Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/24/17 1:53pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo believes the Houston Texans and retirement are his options next season if he is released by the Cowboys, according to sources. The Denver Broncos are not pursing Romo, but they are not ruling out the possibility of signing him.
Huddle Up: Romo is still part of the Cowboys at this point, but he likely will be released at some point this offseason. He would be the starting quarterback if he joins the Texans and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2017 if he plays for Houston.
Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 3/23/17 6:08pm ET
Free-agent QB Mark Sanchez (Cowboys) is finalizing a deal with the Chicago Bears Thursday, March 23, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Sanchez will serve as the backup to the unproven Mike Glennon, so it is possible Sanchez makes some starts. Even in that scenario, he wouldn't hold any fantasy value.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 3/18/17 7:58pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been advised by his representatives that he won't be punished under the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy as it relates to an incident last July, according to beat writer Clarence Hill.
Huddle Up: The league's investigation hasn't officially been closed, so a punishment of some sort could still be handed down. That being said, he should still be one of the first players off the board in all formats in 2017.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/13/17 12:31pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has not been discussed by the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Vance Joseph. General manager John Elway and Joseph have both emphasized that they are comfortable with QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch as their quarterbacks.
Huddle Up: The Broncos do, or did, make sense for Romo, but it also makes sense to stick with what they have in Siemian and Lynch. Siemian figures to begin offseason activities as the starter, but Lynch won't be the backup without a fight. That being said, neither is a starting fantasy quarterback as of now.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/11/17 6:54pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is not expected to be traded, according to league sources, and Dallas is not willing to trade Romo somewhere he doesn't want to play.
Huddle Up: Romo is likely to be released if a trade isn't worked out, so he could still end up starting for another team in 2017.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/10/17 6:39pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is not guaranteed to be pursued by the Denver Broncos, even if Romo becomes a free agent.
Huddle Up: Romo's fate remains up in the air, but he is still expected to be the starter somewhere in 2017. He is injury prone, but he has QB1 upside. Grab him as a fantasy backup if you have a stable QB1.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/9/17 11:12am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to be traded to the Denver Broncos or Houston Texans, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Romo was expected to be released, but a trade would obviously be more beneficial to the Cowboys. The Broncos and Texans are the main suitors. Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler are not starting caliber fantasy quarterbacks anyway. Romo, on the other hand, can achieve QB1 status when he is on the field. The key is for him to be on the field.
Brice Butler - WRPosted 3/8/17 10:21am ET
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Brice Butler will sign a one-year contract to return to Dallas once free agency officially opens, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Butler carved out a niche role in the offense as a vertical weapon and red zone threat. He played well when Dez Bryant was injured. Butler is a late-round flier if Terrance Williams does not return in free agency.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/8/17 11:07am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will be released Thursday, March 9, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Romo is expected to receive interest from multiple teams including the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans. He should be a starter no matter where he signs and has a chance to be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is healthy.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/6/17 3:06pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will receive interest from the Denver Broncos if he is released this offseason, according to sources. One source said Denver is Romo's preferred choice if he is cut.
Huddle Up: Romo likely will receive interest from multiple teams, but the Broncos could give him a chance to make the playoffs in 2017. He would have a solid receiver tandem to work with in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders but would have to stay healthy. Romo could be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he signs with the Broncos.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 3/5/17 5:50pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott's work ethic is Peyton Manning-like, according to owner Jerry Jones, and Jones said he expects 'dramatic improvement' from Prescott in 2017.
Huddle Up: Even if he just repeats the numbers from his rookie campaign, Prescott will be in the QB1 mix in 2017.
Terrance Williams - WRPosted 3/5/17 7:47pm ET
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Terrance Williams is expected to land a deal worth $6-$8 million per year, according to multiple NFL sources.
Huddle Up: Williams was never able to become a consistent weapon in Dallas, and unless he lands with a team desperate for receivers, he is likely to remain a unreliable fantasy option.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/5/17 11:20pm ET
The Denver Broncos may be operating with two budgets in mind in case they have a chance to sign Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, if and when he hits free agency.
Huddle Up: Mike Klis observes the Broncos need more help on the offensive and defensive lines, but a second budget exists in case the Broncos end up with Romo. If he becomes a Bronco, he instantly turns into Denver's top QB and a decent mid-range QB1 option on most draft boards.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/4/17 1:31pm ET
Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said he has not ruled out the possibility of keeping QB Tony Romo on the roster.
Huddle Up: Most people believe that Romo will be released at some point, but the Cowboys have not made a decision at this point. Romo likely would find a starting job if he hits the free-agent market. He could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on his team and if he can stay healthy.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/4/17 6:57pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will abide by the 'do-right rule' if released and won't sign with the Washington Redskins, according to owner Jerrry Jones. 'It is implied that we will work in the best way we can for the mutual interest of Tony and the Cowboys,' Jones said.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys can't actually forbid Romo from signing with Washington if released, but don't expect him to end up there. If Romo does go elsewhere, he could produce QB1 numbers if he can manage to stay healthy.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/3/17 10:15am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo appears the most interested in joining the Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs or Denver Broncos should he get released, but CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora is reporting the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers are 'doing work' on the veteran quarterback and could emerge as viable candidates for his services.
Huddle Up: The Texans and Broncos still seem to make the most sense of all the aforementioned teams, as the Chiefs appear comfortable with Alex Smith for at least another year, while the Rams and 49ers are at least a year away from competing for a title, which is a big deal for an aging, injury-prone quarterback like Romo. If he lands in Houston or Denver, Romo should be a serviceable fantasy QB2.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/3/17 12:18pm ET
Updating a previous report, the Los Angeles Rams will not 'test the waters' on Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo should he become available, according to team sources.
Huddle Up: La Canfora reported earlier Friday that the Rams and San Francisco 49ers were two teams who could emerge as suitors for Romo. The Rams were never a realistic option, as Los Angeles isn't going to bring in a veteran to block 2016 No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff from developing. The Houston Texans and Denver Broncos are still Romo's most likely landing spots.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/3/17 6:27pm ET
The Houston Texans are regarded as a strong contender to land Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, according to several sources around the NFL.
Huddle Up: Romo would be an obvious upgrade over Brock Osweiler for Houston, and if he could manage to stay healthy, QB1 production wouldn't be out of the question.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 3/2/17 12:01pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott received 354 touches last season, but head coach Jason Garrett isn't worried about his star running back's workload. 'He certainly handled the opportunities we gave him really well,' Garrett said. 'We thought he got better and better as the game went on and really as the year went on as well. I thought he handled [his workload] really well.'
Huddle Up: Elliott was the best running back in football last year, at least from a yardage standpoint. There's no reason why he shouldn't see the same kind of workload he did in his rookie year. After nearly 2,000 total yards and 16 total touchdowns, Elliott deserves to be one of the first three to five players taken in 2017 fantasy drafts.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 3/2/17 1:33pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott was just six yards shy of gaining 2,000 yards from scrimmage last season, coming in at 1,994 total yards. In NFL history, only former Los Angeles Rams RB Eric Dickerson and former Indianapolis Colts RB Edgerrin James achieved at least 2,000 total yards in their rookie seasons.
Huddle Up: Elliott will be a first-round fantasy draft pick for many years to come as long as he stays healthy. His elite talent combined with the Cowboys' elite offensive line makes sweet music together. As was said earlier, Elliott should be one of the first three to five players taken off draft boards in 2017.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 2/28/17 3:39pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to be released this offseason. If he is released, the Denver Broncos are considered the frontrunners to sign the veteran quarterback, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Romo will certainly be an upgrade if he is signed by Denver, but the offensive line remains a significant question mark. Romo's injury history has been well documented and he may not be able to last a full season behind Denver's soft line. If the Broncos sign Romo and Romo is fully healthy, he'll be a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 candidate in fantasy drafts.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 2/28/17 4:59pm ET
The Dallas Cowboys are in no rush to talk to TE Jason Witten about a contract extension as he enters the final season of his five-year, $37 million deal, according to team executive vice president Stephen Jones.
Huddle Up: Witten said earlier this month he wasn't anticipating an extension and it shouldn't come as a surprise since he turns 35 in May. While he hasn't stretched the seam for years and incapable of creating big plays at this point of his career, Witten gives the Cowboys a reliable option who hasn't missed a game since his rookie season in 2003. In fantasy, he's a high-end TE2 with slightly more appeal in PPR leagues.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 2/26/17 10:40am ET
The Denver Broncos are expected to 'at least discuss' Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo if he is released, according to 9News Denver's Mike Klis.
Huddle Up: Denver has been widely speculated as a potential landing spot for Romo, so Klis isn't breaking news here. The Broncos have the playmakers and championship-ready team Romo desires, but their offensive line is a far cry from the Cowboys' front five, which would make him even more of an injury risk than he already is. If the veteran quarterback does eventually land in Denver, he would be a very serviceable QB2 for as long as he can stay healthy.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 2/26/17 4:35pm ET
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Saturday, Feb. 25, that no decision has been made on QB Tony Romo's status for 2017.
Huddle Up: Romo will likely be released or traded to free up cap space, and he should be able to find a starting job somewhere. Health is an obvious concern, but Romo is worth the gamble as a QB2.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 2/24/17 8:05pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott isn't going to suffer a sophomore slump, according to New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton, and Payton said Prescott plays with a calmness that should continue to benefit him.
Huddle Up: After his impressive rookie campaign, Prescott is already in the QB1 mix entering 2017.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 2/19/17 4:31pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is open to restructuring his contract in order to facilitate a trade to a contender.
Huddle Up: Romo can't be trusted as a fantasy starter, but if he lands in a quality offense, he is worth grabbing as a QB2 in 2017. If he can actually stay on the field, he can be a high-end fantasy backup or useful trade chip.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 2/16/17 8:50am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expecting to be released this offseason. He believes he can be a starter in the league for two or three more years.
Huddle Up: Romo has a lengthy injury history, and he's entering his age-37 season. He's someone to target as a backup if you land an elite QB in fantasy.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 2/5/17 10:06am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has already received strong interest from television networks that want him to work as a color analyst, but he has no intention of retiring in order to do so.
Huddle Up: Romo turns 37 in April and is coming off a significant back injury, but he was still able to give all interested parties a glimpse that he still has a little something left in the Cowboys' regular-season finale. The likelihood is that Dallas ends up releasing him as potential suitors won't be all that inclined to trade for an aging quarterback who may only have one year left with a fairly substantial contract. If he leaves Dallas, he will be a high-risk fantasy QB2 almost regardless of where he lands.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 2/4/17 6:57am ET
The Kansas City Chiefs are one team that could be interested in acquiring Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo this offseason, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team is reportedly looking to upgrade the quarterback position after losing in the second round of the playoffs for the second consecutive year.
Huddle Up: Incumbent starting QB Alex Smith would likely be released if Romo lands in Kansas City. Although he should still be capable of posting QB1 numbers in a favorable situation, Romo would be best served as a fantasy backup in most seasonal formats due to his injury history.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 2/4/17 1:12pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 854 yards and eight touchdowns at home this season and rushed for 777 yards and seven touchdowns on the road.
Huddle Up: Elliott had an outstanding rookie season and led the NFL in rushing yards with 1,631. He was also in the top five in carries and touchdowns. He will continue to be a main focus on offense for the Cowboys and should be a first-round pick in all leagues.
