Harris was top five in the NFL in yards per kick and punt return both. He can give Dallas an edge in the special teams game that only a few other teams can match.

Week 3: at St. Louis Rams

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Tony Romo watched DeMarco Murray rack up 29/167/1 rushing last week, and with 43/220/1 rushing as a team (and 41:11 time of possession by the Cowboys), Romo only needed to throw the football 29 times (19/29 for 176 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown, with four sacks taken for -28 yards). Dez Bryant was his main target last week, with 14 for 10/103/1 receiving flowing that way - Jason Witten was second on the team in receiving with seven targets for 4/32/0 receiving to his credit. After two games, Romo has compiled 42/66 for 457 yards passing, two TDs and three interceptions thrown to land at 28th among all fantasy quarterbacks through two games played. The Rams held Josh McCown to 16/21 for 175 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception in this phase of the game last week (though he did have 2/6/2 rushing). Matt Cassel threw 17/25 for 160 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions while being sacked once for -10 yards two weeks ago. St. Louis ranks fifth in the NFL averaging 172.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with one interception and one sack to balance the two TDs given up so far. The bottom line here is that teams are gashing the St. Louis for an average of 171 rushing yards per game, so they don't need to pass much vs. the Rams. Romo had a quiet game while DeMarco Murray piled up the fantasy points last week - against the Rams' suspect defensive front, there is no reason to expect Romo to have to throw the ball much again this week. On balance, this looks like a neutral matchup for Romo.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs SF (2 / 1 / 56 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)

Harris, in addition to his regular return duties, had the highlight offensive play for the Cowboys in the blowout against the 49ers. On a hail mary-like third down heave from Tony Romo, Harris came down with the long gain, moving Dallas into the red zone, and giving the team a short-lived spark. Harris saw more playing time than expected with Dez Bryant in and out of the lineup in the second half, plus Dallas was in pure catch-up mode for most of the game. Harris also was motioned into the backfield for a toss play early in the game a la Percy Harvin or Cordarrelle Patterson.
