Fantasy Impact: Tony Romo missed practice on Wednesday, no shock as he has not practiced any Wednesday during the 2014 season, but his back injury is still an issue so Weeden needs to be prepared to fill in again in the Cowboys' matchup with the Jaguars. Weeden had a lot of issues in his start against the 32nd ranked passing defense of Arizona and needs to work on his rapport with receiver Dez Bryant, who did not catch a pass until there was 1:50 left in the game. Bryant had ten targets but only two receptions and Weeden was not in sync with the Cowboys top target. Weeden only completed 54% of his passes with the Cardinals defense loading up the box to stop NFL leading rusher DeMarco Murray. Weeden needs to focus on easy routes to tight end Jason Witten like Week 9 and find a way to get the ball out to Terrance Williams and Dez Bryant if Romo is unable to play. Since Romo's status is questionable this early in the week, Romo owners should be able to do better than starting Weeden. His inability to link with Bryant and Williams makes him a weak option this week, even going against the 25th ranked pass defense.

According to pre-production notes, signs lead to Brandon Weeden starting on Sunday (Source: Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: According to ESPN Dallas reports, Brandon Weeden was in TV production meetings today, a sign that he will start on Sunday. Head coach Jason Garrett and owner Jerry Jones have both said that starter Tony Romo is a game time decision but judging by his performance after his injury on Monday, it would be best if he sits out a game. Weeden may not be the best option at quarterback, but at least he has started 20 games since coming into the league in 2012 and has thrown 24 touchdowns in those starts. More recently, Weeden looked solid in relief of Romo on Monday with 69 yards and a touchdown with a 67% completion percentage. He is strongest in the short passing game, average of 6.6 yards per attempt in his career, but he has only completed 55.9% passes in his career. Players like Jason Witten and the running backs DeMarco Murray, Joseph Randle, and Lance Dunbar stand to have good games if Weeden starts, as Weeden will try to make quicker decisions with the ball. This will hurt Terrance Williams and Dez Bryant, so owners should be weary of Tony Romo's status.

The relationship between Brandon Weeden and the Dallas Cowboys was looking good at first but since the first preseason game, Weeden has continued to show signs of regression. Overall Weeden has found difficulty completing passes and has overthrown receivers more consistently then not.

Fantasy Impact: Although Weeden has been mostly playing with a horrific 2nd and 3rd string Dallas offensive line there is a reason why the Browns let him go. If you find Brandon Weeden on your fantasy roster for any reason quickly go find an alternative.
