Arizona surprisingly allowed the 7th most fantasy points to quarterbacks last year, I think Brees is a solid QB1 choice this week.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Romo usually plays a very good game against the Giants in 19 career games he has 38 touchdown passes against the G Men. He should be an excellent fantasy option against a Giants D that allowed the 4th most points to fantasy quarterbacks last year and could be without DE JPP.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

The desert is never fun and AZ was beastly on D in 2014, but they lost their DC and a TON of talent. I think Brees will be fine.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Cowboys should continue to try to run but Romo will be needed and he routinely demolishes the G-Men. Plus, he's at home.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

The Cardinals strength on defense was actually against the run last season, while they gave up the fourth most passing yards per game. They have skilled d-backs, but they can be beat and Drew Brees is the kind of guy who can beat them.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

In two games last season Romo put up 35/49, 71.4%, 554 yds, 7 TDs, 1INT against the Giants even though the Cowboys were in run mode all year. This year without DeMarco Murray we should see plenty of passing from Romo and this game has the second highest over/under on the slate with the Cowboys projected score the highest. I don't think they get those points through Joseph Randle.
