Romo still has the second best WR duo in the league of Austin Miles and Dez Bryant, along with star TE Jason Witten. You put Tom Brady with that group, and Tom Brady is probably the #1 QB in 2013. But this is Tony Romo, and Romo will make bad throws and fail when you need him the most. The offense is going to try running the ball more this season, which they should. But Romo will still get that 300 Yard/2 TD game more often than not.
Freeman is in a contract season. He also has an ELITE defense behind him for the first time in his career. This is Josh's best chance to earn a HUGE payday. Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson are two great HR WRs and Doug Martin demands everyone's attention. Big season for the Bucs in 2013.
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Romo put up massive numbers last year, as he was essentially tasked with getting the Cowboys out of big-time deficits all season long. If the offensive line play can improve over where it was in 2012 (low hurdle), Romo should be in for another big season.
Freeman got off to a great start last season, as he had 18 TD passes and just five picks through the first nine games of the year. Then, he completely tanked to finish the year, and the Bucs' playoff odds did so along with him. Where's the 2010 Josh Freeman that threw just six INTs all year?
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Additions of Williams, Randle help solve depth issues, can keep going strong even if injuries at RB and WR strike; make no mistake Romo is still a high floor QB1
Fresh off of a 4,000 yard, 27 TD season being ranked this low is a testament to strength at the QB position
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Not the 10th best QB in the NFL, but on a fantasy perspective, there is no denying Romo’s ability to rack up points. Yes, he will burn you with games where he tosses 2-3 INTs, but Romo will also have games where he rolls up 300 yards and 3 TDs. The big play ability of Dez Bryant and Jason Witten gives Romo stable options from week to week. If you miss on the big boys, Romo is still considered lightly elite.
 
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
New York Giants gave up the 10th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 18.5.
New York Jets gave up the 8th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 14.1.
  
Staff Rankings
Fantasy Football Freaks
He averaged 26 points against the Giants in 2012. Look for a strong start in a divisional matchup.

Dez will torch the NYG secondary.
 
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Romo has always put up good fantasy numbers against the Giants. For his career he's averaging 269 yards passing and 2.7 touchdowns. Last year he averaged 372 yards passing and two touchdowns. He also threw a whole load of interceptions, but if he plays anything like last year’s season opener he's a top QB this week.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Romo is always a candidate for a big game at home, but Giants can have his # from time to time.
Tough road matchup to get things going. Not a big fan of Freeman to begin with, so don't love him here.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Romo had 747 passing yards in 2 games against the Giants last year, so he figures to have a big yardage day in the opener. The question is will he throw 3 touchdowns and 1 pick like he did in New York last year or 1 touchdown and 4 picks like he did in Dallas last year.
