    can change in an instant. After Cliff Avril put a hit on , and fantasy football owners were not in a good place, emotionally. Then, when we see Tony Romo trying to get back in the game, and the team downplaying the severity of the . We all took a collective sigh of relief.

    But on Saturday, at a little after 1 pm, news broke that Tony Romo had suffered a compression fracture at his first lumbar vertebrae.

    is also another big riser in my opinion. The Tampa Bay quarterback looked really impressive during the third preseason game. He showed good pocket awareness and poise when avoiding pressure and getting the ball downfield. I believe Winston is a top-10 quarterback in Fantasy football by the end of the season.
