The best Dallas Cowboys players for your Fantasy Football Dynasty league

Fantasy Football has taken over the NFL. It’s now impossible to watch a game without a ticker to keep you updated on each player’s performance.

While there are different types of leagues, the Dynasty League has recently gained popularity. This style allows the league’s coaches to retain their players, giving them more investment over their entire career rather than just one season.

For Dallas Cowboys fans, there are several players who deserve consideration in a league like this.

Here we look at the five best options, starting with two late travelers and then diving into three more reliable established stars.

Ryan Flournoy

Despite being selected in the late rounds, Ryan Flournoy has already earned a lot of respect around the Cowboys. He showed up to offseason workouts ready to prove his worth and made one impressive play after another.

A product of Southeast Missouri State, the 6-foot-1, 202-pounder has been identified as a rookie who could “break out” this season.

With the WR3 position wide open, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Flournoy could steal this role early on. Even if that doesn’t happen in 2024, the future is bright for the oversized wide receiver, making him worthy of a late-round pick to save for the future.

Jalen Tolbert, Cowboys

If Flournoy can’t secure the third wide receiver spot, it will be due to the presence of Jalen Tolbert. The third-year receiver had a forgettable rookie campaign, with just two catches for 12 yards. He improved dramatically in 2023 with 22 receptions for 268 yards and two touchdowns.

His comfort on offense grew as the season went on, and the WR3 spot is his to lose. If he can seize the opportunity, he will be in line for a big campaign, and he has been impressive in offseason workouts so far. Of course, there is no guarantee, which makes this choice a risky one. Still, the potential benefit might be worth rolling the dice.

Dak Prescott, Cowboys

Dak Prescott may not have as much time left in the league as some of the other star quarterbacks, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t worth drafting in a dynasty league. Prescott turns 31 this season but has shown no signs of slowing down.

In fact, he’s been moving in the opposite direction. He’s coming off the best season of his career and is the eighth-ranked fantasy quarterback, according to ESPN.

Prescott completed nearly 70 percent of his passing attempts for 4,516 yards with 36 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He hasn’t run the ball as much as he did earlier in his career, but he still had two touchdowns in 2023. This year, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see that number rise due to the lack of options in the ground game.

The issues with their running game are another reason to consider Prescott, as he will throw the ball more than ever. As for his future prospects, either he will continue to put up the numbers he has in Dallas or he will go to a team willing to spend and put talent around him in 2025.

Dallas Cowboys, Jake Ferguson

In just his second season in the league, Jake Ferguson was a top-10 tight end in fantasy football. The Wisconsin product burst onto the scene with 761 yards and five touchdowns on 71 receptions.

He won’t be a late-round bargain like he was in 2023, but there’s also no reason to think he won’t be worth drafting much earlier.

Even with Luke Schoonmaker behind him, Ferguson will catch more passes in 2024. Michael Gallup is gone and the Cowboys’ running game is a concern. That will lead to more passes than ever and Ferguson will be one of the main beneficiaries.

Dallas Cowboys, CeeDee Lamb

Heading into the 2024 season, CeeDee Lamb is the No. 1 wide receiver in fantasy, according to ESPN experts.

It’s hard to argue against that, considering the numbers he put up in 2023. Lamb led the league with 135 receptions and set a Dallas franchise record with 1,749 yards. He added 12 touchdowns as a receiver and two more on the ground.

Lamb is currently in the middle of a strike, but is still worthy of an early pick in dynasty leagues. Even if the strike affects him in 2024, he is among the best young wide receivers at just 25 years old. His name will be at the top of the leaderboards for years to come.
