The Dallas Cowboys have surprisingly emerged as a legitimate postseason contender in recent weeks in large part due to the incredible play of Amari Cooper and Ezekiel Elliott. However, just how much of a factor Cooper and Elliott have been in the Cowboys' recent success cannot be understated.

Cooper and Elliott have absolutely unstoppable over their past three games, racking up an incredible 940 total yards combined between the two. While that's impressive by itself, the two have actually outgained a third of the teams in the league during that span. 

The fact that the two have outgained New Orleans really puts into perspective how dynamic the pair has been.

That kind of production should come as no surprise for anyone who owns either player in their fantasy leagues. Cooper has seen at least eight targets in each of the past three games while Elliott has touched the ball at least 29 times during the same span. 

The Cowboys still have to lock up the NFC East and will need to lean on Cooper and Elliott to do so. That being said, there's a very good chance either player could carry you to a fantasy league championship when it's all said and done.
