NEWS: Tony Romo has two fractured transverse processes and remains questionable for Week 9.

SMITTY: Despite the “two fractured transverse processes”, Tony Romo still has a shot to start Week 9 against the Cardinals. Still, most sources are predicting that he sits, so really it’s just a “shot” at this point. If Romo sits, something you will want to monitor our News Wire and Smart Alerts for, expect a bump down stat-wise for both Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams, and while DeMarco Murray’s workload will surely increase, his yards-per-rush certainly won’t, especially against that Cardinals’ rushing defense. Don’t get us wrong, Murray is always a must-start, as all it takes is one TD run by him to have a great day, but a more balanced attack (led by Romo) is just better for the rushing attack. Brandon Weeden will start against the Cards if Romo can’t go. Stay tuned. Looking for Week 9 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Tony Romo (back) will participate in practice Saturday.

SMITTY: He is still the definition of a game-time decision, so stay glued to our news wire and Smart Alerts heading into kickoff. Romo playing affects all Cowboy players from a fantasy perspective. Looking for Week 9 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Tony Romo questionable for Week 9 with back; RG3 on waivers in your league?

SMITTY: Tony Romo (back) is listed as questionable for Week 9 against AZ. After three missed practices, he is sounding more questionable to doubtful, but expect a game-time decision here. If he sits, downgrade Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams a bit, and while this could go either way with the rushing game, our take is AZ will just focus more on shutting down the run, and they already are one of the toughest teams to run against. A more balanced offense, so Romo playing, is better for Murray owners, but then again, all it takes is one monster TD run by Murray, so anything can happen. Stay tuned on Romo via our Smart Alerts, which we will send out Sunday morning. For now, though, Romo owners better start preparing to use someone else, like maybe a Robert Griffin III who might just be on your waiver wire? Looking for Week 9 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Week 8 Monday Night Inactives: Robert Griffin III, Aldrich Robinson

SMITTY: It’s sounding more and more likely that Robert Griffin III will try and return in Week 9, but much of that will depend upon how well Colt McCoy performs in this one. Expect to see a whole lot of Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray in this one. Terrance Williams is also a very strong fantasy WR3-play in this one. As for those Washington players, Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson are strong WR3 plays this week, and Jordan Reed remains a low-end TE1 for as long as he is on the field.

NEWS: Kendall Wright the best offensive player in TEN; his YPC about to jump in 2014?

According to ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky, Titans WR Kendall Wright “is the Titans’ best offensive player heading into his third season” and should see his “career yards per catch of 10.8 to jump under Ken Whisenhunt and Jason Michael.”

SMITTY: Kendall Wright just dropped 94 receptions for 1,079 yards and 2TDs, with an average of 11.5 YPC (10.8 is on his career). Those are fantastic numbers for a sophomore receiver that was handed awful quarterback play last year. While the health of Jake Locker is still a concern, Locker appears fully healthy at this point, and we might see Wright finally pull in some good touchdown production, possibly something in the 6-8TD range. Wide receivers usually breakout during their third season in the NFL, and even though Wright already had what I’d call a semi-breakout campaign as a sophomore, it appears that he did so under the radar, as his ADP is in the 8.03-8.09 range, which is next to receivers like Reggie Wayne, Terrance Williams, Hakeem Nicks and Dwayne Bowe. That’s a big-time steal, as the kid has fantasy WR2-type appeal. On a side note, Justin Hunter could have a nice second season as a Titan. Want 2014 full-season fantasy football cheat sheets?
