Dallas Cowboys: Top 10 players after Week 4
One of the team’s highest-profile players dropped out, while one of the guys with a low profiles made the top 10 for the first time.
Each week, during the season, I rank my top 10 players on the roster based on their performances this season.
1. Sean Lee: The Cowboys’ most consistent player. Each week he brings it at the highest level possible. A team-high 14 tackles against the Bears.
Last Week: 3
2. DeMarcus Ware: Another sack and forced fumble, but not enough impact against a mediocre left tackle such as JaMarcus Webb.
Last Week: 1
Anthony Spencer: If you don’t think the Cowboys missed him, then look at some of Victor Butler's work against the Bears’ running game.
Last Week: 2
4. Miles Austin: Jason Garrett must find a way to target him more often, regardless of the double coverage he gets. He has three touchdowns in four games.
Last Week: 8
5. Bruce Carter: He showed some toughness by returning after a hip pointer with some help from a pain-killing injection.
Last Week: 5
6. Brandon Carr: Torched by Brandon Marshall. For now, consider it an aberration.
Last Week: 4
7. DeMarco Murray: He has 104 yards on 41 carries in the last three games and has been dropped for a loss 11 times. If he wasn’t terrific, the numbers would be even worse.
Last Week: 7
8. Jason Hatcher: Two tackles and was one of the reasons the Bears averaged just 3.3 yards per carry on 29 attempts.
Last Week: 10
9. Sean Lissemore: Finished with four tackles and helped anchor the middle of the defensive line.
Last Week: 9
10. Brian Moorman: What a great first impression after signing with the Cowboys last week. He dropped two of his three punts inside the 10 and Devin Hester had one return for eight yards.
Last Week: 6
