Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the QB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Don’t let all the media scrutiny over Romo’s 1-3 lifetime playoff record, 1-6 lifetime record in elimination games and his six-year, $108 million contract extension cloud your judgment. The Cowboys triggerman is a rock-solid fantasy quarterback. Last season, Dez Bryant finally emerged, which helped Romo finish third in the NFL with 4,903 passing yards, which was a new career-high and franchise record. And only five quarterbacks topped Romo’s 28 scoring strikes. On the season, he averaged an impressive 306 passing yards and 1.8 touchdown tosses per contest. Romo has a gunslinger mentality and loves to throw the deep ball, but the 11th-year pro tortures his fantasy owners with an occasional turnover-filled clunker outing. The rest of Romo’s solid supporting cast – Jason Witten, Miles Austin and pass-catching back DeMarco Murray – is back. However, Dallas’ offensive line, which could feature up to three new starters, is a concern. Since the 33-year-old Romo takes a lot of sacks and hits, there are worries about his durability. Assuming he stays upright, Romo should finish as a top-11 fantasy passer for the sixth time in the last seven years.
