Tony Romo re-entering must-start territory


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2014) Early in the season, Tony Romo looked like he might be destined for a game manager role with the Cowboys' rededication to the running game, but he and running back DeMarco Murray have managed to share the spotlight in recent weeks.

Romo's three-touchdown effort Week 7 against the Giants gave him five straight games with multiple touchdown passes. Murray's production, as you probably know, hasn't let up during that stretch. He became the first running back in NFL history to begin a season with seven straight 100-yard games.

Romo's resurgence may have been inevitable considering the weapons he has on offense. Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Jason Witten you already know about, but he may have added another in rookie tight end Gavin Escobar, who caught two touchdown passes in Week 7.

Though the 300-yard games may not be as regular for Romo this season, the touchdowns are reason enough to stick with him in Fantasy. You have to like his chances of delivering another strong performance Week 8 against Washington.


Cowboys' Tony Romo drops three touchdowns Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo tossed three touchdowns Week 7 against the Giants.

Romo completed 17 of 23 attempts for 279 yards and three scores. He did throw an interception and took two sacks during the contest. Romo had no trouble shredding through the Giants defense. He averaged 12.1 yards per attempt. Dez Bryant proved to be the main beneficiary. Bryant consistently beat the Giants coverage during the game. He was responsible for nine receptions and 151 yards. 

Romo will take on Washington Week 8. 


Cowboys will have Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Cowboys will have their offensive studs Week 7 against the Giants.

Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray are all active for the contest. The trio were all considered probable coming into the contest and were never a serious threat to miss the game. Murray has been dealing with an illness, while Byrant has a shoulder injury.


Romo, Murray, Bryant among probables for Cowboys in Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Cowboys offensive tackle Doug Free (foot) and linebacker Bruce Carter (thigh) were the only players to be ruled out for Sunday's clash at home against the Giants in Week 7, according to the team's official website.

The following players on the injury report have been ruled probable for the Cowboys on Sunday: Wide receiver Dez Bryant (shoulder), defensive end Jack Crawford (calf), outside linebacker Cameron Lawrence (thigh), middle linebacker Rolando McClain (groin, personal), running back DeMarco Murray (illness), offensive tackle Jermey Parnell (chest), quarterback Tony Romo (back, ankle), offensive tackle Tyron Smith (ankle) and defensive end Anthony Spencer (knee, foot).


Tony Romo goes through normal Thursday practice routine


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who returned to practice after sitting out Wednesday due to back and ankle injuries, said he did as much as he would normally do in practice on a Thursday, according to ESPN. Romo, who had his left ankle taped, said he feels good.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo practices Thursday with left ankle taped


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who missed practice Wednesday due to ankle and back injuries, was back at practice Thursday. Romo, who had his left ankle taped, did not perform any handoffs during the running back drill, but he was able to work some during passing drills, per ESPN.

Report: Tony Romo could miss Thursday practice too


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo won't practice Wednesday for the fifth consecutive week. It's possible he could be held out Thursday too due to rib and ankle injuries he suffered in the win at Seattle, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Coach Jason Garrett said Romo "seemed a little sore" during Wednesday morning's walkthrough but added, "I think he's going to be OK."

Romo plays the Giants on Sunday.


Tony Romo says he might have rib injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo took a big hit from Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner in the first quarter Sunday. "My back is fine," Romo told reporters. "My rib cartilage might have something to say about it, but we'll see."

Romo, who had December back surgery, has accounted for nine touchdowns and three turnovers over the past four games entering Week 7 against the Giants.


Tony Romo posts fourth straight game with two-plus touchdowns


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo produced his fourth straight game with multiple touchdowns Week 6 at Seattle, completing 21 of 32 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. Romo did lose a fumble, the third turnover he's committed over the past four weeks.

Over that same stretch, Romo has thrown for nine touchdowns while passing for at least 250 yards three times. Romo hit tight end Gavin Escobar for a 2-yard score in the first quarter Sunday and tight end Jason Witten for a 3-yard touchdown right before halftime. On the scoring throw to Witten, Dallas' offensive line gave Romo a clean pocket for about five seconds.

Romo shook off a ferocious first-half hit from linebacker Bobby Wagner to lead the Cowboys to their most impressive win yet. Romo plays the Giants in Week 7.


Tony Romo set to face Seahawks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who was probable with the back injury he's nursed all season, is active as expected for the game at Seattle.

Top Cowboys on Friday injury report deemed probable


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) As expected, linebacker Bruce Carter has been ruled out by the Cowboys for their Week 6 battle at Seattle. He has been plagued by a thigh injury.

The Friday injury report indicates, however, that the team is otherwise fairly healthy. Listed as questionable are linebackers Cameron Lawrence (thigh) and Rolando McClain (groin), tackle Jermey Parnell (chest) and defensive end Jack Crawford (calf).

The probables are headlined by quarterback Tony Romo (back), defensive end Anthony Spencer (knee) and wideout Dez Bryant (shoulder). Also receiving that designation are defensive tackle Henry Melton (calf) and defensive back Tyler Patmon (illness).


Cowboys QB feels Jason Witten might be best player in team history


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) The Cowboys have a prestigious franchise history, which includes five Super Bowl titles, 12 Hall of Famers and 18 players in their Ring of Honor. However, quarterback Tony Romo feels tight end Jason Witten might be the best player in franchise history.

"Witten's just the best," Romo said, per The Dallas Morning News. "He might be the best Dallas Cowboy of all time. Literally his career has been exceptional. He's hit every mark he ever had. He's going to go on as the first or second greatest tight end of all time. I just think I've been lucky enough to be able to play with him."


Cowboys QB Tony Romo gets another day of rest


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) For the fourth straight week, the Cowboys gave quarterback Tony Romo a day of rest. Romo, who had back surgery in the offseason, participated in a walk-through but will not practice on Wednesday, head coach Jason Garrett told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Since his three-interception performance against the 49ers in Week 1, Romo has averaged 244.8 passing yards per game along with an 8-to-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio over his last four games.

The Cowboys will have a difficult matchup Week 6 at Seattle. He hasn't faced the Seahawks since the second week of the 2012 season.


Seahawks showing vulnerability against the pass


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) The safe assumption over the last season has been to sit all but the best Fantasy options when the Seahawks show up on the schedule. However, Seattle's defense has been surprisingly vulnerable against the pass so far, which throws a wrench in conventional wisdom when it comes to the Cowboys' Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams.

Though the Seahawks still rank as the toughest rush defense in the league, they have been remarkably pedestrian against the pass. Part of that is the result of going against Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning to open the season, but even Kirk Cousins lit them up for 23 Fantasy points last week. Romo has found his way in recent weeks after a slow start, and might actually be a worthy start for Week 6 in Seattle.

Of course, how Romo plays will go a long way toward defining if Bryant or Williams is worth using. The Seahawks have been vulnerable against the pass, but have still held opposing teams' No. 1 receivers to just 48 yards per game and no touchdowns. Still, Bryant has too much skill to consider sitting against even a tough matchup like this. Williams might find room to succeed if Bryant is bottled up, but it is tough to rely on someone who has topped five targets just three times in five games.

Eventually, the Seahawks might turn things around and return to the smothering defense they have been in the past. If you want to pass on Romo this week, we wouldn't blame you -- Jamey Eisenberg has him as far down as 17th among quarterbacks in his rankings for Week 6. However, this is no longer a must-sit matchup, based on what we have seen this season. 


Tony Romo looked great this week, but next week ...


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) The story was the same for Tony Romo this week as it was last week -- great pass protection helped him get time in the pocket to throw downfield to his more-than-capable receivers. Romo had deep completions of 18, 28, 34, 37 and 43 yards in the Cowboys' Week 5 win over the Texans. 

But the story changes next week when he and the 'Boys play at the Seahawks. That defense is known for their strong pass defense and playing well at home. We've seen far too many quarterbacks head to Seattle only to be humbled, the most notable of which this season being Aaron Rodgers. Romo shouldn't be considered a must in Week 6. 


Cowboys' Tony Romo fires pair of TD passes in OT win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo tossed a pair of touchdowns and cracked the 300-yard mark for the first time this season in an overtime win at home over the Texans in Week 5.

Romo spun out of a J.J. Watt sack and fired a 43-yard laser to Terrance Williams for a touchdown in the third quarter. He found Dez Bryant for a short 2-yard touchdown pass in the the fourth quarter.

Romo compiled 324 yards through the air while completing 28 of 41 passes. He added two touchdowns and one interception, registering a 98.0 passer rating. He has a 9-to-5 touchdown-to-interception over his first five games.

The Cowboys will travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks in Week 6.


Tony Romo, Dez Bryant good to go for Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Dez Bryant were both given the green light and ruled active for Sunday's in-state showdown at home against the Texans. Both players were never in danger of missing any game action, as they were listed as probable leading up to Sunday.

Romo has passed for 936 yards with seven touchdowns and four interceptions while registering a 69.5 completion percentage. Bryant caught a season-low three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown against the Saints in Week 4. He has 291 yards and three touchdowns on 23 receptions this season.


Cowboys in good health with Sunday game looming


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Despite the loss of linebacker Bruce Carter to a thigh injury, the Cowboys are in good shape heading into their Week 5 game against Houston. The only other player listed as anything less than probable is defensive tackle Henry Melton (hamstring).

Headlining the probables are quarterback Tony Romo (back) and wide receiver Dez Bryant (shoulder). Defensive end Anthony Spencer (knee) and linebacker Rolando McClain (groin) are also probable.


Tony Romo still less than automatic


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/1/2014) 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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) 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
(9/29/2014) 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. 


Tony Romo nearly perfect on SNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) 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.

(9/28/2014) 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.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Quarterback Tony Romo (back) and stud wideout Dez Bryant (shoulder) lead a contingent of Cowboys deemed probable for the Week 4 game against New Orleans. Also receiving that designation are linebacker Justin Durant and tight end Gavin Escobar (knee).

The questionables on the list are defensive tackles Terrell McClain (concussion), Henry Melton (hamstring) and Davon Coleman (knee), defensive end Anthony Spencer (knee) and linebacker Rolando McClain (groin).


Tony Romo feeling better after day off


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo received a day off Wednesday, according to the team.

Romo also sat out of Wednesday's practice last week, and said he felt much better heading into the team's game against the Rams. He may have decided to sit out this Wednesday for the same reason. Romo had offseason back surgery, and is attempting to work his way back to 100 percent. While he's been able to play, Romo said he didn't have his usual strength the first two weeks of the season.
