    Cowboys Wishlist: 3 Things I Want to See in Kellen Moore’s Offense

    The will mostly remain the same in terms of players. However, a big change is coming with new taking over the talented unit. In a special edition of , I'll share the three big things I want to see in Moore's offense in 2019.

    Let me know what you want to see in the comments section below or tweet me @MauNFL!

    Dak Prescott Weighs in on Cowboys "Dak-Friendly" Offense Approach

    Wish #1: Frequent Read Option

    Despite 's skills as a runner, rarely did we see the Cowboys run read option plays. For a team that seems to have the perfect duo for these plays, they certainly seemed to have wasted it over the last few years. This is an offense that has plenty of talent to be struggling as much as they did in the last year.

    Imagine being concerned about getting the ball and Dak Prescott keeping it at the same time? Not to mention the play action threat with a group of receivers led by , and … oh, and a veteran in who might be older but whose hands are very reliable.

    The Athletic's Bob Sturm pointed out Prescott's average of 4.46 yards per carry and 18 touchdowns in the red zone between 2016 and 2018. The league average for all players is 2.64 and there's no one close to over four yards and over 10 touchdowns in the league. Dak has been dangerous when using his legs and yet, the Cowboys haven't used the read option as much. I hope that changes with Kellen Moore taking over.

    Wish #2: Use Tight Ends More

    I'm still impressed by how little the Cowboys utilized their tight ends in 2018. In fact, as noted on a few months ago, this has happened consistently in 's career.

    Last year, had only three games with more than three targets. In those games, he racked up 56, 45 and 119 yards. This makes me wonder if the real problem at tight end last season was more about how they were utilized rather than the players at the position.

    With Jason Witten back, Jarwin and the future Hall of Famer could split the snaps. Hopefully, Kellen Moore gives them a more active role on the offense. I really think we'll see way more from them.

    Wish #3: Pre-Snap Motion

    Pre-snap motion is truly a thing of beauty. The simple fact of getting a player in motion before the ball is snapped can go a long way to keep a in its toes and cause confusion to set up a successful play. In Boise State, Moore ran an offense that heavily relied on pre-snap motions.

    The first year offensive coordinator won't turn the Cowboys into the new but he can add this kind of trickery to help Dallas take the next step offensively. Dak Prescott will be playing his fourth year of professional football and adding this to the offense will only help the young QB by making his reads even easier.
