After the Dallas Cowboys were able to obtain victory in the desert on Monday night over the Arizona Cardinals, here are six players who stock is rising.
After suffering through one of the worst losses in recent memory, the Dallas Cowboys bounced back with a victory over the Arizona Cardinals Monday night. Coming off a disappointing 42-17 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week Two, Dallas was able to rebound in Arizona with a solid 28-17 victory over the Cards.
Following the big Week Three win in Arizona, here are six Cowboys players whose stock we believe is on the rise in Dallas.
#1 – DeMarcus Lawrence, Defensive End
When Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones publicly announced his team needed to find a War Daddy, a.k.a. a premier pass rusher, to add to his defense, little did he know they actually drafted one in 2014.
Cowboys’ fourth-year defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence has emerged to be that War Daddy Dallas has so desperately needed. Recording a whopping 6.5 sacks in three games, Lawrence is on pace to shatter his previous career-high, 8.0 sacks, which he led the team with in 2015.
Lawrence currently leads the NFL in sacks and is in the final year of his rookie contract. If this trend continues, DeMarcus will be in for a big payday come this offseason. Until then, he’ll continue to lead the defensive resurgence in Dallas that suddenly has an effective pass rush.
