QBBrandon Weeden

Brandon Weeden

189 pass yards, pass TD, INT, 13 rush yards

Assuming Weeden can dodge DeMarcus Ware, his next obstacle will be to throw against one of the league's best coverage units. Weeden will struggle Sunday, and being a rookie will have nothing to do with it.

RBTrent Richardson

Trent Richardson

92 rush yards, rush TD, 2 rec, 28 rec yards

With an extra week to rest his ribs, Richardson should be back to full health for this week's meeting in Big D. The Cowboys' defensive line is a little banged up and the Browns' best chance of winning will be to feed Richardson early and often.

RBMontario Hardesty

Montario Hardesty

8 rush yards

Hardesty has disappeared in the Browns' offense as Trent Richardson has shown he can handle the full workload. We'll be surprised if Hardesty carries the ball more than a few times against Dallas.

WRGreg Little

Greg Little

5 rec, 63 yards, rec TD

Little has finally looked the part of a No. 1 receiver in recent weeks, with 50-plus yards receiving in two of Cleveland's last three games. Little will again be the most targeted receiver this week, although Dallas' talented cornerbacks will make him earn his yards.

WRJosh Gordon

Josh Gordon

3 rec, 41 yards

Now that Mohamed Massaquoi is back in the lineup, Gordon's fantasy value is sure to take a hit. Gordon remains the better option of the two, but only because of his big-play potential.

WRMohamed Massaquoi

Mohamed Massaquoi

2 rec, 20 yards

Massaquoi will serve as Cleveland's No. 3 receiver until he fully recovers from a nagging hamstring injury. Considering the Browns' passing game has struggled lately, and considering the matchup, Massaquoi is not someone fantasy owners can consider yet.

TEBenjamin Watson

Benjamin Watson

2 rec, 28 yards

The Browns have three tight ends, but none of them are strong options. Watson is the veteran of the bunch and has been targeted more than Jordan Cameron or Alex Smith. He's still not worth much in fantasy, though.

KPhil Dawson

Phil Dawson

2 PATs, FG

It's been an up and down year for Cleveland's long-time kicker. In the Browns' last game, Dawson made five field goals; the game before that, he managed just one extra point. Against Dallas, expect very little.

DEFENSE

INT, Sack

Dallas has a small amount of momentum and will look to gain ground on the Giants in the NFC East. Cleveland will offer little resistance.

QBTony Romo

Tony Romo

293 pass yards, 2 pass TDs, INT, 24 rush yards

Romo has averaged 342.3 passing yards in three home games this season. That, coupled with the Browns' 22nd-ranked pass defense (which is allowing 247.8 yards per game), should help Romo keep his hot streak alive in Cowboys Stadium.

RBFelix Jones

Felix Jones

72 rush yards, rush TD, 2 rec, 20 rec yards

Even though DeMarco Murray is back on the practice field, the Cowboys' top back has yet to receive full clearance from the medical staff. Dallas can afford to keep him out one more week, especially after seeing Jones run with confidence against Philadelphia in Week 10.

WRDez Bryant

Dez Bryant

6 rec, 93 yards, rec TD

Joe Haden will try to slow Bryant down this week, but Haden won't be able to stop Bryant completely. Bryant hasn't made the splash his owners expected, but this will be a game where he comes close.

WRMiles Austin

Miles Austin

4 rec, 72 yards, rec TD

Austin had a disappointing performance in Week 10 but still caught a pass for 20 or more yards –- the fourth straight game in which he's recorded at least one long gainer.

WRKevin Ogletree

Kevin Ogletree

2 rec, 24 yards

Don't get sucked in by Ogletree. He's a gift once in a blue moon, and a curse on every other Sunday afternoon.

TEJason Witten

Jason Witten

6 rec, 69 yards

Since the start of October, Witten has not caught fewer than six passes in a game. Tony Romo and Witten rarely fail to connect when Dallas desperately needs to convert a first down.

KDan Bailey

Dan Bailey

3 PATs, FG

Life is picking up for Dallas -- and for Bailey, who has averaged 9.0 points over the last five weeks. This week, however, Bailey may be lining up for more extra points than field goals.

DEFENSE

INT, 3 Sacks

Last week, Dallas scored on defense and special teams. That's more than fantasy owners can ask for in a given week, but the Browns are generous enough to provide a turnover or two.
