Dallas Cowboys news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 21 Oct 2016 10:40:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bryant has been out since Week 3 and figures to have a little bit of rust, so he's going to be hard to bench in fantasy. His pre-injury usage suggests he could be a bit hit-or-miss, but he should eventually settle in as a WR2 for as long as Dak Prescott is running the offense.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Romo will regain the starting job once he is ready to play again because Dak Prescott has played well in his absence. Owners will need to monitor the situation because Romo can be a No. 1 quarterback for owners if he is starting and is healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Guess what else is in question? If the starting job will be his when he returns. He's only worth stashing in two-quarterback leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Prescott has played himself into the low-end QB1 area universally. He should have Dez Bryant (knee) back for the game as well.

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) indicated his elbow is "feeling great" and is ready to go. With the team on Bye, McFadden won't practice this week, but he could return in the lead up to Week 8. Dallas will have 21 days from the time of his first practice to activate McFadden or place him on IR.
Fantasy Tip: With Ezekiel Elliot tearing up the NFL and Alfred Morris a steady backup it's hard to see what role McFadden will play on this team going forward. There were some previous rumblings that Run DMC could be dealt, but barring that unlikely scenario his fantasy value appears to be nil for the time being.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) underwent a CT scan Friday, Oct. 14, that showed the hairline fracture in his right leg is healing properly. Bryant is already on record that he'll back in the lineup against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: More good news for Bryant, who gets to enjoy the Cowboys' Bye week before having to suit up Sunday, Oct. 30. He's only had one good game this season, but unless you have tremendous depth at the position you'll likely want to plug Bryant into your Week 8 lineup simply based on upside.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) told NFL Network's Jane Slater as he was walking off the field Sunday, Oct. 16, that he intends to play against the Philadelphia Eagles. "(You) don't have to ask me anymore, I'm good," Bryant said. "I'm playing against Philly."
Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys have a bye in Week 7, and they'll face the Philadelphia Eagles Oct. 30. Bryant got off to a sluggish start before the injury and has now been off a few weeks. He'd be a risky WR2 against the Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Witten has yet to find the end zone in six outings, although he has managed 28 receptions in six games. He remains a decent low-end TE1, especially in PPR fantasy formats. The Cowboys are off in Week 7.
Sun, 16 Oct 2016 22:54:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Beasley has at least 53 yards in each of the past three games and he has three touchdowns during the span, making up somewhat for the loss of Dez Bryant. Beasley is worth using as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams until Bryant is healthy. The Cowboys are off in Week 7.

Dallas Cowboys rookie RB Ezekiel Elliott finished with 157 rushing yards in the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers. He has 703 yards rushing, second-most in a player's first six career games, behind only Hall of Famer RB Eric Dickerson (787). He is the only rookie to rush for at least 130 yards in four consecutive games.
Fantasy Tip: Elliott was drafted as a No. 1 fantasy tailback early on draft day and he has certainly looked the part. Fantasy owners are going to miss him in Week 7 when the team is on a bye.

Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott completed 18 of his 27 pass attempts for 247 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers. His NFL record streak for a quarterback at the start of his career without an interception ended at 176 pass attempts.
Fantasy Tip: Prescott has a 5-1 record as a starter while tossing seven touchdowns and running for three others. The Cowboys have an interesting decision coming once Tony Romo is deemed healthy and ready to return. Prescott has emerged as a decent low-end QB1 in deeper fantasy leagues.
Sun, 16 Oct 2016 12:34:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Witten has seen more targets lately but has not posted more than 47 yards in any of the last three games and has not found the end zone this season. He could be a flex option in some leagues, but owners probably will be able to find a better starting option.
