St Louis has done a fairly good job against Wilson. In 6 career games, he has averaged only 212.2 passing yards per game and has just 6 touchdown passes and 4 interceptions. He has had some success as a runner with 38 rushes for 200 yards and 2 touchdowns. He's a low upside QB1 this week.

Romo usually plays a very good game against the Giants in 19 career games he has 38 touchdown passes against the G Men. He should be an excellent fantasy option against a Giants D that allowed the 4th most points to fantasy quarterbacks last year and could be without DE JPP.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Rams on the road is no easy task, but Wilson has Graham and his legs. The potential for a defensive battle is scary but I still like Russ inside the top-10.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Cowboys should continue to try to run but Romo will be needed and he routinely demolishes the G-Men. Plus, he's at home.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

As long as Wilson continues to run the ball he'll be a top choice every week. St. Louis beat the Seahawks at home last year, but Wilson threw for 2 touchdowns and 300+ yards, while running for over 100 yards and a another touchdown. The game script won't be the same, but we know what he can do against this Rams defense.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

In two games last season Romo put up 35/49, 71.4%, 554 yds, 7 TDs, 1INT against the Giants even though the Cowboys were in run mode all year. This year without DeMarco Murray we should see plenty of passing from Romo and this game has the second highest over/under on the slate with the Cowboys projected score the highest. I don't think they get those points through Joseph Randle.
