No trap: NFL.com’s Marc Sessler believes the Dallas Cowboys could be facing a trap game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3, but their fantasy potential should remain sky-high. Quarterback Tony Romo is a player who should do extremely well after watching what Eli Manning was able to do to the Bucs’ secondary. The one main factor is that like Manning, Romo has two big and fast wideouts capable of creating separation and reaching for balls above smaller defenders. Unlike Manning, he also has a slot receiver who has been proven reliable in Kevin Ogletree. Start all your Cowboys this week with confidence.
Another one: It looks like Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings could miss Week 3 action as he continues to heal from a groin injury. Around The League editor Gregg Rosenthal reports coach Mike McCarthy stated the veteran isn’t “quite where we hoped he be by now,” and that he isn’t “too optimistic.” Fantasy owners should look elsewhere for help, as the Packers likely want Jennings around for the long haul and won’t risk worsening his injury. Randall Cobb and James Jones would be the probable candidates to fill in for Jennings should he miss time.
Back on track: NFL.com’s Albert Breer believes Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker will be a large part of the plan moving forward after his Week 2 performance, which displayed the fact that “when they absolutely had to have a play, they were going back to No. 83.” With Aaron Hernandez likely to miss a significant amount of time, Welker owners can breathe a sigh of release and start him as needed.
