Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo started slowly against the Rams, including throwing a "pick-six" in the second quarter, but led his team to 34 points from the middle of the second quarter to the end of the game.
Insight: His stats weren't great, but he probably didn't kill you with his 217-yard, two-touchdown, one-interception afternoon. The Cowboys host the Saints and Houston over the next two weekends and Romo has been a much better QB in "Jerry Jones' House."
 
9/16/2014 3:12:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was more of a "game manager" in Sunday's victory over the Titans.
Insight: He was efficient, completing 19 of 29 passes for 176 yards and a score. Romo is still shaking off some rust from missing most of camp, and should get back to being a valuable QB1.
 
9/8/2014 12:37:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw three interceptions in Week 1 against the 49ers. He finished 23-of-37 with 281 yards and one touchdown to go along witht the interceptions.
Insight: All three of the picks were forced into double and triple coverage and came in the first 20 minutes of the contest. It is clear now that Romo was rusty from not playing and taking the cautious approach in preseason, recovering from his second back surgery in 16 months. At least we hope it is just rust because if not, the Cowboys and Romo fantasy owners are in for a long, long season.

Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo went 10-for-18 with 87 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Dolphins.
Insight: Dallas only gained 110 yards in the first half with Romo under center. Most importantly, Romo seemed unaffected by three first half sacks. The quarterback is 14-of-23 for 167 yards and one touchdown this preseason.
 
8/16/2014 7:56:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo started Saturday's preseason game and had four completions on five attempts for 80 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Romo had back surgery in December, but he looked plenty healthy Saturday night. He completed three passes to Dez Bryant, including a 31-yard touchdown. With pass-happy offensive coordinator Scott Linehan in the fold, terrific weapons and a terrible defense, Romo is a steal at his current ninth-round ADP.
 
8/13/2014 4:27:00 PM
Description: According to the Associated Press, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will start Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens.
Insight: It will be Romo's first game since his back surgery in December. He sat out the preseason opener. With pass-happy former Lions OC Scott Linehan calling the plays, a healthy Romo will be a steal at his ninth-round ADP.
 
8/5/2014 9:49:00 PM
Description: According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said that Tony Romo has had problems throwing the deep ball since he returned to practice following back surgery.
Insight: Romo had back surgery in December and the team has insisted he's 100 percent recovered, but Wilson thinks Romo is not cutting it loose completely. "He can get the ball down the field," Wilson said. "That's not an issue. As camp goes on, he'll just get nothing but stronger and more confident in his throws." Romo will sit out Thursday's game before making his preseason debut on Aug. 16.

Description: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said quarterback Tony Romo is "100 percent," according to NFL.com.
Insight: Romo had December back surgery and didn't practice Tuesday, but Jones said the team is just being cautious. Romo threw for 3,828 yards and 31 touchdowns against just 10 interceptions over 15 games in 2014 and is a bargain at his eighth-round ADP.

Description: Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to be a full participant in training camp from the first day, according to a Dallas Morning News report by Jon Machota.

5/6/2014 5:53:00 PM
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.

Description: Dallas quarterback Tony Romo has restructured his contract. SOURCE: ESPN Dallas
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.

Description: It's official: Tony Romo is out for the season after undergoing surgery on his back, according to DallasCowboys.com. Kyle Orton will start Sunday's game against the Eagles that will decide the NFC East.
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.

9/22/2013 5:55:00 PM
