Tony Romo was excellent in 2014, but how much of that was down to DeMarco Murray’s presence in the backfield?

The Cowboys were a run-the-ball first team with Murray, who finished 2014 as the rushing champion with 1,845 yards on the ground with 13 touchdowns.

His dominance gave Romo favorable third down situations and it gave receivers more time and space to get open.

Despite finishing with a league-high 113.2 passer rating, Romo only finished 11th among fantasy quarterbacks. This was due to Murray taking the majority of the workload.

With Murray out of town and with the league’s best offensive line in front of him, Romo could be in line for more production on fantasy.

This is the question we don’t have the answer to, though. More work could spark more production for Romo, or it could revert him back to the turnover machine we saw in 2012.

Still, after an impressive 3,705 passing yards to go along with his 34 touchdowns and just nine picks last year, Romo will make a solid fantasy starter. He won’t be one of the elite, but he will do just fine for his fantasy owner.
