Fantasy Forecast

Analyzing which Redskins you should play on your fantasy teams this weekend. Which Redskins are a smart play this weekend?

Clinton Portis: Nope. Even if he plays, he'll be limited.

Jason Campbell: In two starts vs. Dallas, Campbell has thrown for a combined 579 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. If the line blocks and the running game does anything, there's no reason to believe Campbell can't put up strong numbers again.

Chris Cooley: The myth is that Cooley always has good games vs. Dallas. He does not. In the first meeting, he had just four catches for 28 yards. Two years ago he had a combined four catches in the two games. Then again, last year he caught a combined 13 passes in the two games. And nobody has forgotten his three-TD effort. Point is it's hit or miss.

Santana Moss: Four 100-plus yard games vs. Dallas since joining the Redskins in 2005. A no-brainer.

Redskins defense: Washington's D matches up fairly well vs. Dallas, with physical corners and linebackers quick enough to scoot by the lumbering, overrated Dallas line. But you know the Cowboys will throw a lot and will at the least get yardage – Tony Romo threw for 300 yards in the first meeting, yet had a bad game. They also didn't sack Romo despite his 47 pass attempts. And the Cowboys have scored at least 24 points in every game Romo has played.

Shaun Suisham: He's a must every week because of how often the Redskins stall in t he red zone.

Ladell Betts: Worth a flyer if he's still available. He runs hard and can give Dallas fits. Clinton Portis is terrific, but the line can open holes for Betts. But he's a bit risky considering his inactivity from the knee sprain.
