MNF Quick Thoughts- Week 3

What to look for in tonights game.

Let’s break down each teams key players and get some sleepers out there.

Was on the money last MNF calling Hixon a sleeper and he made a spectacular TD catch. Also called the Giants win and Eli stepping his game up.

Even gave you this nugget ” Mike Sims Walker is enough of a primadonna that he will bring his A game for a national tv audience” Sure enough MSW delivered which made me look REAL GOOD!

On to tonights game:

Dallas Cowboys:

Romo – will play and play fine , he showed last week that he has a high pain tolerance and he will need it as rib injuries are VERY painful – 275 yards 2 tds

Dez – Expected to play a monumental role on the Dallas passing game regardless of the injury. Was very aggressive about his treatment this week as he no doubt realizes on  a national stage with Austin out he could grab some league wide headlines with a great performance.

FEARLESS FORECAST: 7 112 1td 

Witten – Looks great so far and Romo obviously has great chemistry , with Felix playing but being nicked up , Witten will be the safety valve he always has been. Not much in the passing game right now so something like  6 for 75 1 td  is where I see his stat line ending up.

Felix – I would avoid him , I have discussed a few times how I do NOT think he is a top end fantasy player and he proved that to me last week. He scored a td week 1 but that will be the abberration NOT the rule.

SLEEPER:

Ogletree – Everyone is all over this guy Holley. Why? Because he caught a long bomb in OT to help beat the niners? REALLY? That one catch is the reason Holley became a potential matchup play? NOT A CHANCE!Ogletree is actually a pretty good WR , and with Austin out , he is my pick to surprise this week as Romo and him have created some decent chemistry.

REDSKINS:

Rex – Love the matchup , he is stupid enough to honestly believe he is a better QB then Romo and maybe tonight he will perform that way. I think they need 300 and 3 tds from him in order to win this game , 250 and 2 more like it , but the upside and potential is there for a very nice game , start him confidently , he will score.

Hightower – Nice back so far , I think his value will decrease as the season goes along , Helu will start to vulture touches but is a good enough runner in this system that he will be worth a start each week regardless of matchup. The cowboys have been GREAT against the run in the first two weeks and will give Timmy some trouble , but he should produce low end rb2 numbers.

Helu – 15 touches a week seems probable , needs to be owned by EVERYONE that owns Hightower , if one back was going to burn the boys tonight it would be him. I love adding youth to my fantasy teams.

Moss – Burns the cowboys , should have a great game on a big stage , long underrated , but always producing.

Fred Davis -I have loved this guy FOREVER! Been pimping him in my rankings as a sleeper and someone to own well BEFORE he broke out in week 1. My readers know this. I will say Cooley is NOT fully done yet and will get healthier soon , but Davis is the TE to own there. 5 for 60 is where I see his stat line ending.

SLEEPER

Gaffney – Another underrated guy , his problem is the fact he has no substantial upside. But he is consistent enough and the Dallas secondary is bad enough that starting him is a safe bet for 4-6 catches and some low end flex points.

Everyone is picking the skins to win, I think Dallas wins this game:

Dallas 27  Skins 21
