Romo has missed the last three games with a broken pinkie and the Cowboys have gone 1-2, falling apart completely on offense. He returns this week with his pinkie completely healed and should bring new life to this offense. In the Week 4 26-24 loss to the Redskins at home, Romo completed 28-of-47 passes for 300 yards, three TDs and one INT. He will need an even better performance this week to win on the road.
The Redskins held Barber to just 26 yards rushing on eight carries in the Week 4 win at Dallas, his worst game of this season. Barber has been held in check without a passing threat over the last two weeks, averaging just 2.8 yards per carry in the last two games on 44 carries. Look for Barber to get back on track with Romo back in the lineup as he returns to star status again.
Nobody is happier to see Tony Romo back at QB than Owens, who was nullified by the lack of a deep passing threat. He did score a TD at New York in Week 9 -- his sixth TD catch of the season -- and he did have seven catches for 71 yards and a TD in the Week 4 matchup against Washington. Look for a big game from T.O. as he's ready to bust out with Romo back at the helm.
Crayton had one of his best games this season against Washington in Week 4, catching seven passes for 87 yards. But he's also missed Romo as he hasn't caught a TD pass since Week 6. Look for his fantasy value to rise slightly with the return of Romo to the starting lineup.
Witten has a broken rib but will start and play with a flak jacket. He didn't catch a pass in Week 9 at New York, but he practiced on Monday and said he felt much better. In the Week 4 matchup against Washington, Witten caught seven passes for 90 yards and a TD. Expect similar numbers this week as the Cowboys desperately need a win on the road.
After not throwing an interception through the first eight games, Campbell threw two INTs in the loss to Washington in Week 9. In the Week 4 win at Dallas, Campbell was solid, completing 20-of-31 passes for 231 yards and two TDs. He will need a similar performance this week to lead the Redskins to another win over the Cowboys.
Portis is just 50-50 to play this week according to head coach Jim Zorn because of a sprained MCL, but it would be tough to see Portis sit this important game out. In the Week 4 win at Dallas, Portis ran for 121 yards on 21 carries and he already has seven rushing TDs and five 100-yard rushing games. Watch his progress this week and start him if he's good to go.
Alexander will start in the backfield if Portis can't go, with Rock Cartwright also filling in and Ladell Betts available at less than 100 percent. None of these guys are worthy pickups unless Portis is inactive on game day, but combined they may top Portis' totals.
Moss' hamstring is still "tentative" but he is expected to start this week against Dallas. Moss was limited in the Week 9 game against Pittsburgh as he caught only two passes for 14 yards. In the Week 4 win at Dallas, Moss caught 8 passes for 145 yards. He will need to have a big game for the Redskins to win this week.
Randle El has at least three catches in all nine games this year, but he still has just one TD reception. That lone TD came in Week 4 at Dallas as he finished with four catches for 36 yards and a score. Expect similar results without the score this week.
Cooley has just one TD reception this year, but he's been a dominant force in PPR leagues with 48 catches for 529 yards. He was limited to just four catches for 28 yards in the Week 4 win at Dallas, but his last game against Pittsburgh (8 catches, 78 yards) is more indicative of what Cooley has been producing each week. Look for better numbers in this rematch with Dallas.
The Redskins rank sixth against the run and eighth against the pass, but have been sub-par for fantasy owners with just six interceptions and 15 sacks. They will struggle again to convert turnovers this week against Dallas.
