The Kansas City Chiefs host the Dallas Cowboys in a Week 2 matchup that has the potential to be high scoring, something to which fans of the Chiefs are not usually accustomed. To help you get your fantasy team ready, we've got all the projections courtesy of numberFire.
Quarterback Tony Romo (ribs) and wide receiver Dez Bryant (foot) have had to deal with their share of injuries over the years. Luckily for fantasy owners, both are expected to suit up and start going into Arrowhead Stadium to face the Chiefs.
Although Romo didn't exactly light it up in Week 1, he did enough to get the Cowboys the win, completing 36 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns along with one interception. Bryant, on the other hand, caught just four passes for 22 yards in that same game. Both Bryant and Romo figure to be in for a tough Week 2 as the Chiefs' pass defense gave up the fewest points to receivers in Week 1. In light of that, fantasy owners shouldn't be surprised if DeMarco Murray sees a ton of action on the ground.

Alex Smith has never been a big time fantasy football player, and he stayed true to form against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, throwing for just 175 yards to go with two touchdowns in a 28-2 victory. Morris Claiborne and Orlando Scandrick are widely regarded as two tough cornerbacks, so Smith's owners may be wise to start someone else at quarterback.
That means Jamaal Charles figures to be heavily involved in the game if the Chiefs want to take their record to 2-0. Charles (quad) had 77 yards and a touchdown on the ground to go with three receptions and says he's ready to play in Week 2.
