2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Dallas Cowboys
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

Expectations are always high in Dallas and this year will be no different. The team finished .500 last year and will be expected to do much better this coming season. They should contend for a playoff spot but probably don't have enough on defense to make a long run into the players. Their offense will be one of the best in the game as long as Tony Romo comes back strong from his back injury.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Receiver Terrance Williams has a good shot for a big season, moving into a starting role opposite Dez Bryant. Williams flashed some big-game potential last season and should be able to build on that his second season in the league. He'll start from day one and play in an offense that throws often. Plus, Jason Witten is another year older and nearing the end of the line, so Williams is a good bet to be the second best target in this offense going forward. Williams could be hit or miss for fantasy teams but will be capable of the big game any given week.
FANTASY DUD
Jason Witten seems to just keep chugging along but started to show some signs of slowing down last season. He had his lowest reception total since 2006 last season. He is 32 years old and been a very durable, dependably player throughout his career, so he has a lot of wear and tear on his body. Another dip in production this season could happen, making him a guy that probably won't live up to his draft position this year.

Team Notes

May 20, 12:43 PM The upcoming group of potential free-agent wide receivers includes four of the positions most dominant players, including Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green and Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, according to Spotrac.com. All four players are engaging in contract discussions on some level with their current teams.
May 18, 03:32 PM Dallas Cowboys FB Jed Collins was released Monday, May 18, and FB Tyler Clutts was re-signed to an undisclosed contract.

May 18, 01:12 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is participating in the strength and conditioning program, despite being at odds with the Cowboys regarding his current contract. 'I wanted to be here for my teammates,' Bryant said. 'In the past two years that locker room has changed. There is something special in there.' If Bryant isn't given a long-term deal, he may not practice with the team until late July when training camp begins.
May 17, 08:32 PM Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten said Sunday, May 17, that he and QB Tony Romo could play four or five more years if they continue to play like they did last season.

May 16, 07:32 PM Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle has the skills to lead the team's backfield in 2015 but he'll need to work on his off-field issues, according to Jon Machota of SportsDayDFW.com. Randle will need to prove to his coaches he can stay out of trouble and be relied on every week.

Fantasy Impact: If he can stay out of trouble, we think Randle will be the lead back for the Cowboys this year.
May 14, 07:52 PM Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones expressed confidence in the team's overall run game Thursday, May 14. "You say the entire running game, and that would be including our tight ends, including our fullback - the entire game - we're better," Jones said. The Cowboys have yet to determine roles for their running backs. As it stands, RB Darren McFadden is at the top of the depth chart, with RBs Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar and Ryan Williams in the mix.

May 13, 11:53 PM Dallas Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence will be counted upon in the pass rush more this season, and the team is banking on him making great strides in his second year. He is up to 260 pounds, a weight he wants to stay for the season, and he likes the way he gets off on his left side with his right hand down.
May 13, 08:13 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant isn't appearing likely to receive the long-term deal he wants from the Cowboys this offseason. Even if the Cowboys are able to agree on the financial terms with Bryant, the wide receiver will need to agree to some type of off-the-field structure designed to limit his risk.
May 12, 10:42 AM Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle could see the bulk of the carries as the season weighs on, in the opinion of beat writer Todd Archer. Archer pegged Randle for 1,200 rushing yards this season in what Archer admitted was a bold prediction.

Fantasy Impact: This wouldn't be a surprise. Randle might bring the most to the table out of any of the Cowboys' backs right now.
May 11, 02:32 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant may return punts in 2015, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. With the loss of former WR Dwayne Harris, the Cowboys are in need of a new punt returner. Jones said that WR Cole Beasley will probably be the first option, but that Bryant could also be used since he returned punts in college and has done so in his professional career.
