The Dallas Cowboys floundered in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks leaving many fantasy owners disgruntled and even a bit confused. Dez Bryant and Jason Witten had shaky hands, the ground game was ineffective and Tony Romo wasn’t in sync all night long.

Don’t worry, fantasy owners should expect a huge turnaround in Week 3 when Dallas takes on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The first two weeks of any fantasy football season is always a roller coaster ride. Players are hot one minute then cold the next, training camp standouts fall into regression, teams lose games they’re “supposed to” win and injuries come out of nowhere.

Sound familiar?

Well the only real counter to the aforementioned is to stick to your guns and take advantage of the proper matchups like the Dallas Cowboys versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Dez Bryant in particular should finally provide fantasy owners with much more than he has thus far, as he faces a Buccaneers secondary that surrendered 500+ yards to the New York Giants, but don’t forget about Miles Austin either.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers rank number one in fantasy points allowed by receivers, so it doesn’t get much better than that.

RB DeMarco Murray will face a Tampa team that ranks dead last against the run making him a tasty start as well.

On the Tampa side of the ball, I believe RB Doug Martin and WR Mike Williams will be risky plays this week while Vince Jackson is sure to have another nice day—just don’t expect him to do what he did to the injury depleted Giants secondary in Week 2.
