Fantasy Tip: Romo can't be trusted as a fantasy starter, but if he lands in a quality offense, he is worth grabbing as a QB2 in 2017. If he can actually stay on the field, he can be a high-end fantasy backup or useful trade chip.

Fantasy Tip: Romo has a lengthy injury history, and he's entering his age-37 season. He's someone to target as a backup if you land an elite QB in fantasy.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was held to a combined two catches for 18 yards in two meetings with the New York Giants in 2016, and CB Janoris Jenkins said he knows all of Bryant's tendencies. "Take away the slant and the dig, and when they get in 21 personnel and Dez is inside the number, you take away the corner post, he doesn't have nothing else," Jenkins said.
Fantasy Tip: Bryant ran hot and cold all year, but he still finished with eight touchdowns and 796 yards despite missing four games. He brings some risk, but he is well worth the gamble as a WR2.

Impending free-agent LB DeMarcus Ware is "leaving the door open" to play next season in Dallas, where he spent the first nine seasons of his career.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is a Texas native, but this seems like an unlikely marriage from the Cowboys' perspective for multiple reasons. First and foremost, an aging Peterson isn't play much over Ezekiel Elliott. Secondly, "All Day" isn't particularly strong in the passing game, so he wouldn't even be a third-down upgrade for Dallas. Additionally, Peterson isn't going to come cheap and probably wouldn't be all that open to accepting a pure backup role anyway.

Fantasy Tip: Romo turns 37 in April and is coming off a significant back injury, but he was still able to give all interested parties a glimpse that he still has a little something left in the Cowboys' regular-season finale. The likelihood is that Dallas ends up releasing him as potential suitors won't be all that inclined to trade for an aging quarterback who may only have one year left with a fairly substantial contract. If he leaves Dallas, he will be a high-risk fantasy QB2 almost regardless of where he lands.
