Cowboys vs. Raiders: Fantasy Football Stars to Watch for
The Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders will meet in an exciting NFL preseason game on Monday night in which several fantasy football stars will be looking to impress those of us still deciding whom to draft in our leagues.
The preseason is a great opportunity to see which players are worthy of high draft picks in your fantasy league, as well as those guys who are struggling and not worth drafting at all.
Let's look at three players to keep an eye on in this matchup for fantasy football reasons.
DeMarco Murray, RB, Cowboys
Murray was one of the surprise stars of the 2011 fantasy football season, and owners are hoping he takes a step further this year.
Since Felix Jones is the only notable player under him on the depth chart, Murray should receive plenty of touches this season as the starting running back.
Murray was not good in the final four weeks of the season for the Cowboys and fantasy owners, but after developing nicely as an NFL RB in his first pro season, he will be a player to keep an eye on as your draft approaches.
Carson Palmer, QB, Raiders
Many fantasy leagues use two starting quarterbacks, so it's important to find two that start in the draft so you don't have to make a trade to acquire one.
Palmer didn't have a great season for the Raiders in 2011. He threw 13 touchdown passes but was also picked off 16 times. This game against the Cowboys, a team that has a good secondary, will be a great test for Palmer's accuracy.
If he looks good against Dallas tonight and makes some quality throws, Palmer might be worth a look in your league's draft.
