Once a week leading up to the season I'll be posting fantasy projections for different positions. CBSSports.com is SB Nation's fantasy football partner and are sponsoring these posts. As a reminder, SB Nation has a deal with CBSSports.com offering their Fantasy Football Commisioner leagues at half-price. If you're interested in purchasing a league for the price of $90, make sure you do it through this link so BTB gets the credit. You get lots of cool features with the league.
This week's projection concern the QB position. According to the CBSSports.com projections, they see Tony Romo as the #6 QB with 28 TDs and 14 INTs. He comes in behind Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Matt Schaub and Tom Brady.
Jamey Eisenberg had this to say about Romo in 2010:
Romo threw for a career-high 4,483 yards last year with 26 touchdowns and a career-low nine interceptions. And this year, he could be even better.
The Cowboys gave Romo a new weapon this offseason with rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant, a first-round draft choice. Bryant will join an impressive receiving corps that features Miles Austin, Jason Witten, Roy E. Williams and Patrick Crayton.
Romo also has solid receivers out of the backfield in Marion Barber, Felix Jones and Tashard Choice, and he plays in an offense that will remain explosive. We consider Romo a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, and he could end up as a Top 5 player at his position.
The one downside to Romo is he has an inexperienced starter at left tackle after Flozell Adams was let go. Doug Free is the new left tackle if he can beat out Alex Barron, and he only has seven career starts. If Free can keep Romo from getting hit, Romo should shine -- and that's what we expect to happen.
So what do you think? Will Romo be a Top 5 QB this year?
Consider this an open thread to discuss Fantasy Football.
