The Dallas Cowboys' 2020 campaign was a disaster, but that might've had more to do with injuries than anything else. Quarterback Dak Prescott famously missed most of the season, but that's far from the whole story.

Stud offensive linemen like Tyron Smith, La'el Collins and Zack Martin missed a combined 36 games last year, with Collins missing the entire season and Smith only suiting up for two games.

But thankfully, Stephen Jones revealed that all three are recovering and appear on track to start in Week 1.

The importance of this cannot be understated. Smith and Martin have combined to make a whopping 13 Pro Bowls throughout their careers. While Collins may not get the recognition that his peers do, he earned a stellar 86.4 overall grade from ProFootballFocus the last time he took the field. That was good for the fifth-best mark among all tackles in 2019.

Once again running behind a healthy offensive line, Ezekiel Elliott's 2020 struggles could be a thing of the past. And Prescott should be able to stay upright with those three paving the way.

Finally getting healthy, the Cowboys are currently favored to win the NFC East (+105) on FanDuel Sportsbook.
