Dallas Cowboys news, rumors and injuries

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott said Wednesday, Sept. 28, that he is feeling "way more comfortable" in the team's offense than he did back in his debut. "I'm a very improved player since Week 1," Elliott said.
Fantasy Tip: Elliott has looked a lot better, and he shined in the primetime game against the Chicago Bears in Week 3, rolling for 140 yards (his first 100-yard game) and also a career-best 20 receiving yards. As long as he can nip his fumbling issues in the bud, he will be a legitimate RB1 in fantasy leagues for many years to come.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) missed team meetings Tuesday, Sept. 27, and he was fined by the team for missing a scheduled MRI, multiple sources said Wednesday, Sept. 28. The amount of the fine is undisclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Bryant has a hairline fracture in his knee, and is a question mark heading into Week 4. However, it's unlikely he'll face further discipline from the team regarding his absence Tuesday. Fantasy owners will still want to see him practice in full before pulling the trigger on him for the active lineup.

Dallas Cowboys OG La'el Collins (toe), LB Andrew Gachkar (neck), QB Tony Romo (back) and OT Tyron Smith (back) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28. DE Jack Crawford (shoulder), OT Doug Free (quadriceps), FS Jeff Heath (knee), LB Mark Nzeocha (Achilles') and CB Orlando Scandrick (hamstring) were limited during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant is dealing with a hairline fracture in his knee and is considered questionable for Week 4. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during the week. He will be a risky option if he is active for the game, and owners should have other options ready if Bryant is ruled out.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) has a hairline fracture in his knee, but head coach Jason Garrett hopes Bryant will be able to play against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4. Bryant is considered day-to-day at this point.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation this week to see if Bryant will be able to play in Week 4. He probably would receive limited snaps if he is active for the game, which would make him a risky option. Owners will need a backup plan ready in case Bryant is ruled out. Dak Prescott's fantasy value would take a hit if Bryant is not able to play, but it would help the value of Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams and Jason Witten. Ezekiel Elliott could also be a more attractive option since the team could run the ball more.

Fantasy Tip: No. 88 has been a disappointment through three weeks, and his knee was torqued in an ugly way. He was supposed to have an MRI Monday, but two days later there is still no word on his status. His health makes him a risky WR3 in fantasy this week.

Updating previous reports, OG La'el Collins (foot) will now rest his injured toe and undergo treatment for the next two weeks before deciding whether or not to undergo surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has been an afterthought the first three weeks, but he'll have a ripe matchup against the San Francisco 49ers this week. He's a low-end WR2 if the knee checks out.

Fantasy Tip: The only thing missing was a paydirt trot, but it was a solid effort and showed he's capable of being a workhorse. He faces off against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4, and he'll be in the high-end RB2 area.
