Lance Dunbar May Be The Dallas Cowboys’ Ultimate Sleeper In 2014
Lance Dunbar may have played in only nine games last season for the Dallas Cowboys, but when he played, he looked electric. Dunbar exactly doubled his yards in three fewer games from 2012 to 2013, ending with 150 yards. That number doesn’t blow you away, and it definitely shouldn’t, but if you watched Dunbar play, then you should be pretty excited about his potential in 2014 and moving forward for Dallas.
While it’s no question that DeMarco Murray is the Cowboys’ starting running back, it’s also no question that he’s had some injury issues throughout his career. Fortunately for Murray and the Cowboys, he went through 14 games last season and looked incredibly good while making the Pro Bowl. I feel pretty confident that Murray will be on the field quite a bit in 2014 and should have another big year, but that doesn’t mean we should look past Dunbar.
Dunbar has the potential to be a huge piece of the Cowboys’ offense in 2014, and we saw what new offensive coordinator Scott Linehan is capable of doing with two strong running backs on the roster. He helped both Reggie Bush and Joique Bell have big years last season, and I think it may be similar to what we see with Murray and Dunbar.
Dunbar is going to get his fair share of touches, and just like Murray does when he gets his, he’ll make sure he’s productive with those touches. Add in the fact that the Cowboys have bolstered their offensive line even more by drafting Zack Martin, and there’s a serious reason for fans to be excited about the Cowboys’ run game in 2014.
Don’t get me wrong, Linehan will absolutely air it out, and all of Dunbar’s production may not come on the ground, but we’ll see him get the ball in open space in the passing game as well. Dunbar’s potential and speed is seriously dangerous, and I fully believe that the Cowboys will take advantage of his talent.
