The New Orleans Saints will host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Both teams rank in the top seven in points per game and in the top 10 for passing yards. Shockingly, the Saints are actually fifth in scoring defense while the Cowboys come in ranked 15th. Chances are both defenses could be in for a long night.
In a dome and in a likely high-scoring game, there is just too much to like here. Dez Bryant is a little banged up and his aggressive style has been a bit of a double-edged sword. Still, he's healthy and should be in all lineups. Tony Romo going up against Rob Ryan's defense could be trouble since Ryan knows Romo well. Although, it works both ways since the Cowboys probably have a good idea of how Ryan will attack them. Terrance Williams is on hot and Jason Witten should get double-digit targets.
Deep Start: Cole Beasley
With Miles Austin out, Beasley has been a nice secondary option in the slot with Witten covered. If you're in dire straits for a a PPR option.
Sit: Miles Austin
He is shut down and is not worth owning in almost any league.
There is no way any of these guys can be benched, especially Sproles in a PPR. The Saints are the healthiest they been on offense in a while and they're outstanding at home.
The Saints not losing Darren Sproles really puts a dent in the value of Thomas and Moore. Sproles is a wheel-route virtuoso, and the Saints will use him a lot to keep DeMarcus Ware at bay. Marques Colston hasn't been the same all season and is banged up with a knee injury, so he's no longer the WR1/2 that fantasy owners thought they were getting.
Remember when Ingram won the Heisman? Yeah, we don't either. He lost all of his momentum last week against the Jets with a golden opportunity.
