The Sunday Night Football game this week is arguably the game of the week with the Dallas Cowboys (+3.5) heading to San Francisco taking on the 49ers. Shanahan & Co has established themselves as the elite of the NFC, but Dallas is looking to throw their name in the hat for 2023. Dak is 2-0 against the 49ers in his career, but worth mentioning those games were back in 2016 and 2017. I’m personally excited to see how Purdy looks against an elite level pass rush, it will be telling for how far this 49ers team can go this season.

Let’s look at the player props, and also check out our Dallas Cowboys vs San Francisco 49ers predictions.

Brock Purdy (SF) over 2.5 rushing attempts (-115)

Line available on DraftKings sportsbook at the time of publishing.

Purdy averages 2.61 rush attempts per game for his career and gets a Cowboys team that’s prime for taking off under duress. This line is right at his career average, which is a baseline for me, but what puts me over the edge is seeing how QB’s have fared against this Cowboys pass rush through 4 games. Quarterbacks vs Dallas have run for 13, 5, 6 and 3 attempts to start the season. This is a good spot for Shanahan to dial up 1 or 2 planned runs and I expect Purdy to take off under duress at least once. 1U

Tony Pollard (DAL) over 20.5 receiving yards (-114)

Line available on Fanduel sportsbook at the time of publishing.

The 49ers are allowing 33.5 receiving yards per game to opposing RB’s this season and their 6.25 receptions per game allowed is 4th worst in the league. Yes, it’s hard to find a weakness for the 49ers defense, but we did it! What makes it even better is that it helps one of the best receiving RB’s in the league. Pollard averages 7.86 yards per receptions for his career and has seen 3+ receptions in 3/4 games. 1U
