Strength of Schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the QB position. The easiest rating is 1 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the most difficult rating is 10 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Romo looked decent last week, especially on his deep connection to Terrance Williams. We need to remember though, that his play came against one of the most QB friendly matchups of the season against Miami. The road clearly gets rougher this week as Dallas faces the undefeated Carolina defense. Expect Romo to face a lot more pressure, take more hits, and make more mistakes this week as the Panthers look to make Romo uncomfortable.
Despite finishing 12th in the fantasy signal-caller ranks last season, Romo was hardly a fantasy juggernaut. Pass-happy offensive coordinator Scott Linehan unexpectedly opted to utilize a run-heavy attack featuring NFL 2014 Offensive Player of the Year DeMarco Murray whenever possible. This meant less reliance on Romo most weeks, which explains his lowest number of attempts since 2010. With Murray gone, the Cowboys insist they will continue their run-first philosophy likely with a Darren McFadden/Joseph Randle-led backfield. If the injury-prone McFadden and the unproven Randle both flop, we'll see a lot of throwing from Romo. The 35-year-old gunslinger is still good enough to carry the Dallas offense with help from Dez Bryant, Jason Witten, Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams. While Romo could have some upside, his durability (back surgeries in 2013 and 2014) remains a worry.
