Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Dallas Cowboys.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Dak Prescott509.1338.63792.823.169.1669320.95288.12
The next time that Prescott finishes outside the top-12 fantasy quarterbacks will be his first. And based on my rankings, that won't be this year. Through his first three NFL seasons, Prescott has finished as fantasy's QB6, QB11 and QB10, respectively.

In the team's run-first offense, Prescott threw it 526 times in 2018 for 3,885 yards, both of which were career highs, and the presence of Amari Cooper gives Prescott a legitimate weapon in the passing game. Consistent with 22 or 23 passing touchdowns each season, Prescott has rushed for exactly six scores each season and 944 rushing yards over his three seasons.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Ezekiel Elliott3071396.99.5264.9532.22.6265.63
Not only does he have two rushing titles in his three NFL seasons, but Elliott has actually led the NFL in rushing yards per game every year that he's been in the league. His passing-game role expanded greatly in 2018 as he converted his 95 targets into 77 receptions for 567 yards and three touchdowns, all of which were career highs. With the Vegas incident now behind him in terms of potential league discipline, the workhorse back is a threat for a 2,000/10 YFS/TD season. Elliott's 16-game average has been 2,099 YFS and 13.6 TDs over his 40 NFL games.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Amari Cooper80.91104.38.091.16.10159.58
The midseason trade for Cooper was mutually beneficial for the team and player. In his 11 games (counting the postseason) with the Cowboys, Cooper racked up 66 catches for 896 yards and seven touchdowns. Only six receivers scored more fantasy points than Cooper from Weeks 9 to 17 -- he was the WR9 in PPR formats. Cooper enters his age-25 season with three 1,000-yard campaigns already under his belt and is shooting for (an unrealistic and record-breaking) 2,000 yards in 2019.
Michael Gallup44.2674.13.200086.61
Making some big plays down the stretch, Gallup's best game came in the team's playoff loss to the Rams with six catches for 119 yards. While the offense most likely won't support two fantasy-viable wide receivers in standard-sized leagues, Gallup should build upon his late-season rookie success for a year-over-year improvement in production.
Randall Cobb43.1435.32.162.311.5057.64
Over the past three seasons, Cobb has missed a total of 10 games and averaged 54.7/548.7/3.3 per year. As the WR3 on such a run-heavy team, Cobb would do well to exceed his three-year average.
Tavon Austin6.466.60.549.264.40.2818.02
Allen Hurns6.691.70.5600012.53

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Jason Witten44.1383.73.3100058.23
Coming out of retirement in large part to help mentor the team's young tight ends, Witten is a low-upside safety blanket for Prescott, who says that Witten has "gotten better, stronger and faster." In his season before retiring, Witten had 63 catches for 560 yards and five touchdowns, which could be a best-case scenario for the 37-year-old tight end although I have him projected for less.
Blake Jarwin23257.62.0700038.18
The majority of Jarwin's production came in his final four games (20/228/3) with seven-plus targets in three of those games. Witten's unretirement limits Jarwin's likehilood to continue his late-season momentum into 2019.
Dalton Schultz8.179.40.320009.86
Rico Gathers2.531.30.130003.91
