The Dallas Cowboys have arguably one of the most high-powered offenses in the NFL, so why are the players being drafted at bargain values?
The Dallas Cowboys may be the key to winning your fantasy football league this year. Whether you play for the “Shiva”, money, or bragging rights, fantasy football is becoming a mainstay in the NFL.
There are so many experts and mock drafts that it can be overwhelming going through position rankings. Any Cowboys fan that has glanced at a fantasy ranking list may feel disrespected as most of the Cowboys players have dropped down these lists.
All this means is you can grab your favorite players and still dominate your league.
Bryant had less than stellar numbers last season but a rookie QB and a few games missed due to injury could be the result of that. Following the Week 7 bye in 2016, Bryant had 10 touchdowns in 10 games played (including Green Bay playoff game).
Dez disappeared in two games during that stretch have one catch against the Browns and Giants. Excluding both games Bryant did not score less than 12 points in each of the other eight games.
Although Dez should be worthy of a first round pick he should be available in the second round in most leagues. Consider yourself to have two first round picks if you walk away with him in the second round.
Running Back Ezekiel Elliott is dropping fast on all draft boards. Currently ranked as the number 11 running back and the 23rd overall player.
The third round could be a safe place to find Elliott. With a possible suspension looming most Fantasy Footballers are afraid to draft Elliott too early.
Don’t be afraid to snag Zeke in the third round if you have the opportunity. The Dallas Cowboys may be prepared to take Elliott’s suspension to court if the suspension is upheld.
Looking back at Tom Brady‘s suspension on the “Deflate Gate”, Brady was able to push a suspension back to the following season. Meaning Elliott may not miss a single game this season.
Granted this scenario is not guaranteed Elliot will not miss more than six games and will be fully healthy to lead you in the playoffs. An August 29th appeal only helps fantasy owners that much more.
Quarterback Dak Prescott has not received any love from Fantasy experts. Prescott is currently ranked as the number 13 quarterback and 100th overall.
Prescott threw for over 3,600 yards and had 26 touchdowns, while only having 4 interceptions. He may not contend for the most touchdown passes in a season but he’s guaranteed not to burn you with a horrible game.
Prescott can be drafted at the bottom of the ninth round or early tenth round. This should give you plenty of time to fill your starting lineup and possibly a couple backups before addressing your quarterback spot.
The Dallas Cowboys have talent all over the offensive side of the ball and Fantasy experts are over looking each player. While everyone sticks to their “cheat sheets” you can draft in confidence and enjoy watching your Cowboys as they dominate the NFL and your Fantasy league.
