It's no secret that the Dallas Cowboys are banged up headed into Week 3's Monday night showdown against the Washington Redskins. Owners of Dallas' skill players in fantasy leagues must be feeling a bit skittish this week, but rest assured, SB Nation Dallas and numberFire's projections have you covered for start 'em, sit 'em advice.
As always, numberFire has projections set up each week. This week, numberFire does not like Tony Romo in fantasy whatsoever. Romo is ranked 27th among fantasy quarterbacks by numberFire this week, partially due to his injury, and partially due to Dallas' offense being shorthanded, as Miles Austin isn't going to be playing. Regardless of the rationale, numberFire only projects Romo to score 11.25 fantasy points -- behind the likes of Blaine Gabbert and Matt Cassel.
Felix Jones heads into this week as a solid RB 2, as numberFire rates him as the 20th best option at running back this week. Jones is projected to score an even 10 points against Washington this week.
At wide receiver, obviously, bench Miles Austin. Dez Bryant, on the other hand, should be started in all formats as numberFire projects Bryant to be the 17th best wide receiver this week. No other Dallas wide out is worth starting in Week 3.
Jason Witten, not surprisingly, is a top five tight end play this week, and is projected by numberFire as the No. 4 tight end this week behind Antonio Gates, Vernon Davis and Rob Gronkowski.
Dan Bailey is ranked as the No. 5 kicker this week as well, so if he's available in your league, he's certainly worth a start.
Dallas' defense, meanwhile, is projected to be the 18th best this week, and is certainly not worth starting -- or even owning at this point.
