Dak Prescott558.3374.14159.330.7113.9663.7261.21.91298.87
Trey Lance17.810.7127.30.620.529.846.10.2912.88
Cooper Rush17.810.8123.70.690.343.

Dak Prescott: Prescott missed five games after getting injured in the season opener. From Week 7 (when he returned from injury) through the end of the season, Prescott was fantasy's QB6 — QB7 on a PPG basis. Even without Dalton Schultz as a security blanket, Prescott's overall weapons are improved with a better WR2 (Brandin Cooks). In addition, Michael Gallup should be better, now that he's another year removed from his ACL tear.

Trey Lance: The No. 3 overall pick in 2022, Lance has dual-threat upside if he gets the opportunity to make any starts in 2023, but that would obviously require an injury (or perhaps a Week 18 rest for starters). But would he start over Cooper Rush if called into action in 2023?


Tony Pollard210.7990.36.7445.9368.32.4213.65
Deuce Vaughn63.7267.51.4321.4154.41.168.07
Rico Dowdle102.9432.22.683.
Malik Davis21.690.70.542.417.60.115.87

Tony Pollard: Sharing the workload with Ezekiel Elliott, Pollard rushed for 1,007 yards and nine touchdowns and added 39 catches for 371 yards and another three touchdowns. With Elliott no longer on the roster (and now a Patriot), Pollard enters 2023 as a strong RB1 in fantasy drafts.

Deuce Vaughn: Malik Davis was arguably the favorite for RB2 duties at an earlier point in camp. Given that both Rico Dowdle and Vaughn sat in the third preseason game, however, they are likely to open the season as the change-of-pace complements to Pollard.


CeeDee Lamb1041263.699.871.10.39241.81
Brandin Cooks69.8851.26.22.716.90.11159.57
Michael Gallup46.5635.14.6000114.36
Jalen Tolbert19222.71.600041.37
KaVontae Turpin5.566.

CeeDee Lamb: After Amari Cooper was traded to the Browns last offseason, Lamb stepped into the WR1 role and shattered previous career highs with 107 receptions for 1,359 yards and nine touchdowns on 156 targets. Lamb finished as fantasy's WR6 in half-PPR scoring in 2022, and he was the WR3 from Weeks 7-18 when Dak Prescott returned from injury.

Brandin Cooks: Now onto his fifth NFL team, Cooks has logged six 1,000-yard seasons, at least one of which came with all four of his previous teams. Coming off a disappointing 57/699/3 season in 2022, Cooks should improve upon last year's numbers and is a viable fantasy WR3.

Michael Gallup: Gallup missed only the first three games of 2022, but his production was abysmal (39/424/4 in the regular season). Including two playoff games, he had less than 50 receiving yards in 15 of 16 games. Getting back to an 1,100-yard season (2019) is highly unlikely, especially with Cooks adding to the receiving corps, but he should be better in 2023 now that he's another year removed from his torn ACL.

Jalen Tolbert: Tolbert had a disappointing rookie season, but the second-year receiver has had a strong offseason. Even if he is the "most improved player on roster," it will likely take an injury to one of the team's top three receivers for Tolbert to become fantasy-relevant in 2023.


Jake Ferguson39.6416.83.200080.68
Luke Schoonmaker22.7233.71.800045.52
Peyton Hendershot12.9130.1100025.46
Sean McKeon2.826.50.20005.25

Jake Ferguson: The Cowboys used a second-round pick on Luke Schoonmaker, but Ferguson should pace the position group in receiving with Dalton Schultz now in Houston. Ferguson is a good bet to outperform his average draft position.
