Fantasy Football Start 'Em, Sit 'Em: Redskins Vs. Cowboys

The Washington Redskins will take on the Dallas Cowboys today in a titanic battle between Rex Grossman and Jon Kitna. Excited yet? You should be, because you are in your fantasy football playoffs and you might need some of the players in this game to step up.  

Who should you be playing from this game. Our quick picks, below the jump.

Start 'Em

Ryan Torain: Torain had a huge performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week, and with Grossman starting for McNabb, you can be sure the Redskins will do everything they can to get Torain involved. Yes, even with Kyle Shanahan at the helm. Dallas is in the middle of the pack against the run, so don't expect a huge game, but Torain should give you solid production.

Felix Jones: By the same token, the Redskins are awful against the run. Jason Garrett has emphasized the running game more since he's taken over, and Jones has seen his production rise. He's a good play here.

Jason Witten: Witten has become the Cowboys' top receiving threat, and with Roy Williams inactive, you can expect even more balls to go his way.

Chris Cooley: After being upset about his role this week, you can be sure the Redskins will look to him early and often.

Sit 'Em

Rex Grossman: For obvious reasons.

Jon Kitna: The Redskins' defense is bad, but with Williams and Dez Bryant out, Kitna has very few options to go to. 

Anthony Armstrong: Armstrong had value because of Donovan McNabb's ability to throw the ball deep, but with him sidelined, the Redskins will surely cut back on their deep pass plays, limiting his value.

Toss Up

Miles Austin: The Cowboys' receiver should get plenty of looks, but the Redskins will be keying on him with no other weapons available, other than Jason Witten. 

Santana Moss: Moss has been very bad in recent weeks, but he has historically done well against the Cowboys, so you never know.
