This is for the Cowboy fans who drafted based on their hearts during your fantasy drafts. I usually draft at least one Cowboy each year regardless, but this year was the exception. I was high on drafting Dez Bryant this year, but he was snatched up before I made my third pick. I should have been torn because my third pick ended up being Hakeem Nicks from the Giants. How could I? Well, I draft to win. If you’re not first, you’re last.

Take a look at your draft results. Did you draft a Cowboy too early, or do you think they will find the fantasy fairy and start producing? Which player above do you think will find that fairy dust and start producing like a top player???
These players below were based on average draft position before the season on Yahoo sports. This is the Nation speaking!!!!
Cowboys drafted before 5th round:
- T. Romo, M. Austin, D. Bryant and J. Witten
Players drafted after 5th round:
- R. Fitzpatrick, M. Stafford, F. Jackson, S. Johnson, W. Welker, J. Finley, B. Wells, S.Smith, R.Gronkowski, C.Newton, AJ Green, etc…
Nobody could have predicted some of these players over the 5th round to be top fantasy producers, but nobody predicted that any of the above Cowboys would be putting up these types of numbers. SNAP!!!
