America’s team comes off an NFC East title but enters camp with a little uncertainty at the running back position. Ezekiel Elliot is holding out and that has some nervous about the Cowboys fortune this year. It shouldn’t. Running back is one of the more replaceable positions in today’s version of football, combine that with the Cowboy’s offensive line looking healthy and it’s not going to matter much who is running the ball. If Dak Prescott can build on a solid 2018 season, the Cowboys can make noise, again, at the top of the division. Based on their futures prices, however, the Cowboys are priced appropriately and there is no reason to grab any at this point.

Saquon Barkley is really, really good. He might be the best running back in the NFL going into his second year with his ability to break off an explosive run at any point and being one of the best receiving backs in the game. Unfortunately, that’s about the only thing to get excited about when talking about the Giants. They traded away their other explosive player on offense, Odell Beckham Jr., while keeping Eli Manning to run their offense. Manning could have some competition this season as they drafted Daniel Jones in the first round this year, but he wasn’t too impressive at Duke. Without good quarterback play, the Giants will rely heavily on Barkley’s ability, but he can only do so much. With that being said, the Giants do have value on their win total over. It’s not a very strong play considering the quarterback play is unknown but there is value.
Note – The Giants aren’t the worst team in the division (Redskins), but they’re priced as if they are. If you’re looking for a long shot in this division, the Giants are a much better bet than the Redskins.

The 2017 Super Bowl Champs had a disappointing 2018 but expect them to be one of the best teams in the NFL in 2019. The Eagles have one of the most talented rosters in the NFL, add in good quarterback play and you’re going to see good results. Despite being the best team in the division, there isn’t much “buzz” surrounding them (compared to the Cowboys). This team, if they stay healthy, should be contending for the NFC come playoff time. Unfortunately, the market has them priced appropriately as there are no opportunities to invest at current prices.

After Alex Smith’s gruesome leg injury last year, things started to look doom and gloom in Washington. With money tied up to Smith for the time being, it will be almost impossible to construct a competent roster going forward. Add in Trent Williams possibly holding out, your two biggest cap hits might not see the field in Week 1. This almost certainly leads to a disastrous season for Washington as the roster is lacking and there isn’t much incentive to win this season. The division price on them is very high so looking more towards under 6.5 wins would be the way to go.
