Matthew Berry, a Texan and die-hard Redskins fan, is one of the top fantasy football minds in the game and has been the main fantasy "expert" for ESPN for years now, football, baseball, you name it.
On his Tuesday podcast, Berry said he is of the belief that the Cowboys offense will take things to new heights in 2010. That's a bit of a bold claim, considering the preseason struggles the offense has seen so far through three exhibition games, scoring just one touchdown in the most recent game against the San Diego Chargers.
That touchdown was a short fade route from Tony Romo to Miles Austin, who will obviously be two of the key cogs in the Cowboys re-emergence offensively, should such a thing happen.
Another point he made was the health of Felix Jones and his effectiveness if healthy. A lot of prognosticators are predicting a breakout season for Jones, even though no one appears to know truly what his role will be. Will he or Marion Barber "start"? Or will the Cowboys not really have a "starting running back" and just go play-by-play and not even series-by-series?
Another comment from Berry that stood out was saying that Tom Brady's average draft position is in the teens, while Romo is being taken in the 30s of most ESPN drafts. He said Romo is likely an outright better pick than Brady from now on, and definitely a better value pick a full two rounds later than Brady. He then went on to say that he wouldn't be surprised if Romo takes the top spot among NFL fantasy QBs this season. If that happens, all of these concerns about the Cowboys offense will quickly be squashed.
