The Cowboys just announced that QB Tony Romo is expected to miss six to eight weeks, and that he will not undergo surgery. Meaning that he could be ready for the fantasy playoffs.
But are we talking playoffs right now? Many fantasy enthusiasts are just trying to win a game. (Forgive me if that was a touch hacky, but that still cracks me up.)
Whether you keep Romo or not, that is clearly up to you. But right now you have to live in the present and look at other options. The two best options being Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and Lions QB Matthew Stafford. As you may recall, I was a big Stafford guy at the beginning of the year, and hey, Shaun Hill was pretty good.
Fitzpatrick is the prize, though. As noted funnyman Nick Bakay pointed out, Fitzpatrick is a better option than Saints QB Drew Brees right now. As crazy as that may seem.
So be active on the wire, and good luck.
