FedEx Field | Sunday, September 12 | 8:20 p.m. EST (NBC)
Pick: Cowboys 24, Redskins 20
255 pass yards, 1 pass TDRomo should like what he sees, going up against a weak Redskins secondary. Expect a nice start to the season for fantasy owners.
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 40 rush yardsFelix Jones will get more carries in this timeshare, but Barber should see more short-yardage touches. Either way, neither back fills fantasy owners with much confidence on gameday.
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 100 rush yardsJones will get most of the carries, and he'll have a few breakout performances due to his explosiveness. He's also a big injury risk in a timeshare.et the majority
6 rec, 125 yards, 1 TDAustin has a tasty first matchup against a poor Redskins pass defense. He was marvelous over the second half of last season, and is still the top target within a high-powered offense.
2 rec, 30 yardsWilliams has a delicate hold on the No. 2 spot on the depth chart with Dez Bryant still getting healthy. He matches up well against the Redskins, however, especially in the red zone.
2 rec, 35 yardsThe highly-touted rookie returned to practice from an ankle sprain just last week. He'll push Roy Williams to become the team's No. 2 wideout, but not in Week 1.
4 rec, 45 yardsWitten's 94 receptions last season was second among tight ends. He has to pick up his paltry touchdown numbers, however.
1 PAT, 2 FGsBuehler is unproven as a second-year NFL kicker, but the Cowboys offense will provide plenty of field goal opportunities.
4 sacks, 2 INT, 2 FumblesCould have a tough time against a revamped Redskins' offense, especially in the secondary.
240 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 5 rush yards, 2 INTYou have heard the questions before, about his age and his ability to learn a new system. No one yet knows for sure. What's certain is that he has weapons and will have plenty of opportunity to use them within Mike Shanahan's offense.
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 25 rush yardsThe Redskins brought in Larry Johnson and Willie Parker in to challenge Portis for a starting spot. Both veterans failed to impress, however, and the Redskins are again left relying on the talented, but extremely injury-prone tailback.
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 1 rec TD, 70 rush yards, 1 rush TDJohnson won the highly publicized battle for the backup RB spot almost by default, with neither he nor Willie Parker doing much to impress in training camp. Clinton Portis is such an injury risk that Johnson will have to get a few carries, however.
5 rec, 60 yardsMoss is the only sure thing among the Redskins' fluid rotation of receivers. He isn't as explosive as he once was, but he's more than serviceable and should be the No. 1 target in Washington.
4 rec, 55 yardsHis training camp was unimpressive, and depending on where you look Thomas may be listed anywhere from the second to fourth on the depth chart. His talent is undeniable, but he has a lot catching up to do.
4 rec, 40 yards, 1 TDHe'll be a favorite target of Donovan McNabb's inside the red zone, and Mike Shanahan loves to utilize tight ends. He'll be splitting targets with Fred Davis.
4 rec, 40 yardsMcNabb likes throwing to tight ends, but Davis is strictly bye week material at this point.
2 PATs, 1 FGGano will try to reboot his career with Redskins, though the offense may not be prolific enough to warrant fantasy consideration over other kickers.
3 sacks, 0 INTThe Redskins stymied the Cowboys in two games last season, allowing a total of 24 points to Tony Romo and Co. But expect a more potent Dallas attack this time around.
