Dallas comes into Chicago licking their wounds but still clinging to a thin lead over the Eagles due to the tiebreaker in the NFC East, with both at 6-6. Dallas will still need to go to Philadelphia to play one more time, so getting every win they can is important.
The Bears are also 6-6 but three games behind the Packers and two games behind the Vikings in their division. They will need to make a big move to get into the wildcard over the Vikings and the Rams. But there’s no doubt that both of these teams are still in the hunt this Thursday night.
The Bears have had a bit more luck through the air of late and the Cowboys have a Top-10 offense, so there is hope for some fantasy goodness. Dallas is favored by three points and the over/under is a low 43.
Matchups are crucial, but it helps to see what the analytics are saying about potential performances. Looking at ESPN fantasy projections, there are plenty of start/sit decisions to consider for both teams.
