Will Romo injury affect Ezekiel Elliott’s fantasy football production?

Tony Romo is injured again, and Dallas fans have to feel sick. Some are hyping Dak Prescott as an interesting replacement, but I’m not buying that hype.

Meanwhile, Ezekiel Elliott looked amazing in the preseason game against Seattle, including a punishing play when he ran over Kam Chancellor. Elliott flashed all the skills he showed at Ohio State where he led the Buckeyes to a National Championship, and he naturally has fantasy football fans drooling.

But you have to wonder how much the Romo injury will affect his production. He has an amazing line in front of him, but defenses will be stacking the box and daring Prescott to beat them with his arm. This will be interesting to watch.

Urban Meyer – 1; Jim Harbaugh – 0

There was plenty of hype leading up to this game, and frankly it was justified. While Michigan has been a miserable mess against Ohio State since Jim Tressel arrived at the beginning of this millennium, things were poised to become more interesting with the arrival of Jim Harbaugh.

Ohio State is the reigning national champ, and Urban Meyer is now the king of the hill in Columbus, but Harbaugh gave Michigan fans hope.

Many thought it might take a couple of years for Harbaugh to compete with the Buckeyes, but as this season progressed, attitudes started to change. The Buckeyes were sleepwalking through their schedule, while Michigan rolled off three straight shutouts. Suddenly, many of the talking heads started calling Michigan the best team in the Big Ten.

Then Michigan State spoiled some of the hype. They miraculously beat Michigan on a wild final play, and then stunned Ohio State last weekend with some serious defense and an assist from Ohio State’s coaching staff.

Still, this was shaping up to be an epic battle that would kick off a new phase in the iconic rivalry. Would we have another ten-year war reminiscent of Woody and Bo?
