Monday Night Football will see the 125th edition of Cowboys vs. Eagles, an NFC East rivalry which dates back to 1960. It will be the first time Jalen Hurts takes on Dak Prescott after the Cowboys quarterback missed both matchups last year. Hurts and Prescott are similar dual-threat quarterbacks who can beat you with their arm and their legs, and both will be highly coveted for Monday’s NFL DFS lineups. Which NFL DFS stacks and Cowboys vs. Eagles DFS picks should you make?
Both quarterbacks have young, talented receivers looking to make their marks in this rivalry, including CeeDee Lamb, DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins. Who could rise to the top of the NFL DFS player pool in an intense rivalry where the teams have split the last 40 matchups?

Top NFL DFS picks for Cowboys vs. Eagles
One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football is Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. The Cowboys aren’t playing conservatively in Prescott’s return from last year’s injury, as they are dropping him back early and often. After two weeks, Prescott led the NFL in pass completions and ranked sixth with 640 yards.
This high-volume passing attack for Dallas is simply a continuation of last season, when Prescott was on pace to shatter the mark for most passing yards. During his last six full games, he is averaging 388.3 yards per game with three times as many touchdowns (nine) as interceptions (three). Now, he’ll get a depleted Eagles defense that hasn’t had safety Rodney McLeod all season and just lost Pro Bowl defensive end Brandon Graham for the year. A shootout is expected on Monday Night Football, so you can see why McClure is all over Prescott.
Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes stacking Prescott with receiver Amari Cooper, who leads the NFL with 16 receptions to go along with 163 yards and two touchdowns. Cooper (ribs) was banged up in Week 2, but got in limited work last week and is expected to suit up in Week 3.
Cooper has torched the Eagles throughout his career, including going off for 121 yards in the teams’ last meeting in Week 16 of 2020. The best game of his seven-year career also came against Philly in 2018, when he posted 217 yards on 10 grabs and a career-high of three touchdowns. Over his last six full games playing with Prescott, Cooper has averaged 8.8 receptions for 94 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game.
