Tony Romo" href="http://bleacherreport.com/tony-romo">Tony Romo is a criminally underrated quarterback who deserves consideration among fantasy football’s elite.

Despite throwing for 4,184 passing yards and 31 touchdowns last season, Romo falls near the bottom of the top ten signal-callers in most rankings. He is the 10th highest quarterback taken on Mock Draft Central with an average draft position of 83.25.

In Yahoo! rankings, Romo barely cracks the top ten in the ninth slot, and ESPN places him in the eighth position. While there are several premier quarterbacks, Romo deserves to battle Eli Manning for the sixth spot and provides more value than selecting Matthew Stafford or Cam Newton in the second round.

Owners who would rather grab a running back or wide receiver in the first couple rounds should target Romo as their starting quarterback. You can jump the gun by drafting Romo in the third or fourth round and still obtain him at a fair price.

Here is why the least respected elite quarterback in the NFL can lead your team to a championship this season.
