Breaking Football
Wash can't stop anyone through the air so Russ could go off in front of the nation.
Texans D is OK against the pass but he's at home and they're rolling so could be worth a shot.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Washington allows the sixth most fantasy points, Wilson should have QB1 upside coming off his bye week.
The Texans are 8th against fantasy quarterbacks and the Cowboys have transformed into a running team this year. Romo has QB2 value this week.

Wilson has thrown for 2 touchdowns in each game this season. Enjoying a Bye Week 4, he is now fully rested and ready to take aim at the Redskins. Will he continue with his touchdown streak? Probably not. I am a much bigger fan of Wilson for NFL purposes rather than fantasy. Look at the Seattle signal-caller to perform as a QB2 in deeper leagues this week.
As I had told you last week, Romo was ready for a breakout game against the Saints. He tossed 3 touchdowns and added 262 passing yards, his best performance by far for the season. But don't get too excited just yet. He has to go against the Texans in Week 5 which will be a much truer test if the Dallas quarterback is close to being back to his old-self or if Week 4 was more of a result of the right matchup.
