Tony Romo leads late drive for victory, fantasy owners smile

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys quarterback was having a mediocre fantasy day until his game-winning drive. We break down the fantasy implications.

Coming into the team's last drive Sunday, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had only 247 passing yards, one touchdown and one interception. And the team was losing, 23-20. Then Romo led the Cowboys on a 90-yard drive on all passes, ending in a 7-yard touchdown to wide receiver Dwayne Harris that gave the Cowboys a 27-23 victory.

In the end, Romo's 337 passing yards were his second-highest total of the season (behind only his huge, career day of 506-yards against the Denver Broncos a month ago). He had only two scores and an interception.

Fantasy impact: If these are the bad times for Romo, fantasy owners will be all right, with the quarterback still managing 19 fantasy points in standard scoring. Romo is the fourth-highest scoring quarterback in fantasy this season, behind Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, and Matthew Stafford.

The Cowboys face the New Orleans Saints next week before their Week 11 bye, then come out of it with three straight against the kind defenses of the New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, and Chicago Bears. There aren't many quarterbacks fantasy owners would prefer to Tony Romo for the next little while.
