Fantasy Football season is officially in full swing. And there are a number of big name Dallas Cowboys players who should be on every team manager’s radar. We all know fantasy studs like wideout Dez Bryant, tight end Jason Witten and quarterback Tony Romo. But who are some Cowboys flying just under the radar that you should pick up via free agency or in the later rounds of your fantasy draft? Here are my three Cowboy fantasy sleepers:
Lance Dunbar, Running Back
As the primary back-up for often-injured DeMarco Murray, Lance Dunbar is a “must” own as a handcuff for all Murray owners. The 5’8 undrafted free agent from North Texas has all the qualities you’d want in a change-of-pace back. He’s quick, shifty and has good hands. As Dunbar showed in the preseason, his speed allows him to take a five yard pass and turn it into a 50 yard gain. That could be good Flex numbers in a pinch. And if Murray is again sidelined for the third year in a row, Dunbar becomes an instant RB2 option, especially in PPR leagues. There’s good value in grabbing Dunbar this season.
