The Dallas Cowboys face a huge divisional matchup this weekend when they host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football. Dallas appears to have some good news (for them) on the injury front. All of their injured players, except for cornerback Anthony Brown, are expected to play in Week 7, according to team reporter Clarence Hill. That means wide receivers Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb, and offensive tackles La’el Collins and Tyron Smith should be active if this report is accurate.

Fantasy football analysis, Cowboys WRs Amari Cooper, Randall Cobb

This would be a huge boost across the board for fantasy owners. If you own Dak Prescott, his value grows considerably with Cooper in the lineup. If you own Cooper, he’s a great start against a shaky Eagles pass defense. If both starting offensive tackles are in the game, that opens the door for critical pass protection.

Cooper is a must start, while Cobb is a PPR value start. Dak is someone to start in all leagues. Dak has emerged as a strong start against bad teams, and a decent but somewhat shaky start against quality defenses. The Eagles are not part of the latter group.
