Cole Beasley - WRPosted 6/14/17 12:59pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (hamstring) said he has been dealing with his hamstring injury since Week 10 of the 2016 season. He said he would be able to play in a game now if needed and believes rest will heal the injury.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Beasley's status at the start of training camp to see if he has recovered from the injury. He was a tremendous slot receiver for the Cowboys in 2016 and finished the season with 833 yards and five touchdowns. He probably should be considered a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 6/8/17 7:13pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Ryan Switzer said WR Dez Bryant is his go-to guy for advice, and he is trying to emulate Bryant's ability to pull down contested catches.
Huddle Up: Switzer's biggest contributions in 2017 could come on special teams, but he has the potential to be a dangerous weapon from the slot. You can probably leave him on the waiver wire in redraft leagues, but Switzer should be stashed in all dynasty formats.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 6/1/17 9:13pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant said the way that he's feeling right now has led him to believe that he's 'not dealing with really anything.' He added: 'I feel damn good. I know once I'm 100 (percent), I'm hard to deal with. That confidence is just steady expanding. I'll tell you this, I've never been (more) ready for training camp.'
Huddle Up: Bryant has missed 10 games over the last two seasons due to various injuries, but it looks like he'll be entering the new campaign with a clean bill of health for the first time in awhile. If Bryant can avoid landing on the shelf, he has a very good chance of returning to the form that allowed him to notch 85-plus catches, 1,200-plus receiving yards and double-digit touchdowns in three consecutive seasons. In other words, he'll have as high a ceiling as anyone at his position.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 6/1/17 1:18pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's domestic violence case could be resolved soon as phone records and other documents were recently turned over to investigators, according to sources. Closure to the case could come before the regular season commences, but the NFL has simply stated that its investigation is ongoing.
Huddle Up: The ramifications of Elliott's case have yet to be determined, but the hope is that either way it will be finalized before the start of the regular season. After taking the league by storm last year, Elliott is already one of the league's best running backs and deserves consideration as one of the first five picks in fantasy drafts.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 5/26/17 11:19am ET
Dallas Cowboys fourth-round pick WR Ryan Switzer is getting first-team reps in the slot while WR Cole Beasley is dealing hamstring soreness. However, while head coach Jason Garrett has made it clear while Switzer was drafted in part for his ability to back up Beasley, the Cowboys are working on packages for both to be on the field at the same time to take advantage of mismatches. '(Switzer) has a similar game (to Beasley), but he has his own things. We would really like those two guys to be able to complement each other and run real similar route trees. ? His role is significant. ? He complements Beasley and also gives us some big-time needed depth at that position,' Garrett said.
Huddle Up: Beasley is coming off a career-high 75-catch season and figures to remain the top slot option for at least this season, but the heat will be on. Switzer is a dynamic return man and possesses more talent, so it may only be a matter of time before their roles are reversed. While Beasley is easily the better redraft option in 2017, Switzer is the better long-term use of a roster spot in dynasty.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 5/24/17 9:45am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (head) will not participate in OTAs after he suffered a head injury as a passenger in a minor car accident Sunday, May 21.
Huddle Up: ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier Elliott did not suffer any significant injuries, so this appears to be a precautionary move on the Cowboys' part. Nevertheless, Elliott cannot seem to stay out of the news, as he is still under investigation by the league for allegedly assaulting an ex-girlfriend last summer. Barring another injury or an unexpected turn in the assault case, he should be considered an elite fantasy RB1, but future off-field troubles could easily result in him dropping out of the first five picks in drafts.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 5/24/17 12:42pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (head) is expected to participate in organized team activities next week, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
Huddle Up: Elliott could be limited during practice for the next week or two but should be fine for the June minicamp. He was one of the top running backs in the NFL as a rookie and should see a similar workload in 2017. Elliott should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 5/24/17 1:22pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (hamstring) has not been able to participate in organized team activities this week because of a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Beasley likely will not do much during offseason workouts but should be ready for training camp at the latest. He was a big part of the passing game this past season with 75 receptions, 855 receiving yards and five touchdowns. Beasley should have a similar role in the offense in 2017 and can be a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 5/24/17 8:53pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has emerged as a more vocal leader entering his second season, and quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson recently said he?s seen nothing from Prescott that should worry anyone about the reigning rookie of the year taking his foot off the gas. 'There has been no complacency at all. Nothing is too big for that kid. He?s improved strength-wise, flexibility-wise, speed-wise, quickness-wise, so he?s not resting on anything that went on last year,' Wilson said.
Huddle Up: Prescott never did look like a rookie in 2016, so we shouldn't be all that surprised he seems to be ahead of the curve entering his second year either. The Cowboys will remain a run-oriented offense, but there's really no reason to believe Prescott can't continue to perform at the fantasy QB1 level he did for the bulk of last season.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 5/22/17 2:27pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott remains under investigation for an incident he was allegedly part of in July, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: How soon the investigation remains to be seen. Barring any punishment from the NFL or the Cowboys, Elliott remains a top-three fantasy running back and should be selected early in the first round.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 5/8/17 8:45pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott said he is working on 'becoming a more dominant second-level runner' heading into his second season. 'I think there were a couple times last season where I could've been (better) on certain runs when I got to the second level,' he added. 'So just kinda focused on finishing my runs and making guys miss at the second level.'
Huddle Up: It's interesting that Elliott believes he has to be better at the second level of his runs, considering he led the league in his rookie campaign in rushes of at least 20 or more yards, registering 14 such instances. He also had the second-most runs of 40 or more yards, accomplishing this feat three times. Elliott had a monster first season in the NFL and based on his attitude, he may top that for an encore in his sophomore year.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 4/15/17 7:55pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott said Saturday, April 15, he expects things to be harder in his sophomore season. 'The defenses have had more looks at me, so they're going to throw things at me,' Prescott said. 'I'm ready for all of it. I'm excited for the challenge.'
Huddle Up: Prescott has the weapons around him to build on his impressive rookie season. Grab him as a low-end QB1.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/4/17 5:26am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo decided to retire Tuesday, April 4, to pursue a career in broadcasting, according to sources. Dallas is expected to designate Romo a post-June 1 release, softening the blow against the Cowboys' cap this season. Instead of counting $24.7 million in 2017, Romo would count $10.7 million this year and $8.9 million in 2018. The Cowboys would gain $14 million in cap space, but it would not become available until June 2.
Huddle Up: Romo could still wind up returning in an emergency situation if a starting quarterback goes down in camp. While you should remove him from your draft boards, he could re-emerge as a QB2 later.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/4/17 10:55am ET
Updating a previous report, the Dallas Cowboys will release retired QB Tony Romo as a post-June 1 cut, according to a source.
Huddle Up: This is a formality for Dallas, but it does at least leave the door cracked open for Romo to freely sign with a team of his choosing. It would be a dramatic twist to this saga, and an unlikely one at that.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/4/17 12:16pm ET
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo was officially released Tuesday, April 4.
Huddle Up: The Dallas Cowboys are officially Dak Prescott's team to quarterback, as if that was a question anyway. The Denver Broncos and Houston Texans, the two teams most heavily linked to Romo, will stick with their quarterbacks, at least for the time being. No Denver or Houston quarterback, however, is in QB1 territory.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/4/17 7:20pm ET
Retired NFL QB Tony Romo officially accepted a job with CBS Sports Tuesday, April 4, to be their lead television analyst for the upcoming year. He'll work alongside Jim Nantz on the station's No. 1 broadcast team.
Huddle Up: This should immediately put to rest any thoughts that maybe Romo would change his mind about retiring and latch on elsewhere. Fantasy owners can officially take the 11-year veteran off their list of potential draft day targets.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/3/17 12:52pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has been given permission by owner Jerry Jones to speak with other teams, according to a source. Romo or his agent can schedule a workout, visit or physical with any prospective team. Furthermore, interested teams are only limited to conversations regarding Romo's 2017-19 contract.
Huddle Up: The wheels are finally starting to turn for Romo to possibly play for someone other than the Cowboys. The Houston Texans and Denver Broncos are the two most favored teams to court Romo, but nothing is set in stone. Even if he does sign with someone, his health is a major question mark. Tread carefully in fantasy drafts as he has only played in five games the last two years.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/3/17 4:30pm ET
The Houston Texans will not trade for Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo even though the Cowboys have allowed Romo to talk with other teams, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Texans likely do not want to take on Romo's contract and will wait for him to be released before they pursue him. He probably would be the team's starting quarterback in 2017 if he joins the Texans and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/3/17 4:37pm ET
The Denver Broncos will not trade for Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo even though the Cowboys have allowed Romo to talk with other teams, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Broncos have said they are happy with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch on their roster and may not pursue Romo even if he is a free agent. Siemian and Lynch are expected to compete for the starting job during training camp, but the winner of the job probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/31/17 12:01pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo should have a good idea regarding his status with the Cowboys by April 17 - the start of the team's offseason workout program - according to former sports agent and CBS Sports' Joel Corry.
Huddle Up: Team owner and general manager Jerry Jones stated earlier in the week he anticipates a resolution with Romo before the start of training camp in late July, which is most likely posturing on his end. It seems much more likely he'll be released closer to Corry's projected date than Jones', if only so all parties involved can avoid the awkwardness of the situation. The Houston Texans remain Romo's most likely suitor, assuming he doesn't end up taking a network job.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 3/28/17 8:17am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten signed a four-year extension through 2021 Tuesday, March 28.
Huddle Up: Witten had a 69-673-3 season last year and turns 35 in May. He's still a solid PPR receiver, but his yardage and scoring numbers leave a bit to be desired. He's a top-end TE2 with the potential for a splash week or two.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/28/17 5:12pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will know his fate by training camp at the latest, according to owner Jerry Jones. Jones said he has talked to Romo in the last couple of days, saying the veteran quarterback 'has options.'
Huddle Up: It's somewhat of a cryptic message from Jones, but Romo's options are essentially that he will be cut or traded and play for another team or simply retire. He is not expected to remain with the Cowboys. Romo has QB1 potential when he is healthy, but he has only played in five games in the last two seasons. He's just too risky to be drafted at this point, especially considering his ambiguous future.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/27/17 3:42pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo's status with the Cowboys may not be resolved until after the 2017 NFL Draft, in the opinion on NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: The Houston Texans appear to be the most likely candidate for Romo if he decides to continue his playing career. He would be the starting quarterback if he joins the Texans and would have some nice weapons to work with on offense. He could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season if he is healthy.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/27/17 3:56pm ET
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said it is not the team's intention to pursue Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo even if he is released this offseason.
Huddle Up: The Broncos seem to be happy with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch as their options at quarterback in 2017. Both players received starts this past season and likely will compete for the job during training camp. The winner of the competition probably can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/24/17 1:53pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo believes the Houston Texans and retirement are his options next season if he is released by the Cowboys, according to sources. The Denver Broncos are not pursing Romo, but they are not ruling out the possibility of signing him.
Huddle Up: Romo is still part of the Cowboys at this point, but he likely will be released at some point this offseason. He would be the starting quarterback if he joins the Texans and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2017 if he plays for Houston.
Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 3/23/17 6:08pm ET
Free-agent QB Mark Sanchez (Cowboys) is finalizing a deal with the Chicago Bears Thursday, March 23, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Sanchez will serve as the backup to the unproven Mike Glennon, so it is possible Sanchez makes some starts. Even in that scenario, he wouldn't hold any fantasy value.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 3/18/17 7:58pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been advised by his representatives that he won't be punished under the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy as it relates to an incident last July, according to beat writer Clarence Hill.
Huddle Up: The league's investigation hasn't officially been closed, so a punishment of some sort could still be handed down. That being said, he should still be one of the first players off the board in all formats in 2017.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/13/17 12:31pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has not been discussed by the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Vance Joseph. General manager John Elway and Joseph have both emphasized that they are comfortable with QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch as their quarterbacks.
Huddle Up: The Broncos do, or did, make sense for Romo, but it also makes sense to stick with what they have in Siemian and Lynch. Siemian figures to begin offseason activities as the starter, but Lynch won't be the backup without a fight. That being said, neither is a starting fantasy quarterback as of now.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/11/17 6:54pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is not expected to be traded, according to league sources, and Dallas is not willing to trade Romo somewhere he doesn't want to play.
Huddle Up: Romo is likely to be released if a trade isn't worked out, so he could still end up starting for another team in 2017.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/10/17 6:39pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is not guaranteed to be pursued by the Denver Broncos, even if Romo becomes a free agent.
Huddle Up: Romo's fate remains up in the air, but he is still expected to be the starter somewhere in 2017. He is injury prone, but he has QB1 upside. Grab him as a fantasy backup if you have a stable QB1.
