2015 Outlook: In his only meaningful action of 2014, Weeden was just awful filling in for Tony Romo, looking overwhelmed in a Week 9 loss against the Cardinals (7.5 Total QBR). That's not surprising to anyone who watched Weeden in Cleveland: He's simply a dreadful thrower. Given the fact that Romo is 35 and has had major back troubles, Weeden is one hit away from one of the NFL's glamour positions, where TD machine Dez Bryant would be at his disposal. But if Romo does go down, we'd expect even more run-heavy playcalling from the Cowboys to cover for Weeden's glaring inadequacies.
2015 Outlook: Low expectations surrounded the Cowboys entering the 2014 season. Already short on stars, Dallas was dealt a significant blow when LB Sean Lee went down in the preseason with a torn ACL. The Cowboys managed to post double-digit fantasy points just four times and were one of only five defenses that did not top 30 sacks. Lee's return and the signing of Greg Hardy on the line were meant to provide a boost. But Lee's inability to stay healthy, Hardy's suspension and the otherwise lackluster state of this defense for fantasy purposes give us pause. There's potential, but we're not holding our breath.
