The Shanahanigans in Washington continued last week with the benching and subsequent demotion to third string of Donovan McNabb. As the new starter, Rex Grossman emerged against the Cowboys to pass for an amazing 322 yards and 4 TD’s. We like Grossman’s chances to put up another gem against the suspect Jacksonville pass defense.  It could be a risky play to start Sexy Rexy in the Superbowl; however I like him more than Matt Cassel and Jay Cutler this week.
 
 
Andre Caldwell, WR Cincinnati

Terrell Owens will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing knee surgery for a torn meniscus on Monday, opening the door for Andre Caldwell and Jordan Shipley to get more looks for the Bengals.  Caldwell has a history with Carson Palmer and could be a nice #3WR in deeper leagues.
 
 
Anthony Armstrong, WR Washington

Armstrong has been able to put together a few decent performances over the past few weeks, and he appears to have a nice rapport with Rex Grossman. For those managers dealing with late season WR woes, Armstrong could be a nice injury replacement this week against the Jags.
 
 
Lance Ball, RB Denver

The fragile Knowshon Moreno appears to be injured yet again, opening the door for Ball to possibly get carries this week against the Houston Texans.  This is a long shot of a pick and it is not clear if Moreno will play, however if Moreno is ruled out Ball could be a decent flex play in deeper leagues.
 
 
Dallas Cowboys Defense

The Arizona Cardinals appear to be content with playing terrible football in hope of getting a top pick in next year’s draft, making any defense that plays against them a nice fantasy play.  That honor is bestowed on the Dallas Cowboys this week as they face off against the Cardinals on Christmas night.  If you  are looking for a sleeper defense this week, the Cowboys appear to be the top choice.
