NFL DFS Projections Week 9 - Which QB will beat their projections: Dak or Hurts?

Dak Prescott and Jalen Hurts have the same exact passing yard projection in Sunday’s divisional matchup in Philadelphia. It opened at 253.5 and has shifted down to 250.5 as of Thursday night.

Hurts has surpassed his passing yards projection SEVEN games in a row, averaging 243.9 passing yards per game. While Dak Prescott averages the league’s 2nd highest completion percentage at 71%.

Quite the jump from last season where Dak led the NFL in interceptions…. 

On the flip side, Jalen Hurts has actually been picked off at a higher rate this season throwing MORE than his projection in 5 of 8 games whereas Dak has had LESS in 4 of 7 games. The two teams are also on opposite ends when it comes to turnovers. 

Cowboys have 9 picks through 7 games this season (tied for 3rd) while the Eagles have just 4 through 8 games (tied 2nd to last). 

Both defenses will play a crucial role when assessing each QB’s production. The Cowboys average just 178.6 passing yards allowed per game while the Eagles surrender 247.5. The two teams are also on opposite ends when it comes to turnovers. 

Which QB square has the edge in this matchup?
