Week 7 Stock vs. Stat: Wells Fargo vs. Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders
Jim Cramer is a die-hard, life-long Philadelphia Eagles fan. He bleeds green. Has season tickets. Cried when they won the Super Bowl. So when it comes to talking about any Eagles player, Jim always has a lot of passion.
With such a big match-up in the NFC East on Sunday Night Football between the Eagles and heated rivals Dallas Cowboys, we couldn't help but spend a few minutes chatting about the Philly playmakers.
Jim is concerned about DeSean Jackson's health and wonders if he'll see the field the rest of the season. Jackson hasn't played since the 1st Quarter of Week 1 where he injured his abdominal but some believe he has a sports hernia. With Jackson sidelined, Jim points out rookie running back Miles Sanders is being utilized as the team's deep threat. Sanders caught three passes for an eye-popping 86 yards and a touchdown in Week 6. The former Penn State rusher is averaging 10.1 fantasy points per week.
Meanwhile, Sanders' teammate, Jordan Howard, is averaging 11.7 fantasy points per week. The Cowboys defense has played well against the run, allowing just 78.2 rushing yards per game which is the eighth least in the league according to our partners at FantasySP.
We did both take the over on Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders' combined fantasy points instead of Wells Fargo which is trading at $49.97. With the game's Over/Under set 49 points according to various Las Vegas sports-books, we know there's going to be a lot of points on the board. In fact, Vegas projects the Eagles and Cowboys to be the third highest scoring game of the week.
