by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

If you need to pick up and play a DST unit in Week 8, Jamey Eisenberg identifies three worth snagging in his waiver-wire column: the Colts (59 percent owned) in Pittsburgh, the Cowboys (43 percent) against Washington, and the Dolphins (36 percent) in Jacksonville.

Tony Romo re-entering must-start territory
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Early in the season, Tony Romo looked like he might be destined for a game manager role with the Cowboys' rededication to the running game, but he and running back DeMarco Murray have managed to share the spotlight in recent weeks.

Romo's three-touchdown effort Week 7 against the Giants gave him five straight games with multiple touchdown passes. Murray's production, as you probably know, hasn't let up during that stretch. He became the first running back in NFL history to begin a season with seven straight 100-yard games.

Romo's resurgence may have been inevitable considering the weapons he has on offense. Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Jason Witten you already know about, but he may have added another in rookie tight end Gavin Escobar, who caught two touchdown passes in Week 7.

Though the 300-yard games may not be as regular for Romo this season, the touchdowns are reason enough to stick with him in Fantasy. You have to like his chances of delivering another strong performance Week 8 against Washington.

Cowboys LB Bruce Carter expects to practice this week
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter has missed the last three games due to a thigh injury, but said he expects to practice this week. Carter did some running prior to Sunday's game against the Giants, per ESPN.

"For the most part, I'm able to do everything I need to do," Carter said. "I got a couple of extra days to get ready, given we have a Monday night game."

Gavin Escobar a threat to Jason Witten?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cowboys rookie tight end Gavin Escobar, who entered the day with just four catches all season, wasn't highly targeted Week 7 against the Giants, but he made the three targets he did get count, scoring two touchdowns, including one on an impressive 26-yard grab between two defenders in the third quarter.

In all, he had three catches for 65 yards -- numbers that would be easier to overlook if not for the two touchdowns and the fact that fellow tight end Jason Witten, to this point a mainstay in Fantasy, had only two catches for 27 yards. And it's not like he and quarterback Tony Romo were just failing to connect. Witten was targeted only twice the whole game.

Witten's production hasn't been up to his usual standards this season -- in seven games, he's averaging 3.3 catches for 38.0 yards -- but just based on their history together, you figured Romo would have a need for him sooner or later. Now with the emergence of Escobar, it's no longer so clear.

Escobar himself isn't worth adding except in deep leagues of 16 teams or more that don't have enough tight ends to go around. In those formats, he's the new Timothy Wright. But in leagues of 12 teams or fewer, Witten may be on the outs. He deserves a couple more weeks given his history, but keep an eye out for the next big thing at the position.
