There has been a growing stigma around the play of Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo in recent fantasy football seasons. Some view him as a fantasy star, while others refuse to acknowledge the value he brings to the table. To help you see the difference, here are five reasons to grab Tony Romo in 2014 fantasy football drafts.
Romo has become a touchdown machine for fantasy owners. He has thrown 91 touchdowns over the past three seasons, including 31 touchdowns last year in 15 contests. Critics may love to harp on his untimely interceptions, but the fact that Romo averages two touchdowns per game certainly makes up for the occasional pick.
Dallas has an amazing assortment of wideouts, including Dez Bryant, Jason Witten, and Terrence Williams. These All-Pro receiving options will allow Romo to easily move the chains and will keep the veteran quarterback among the NFL passing leaders.
After years of finishing towards the bottom of the NFL in rushing, Dallas finally established a running game last season. Starting back, DeMarco Murray, ripped off a career-high 1,124 rushing yards with nine touchdowns. The emergence of the running game will only open up more passing lanes for Romo next season and give the quarterback more time to throw the ball downfield.
Romo has played in 15 or more games in four of the past five seasons. Despite suffering injuries each season, Romo continues to be in the lineup on Sunday afternoon. He is one of the toughest signal callers in fantasy and will do his best to be under center every week.
Romo can be drafted well after the first couple rounds during 2014 fantasy drafts and he has become a great starting quarterback to target after the elite options come off the board. Romo averaged 16.8 fantasy points per start in 2013, and while he doesn’t put up the numbers of Drew Brees, he can still be an extremely reliable fantasy quarterback.
