Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo sat out the team's final preseason game on Wednesday night against the Miami Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo sat out the team's final preseason game on Wednesday night against the Miami Dolphins. Romo scorched the Rams in the Cowboys' third preseason game, and that was enough for Dallas' coaches to give him a rest. With all of the injuries the Cowboys have had this preseason, the team is playing it safe heading into the regular season.

Analysis: Tony Romo's fantasy value took a hit this preseason with two of his main weapons struggling with injuries. Miles Austin and Jason Witten have both been sidelined for the majority of the preseason, and Dez Bryant has struggled with a knee injury as well. Given the state of the Cowboys' offensive line, Romo was lucky to make it out of the preseason healthy.
