Hansen: Why Tony Romo is fantasy football’s ‘Rodney Dangerfield’

It’s about time Tony Romo gets some respect.

That’s the message John Hansen sent on his SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radioshow this weekend, when he called the Dallas Cowboys quarterback the “Rodney Dangerfield of fantasy football.”

“As usual, I’ve liked Romo every year,” Hansen said of his outlook for Romo in 2014. “Every single year, he’s been on our list of players to target, value-type guys, and he’s never really let us down. You can argue that last year was one of his better years.

“The dude is unbelievably consistent. It’s amazing how consistent he is,” Hansen added.

After reviewing Romo’s fantasy football numbers the past five years – if you listen below, you’ll see why the word “consistent” kept popping up when Hansen described Romo – the Fantasy Guru continued to explain additional reasons why Romo is one of his favorites.

“He’s fine, other than durability,” Hansen said, referring to Romo’s back procedures. “The system is fine. You know, [Cowboys offensive coordinator] Scott Linehan likes to throw the ball down the field. He likes balance, [but] he likes to throw it down the field. He’s got Dez Bryant, he’s got Jason Witten, I like Terrance Williams as a No. 2.”

Hansen also heaped praise on the Cowboys’ offensive line, calling it one the league’s three best units, and broke down why Dallas’ schedule is one of the most pass-friendly in the NFL.
