Projected Win Total

Cowboys’ over/under currently sits at 8.5, after they went 10-6 last season. A tougher schedule and the perception of overachieving last season is the reason their projected win total is lower. However, on paper, they have improved.

 

Strength of Schedule

SOS is measured by calculating the fantasy points allowed by each team’s opponents to determine who has the easiest and most difficult fantasy schedules (rank #1 has the easiest schedule).

QB: 20th
RB: 25th
WR: 6th
TE: 32nd

 

Passing Game

QB: Dak Prescott, Cooper Rush
WR: Amari Cooper, Allen Hurns
WR: Michael Gallup, Tavon Austin
WR: Randall Cobb, Noah Brown
TE: Jason Witten, Blake Jarwin

Dak Prescott enters the fantasy season as one of the more underrated quarterbacks, in terms of value. He is being drafted as QB18, despite finishing as QB6, QB11 and QB10 during his first three seasons, and he was QB4 after the Cowboys acquired Amari Cooper last season.

Cooper is the top receiver for Dallas, and he is being drafted as such, with a current ADP of WR12 in PPR. Cole Beasley leaves 87 targets, which Randall Cobb should fully take over. Cobb is currently being overlooked in drafts, with an ADP of WR66. The biggest news of the offseason for the Cowboys was Jason Witten coming out of retirement. He is being drafted as TE25, but he finished as TE9 in the last season he played with Dak.

 

Running Game

RB: Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard, Mike Weber
2018 OL Run Rank: 8th

It’s just Ezekiel Elliott and a couple of rookies. On his way to the rushing title last season, Elliott handled 69% of the carries, which we can expect him to do again. The Cowboys getting Travis Frederick back at center will also be a big boost for the entire offense, but especially Elliott. Zeke is currently being drafted as RB3. Fourth-round rookie Tony Pollard is expected to win the backup position, and he is currently going as RB69.
