Fantasy Forecast: Dallas Cowboys vs. New England Patriots

By Greg Bailey

This game will feature 2 QBs who weren’t even considered to be NFL starters when they joined the NFL. Brady has won numerous Championships (drafted in 6th rd) and Romo (undrafted) is still looking for his 1st, but both are considered top level QBs. Neither team is running back concentrated, but the points will certainly be there. Remember Air McNair (RIP, shouldn’t have been screwing around), it will be Air Tom and Tony.

Will the Cowboys turn this 2-2 into a winning season or start following the Eagles path to the bottom of the division? Will the Patriots quest to climb back in to first be the next step for Mel Gibson’s The Patriots? Hopefully there won’t be any voicemails with death threats or verbal abuse on Jerry’s phone come Sunday morning.

Here is my Fantasy Forecast:

Quarterbacks:

DAL: T. Romo – 310 yds, 3 TDs, 1 Int

NE: T. Brady – 340 yds, 3 TDs, 1 Fumble (Ware him out!!!)

Running Backs:

DAL: F. Jones – 50 rush 0 Tds, 4 / 55 Rec yds, 0 TD

DAL: D. Murray / Choice – 25 yds total 0 TDs

NE: B. Green-Ellis – 40 rush, 0 TDs, 2 / 20 receiving yds 0 TDs

NE: S. Ridley – 40 Total yards, 0 TDs

Wide Receivers:

Dal: M. Austin – 9 / 130 yds, 1 TD

Dal: D. Bryant – 7 / 90 yds, 1 TD

Dal: J. Witten – 8 / 70 yds, 1 TD

NE: W. Welker – 9 / 120 yds 1 TD

NE: D. Branch – 5 / 60 yds 0 TD

NE: C. OchoCinco – 3 / 30, 0 TD

NE: R. Gronkowski – 3 / 40, 1 TD

NE: A. Hernandez – 6 / 75, 1 TD

Kickers:

Dal: D. Bailey – 2 FG / 3 XPs

Det: J. Hanson – 3 FG / 3 XPs

It will be extremely hard for Dallas to roll into New England and come away with a victory. The Patriots have won 19 consecutive games at home and can tie the Packers for 20. New England has won 22 of the past 23 games vs. NFC. OUCH!!!

NE 30 – DAL 27

The Passing game favors NE, but barely. Will Brady stand long enough to make my predictions come true? Romo has weapons if he can make good decisions.– Advantage TIE

The running attack will be a Cowboy victory. However, they won’t put up great enough numbers to merit a start from any of the Running Backs (unless in a PPR league) . - Advantage Dallas

Right now the receiving core for Dallas is banged up. The Patriots have TEs (no gutter comments) – Advantage Patriots

Kickers – Once again, who cares, but this will be the difference in the game. – Advantage NE

Who will be the fantasy stud this week?
