It was great having football back last weekend! Drafts are over and the craziness that was week #1 is now in the books. Now comes the hard part. Deciding which of the several breakout stars of week 1 to grab or just leave alone. However, the pickups made before week 2 are usually the most important for grabbing potential studs. Study carefully and consider some of these choices we’ve made for you:
1. Alfred Morris-RB-Redskins- No surprise with this pickup as he made fantasy headlines with his breakout week 1 performance vs the Saints. He compiled 96 yards and 2 touchdowns, singling himself as the new starting back in Washington. With his 28 carries it is no secret that Morris will be the main go-to-back and, at worst, will end up at least as a RB2 with many of the goal line carries going his way. To say this is a Must Add would be an understatement! Just remember as long as Mike Shanahan is the coach there will be some mystery attached to any back on his team. Of course with the Rams on tap in week 2, Morris is an absolute start should you be lucky enough to get him.
2. Kevin Ogletree-WR-Cowboys- Over 180,000 owners snatched up the wideout within 24 hours of his season debut on Wednesday night vs the Giants. Over 2 million have grabbed the upstart WR in the 3 days that followed. If he’s still a part of your waiver wire, you can feel free to pick him up but temper your expectations as there are other weapons on the Cowboys (Miles Austin, Jason Witten) who, if they were playing at 100% last Wednesday and against a team with a viable healthy secondary, Ogletree doesn’t have the game of his life. If you have bench room, go ahead and get him. If not there are other WRs available with a bigger upside.
3. Randall Cobb-WR-Packers- Case in point. Cobb was targeted and ended up with the most receptions on the Pack at 9-and that’s with a healthy bunch of receivers such as Jordy Nelson, Jermichael, and veteran Greg Jennings on the field. What I like is the other bonus you get with Cobb and that’s his return capabilities as witnessed on Sunday when he ran...

The Cowboys intend to cash in on the attention generated when owner Jerry Jones was spotted having his glasses cleaned by his son-in-law by selling a unique product.
The Dallas Cowboys injuries list doesn't seem to be getting much shorter.
Of course, preliminary injury reports don't come out until Thursday, but this is the Dallas Cowboys. Every little tidbit of news is scrutinized so heavily, that we can pretty safely analyze the report even before it comes out. Also a big shout out of thanks to Jerry Jones, who seems to comment...
According to Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett indicated that he expects tight end Jason Witten to be himself this week after not being a factor at all during last week’s win over the Giants.
Garrett on Witten being better this week: we expect Witt to be Witt.

(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Sports Writer Ryan Cook was playing against the Dallas Cowboys in the preseason finale only a couple of weeks ago.

The Cowboys beat the Giants because Tony Romo had one of the best games of his career. However, they committed 13 penalties, which could have easily derailed them, but Tony Romo wouldn’t let it happen and kept coming up with big throw after big throw. They’ll be right in the NFC East mix, where all 4 teams are evenly matched, but they’ll have...

Tight end Colin Cochart was waived by the Cowboys. Cochart was claimed on waivers from the Bengals on Sept. 1 and kept on the 53-man roster in case tight end Jason Witten couldn't play in the opener at New York. Cochart wasn't needed because Witten played, and he didn't travel with the team to New Jersey. The Cowboys did not make a corresponding move to fill the...
