PROJECTED 2014 SEASON STATS

2014 Projections170100132713.312180200
2014 Outlook: Last season the Cowboys scaled back their vertical throws by 14 percent, from 194 to 167. So it makes sense that Bryant finished with only 74 fantasy points on such passes (tied for 19th) and saw his yards per catch decrease by more than 11 percent. The saving grace for Bryant's fantasy owners was his 111 fantasy points on short throws; he was one of only two WRs to break triple digits in that category. With former Lions OC Scott Linehan now serving as the Cowboys' passing-game coordinator, don't be shocked to see Dallas stretch the field more this year with Bryant. He has the skill set to get separation deep and rack up yards on underneath throws.
2. Jason Witten, Dal TEYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2013 Statistics1117385111.78000127
2014 Projections1137481811.17000123
2014 Outlook: Last year Witten topped 5 receiving TDs for just the second time in the past six seasons, earning his fantasy owners a respite from their annual end zone torment. In general, though, 2013 was a bit of a comedown. Witten posted his fewest catches and lowest yardage total since 2006 and had a whopping seven games in which he caught three or fewer passes. He's still only 32 and can bust loose in any given week, but we'd be worried about last year's so-so totals combined with his typical dearth of touchdowns.
3. Terrance Williams, Dal WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2013 Statistics744473616.7534096
2014 Projections975792816.364190127
2014 Outlook: Williams got off to a slow start as a rookie, catching only five balls for 60 yards in his first three games. But a few route-running mistakes aside, the Cowboys couldn't have asked for much more from their third-round pick. Williams flashed big-play potential, and his 16.7 yards per catch ranked fifth among receivers with at least 40 catches, behind only Josh Gordon, Riley Cooper, Calvin Johnson and Torrey Smith. In total, he finished third in fantasy points among rookie WRs (96) and second on the Cowboys in offensive snaps played by a receiver (648). Both of those numbers should increase now that the rookie jitters are out of the way.
4. Darren McFadden, Dal RBYEARRUSHYDSAVGTDRECYDSTDPTS
2013 Statistics1143793.3517108071

2014 Outlook: No. Thanks. McFadden returns to Oakland on short money, and sure, in theory he's entering his age-27 season and still possesses a raw size/speed/moves combo that's tough to match. But after six seasons in the league, he's still never played more than 13 games and has missed 19 contests over the past three years. We suppose that everything could break right for Run DMC and he could emerge off fantasy benches to finally become the game changer everyone has been hoping for. But with Maurice Jones-Drew and Latavius Murray on hand, there's also a chance he's on the street come September. McFadden is pure flier material now.
