Offensive coordinator and play caller Bill Callahan will return to the Dallas Cowboys next season as will defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin. While at Senior Bowl practices owner/GM Jerry Jones replied to questions about potentially replacing the coaches, "No movement there, everybody is under contract, so nothing there. Just nothing there at all, everybody has a contract and I plan on them being here."
Rejoice, fantasy football enthusiasts! The return of Kiffin means big points for everyone!
The mediocre NFC East gets the bulk of the opportunities to rack up yards and points against the worst defense in the league yet again. The 'Boys defense gave up 27 points per game and yielded over 415 yards per game in 2013. With cap issues looming, Kiffin won't be able to fill the mammoth sized holes in his defense . That means big numbers yet again for your NFC East favorites. Not sure if you want to take Jamaal Charles or LeSean McCoy first overall? Maybe this news will help.
But it also means big numbers for the Cowboys offense, particularly in the passing game. Tony Romo will be called upon for big fourth quarter comeback rallies, and despite the potential for more turnovers, he'll get his yards and touchdowns, keeping him in mid-low QB1 territory. Dez Bryant clearly benefits also, but it's unknown whether Miles Austin will return or if Terrence Williams will be the new full time number two in Dallas. Bryant will once again battle for the second receiver taken overall in fantasy drafts with Brandon Marshall and A.J. Green.
