    No one is worth that kind of money to play a game, really.

    It’s not just a game. It’s sports entertainment at the highest level. A multi billion dollar business we all contribute to.

    You don’t have a problem with actors and artist earning hundred of millions with their craft do you ?

    Other teams....yes. usually all sunday games. Monday night....if it's good game. Same for thursday. Fantasy football...not at all interested. Again, you're entiled to your opinion. I'm not trying to convince you or belittle your pov. I think zeke's the best. You don't have to agree. But you won't change my mind.

    Remember most of these players ( about 80%) make less than a million a year. Chump change for a career that averages less than 5 years.

    Only 10% of amateur athletes make it professionally.

    If you finished in the top 10 of your class you could be making 6 figures.

    That’s what I figured. Fantasy forces you to analyze the entire league and watch everyone.

    Yea , fantasy has ruined how fans watch the games and follow teams rooting for players or teams they’d otherwise not be interested in.

    It’s a league based mainly on offensive key players individual stats and team defense .

    If an individual has great stats they could view him as a much more talented player than he actually helps their team win. It’s called Fantasy for a reason. Pure entertainment.

    Uhhh, hello Greg. You don't become valuable unless you've got talent.

    Plus, the title of this thread is stating Zeke is the best player on the team. Totally disagree. Dak is the best player.

    Same here, and Troy was underappreciated until we got to see first hand how hard it is to find a decent quarterback is.

    I don't see how. Martin is widely considered the best OG in the NFL. How is Dak better?

    I didn’t say he didn’t have talent. Just not the most talented at his position.

    Id argue Martin is the most talented at his position on the Cowboys. A perineal 1st team All Pro since his Rookie season.

    Even if that were true, Martin is like top 1 or 2.

    I did. :D Honestly, I cracked the 6 figures in my 20's, and realized life was easier without it. I prefer family, and time to spend with them.

    You’ll end up earning more in your lifetime than the majority of NFL players . And without all of the lingering body ailments.

    We can agree to disagree. I’d have taken the CB or the DE, if he’d been available, or traded back with that top-5 pick. And I’d have avoided having to overpay the RB position on a second contract and spent the money on defense. You can readily find a starting RB with a top-100 pick. There are other positions that are much harder to fill. It’s a better use of limited resources to spend premium draft capital on the rarer positions.

    That said, hitting on your draft picks is most important. We definitely hit on Zeke, at least.

    It is true, though. Zeke’s really valuable in pass protection. He’s an underrated threat in the passing game, too. Like I said, he’s an all around great player. We hit on the pick. That’s important. But the opportunity cost was the chance at hitting on a player at a much more valuable position. And the replacement cost on RB just isn’t that high.

    There are roles for TEs who can block and slot backs who can break tackles and impact the passing game on every team in the NFL. That isn’t an issue in Dallas just because we also committed to spending too much draft capital and cap on a RB.
