|The Colt McCoy era, if you can call it that, has seemingly come to a quick end in Cleveland with Weeden, the 22nd player taken in the draft, expected to take over in the starting lineup in 2012. That’s nice but the bottom line is that Weeden won’t enjoy much more success than McCoy unless the team receives improved performances from its running backs, wide receivers, tight ends and offensive linemen. McCoy suffered at least partly because he lacked a true number one wide receiver, a role the Browns hope that second-year player Greg Little can grow into. Running back Trent Richardson, the highest rated player at his position in this year’s draft, should help the ground game. While Weeden is a solid dynasty league prospect given his age, maturity and strong arm, he is not worth owning in re-draft leagues.
| Tony Romo to sit against Chargers -- Wed Aug 6 5:52 pm --|
Cowboys playing it safe
|SAN DIEGO -- Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett confirmed that quarterback Tony Romo will not play in Thursday's preseason opener against the San Diego Chargers.Romo will make his preseason debut Aug. 16 against the Baltimore Ravens at AT&T Stadium.
With Romo sitting, Brandon Weeden will start.
FF Today's Take: The Cowboys have been consistent in not pushing Romo (back surgery) back into action too quickly. Dallas' franchise quarterback is practicing and will get a few days off this weekend. Fantasy owners are being cautious with the 34-year old quarterback, taking him outside the top 100 picks according to MDC. If healthy, he will be a nice value option to fantasy owners once again in 2014.
| Romo to sit out first preseason game -- Sun Aug 3 7:00 am --|
Expected to play in game number two and three
|Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo missed a third scheduled practice Saturday out of the first eight of training camp. The Cowboys’ plan is that Romo doesn’t play in the first preseason game at San Diego on Thursday or in the last preseason game Aug. 28 against Denver.
The Cowboys want Romo to get some work in the second preseason game against Baltimore on Aug. 16 and get his most work of the preseason in the third game at Miami on Aug. 23. (http://cowboysblog.dallasnews.co)|
FF Today's Take: Romo is coming off back surgery so the Cowboys are limiting his workload. The team insists that Romo is fine and on track to start Week 1. Brandon Weeden will get the start on Thursday against San Diego.
