On the offensive side for New York, fantasy owners will be hard pressed to trust any skilled position players outside of WR Darius Slayton in their starting lineups. Slayton, in his second season out of Auburn, has emerged as the best playmaker in a Giants offense devoid of stars due to injuries to RB Saquon Barkley and WR Sterling Shepard. Expect the Giants to try and get Daniel Jones going after a disappointing first six games of 2020. The young signal caller has endured tremendous regression in his sophomore season with just one touchdown pass in his last five games under center, while failing to top 190 passing yards in three of six games. 

The possibility of better production could present itself on Thursday night against an Eagles defense that has surrendered 11 passing touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks. However, the troubles he has displayed so far make it difficult to trust players such as TE Evan Engram; who has 35 or less receiving yards in 5 of 6 games this season. Keep an eye on Shepard (toe), as he is shaping up as a true game-time decision.

On the Philadelphia side, fantasy owners will want to get QB Carson Wentz, RB Boston Scott and WR Travis Fulgham into their starting lineups. Wentz has thrown eight touchdowns and supplied surprising rushing production with four rushing scores in six games. He faces a New York defense allowing 25.3 points per game leads to a high ceiling for Wentz in Week 7. 

Due to the injuries to starting RB Miles Sanders (knee) and TE Zach Ertz (foot) who will both miss the game, both Scott and Fulgham have been thrown into the fantasy spotlight. Fulgham has emerged as the team’s leading wideout having found the endzone in three consecutive games, posting double digit PPR fantasy points in each contest.

Nearly 71 percent of all wagers to come in on the Thursday night contest have come in support of Philadelphia. The line opened at 6-points in favor of the home Eagles last week in Vegas. Afterwards, it dropped down to -3.5, and has since gone back to the Giants catching 4.5-points as road underdogs. The total opened in Vegas at 45, and has seen consistent action on both sides not moving off the opening number.

This game will feature a battle of one win teams, however they are both still alive in a bad NFC East division. The Giants are still searching for a true identity on the offensive side of the ball after losing arguably their best overall player in Barkley. The Eagles will also be dealing with several injuries missing Ertz, Sanders and Dallas Goedert, but they will be welcoming back veteran WR DeSean Jackson who has shined throughout his career against the Giants.

Philadelphia has owned New York of late winning seven in a row straight-up, nine of the last 10 overall dating back to 2015 and 20 of the last 24. Despite winning straight-up, the boys from Broad Street have burned their backers only going just 3-4 ATS during the seven-game winning streak. 

The Vegas Whispers SHARP PLAY for Thursday Night is on PHILADELPHIA -4.5, as the sharps are finding more trust with Wentz as opposed to the struggling Jones. Bettors can still find this line currently offered at DraftKings Sportsbook.

The Play: PHILADELPHIA -4.5 (-110)

***PLAYER PROP WAGERS***

PHI RB Corey Clement OVER 7.5 Receiving Yards

PHI WR Greg Ward OVER 3.5 Receptions

PHI WR Travis Fulgham OVER 58.5 Receiving Yards

Good Luck!!!
