Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Michael Vick and Tom Brady will likely be snatched within the first rounds of fantasy drafts. While Tony Romo will be taken in the fifth or sixth round, if he can stay healthy, and of course keep his composure, there isn’t much sperating his ability with the aforementioned elite.
The Cowboys signal-caller had 36 touchdown passes in 2007, 26 scores in 2008 and 2009 and was on pace for 29 last season before breaking his collarbone. Romo has a lifetime 64.1 completion percentage and a 95.5 passer rating. He’s averaged 269.5 passing yards per game since ’07.
They’re all big, fast and powerful. Toss in Felix Jones and possibly Roy Williams and you have the makings of a very potent offense.
His last four games before getting injured in 2010 were all impressive and note-worthy.
Week 2: 374 yards, one TD
Week 3: 284 yards, two TDs
Week 5: 406 yards, three TDs
Week 6: 220 yards, three TDs
Drafting Romo is ideal because it allows you to address your running back and wide receiver slots before adding your quarterback. With minimal drop-off from the likes of Phillip Rivers, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, you put yourself in a good position to compete for a fantasy championship.
