Fri, 23 Sep 2016 20:29:02 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) has begun throwing, and his recovery from a back injury is going well, executive vice president Stephen Jones said Friday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is hoping to return around Week 8, and while he can be a viable QB2 once he returns, he can be left on the waiver wire in the meantime.

Cowboys | Dak Prescott staying as starter?

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 00:25:46 -0700

Prior to the first game of the season, suggestions were made that Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott could unseat QB Tony Romo (back) as the starter if Prescott played well enough. Sources indicate Romo's job could be up for grabs, much the same way New England Patriots QB Tom Brady took it from QB Drew Bledsoe in 2001.

Fantasy Tip: Prescott has to do well enough to unseat Romo first, as he completed 56 percent of his passes and threw no touchdowns or interceptions in a 20-19 loss to the New York Giants. Monitor the situation closely before pushing the panic button. At the least, pick up Prescott if you have Romo.

Cowboys | Tony Romo will have more tests

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 14:47:40 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will undergo more tests on his injured back this week. "We'll get some more information here over the next 48 hours and make a determination as to what his status will be going forward," head coach Jason Garrett said. Romo is currently on the Cowboys' 53-man roster as Dallas expects him to return at some point this season.

Fantasy Tip: Romo will be out a while, so he won't be a fantasy factor for the foreseeable future. Dak Prescott will start in his place and should be given a good look as a starter in good matchups until Romo returns. Looking at the season as a whole, though, neither Romo nor Prescott should be viewed as a QB1.

Cowboys | Tony Romo to stay on active roster

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 20:50:16 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will remain on the active roster in the hope he can return sooner rather than later from the compression fracture in his back.

Fantasy Tip: Although Dallas is taking an optimistic approach with Romo, fantasy owners don't need to do the same. He is still going to miss a chunk of time, and he can be left on waivers until later in the season.

Cowboys | Tony Romo expected to go on IR soon

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 15:48:53 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is expected to be placed on the Reserve/Injured list Sunday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Romo would miss at least the first eight weeks. Rookie Dak Prescott will attempt to keep the ship afloat in the meantime and is worth a low-end QB2 investment in deeper leagues. Romo should be left on waivers for now but could be worth a waiver add in early to mid-October if he heals quickly.

Cowboys | Tony Romo must fully heal

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 07:28:05 -0700

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo's (back) injury is different from the one he suffered in 2014 because the compression fracture to his L1 vetebrae must fully heal before he will be allowed to play, according to a source. His timetable is around eight to 10 weeks, and short-term Injured Reserve is a distinct possibility.

Fantasy Tip: The writing appears to be on the wall for Romo, who has been oft-injured in recent years. Dak Prescott has been the preseason buzz, but he is still a rookie quarterback with questions. He's a midrange QB2 in fantasy. Romo isn't worth drafting at this point, but he could be worth an in-season waiver claim.

Cowboys | Tony Romo likely to miss more time

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 19:26:28 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will be on the 53-man roster this weekend, but it doesn't necessarily mean he'll be on the roster for Week 1. Team officials continue to decide whether to place him on the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list meaning the earliest he could return is Nov. 6. "We're certainly getting our hands around it," executive vice president Stephen Jones said Wednesday, Aug. 31. "We need to make that decision obviously sometime later in the weekend." Romo is set to have another MRI this weekend, nine to 10 days after his initial injury. He was originally expected to miss six to 10 weeks, but now the window is more of an eight to 10 weeks timeframe.

Fantasy Tip: One thing is certain with this injury, Romo is not someone to consider drafting in any fantasy league unless you have deep rosters or several injured spots available. Even then, it only makes sense in formats which require two starting signal callers.

Cowboys | Tony Romo to wear back brace

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 08:57:54 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will be wearing a back brace during his recovery from the compression fracture in his vertebra. Head coach Jason Garrett is not giving a timetable for Romo's return.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is not expected to return to the lineup until at least midseason, so owners should monitor his progress over the next few weeks. Owners could consider selecting Romo in the late rounds of drafts and stashing him on their bench, but he probably will go undrafted in many leagues. Dak Prescott should be the starting quarterback for the Cowboys for the time being and can be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Cowboys | Tony Romo likely out until midseason

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 14:40:41 -0700

Updating a previous story, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is expected to miss six to 10 weeks with a compression fracture of his L1 vertebra in his back. Per sources, Romo is not expected to need surgery. Head coach Jason Garrett refused to rule him out for the team's season opener against the New York Giants on Sept. 11 and did not confirm whether or not this injury is related to the transverse process injury the oft-injured quarterback suffered in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys drafted Ezekiel Elliott with an eye on keeping Romo upright, and he'll be asked to carry even more of the offense on his shoulders now because Dallas will turn to fellow rookie Dak Prescott, who has been one of the most pleasant surprises of the preseason. Romo should go undrafted in virtually all leagues that don't have an IR spot, while Prescott can be drafted as a high-upside (but low-end) QB2. Elliott should be the offensive focus even more now than he was expected to be and is a high-end RB1.

Cowboys | Tony Romo may need epidural

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 12:13:25 -0700

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will likely need an epidural in order to play this season. The broken bone in his back is an injury that may linger.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is easily in backup fantasy quarterback territory with the injury, and he may even be considered undraftable. Dak Prescott has looked like a natural in the preseason and will be thrown to the wolves immediately. He's not in QB1 territory, but he's not the worst backup and should be claimed off waivers this week, especially by those who drafted Romo.

Cowboys | Tony Romo has broken bone in back

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 11:49:15 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) suffered a fractured vertebra in his back against the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Aug. 25. He is expected to miss six to 10 weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Here we go again. Romo is no stranger to back issues, and he couldn't make it out of the preseason before encountering another one. Dak Prescott will likely take over the reins at quarterback. He has impressed so far this season and seems capable of starting even as a rookie. He's not a starting caliber fantasy quarterback, but he can be worth a start in a good matchup and should be a cheaper option in daily contests.

Cowboys | Tony Romo may need MRI

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 10:36:20 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Romo (back) could have an MRI on his back, and a decision is expected Friday, Aug. 26. The injury appears minor for now.

Fantasy Tip: This is an example of how big of a risk Romo is in fantasy football. He's a QB2 with minimal upside because of the injury danger.

Cowboys | Tony Romo out for game

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 19:59:59 -0700

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will not return against the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Aug. 25, due to a coach's decision. He left after three plays with a tight back.

Fantasy Tip: After an injury is scare, it is no surprise Dallas decided to hold Romo out. He could put up QB1 numbers if healthy, but drafting him as your starter is a recipe for disaster.

Cowboys | Tony Romo tweaks back

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 19:21:38 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) exited against the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Aug. 25, and was holding his back. He tried to return to the field, but he was called back by coaches.

Fantasy Tip: Although it sounds like Romo dodged a serious injury, it is a sobering reminder of how fragile he is at this stage in his career. He is a potential QB1 when healthy, but don't count on him being healthy all season.

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.

Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott learning from Tony Romo

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

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott said he been learning from QB Tony Romo, and Romo said he has been teaching Elliott all the "little intricate stuff."

Fantasy Tip: Elliott is set for a big role in Dallas' backfield, and he should be off the board no later than the second round.

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.

Cowboys | Tony Romo full go with throwing

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 10:10:41 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) said he has been throwing fully for a week and a half to two weeks in his rehabilitation, adding that the experience has been good.

Fantasy Tip: Romo still has plenty of time before the regular season, too, and he should be fully recovered by then. When he's healthy he can perform like a QB1, but the key is staying healthy. Draft him as a low-end QB1.

Cowboys | Tony Romo ready for full offseason

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 09:20:04 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) tweeted that he'll be ready for a full offseason after having surgery on his collarbone March 8. The Cowboys start their organized team activities at the end of May. Romo has broken his collarbone three times since 2010, and he's had three surgeries since 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Romo should be ready in plenty of time after his surgery in early March. A fully healthy Romo will go a long way in improving Dallas' offense, but can the 35-year-old injury-prone QB stay healthy for a full season? He hasn't played a full 16 games since 2012. Because of his injury concerns, Romo is more of a low-end QB1, but you may be better off playing it safe and saving him as a backup.

Cowboys | Tony Romo undergoes shoulder surgery

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 16:22:50 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) underwent successful shoulder surgery on Tuesday, March 8.

Fantasy Tip: After months of weighing his options, Romo had what was called a Mumford procedure, which reduces pain and discomfort where the clavicle meets the shoulder. The healing period is generally six to eight weeks and leaves him enough time to fully participate in organized team activities in May. Due to his proneness to injury, Romo should be considered a high-end QB2 in most leagues.

Cowboys | Tony Romo having surgery

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 11:40:58 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) is undergoing surgery on his fractured collarbone Tuesday, March 8. He is not expected to miss offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: The expected time frame for this particular surgery is six to eight weeks. Romo has dealt with more than his fair share of injuries of his career, particularly with his collarbone, but he's still a borderline starting fantasy quarterback when healthy.

Cowboys | Tony Romo to undergo Mumford procedure

Fri, 04 Mar 2016 15:01:53 -0800

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) will undergo a Mumford procedure on his left collarbone next week, according to a source. He had been deciding whether to have a plate put into his collarbone as late as last week. But after undergoing a CT scan Wednesday, March 2, he decided for a procedure in which the distal part of his clavicle will be shaved down to release pressure against his shoulder. A time frame for recovery is expected to be six to eight weeks, so he's expected to be able to take part in offseason workouts in May and June.

Fantasy Tip: With Romo expected to be fully healthy heading into the 2016 season, he'll be a low-end QB1 for fantasy owners. Because the injury risk is so high with the Cowboys gunslinger, make sure you have a capable backup if you're running with Romo as your starter.

Cowboys | Tony Romo set for surgery

Fri, 04 Mar 2016 08:31:27 -0800

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) will have surgery to insert a plate on his collarbone next week. Recovery time is expected to be six to eight weeks, and he'll be ready in advance of organized team activities May 26. Romo also considered a "Mumford procedure" that would shave bone from the clavicle.

Fantasy Tip: Romo will be a midrange QB1 that carries significant injury risk in fantasy next season.

Cowboys | Tony Romo expected to stay around

Sat, 27 Feb 2016 12:35:52 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) is expected to be the Cowboys' starting quarterback for the next four to five years, according to owner Jerry Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Jones' words could be a glimpse into the draft plan for Dallas, but Jones also said a final decision could come down to the final 10 seconds of their allotted selection time. Dallas has been projected to draft either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff, but Myles Jack has also been a popular projection. If they think Romo is fully recovered this offseason, they may wait on drafting a quarterback.

Cowboys | Tony Romo has not made final decision

Sat, 27 Feb 2016 08:15:57 -0800

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) has not made a final decision on having a plate inserted in his injured clavicle but is leaning toward having surgery. He is scheduled to undergo a CT scan to see how his clavicle is healing.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Romo likely will have surgery at some point in the near future, which likely will keep him out of most of the offseason workouts. Owners will need to keep an eye out to see Romo will be ready for training camp and the regular season. Romo should be a starting quarterback in all fantasy leagues as long as he is healthy.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) said he will have a plate inserted in his injured collarbone. Romo said he is not worried about the recovery time.

Fantasy Tip: Romo probably will miss most of the offseason because of the surgery and his status for the start of training camp is uncertain at this point. Owners should keep an eye on the situation, but Romo probably should be a starting option in most fantasy leagues as long as he is healthy.

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 11:37:49 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo's heir apparent as starting quarterback is on the team's agenda at the NFL Draft, according to head coach Jason Garrett. "Certainly we want to have a young quarterback in our program who we're developing to be a guy who replaces Tony Romo at some point," Garrett told NFL Network. "Does that mean we take him in the first round, the second round or the third round? I don't know that. We've got to evaluate these guys and sort out who we like at all the positions."

Fantasy Tip: Romo still has the ability to be a midrange QB1, but after he has broken the same clavicle three times he has significant risk in fantasy.

Cowboys | Tony Romo leaning toward surgery

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 14:31:40 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) is leaning toward a Mumford procedure on his left clavicle rather than attaching a plate over the healing collarbone, according to a source. With the Mumford procedure a portion of the distal clavicle is shaved off or removed. Romo hasn't made a final decision, however, for the surgery he will undergo in March. He will continue to gather facts and evaluate each procedure that he has discussed with doctors. Both procedures have a six- to eight-week recovery period.

Fantasy Tip: Romo should be ready for the start of the regular season no matter which route he chooses, although injuries, specifically collarbone injuries, have been too big of an issue for him in recent years. Drafting Romo as a QB1 is a risk, but he could reach that status if he stays healthy.

Cowboys | Dallas could wait on quarterback

Mon, 15 Feb 2016 11:43:00 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to have added help behind him next season, but the Cowboys probably won't draft a quarterback with their No. 4 overall pick, according to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com.

Fantasy Tip: Carson Wentz has been a rumored candidate for the Cowboys with that pick, but it makes sense for Dallas to wait on a quarterback since Tony Romo should ideally still be starting for a few more years. Assuming Romo is at full health, he's a QB1 for the 2016 season.

Cowboys | Tony Romo willing to help

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 13:35:39 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo said he learned a lot when he was a backup quarterback and he is willing to help another quarterback learn if the Cowboys sign a free-agent quarterback or take a quarterback in the draft.

Fantasy Tip: There will always be a sense of competition at the professional level, but Romo already knows he'll start as long as he's healthy enough to do so. The backup quarterback may carry a little more importance for the Cowboys than with other teams considering Romo's injury history. At full health, though, Romo is a QB1.
