In the Cowboys opening day Week 1 matchup against the 49ers, Tony Romo completed just 23 passes on 37 attempts for a stat line of 281 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. (Source: Rotoworld
Fantasy Impact: We knew going into the season Romo was a late round gamble. Although being drafted late, there is some value to be had throughout the season as the Cowboys have great RB, WR and TE fantasy talent. This was not the case in Week 1 against a stout 49ers defense. What is scary about this is that in the past, we would blame the terrible play of the Cowboys offensive line. After Sunday's performance, we have only Romo to blame.
In Week 2, the Cowboys will be at Tennessee, who is coming off a 26-10 win against the Kansas City Chiefs. It is noted that the Titans' defense did pick off Alex Smith three times, while giving up a total of 202 passing yards. Alex Smith is not Tony Romo, but It should be another battle for Romo, his fantasy owners, and the Cowboys. Start looking for a SOS [Strength-of-Schedule] start in place of Romo as a Plan B.

According to Dez Bryant, Tony Romo somehow convinced the Cowboys Coaching Staff to allow him to stay in the game for an extra series against the Miami Dolphins last Saturday night. Bryant was impressed at Romo's desire to stay in the game and get extra reps. (Source: Dallas News
Fantasy Impact: After the "Big 3" at QB, Romo has as good of a chance as anyone to finish 4th or 5th amongst QBs after it is all said and done. With an ADP of 85/QB12, Romo is a great value this year. However, due to his bad back, be sure to draft a second QB a round or two later to make sure you've covered yourself in case he gets hurt.

In the Cowboys third preseason game against the Miami Dolphins, Romo went 10 of 18 for 87 yards but more importantly was sacked 3 times and under constant pressure. (Source: ESPN Dallas
Fantasy Impact: Romo and potential fantasy owners need his O-line to be the best they have ever been if he is going to get through the season with his surgically-repaired back. There is massive potential for Romo and the Cowboys offense who expect to see plenty of action with a suspect defense on the field. The shaky O-line play is scary, but Romo's current ADP of 12th QB being drafted is too good to pass up, just make sure there is a solid backup option available.

Romo returned to practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday. The Cowboys continue to control the amount of work Romo gets week to week and he says he is ready to go despite the question marks surrounding his surgically repaired back. (Source: ESPN Dallas
Fantasy Impact: The Cowboys will likely live and die based on Romo's back this season. The good news for fantasy owners is they don't have to live with that burden. His ADP currently sits at 85 (12th QB off the board) meaning there is little risk associated with drafting Romo. There is huge potential for Romo this season with new OC Linehan and the plethora of weapons at his disposal. Because of the low ADP, he is truly a low risk high reward QB even with the back issues.

Dallas Cowboys QBs coach Wade Wilson said Tony Romo has been having issues throwing the deep ball since his back surgery in December. (Source: Fort Worth Star Telegram
Fantasy Impact: "It’s been OK. I think the deeper the ball goes down the field, it’s a little bit more inconsistent," Wade Wilson said. Romo's surgically repaired back is concerning, but it's still very early in the preseason. Romo will sit out the Cowboys first preseason game August 7 against the Chargers and will likely see his first 2014 game action August 16, against the Ravens.

Despite VP Stephen Jones proclaiming Romo would practice Tuesday afternoon, the highly debated QB sat out. Team officials claim there has not been a setback and the rest is just to make certain Tony is ready for the upcoming full pad workouts. (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: Romo's back has been a concern for many this offseason and despite what team officials say, we can't be certain Romo is 100%. His status should be closely monitored until he proves he is fully healthy. Injury problems aside, with all the weapons he has around him, Romo is poised for a big season under Scott Linehan and is a steal at his current ADP of 12th QB off the board.

ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer claims Tony Romo will be a full go at the start of training camp and will participate in all team activities. (Source: ESPN Dallas
Fantasy Impact: This is great news for Romo's fantasy potential as it shows that last season's back surgery is currently not an issue. With new pass happy OC Scott Linehan in town and a presumably healthy back, Romo is poised for big numbers this year. Stud WR Dez Bryant, 2nd year breakout candidate Terrance Williams, TE Jason Whitten, and versatile RB Demarco Murray provide a much more all-around potent attack than what Linehan ever had to work with in Detroit. Romo is a steal at his current ADP (88 according to FantasyPros), and means redraft participants can load up at other positions while waiting for a potential top 5 QB in the later rounds.

As Jason Garrett and the Dallas Cowboys prepare for yet another inevitable 8-8 season and a crushing final-game-of-the-year loss that causes them to miss out on an NFC East division title, there’s been an awful lot of attention on Tony Romo. Nothing new there, really. Tones Romes is about as divisive a player as we have today in the league. I, for one, love Romo and his game, and all the cri...
