Fantasy Island: Cowboys Predictions And Open Discussion

Injury recoveries and concerns abound when looking at the offensive skill position players that are involved in this game.

For the Cowboys, wide receivers Miles Austin and Dez Bryant are both expected to be at full strength for the first time since early in the Jets game Week One. In the absence of one or the other, TE Jason Witten has totaled 42 targets, 27 catches and a 13.6 reception average. One has to wonder how will having all three in the game together affect each's statlines? Also, Felix Jones said earlier in the week that his shoulder still isn't all the way right and he'll have to fight through the pain.

For the Patriots, their dual tight end threat returned last week as Aaron Hernandez came back a week earlier than expected from his knee injury. Running back BenJarvis Green-Ellis injured his toe earlier in the week, but made a quick recovery and participated in Friday's practice.
