2016 Dallas Cowboys offensive player projections

Here are some projected offensive stats for the superstar players of the Dallas Cowboys for the upcoming 2016 regular season.

We are finally here. The first game for the Dallas Cowboys in the 2016 regular season is less than a week away.

There is a lot of concern going into the start of the year with quarterback Tony Romo being sidelined for what seems likely to be the first half of the year- at least- due to a broken back suffered in the third preseason.

On the bright side, the Cowboys have an exciting rookie taking the reigns at quarterback and the start of the year will be a wonderful opportunity to find out if they did indeed get the steal of the draft in the fourth round this year by selecting Dak Prescott.

Joining Prescott in the starting backfield is a fellow rookie in running back Ezekiel Elliott. Giving a ridiculously talented runner like Zeke the opportunity to run behind the best run blocking offensive line in football has to get you excited.

Superstar wide receiver Dez Bryant is fully healthy and is ready to roll, in his interviews he has seemed extremely confident that he will bounce back in a major way this season.

There is reason to believe that this offense has potential to be very explosive, with or without Romo.

There are a few more question marks surrounding the offense- how will running back Lance Dunbar fit into the equation now that Darius Jackson is on the active roster and will McFadden be used as trade bait?

Those are unknowns. But without further ado, here are projections for the offensive skill players that the Cowboys can count on in 2016.

Ezekiel Elliott- running back: 273 carries, 1,334 yards, 12 rushing touchdowns. 41 catches, 320 yards, 2 receiving touchdowns

Alfred Morris– running back: 148 carries, 695 yards, 4 rushing touchdowns. 12 catches, 85 yards

Dez Bryant- wide receiver: 86 catches, 1228 yards, 14 touchdowns

Terrance Williams– wide receiver: 61 catches, 974 yards, 7 touchdowns

Cole Beasley– wide receiver: 67 catches, 749 yards, 4 touchdowns

Jason Witten– tight end: 83 catches, 893 yards, 6 touchdowns
