Top 10 Best Dallas Cowboys Players Going Into the 2018 Season

Dallas had a disappointing 2017 season, in which they lacked talent in a lot of categories. It looks like they’re just losing more and more, but they still have good players. Who are they? We’re looking at the top 10 Best Dallas Cowboys players going into the 2018 season.
The Top Ten
1 Ezekiel Elliott Ezekiel Elijah Elliott is an American football running back for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. He played college football at Ohio State, where he earned second-team All-America honors in 2015.

Ezekiel Elliott led the league in rushing as a rookie with 1,631 yards and entered the following year as an MVP candidate. However, a suspension loomed over his head to start the season, and a long legal battle ensued.

Elliott ultimately served the six-game suspension, but the eight games that he played before that were affected by the threat of the suspension. The Cowboys went 3-3 without him. He gained 983 yards in the 10 games he did play.

Elliott should again join the MVP conversation as he is expected to play a significant role in the team's offense. He'll likely get somewhere close to the 354 touches he had and the 716 snaps he played in 2016.

2 Demarcus Lawrence

Demarcus Lawrence's fourteen and a half sacks and four forced fumbles in 2017 show how athletic he is. He may not produce the same numbers in 2018, but he'll likely have another Pro Bowl-caliber season.

3 Zack Martin Zachary Edward Martin is an American football offensive guard for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League.

Dallas gave Zack Martin a six-year extension recently and made him the highest-paid offensive lineman in NFL history. That shows how valuable his work is to the team. He will surely make the 2018 Pro Bowl if he can stay healthy.

Zack Martin is the most consistent blocker on the team and a key part of the offense. Without him, there would be a big hole that the Cowboys couldn't fill. Both the run and pass game would suffer. It's no wonder they've thrown a lot of money at him!

4 Dak Prescott Rayne Dakota "Dak" Prescott is an American football quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League.

Dak Prescott had a sophomore season to forget, missing the playoffs all while going 9-7. The Cowboys have tried to make their offense "Dak-friendly," but it's unclear if it has helped. Only time will tell if Prescott gets back to form anytime soon.

5 Tyron Smith

Tyron Smith is another elite offensive lineman who's part of arguably the best offensive line in the NFL. He'll likely follow Zack Martin to the Pro Bowl in 2018.

6 Travis Frederick Travis Frederick is a former American football center who played his entire career for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League.
7 Sean Lee

Sean Lee had a down year in 2017, and injuries seem to follow him everywhere. However, if he can stay healthy in 2018, he could have a bounce-back season.

8 David Irving

David Irving had seven sacks and one forced fumble in 2017. He's showing the Dallas Cowboys what he can do. Can he produce more sacks in 2018?

9 Cole Beasley

Cole Beasley may have to be the Dallas Cowboys' number one receiver in 2018, after a four-touchdown, 300-yard receiving season. The Cowboys are in a crisis at wide receiver.

10 Byron Jones

Byron Jones had one interception in 2017, which he returned for a touchdown. He has potential, but needs to show it more often.
