Don’t forget to set your line-ups today. The NFL regular season kicks off tonight in New Jersey with the Ca’boys facing off against the New York Football Giants!
I don’t particularly love any match-up this game offers. Last year I would’ve jumped all over to start Eli, Victor and Hakeem but Dallas has a revamped secondary featuring Brandon Carr and Morris Clairborne.
On the other side I don’t necessarily trust Michael Coe starting at corner for the Giants so I could see Dez Bryant or Miles Austin potentially having big nights. The Giants front is solid and I am scared for Tony Romo, Jason Pierre-Paul is a beast, plus Osi and Justin Tuck are fully healed from last years injury woes.
Be careful to check in with Jason Witten’s status, I haven’t heard definitively whether or not he is playing. If I had him on my team, I’d keep him on the bench if I have any other playable option at TE. For my under the radar pick I like Martellus Bennett having a big game for his first game in Big Blue. It’s a revenge game for Bennett who feels like he was toyed around with and mistreated by the Cowboys ever since being drafted by them four years ago. I can’t help but love possible revenge games/stories.*** (Although I do love Bennett’s potential for this year and especially this game I am unsure if I’ll be starting him on the two teams that I own him)***
Update: Jason Witten = Active (6:12 pm) If you don’t have a safer option, feel free to use him. In a perfect world though, you’d like to see him get through this one with no harm.
Just wanted to make sure you set your line-up tonight, make sure you play your must plays and look at the match-ups and set it before tonight. Set your line-up, enjoy the game, then come back Saturday for more last minute tips and treasures.
