The Falcons allowed the 7th most fantasy points to quarterbacks in 2013 and there is no reason to believe this defense is significantly improved.
Romo has a tough opener, going against a San Fran D that allowed the fifth fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks in 2013.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
ATL defense isn't scary and Brees plays amazing indoors, so proceed as usual.
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.
  
Tom Schriner

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.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
New season, same narrative on Brees. Yes this game is played indoors, but he's not a top-2 QB for me on the road. At least, not with other strong options on the table.
