Dallas Cowboys Offense

Quarterback (3)

Starter: Dak Prescott

Back-up: Andy Dalton

Prospect: Ben DiNucci

The first two go without saying. Dak Prescott is the key to this high powered offense and the reason the Dallas Cowboys are considered favorites in 2020. He’ll be competing for a league MVP award and guiding the most talented offense in the NFC.

Andy Dalton provides vital depth in case what happened last season happens again this season. If you’ll remember, Dak was brilliant through the first half of the season, but after suffering a shoulder injury that kept him from even practicing during the week, he fell back t earth.

In an ideal situation, Dak would sit out a couple weeks and get better while the back-up holds things down and drives the bus. The Dallas Cowboys can do that this season with Dalton. They couldn’t with Cooper Rush last season.

Finally, “the Noooooch” makes the team as the developmental QB. He had interest around the league on draft day and Dallas doesn’t want to risk losing him. Besides, Mike McCarthy has a long history of keeping three quarterbacks on his final rosters.

Receivers (5)

Starters: Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, CeeDee Lamb

Back-ups: Cedrick Wilson, Noah Brown

There’s really no surprises here. The Dallas Cowboys went on record this week saying Cedrick and Noah are both well ahead of the pack. And for about two months I’ve been talking about how the Cowboys should go just five deep at WR this year since Jon Fassel prefers defensive backs to receivers on special teams.

Cooper, Gallup, and Lamb are about as good a trio as we’ve seen in this league. As long as Gallup stops dropping it, Coop stays healthy, and Lamb does what we think he’ll do, these guys are going to be on the field A LOT.

Brown and Wilson are viable options at all three WR positions and special teams stars on top of that. This is a lean and mean unit that will probably call up a practice squad body on game day each week.
