Tavon Austin - WRPosted 3/14/19 9:31am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Tavon Austin has agreed to re-sign with the team, according to a source Thursday, March 14.
Huddle Up: Austin's return helps ease the loss of Cole Beasley, but he'll remain a deep-league fantasy flier in most leagues as his first season in Big D yielded only 14 touches, 195 yards from scrimmage and two TDs.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 3/12/19 9:48am ET
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley plans to sign a four-year contract with the Buffalo Bills worth $29 million, according to sources. The deal will include $14.4 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Beasley was one of the best slot receivers available and likely will be a reliable target for the Bills as a slot receiver. He has caught at least 50 passes in three of the last four seasons and has been targeted at least 60 times in all four of those seasons. He probably will be a low-end No. 3 receiver or a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 3/6/19 1:25pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten was officially signed to a one-year, $2 million contract Wednesday, March 6. Witten can make up to $5 million, however. The Cowboys had to release Witten from the Reserve/Retired list before making the signing official.
Huddle Up: Turning 37 years old this summer, Witten is no longer a viable fantasy tight end. He is expected to be on a snap count to boot. He also makes Blake Jarwin less appealing.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 3/3/19 8:17am ET
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley is reportedly seeking $20 million in guaranteed money, according to Calvin Watkins of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: The soon-to-be 30-year-old Beasley led the Cowboys in targets (87) and receptions (65) in 2018 and is worthy of consideration as a flier during the later rounds of PPR leagues next season, depending on his landing spot.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 3/2/19 6:32pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten will have a meaningful role in the offense, according to owner Jerry Jones.
Huddle Up: While Witten isn't expected to see a full workload, there's a good chance that he will be on the field in the red zone. He could be a touchdown-dependent TE2.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 3/1/19 9:29pm ET
The Dallas Cowboys and representatives for impending free-agent QB Dak Prescott met in Indianapolis at the NFL Scouting Combine looking to nail down a deal, or at least make progress on a new deal. He is expected to fetch at least $20 million per season.
Huddle Up: Prescott had yet to pass for 4,000 yards in the NFL, but the Cowboys are apparently enamored with his play. The team recently re-signed Jason Witten after one year in the broadcast booth, and they're working toward re-upping with Amari Cooper. If the team can add a couple of decent pieces in the pass game via the draft or free agency, Prescott could improve in 2019 and be a bona fide QB1 in fantasy leagues across the board.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 2/28/19 9:48am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley likely will test the market as an unrestricted free agent, but the Cowboys are still hoping they can re-sign him at the right price. 'Oh, we love Cole Beasley,' Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Thursday, Feb. 28. 'If you followed our football team the last few years you know the impact that he's made on our team. He's a great young man, and he's been a heck of a player for us, but you know the business of the NFL is challenging. There's a lot of different guys that you want to keep on our team, throughout the free agent process, and unfortunately when you have players like Cole Beasley, other teams want them, too. So we certainly want Cole Beasley back. Again, he's made a huge impact on our team. We want him with our team as we go forward for a long, long time, but business will creep into that on both sides. Hopefully we can get to a point where we can make a deal with him and some of these other guys where it works well for everybody and we keep moving forward.'
Huddle Up: Beasley led the team's wide receivers and tight ends with 87 targets and 65 receptions -- both the second-best single-season marks in his seven-year career -- but it sounds like he may generate WR4 fantasy intrigue in another uniform next season.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 2/28/19 10:20am ET
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten was lured out of retirement/broadcast booth by a one-year contract offer of nearly $5 million, a source said Thursday, Feb. 28.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 2/28/19 10:07am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten announced Thursday, Feb. 28, he is ending his retirement after one year in the broadcast booth and returning to play for the Cowboys for what would be his 16th season.
Huddle Up: Witten caught 63-of-87 targets for 560 yards and five TDs in his most recent season in 2017 to rank 10th among fantasy tight ends. And although the Cowboys missed his middle-of-the-field presence last season, Witten turns 37 in May and will be a TD-dependent TE2 fantasy option if he winds up playing in 2019.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 2/28/19 2:43pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten is expected to play around 25 snaps per game next season.
Huddle Up: Witten probably will see a handful of targets each game but will not be a great fantasy option for owners. He probably will be a No. 2 fantasy tight end at best next season.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 2/27/19 4:50pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott's agent is scheduled to meet with the Dallas Cowboys this week to talk about Prescott's next contract.
Huddle Up: Prescott has thrown for at least 22 touchdowns in each of the last three seasons and has thrown at least 3,600 in two of the last three seasons. He should have a solid group of receivers to work with in 2019 and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback or an elite No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 2/26/19 12:05pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Allen Hurns could take over as the slot receiver if impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley is not re-signed. Jones iterated that the Cowboys would like to retain Beasley.
Huddle Up: The entirety of the Dallas receiving corps last season was essentially Amari Cooper and a little bit of Michael Gallup. Hurns and Beasley disappointed, but Hurns in particular would make for a late-round flier if Beasley leaves.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 2/10/19 10:24am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott ranked ninth among quarterbacks with 305 rushing yards in 2018, and many have clamored for Prescott to run even more. But Super Bowl history shows having a strong rushing QBs may not be the formula for ultimate team success. In 53 seasons, only three Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks have had 300-yard rushing seasons during their title-winning campaigns.
Huddle Up: Prescott did finish 10th among fantasy QBs in large part due to his 305 rushing yards and six TDs, but it must be noted that Prescott had the bulk of his rushing yards (247) during the first half of the season when the Cowboys went 3-5. During the team's 7-1 second half, Prescott ran for only 58 yards, and that might convince the Cowboys going forward that Prescott doesn't necessarily need to run for the team to have success.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 2/8/19 9:58am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is seeking a contract extension this offseason as he enters the final year of his four-year rookie deal in 2019. 'I think the team knows how to pay what's deserved,' Prescott said last week before Super Bowl LIII, 'and pay those other people at the same time what's deserved without being frugal.'
Huddle Up: Prescott threw for a career-high 3,885 yards this past season and was significantly bolstered by the midseason trade acquisition of WR Amari Cooper. Look for Prescott to get that extension and big raise this offseason and be ranked as borderline QB1 this summer in fantasy drafts.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 1/28/19 5:37pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott may consider skipping offseason workouts if he does not receive a contract extension this offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Elliott has led the NFL in rushing in two of the last three seasons and has received 1,003 touches since 2016. He likely will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Cowboys in 2019 and should be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 1/24/19 10:11pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley could be a possible free-agent target for the Green Bay Packers, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, assuming the team does not retain WR Randall Cobb, who is also a free agent.
Huddle Up: It certainly seems like a return to Dallas is unlikely for Beasley, whose comments about the team's management on social media drew a swift rebuke, so the Packers do make some sense as none of their returning wideouts fit the traditional skill set of a slot receiver. Beasley has shown enough in spots to be worth tracking this offseason to see where he lands.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 1/22/19 2:13pm ET
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley claimed Tuesday, Jan. 22, that the Dallas front office encourages the coaching staff to get the football to certain players. 'I haven't been a huge priority in that regard. Maybe that will change but I'm not sure,' Beasley said.
Huddle Up: Beasley's frustrations are evident and understandable, although Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott and Michael Gallup are all bigger, more talented threats with the ball. Beasley does have a role to play and put together his second best season from a statistical standpoint. That being said, he's only a mid- to late-round PPR flier if he stays in Dallas.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 1/19/19 8:30pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's 77 catches in 2018 ranked 22nd in the NFL and were the fifth most among running backs.
Huddle Up: In addition to winning his second rushing title in three years, Elliott shattered his previous high in receptions by 45 catches. Even in PPR formats, he needs to be a top-five pick in 2019.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 1/12/19 8:38am ET
The Dallas Cowboys are optimistic that WR Cole Beasley (ankle) will be available for the Divisional Round playoff game versus the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Jan. 12, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Beasley was listed as questionable on the injury report despite not practicing at all during the week. Assuming that he is active, he should be viewed as a sneaky play in postseason fantasy games despite the tough matchup.
Blake Jarwin - TEPosted 1/12/19 8:52am ET
The Dallas Cowboys are optimistic that TE Blake Jarwin (ankle) will be available for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Jan. 12, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Jarwin had been listed as questionable on the injury report despite not practicing at all during the week. He can be viewed as a sneaky fantasy play in postseason games, just two weeks removed from a three-touchdown performance in the regular-season finale versus the New York Giants.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 1/12/19 3:30pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) will be active Saturday, Jan. 12, against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Beasley hasn't been much of a factor for the Cowboys for the most part. He could be counted on even less today coming off a sprained ankle. Starting him is playing with fire.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 1/12/19 8:23pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 20 of his 32 passes for 266 yards and a touchdown and rushed twice for three yards and another score in a 30-22 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 12.
Huddle Up: Prescott had a decent outing, but he just couldn't make enough throws to take down the Rams. He had some stronger outings down the stretch after the Cowboys acquired Amari Cooper, but Prescott looks like a fantasy backup heading into 2019.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 1/12/19 8:19pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 20 times for 47 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 19 yards in a 30-22 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 12.
Huddle Up: The matchup looked great on paper, but the Rams made sure not to let Elliott beat them. Although his season ends on a sour note, Elliott will remain the focal point of the Dallas offense heading into 2019, and he should be a top-five pick in all fantasy formats.
Michael Gallup - WRPosted 1/12/19 8:31pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup caught six of his nine targets for 119 yards in a 30-22 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 12.
Huddle Up: Gallup flashed his potential during his rookie year, and the next step will be developing some consistency. He should be a decent WR4 candidate when 2019 drafts roll around.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 1/12/19 10:34pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott finished 20-of-32 for 266 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Division Round against the Los Angeles Rams. He added two carries for three yards and another score.
Huddle Up: Prescott rounded into form this season once the Cowboys acquired Amari Cooper, but even that addition only made a middling starter for fantasy purposes. The 25-year-old is set to enter the final year of his rookie contract in 2019 coming off a career-high in passing yards (3,885), but the jury is still out as to whether or not he is a "franchise quarterback." Owners should consider him a QB2 whose upside is limited by an uncreative offense focused around Ezekiel Elliott.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 1/11/19 10:19am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) is listed as questionable for the the team's divisional-playoff game Saturday, Jan. 12, in Los Angeles, but owner Jerry Jones is optimistic the slot wideout will be able to play. 'My feeling right now is to play with Cole Beasley,' Jones told 105.3 FM The Fan in an interview Friday. 'He's given every indication he can force himself through it. Right now, we're planning on having Cole Beasley.'
Huddle Up: Beasley has had at least three receptions in each of his last four games, but if he can't go or is limited, look for more targets for WRs Michael Gallup and Tavon Austin.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 1/10/19 9:19am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) is uncertain to practice Thursday, Jan. 10, and if he does, head coach Jason Garrett says he'll be limited.
Huddle Up: Beasley was limited to 31 snaps in the wild-card win over the Seahawks, catching all three of his targets for 28 yards, but if he is unable to practice Thursday on what would be a Friday during a normal week, it will be best not to count on him playing Saturday night on L.A.
Blake Jarwin - TEPosted 1/10/19 9:35am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin (ankle) is uncertain to practice Thursday, Jan. 10, as he deals with an ankle injury. Head coach Jason Garrett says if Jarwin does practice, he will be limited.
Huddle Up: Jarwin has yet to practice this week, and time is running short with the Cowboys traveling and playing Saturday night in L.A. If Jarwin can't get on the practice field Thursday, have serious doubt about his availability Saturday.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 1/10/19 11:23am ET
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) missed practice Thursday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: Beasley is turning into a more pronounced question mark for the divisional round. If he can't play or if his snaps are limited then Michael Gallup would ideally see more looks. He's a sneaky play anyway even in a tough matchup versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Blake Jarwin - TEPosted 1/10/19 1:53pm ET
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin (ankle) was not able to practice Thursday, Jan. 10, and is questionable.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys don't rely heavily on tight ends, but Jarwin can be a difference maker. If he ends up as inactive then Dalton Schultz and Noah Brown should benefit most after Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott and Michael Gallup.
