Dallas Cowboys Team Stats 2018 Cowboys Snaps

10-6, 1st NFC East

at LAR

1:15 am GMT, 1/13

Addition by subtraction is a phrase that comes to mind when thinking of the 2018 Cowboys. This year's squad's passing attack is completely overhauled after the retirement of veteran tight end Jason Witten and release of former top-flight wideout Dez Bryant. The duo finished first or second last year on the team in targets, receptions, receiving yards, and touchdown receptions. Both players lacked explosiveness, though, and Bryant was wildly inefficient. After a ho-hum sophomore year for Dak Prescott, he could benefit from no longer feeling the need to air it out to Bryant and spreading the ball around instead. However, who's he going to spread the ball around to?

Can the Passing Game Come to Life?

Dallas was fairly quiet in terms of adding pass-catching talent, but they did sign Allen Hurns and draft Colorado State receiver Michael Gallup with the 17th pick in the third round of this year's NFL Draft. They'll join slot receiver Cole Beasley and annual underachiever Terrance Williams in the passing attack. It's an underwhelming position group, but if Gallup is able to quickly acclimate himself to pro ball and Hurns returns 2015 form, it could be palatable. The wild card who could add a completely different dimension to the passing attack is tight end and former basketball player Rico Gathers. The range of outcomes for him this year is massive, as he could fail to see regular playing time or emerge as a valuable big-play threat (especially in the red zone).

The passing game is a major question mark, but there's no question that workhorse back Ezekiel Elliott will be the focal point of the offense. Zeke eventually served a six-game suspension last year, and his sophomore season wasn't nearly as impressive as his dynamic rookie year. Although, he's still one of the best backs on the planet who can rip off big plays, move the pile on short-yardage carries and do damage in the passing attack as well. The defense has a pair of stars in oft-injured linebacker Sean Lee and sack-monster Demarcus Lawrence. Chidobe Awuzie acquitted himself well as a rookie at cornerback, as did Xavier Woods at safety, and the team spent a first-round pick in this year's draft on linebacker Leighton Vander Esch. There's a lot of youth on the Dallas defense, and if it takes even a slight step forward, this could be an above-average defense. While it's a boring projection, this is a textbook example of a .500-ish team give or take a game either direction.
