New York Giants gave up the 10th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 18.5.
BENCH - Chicago gave up the 2nd fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 12.3.
  
Staff Rankings
Fantasy Football Freaks
He averaged 26 points against the Giants in 2012. Look for a strong start in a divisional matchup.

Dez will torch the NYG secondary.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Not the 10th best QB in the NFL, but on a fantasy perspective, there is no denying Romo’s ability to rack up points. Yes, he will burn you with games where he tosses 2-3 INTs, but Romo will also have games where he rolls up 300 yards and 3 TDs. The big play ability of Dez Bryant and Jason Witten gives Romo stable options from week to week. If you miss on the big boys, Romo is still considered lightly elite.
The tier from Cutler on down to Flacco should state – “You get what you get.”
  
Raju Byfield

Additions of Williams, Randle help solve depth issues, can keep going strong even if injuries at RB and WR strike; make no mistake Romo is still a high floor QB1
Bernard is the weapon Dalton needs to take next step
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Romo put up massive numbers last year, as he was essentially tasked with getting the Cowboys out of big-time deficits all season long. If the offensive line play can improve over where it was in 2012 (low hurdle), Romo should be in for another big season.
Dalton still has A.J. Green, and the Bengals are hoping the tight end duo of Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert will add some versatility to the passing game. But he can't really throw the ball downfield very effectively, and is pretty average overall.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Romo had 747 passing yards in 2 games against the Giants last year, so he figures to have a big yardage day in the opener. The question is will he throw 3 touchdowns and 1 pick like he did in New York last year or 1 touchdown and 4 picks like he did in Dallas last year.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Romo is always a candidate for a big game at home, but Giants can have his # from time to time.
I don't like this matchup on the road at all for the weak-armed Dalton.
  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Romo still has the second best WR duo in the league of Austin Miles and Dez Bryant, along with star TE Jason Witten. You put Tom Brady with that group, and Tom Brady is probably the #1 QB in 2013. But this is Tony Romo, and Romo will make bad throws and fail when you need him the most. The offense is going to try running the ball more this season, which they should. But Romo will still get that 300 Yard/2 TD game more often than not.
Dalton is similar to Matt Stafford by only having 1 WR. But the difference between Stafford and Dalton is Stafford can fling the ball anywhere. Dalton is a West Coast offense QB with an arm that is geared for only 1 WR. Andy is a 3,500 Yard QB with 25 TDs at the very best.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Romo has always put up good fantasy numbers against the Giants. For his career he's averaging 269 yards passing and 2.7 touchdowns. Last year he averaged 372 yards passing and two touchdowns. He also threw a whole load of interceptions, but if he plays anything like last year’s season opener he's a top QB this week.
