Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Stephen McGee: Fantasy Football X-Factor

With Jon Kitna likely out with a left oblique muscle injury, it appears that Stephen McGee from Texas A & M will start this final regular season weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles.  McGee did admirably against the Arizona Cardinals completing 64.7 percent of his passes, 111 yards passing, 1 touchdown and a 102.8 quarterback rating.  Stephen McGee’s pass to Miles Austin in the fourth quarter nearly got the Cowboys the win, but the Arizona Cardinals came back with Jay Feely‘s field goal to win the game.  The balanced offense goes a long way, and it will remain this case against the Philadelphia Eagles.  Three things will go in McGee’s favor: the shortened week of preparation for McGee for the Eagles defense, the Eagles defense have never dealt with McGee before this season and the success of Minnesota Vikings Joe Webb should encourage Stephen McGee some.  McGee could potentially transform into a high-end QB2/low-end QB1 against this 22nd-ranked passing defense.  Considering he did well against the 21st-ranked passing defense of the Cardinals, he should have few problems with the Eagles defense.  However, the Cowboys will need to establish a rushing offense to keep the Eagles honest.
