Season Outlook

Cowboys fans have to be ecstatic about the upcoming season with the emergence of last season's offensive rookie of the year QB Dak Prescott and rookie rushing leader RB Ezekiel Elliott taking the NFL over by storm. Prescott beat out long-time Cowboys Tony Romo as the starting QB and ran with it, helping lead the Cowboys to a 13-3 record and NFC East Division championship. Though not among the leaders in fantasy points, Prescott has the accuracy and offensive weapons to be drafted as a QB1. Elliott, on the other hand, could go as high as the first overall pick in fantasy drafts this upcoming season. He's a force to be reckoned with when the balls in his hands, as he averaged 108.7 yards per game with 15 touchdowns and posted the most 20-plus yard runs with 14 - all leading the league. The Cowboys mauling offensive line was a big factor in Elliott's success as they ranked second in total rushing yards for with 2,396 yards, tying for first place in first downs with 54. There were no major coaching changes and feeding the ball to Elliott will be the first priority, while WR Dez Bryant and TE Jason Witten will be among Prescott's top options, and with good reason. Bryant and Witten are big targets and difficult to defend, both weighing over 220 lbs. Bryant has been riddled by injuries the past two seasons, missing 10 games over that span. Witten, on the other hand, hasn't missed a game since 2007 and has registered 9,050 yards. Though he only posted 673 receiving yards and just recently turned 36, the passing offense may fail to improve in its middling 23rd place finish, but fourth year offensive coordinator Scott Linehan won't be afraid to target his stars through the air and continue to deploy the option run game scheme that is nearly impossible to stop.

Player Outlooks & Draft Analysis

Quarterbacks

Dak Prescott Bust

Despite seeing downticks in completion percentage and passing yards last season, as well as a significant uptick in turnovers, Prescott essentially matched his touchdown numbers from his rookie season (28 total in 2017 and 29 total in 2016), and averaged nearly five more rushing yards per game. Despite massive differences in personnel and team success, the similar fantasy stats overall are probably in line with what we should expect again this season.

Running Backs

Ezekiel Elliott Injury Update

With Dez Bryant and Jason Witten gone, the cupboard is pretty bare in Dallas when it comes to offensive weapons. And with his off-the-field drama hopefully behind him, Dallas is going to feed Elliott the rock as much as possible. If the Cowboys can figure out how to incorporate him into the passing game more often, a certain possibility given the questions at receiver, Elliott could end the season as the top running back.
