Alright DFS grinders we have part 2 of wildcard weekend showdown throwdown featuring Philly taking on Chicago. Who would have thought we have some deja vu. Carson Wentz goes down with an injury and Big Dick Nick comes in and saves the day leading the Eagles to another playoffs and let’s see if he can make some magic again.
Vegas Insight: 41.5 game total with Chicago a 6.5 point favorite
Weather: mid 40s sunny with 12 mph gust so a mild day not much impact
Remember guys if you take anything away from this article make sure to check out my MonkeyKnifeFight.online picks. We smashed yesterday and I’m looking to carry that momentum into tonight’s game.
Zach Ertz: He’s the only guy I really want from the Eagles passing game. Since Foles has taken over for the Eagles he hasn’t done too well but the Texans game is the one that stands out to me. 12/110/2 on 16 targets. He preformed well against the team that struggles the most vs TEs. I look at this because you can get much going on the outside aainst this top defense you really need to rely on the TE to get anything going.
Mitchell Trubisky: I don’t trust this man as a passer and he’s the most expensive player on the slate. I wouldn’t even think about playing him in the CPT spot too much salary wasted, but against one of the worst pass defenses in the league I have to believe Nagy will have something fun planned for this game.
Allen Robinson: You want to pair Mitch with Robinson. The Eagles have really struggled on the outside with all their injuries and we could see the Bears make a statement here. He’s expensive but you need to pair Mitch with some passes catchers if you want him to pay off his salary and in this amazing matchup he is perfect.
Bears D: Of course I have to include these guys. Hoe favorite in solder field where they were able to stop one of the most explosive offenses in the Rams late in the season. I expect the Bears D to control this game. Unless we see some Nick Foles magic or short fields off turnovers the Bears should be able to hold the Eagles to single digits.
Darren Spoles: We saw last game that Sproles was heavily involved in there game plan but when the Eagles can’t get much going in the passing game they’ll try to get Sproles in space on dump off passes to see what he can do. I could easily see 5+ catch upside for him.
Adam Shaheen: With Trey Burton out Shaheen should step into Burton’s role for a high snap count and for only $200 he’s an easy play today.

Well squad last night my “cash play” hit and my 18x play hit with my 14x prop being 14 passing yards from Dak from even more money. These props aren’t my favorite today but I think I can find some nice holes to exploit here.
Cash play: Rapidfire 1.8x 2/3: Mitch +26.5 passing yards over Foles, Ertz recieving yards -3.5 over Jeffery, Agholor +.5 receptions over Gabriel.
Over/Under 17x: Foles under 254.5, Mitch over 228.5, Ertz under 6.5 receptions, Howard over 67.5 yards, Jeffery under 58.5 yards
Let’s get that money!!!!!!!!!!!!!
