Geoff Swaim (Tight End): Swaim has been the main target of Prescott during offseason practices however it has not really translated during preseason play. Swaim recorded eight receptions and gained 56 yards. He averaged seven yards per reception, and his longest catch went for 22 yards.

He never got into the end zone so realistically Swaim may not be a fantasy option. There is an off chance though, that he could help out Dak more than we all know.

Projection: 48 yards, 3 receptions

Dez Bryant (Wide Receiver): Cowboys star wide receiver Dez Bryant had an excellent showing during the preseason. He recorded four receptions for 74 yards and averaged 18.5 yards per catch. His longest reception went for 28 yards and got into the red zone twice.

That is pretty impressive for a player who barely saw the field during preseason. Dez and Dak have incredible chemistry and the rookie barely played with Bryant so the potential is enormous. Dez’s ADP (average draft position) still remains in the late first early second rounds.

Projection: 4 receptions,155 yards, two touchdowns (Dez is ready to flat out ball)

Terrance Williams (Wide Receiver): The Cowboys second wide receiver on the depth chart has had an excellent training camp. The main qualm with Williams seems to be his  level of consistency during the season. Williams managed to reel in three receptions for 55 yards, and managed to gain 18.3 yards per reception.

His longest catch from Prescott was a gain of 32 yards and he managed to get into the end zone. If Williams can move the chains and continue to make plays for this offense on a more consistent basis he will have finally gain some steady fantasy value, it looks like he is ready to make that jump.

Projection: 5 receptions, 72 yards
