Which franchise is more disappointing right now? Both sit at 3-5, both loaded with talent on both sides of the ball. Fortunately for fantasy owners the win/loss record doesn't matter to any of the fantasy studs between these two rosters. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup this week, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.
Tony Romo hasn't thrown for more than one touchdown in a game since Week 6. He's put up solid yardage in recent weeks, but the scoring isn't quite what you'd like it to be. The Eagles rank in the middle of the road in passing yards and fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks, so this is a decent matchup. Miles Austin and Jason Witten are still consistent scorers, especially in PPR leagues. Dez Bryant is the interesting case here, not just because of his off-field antics. He caught just one pass against Atlanta. His injured hip likely held him back, but even when healthy he's only found the end zone in one game this year. Tread with caution. Felix Jones also has a great opportunity to score major points against a defense that somehow managed to let the Saints take over on the ground. Given Jones' injury issues, though, we'll understand if you're expectations are extremely tempered.
LeSean McCoy appears to be the only must-start in this group. The Eagles can't block for Michael Vick, and this week won't make their recent struggles disappear. Dallas hasn't allowed a passing touchdown in two weeks. The Cowboys broke Matt Ryan's 22-game scoring streak in Week 9, so can you really feel good about Vick's chances? His owners have to be considering another option. Jeremy Maclin isn't coming up with big numbers. DeSean Jackson is the receiver you want to start right now. Until Philly's offense starts clicking again, fantasy owners are faced with difficult times ahead.
