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 QB1Could easily end the season as a top five option if he is truly unleashed  
Staff Rankings
RotoBaller
Dez will torch the NYG secondary.   
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
Not the 10th best QB in the NFL, but on a fantasy perspective, there is no denying Romoís 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.A lot of rankings are posting Wilson higher than he should be. Without Percy Harvin you have a 2012 Seattle offense. He has sleeper appeal, but Iím allowing others to bite in 2013. Count me out.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Romo is always a candidate for a big game at home, but Giants can have his # from time to time.Wilson can overcome any matchup, but not loving him on road against rising CAR D.  
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 yearís season opener he's a top QB this week.Wilson had a poor game against the panthers last season, but that was early Wilson. The later in the year Wilson was a better player. The Panther pass D was strong last season and they get Jon Beason back along with rookie Star Lotulelei. So they shouldn't have much trouble up front, but they can be beat in the secondary with Chris Gamble gone. Wilson can get it done through the air and ground so he's hard to bench.  
Staff Rankings
Fantasy Football Freaks
He averaged 26 points against the Giants in 2012. Look for a strong start in a divisional matchup.Tough matchup for Wilson to start the season but he always finds a way to put up solid fantasy stats each week.  
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.Wilson tied an NFL rookie record with 26 TD passes last season, and, with the addition of the dynamic Percy Harvin, Seattle's offense should be taking to the air more often than they did in 2012. This bodes well for DangeRuss, for sure.  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
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.Wilson is the Marshawn Lynch killer in the Redzone. But more importantly, he keeps drives alive. Russell added a new toy of Percy Harvin to add on Sidney Rice and Golden Tate. If Wilson had to drop back and throw the ball 30 Times a game, Wilson could be a Top 5 option.  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Sports Empire
New York Giants gave up the 10th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 18.5.Carolina gave up the 11th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 15.8.  
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.Carolina was the 10th ranked fantasy defense against quarterbacks and have looked tough in the preseason. I think this game could be one of the lower scoring games of the week and Wilson is also a QB2 in the opener, as the Hawks offense is not as good on the road as it is at home.
