11/20/2014 1:19:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo returned to practice Thursday after taking Wednesday off.
Insight: The week off was at the perfect time for Romo and his sore back and he will be a QB1 in Giants Stadium.
 
11/9/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo played very well in his return to action.
Insight: He was 20-of-27 for 246 yards and three touchdowns. Romo showed no ill-effects of the sore back, and will be a QB1 when Dallas comes out of their bye in Week 12.
 
11/9/2014 12:05:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) is active for Sunday's game against Jacksonville.
Insight: Though it might we wiser in the long-term to let Romo sit until after the Week 11 bye. Before the injury in the Washington game, Romo had thrown two or more touchdown passes in five consecutive games and he's thrown at least one in every game this season. The Cowboys may run the ball more than usual.
 
11/7/2014 9:39:00 AM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) practiced again on Friday and fantasy owners should expect him to give it a go on Sunday.
Insight: Though it might we wiser in the long-term to let Romo sit until after the Week 11 bye, we now expect him to suit up and play against Jacksonville. Before the injury in the Washington game, Romo had thrown two or more touchdown passes in five consecutive games and he's thrown at least one in every game this season.
 
11/6/2014 8:59:00 AM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) was on the practice field Thursday, according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: This is great news not only for Romo's owners, but for the rest of the offense as well, in particular DeMarco Murray. Just Romo's presence should open up running lanes for Murray. Though it might we wiser in the long-term to let Romo sit until after the Week 11 bye, we now expect him to suit up and play against Jacksonville.
 
11/5/2014 10:53:00 AM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) did not practice on Wednesday.
Insight: This was expected, as we should know more about Romo's status later in the week. Owners should consider him a game-time decision for now.
 
11/2/2014 9:38:00 AM
Description: NFL Network's Desmond Purnell is reporting Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) will not play Sunday against the Cardinals.
Insight: Brandon Weeden has been taking all the first-team reps this week, and will get his first start in a Cowboys' uniform. Weadon has plenty of weapons so he could be a viable fantasy option. Romo could return against Jacksonville, though that's a game they can probably win without him if needed.
 
11/1/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) will be part of Dallas' walkthrough on Saturday.
Insight: This will be done to see how Romo feels, but consider him extremely questionable for Sunday against Arizona. Brandon Weeden has been taking all the first-team reps this week, and will get his first start in a Cowboys' uniform, if Romo is unable to go.
 
10/31/2014 2:23:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has missed all three practices this week, but remains a game-time decision.
Insight: I wouldn't wait on this one. The Cowboys would be better off allowing Romo to get better and start Brandon Weeden. Weeden will have all his weapons and could be a low end fantasy asset.
 
10/29/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is calling quarterback Tony Romo a game-time decision according to ESPN's Ed Werner.
Insight: Werner also added Romo will sit out all practices this week and could miss some time, 1-to-2 games. That is enough for fantasy owners to want to pick up another quarterback, just in case, Brandon Weeden will start in place of Romo.
 
10/28/2014 4:32:00 PM
Description: Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tony Romo's back injury is not related to the back issue he had at the end of the 2013 season.
Insight: That is encouraging news, but the Cowboys are still waiting for the MRI results. Fantasy owners will collectively hold their breathe until then. We will have a much better idea of Romo's status for Week 9 in about a day or so.
 
10/27/2014 11:36:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo left Monday Night's game against the Redskins. UPDATE: Romo returned to the game for the last drive of the fourth quarter and overtime.
Insight: Washington sacked Romo for the fourth time early in the third quarter. Romo took the brunt of the hit in his back. The Dallas quarterback had surgery on his back in the offseason. Romo's status is unknown, and the Cowboys turn to Brandon Weeden.
 
10/20/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was efficient, throwing just 23 times, but racking up 279 yards and three touchdowns against one interception.
Insight: The 23 passing attempts ties for his low of the season. Romo has thrown for two or more touchdowns in five straight games and continues to be a solid fantasy option.
 
10/13/2014 11:48:00 AM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo took a big hit in the first quarter and may have a rib problem moving forward.
Insight: Romo didn't miss a play, but we will see how he feels in the morning. He went 21-of-32 for 250 yards and two tochdowns as the Cowboys upset the Seahawks in Seattle.
 
9/29/2014 11:04:00 AM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo played in a beautifully balanced offense and produced solid fantasy totals.
Insight: Romo only passed the ball 29 times, but completed 22, for 262 yards and three scores.
 
9/22/2014 9:56:00 AM
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.
 
8/23/2014 9:03:00 PM
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.
