Top 5 Cowboys for Fantasy Football in 2022

1. WR CeeDee Lamb

No or means good things for Lamb in . This season, Lamb is projected to receive 20 percent of the Cowboys’ targets and about 130 overall, creating many opportunities to rack up points,

He amassed 2,037 receiving yards in his first two seasons. The only Dallas player to record more receiving yards in two seasons was , who registered 2,235 yards from 1965-66.

With Lamb becoming the Cowboys' No. 1 receiver this season, his production should only increase. Look for him as your potential WR1 in drafts.

2. TE Dalton Schultz

Contract or not, Schultz will still take the field for Dallas this season. After catching the third most passes out of any last season, he’ll be expected to build off it in 2022.

Only Darren Waller, Travis Kelce and Mark Andrews have recorded more fantasy points than Schultz since the started. He gets a fair amount of targets, has a lot of trust from and has an established role in the Cowboys’ high-powered .

Schultz could be someone’s sleeper pick for a No. 1 tight end. If you wait to address the tight end position, Schultz could be your guy in later rounds.

3. RB Ezekiel Elliott

Efficiency doesn’t matter in fantasy football. What matters is yards and touchdowns, which Elliott produced a lot of last season.

Elliott is coming off his fourth 1,000 rushing yard season and scored 12 total touchdowns. He’s expected to be Dallas’ starting again this season, so he should replicate that production.

Running backs can get you the most points of any position in fantasy football. If you need an RB2 or someone to fill the flex position, look for Elliott.

4. QB Dak Prescott

Quarterbacks don’t usually get you as many points as running backs or receivers, which is why Prescott is so low on this list. He finished ninth in fantasy points amongst quarterbacks last year in standard leagues and will probably do the same this season.

While the loss of talent is excellent for Lamb’s fantasy numbers, the opposite is true for Prescott. He’s still good enough to be someone’s QB1 for fantasy, so don’t sweat if he ends up being your guy.

5. RB Tony Pollard

How much Pollard will be involved in the Dallas offense this season remains a mystery. But he had a career fantasy year last season.

Pollard finished 30th amongst running backs in fantasy points and has RB3 production with RB1 upside. If Elliott gets hurt, he could maximize that RB1 potential.
