Tony Romo went 25-for-35 passing for 321 yards and a touchdown during the Cowboys' loss to the Falcons on Sunday night. We break down the fantasy implications.
Tony Romo went 25-for-35 passing for 321 yards and a touchdown in the Dallas Cowboys' loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night. Romo's lone touchdown came on a 21-yard pass to Kevin Ogletree in the fourth quarter.
Romo bounced back nicely from a four-interception performance in Week 8 against the New York Giants. He went over 300 yards passing for the fourth time in eight games played this season. Romo now has 10 touchdown passes to 13 interceptions on the year.
Fantasy Impact: Romo still hasn't had a truly great fantasy performance since the season opener, but fantasy owners have to be relieved to see the quarterback play a relatively mistake-free game for once. Of course, it still didn't get the Cowboys the win, but that's neither here nor there for fantasy purposes.
Romo has a potentially tricky matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles next week. He remains the same high-risk/high-reward fantasy option he has been since the beginning of the season. Start with caution.
