Ranks reax: Cowboys' O will bounce back

Fantasy owners should never carry a grudge with certain players based on one really bad game. The Dallas Cowboys are indeed coming off an ugly blowout loss to a division opponent Sunday night, but check out the next five opponents: the Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins and Arizona Cardinals. Wow, that's very favorable. I don't see any defensive juggernauts there, which is why there's no better time to trade for Cowboys wide receivers Dez Bryant and Miles Austin.

I ranked Tony Romo's top receiving options 10th and 11th for this week's home game against a Seahawks secondary that hardly inspires fear to anyone except Seahawks fans. Yes, for some reason Romo didn't target his top guys much against the Philadelphia Eagles -- each of them had to settle for three receptions -- but I'd hardly call this the team's plan moving forward. Plus, when cameras picked up Bryant and Austin complaining to others on the sideline late in the game, it was a sure harbinger to me that better things are to come.
