Most likely it only a nitrogen deficiency.  Try giving them some fertilizer.
If the yellowing continues then consider fungal disease.

I'm a big advocate of trying the simplest solution to a problem first.

A thought,  is there brown spots on those leaves?

Might be Early Blight  a fungal disease.

Best is to spray with Daconil


My tomatoes look sickly.  I have planted 3 Roma plants
and 3 Celebrity.  All the plants have tomatoes on them
but all the lower leaves (and some upper branches)
have turned yellow, then brown and died.  I'm pulling
the dead stems off and all the tomatoes look fine but
I'm wondering what's wrong.
