Rank Among Leaders
|Tony Romo still less than automatic |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(10/1/14) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo finally performed up to his past standards Week 4 against New Orleans, firing three touchdown passes in a game where many assumed he'd have to throw just to keep pace with the competition.
Turns out the Cowboys were the ones that jumped out to an early lead, putting the Saints in catchup mode, but regardless, against Drew Brees and company, the game plan was likely a little different than against the 49ers, Titans and Rams.
The Texans, who will visit Dallas in Week 5, have more in common with the Cowboys' first three opponents. They don't have the Saints' explosive offense, so this game doesn't have the look of a shootout.
Does that mean the Cowboys go back to their approach from the first three weeks, when their offense relied mostly on running back DeMarco Murray? Well, the Texans rank 26th against the run this season compared to 19th against the pass.
Which doesn't mean Romo is going to stink -- he still has great weapons and a track record of success -- but I'd bet against him throwing another three touchdown passes this week, making him a fringy start in standard 12-team leagues.
|Cowboys resting QB Tony Romo on Wednesday |

(10/1/14) Cowboys sizzling quarterback Tony Romo, who has been dealing with a back issue, is not practicing Wednesday. He has earned a day off.
Romo doesn't seem to need the work, at least based on his performance in Week 4. He buried the Saints with three touchdown passes and a quarterback rating of 137.4. He has completed 40 of 52 passes in the last two games combined.
|Tony Romo's real tests coming in next two weeks |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/29/14) Fantasy owners finally got the performance they have been waiting for from Tony Romo in Week 4, as he tossed a trio of touchdown passes to down the Saints Sunday night.
Romo, who had four touchdowns to four interceptions entering the game, was nearly flawless in a stunning win over the Saints. He completed 75.9 percent of his passes for 262 yards and three touchdowns, without an interception. Racked up a season-high 30 Fantasy points, good for sixth among quarterbacks for the week. The question is, can we expect this to keep up moving forward?
The Saints were expected to be improved on the defensive side of the ball this season, but have been exposed through the first quarter of the season. New Orleans has yet to intercept a pass, while allowing the third-most passing yards in the league. Given those numbers, it is hardly a surprise Romo found success.
The Cowboys' schedule gets a bit tougher moving forward, with the Texans and Seahawks on the way in Weeks 5 and 6. The Texans rank fifth in the league in Fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks, and though the Seahawks' rank far worse, they have also faced arguably the three best passing teams in the league so far, so we expect better from them moving forward.
The next two weeks will hold the key to Romo's season. If he rolls through the Texans and Seahawks, we can be sure he is fully recovered from offseason back surgery. At least he gave us some promising signs Sunday.

(9/28/14) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo played his best game of the season Week 4 against the Saints, hitting 22 of 29 throws for 262 yards and three touchdowns with no turnovers. Romo posted a 137.4 passer rating and added 20 yards on six rushes, including a career-long 21-yard scramble.
With the Saints loading the box in a fruitless attempt to stop DeMarco Murray, Romo picked apart single coverage. He found second-year wideout Terrance Williams for 6- and 23-yard touchdowns in the first half, then sealed the 38-17 win with a late 18-yard score to Dez Bryant.
Up to seven touchdowns against four interceptions but still looking for his first 300-yard game, Romo faces a tough Houston defense in Week 5.
|Tony Romo, Dez Bryant ready for Saints |

(9/28/14) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) and wideout Dez Bryant (shoulder) are active as expected for Sunday night's game against the Saints. Both had been listed as probable.
|Tony Romo is expected to be fine coming off back surgery in December, and we expect him to remain a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback. Romo was No. 8 in Fantasy points last year in a standard league with 3,828 passing yards, 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions on 64 percent completions. He could see a boost in production this year with Scott Linehan calling plays since Linehan allowed Matthew Stafford to throw it at will with the Lions. Romo loses Miles Austin this season, but he still has a standout receiving corps with Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Jason Witten leading the way. Keep an eye on Romo's back and make sure he's 100 percent, but we expect him to be ready for Week 1. He is worth drafting in Round 5 or 6, and the longer you wait the better off you are in drafting Romo this year.
