Dallas Cowboys Outlook 2022
We are joined by Cowboys Beat Writer Jon Machota to talk everything Dallas Cowboys. We talk about the fantasy football impact of guys like Zeke, Tony Pollard, and Dak Prescott. We discuss the potential volume and impact of all the offensive weapons.
Having these beat writers on the show really gives us that depth of insight that we as fantasy owners need before the season starts. Although no one can really predict the future this is as close as we can get.
Ezekiel Elliott vs Tony Pollard
We dive into this topic in this episode as we try to uncover who will get the bulk of the carries this season. It is obvious that Ezekiel Elliott is the main man, but the question is how much will Tony Pollard dip into the volume. After discussion, it sounds like Tony will be used much more in the passing attack and maybe in the slot as well.
Zeke was dealing with a partially torn PCL last season and didn’t get as much volume as he should have. This year he should be the main man still and hopefully see a slight uptick in the attempts based on last year. One thing we have learned over the past few years is that his volume has been declining and he may never be the Zeke from his rookie year. I think the fantasy football draft value is great for Zeke this year as he is coming off in the 3rd round. Make sure you get the 16 Rounds Draft solution to know exactly where to grab him this season. https://thefantasyfootballcounselor.com/16-rounds-draft-kit/
Wide Receivers and More
The wide receiver core has some question marks this season. You won’t have Gallup for the first few weeks of the season, and can Cee Dee Lamb handle the WR1 spot? After talking with Jon, he should confident in the Dak and Lamb connection. Lamb does have the talent and the speed, but how good is he at that 1 Position is the big question.
They also drafted Jalen Tolbert who could be a special player this year, but we don’t think that his ceiling is going to be very high this season.
Overall you should have a Cowboys team that will be very similar to last year, and minus a few known weapons like Amari Cooper. The difference for them winning as a team more will rely on the defense stepping up and taking charge.
