3 Notable Fantasy Stars from Cowboys vs. Redskins
Now that Thanksgiving Day football is done and over with, MFST will take a look at 3 fantasy stars from the Thursday’s mid-game matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins.
Ezekiel Elliot, Dallas Cowboys
Week 12 Stats: 20 carries, 97 yards, 2 Touchdowns; 2 Receptions, 23 yards
On Thanksgiving Day, Ezekiel Elliot came out hungry and ready to eat as he was handed off the ball 20 times, rushing for 97 yards on the ground for the consecutive week. Elliot also enjoyed his fourth multi-score game with two touchdowns, while also adding 23 yards through the air on 2 catches. Elliot continues to strive for the Cowboys offense and is big part in why they came out on top 31-26 over the Redskins, and why they’re 10-1 atop of their division.
Jordan Reed, Washington Redskins
Week 12 Stats: 10 Receptions, 95 yards, 2 Touchdowns
Although Jordan Reed suffered a Grade 3 shoulder separation, and is questionable for week 13’s matchup, he enjoyed his best game of the season in their 31-26 loss to the Cowboys. Reed hauled in a season-high 10 passes on 12 targets, for 95 yards along with two touchdowns. The game marks as Reed’s second multi-score game of the season, the last of which coming in week 4 against the Browns.
Kirk Cousins, Washington Redskins
Week 12 Stats: 41-of-53, 449 yards, 3 Touchdowns
Cousins had another great performance, where he threw 449 yards and three touchdowns in a losing effort. Cousins struggled in the first half, as the offense was only able to muster 6 points. But Cousins and co. were able to find their groove, after receiving very little from the run game as Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson combined for only 54 yards on 18 carries. Cousins had success driving down the field relying heavily on the pass game, as he connected with three different receivers with 80+ yards (D. Jackson- 118 yards, J. Reed- 95 yards, J. Crowder- 88 yards).
