Tony Romo has a lackluster fantasy performance against Chiefs

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Romo threw for 298 yards and a touchdown against Kansas City on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Tony Romo avoided interceptions on Sunday afternoon, but came away with only one touchdown in a 17-16 loss to the Chiefs in Kansas City. Romo played the entire game despite his rib injury against the Giants in Week 1, but his quiet second half cost fantasy owners that started him.

Fantasy impact: Romo's afternoon was a relatively quiet one. The game started off with a touchdown pass to Dez Bryant in the first quarter. The Cowboys only managed six points off of two field goals in the second half. As expected, the Chiefs caused problems for Romo and ended the game with four sacks on the quarterback. He'll face the St. Louis Rams in Week 3. The Rams will undoubtedly cause Romo some problems with their front four on defense, but he's still a low-end QB1 play for anyone that owns him. Just as it was in Week 1, a lot of quarterbacks are coming away with solid fantasy numbers in Week 2. Romo will likely be buried by high scoring quarterback play for the week.
