Week 5: vs New England Patriots

All QB vs NE

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Brandon Weeden put in another journey-man like game against the Saints during Week Four (16/26 for 246 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown) - this looks like his typical sort of outing while subbing in for Tony Romo. Terrance Williams (10 targets for 3/49/1 receiving), Cole Beasley (six for 6/62/0) and Jason Witten (six for 4/57/0) are his main targets - Brice Butler, who pulled down a 67-yard bomb in the game, promptly pulled his hamstring and is out until after the bye (at the best) - Weeden has also lost pass-catching back Lance Dunbar after Dunbar blew out his ACL in last week's game. There is a limited number of weapons for Weeden entering Week Five. The New England pass D is ranked 18th in the NFL after three games played, averaging 251.7 net passing yards allowed per game, with six TDs given out vs. five interceptions (tied for sixth in the NFL) and 13 sacks (fifth in the league) generated to date. Blake Bortles managed 17/33 for 236 net yards passing at New England two weeks ago, with two TDs thrown vs. one interception and two sacks taken (for -6 yards). This looks like a neutral matchup for the home-team Cowboys.

Cowboys | Week 3 Inactives (Sun Sep 27, 11:55 AM) - The Dallas Cowboys have declared RB Christine Michael, WR Dez Bryant, TE Geoff Swaim, DL Jeremy Mincey, QB Matt Cassel, DE Randy Gregory, OG Ronald Leary inactive for Week 3.

Our View: Michael is still inactive and it might take an injury to get him in the lineup. He remains a stash in deep leagues, but in shallower bench league, he is droppable for a more compelling pickup until we hear about a change coming in Dallas.
