Tony Romo Fantasy: Massive First Half, But Merely Solid Overall Numbers

It's hard to imagine how Tony Romo could have been any better than he was in the first half against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. But Romo was so good that he barely needed to throw the ball in the second half, meaning his three first-half touchdown passes ended up being his only big fantasy contributions of the day. Romo ended up going 23 of 26 for 270 yards.

Those clearly aren't bad numbers, and anyone should be happy to take them, but it is a reminder that a team can almost be too good when it comes to fantasy points.

Through eight games, Romo has 2,238 passing yards, 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He is on pace for more than 4,400 passing yards and 26 touchdowns. Fake Teams has Romo ranked 11th on their quarterback list this week.
