2013 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Jun-29-2013 by Ben Standig

With stars DeMarcus Ware and Brandon Carr in the starting lineup, it feels like the Cowboys' fantasy defense should be a must start. Then a review of the basic stats reminds why perception and reality are not always the same. Dallas tied for 19th in fumbles recovered, ranked 20th in the NFL with 34 sacks and tied for last with only seven interceptions. That's a collective yikes for sure, but Ware remains a formidable pass rushing presence, the front 7 is solid (if Jay Ratliff stays healthy on the nose), while Carr and Morris Claiborne should develop into one of the game's most potent CB pairings. Ideally the offense keeps the Cowboys in front so the defenders can attack, attack and attack in the second half of games. If that happens consistently, then the D can become a consistent fantasy option.
