QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Dak Prescott574.6379.24539.328.1610.3450.6260.63.16318.55
Shattering previous career highs as a passer, Prescott threw for 4,902 yards and 30 touchdowns and only Lamar Jackson scored more fantasy points in 2019. With CeeDee Lamb slipping to Dallas in the draft, the trio of Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Lamb give Prescott one of the league's best trio of pass-catchers. Dak's rushing ability -- 277-plus rushing yards every year and 21 scores in four seasons -- raises his fantasy floor.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Ezekiel Elliott290.41306.89.4454.64152.32242.74
A little less involved as a receiver in 2019 (54/420/2) than 2018 (77/567/3), Elliott has exceeded 300 carries every year except for his 10-game 2017 season and he's led the NFL in rushing yards per game in three of four seasons. Guaranteed for a massive workload behind one of the league's top offensive lines and in one of the league's most prolific offenses, Elliott is a slam-dunk top-three pick in 2020.
Tony Pollard88448.82.222178.21.2183.16
Based on his talent, Pollard probably deserves more snaps and touches than he got as a rookie, but he's purely a handcuff to Elliott. Pollard, who averaged 5.29 yards per carry as a rookie, got double-digit carries in only four games where the Cowboys' average margin of victory was 24.25 points. If Elliott were to miss any time, however, Pollard would become a must-start.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Amari Cooper73.41053.37.341.14.20.01149.85
In his first full season with the Cowboys, Cooper had 79 catches and set career highs in receiving yards (1,189) and touchdowns (eight). Adding CeeDee Lamb to the receiver room with Cooper and Michael Gallup gives the team the league's most-talented wide receiver trio, but at the same time, the net effect will likely be a few less targets for Cooper in 2020. In addition, fantasy owners may be even more frustrated by the boom-or-bust nature to Cooper's game logs in 2020.
Michael Gallup59.7931.34.78000121.81
It was a breakout sophomore campaign for Gallup, who (more than) doubled his production across the board with 66 catches for 1,107 yards and six touchdowns in 2019. From a talent standpoint, Gallup may be the team's third-best receiver behind Cooper and rookie CeeDee Lamb, but both Randall Cobb and Jason Witten are gone. (Then again, Mike McCarthy said that "Gallup is a No. 1 WR in my view.") The addition of Lamb makes it less likely Gallup builds upon or even duplicates last year's numbers, but he's still a viable WR3 in fantasy.
CeeDee Lamb59.6819.55.361.16.10.01114.78
While he was the third receiver drafted (after Henry Ruggs III and Jerry Jeudy), many believed that Lamb was the most talented in a wide receiver class that was viewed as one of the best ever. With exceptional ball skills and run-after-catch ability, Lamb has the potential to develop into the Cowboys No. 1 receiver as early as 2021. For 2020, however, he's likely to finish behind both Cooper and Gallup in fantasy production.
Cedrick Wilson18.3176.60.9200023.18

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Blake Jarwin53.9611.84.1800086.26
Jarwin should see a significant jump in playing time and targets with Jason Witten (and his 83 targets) now in Vegas. Over his past two seasons combined, Jarwin has turned his 77 targets into 58 catches for 672 yards (11.6 Y/R) and six touchdowns.
Dalton Schultz19.8183.20.9900024.26
