Kevin Ogletree realed in eight receptions on eleven targets for 114 yards and two touchdowns to help the Dallas Cowboys get past the New York Giants in the Week 1 opener. Tony Romo overcame an early interception and shaky offensive line play to go 22/29 for 307 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Fantasy owners who value history should take note – back in 2009, while being flanked by Terrell Owens and Roy Williams, Miles Austin (4 targets, 4 catches, 73 yards, one touchdown), parlayed the WR3 role in the Cowboys offense into an 81 catch, 1,320 yards, 11 touchdown season on his way to finishing as the third ranked wide receiver in fantasy football. Last season, Laurent Robinson found himself in Ogletree’s current position (playing in the middle of the already mentioned Austin and current Cowboys glamour boy Dez Bryant) and finished the year with 54 catches for 858 yards and 11 touchdowns. The role of third wide receiver in the Cowboys offensive scheme has a history of producing viable fantasy options. If Ogletree is available in any of your league’s, he won’t be around much longer.
