The Dallas Cowboys travel to face the Chicago Bears in Week 14 on Thursday Night Football and the Cowboys passing attack is about as healthy as one can expect it to be in December. Amari Cooper is dealing with a knee injury, but he was a full participant in practice all week. Michael Gallup is quietly chugging along as a capable complement to Cooper. The most notable injury report addition of the group this week was Randall Cobb.

Cobb came down with an illness that sidelined him on Monday, but he has worked his way back and was a full participant on Wednesday before being removed from the final injury report.

Fantasy football analysis: Cowboys WR Randall Cobb

The Bears defense will present a solid challenge for Dak Prescott and the Cowboys passing game. They rank eighth in pass defense efficiency and have given up the fifth fewest fantasy points to wide receivers.

It is worth noting the Bears will likely be without wide receiver Prince Amukamara due to a hamstring injury. He is listed as doubtful on the final injury report. A weaker Bears secondary is a boost for the entire Cowboys receiver corps. Cooper and Gallup are worth starting in most formats, while Cobb is a flex option at best in deeper leagues.

Start/Sit Recommendation

Cobb: Start in deeper leagues, sit in more traditional leagues
