Fantasy Football 2012 Rankings: Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo
Expectations will be high once again for Tony Romo heading into the fantasy football 2012 season as the quarterback looks to help the Dallas Cowboys return to the playoffs for the first time since the 2009 season. Romo has received plenty of criticism over the years for some of the decisions he’s made at quarterback, but from a statistics standpoint–fantasy owners should be excited about what Romo could bring to the table in 2012.
Romo is coming off a 2012 season in which he threw for 4,184 yards and 31 touchdowns, but it was the low number of interceptions (10) thrown that may have been the most impressive statistic of all considering he threw seven interceptions in six games the year before. Dallas is loaded with plenty of talent in the passing game with Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, and Jason Witten–so there’s no reason why Romo shouldn’t post big numbers as long as he stays healthy.
There’s no question Romo should be considered a top option at quarterback for just about all fantasy leagues and will most likely be a mid-round pick at the earliest. There was only five games last year (including one against the Philadelphia Eagles where he was quickly benched to rest up for a key Week 17 matchup against the New York Giants) in which Romo threw for less than two touchdowns in a game–which is always good from a fantasy perspective.
Even if the Cowboys fail to reach the playoffs, fantasy owners should be able to rely on Romo to post decent numbers on a regular basis.
