Travis Fulgham Week 8 Outlook - Cowboys at Eagles

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 29th 2020, 9:35am EDT

Since entering the starting lineup, Fulgham has totaled 34 targets in three games. That's elite volume that rivals the best in the game. He's done a lot with those targets, too, racking up 21 receptions for 300 yards and two touchdowns. Keep in mind that two of those games were against the Steelers and Ravens. Meanwhile, the Cowboys defense has been among the most generous in the NFL. The Cowboys' starting cornerback Daryl Worley had allowed 3.43 PPR points per target in his coverage, which is the second-most in the NFL. He's no longer on the team. The only player who's allowed more is his teammate Chidobe Awuzie (who's expected to return this week), so clearly, the Cowboys defensive scheme is not quite working. As a whole, the Cowboys have allowed 2.18 PPR points per target to receivers, which ranks third in the NFL. They have allowed 10 different receivers to pile up 14.5-plus PPR points, which is the mark it took to finish as a WR2 or better last year. Fulgham should be considered a low-end WR2 with upside for this week.
