Cowboys | Minimal work for Lance Dunbar

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 12:46:05 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) was a part of pre-practice work Wednesday, June 1, before leaving for rehabilitation. Dunbar is still recovering from several torn ligaments in his knee. He could begin the 2016 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar really broke out last year, particularly in the passing game, before his gruesome injuries. If/when he does return to the field, he'll likely be behind Ezekiel Elliott, Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris, so Dunbar's fantasy value is almost non-existent right now.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar likely will be on PUP list

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 10:18:14 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) likely will be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list at some point next season.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar is working his way back from several torn ligaments in his knee and may not be ready for the start of the 2016 season. Dunbar likely will be a third-down back when he plays but likely will not have a lot of fantasy value.

Cowboys | No timetable for Lance Dunbar

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 14:12:52 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) doesn't know when he'll be able to return to action after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament and patella tendon last season. There is a chance Dunbar may not be healthy enough in time for the start of the regular season, and he could be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Fantasy Tip: It's no surprise that Dunbar has a lengthy rehabilitation with the severity of the injuries he went through. He proved his worth primarily as a pass-catching running back last season and is still worth a stash in PPR leagues even if he's not able to play right away.

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) just starting jogging and said there is no timeline for his return.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar re-signs with Cowboys

Thu, 17 Mar 2016 14:36:26 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar re-signed a one-year deal worth $1.75 million with the Cowboys Thursday, March 17, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys are widely speculated to take a running back early in this year's draft, but Dunbar returning gives them more depth behind the injury-prone Darren McFadden in case they don't. The fourth-year back had just five carries for 67 yards after tearing his ACL in Week 4, and he added 21 catches for 215 yards. Depending on what Dallas does at the position in the draft, Dunbar could be worth a late-round flyer in deeper leagues in PPR formats.

Bears | Lance Dunbar visiting Bears

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 06:41:36 -0700

Free-agent RB Lance Dunbar (Cowboys) is visiting the Chicago Bears Wednesday, March 16.

Fantasy Tip: The Bears are looking for someone to pair up with Jeremy Langford, and Dunbar was a miniature version of Matt Forte before he tore up his knee in Dallas. If he signs, and he's healthy, Dunbar could be a sneaky PPR flyer.

Seahawks | Seattle hosting Lance Dunbar

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 12:23:32 -0700

Free-agent RB Lance Dunbar (Cowboys) is visiting the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, March 13.

Fantasy Tip: A gaping hole was left in Seattle's backfield with Marshawn Lynch's retirement. Thomas Rawls is expected to fill most of that hole. In addition, Fred Jackson is a free agent and Dunbar could fill his role as Seattle's change-of-pace, pass-catching running back. Wherever Dunbar plays, he'll be a PPR sleeper, but not starter material.

49ers | Lance Dunbar to visit Thursday

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 14:17:41 -0800

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Lance Dunbar (Cowboys) is visiting the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, March 10.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar would essentially take over Reggie Bush's role in Chip Kelly's new offense. Dunbar was a valuable part of the Cowboys' offense before being injured last season. He'll have more value in PPR scoring formats wherever he signs.

49ers | Lance Dunbar to with San Fran

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 18:37:04 -0800

Free-agent RB Lance Dunbar (Cowboys) will visit with the San Francisco 49ers, a source said Wednesday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar might flourish in a Chip Kelly offense, as he has decent hands out of the backfield. Fantasy owners could find him to be quite the sleeper if that situation works out.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar placed on IR

Sat, 10 Oct 2015 08:35:38 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Oct. 10. The team also promoted WR Vince Mayle from the practice squad to their active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Darren McFadden ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Christine Michael ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will see more playing time with Dunbar out for the season. McFadden could be a flex option for owners because he could see more carries if Joseph Randle ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is not able to keep the starting job.
