Fantasy impact of the Cowboys 2021 NFL Draft selections

We take a look at the fantasy football impact of the Dallas Cowboys’ selections in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Dak Prescott is back and the Dallas Cowboys are stacked with offensive skill players. They also have a nice set of draft picks, starting with No. 10 overall. There have been some rumblings that Jerry Jones loves tight end Kyle Pitts, but he would likely need to trade up with the Falcons to No. 4 to grab him. That’s not out of the question, but the Cowboys need offensive linemen and pass defense in this draft more.

A large contingency of mock drafts have the Cowboys drafting Alabama cornerback Patrick Surtain. That makes plenty of sense, and there’s a real chance that happens. If one of the Top 2 offensive linemen fall to them, they might move that way as well. That would be my choice for the fantasy football prospects of the Cowboys multiple fantasy worthy players. But, even if they go with Surtain with their first pick, they should still be able to grab a starting offensive lineman with their second round pick. The amount of talent in this draft for linemen has me guessing they’ll go with Surtain.

Fantasy football impact

Fehoko ends up being the first skill position player the Cowboys selected in the 2021 draft. At 6’4” the size is there for the Stanford product. Dallas has a full table of WRs, however, with Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup, as well a Cedrick Wilson.
