Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 6/25/19 6:19am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is unlikely to get an extension in 2019 or next offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Dan Graziano. Elliott's option for 2020 is worth $9.099 million, and the team feels good about franchise tag numbers on him in 2021.
Huddle Up: Elliott remains one of the best options at the position in the first round of drafts.
Michael Gallup - WRPosted 6/20/19 7:43pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup believes improved chemistry with QB Dak Prescott will result in consistent big plays down the field. 'I think we've got a better feel for each other and where I'm going to be and everything,' Gallup said. 'I'm pretty excited about that part.'
Huddle Up: With Amari Cooper as the go-to option and Randall Cobb now manning the slot, Gallup will likely serve as a downfield weapon. That role isn't exactly conducive to consistent production, making Gallup a big-play dependent WR4 option in fantasy circles.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 6/14/19 10:47am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott and his agent Todd France/CAA have extended a contract proposal to the team that would have Prescott earning close to $34 million annually, according to a source with knowledge of the negotiations.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys have said they want to get a deal done with the QB, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract, but it seems unlikely Prescott will -- or should -- reset the market for quarterback pay. In the meantime, though, Prescott could be a fantasy steal if you can get him at mid-level QB2 pricetag in drafts.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 6/8/19 1:24pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has been talking to the Cowboys about a contract extension, but the two sides are not close at this point.
Huddle Up: Prescott likely will be looking for something similar to Carson Wentz's extension, and the Cowboys have a few months if they want to sign Prescott to an extension before the start of the regular season. Prescott posted solid numbers last season and will have a good group of pass catchers to work with in 2019. He can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 6/5/19 12:34pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (core) is on schedule in his recovery and should be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Beasley has been one of the better slot receivers over the last few seasons and should see plenty of targets with the Bills. He can a No. 4 receiver in deeper fantasy leagues but could be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.
Michael Gallup - WRPosted 6/5/19 3:18pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (leg) left practice early Wednesday, June 5, because of tightness in his leg.
Huddle Up: Gallup should have a solid role in the passing game this season and likely will improve on his 2018 numbers. He has a chance to be a No. 4 receiver in deeper fantasy leagues.
Exekiel Elliot - RBPosted 5/24/19 10:28am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is unlikely to face any league discipline over his involvement in a May 19 incident at a Las Vegas music festival, in the opinion of team owner Jerry Jones.
Huddle Up: Of course, Jones was certain Elliott wouldn't be suspended for domestic-violence allegations in 2016, but he wound up serving a six-game ban late in 2017 after a circus-like litany of appeals and court rulings. This latest incident, though -- involving a shoving match with a event security officer -- isn't nearly as troubling and until further notice, Elliott should be one of the top handful of RBs off the board at the top of fantasy drafts.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 5/24/19 6:47pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten 'hasn't lost a step' after taking a year off, according to QB Dak Prescott. 'I guess the trick is to take a year off because he's definitely gotten better, stronger and faster,' Prescott said.
Huddle Up: Witten could still be a reliable underneath target and red zone option for Prescott, but the veteran is expected to play limited snaps. At best, he's a touchdown-dependent TE2.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 5/22/19 1:34pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott said his representatives have made a counter proposal after receiving an initial contract offer from the Cowboys. Prescott said he is not sure how close the two sides are at this point.
Huddle Up: Prescott is entering the final year of his contract and likely will sign an extension this offseason. He has posted decent numbers over the last several seasons and likely will be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2019.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 5/22/19 2:14pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has not received a contract extension offer at this point, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Elliott is under contract for two more seasons, so the Cowboys likely will try to sign Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper before they sign Elliott. He will continue to be a big piece of their offense and should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 5/21/19 9:13am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (core) underwent core-muscle surgery a few weeks ago, head coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday, May 21, and is being held out of OTAs.
Huddle Up: Beasley should recover in time for training camp and man the slot position for the Bills, but it remains a low-volume passing offense, and Beasley should go undrafted in all but the deepest of leagues.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 5/8/19 11:44am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has received an initial contact extension offer from the Cowboys, and the team is waiting for his counter offer, according to sources. The two sides are not believed to be close to any deal.
Huddle Up: Prescott likely will receive an extension at some point before the start of the season and should receive a lucrative deal. He has posted solid numbers over the last few seasons and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some leagues.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 5/7/19 9:15am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott and the team are reportedly working toward a contract extension that will approach $30 million annually, if not more, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Bolstered by the addition of WR Amari Cooper, Prescott found new fantasy life in the second half of last season and finished as a top-10 QB. He enters 2019 as a borderline QB1.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 5/4/19 2:11pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is a candidate for a contract extension, but executive vice president Stephen Jones said there is no timetable for an agreement.
Huddle Up: Elliott is under contract for two more seasons, so the Cowboys have other players they would like to sign before Elliott. He will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Cowboys and probably will be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 5/4/19 2:34pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott hopefully will sign a contract extension with the Cowboys before the start of the 2019 regular season, according to owner/general manager Jerry Jones and executive vice president Stephen Jones.
Huddle Up: Prescott was a solid fantasy option last season and will have a good group of pass catchers to work with this upcoming season. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback in leagues.
Tony Pollard - RBPosted 4/27/19 10:24am ET
Memphis RB Tony Pollard was selected by the Dallas Cowboys with the 128th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Pollard likely will not receive a lot of touches behind Ezekiel Elliott during his rookie season and can be avoided in standard leagues.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 4/24/19 5:09am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's fifth-year option was exercised Wednesday, April 24.
Huddle Up: Elliott is one of, if not the, best option at the position in fantasy.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 4/17/19 1:32pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's fifth-year option will be exercised this offseason, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.
Huddle Up: Elliott could receive a long-term deal at some point this offseason but will be under contract for at least two more seasons. He is one of the best running backs in NFL and will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 4/15/19 7:45am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will report for offseason conditioning Monday, April 12, despite his desire for a contract extension.
Huddle Up: His contract status has no bearing on his status as an elite RB1 in fantasy.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 4/8/19 4:51pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is a candidate for a contract extension this offseason, but executive vice president Stephen Jones said Prescott likely will need to agree to a team-friendly extension so the team can build around him. Jones said Prescott deserves to be paid fairly in his next contract.
Huddle Up: Prescott is one of several players the Cowboys need to sign to a contract extension. He posted solid numbers last season and will have a solid group of pass catchers to work with in 2019. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 3/30/19 10:16am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has not started contract extension talks with the Cowboys at this point, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Prescott is entering the final year of his contract, so he should receive an extension at some point this offseason. He will have a solid group of pass catchers to work with next season and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback or a strong No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Tavon Austin - WRPosted 3/14/19 9:31am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Tavon Austin has agreed to re-sign with the team, according to a source Thursday, March 14.
Huddle Up: Austin's return helps ease the loss of Cole Beasley, but he'll remain a deep-league fantasy flier in most leagues as his first season in Big D yielded only 14 touches, 195 yards from scrimmage and two TDs.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 3/12/19 9:48am ET
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley plans to sign a four-year contract with the Buffalo Bills worth $29 million, according to sources. The deal will include $14.4 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Beasley was one of the best slot receivers available and likely will be a reliable target for the Bills as a slot receiver. He has caught at least 50 passes in three of the last four seasons and has been targeted at least 60 times in all four of those seasons. He probably will be a low-end No. 3 receiver or a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 3/6/19 1:25pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten was officially signed to a one-year, $2 million contract Wednesday, March 6. Witten can make up to $5 million, however. The Cowboys had to release Witten from the Reserve/Retired list before making the signing official.
Huddle Up: Turning 37 years old this summer, Witten is no longer a viable fantasy tight end. He is expected to be on a snap count to boot. He also makes Blake Jarwin less appealing.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 3/3/19 8:17am ET
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley is reportedly seeking $20 million in guaranteed money, according to Calvin Watkins of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: The soon-to-be 30-year-old Beasley led the Cowboys in targets (87) and receptions (65) in 2018 and is worthy of consideration as a flier during the later rounds of PPR leagues next season, depending on his landing spot.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 3/2/19 6:32pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten will have a meaningful role in the offense, according to owner Jerry Jones.
Huddle Up: While Witten isn't expected to see a full workload, there's a good chance that he will be on the field in the red zone. He could be a touchdown-dependent TE2.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 3/1/19 9:29pm ET
The Dallas Cowboys and representatives for impending free-agent QB Dak Prescott met in Indianapolis at the NFL Scouting Combine looking to nail down a deal, or at least make progress on a new deal. He is expected to fetch at least $20 million per season.
Huddle Up: Prescott had yet to pass for 4,000 yards in the NFL, but the Cowboys are apparently enamored with his play. The team recently re-signed Jason Witten after one year in the broadcast booth, and they're working toward re-upping with Amari Cooper. If the team can add a couple of decent pieces in the pass game via the draft or free agency, Prescott could improve in 2019 and be a bona fide QB1 in fantasy leagues across the board.
Cole Beasley - WRPosted 2/28/19 9:48am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley likely will test the market as an unrestricted free agent, but the Cowboys are still hoping they can re-sign him at the right price. 'Oh, we love Cole Beasley,' Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Thursday, Feb. 28. 'If you followed our football team the last few years you know the impact that he's made on our team. He's a great young man, and he's been a heck of a player for us, but you know the business of the NFL is challenging. There's a lot of different guys that you want to keep on our team, throughout the free agent process, and unfortunately when you have players like Cole Beasley, other teams want them, too. So we certainly want Cole Beasley back. Again, he's made a huge impact on our team. We want him with our team as we go forward for a long, long time, but business will creep into that on both sides. Hopefully we can get to a point where we can make a deal with him and some of these other guys where it works well for everybody and we keep moving forward.'
Huddle Up: Beasley led the team's wide receivers and tight ends with 87 targets and 65 receptions -- both the second-best single-season marks in his seven-year career -- but it sounds like he may generate WR4 fantasy intrigue in another uniform next season.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 2/28/19 10:20am ET
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten was lured out of retirement/broadcast booth by a one-year contract offer of nearly $5 million, a source said Thursday, Feb. 28.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 2/28/19 10:07am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten announced Thursday, Feb. 28, he is ending his retirement after one year in the broadcast booth and returning to play for the Cowboys for what would be his 16th season.
Huddle Up: Witten caught 63-of-87 targets for 560 yards and five TDs in his most recent season in 2017 to rank 10th among fantasy tight ends. And although the Cowboys missed his middle-of-the-field presence last season, Witten turns 37 in May and will be a TD-dependent TE2 fantasy option if he winds up playing in 2019.
