The list had Dak Prescott at the top. This was a fairly surprising mention, as not many people outside Dallas are that high on Prescott. Dak Prescott was followed by Panthers star Christian McCaffrey. McCaffrey has missed significant time due to injuries, and that has played a huge factor in people thinking he is overrated.

The list also had Giants RB Saquon Barkley and two other Los Angeles Chargers players; Khalil Mack and Derwin James Jr. also made the list made by Chris Canty.

Not many people would agree with the players that Chris Canty had on this list. Dak Prescott had a decent season last year, as he was coming back from a serious injury.

Christian McCaffrey looked great whenever he played last season, and Saquon Barkley is arguably the best player on the current New York Giants team. Khalil Mack has also strengthened the Chargers’ defense, and it’s very likely that it will help Derwin James Jr. also.

Dak Prescott will be the key to the chances of the Dallas Cowboys next season

Dak Prescott will have a great chance to shut all his critics up. Last season, he took a step in the right direction after coming back from a serious injury. He will be heading into the upcoming season while having a healthy offseason behind him.

As a result, he is likely to have a great season for the Dallas Cowboys. His team has high aspirations every year, and they largely depend on his performance. Prescott would like to show the world why they gave him such a lucrative contract.

Moreover, other players on that list also have a point to prove. Both Saquon Barkley and Christian McCaffrey are elite talents. If they are able to stay healthy, there is no denying they’ll have a huge role to play in their teams’ fortunes.
