While some may debate Tony Romo's place in the pantheon of NFL quarterbacks, no one can question his value in fantasy circles. He's among the league leaders in career completion rate, yards per attempt, and TD%. The entirety of his supporting cast returns from a season when Romo threw 3,800 yard and 31 touchdowns in 15 games. New play-caller Scott Linehan is going to call a more aggressive attack and that means more passing attempts than last year's 535. Assuming his recovery from an offseason back procedure progresses well, Romo is among a handful of valuable fantasy QB1s that can be had for a fair price on draft day. (May 21)

Latest News

Cowboys | Tony Romo practices (Tue Aug 26, 10:54 AM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is practicing Tuesday, Aug. 26. He won't play in the final preseason game this week.

Our View: Romo is still "safe" as a low QB1 with mid QB1 upside. The Cowboys defense has been good enough to keep teams from playing keep away, and Romo's back needs to feel ok, but at the cheap 8th/9th round price, those risks are easy to tolerate.

Cowboys | Tony Romo sits out (Mon Aug 25, 02:36 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) did not participate during the media-access portion of practice Monday, Aug. 25.

Our View: This is a common practice with the Cowboys. Romo gets some time off on certain days to help his back. It's no problem, and something fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned about.

Cowboys | Tony Romo ready for season (Thu Aug 21, 02:37 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) said he is ready for the regular season. Romo said he had a good week of practice with no limitations as he returns from offseason back surgery.

Our View: Good news for the Cowboys and Romo owners, as the borderline QB1 is healthy and ready. The Cowboys will occasionally take it easy on him between now and the regular season, but that's just caution and nothing to worry about. If the defense is as bad as it looks, he could be in for a big year in terms of yardage totals.

Cowboys | Tony Romo practicing (Thu Aug 21, 11:24 AM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is participating in practice Wednesday, Aug. 21. Romo will be able to play in the third preseason game.

Our View: This is good news but we were never really worried. The Cowboys were always going to be cautious around and with Romo, so the occasional streak of missed practices aren't a big deal. Of course, there is concern about his health and back during the season, so keep that in mind when grabbing backups if you select Romo as your starter. He's a borderline QB1/QB2 so a little extra caution in grabbing a backup is in order.

Cowboys | Tony Romo returns (Thu Aug 21, 09:46 AM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) returned to practice Thursday, Aug. 21.

Our View: The team is being cautious, because they need him in November and December more than August. So while he may sit out on occasion, this is not a big deal.
