Week 3: at Dallas Cowboys

All TE vs DAL

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. This game has become a battle of backups - Chicago's starter Jay Cutler (sprained thumb on his throwing hand) and Tony Romo (back injury) are sidelined as of Week Three, which means that Chicago will have Brian Hoyer under center until further notice. Realize that Hoyer has extensive experience in starting stints at Cleveland and Houston (44 games appeared in, with 590/1012 for 7,250 yards passing, 38 TDs and 26 interceptions thrown, and 71/112/1 rushing), and that Hoyer did get Houston to the playoffs last year - but then melted down in spectacular fashion during the Wild Card round. He is a bona-fide NFL starter, but he is not among the elite tier of quarterbacks currently playing in the NFL - his best finish among fantasy quarterbacks so far during his career was 25th in the league as the starter in Cleveland during 2014, before the Johnny Manziel debacle - but there are worse fates than starting Hoyer (just ask the Browns, currently prepping rookie Cody Kessler). We'll see which receivers he has good chemistry with - Hoyer completed nine of 12 passes for 78 yards in relief of Cutler last week, finding starters Kevin White, Alshon Jeffery and Zach Miller for two receptions each during his string of nine straight completions. He also attempted a deep pass to Jeffery and two deep throws to White. The Cowboys' pass defense has been up and down so far this year - in the season opener Eli Manning threw 19/28 for 203 net yards passing, three TDs and one interception at Dallas, while last week Kurt Cousins slung 28/46 for 350 net yards, one TD and one interception with two sacks taken for -14 yards vs. Dallas. To date, the team is 18th in the NFL averaging 276.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with four passing scores given up vs. two interceptions and four sacks generated. Over the first two weeks of the season, Dallas has averaged 22.3 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (12th-most in the NFL); and 24.8 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (13th-most); with 11.4 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (sixth-most). Not too good, folks. This is a neutral matchup between teams struggling with personnel issues.
