Top NFL DFS picks for Eagles vs. Cowboys
One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Sunday Night Football is Eagles QB Jalen Hurts. Hurts finished with just 239 passing yards and zero touchdowns last week in a win over Arizona, but completed 72.2 percent of his passes. While Hurts is averaging just 3.91 yards per rush this season, he still has 266 rushing yards with six touchdowns.
Opposing quarterbacks have run the ball just 16 times against the Cowboys this season, but Dallas has given up the seventh-most rushing yards at the position (109). Historically, Hurts hasn’t had much success against the Cowboys, but he also didn’t have AJ Brown on his team until this season. Hurts was a much more effective rusher against Dallas and had 18 carries for 104 yards in the previous three games. Lock him in your NFL DFS rosters and look for a big comeback against the Cowboys.
Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes lining up Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb. Lamb finished with five receptions on eight targets for 53 yards last week, but overall he had an extraordinary three-week run. In those games, he had 19 catches for 237 yards and two touchdowns.
Philadelphia only allowed opposing wide receivers to walk away with 724 yards and five touchdowns, but one of their games came at home in the pouring rain against Jacksonville. Otherwise, the Eagles saw 116 targets go to receivers, which is tied with Atlanta for third in the NFL. Lamb has easily been the most targeted player in Dallas’ offense, even with the stepping up of Noah Brown and the return of Michael Gallup, and he is expected to step in once again in a game of tight division.
