Eagles' Carson Wentz feels he's processing things quicker ahead of Week 7 clash with the Cowboys
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz told Eagles' Color Commentator Mike Quick that "I feel like I'm just processing things a lot quicker and just being able to find completions when its there instead of always having to force the shot, and I just feel like I'm seeing things pretty clearly out there" when asked about his familiarity with the offense on Wednesday.
Wentz's 21.54 FanDuel points he scored in Week 6 were the most he's produced since a Week 1 meeting with the Washington Redskins. On Sunday night Wentz will face a Cowboys pass defense rated 30th overall by our power rankings in a crucial NFC East showdown. Our models project Wentz for 17.5 FanDuel points in Week 7 and he is the QB14 in our weekly rankings.
Wentz's Week 7 projection includes 254.4 yards, 1.74 touchdowns, and .72 interceptions. He is priced at $7,500 on the Sunday-Monday slate.
Giants' Daniel Jones focused on the team heading into Week 7 showdown with Kyler Murray and the Cardinals
Daniel Jones told reporters on Wednesday that "my focus is on trying to help the team win the game, I think that's the biggest part. It's about being prepared as a team, it's about making sure I'm doing my part in that preparation and I'm ready to play as well as I can" when asked about his mindset when facing Kyler Murray.
Jones reiterated that his focus was on the team and not on how he compares with Kyler Murray, the only quarterback taken above him in this year's NFL draft. Jones has cooled off after his hot start against the Buccaneers in Week 3, but he is set up for success this Sunday facing a Cardinals pass defense rated 28th overall by our power rankings. Our models project Jones for 19 FanDuel points against the Cardinals and he is the QB12 in our weekly rankings.
Jones' Week 7 projection includes 267 yards, 1.94 touchdowns, and 1.15 interceptions. He is priced at $7,200.
Philadelphia's DeSean Jackson (abdomen) will not play in Week 7's game against Dallas
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is ruled out for Sunday's night game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Jackson will miss his fifth straight game after suffering an abdomen injury in Week 2. Alshon Jeffery should play an important role against the Cowboys as Philly's lead receiver.
Our models project Jeffery to haul in 4.9 receptions for 59.8 yards on 8.6 targets.
Titans' Delanie Walker (ankle) questionable for Week 7's matchup against the Chargers
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker (ankle) did not practice on Friday.
Walker is questionable for Week 7's game against the Chargers after sitting out Friday's practice. Jonnu Smith would be next in line at tight end if Walker is inactive.
If Walker can play in Week 7, our models project the Tennessee tight end to haul in 3.5 receptions for 36.0 yards on 5.3 targets.
Jalen Ramsey (back) set to make his Rams debut in Week 7
Los Angeles Rams defensive back Jalen Ramsey was removed from the team's injury report on Friday.
Ramsey's back injury cleared up on the cross-country flight and he is officially set to make his first appearance as a Ram against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Ramsey will have to contend with a Falcons' pass offense rated 2nd overall by our power rankings.
Our models project the Los Angeles Rams D/ST for 26 points allowed, 2.4 sacks, .76 interceptions, and 6 FanDuel points in Week 7. They are priced at $4,300.
Rams' Todd Gurley removed from the injury report ahead of Week 7
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley was not on the team's injury report Friday.
Gurley is good to go for Week 7 following a one-game absence due to a quad injury. Gurley will return just in time for a prime matchup against an Atlanta Falcons defense rated 32nd overall by our power rankings. Malcolm Brown is doubtful for Sunday, leaving rookie Darrell Henderson to work alongside Gurley in the Rams' backfield against the Falcons.
Our models project Gurley for 71.9 rushing yards, .79 rushing touchdowns, 2.6 receptions, and 16.3 FanDuel points in Week 7. He is priced at $7,100.
