Witten active tonight; and more...

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.

Also, you heard it here first: Kevin Ogletree is poised for a breakout game tonight as Dallas' No. 3 receiver.  You can take it to the bank!  (Editor's note: Okay fine, I added this part on Friday morning...)

But let's not bury the lead here.  THE NFL IS BACK!  

It's time to play football!
