A great outcome results in some players being left in the shadows. Which player is the victim of being the most underrated Dallas Cowboys’ player in 2019?
The Dallas Cowboys enjoyed a great season offensively. Unfortunately, they didn’t do much as an entire team, but one side of the ball excelled. There was a lot of praise for quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Michael Gallup stepping up.
That led to a player like Randall Cobb being left out of the conversation. He is out of the spotlight right now. He is the most underrated Dallas Cowboy in 2019.
As an entire team, Dallas was underwhelming. Offensively they were great. They were first in total yards per game and sixth in points per game.
Much of this can be credited to Prescott having a huge season almost topping 5,000 yards, but he did reach the 30 passing touchdowns mark. That along with running back Ezekiel Elliott having 1777 scrimmage yards and 14 total touchdowns.
After a promising season in 2018, Gallup took a big step up this season eclipsing 1,000 yards in just his second NFL season and caught six touchdowns. More than doubling his stats from his rookie season in two fewer games is very impressive.
As you can see, there are many stories that you have probably heard about throughout the season. I highly doubt you heard about how Randall Cobb played.
Now, Cobb didn’t have an All-Pro season, but he had a great season for the third and sometimes fourth option in the passing game. Having 828 yards and three receiving touchdowns is a solid season.
If Cobb was on the Atlanta Falcons, he would be only 28 yards shy of placing second on the team in receiving yards. Wide receiver Calvin Ridley had 866 yards on the team with the third-most passing yards.
The New Orleans Saints are seventh in the league for passing yards. If Cobb was on the Saints, he would place second on the team. He would be 123 yards ahead of tight end Jared Cook.
When you have too much of something good, the “worst of the best” aren’t appreciated as much. It’s bittersweet for Cobb and be deserves credit where credit is due.
If he was on another team, Randall Cobb would get that credit, but he has a couple other Dallas Cowboys ahead of him. So, he had a good, yet unrecognized season. That’s why Cobb is the most underrated Cowboy in 2019.
