Another week is wrapping up in Diamond Dynasty. It was a relatively calm week, and included a weekend with a free pack of cards going to every single user. The Baseball Is Better pack and Break The Scoreboard packs were released (everybody got one Baseball Is Better pack delivered to them for free). With that in mind, it's time to look ahead once again and try to predict who might be getting a ratings boost on Monday morning.

I'll be breaking the predictions into tiers based on my own confidence level.

Ratings Boost Probability: High


-Mike Fiers - Of course I'm leading off with the guy who threw a no hitter one week after Iwakuma. He's having a good month overall, striking out just under one batter an inning and allowing less than a baserunner an inning.

-Hisashi Iwakuma - Of course, I have to include Iwakuma again as he did not get a no-no bump last week. He's having a better month overall than Fiers.

-A.J. Pollock - Pollock is just a beast, especially for fantasy purposes. The average is over .320, he's stealing every base he can, and he just can't be stopped from getting on base.

-Miguel Sano - Sano is going to strike out a ton (and has), but the power is so legit (eight home runs the last month), and he's getting on base enough to make everything work. He's also just 22.

4th Quarter Highlights

The Eagles finally start to run a more Chip Kelly-style offense in the fourth quarter, and it pays off with a touchdown as Murray gets a second TD against his former team. Romo drives the Cowboys down the field on a long drive before he does that thing he sometimes does.

:26 -- Get a look at a pump fake swing pass to Murray before going to Celek on the screen, and then the Eagles will go into the hurry up for really the first time today.

1:04 -- Bradford misses Murray on an easy pass.

1:35 -- The next play the swing pass to Murray works out, 61-yard pass from Bradford to Murray (17-7)

4:48 -- Williams gets loose on a slant, picks up 18 yards.

5:16 -- Barwin lines up offsides, Dallas gets a free play

6:00 -- Beasley dives and tries to make a play on a drag route, another two-man interaction on the incompletion

6:30 -- Kendricks has been all over the field this game, here he flies by three blockers to blow up the screen pass to Randle

7:10 -- Dez gets free underneath on the slant and picks up 18 yards.

7:36 -- Beasley goes deep on the corner route, Maxwell punches the ball loose to force the incompletion as Thurmond tries to dive in and pick the pass off.

8:09 -- Beasley is open underneath on the curl route, picks up 10 yards.

8:24 -- Romo looks right at Kiko Alonso and throws a pick to him over the middle.

2:30 -- Bradford is sacked again

3:05 -- Dallas sends the corner, Bradford goes up top but overthrows Huff

5:17 -- Romo hits Witten on a PA in route for 20 yards.

6:28 -- Romo tries to go to the screen, itís covered so he takes a sack.

7:02 -- Eagles send three on third and long, Free gets beat around the edge and nobody else is there to help him out so Romo gets sacked again.

2nd Quarter Highlights

Both teams strike for touchdowns this quarter. The Eagles start to get the running game going a bit, while the Cowboys are more effective through the air. There is also a turnover early in the quarter.

:26 -- Romo throws a pick to Maxwell sitting back in zone. Maxwell with a long return setting up the Eagles inside the 20.

1:10 -- Bradford gives it to Murray on Read Option. Murray picks up 13, Bradford is injured behind the play.

4:32 -- Kendricks drops a potential pick while sitting in a zone over the middle.

5:10 -- Corner route from Romo to Street goes for a 33-yard TD. I went for the pick rather than trying to knock the pass away and it cost me. (10-7)

6:40 -- Hardy sacks Bradford on first down.

7:20 -- Screen pass to Celek. I make the wrong read and cost myself a bigger gain.

16:04 -- McClain doesnít bite on Celekís move, nearly ducks under the route to pick off the pass.

16:42 -- Bradford scrambles on third down and picks up first.

17:13 -- Bradford is sacked (Agholor is open on the play but Bradford canít step up to get the throw off).
