2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Tony Romos weak collarbone made him a fantasy bust last season when he missed 12 games after breaking the bone two different times. In the two games where he left with injury his fantasy owners were left with poor results as he failed to reach 200 yards or throw a touchdown in either game. The Cowboys offensive skill players suffered as a result. The team has once again failed to add a competent backup, so the Cowboys will need to pray the best offensive line in the game and a strong running game will help keep Romo on the field instead of on the sidelines in street clothes. After spending the fourth overall pick in the draft on Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliot, the coaching staff is likely preparing to return to the 2014 run-heavy game plan which led to a playoff appearance for the Cowboys. Fantasy owners must keep in mind that although Romo was very efficient and productive during that season, the team finished 31st in pass attempts capping Romos upside. He did throw for 34 scores that season, but was held to only 3,705 yards in 15 games, finishing as only a fringe fantasy QB1. At nearly 37 years of age, its hard to imagine Romo becoming less brittle than hes been, making him an option on draft day only if he drops into double digit rounds.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Tony Romo (back) timetable still uncertain
Cowboys unsure if QB will return
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 30, 11:16 am

Dallas Cowboys
According to Todd Archer of ESPN, Jerry Jones and the Cowboys are uncertain how much time Tony Romo will miss with the compression fracture in his back. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Jones told 105.3 The Fan in Dallas "I don't know and don't know that anybody does. But it's quite a range there, four to six, six to eight, eight to (10)." Of course, HC Jason Garrett has yet to even rule Romo out of the season opener against the New York Giants, but that's probably just wishful thinking. Romo isn't worth selecting as anything but a high-upside, third QB flier as the last pick in redrafts. For now, Dak Prescott appears to be the guy generating the most excitement, even if it's pure speculation based on a few promising series in preseason.


Injury Tony Romo will play Friday, Elliott to sit
Dallas looking to give their starting QB a series or two
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 17, 5:37 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones announced Wednesday that starting quarterback Tony Romo will play a series or two in Friday's preseason tilt with the Dolphins, per Newy Scruggs of NBC Sports Radio. Jones also told Scruggs that rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott will not play against the Dolphins. The first-round pick is back at practice, but the team will play it safe with his recently tweaked hamstring. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Dallas is being very cautious with Tony Romo considering his injury history and importance to the team's success. He remains a low risk fantasy QB entering the year, but he is clearly past his prime and carries a lot of injury risk to be trusted as anything more than a backup. Meanwhile, Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) has already returned to practice so the decision to not play him seems to be more of a precaution than a sign of trouble.


Jerry Jones all in on Dak Prescott as backup
Cowboys owner won't "deter progress" by adding another QB
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 16, 9:10 am

Dallas Cowboys
After watching Dak Prescott -- the team's fourth-round pick from Mississippi State -- complete 10 of 12 passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns, with a quarterback rating of 154.5., Jerry Jones is ready to close the door on bringing in a veteran to back up starter Tony Romo. (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

FFToday's Take: We agree with Jones that while Prescott "is a long way from Canton," getting behind the rookie and letting him learn from Romo could be a smart move. Prescott would need an injury from Romo to make any kind of fantasy mark, but he's a much more valuable fantasy commodity than any of the Cowboys' backups in the past few years.


Injury Wade Wilson: Tony Romo experiencing back stiffness
Cowboys hopes, WR stats pinned to QB's health
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 2, 12:50 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Jon Machota on Twitter: "Cowboys QB coach Wade Wilson said Tony Romo has been experiencing some back stiffness" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We're once again reminded that Romo has had serious back problems during his career in addition to the collarbone injuries which ended last season. The 36-year-old obviously carries more injury risk than most other quarterbacks, and his upside continues to plummet. More than anything else, his health will have a direct effect on the team's record and the stats of the other skill positions in the Cowboys offense. Beware.
