It is that point of the 12 months for Fantasy Soccer, so let’s play: Which division rival’s finest participant would make the most important influence on every staff? Every season, when our staff would not fairly meet preseason expectations, we won’t assist however marvel, ‘What if?’.
Once we contemplate this train for the Dallas Cowboys and the NFC East, we’ve to first reply two questions: 1. What’s the Cowboys’ greatest deficiency?; 2. Which participant within the division would most resolve the issue?
Anybody who watched any Cowboys soccer in 2020 noticed the obvious deficiencies. There have been many. However one which stood out on the defensive aspect of the ball was the defensive position. You do not give up 57 touchdowns taking part in sound defensive soccer.
There have been, after all, different areas of want for the Cowboys in 2020 however the defensive position produced one of many worst run-stopping defenses in NFL historical past. So we’ll begin there.
Who may assist?
It simply so occurs that arguably the most effective defensive participant within the NFC East proper now could be Washington Soccer Staff’s Chase Younger. A real star on the rise, he is the anchor of probably the greatest defensive traces within the league.
If Younger continues on his present path, Washington’s protection will proceed to enhance and change into elite. The truth is, there is likely to be 31 groups within the NFL that may commerce defensive traces proper now with WFT.
The Cowboys are definitely amongst them. (Value nothing: This similar parlor recreation would certainly have the WFT including Dallas QB Dak Prescott … perhaps not a swap the Cowboys actually want to make.)
What may Younger deliver to the Cowboys? Think about who he’d be taking part in with. As an opposing offensive line who’re you going to double-team on the surface, Younger or Demarcus Lawrence? That is a tricky project both means. And when Younger or Lawrence want a breather? Enter Randy Gregory. Gregory then turns into a “tremendous sub” providing relaxation durations for each starters.
After all, you’d nonetheless want to enhance the inside line a bit, however for the sake of this admittedly cringe-worthy train, including Younger to this protection makes it instantly higher. A deeper and more practical defensive position helps enhance the linebackers and the secondary.
The protection as an entire improves with only one elite participant added. Troublesome to check Younger with a star on his helmet. However for the needs of Fantasy Soccer, at all times scrumptious.
