Cowboys | Dak Prescott makes most of chance

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 20:08:22 -0700

Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott made the start in the preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 13, against the Los Angeles Rams with QB Tony Romo resting. Prescott sizzled, completing 10 of his 12 pass attempts for 139 yards and two touchdowns, including one to Dez Bryant. His two incompletions were dropped passes, too.

Fantasy Tip: Prescott might have a future in Big D, as he certainly looked to have a good grasp of the offense. He obviously will not play as long as Romo is in Dallas, but with the veteran's injury history Prescott might see the field sooner rather than later once the games begin to count.

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 18:37:57 -0700

Cowboys | Tony Romo has stiff back

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 07:30:33 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) has been experiencing back stiffness, according to quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: Romo's fragile collarbone is the main concern, and it has diminished him to a QB2 in fantasy with high risk.

Cowboys | Tony Romo out of shape?

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 05:19:06 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) says he is not out of shape and laughed off the criticism after a photo circulated social media sites that appeared to show drastic weight gain on his behalf.

Fantasy Tip: In fairness to Romo, he's no 2015 Eddie Lacy in the photo in question. Romo may have packed on a couple of pounds, or perhaps he was wearing a rib protector for some unknown reason, but it should not come anywhere near the top of your concerns list when drafting him. That list should read: collarbone, collarbone, collarbone. Romo is a QB2 with big-time risk attached.

Cowboys | Tony Romo throwing well

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 13:08:08 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) said he's throwing as well as he ever has as he continues to recover from a broken collarbone and subsequent offseason surgery. He and the Cowboys will go over his schedule in training camp, and he may continue to take Wednesdays off depending on how his throwing feels each day. Romo did acknowledge that he can't ignore his injury history.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is one of the riskier fantasy quarterbacks year in and year out because of his extensive injury history. He has QB1 upside, but staying on the field isn't a guarantee. If he's full-go before the season starts then he should be drafted as a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2.

Cowboys | Tony Romo staying optimistic

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 12:00:50 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) believes last year's broken collarbone will turn out to be an anomaly. Romo is focused on the team performing better. He believes part of that is him being healthy and teammates improving.

Fantasy Tip: Romo hasn't played a full season since 2012, but he only missed one game in each of 2013 and 2014 before last year's injury. If he can stay on the field then he should be in contention for low-end QB1 status.

Cowboys | Tony Romo feeling great

Wed, 25 May 2016 12:26:46 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) isn't worried about his long-term future and thinks he can play four or five more years. He also said he feels "ahead of the game" in his offseason work. Quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said Romo has looked "phenomenal" in offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: The biggest issue with Romo is his terrible track record of health. He has the weapons around him on offense and an elite offensive line at his disposal to put up big numbers if he can just stay healthy. Health risks make him more of a fringe QB1, though, and he's safer as your backup.

Cowboys | No issues for Tony Romo

Thu, 12 May 2016 13:14:33 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) has not had any issues physically so far during the Cowboys' offseason program, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Garrett said that Romo has almost completely integrated back into the offseason program, adding that Romo's back is feeling well, his shoulder seems fine, he's moving around well and he's made a lot of progress.

Owner Jerry Jones said there's nothing negative about where Romo is in his current state. "Everything they hoped to accomplish technically from appraisal of surgery has gone well. Everything he's done regarding his strength, everything regarding what he's wanted to do, he's been able to do," Jones said.

Fantasy Tip: Romo's outlook for the regular season looks more promising than many could have envisioned. The key for Romo, though, will be to maintain his good health and progress -- something he hasn't been able to do. The veteran quarterback can achieve low-end QB1 numbers if he can stay on the field.

Cowboys | Tony Romo ready to go

Tue, 10 May 2016 09:52:19 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) has recovered ahead of the eight weeks at the back end of his recovery timetable, and he's expected to be a full participant in offseason practices later this month. "He's looking good," quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. "We had two practices where we've been out here on the field with the guys and he's done everything. He's throwing, he's got good velocity on all of his throws, great movement in his legs. He looks like he's re-energized because he hadn't played, you know, missed the majority of the season. So he's real energized and anxious to get going."

Fantasy Tip: The early reports are positive, but Romo presents a big health risk each time he's hit. He'll be a low-end QB1 consideration or an elite QB2.

Cowboys | Jerry Jones sees downside in drafting QB

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 18:33:45 -0700

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said drafting a quarterback with the No. 4 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft could be "problematic" if QB Tony Romo stays injury free in the coming years. "If he plays uninterrupted then you've got a problem if you've picked quarterback this year because you don't know what you got really at a time when he may be entering the markets," Jones said.

Fantasy Tip: If the Cowboys were to draft a quarterback in the first round, their fantasy value would depend on Romo suffering an injury.
