Cowboys | Justin Durant expected to be first-team MLB

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 12:11:00 -0700

Dallas Cowboys LB Justin Durant is expected to be the first-team middle linebacker when training camp begins. He took first-team snaps during minicamp and the majority of organized team activities, after LB Sean Lee (knee) was injured.

Fantasy Tip: If Durant is the Week 1 starter, there is late-round potential in IDP leagues. There will be plenty of tackling opportunities, and the Cowboys' defense could be on the field a lot.
