RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Although Crawford set career highs with 35 tackles and five sacks in 2015, his production was disappointing considering the big contract extension he'd signed that offseason. He played most of the season with an injured shoulder that required surgery in January however and the Cowboys are confident that a healthy Crawford will be able to live up to the expectations created by his salary. They have little choice but to pin their hopes on him, though. With Randy Gregory and DeMarcus Lawrence both suspended to begin the season, Dallas needs Crawford to step up and assume a leading role in their pass rush.
Crawford showed flashes of becoming a disruptive force at defensive tackle in 2014, recording 33 tackles and three sacks in 15 games. The Cowboys are very high on him, and playing the three-technique in Rod Marinelli's defense should afford Crawford plenty of opportunities to make an impact, but his value in IDP leagues will probably be restricted to deeper formats.
After missing all of 2013 with a torn Achilles tendon, Crawford rejoins a Cowboys defensive line desperate for playmakers after DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher departed in free agency. The third year player is still looking for his first career sack, but Crawford has the motor to become an asset in Rod Marinelli's system.
2012 third round pick is still developing as a football player, but figured to be one of the Cowboys' top defensive line reserves until an Achilles tear ended his season.
Third round pick is raw but physically gifted, and will need to bulk up a bit to be a serious threat for a starting job at DE in the Cowboys' 3-4 defense. He may not make a big impact until 2013.
