A virtual lock for 4,000 passing yards and 30 TDs as long as he stays upright.
Needs to be more consistent through the air to crack the elite tier.

Fantasy Couch
people hate him so he may slip several rounds
will have a much better season
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Romo is a slam-dunk to finish in the Top 10 among fantasy quarterbacks when he is healthy and I see no reason why he cannot do that in 2014. Most of the key losses for the Cowboys have been on defense, so there will be a ton of pressure for the Cowboys offense to score points this year. The one question mark is his back holding up over the course of a 16-game season.
I think Kaepernick is the new Michael Vick and I do not mean that in a negative way. He is a popular player on a good team that makes plays with his feet that nobody can make, but there just is not enough production in the passing game to warrant ranking him in the Top 5. Too many people rank him in the Top 10 among fantasy, because of his exciting style of play.

Fantasy Team Advice
A lackluster defense should ensure that Tony Romo is a gunslinger in 2014, which is just what fantasy owners want to hear. He is often one of the most overlooked QB's on draft day, and can be had at an excellent price
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Romo has a number of players to target in 2014 and if he can remain healthy he has amazing upside. He does carry an injury risk, but with the Dallas defense hurting you should expect Romo to be throwing the ball a ton this year.
In fantasy you have to have a player that will put up more than 30 TD's in a season for you to win your championship. Kaepernick will not break 30 TD's in 2014.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
He'll be on most of my teams unless a top QB falls pretty far. I love that Scot Linehan will be calling the plays and that the Cowboys have no defense. It may not be pretty, but Romo will put up numbers on the quantity of attempts this year.
Kaepernick has looked strong this preseason and gets his best receiver Michael Crabtree back after missing him most of last season. He also played on an injured foot most of last year. He should be able to run better this season and with Crabtree back, he should be able to up his passing numbers.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Scott Linehan's play-calling could ratchet up Romo's numbers
Great tools, but a conservative offense translates into some dud weeks.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Rounding out with Romo/Wilson/Cutler the back end of the QB1 group this year looks very deep. No reason to assume less than last year's 3800/31/10 line here, given Dallas' presumed struggles on defense and pass heavy tendencies.
 
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
Coming off a second-straight off season in which he has had back surgery, Romo claims that he is healthier than he has felt in a few years. But the Cowboys have a pretty tough schedule. Don't expect much more than lower-end QB1 numbers in 12-team formats.
*Stinking it up big in the preseason. Will need to prove himself to get back into the QB1 range.***Has a solid WR group around him and a tight end in Vernon Davis who is on a mission. Probably will never live up to his potential that people placed upon him a couple seasons ago, but still a solid low-end QB1, high-end QB2.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Romo has the back injury to worry about but his system and weapons still give him a shot at top-10 numbers.
Kap could be even better in 2014 now that Michael Crabtree is healthy again, but he still lacks consistency as a passer. There is still top-5 upside here, however.

Looks way overrated compared to ADP, but the Cowboys' defense is awful, and Scott Linehan loves to throw the football. Could flirt with top 3 status.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Just like Matt Ryan and Atlanta you can expect a lot of shootouts this season due to a horrendous Dallas Defense. This offseason the Cowboys went out and snatched up former Detroit Offensive Coordinator, Scott Linehan. Linehan is a pass-happy OC that is used to working with Top WR’s (Calvin/Moss) which is perfect for Dez Bryant. The past 3 season under OC Lineham, Matt Stafford averaged 42.7 Passing Attempts per game; expect an up-tick in Romo’s 33.4 Pass Attempts last season. Romo will be among the league leaders in Pass Attempts and Yards surrounded by lethal weapons which makes him a darkhourse at the possibility of a Top 5 Fantasy QB.
If you miss out on one of the big boys, we feel that Kaepernick and Cutler offer the greatest amount of upside for fantasy owners. The San Francisco Chronicle recently reported that since 2011, the 49ers have not ranked any higher than 31st in the NFL in Passing Attempts. Additionally, Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman expressed that they could stray away a bit from their ground-pounding roots. San Fran bolstered their WR corps by adding Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd to a group that already included Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. Kaepernick had a dismal season last year totaling 3,197 Passing Yards and 21 TDs on only 416 Attempts in 16 Games. We consider Kaepernick on the 3rd Tier of Fantasy QBs, however he carries one of the highest ceilings within that tier.
