Ever wonder how one player's injury could effect an entire team's fantasy value? Well here's a solid lesson for ya.
Tony Romo took a huge hit on Monday Night Football and was carted off the field, only to be diagnosed with a broken left clavicle.
While the initial timetable is the normal 4 to 6 week assumption, an injury like this could extend to 8 to 10, if not more according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Journeyman Jon Kitna will take over the throwing duties in Dallas.
Kitna's is not exactly of horrible replacement—it could be worse trust me—but you have to wonder about a 38 year old quaterback, who never could get beyond mediocrity.
Yes, this is a guy who had four seasons of over 3,000 yards, and two seasons of throwing over 4,000, but this is also a guy who historically throws as many interceptions as he does touchdowns.
Basically, with Kitna your rolling the dice every week from here on out, so you may want to turn to the waiver wire for your replacement.
Sam Bradford is the first QB who comes to mind that will probably still be available, but don't forget about Bills quaterback Ryan Fitzpatrick who is currently the owner of a 11:4 TD to INT ratio, and 969 passing yards in four games.
As for the Cowboys receivers, their fantasy stock took a small hit as there value is sure to drop a little until Kitna can prove us wrong.
