The Cowboys showed flashes of brilliance on offense, but were inconsistent overall. Quarterbacks coach Kellen Moore was upgraded to offensive coordinator and will assume the playcalling duties in 2019.

Can we expect more synergy in the passing game with Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper? Will Ezekiel Elliott maintain his standing as a top running back in the league?

Cowboys Fantasy Outlooks

Chris Raybon analyzes Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore’s playcalling tendencies to predict who could benefit the most.

  • Gone is Scott Linehan’s scheme that was essentially static pre-snap, rarely doing anything to scheme his receivers open. In its place is Kellen Moore’s system, which utilizes more pre-snap motion. This should have a profound impact on the weekly consistency of Amari Cooper, who was a monster from the slot with Dallas last season with 11 catches, 203 yards, and 2 TDs on 14 targets.
  • Moore will also emphasize creating big plays via the deep ball, according to an interview that appears on the Cowboys’ official websiteDak Prescott ranked 24th in deep passing rate (10.8%), but fourth in passer rating on such throws (115.7). This should boost the Year 2 breakout potential of Michael Gallup, who amassed 39% of his total receiving yardage via the deep ball last season. Gallup put up 3.5 receptions, 60.0 yards and 0.5 TDs on 6.3 targets per game over the last four, which are top-24 WR numbers in standard and top-30 in PPR.
  • The re-signing of Alfred Morris, who averaged 16.5 carries per game over a six-game stretch with Ezekiel Elliott out in 2017, suggests Morris would be involved if Zeke were to miss games. But with Moore now calling the shots, a committee that also features explosive rookie fourth-rounder Tony Pollard seems more likely than Morris reprising a full workload.
