Welcome to the NFC East, where just about anything can happen! After beating the Philadelphia Eagles 37-17 last week, the Dallas Cowboys will take on the New York Giants for a shot at the division title. Can Andy Dalton lead the Cowboys back to the playoffs and provide some fantasy value in Week 17?
Fantasy Football analysis: Cowboys QB Andy Dalton
Since returning from his injury and regaining his starting spot, Andy Dalton has led the Cowboys to four wins over a six-game span. During that time frame, Dalton has averaged 19.2 DKFP, though that’s primarily due to last week’s 30.58 performance (fourth-best among all QBs). This week, he’ll face off against a tougher defense in the New York Giants. The G-Men have allowed the seventh-fewest DKFP per game to opposing quarterbacks. Part one of this divisional matchup saw Dak Prescott end his season with a gruesome injury, yet the Cowboys still snuck out a win that week. Part two has a lot at stake, though it may be lacking in fantasy goodness.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Sit Andy Dalton.
