The Washington Football Team will be facing a Cowboys offensive line Sunday that has been decimated by injuries. With Tyron Smith (neck) already out, Dallas announced Tuesday that left tackle Brandon Knight (knee) already underwent surgery for a significant injury that he sustained Monday, necessitating a need for another new LT. In addition, Zack Martin (concussion), a traditional anchor of the line, is questionable to suit up in his own right. After some disappointing fantasy performances, the Washington defense is in a prime spot to break out against Andy Dalton, who scuffled mightily in his first start of the season. They will be a risk in medium-sized or smaller season-long formats, but should have some DFS appeal, especially for those targeting the early-only slate.
The Washington Football Team defense had a quiet afternoon despite a good matchup with the Giants on Sunday. The Football Team only allowed 14 points, but didn't have a ton of big plays to rack up fantasy points. Washington's vaunted defensive line only sacked Daniel Jones once and recorded just on turnover on the day. If Washington couldn't produce against New York, fantasy managers will want to steer clear of the unit in Week 7 versus the Cowboys.
Washington Football Team tight end Logan Thomas had his best game of the 2020 season in Week 6 catching three passes for 42 yards and his first touchdown since Week 1. Thomas is a touchdown-or-bust option in fantasy as the Virginia Tech Hokie hasn't recorded more than 42 yards in a game this season. Thomas has four targets in three-straight weeks as his role in the passing game has decreased since he had a solid game in Week 1. Thomas will be a touchdown-dependent streamer with a good matchup with Dallas in Week 7.
Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson handled nine carries for 30 yards and added four catches for 25 yards in a loss to the Giants Sunday. The nine rush attempts ties his fewest in a game this season as Peyton Barber was inexplicably involved in the game plan again, taking four first half carries for six yards. The good news for fantasy managers is Gibson had five targets for the third-straight week as his role in the passing game continues to expand. The rookie from Memphis will be an attractive starting option in Week 7 versus a shakey Cowboys Defense playing on short rest.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic rushed for 41 yards on eight carries and caught all six of his targets for 43 yards. McKissic has worked his way to fantasy relevancy in PPR leagues as the veteran running back has at least six catches in three-straight games. McKissic won't unseat rookie Antonio Gibson for early-downs work, but he clearly has a role in the passing game and is a viable starter in PPR leagues next week versus a vulnerable Cowboys Defense.
