Cowboys Vs. Bills: Tony Romo Week 10 Fantasy Football Projection

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is a almost always must start for your fantasy football roster, and this week is no exception. According to numberFire, Romo is projected to have the fifth most fantasy points, however they do consider him a medium risk. 

The risk factor is due to wide receiver Miles Austin being out, because that takes away one of his top targets and Austin's replacement is Laurent Robinson. Robinson did connect with Romo by scoring a touchdown each of the past two weeks. 

There is a chance to Romo may not perform up to expectations:

Chances are you are starting him -- I only "hate" him as a top-10 play this week. But the Cowboys have been fairly conservative with Romo, as he's been averaging just 216 passing yards the past three weeks. No Miles Austin and the Bills are allowing opposing quarterbacks just 11 points a game on the road this season. As seen in "love," I expect Dallas to lean on DeMarco Murray and the run game, putting Romo just outside my top 10 this week.

However, the Bills are the eighth worst team in defending the pass, so all signs to point toward Romo having a big game at home against the Bills.
