Here are PFF staff best bets for the NFC East Monday-night clash between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants:

Ben Brown: Cowboys RB Tony Pollard u9.5 rushes (-115 BetMGM)

Expect to see Pollard's rush attempts drop from his 36.4% team share so far this season. His target share is the spot where he is severely out-pacing Ezekiel Elliott and that should be close to the expectation once again on Monday night. PFF Greenline shows greater than a 10% edge.

Judah Fortgang: Giants RB Saquon Barkley anytime TD (+105 DraftKings)

Barkley has seen 40% of the Giants' red-zone touches so far. Look for them to to continue leaning on him — especially in the red zone.

Tej Seth: Saquon Barkley o74.5 rush yards (-113 Barstool)

On early downs in neutral-game situations, the Giants entered Week 3 rushing the third-most-often in the NFL (59.1%). Against a Cowboys defense that has given up the fifth-most explosive runs dating back to 2021 and specializes in stopping the pass, Barkley should continue his success after entering the week trailing only Nick Chubb in Rushing Yards Over Expected.

Richard Janvrin: Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb anytime TD (+195 FanDuel)

Throwing 31 passes in Week 2, Cowboys QB Cooper Rush sought out WR CeeDee Lamb 10 times. This was easily the most targets of any Cowboys receiver, with Noah Brown next (5). Lamb clearly remains in the driver’s seat as the No. 1 option. This +195 line certainly correlates to faith in Rush, but our Player Props tool has Rush as a value to go over 1.5 passing touchdowns in this one.

PFF Greenline top play: Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott u1.5 receptions (+150 DraftKings)

Elliott has caught one pass in five consecutive games and six of his past seven dating back to last season. Although there are juiced 2.5 offerings, Greenline sees terrific value (game-high 22.4%) on Elliott to continue losing receptions to Pollard.
