The offense should be fairly concentrated with injuries/departures at wide receiver. Dak Prescott quietly finished as the QB #7 in 2021 and looks to circle around the top 5 again. Ceedee Lamb steps into the WR1 role for the Cowboys after finishing with 1,102 yards and 6 TDs in 2021. I don’t think anyone would be shocked to see him finish with double-digit touchdowns this year due to the loss of Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup ( injury ). Both RBs in the backfield look to be independently viable and could be unfadeable if one or the other gets hurt. Ezekiel Elliott finished as the RB #7 and Tony Pollard has been getting time both as a slot WR and third-down running back. The industry is hot and cold on Dalton Schultz, he is personally my favorite Cowboy at his ADP and positional scarcity. 


The defense looks to be in the top fourth of the league, which is not what we want in fantasy football. Shootouts and/or negative game scripts are KING! There is a silver lining here, as this defense led the league in 2021 and shows no signs of slowing down. Additional turnovers mean more offensive opportunities. 


The isn’t much ugly for the Cowboys this season ( which pains me to say as an Eagles fan ). However, if there is one thing I would raise concerns about, it would be this: we are talking about the Cowboys, who year after year are hot and cold. Dysfunctionality and underperforming tendencies seem to follow this team like a shadow in recent history.

Tony Pollard / Jalen Tolbert*Note: These guys are fliers (more so Tolbert) but can provide immense upside if literally anyone gets hurt.
