Dak Prescott - QBPosted 5/22/19 1:34pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott said his representatives have made a counter proposal after receiving an initial contract offer from the Cowboys. Prescott said he is not sure how close the two sides are at this point.
Huddle Up: Prescott is entering the final year of his contract and likely will sign an extension this offseason. He has posted decent numbers over the last several seasons and likely will be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2019.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 5/22/19 2:14pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has not received a contract extension offer at this point, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Elliott is under contract for two more seasons, so the Cowboys likely will try to sign Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper before they sign Elliott. He will continue to be a big piece of their offense and should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 5/21/19 9:13am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (core) underwent core-muscle surgery a few weeks ago, head coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday, May 21, and is being held out of OTAs.
Huddle Up: Beasley should recover in time for training camp and man the slot position for the Bills, but it remains a low-volume passing offense, and Beasley should go undrafted in all but the deepest of leagues.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 5/8/19 11:44am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has received an initial contact extension offer from the Cowboys, and the team is waiting for his counter offer, according to sources. The two sides are not believed to be close to any deal.
Huddle Up: Prescott likely will receive an extension at some point before the start of the season and should receive a lucrative deal. He has posted solid numbers over the last few seasons and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some leagues.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 5/7/19 9:15am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott and the team are reportedly working toward a contract extension that will approach $30 million annually, if not more, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Bolstered by the addition of WR Amari Cooper, Prescott found new fantasy life in the second half of last season and finished as a top-10 QB. He enters 2019 as a borderline QB1.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 5/4/19 2:11pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is a candidate for a contract extension, but executive vice president Stephen Jones said there is no timetable for an agreement.
Huddle Up: Elliott is under contract for two more seasons, so the Cowboys have other players they would like to sign before Elliott. He will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Cowboys and probably will be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 5/4/19 2:34pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott hopefully will sign a contract extension with the Cowboys before the start of the 2019 regular season, according to owner/general manager Jerry Jones and executive vice president Stephen Jones.
Huddle Up: Prescott was a solid fantasy option last season and will have a good group of pass catchers to work with this upcoming season. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback in leagues.
Tony Pollard - RBPosted 4/27/19 10:24am ET
Memphis RB Tony Pollard was selected by the Dallas Cowboys with the 128th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Pollard likely will not receive a lot of touches behind Ezekiel Elliott during his rookie season and can be avoided in standard leagues.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 4/24/19 5:09am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's fifth-year option was exercised Wednesday, April 24.
Huddle Up: Elliott is one of, if not the, best option at the position in fantasy.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 4/17/19 1:32pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's fifth-year option will be exercised this offseason, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.
Huddle Up: Elliott could receive a long-term deal at some point this offseason but will be under contract for at least two more seasons. He is one of the best running backs in NFL and will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 4/15/19 7:45am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will report for offseason conditioning Monday, April 12, despite his desire for a contract extension.
Huddle Up: His contract status has no bearing on his status as an elite RB1 in fantasy.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 4/8/19 4:51pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is a candidate for a contract extension this offseason, but executive vice president Stephen Jones said Prescott likely will need to agree to a team-friendly extension so the team can build around him. Jones said Prescott deserves to be paid fairly in his next contract.
Huddle Up: Prescott is one of several players the Cowboys need to sign to a contract extension. He posted solid numbers last season and will have a solid group of pass catchers to work with in 2019. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 3/30/19 10:16am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has not started contract extension talks with the Cowboys at this point, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Prescott is entering the final year of his contract, so he should receive an extension at some point this offseason. He will have a solid group of pass catchers to work with next season and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback or a strong No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
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.
