Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 10/17/17 12:17pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott and the rest of the NFL will know his fate by the end of Tuesday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: One would imagine all parties involved will at least be relieved when the situation comes to a close, either way. If Elliott is indeed suspended then Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris are immediate high-end waiver wire pickups with McFadden possessing more upside in PPR formats.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 10/17/17 4:51pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott was given his temporary restraining order against the NFL Tuesday, Oct. 17. His pending suspension is now delayed two weeks or until further proceedings.
Huddle Up: Elliott is safe for now, again, but this whole situation has been a wobbly teeter totter. Elliott may eventually be suspended in 2017, but it looks like he'll be able to play at least the next two weeks, so make sure he's back in those starting lineups. The Darren McFadden and/or Alfred Morris hype trains are on stand by for a while.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 10/16/17 6:01pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott seeking a temporary restraining order to postpone his six-game suspension, and lawyers from the NFL Players Association have filed paperwork with the U.S. District Court on behalf of Elliott.
Huddle Up: Elliott is currently suspended but would be able to play in Week 7 if he receives the restraining order. Owners should continue to monitor the situation and will need other options available in case Elliot is not allowed to play.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 10/13/17 4:18pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's lawyers plan to file a rehearing of Elliott's case in front of the 5th Circuit Court of appeals. They could ask the full panel of judges in the 5th United States Court of Appeals in New Orleans to hear the appeal of Elliott's six-game suspension. His lawyers may also ask that Elliott's suspension be stayed until the appeal is heard.
Huddle Up: Elliott's status for Week 7 is still uncertain because of the court case, so owners should follow the situation over the next week. He is a must-start option if he plays, but Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden will be valuable fantasy options if Elliott has to serve his suspension.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 10/13/17 6:37pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden is the likely starter if RB Ezekiel Elliott begins serving his suspension, according to Bryan Broaddus of DallasCowboys.com.
Huddle Up: Alfred Morris has been the No. 2 back this year, but McFadden has shown he can deliver in the lead role. Both backs deserved to be owned at this point, but both would be risky plays until they have a chance to perform without Elliott.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 10/12/17 2:00pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension was reinstated by the 5th circuit court of appeals Thursday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris will likely split touches out of the Cowboys' backfield for the next six weeks. McFadden has more fantasy upside, especially when considering PPR scoring. Morris is more suited for short-yardage and goal-line situations, but McFadden is the priority waiver-wire pickup if available.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 10/9/17 4:41am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten caught eight of his 10 targeted passes for 61 yards in a 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: It was a better performance than last week, when Witten was held to one catch. Still, QB Dak Prescott has so many targets on the field you have to wonder how Witten will do. He remains a decent TE1 option moving forward, but keep an eye on his matchups.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 10/9/17 4:32am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ran 29 times for 116 yards in a 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: This may be the last you see of Elliott for a while, pending a ruling on his six-game suspension. If this is it, Elliott went out with a strong performance. Be prepared to shelve him anyway for the coming week as it is a bye. Elliott remains a strong RB1 candidate as long as he is on the field.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 10/9/17 4:27am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott threw 25-for-36 for 251 yards and three touchdowns Sunday, Oct. 8, in a 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Prescott was also picked off once.
Huddle Up: Prescott has six touchdowns in his past two games, which keeps him on the low-end QB1 scale heading into Week 7. The Cowboys own a bye in Week 6.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 10/9/17 4:50am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley caught four passes for 23 yards and scored two touchdowns in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Beasley's value improves in games like this one. Green Bay's defense targeted WR Dez Bryant, leaving more opportunities for lower-end wideouts to pick up the slack. Beasley may be more effective in these type of matchups. He remains a solid WR3/WR4 candidate.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 10/9/17 4:46am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant caught five passes for 52 yards and scored a touchdown in a 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: Bryant's targets were down from a week ago, as he was targeted eight times as opposed to 13 in Week 4. That was likely a by-product of the Green Bay defense shadowing Bryant. Still, it was a good outing and Bryant remains a solid candidate to find the end zone.
Brice Butler - WRPosted 10/9/17 4:43am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Brice Butler caught two passes for 57 yards in a 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: Butler was held to 12 yards and a touchdown the week before. It was a better effort, but QB Dak Prescott has so many receiving targets to pick from it's hard to tell how Butler will do from week to week. Avoid using him as a regular unless someone else gets hurt and Butler takes a bigger role.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 10/6/17 2:24pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (chest) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 6, and he was removed from the injury report for Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Elliott is a safe play for Sunday's game against the Pack. Enjoy him, as next week there is a bye and then fantasy owners will have to play the waiting game with his playing status to be determined by a three-judge panel, perhaps during the bye week.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 10/5/17 3:53pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (chest) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.
Huddle Up: Elliott should receive his normal workload against the Green Bay Packers and will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 10/4/17 4:00pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (chest) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.
Huddle Up: Elliott should be ready to play as long as his suspension is not reinstated before the game. He has rushed for at least 80 yards and one touchdown in each of the last two games and should be a No. 1 running back against the Green Bay Packers.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 10/3/17 11:36am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Ezekiel Elliott will have his playing status determined soon by a three-judge panel from the 5th United States Circuit Court of Appeal. There is no official timeline, although a decision might come as early as this week and is expected to be made by next week when the team has a bye.
Huddle Up: Elliott's status for Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers is not in question, but his status for Week 7 and beyond remains rather murky. He is coming off his biggest fantasy outing of the season against the Rams and will look to continue against the Pack, a team allowing 111.0 yards per game on the ground.
Terrance Williams - WRPosted 10/1/17 5:24pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams racked up four receptions for 34 yards on six targets in the Week 4 game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Williams has managed at least three receptions in each of his four outings, but he is still only worth using in deeper PPR formats as a WR4 due to his lack of big yardage totals and touchdowns. The Cowboys host the Packers in Week 5.
Brice Butler - WRPosted 10/1/17 5:24pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Brice Butler posted two receptions for 12 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Butler managed just two of the 27 targets directed toward Dallas wideouts, so that tells you all you need to know about his fantasy value. Despite the touchdown, avoid him in Week 5 against Green Bay.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 10/1/17 5:23pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten posted just one grab for nine yards on two targets in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: It was a very disappointing game for Witten, as fantasy owners expected big things against a leaky Rams pass defense. What's worse, fantasy owners had to endure seeing James Hanna celebrating a 28-yard touchdown instead of Witten on the highlights. Witten will look to get on track in Week 5 against the Packers.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 10/1/17 5:22pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant hauled in five receptions for 98 yards in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Bryant would have had an even bigger day if he and his quarterback connected more. Dak Prescott targeted him 13 times in the loss. He remains a solid WR2 heading into Week 5 against the visiting Packers.
Alfred Morris - RBPosted 10/1/17 5:22pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris rushed twice in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams, once for six yards and another time for a 70-yard scamper.
Huddle Up: The big run was nice, but no one is using Morris for fantasy purposes, nor should they look to do so in the short term. Despite the big yardage total, Morris is best left to the waiver wire unless Ezekiel Elliott is forced to miss time.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 10/1/17 5:21pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 21 times for 85 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams and he added four receptions for 54 yards and a score on five targets.
Huddle Up: This is the Zeke fantasy owners have been waiting for, as it was truly his first big game of the season after a couple of duds. He'll look to keep it going in the right direction in Week 5 when the Packers pay a visit.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 10/1/17 5:12pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 20 of his 36 pass attempts for 252 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams. He added three runs for 25 yards.
Huddle Up: Prescott has tossed two or more touchdowns in each of the past three games and he ran for one other. While his yardage totals are just OK, he has emerged as a useful low-end QB1 in all fantasy leagues from week to week. The Cowboys host the Packers in Week 5.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 9/25/17 10:21pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott had an efficient game Monday, Sept. 25, against the Arizona Cardinals, completing 13-of-18 passes for 183 yards and racking up two touchdown tosses compared to zero interceptions. He also ran three times for 16 yards, picking up a rushing touchdown in the process as well.
Huddle Up: With so few pass attempts Monday night, the numbers may not jump out right away but it was actually a very solid showing overall for the second-year signal-caller. It was also the most fantasy points Prescott has produced in a game this season. Hopefully his owners will get more performances like this one that are reminiscent of his fantastic rookie campaign of a year ago.
Brice Butler - WRPosted 9/25/17 10:35pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Brice Butler set a new career high with 90 receiving yards in the team's Week 3 win Monday, Sept. 25, opposite the Arizona Cardinals, doing so on two receptions. He also scored a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Those catches were also the only targets Butler saw for the evening, meaning owners shouldn't overreact to this rare performance. The five-year veteran would need an injury or two within the receiving corps to become relevant in fantasy leagues.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 9/25/17 10:34pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott registered 22 rushes for 80 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 3 win Monday, Sept. 25, against the Arizona Cardinals. He also added three receptions for 14 yards.
Huddle Up: It was the first rushing touchdown of the campaign for the former Ohio State Buckeye. Elliott's numbers through the first three games leave a little bit to be desired, but this was a nice bounce-back effort following last week's disastrous showing in Denver. He'll continue to be a strong RB1 option no matter what defense he's opposing.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 9/25/17 10:41pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant managed only two catches for 12 yards in the team's Week 3 victory Monday, Sept. 25, against the Arizona Cardinals. He did, however, get into the end zone for the second time this season.
Huddle Up: This was a rare off night for the former first-round draft pick, as he was targeted just twice by Dak Prescott all game. In his defense, the Cowboys only dialed up 18 pass attempts, so don't expect another low-volume game from Bryant like this one any time soon. Despite the lackluster stat line, Bryant can still be viewed as a WR1 for all formats.
Terrance Williams - WRPosted 9/23/17 6:46am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (ankle) was added to the injury report after not practicing Friday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: Regardless of his availability for Week 3's contest against the Arizona Cardinals, Williams should be nowhere near your fantasy starting lineups. He is arguably the Cowboys' fifth-best option in the passing game right now, behind Dez Bryant, Cole Beasley, Jason Witten and Ezekiel Elliott.
Terrance Williams - WRPosted 9/23/17 3:10pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (ankle) is listed as questionable for the team's Week 3 game.
Huddle Up: Williams has recorded 10 catches and 85 yards in the first two games and will continue to start opposite Dez Bryant. Owners in most leagues probably will be able to find better options, but Williams could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 9/22/17 5:09pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been cleared to play in the next two games after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th District set a Oct. 2 court date for the case involving his six-game suspension.
Huddle Up: Elliott was limited to eight yards against the Denver Broncos last week and will be facing an Arizona Cardinals rush defense that ranks in the top-10 in the NFL. Elliott should have more success in Week 3 and can be a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy running back for owners this week.
