Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the QB position.

The matchup is favorable but the sideshow that was the Redskins game suddenly casts doubt. Will Romo be able to play effectively with a new back injury? Did Washington blue print how to handle the Cowboys' offense? We haven't had this many questions surrounding Romo since Week 1.
Romo rocketed through the first half of 2013 as the fourth-most productive fantasy quarterback, but Dallas' puzzling road struggles and run-oriented game plans dragged down his passing numbers the rest of the way. Although the 34-year-old Romo missed the Cowboys' regular-season finale due to a herniated disc in his back, he still finished as the 11th-most productive fantasy passer, averaging a rock-solid 255.2 passing yards and 2.1 touchdown passes per contest. Romo's rehabilitation from off-season back surgery is on schedule, and he is expected to be ready for training camp. Despite his back issues, there is plenty of 2014 fantasy buzz surrounding Romo because of the arrival of new play-caller Scott Linehan. He loves to pass, and Romo has a gunslinger mentality. From 2011 through 2013, Matthew Stafford (Lions) averaged 4,885 passing yards and 30 touchdown passes per season with Linehan as his offensive coordinator. Like Stafford, Romo has a good receiver corps, which is led by the mega-talented Dez Bryant and Jason Witten. The promising Terrance Williams will replace the departed Miles Austin in the starting lineup, and Demarco Murray has developed into a very good receiver. Although Romo's improving offensive line yielded just 35 sacks last year, his durability obviously is a worry. Assuming Romo stays reasonably healthy, he should finish as a top-11 fantasy passer for the seventh time in the last eight years.
Ok, why on gods green earth would you take the ball out of your best players hands? Murray has been the focal point of your offfense getting at least 4 catches a game and running for about 100 yards, yet you put in fragile felix. WHY? HE ...
