Description: Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday that the team thinks that QB Tony Romo is "essentially in the prime of his career," according to the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: "I think his arm is better than ever, so we don't look at him despite his back situation that he's had over the last couple of years as somebody who is an old player by any means," Garrett said. "He simply needs to rehab his back and get himself healthy and get going again. We feel like Tony Romo has a lot of years of great football left in him." Despite Garrett's comments, we won't be surprised if Dallas takes a quarterback in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Insight: Romo will still earn the same amount of money but instead of getting a $13.5 million base salary next season, $12.5 million will be attached to his signing bonus with just $1 million going against the cap. Obviously, this won't affect Romo's fantasy value in any way.

Insight: Adam Schefter reported earlier that Romo was out for the season due to a back injury, but the Cowboys wouldn't rule him out until they put him through treatment in an attempt to have him ready for Week 17. "We spent the week exhausting all options in regards to Tony's situation -- treatment, rehab, all the different things, consulted a lot of different people on this, coach Jason Garrett said. "We just felt like as we discussed it, as yesterday wore on, that this was the best decision for him and for our organization moving forward."

11/2/2013 10:59:00 AM
Description: The Vikings will be without three starting defensive backs, including both safeties, this Sunday against Dallas.
Insight: The Vikings have allowed the fourth most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, so you were probably starting Tony Romo anyway this week, but this is an added incentive for those in shallow leagues. Be sure to start Dez Bryant (obviously), Terrance Williams and Jason Witten as well.
10/6/2013 7:48:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo went toe-to-toe with Peyton Manning Sunday in Dallas and threw for 506 yards and five touchdowns in a 50-48 loss.
Insight: Romo was unstoppable for most of the game but his late pick set up a Denver game-winning field goal as time expired. The 33-year-old has thrown for 10 touchdowns and one interception over his last three games.
9/22/2013 5:55:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had a productive afternoon Sunday against St. Louis.
Insight: Romo went off for 210 yards and three touchdowns in the victory. Amazingly, his 70.8 percent completion rate was his lowest of the season. The 137.2 QB rating Romo posted on Sunday was his highest since Week 13 of the 2012 season (150.5 rating in a win against the Eagles).
9/20/2013 3:57:00 PM
Description: Dallas quarterbackTony Romo was a full participant in Friday's practice.
Insight: He'll likely get another pain injection before the game, but he's going to play. Romo has already thrown 91 passes in the first two games.
9/9/2013 2:02:00 PM
Description: X-rays on Tony Romo's ribs came back negative and he should be fine to make his next start Sunday against the Chiefs.
Insight: This injury seems pretty minor and we wouldn't worry about it limiting Romo next week at Kansas City. He finished with 263 passing yards Sunday in a win against the Giants.
9/9/2013 9:20:00 AM
Description: Cowboys QB Tony Romo took a shot to the ribs in the second quarter last night, but missed just one snap.
Insight: Romo finished the night 36-of-49 for 263 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT. He had trouble finding Dez Bryant all night due to the double-team, but did just enough for his team to pull out the victory.
8/3/2013 12:13:00 PM
Description: Cowboys QB Tony Romo does not expect to play in Sunday's first exhibition game at Canton.
Insight: This should have no effect on his fantasy value. He'll be ready for the regular season. Romo finished third in the NFL last season with a career-high 4,903 yards and has thrown at least 26 touchdown passes over his last five healthy seasons. Fantasy owners would like a reduction in interceptions (19 last season including three games of three or more).
5/21/2013 2:09:00 PM
Description: Cowboys QB Tony Romo will miss OTAs after having a cyst removed from his back last month.

Fantasy owners would like a reduction in interceptions (19 last season including three games of three or more).
3/29/2013 9:06:00 PM
Description: The Cowboys inked QB Tony Romo to a six-year, $108 million contract extension through 2019. The deal includes $55 million in guaranteed money.
Insight: Romo finished third in the NFL last season with a career-high 4,903 yards and has thrown at least 26 touchdown passes over his last five healthy seasons. The continued development of Dez Bryant should help Romo remain a top-10 fantasy signal-caller for the next few years.
1/2/2013 5:33:00 PM
Description: Cowboys QB Tony Romo may have cost the Cowboys a playoff spot with his three interceptions Sunday but he still finished the season with a career-high 4,903 passing yards.
Insight: That was good enough for third in the NFL. While Romo turned the ball over a career-high 22 times (19 picks, three fumbles), he also had 28 touchdown passes. He placed eighth among quarterbacks in standard scoring leagues after being drafted 10th at the position by fantasy owners.
12/31/2012 1:31:00 PM
Description: Cowboys QB Tony Romo probably didn't sleep too well on Sunday night. His interception with three minutes to go in the fourth quarter set up a Redskins touchdown and may have cost Dallas the game.
Insight: This isn't the first time we've seen Romo fold under pressure. The Dallas quarterback is now 1-6 all-time in elimination games. He finished the night with two touchdowns, three interceptions and 218 yards passing as the Cowboys ended the year 8-8 for the second straight season.
12/9/2012 5:00:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo completed 25-of-43 for 268 yards but only had one touchdown. He was picked off once and sacked three times.
Insight: Romo was coming off two straight three-touchdown games. This wasn't what fantasy owners were looking for in the first week of the fantasy playoffs. Romo's matchup with Pittsburgh in Week 15 looks brutal on paper but Philip Rivers was able to navigate the Steelers defense Sunday.
12/3/2012 9:51:00 AM
Description: Dallas QB Tony Romo had his best game of the season Sunday against Philadelphia. He completed 81.5 percent of his passes for three touchdowns and a 150.5 quarterback rating.
