Fantasy Football Week 2: Tony Romo, Kevin Ogletree And More

Fantasy football owners had to have been pleased with the numbers Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys' offense put up in Week 1 against the New York Giants.

Dallas' skill players on offense figure to boast another week of nice numbers this week, as the Cowboys head to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. While Seattle is never an easy place to play, the Cowboys have had extra time to prepare for this game, since Dallas' season opener came last Wednesday.

As always, Tony Romo is a must-start against the Seahawks. There's not going to be a game where I recommend benching Romo, unless his entire offensive line is on injured reserve.

DeMarco Murray, likewise, is a must-start. There's no reason to consider benching him, and he's a borderline RB1, very good RB2 this week.

Similarly, Dez Bryant and Miles Austin are both must-starts if you own them as well. If you scooped up Kevin Ogletree, I'd consider using him in a flex position, or as a WR3. Since we live in the iTunes society where everybody expects instant gratification, some owners out there may expect Ogletree to replicate his Week 1 results. He could, but it's not likely. He's fine to start in a flex play, or as a WR3, but as anything more, you're rolling the dice.

Jason Witten is borderline. I wasn't huge on him for fantasy purposes coming into this season, and I'm especially not huge on him as he recovers from an internal injury. I'd start him if you don't have a better option, which you probably don't if he's on your team, but again, temper expectations a bit on him.

As for Dallas' defense, they're probably worth starting this week too. Russell Wilson does not impress me, and Seattle's wide receivers aren't anything to write home about. Yeah, it's a nice home field advantage for the Seahawks, but Rob Ryan should be able to confuse Wilson.
