Fantasy Football Preview: Dallas Cowboys @ Carolina Panthers

The Dallas Cowboys have something to build upon with the game they should have won last week against the Baltimore Ravens. Even though the Cowboys will not have their top running back DeMarco Murray this week with any injured foot, they should be able to leave Carolina with an easy win on Sunday. Carolina ranks almost last with fantasy points scored by opposing running backs. That should mean a good game can be expected from running backs Felix Jones and even Phillip Tanner. Here are my projections:

Dallas

Tont Romo: I think the Cowboys will lean on the run game this week.  264 yards passing, 2TDs, 1INT

DeMarco Murray : OUT

Felix Jones: He must have heard my calls for dropping him on rosters last week, because he looked quick for the first time this year. He should have another strong game.  90 yards rushing, 33 yards receiving, 1TD

Phillip Tanner: Jones probably will not be on the team after this year. So this week’s situation gives the Cowboys a good excuse to see what Tanner can do in the future. Let’s not forget that Jones gets injured easily as well. Tanner will get his share of touches.  39 yards rushing, 14 yards receiving, 1TD

Miles Austin: 5 receptions, 68 yards receiving, 1TD

Dez Bryant: 4 receptions, 51 yards receiving

Jason Witten: 8 receptions, 61 yards receiving, 1TD

Defense: 20 PA, 2 sacks, 2 INTs

Dan Bailey: 2/2 FGs, 4/4 XPM

Carolina:

Cam Newton: 233 yards passing, 1 TD, 2 INTs, 45 yards rushing

DeAngelo Williams: 37 yards rushing, 35 yards receiving

Jonathan Stewart: 31 yards rushing, 16 yards receiving, 1TD

Steve Smith: 4 receptions, 66 yards, 1TD

Brandon LaFell: 3 receptions, 47 yards receiving

Greg Olsen: 5 receptions: 54 yards

Defense: 34PA, 1 sack, 1INT

Justin Medlock: 2/2 FG, 2 XPM
