Am I over-thinking?
Could Dez Bryant be in for a letdown this week? They play on the road in Cincy vs. a Bengals secondary that is in the top 5 in fewest pass TDs allowed, in the top third of passing yards allowed, and top half of passing attempts against. Plus, the Bengals lead the league in sacks which I don't think will turn out well for the Dallas passing attack. Dez and Romo have been on a hot streak but all good things must come to an end... any thoughts on this?

    You're not over-thinking. Sit him if you've got another decent option. You play people based on match-ups, and, as you pointed out, this isn't a good one for him.

    Outside of Dez, my best WR option is James Jones. Outside of him, I got T.Y. Hilton (non-player return league) and Brandon Stokley. My opponent plays Romo and I'm kind of handcuffed into starting DeMarco this week as well.

    Yes, you're overthinking. The light in his dim skull seems to have turned on. If you have a better option at WR, maybe you sit him. But I overthought the process and sat Julio (at home when there was this home and away pattern) for Antonio Brown. Brown got one point and Julio got 16. I lost by 14 points. In the end, you play the talent regardless of matchup.

    I'm in a similar situation. Trying to decide between Garcon and Torrey as WR2 when I am wondering if I should be going with both and sitting Dez and his tough matchup. But, to me, bottom line is this: If I lose my playoff game because Bryant gets stuffed, at least I went down with my best. If I lost with Dez on my bench, that's something I'd regret for a long time.

    Start Dez. No brainer.
