Kevin Roberts

Romo is fine and is at home, plus the Niners are a bit depleted. I think he's better than some think in this one.
Palmer has the weapons. The question is if the Chargers pass D is any better. Even if it is, Palmer should still put up numbers.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Romo has a tough opener, going against a San Fran D that allowed the fifth fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks in 2013.
 
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
The Cowboys passing game is one of the better ones in the NFL. And considering the poor defense, you have to love the play from behind cheap fantasy points. Romo should be a solid QB1 this week.
*Falling Star* - Not that we were relying on Palmer to contribute significantly in Week 1 of the NFL season, but if star running back Andre Ellington misses the game Palmer's value could take a slight slide. Keep tuned in to FFLockerRoom Sports for updates on this situation throughout the weekend.
