2. Zack Moss, Indianapolis Colts

Another solid back who stepped in for his teams' original starter (Jonathan Taylor for half of the season) Zack Moss put together 794 rushing yards and five touchdowns on a career high 183 carries this season.

Moss is a superior receiving threat to Edwards. In 2023, Moss caught 27 passes for 192 yards and three touchdowns. The former third-round pick of the Bills, Moss is exceptional in the screen game specifically. This could benefit Dak Prescott, as the Cowboys' screen game has been non-existent in recent years.

Moss, 26, still has good years ahead of him and he showed just how explosive he could be. According to Spotrac, his market value going into 2024 stands at $4.5 million per year. He only made $1.5 million in 2023, so the Cowboys might be willing to honor a demand in the two-year, $5 million range.

It would be risky to have Moss as the RB1 in this offense, but 2023 proved he can be a serviceable backup with starting upside. He'd be an ideal change-of-pace back for whomever the Cowboys identify as their starting rusher.
