Cowboys | Jason Witten holding out hope for Tony Romo

Thu, 26 Dec 2013 15:38:11 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten isn't ready to rule QB Tony Romo (back) out for Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles. "I wouldn't count him out until he's out," Witten said. "There's no question. That wouldn't surprise me, but I do think obviously this is different situation (it) seems like with the back and however that plays out. But you've got to prepare with Kyle (Orton) and go as if that's the case and then see how it plays out." Romo has not practiced so far this week.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys have stated that Romo probably won't need to practice in order to play in Week 17, but we think that's doubtful. You should already have planned to be without Romo this weekend. If he miraculously plays, deal with that decision later.

Cowboys | No practice for Tony Romo

Wed, 25 Dec 2013 17:28:39 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is expected to miss the Week 17 game due to a back injury which requires surgery, although head coach Jason Garrett has said the starter has not been ruled out yet. It seems like Garrett is playing possum with the opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles, and it is extremely unlikely Romo suits up.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) received an epidural in his back, which will take two or three days to take effect. However, he's still unlikely to play in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: This is an unusual move for someone that is slated to undergo season-ending surgery. It looks like they are trying to take every measure to keep him active. However, we find it hard to fathom he will play this week.

Mon, 23 Dec 2013 13:27:15 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) has been ruled out for the season because of his back injury.

Fantasy Tip: Kyle Orton will start at quarterback with Romo out. Orton could be a starting option for desperate owners but there are probably better options available. The Cowboys wide receivers and tight ends should be downgraded because of the change.

Cowboys | Jerry Jones supports Tony Romo

Tue, 17 Dec 2013 10:16:37 -0800

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones supports QB Tony Romo's decision making that led to the interceptions in the team's Week 15 game. "I was for the aggressiveness we showed ... and it can apply to many parts of the game," Jones said. "But in this particular case, aggressiveness was throwing the ball on our end of the field -- throwing the ball in there close. Aggressiveness with Romo can mean not throw the ball, but buy more time, which increases the chances of having a bad play."

Cowboys | Tony Romo threw often in Week 9

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 09:23:38 -0800

The Dallas Cowboys and QB Tony Romo threw the ball 52 times in their Week 9 win over the Minnesota Vikings and ran the ball just nine times. It's the first time Romo has won a game when he's thrown over 50 passes in a game since 2007.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys' offense remains uneven in terms of play calling. Perhaps they didn't want to overwork DeMarco Murray (knee) in his first game back.

Raiders | Terrelle Pryor making great strides

Wed, 09 Oct 2013 20:59:33 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor has posted a passer rating of 97.6, which ranks behind only Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan. His completion percentage of 68.3 trails only Manning, Rivers, Romo, Brees and Ryan, and he has a 72.7 completion percentage in the pocket, which is fourth-best in the NFL. "His mechanics have really improved," head coach Dennis Allen said Wednesday, Oct. 9. "He's got a good presence in the pocket, yet can get out and make plays. He's always been a great athlete, but he's getting better as a quarterback."

Fantasy Tip: Pryor has emerged as a low-end No. 1 fantasy option in most leagues of 12 or more teams. He has surprised more than any other fantasy quarterback to this point, as far as success. There are plenty who have surprised by being disappointing.

Cowboys | Tony Romo makes change in throwing motion

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 15:37:58 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo said he has made a change to his throwing motion this year that has made him more effective. "Well, I think I'm doing a couple of things different, a couple of things I worked on this offseason that have allowed certain things in different situations to be a little bit easier," Romo said when asked about the difference in his game from last year to this year. "I found something pretty important, I think, in the throwing motion that's allowed me to throw from a little bit different position. That's calmed certain things down. I think a lot of things go into play. We're getting good offensive line play. A lot of different things come into play with that stuff." He is fourth in the league with a passer rating of 105.0 and has gone 110-for-152 for 1,015 yards, eight touchdowns and one interception in four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is performing as a solid QB1 this season and has another fine matchup against the Denver Broncos this weekend. Continue to roll with him.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant has backer in Jerry Jones

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 10:47:04 -0700

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is confident that WR Dez Bryant is the best he's been at any point in his career this year, and he thinks he should be getting more balls thrown his way by QB Tony Romo. Romo has completed 72.4 percent of his passes this year, good for third highest in the league, but he hasn't taken many risks, including throwing to a double-covered Bryant. "The same kind of throw you throw to him in the end zone the other day that he made that catch," Jones said. "He can make that catch with two people on him. You throw him the ball when he's double-covered. He's been thrown to when he's double-covered. You can do that."
