Mr. Romo, meet Trent Cole. He'll be your chaperone for the evening. Romo had his third excellent game in a row against the Seabags, going 21-for-36 for 256 yards, 3 TD and 0 INT. He has 8 TDs and 0 INT in his last three games. After a subpar couple of weeks, Romo is back to being a no-doubt-about-it No. 1 fantasy QB, but watch out for the tough Birds' D who dominated him the last time he came to Philly in a 44-6 rout.
Barber hasn't been great all year, playing banged up and only going over 100 yards once. He had 53 yards on 14 carries with a TD against Seattle. Still, he's a tough runner and a No. 2 fantasy option against the Birds' 12th-ranked run D.
Jones had 8 carries for 39 yards against Seattle and caught 1 pass for 30 yards. He's got No. 1 RB talent but is pinned behind Barber here. His best utility is as a handcuff to Barber, especially as Barber is so often banged up, but isn't worthy of a start against the Eagles unless you start 3 RBs or have a catastrophic bye-week situation.
Austin had 5 catches for 61 yards and a TD against Seattle. The week before, he had 6 catches for 171 yards against the Falcons, one game after catching 10 balls for a jaw-dropping 250 yards at Kansas City. He has 5 TDs in his last three games and has blossomed into a true No. 1 fantasy WR.
Though fourth in the league among TEs with 37 catches, Witten has only 1 TD and has been disappointing thus far this year. His 4 catches for 36 yards against the Seahawks weren't great, and certainly owners expect better. He's still a safe top 10 TE and is a good start against the Eagles who have experienced difficulty stopping TEs this year.
Dallas' defense had 3 fumble recoveries, 3 sacks and a Patrick Crayton punt return TD against the Seahawks. They're not a recommended start against an Eagles' offense that scores the third-most points in the league.
No. 5 completed 17-of-23 passes with 3 TDs and 0 INTs, including a 54-yard TD strike to DeSean Jackson. In his five games this year, Don's thrown 9 TDs and only 1 INT. He's a good option against the Cowboys 22nd-ranked pass D. He's still a No. 1 fantasy quarterback -- perhaps a little lower on the list than he's been over the years, as he's yet to surpass 300 yards in '09.
Westie missed the Giants game after an errant London Fletcher knee to the head concussed him in the first quarter of the Redskins' game. Monitor his status heading to game time, but Andy Reid says he expects him to play. Either he or LeSean McCoy would be a decent No. 2 fantasy RB against a Cowpokes' D that is 13th against the run.
Jackson had another strong week, this time against the Giants with yet another very long TD: a 54-yard reception. He now has 6 TDs on the year -- all for over 50 yards -- and is a threat to take it all the way every single time he touches the ball. He's bloomed into a No. 1 fantasy WR.
Maclin has settled into a nice groove after his Week 5 breakout game (6 catches, 142 yards, 2 TD against the Bucs). The first-round pick caught 4 balls for 47 yards and a TD -- his third in his last four games -- against the Giants. He warrants a roster spot and could be useful as a No. 3 fantasy WR.
Targeted a team high 6 times, Celek had 4 catches for 61 yards and a TD against Big Blue. He's established himself as one of the top TEs in the league and is still fourth in the league among TEs in catches (with 37) and in yards. He should be started every week.
Akers was 2-for-2 against the Giants last week. He was 2-for-2 the week before (both 40-plus yards) against the ‘Skins on MNF, one week after hitting field goals of 43, 45 and 45 yards in Week 6 at Oakland. He's 13-for-16 on the season and is always a good option on a high-scoring team.
Third in INTs, second in sacks, fifth in defensive touchdowns, eighth in PPG and 10th in YPG, the Eagles' D has had the pleasure on feasting on some of the worst offenses in the NFL. The Cowboys are not that. They are second in the league in YPG as a unit. Still, the Eagles are a lower-tier No. 1 defense here.
