2014 Fantasy Football: Analyzing Dallas Cowboys’ WRs
The Dallas Cowboys have a good situation when it comes to their receiver depth chart. The main question is how long will they have them for? Dez Bryant is in the final year of his rookie contract and will likely want to be paid like one of the top wide receivers. Due to the salary cap constrictions that the Cowboys have, it will certainly make things interesting when the two sides go to discuss a long-term extension for the receiver. Quarterback Tony Romo is recovering from offseason back surgery and coming off another disappointing year in terms of winning. He should be looking to hit his receivers often this year as they look to push for a playoff spot.
The aforementioned Dez Bryant should be locked in as a top-10 selection for fantasy football wide receivers this season. He has topped the 1,000 yard mark and the 10 touchdown mark in each of the past two seasons, and with Scott Linehan, who is a passing game specialist calling the players, Bryant should yet again be the focal point of the Dallas offense.
After enjoying a great rookie season, second-year player Terrance Williams will be expected to start opposite Bryant on the outside, which pens him in as one of the top breakout candidates in all of fantasy football last year. Williams showed a great rapport with Tony Romo in his rookie season, and will look to build on that in his sophomore season. From an optimistic perspective, Williams should be viewed as a low-end WR-2 with a ton of upside in fantasy football this year.
