Jenkins is the Cowboys best corner, especially in man-to-man coverage; His growth as a very good NFL corner has been evident throughout the season
Cowboys always want Ware on the open side of the offensive formation
Giants clearly tried to establish a physical presence running the ball with Jacobs; Jacobs at this point only gets what’s blocked, nothing more

  • Week 7 story lines October 17, 2014
    Here are all the story lines I’m following for fantasy in Week Seven.  N.Y. Jets (1-5) at New England (4-2)  Who will carry the load at RB for the Patriots?
