Season Outlook Analysis

Offense
Position
Quarterbacks
B-
Prescott has benefited more from the Dallas than Dallas has from him. Giving him a top 5 quarterback extension would be a huge mistake.
Running Backs
A
I expect Elliott to be back before the start of the season, but only by a week or so. If I am wrong and he misses time this grade drops to a D.
Protection & Blocking
A-
Dallas still has one pf the best lines in football.
Receiving
B
Cooper's resurgence should continue but there isn't much else there.

Skills Analysis Notes
Having both Cooper and Elliott make Dallas a difficult team to defend. Having a dominating offensive line makes them even better.

Good, not great team, with major holes at defensive tackle. Tough to see this team win many big games.
