Fantasy Friday: Are You Still Starting Your Cowboys?

As we reach the midpoint of the season, Cowboys players haven't been living up to expectations individually, much like the team in general. Are you sticking with them in your lineups?

It's been a rough season for Cowboys fans; 3-4 will do that to you. While the defense has shown some improvement, it's the offense that moves the meter for most fans and the media and Dallas' version has been in a bit of disarray.

When it comes to Fantasy Football, that's a no-no; especially when your individual players are some of the most well-known across the league.

I'll admit it, I was one of the millions of people that felt that Dez Bryant would have a breakout year in 2012. I targeted him in my fantasy drafts and although his production hasn't been bad, he hasn't been worth his average draft position (51). Of course, there are disappointments all over the league, but Cowboys players tend to be overdrafted due to the large amount of Cowboys fans worldwide, so you tend to have to reach if you really want one on your team.

In most years, I vehemently advise against that, but didn't listen to myself and wanted Dez on my roster this year. My mistake.

Overall, the Cowboys have come nowhere close to duplicating their offensive stats of 2011. For years the Cowboys have failed to produce much in the way of rushing touchdowns and this season is no different. Slowed by the loss of DeMarco Murray, the running back situation turned toxic against the Giants when the team was only able to muster 19 total rush yards.

Is it time to give up on the Cowboys running backs in fantasy? Are you ready to move on from Tony Romo and a passing game that isn't finding the end zone? I take on these two important fantasy topics in the below video.

Feel free to use this post as your fantasy football sounding board for the weekend. Rant about the Cowboys, ask questions about your lineups. We're about to be in the fantasy football stretch run for 2012. Buckle up your keyboards.
