Fantasy Football, Cardinals Vs. Cowboys: Keep An Eye On Larry Fitzgerald, DeMarco Murray

Quarterbacks around the league have really come to dislike this guy.

With only two weeks remaining before many fantasy leagues will begin their playoffs, people will be looking to scrap for any points they can get for their team. The Dallas Cowboys travel to Glendale, Arizona this weekend to take on the Arizona Cardinals. Let's take a look at some potential fantasy football starters for your team.

Larry Fitzgerald:

Fitzgerald is always a must start, no matter what team the Cardinals happen to be playing. He only had three catches for 55 yards last week, but that number looks to make an increase with the return of Kevin Kolb to starting QB. Dallas allows the 22nd most fantasy point to opposing wide receivers, so it isn't too terrible of a matchup.

Beanie Wells:

Dallas has one of the better run defenses in the NFL, allowing the 27th most points to opposing running backs this season, but it will be hard to sit Beanie Wells this week. He rushed for 228 yards (a franchise record) last week and will look to continue that dominance against the Cowboys this Sunday.

Patrick Peterson:

Peterson is also a must start for those of you in IDP leagues. He has become a threat to take a punt back for a touchdown at any given time against any opponent, already collecting four punt return TDs this season. He also has 47 tackles and two INTs on the season.

Dez Bryant:

Arizona has allowed the sixth most points to opposing receivers this weekend. Dez is always good for a big play at some point in the game, especially if the run game is in full effect. He is a consistent threat and against a questionable Cards secondary, he becomes a must start.

DeMarco Murray:

The Cardinals have the 20th ranked run defense in the NFL, so sitting Murray given the hot streak that he is on would be silly at this juncture. Since Murray became the primary running back for the Cowboys, Dallas has gone 5-1. It just goes to show how much of a weapon this guy has become for their offense.

DeMarcus Ware:

The pass rush will be in full effect and Ware will be the biggest obstacle the Cards will need to hurdle if they want to taste victory. Ware has become one of the most premiere pass rushers in the entire league and going up against two subpar tackles, it may be hard for Arizona to handle him. They have given up the fifth most fantasy points to opposing linebackers this season.
