Fantasy Impact: With the Cowboys transitioning to more of run-first offense, it is vital for Romo to make the most of his opportunities to throw the ball. Romo has answered the bell in that aspect, as he has completed 75% of his passes in back to back games for the first time since Weeks 7 and 8 of 2007. The past two weeks, Romo has also had a quarterback rating over 115, the first time since Weeks 13 and 14 of 2011 that he has been at that level in back to back weeks. Romo is making the most of his opportunities as the offense changes; he has averaged about 30 attempts per game, down from the 35 passing attempts per game in his career previous to 2014. In fact, in the Cowboys three game winning streak, Romo has been under 30 attempts in each game. For Romo, it is about quality instead of quantity, so he may not be a good QB1 in leagues where there are points per completion, but 6:1 TD:INT ratio over the past three games shows how valuable he still can be in standard leagues. That being said, the Cowboys have an interstate matchup with Houston in Week 5 before going on the road to stingy Seattle in Week 6 and playing rival New York in Week 7, so I would still be hesistant on giving Romo a chance. For Romo owners, his best value may be in the trade market. He may be able to have a good season in the long run, but if there is an owner in your league who is looking for a quarterback, you may be able to get prime value for Romo.
