The Cowboys DST is not a good Fantasy option heading into this season. They were bad in 2013 at No. 19 in Fantasy points, and losing DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher, who were their top two pass rushers, isn't going to help. On top of that, standout linebacker Sean Lee (ACL) is out for the season. There remains some talent on defense for the Cowboys with Brandon Carr and Barry Church, and hopefully rookie defensive end Demarcus Lawrence can help the pass rush, but a lot of work has to be done for Fantasy owners to consider using the Cowboys DST in any leagues this year. We would ignore the unit in all leagues on Draft Day. If they start off the season playing well, then you can add them off waivers as a bye-week replacement.
