This is going to be a bit high for most, but the guy was on pace for roughly 40TDs, 3INTs, 4,000 yards and 200 rushing yards last year through 11 games. He is the real deal if you ask me, and he is the kind of player that wins a league if you land the pick. If he disappoints, well, he still likely earns his ADP (if healthy).

While I really don't see Foles putting in the type of Touchdown : Interception numbers that he did last year (an almost impossible feat), Chip Kelly has said that he wants to utilize the playbook much more than the Eagles did in 2013. Considering Foles late-season grasp of the offense in which he went for 8 multi-touchdown games in his last 9 while totaling 23 overall down that stretch, you have to love his potential. And the fact that their offense is more balanced and much improved over last season, Foles should be able to produce outstanding numbers. Last year he put up a positive 0.076 FFLockerRoom True Proficiency Game Average. http://fflockerroom.com/2014/07/25/2014-fantasy-football-draft-preparation-quarterback-proficiency/
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.

Shook off rough start vs. JAC in W1 to clock top 5 fantasy QB line - Fast-paced offense should keep him in QB1 mix
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Won't repeat freakish 2013 efficiency but can be near-elite even with regression.
Scott Linehan's play-calling could ratchet up Romo's numbers
  
Huseyin Aksu
Fantasy Couch
high risk, high reward
people hate him so he may slip several rounds
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Foles is a tough call to make this season. His numbers last year were amazing, but his TD to turnover ratio will be impossible to repeat. DeSean Jackson is gone, but Jeremy Maclin is back and Zach Ertz should take a step forward. Add to that Kelly's offense and tactics to keep defenses off balance should keep Foles from regressing too badly.
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.

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.
  
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.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Hes got too good of weapons, too good of an Offensive Line and too good of a coach to have a sophomore slump. Philly went out and acquired Sproles and Matthews with the departure of DeSean Jackson. Jeremy Maclin has participated in every minicamp and OTA and looks to be fully healed from his ACL injury if he remains healthy for 16 games, hell be a Top 25 WR. Riley Cooper found a way to get 835 Receiving Yards last year with the help of DeSeasn Jackson drawing extra coverage. Jordan Matthews, whos been nothing less than stellar so far, will take over the WR2 sooner rather than later. Foles averaged 11.7 passes per TD (Peyton averaged 11.9 passes per TD) last season while throwing the ball a NFL 27th ranked 315 times for 27 TDs and 2 INTs.
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 WRs (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 Romos 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.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
He has the real potential to put up over 30 TDs in Kelly's offense. He nearly did 30 TDs and he did not play 3 games in 2013.
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.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Foles was the 11th ranked fantasy quarterback, despite starting only 10 games, but I am curious if a sophomore slump is in store. I cannot see him throwing just two interceptions for a second consecutive year. The Eagles also have to figure out how to replace the production of departed WR DeSean Jackson. They added WR Jordan Matthews and WR Josh Huff in the draft, but they will need to be able to contribute right away. A weak receiving core could prevent Foles from being an elite fantasy option, although he should still be very good.
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.
  
KJ
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
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Foles was a beast in Philly last year. His system and weapons are there, but was he a one year wonder?
Romo has the back injury to worry about but his system and weapons still give him a shot at top-10 numbers.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Inhuman TD:INT rate impossible to repeat, shaky receiving corps with Maclin as the WR1.
A virtual lock for 4,000 passing yards and 30 TDs as long as he stays upright.
