Cowboys | Gavin Escobar seeing more playing time

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 11:45:04 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar is moving closer to 50 percent of the offensive snaps as the team uses fewer three-wide receiver sets. Escobar had three catches for 65 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 7 win over the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar remains the No. 2 tight end on the roster behind Jason Witten, but you should take notice that the Cowboys are using him more often. He'll remain cheap at FantasyScore if you're looking for a deep sleeper.

Cowboys | Tony Romo shines again

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 20:17:06 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo was 17-for-23 for 279 yards and three touchdowns in the Week 7 win over the New York Giants, and two touchdowns went to TE Gavin Escobar. "I'd have to say that may be (the) best game I've ever seen Tony Romo play," owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. "That was an outstanding game. He was pinpointing the ball, making the kind of plays and protecting the ball." Romo said his surgically repaired back felt fine during the game, and he needed a toradol shot before the game to help with his bruised ribs and sprained ankle.

Fantasy Tip: Romo's fine 2014 season continues, and he shouldn't slow much against the Washington Redskins in Week 8. Consider him a strong play once again in all fantasy football leagues.
