As I had told you last week, Romo was ready for a breakout game against the Saints. He tossed 3 touchdowns and added 262 passing yards, his best performance by far for the season. But don't get too excited just yet. He has to go against the Texans in Week 5 which will be a much truer test if the Dallas quarterback is close to being back to his old-self or if Week 4 was more of a result of the right matchup.
Outside of Week 1, Dalton hasn't attempted more than 23 pass attempts in any given game. Week 5 pits the Bengals against the Patriots. Look for more of the same as New Englands' secondary can wreak havoc but they most definitely can be ran on.

The Texans are 8th against fantasy quarterbacks and the Cowboys have transformed into a running team this year. Romo has QB2 value this week.
