Dallas defense is terrible
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
This matchup was cake in 2013, and I don't see anything better about Dallas on paper. Run Frank, Run.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
I think Gore is going to have a monster game against what may be the worst defense in NFL history.
The Texans were just 19th against running backs, but they tried to upgrade this defense to stop the run better. It is going to be a tough matchup for Morris, especially if RGIII continues to struggle.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Dallas D is a dumpster fire so it's hard not to love Gore in week 1.
Morris is a masher and Texans are shaky against run but he lacks explosiveness and versatility. Needs a TD to return value.

The Cowboys D is bad. Frank Gore is fresh to start the season, so don't be afraid to fire up the RB you got a bargain on after the 5th round.
