  • Chidobe Awuzie Placed On Injured Reserve

    Dallas Cowboys cornerback Chidobe Awuzie (hamstring) has been placed on the injured reserve by the team on Saturday. This means he'll miss the Cowboys' next three contests, which includes a big matchup against the Seahawks in Week 3. Rookie corner Trevon Diggs is also banged up with a shoulder injury, so this secondary is now far from healthy. It's bad news for Dallas because they'll be tasked with slowing down a red-hot Russell Wilson on Sunday. It's a safe bet to expect a lot of points to be scored in this game. Nearly every skill-position player should be started in this contest.

  • Cowboys Expected To Be Without Tyron Smith Again

    Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith (neck) isn't expected to play against the Seahawks in Week 3. Ordinarily, replacing a tackle of Smith's caliber with someone else would be an issue for any offense, but the Seahawks rank in the middle of the league this year in pressure percentage and the Cowboys passing and rushing offense should still be in fine shape in a game that many expect to be a shootout. Don't think Smith's absence means you need to downgrade Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, or any of the team's other options.

  • Cowboys Defense Not A Recommended Week 3 Start

    The Dallas Cowboys Defense is not a recommended start in Week 3 fantasy lineups. Despite the team coming back to win in Week 2, it's no secret that the Cowboys defense struggled quite a bit against the Falcons, allowing 39 points. This week, they'll take on a red-hot Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks in what should be another high-scoring contest. The Cowboys defense hasn't been able to put any pressure on opposing quarterbacks so far this season, and Wilson and the Seahawks shouldn't have too much trouble putting up points. Most fantasy leagues will have far better DST options on the waiver wire this week.

  • Greg Zuerlein A Strong Kicking Option In Week 3

    Dallas Cowboys kicker Greg Zuerlein is a strong fantasy kicking option for Week 3 lineups. Zuerlein has made three of his four field goal tries and all six of his extra points so far this season. The Cowboys will be taking on the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3, making for another possibly high-scoring game which should lead to kicking opportunities for Zuerlein. He's a starting kicker in 12-team leagues.

  • Dalton Schultz Is A Fantasy Starter Now

    Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz is suddenly a viable fantasy starting tight end in 12-team leagues. Schultz led the Cowboys in targets in Week 2 with 10, catching nine passes for 88 yards and a touchdown. With that kind of usage and with another potentially high-scoring game on tap for Week 3, Schultz could see another TE1 finish. With Blake Jarwin (knee) done for the season, Schultz will remain the top receiving tight end for the high-octane Cowboys offense.

  • CeeDee Lamb Has Upside In Week 3

    Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver CeeDee Lamb comes in right on the WR2/3 turn for a good Week 3 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Lamb somewhat surprisingly tied for the team lead in wide receiver targets with nine in Week 2. Week 3 draws another potentially high-scoring contest, with Lamb sure to see many targets for a second consecutive week. He's playing behind Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup in terms of offensive snaps, but he's being targeted heavily when he in on the field. In Week 1, Lamb was in on 82% of the team's offensive snaps, with a similar 83% number in Week 2. He's certainly made the most of his snaps, turning 15 targets into 11 catches for 165 yards so far this season.

  • Michael Gallup Has Nice Week 3 Upside

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup has been mostly disappointing through the first two weeks of the season, but he's a solid fantasy bet for a Week 3 potentially high-scoring affair with the Seattle Seahawks. So far, Gallup has turned 10 targets into five catches for 108 yards. He's been on the field for almost every offensive play, however, seeing the field on 96% of Week 1's offensive snaps and 91% of Week 2's. In a game sure to feature some high scores, Gallup is a solid WR2 option with touchdown upside.

  • Amari Cooper Set Up For Another Strong Game In Week 3

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper has been an effective fantasy wide receiver through two games despite not coming down with a touchdown yet. Cooper has totaled 16 catches for 181 yards on 23 targets. Facing the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3, the Cowboys should have another high-scoring offensive performance and Cooper is about as good a bet as anyone to score his first touchdown of 2020. Cooper is a mid-tier WR1 for Week 3.

  • Tony Pollard Not A Starting Fantasy Option In Week 3

    Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard is not a standalone fantasy option in Week 3 lineups. Pollard remains a potential league-winning backup, but as long as Ezekiel Elliott is on the field, Pollard won't get enough playing time to make much fantasy noise. In Week 1, Pollard was on the field for just 14% of offensive snaps and that dropped to 10% in Week 2. Pollard should be rostered in all formats, but shouldn't be started anywhere at this point.

    Sep 23 · Source via Cowboys Tony Pollard
  • Ezekiel Elliott One Of The Best Running Back Options

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is one of the best fantasy running back options in a Week 3 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks Defense has been good against the run this season, but they've also only taken on the Falcons and the Patriots, two teams who don't focus on the running game much. Meanwhile, "Zeke" has 185 rushing yards and 64 receiving yards already. He's a surefire RB1 with easy-to-see overall RB1 upside this week.

  • Dak Prescott Looks Set For Another Strong Performance

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had an outstanding game in Week 2 and is set for another big game in Week 3. The Cowboys will take on the Seattle Seahawks in what should be a high scoring game with two powerful quarterbacks at the reins. Prescott scored three rushing touchdowns last week while throwing for 450 yards. He'll be an elite QB1 option again in Week 3 and needs to be started in all formats.

  • Greg Zuerlein Makes Two Field Goals And Four Extra Points

    Dallas Cowboys kicker Greg Zuerlein made all six of his kicking attempts in Week 2, including four extra points and two field goals. One of the field goals was a game-winner from 46 yards out, giving the Cowboys an improbable 40-39 win after being down 20-0 at the end of the first quarter. Zuerlein's other kick came from 33 yards out. With the Cowboys offense clicking the way they (eventually) did in this one, "Greg the Leg" should be a strong fantasy contributor the rest of the way.

  • Dalton Schultz Leads The Cowboys In Targets In Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz led the team in targets with 10 in a Week 2 win over the Atlanta Falcons. He caught nine of those passes for 88 yards and a touchdown. After starting tight end Blake Jarwin went down with a knee injury in Week 1, it was assumed the Cowboys would mostly go away from involving the tight end in the passing game, but Schultz had other ideas. His score came on a 10-yard pass from quarterback Dak Prescott in the fourth quarter, helping the Cowboys to their impressive 40-39 comeback win. If Schultz continues to see this kind of involvement in the offense, he could be the least expected TE1 in many years.

  • Michael Gallup Catches Just Two Passes In Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup only caught two passes in a Week 2 comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons. He was able to gain 58 yards and was targeted five times in a game where quarterback Dak Prescott made 47 throws. Gallup was well behind wide receivers CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper, who each saw nine targets their way, and tight end Dalton Schultz, who saw 10. Gallup will have some huge games here and there, but he's the least likely of the three Cowboys wide receivers to put together a consistent string of fantasy performances. He's best used in best-ball formats or carefully matched up in standard leagues.

  • Amari Cooper Gains An Even 100 Yards In Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper caught six passes in an impressive Week 2 comeback win, gaining an even 100 yards. Cooper tied with rookie CeeDee Lamb for the lead among wide receivers with nine targets, both falling one behind tight end Dalton Schultz's 10. It was a strong performance from Cooper and the entire Cowboys offense, as they were down 20-0 after the first quarter and managed to come away with a 40-39 victory. Cooper has a tougher matchup against the Seahawks Defense next week but should remain a solid WR1/2 in that one.

  • CeeDee Lamb Leads The Cowboys In Receiving In Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver CeeDee Lamb led the Cowboys in receiving in an amazing comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons. Lamb caught six passes, gaining 106 scoreless yards. He was targeted nine times, tying Amari Cooper for most among Cowboys wide receivers and falling one being the 10 targets seen by tight end Dalton Schultz. It was an impressive showing by the rookie wide receiver, who should have even more upside as he continues to settle into the offense. With the Cowboys running plenty of three-wide sets, especially now with Blake Jarwin (knee) out for the year, Lamb's fantasy arrow is pointing straight up.

  • Tony Pollard Gets Three Touches In Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard only got three touches in Week 2. It was one touch less than the four he received in Week 1. Pollard continues to work as Ezekiel Elliott's direct backup and has league-winning upside if anything happens to Elliott, but has very little if any stand-alone fantasy value. He should be rostered in every fantasy format, but should not be started as long as Elliott remains on the field.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Scores Again In Week 2 Comeback

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott scored a touchdown in Sunday's incredible comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Elliott ran the ball 22 times for 89 yards and a score, adding six catches for 33 more yards. Quarterback Dak Prescott ended up scoring three of his own rushing touchdowns, so this could have been an even bigger game for Elliott, but anyone who had him in their fantasy lineups likely wasn't too disappointed. Elliott gets a tough matchup with the Seahawks Defense next week but will be an RB1 like he is every time he suits up.

  • Dak Prescott Throws For 450 And Scores Three Times

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott led an amazing comeback in Week 2, beating the Atlanta Falcons 40-39. Prescott completed 34 of his 47 pass attempts for 450 yards and one touchdown. He added five carries for 18 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. It was an incredible performance for Prescott, who saw his team go down 20-0 in the first quarter and came all the way back for the last-second field goal victory. Prescott likely won many fantasy championships this week. He'll get a tougher defense in the Seahawks next week but should still be a QB1.

  • Dallas Won't Have Tyron Smith In Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith (neck) is officially inactive for the team's Week 2 contest against the Atlanta Falcons. Smith's been an elite lineman for the Cowboys, helping to keep quarterback Dak Prescott upright and opening holes in the run game for Ezekiel Elliott. You're still starting both of those guys in season-long leagues in Week 2, but Smith's absence does open up more uncertainty about the performance of this entire Cowboys offense. Something to consider if you're still working on your DFS lineup.

  • Tyron Smith A Gametime Decision

    Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith (neck) is a gametime decision for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Smith injured his neck during Thursday's practice and was then unable to go on Friday. There is a real chance he misses the contest, which would hurt an offensive line that is already without right tackle La'el Collins (hip). Dallas had guard Ronald Leary- a former Cowboy- in for a workout Saturday. If Smith is unable to go, it's certainly a concern for the Dallas offense as a whole, as he is one of the best in the business.

  • Cowboys To Make Decision On Tyron Smith On Saturday

    Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith (neck) hasn't practiced all week due to a neck injury, and a decision will be made on his availability for Week 2 against the Falcons on Saturday. Head coach Mike McCarthy said that Smith wants to play. This is something to monitor since the Cowboys already have offensive lineman La'el Collins and Cam Erving on Injured Reserve. Losing Smith against Atlanta would be another big blow to their offensive line and could be bad news for quarterback Dak Prescott's protection this Sunday. Terence Steele would likely step in on Prescott's blind side if Smith doesn't get clearance.

  • Amari Cooper Expected To Play In Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper (ankle) is not expected to miss any time in Week 2. Cooper was a late addition to the injury report this week, which is always concerning, but it seems he is fine and fully expected to play. Cooper is a high-upside WR1 as long as he suits up, as the Falcons Defense was annihilated by the Seahawks passing game last week. Cooper will match up with rookie defensive back A.J. Terrell.

  • Amari Cooper Limited In Practice

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper (foot) was limited in practice on Thursday, while left tackle Tyron Smith (neck) sat out. With La'el Collins and Cam Erving already on Injured Reserve, Smith's injury is one to watch heading into Week 2 against the Falcons. Cooper should be good to go this weekend as long as he doesn't suffer a setback in practice on Friday. If he were to sit out on Sunday, rookie CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup would see more targets in the passing game, especially with tight end Blake Jarwin out for the season. But if Cooper is active as expected, he'll be a surefire WR1 against a defense that was carved up by Russell Wilson in Week 1.

  • Cowboys Defense Not A Strong Week 2 Option

    The Dallas Cowboys Defense is not a strong Week 2 option in what could end up as a shootout against the Atlanta Falcons. While some of it came in what amounted to garbage time, the Falcons offense was still able to move the ball and put up points in Week 1 all while the Cowboys defense was unable to slow down the Seattle offense. It doesn't bode well for Week 2, especially since they only recorded one sack. The Cowboys defense will have better matchups where they could be used as a streaming defense, but this is not one of those weeks.

  • Greg Zuerlein A Good Kicking Option For Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys kicker Greg Zuerlein is a strong kicking option in Week 2 fantasy lineups. With the Cowboys taking on the Atlanta Falcons in what could be the highest scoring game of the week, Zuerlein should have plenty of chances to kick field goals or tack on extra points. In Week 1, "Greg the Leg" made two extra points and one of his two field goal attempts. He's ranked solidly in the top five of fantasy kickers for Week 2.

  • Dalton Schultz Suddenly A Starter In Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz is suddenly a starter after Blake Jarwin (knee) went down early in Week 1. Much more of a blocking type of tight end, Schultz still saw four targets in Week 1, catching one of them for 11 yards. With a week to practice as the starter, Schultz should be a little more involved in the passing game in Week 2. Despite a good matchup in a game that could be the highest scoring of the week, Schultz is nothing more than a touchdown-dependent dart throw in Week 2. Players in deep tight end bonus leagues may want to add him to their bench to see what happens, but he's not a recommended starter at this point.

  • CeeDee Lamb Looks To Build On A Solid Debut In Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver CeeDee Lamb will look to build on his solid NFL debut from Week 1. He'll have a much easier matchup against a soft Atlanta Falcons secondary that allowed four passing touchdowns in Week 1. Lamb caught five passes in his first game, gaining 59 yards. While he fell well short of Amari Cooper's 14 targets, Lamb saw one more target than Michael Gallup in Week 1. Lamb checks in as a WR3 with touchdown upside in a good matchup.

  • Michael Gallup Has A Good Chance To Score In Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is a solid fantasy option in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons and has a good chance to find the end zone. Gallup had a tough matchup in Week 1 but ended up with 50 yards on three catches. The Falcons Defense, however, allowed 56 passing plays that went for 20 yards or more last season. That's Gallup's game, and he should be the target of at least a few deep balls from quarterback Dak Prescott. Gallup comes into Week 2 as a high-ceiling WR2.

    Sep 16 · Source via Cowboys Michael Gallup
  • Amari Cooper Should Have A Good Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper shouldn't have too much trouble racking up fantasy points in a Week 2 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons secondary had no answer for any of the Seahawks wide outs in Week 1 and Cooper should add to that trend. He was targeted 14 times in Week 1 and caught 10 of those for 81 yards. He might not see quite that many targets this week, but he's a WR1 with an enormous PPR ceiling regardless.

    Sep 16 · Source via Cowboys Amari Cooper
  • Ezekiel Elliott Set To Pick Up Where He Left Off For Week 2

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is an excellent fantasy option in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons. Elliott checks in as the overall RB2 for a matchup with a Falcons Defense that ranked 29th against the run. "Zeke" scored two touchdowns in Week 1 and could easily match that this week as well. Almost never off the field when the team is on offense, Elliott has one of the highest running back floors in fantasy and one of the higher ceilings in standard scoring as well. He's a must-start in all leagues.

  • Dak Prescott Has An Excellent Week 2 Matchup

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has an excellent matchup in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons Defense was torched for 322 passing yards and four passing touchdowns in Week 1 and the Falcons secondary looked helpless for most of the game. Prescott comes in as the overall QB3 this week and should be a lock for at worst one of the highest floors of the week. Combine that with a very high ceiling and you have a guy who should be started in any fantasy format despite his lackluster Week 1 performance.

  • Cowboys Defense Loses Sean Lee For Six Weeks

    Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee (hernia) is expected to be out for six weeks after having hernia surgery last week in Philadelphia with specialist Dr. William Meyers, according to sources. Lee began the season on Injured Reserve and now may not return until mid-October. It's especially notable after Leighton Vander Esch broke his collarbone in the Week 1 loss to the Rams on Sunday night. The injuries to the middle of Dallas' defense will put more responsibility on both Jaylon Smith and Aldon Smith, with the latter being a bright spot in the season opener. Both Smiths will be in play as IDP starters at the position in Week 2, but the Cowboys Defense should be avoided against a strong Falcons passing attack.

  • Leighton Vander Esch Out 6-8 Weeks

    Dallas Cowboys linebacker Leighton Vander Esch (collarbone) cleanly broke his collarbone on Sunday night against the Rams, according to a source. He'll need surgery and will return in six to eight weeks. Vander Esch is a starting linebacker in IDP leagues on a weekly basis, but he continues to have trouble staying on the field. The good news is that he'll be back this season, so those with enough room on their benches should try to keep him stashed in the meantime. The 23-year-old had three combined tackles in the Week 1 loss to the Rams. LVE's absence will put more pressure on Aldon Smith and Jaylon Smith, with the latter becoming an even more attractive IDP starter in the middle of Dallas' defense.

    The Dallas Cowboys Defense was not great in a Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. They allowed 20 points while recording one sack and one interception. The Rams were able to gain 153 yards on the ground and 269 yards through the air. The Dallas defense lost their top linebacker, Leighton Vander Esch, and will be without him for about half of the season. This unit didn't look great against a decent Rams offense, they could struggle again next week against the Falcons powerful passing offense.

  • Greg Zuerlein Makes A Field Goal And Two Extra Points

    Dallas Cowboys kicker Greg Zuerlein made a 33-yard field goal and both of his extra point tries in Sunday night's loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Zuerlein made one field goal try and missed the other. The Cowboys offense overall just didn't seem to click all that well in this one, so Zuerlein should see some more kicking volume once the offense gets it together. He could be in for a big game in next week's matchup with the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Michael Gallup Makes Three Catches In Week 1

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup made three catches in Week 1, gaining 50 yards. Gallup was targeted five times, meanwhile Amari Cooper saw 14 targets and rookie CeeDee Lamb saw six. Still, Gallup was on the field for 69 snaps along with Cooper and while he may have a very high ceiling on any given week, he also could have the lowest floor. He's a good bet to reach more of his ceiling in Week 2 against the Falcons, though.

  • CeeDee Lamb Makes Five Catches In His First NFL Game

    Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver CeeDee Lamb started in the slot in his first NFL game and did fairly well. He was targeted six times, catching five passes for 59 yards. He looked good with the ball in his hands, gaining some impressive yards after the catch. He played fewer snaps than Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup, but he saw a lot of the field and could get quite a boost from tight end Blake Jarwin (knee) likely to miss the rest of the season.

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper led the team in catches, yards, and targets in a Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Cooper was targeted 14 times, catching 10 passes for 81 scoreless yards. The Rams secondary was all over Cooper, but he was still able to come up with a decent fantasy performance, especially in PPR leagues. He'll have a much easier time in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons, in what should be a high-scoring game.

  • Leighton Vander Esch To Be Placed On Injured Reserve

    Dallas Cowboys linebacker Leighton Vander Esch was forced to exit the game in Week 1 and was quickly ruled out. After the game, he was placed on injured reserve with a broken collarbone. He will undergo surgery to correct the injury, and as long as things go according to plan, he should be able to return in 2020. Vander Esch is a legitimate difference maker on defense when he is on the field, but there have to already be concerns about his durability despite this being just his age-24 season. Career backup Joe Thomas will likely take Vander Esch's place, and it should be a noticeable decline in the middle of the Cowboys Defense.

  • Blake Jarwin Could Be Done For The Year

    Dallas Cowboys tight end Blake Jarwin was forced to leave the game in Week 1 and could be done for the season. Jarwin went down with a non-contact injury and the Cowboys apparently fear that he may have torn his ACL. If that's true, Jarwin won't be back on the field until next season. It's a blow to the talented pass catcher who was looking at a fourth year breakout after Jason Witten left to the Raiders in the offseason. Dalton Schultz and Blake Bell are next up on the tight end depth chart, but neither player will be much of a difference maker on the field or in fantasy.

    Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard touched the ball four times in a Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Pollard ran the ball twice, gaining 10 yards and added two catches for 22 more yards. Pollard operated clearly behind Ezekiel Elliott, but showed a lot of the same burst he impressed with last season. Pollard won't be a reliable fantasy option as long as Elliott is on the field, but he is a direct backup with clear league-winning upside and should be rostered by all fantasy players with Elliott on their team.

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott scored two touchdowns on Sunday Night Football, essentially operating as the entire Dallas offense. "Zeke" ran the ball 22 times for 96 yards and a touchdown, adding three catches for 31 yards and another score. Elliott's rushing touchdown came on a one-yard plunge while his receiving score came on a 19-yard catch and run. Elliott looked good in this one, and didn't seem to suffer much from a Cowboys offensive line that somewhat surprisingly struggled. He'll be another excellent option in Week 2 against the Falcons.

  • Dak Prescott Mostly Held In Check In Week 1

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was mostly held in check by the Los Angeles Rams Defense in a Week 1 loss. Prescott completed 25 of his 39 passes for 266 yards and one touchdown. His touchdown came on a check down pass to Ezekiel Elliott. Prescott was able to add 30 yards on the ground, but took three sacks and was constantly under pressure. The Cowboys offensive line didn't look at all like the elite unit they've been over the past few seasons. Prescott played slightly worse than his line shows, as a lot of his yards came in catch-up mode in the fourth quarter. Still, he'll be one of the better fantasy quarterback options in what should be a high scoring game against the Falcons in Week 2.
