Tony Romo Injury Hurts Ezekiel Elliot and Dez in Fantasy

The Cowboys announced on Saturday that Tony Romo has a broken bone in his back. This injury will likely sideline him for 6-10 weeks. This is why I never schedule my league drafts until after the 3rd week of the preseason. So for many of you who drafted Cowboys on your team I am terribly sorry. In the future make sure you wait till after week 3 of the preseason. For those of you who have Tony Romo drop him immediately in all leagues and find a replacement. 

So how does this affect all other Cowboys? Well Ezekiel Elliot is being drafted 6th overall in ESPN standard league drafts which is too high right now. His teammate Dez Bryant is being drafted 10th overall and they both need to drop significantly. However do not panic and trade Dez Bryant if you own him. Dez is still an elite receiver and I imagine that Dak Prescott can still get the ball close enough for him to snatch it. If you have a Dez owner in your league who is freaking out then I highly recommend that you buy low on Dez while you can.
