Tony Romo, QB Dallas Cowboys

Rankings

Notes: Romo had his highest PPG average in the last seven seasons despite recovering from back surgery last year. He finished #11 for the third straight year, and it was his 7th top 11 finish in the last eight seasons, with the lone exception being 2010, when he broke his collarbone. He should continue to post top 12 numbers provided Dez Bryant’s contract situation doesn’t cause his top weapon to miss any games. The Cowboys may have to throw the ball more often after losing DeMarco Murray to free agency.

Cowboys Beat: Dallas offense will run the same

Monday, June 29, 2015, 8:35am

Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

Cowboys beat writer Brandon George thinks Dallas will run the same kind of offense even with the loss of RB DeMarco Murray to free agency.

George: The Cowboys, I believe, will go about their offense the same way as last year with emphasizing the run game behind a dominant offensive line. At least early in the season. If the run game starts to struggle, you could see them start to shy away from it and put the ball int he hands of QB Tony Romo more again. And that hasn't always been positive. They need a strong rushing game again to make this offense click.

Fantasy Impact:

In another question, George went on to say he believes Joseph Randle is the team's RB1, but Lance Dunbar and Darren McFadden will also have roles in the running game.
George added that things could change but he'd "put [his] money on Randle at this point." We agree with George and have Randle ranked the highest among the Dallas backs - coming in 24th with an ADP of the sixth round in 10 team leagues. If he can manage to keep the RB1 role, he could provide owners with some nice value from that draft slot.

Scouting Report

Week 19: Romo vs Packers

Tony Romo did enough last week to get his team to the next round of the playoffs, completing 61% of his passes for 293 yards, two touchdowns and zero INTs although he did have a fumble. It wasn't easy against the Lions who had a good game plan, double teaming Romo's favorite target Dez Bryant. But the Cowboys were able to come back and advance to the Divisional Round where they will head to the frozen tundra.

Being on the road has not fazed the 2014 Cowboys as they are a perfect 8-0. However, Green Bay is always tough in January and the Packers had a week off to rest the weary. The matchup is neutral as the Pack is 15th in aFPA to quarterbacks. The bigger issue this week is there are a lot of good quarterbacks playing which pushes Romo down the list for Week 19. Romo is not a bad start as he should put up some decent numbers, but he is in the bottom half of the quarterbacks still playing this weekend.
