The Cardinals are 26th against fantasy quarterbacks, but it remains to be seen how the back contusion impacts Romo's consistency on offense.
The Colts dropped to 17th against fantasy quarterbacks, thanks to last week's game. Keep in mind that Big Ben tallied six of the 14 passing touchdowns the Colts have given up this year last week. The Colts are much tougher on D than they showed; it is not a great matchup for Eli coming out of his bye week.
