In the Millionaire Maker fantasy football contest this week, you draft your lineup with a $50,000 virtual budget. All contestants are selecting from the same pool and all players can be used by all contestants. You can change your lineup all the way up until Sunday Kickoff. It takes less than one minute to sign up and about five minutes to draft your lineup.
In that lineup, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is a man that you may want to include in Week 5. Over the course of this article, I will highlight why that ludicrous idea could win you the million dollar prize.
The Houston Texans, on paper, may look like a tough matchup for Dallas. While the game could be close throughout, Romo should be able to have a good day. So far this season, the Houston defense has faced Robert Griffin III in his first week in a new offense, Derek Carr, and EJ Manuel. The team won all three of those contests.
In their one loss, the Texans went up against Eli Manning. While Eli is by no means a top tier quarterback, he is definitely a class or two ahead of the previously mentioned players. Romo will be the best signal-caller they have faced so far this year, so we will see the true colors of Houston’s defense in Week 5.
Murray Needs a Break
DeMarco Murray is on pace to carry the football 396 times this season, which would be 179 times more than his previous career-high. At some point, the 26-year-old will need a break. As he gets less carries, Romo will have to throw the ball a few more times per game.
I do not expect to see Murray getting 25+ touches again this week, so that means it will be Romo’s turn to make some plays. Even if they decide to go with the ground and pound again, Manning put up over 20 fantasy points against the Texans in Week 3, while throwing just 28 passes.
Most of the NFL’s top fantasy quarterbacks have a Draft Kings salary around eight-to-nine thousand dollars in Week 5. Tony Romo, on the other hand, barely cracks the top 15, with a salary of just $7,000. Taking him, and saving a grand or two in the process, will allow you to stack up at another position.
In his past two games, Romo has thrown five touchdown passes and just one interception. He completed nearly 80 percent of his passes in both affairs and will be entering Week 5 with a lot of confidence.
He threw 29 passes a week ago for 262 yards and three touchdowns. Expecting similar numbers this weekend would not be asking for too much. I would take just under 30 points from the 15th-ranked Draft Kings quarterback in a heartbeat.
