Make sure you're following me on Twitter (@ladd_biro) for all the late-breaking news prior to game time. As always, I'll be tweeting game-day inactives, as well as any other news you need to set the best possible lineup.
Tonight, in a fairly significant surprise, the Cowboys have announced that Jason Witten will be active for the opener. He's a big risk, because you know the Gmen will be aiming for his gut; but if he's your far-and-away best TE, he's probably worth the gamble in your starting lineup.
As for the rest of the Cowboys/Giants, start 'em if you got 'em. The Giants' secondary is banged up badly, especially at corner; so Romo's prospects are high. The Cowboys never stop Eli and his WRs, even when they're not 100%. Both Miles and Dez are ready to roll, and I like DeMarco Murray's chances of getting off to a nice start tonight. Bradshaw, too.
Of course, not all of the above will come up big. But all are clearly starter-worthy tonight.
But let's not bury the lead here. THE NFL IS BACK!
It's time to play football!
