  • Michael Gallup Feels Good Again

    Headshot for Michael Gallup

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is reportedly feeling good again at recently team workouts. The 27-year-old is now 18 months removed from a torn ACL that he suffered in the later part of the 2021 season. Gallup was healthy for a majority of last season, but didn't contribute as much as many thought he would. He finished with 39 receptions, 424 yards, and three touchdowns in 14 games. It sounds like Gallup is feeling better now and could be in for a bounce back campaign. However, he'll have to compete with Brandin Cooks and CeeDee Lamb for targets in Dallas. The expectation is that Gallup will be the starting slot receiver to begin the season. He could have some late-round value, assuming he's truly back to full health.

  • Terence Steele Limited At OTAs

    Dallas Cowboys offensive tackle Terence Steele (knee), who tore his ACL and MCL in his left knee in Week 14 of last season against the Houston Texans, was limited during organized team activities this week. The fourth-year offensive lineman has started 40 games in the last three seasons and is a valuable member of the team's O-line when he's healthy. "Terence isn't quite ready for some of that," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "We'll try to interject these guys the best we can." As long as the 25-year-old doesn't suffer any setbacks once training camp begins later this summer, he will open the 2023 regular season as Dallas' starting right tackle.

  • Michael Gallup To Have Expanded Role

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is expected to have an expanded route tree next season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. The team wants to add more to Gallup's plate rather than having him exclusively play the X receiver role. He spent most of last season attempting to get back to form after tearing his ACL in late-2021. Gallup has delivered back-to-back disappointing campaigns, but injuries have played a big role in that. The expectation is that he'll function as the WR3 behind Brandin Cooks and CeeDee Lamb. Gallup should have some late-round value, assuming he's finally back to full health.

  • Tony Pollard Taking Part In OTAs

    Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard (ankle, leg) has been able to take part in the team's reduced-tempo organized team activities this week, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Pollard suffered a fractured fibula in the Jan. 22 playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers and continues to work his way back to full strength. The 26-year-old also had tightrope surgery on a high-ankle sprain in his left leg, so his recovery will be something to watch through training camp this summer. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready for Week 1 as Dallas' primary running back after breaking out in 2022 with his first 1,000-yard rushing season and 12 total touchdowns in 16 regular season games. As long as he's healthy, Pollard has RB1 fantasy upside in 2023.

  • Michael Gallup Believes Knee Injury Is Behind Him

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup stated he was bothered by lingering left knee soreness during the 2022-23 campaign. Fortunately, the wideout reported he's feeling good during a radio interview. "My knee was feeling sore. Last year at this time, I couldn't walk. It's different now. I feel springy again." The 27-year-old suffered a torn left ACL during a meeting with the Arizona Cardinals in January 2022 and missed three games last season. Nevertheless, Gallup has shown flashes of promise in the past, including amassing 1,107 receiving yards in 2019. As a result, he could easily surpass his ADP expectation, even with competition for Dak Prescott's attention. But Gallup will need to stay healthy, which will continue to be a concern for fantasy managers.

  • Multiple Teams Believe Ezekiel Elliott Has Lost A Step

    Long-time Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was released by the team after his 2022 campaign, and the market for the 27-year-old Ohio State product is reportedly slim. Elliott rushed 231 times for 876 yards and 12 touchdowns last season for Dallas, but his 3.8 yards per carry marked a career low through his first seven NFL seasons. Teammate Tony Pollard rushed for 1,007 yards and averaged 5.2 yards per carry and was clearly the more efficient and explosive Cowboys' running back. According to ESPN's Kimberly A. Martin, "The market that Zeke wants just may not be there," and multiple franchises believe Elliott's best days are behind him. He may be on a roster next season, but he'll likely have to accept a cheap, one-year deal and will be a committee and short-yardage back moving forward.

  • Cowboys Sign David Durden, Jose Barbon

    The Dallas Cowboys signed undrafted free-agent wide receivers David Durden and Jose Barbon on Friday. Both Durden and Barbon join a very crowded Cowboys receiving room heading into offseason workouts, so they'll attempt to impress the coaching staff in order to stick around this summer. Durden, 24, started off at Mercer before transferring to West Florida in college. Barbon, 23, played his college ball at Temple and had 72 receptions for 918 yards and two touchdowns in his final season in 2022. Both Durden and Barbon face long odds of sticking on Dallas' roster.

  • Cowboys Sign Mazi Smith To Rookie Deal

    The Dallas Cowboys signed first-round defensive tackle Mazi Smith to his four-year rookie deal on Thursday. The contract comes with a fifth-year option. In addition to Smith, the Cowboys signed all of the rookie draft picks, including Luke Schoonmaker, DeMarvion Overshown, Junior Fehoko, Asim Richards, Eric Scott Jr., Deuce Vaughn and Jalen Brooks. Dallas opens their rookie minicamp on Friday. Smith brings plenty of power to the middle of the Cowboys' defensive line at 6-foot-3, 323 pounds, and he should immediately make the Dallas D better at stopping the run. The 21-year-old is still very raw, though, so he'll need to be coached up at the next level to reach his true ceiling as a hog molly on the interior of the defense.

  • Mazi Smith Could Be A Force In The Middle Immediately

    The Dallas Cowboys took defensive tackle Mazi Smith in the first round of this year's NFL draft, and Smith should instantly improve the team's below-average run defense. The Cowboys also think he can eventually contribute more pass rush than he showed in college, but at the very least he should be a force in the middle on early downs in his rookie season in 2023. The combination of Smith and veteran Osa Odighizuwa will allow Dallas to have a quality defensive-tackle duo to play together for a while. Smith was the team's first defensive tackle taken in the first round since Russell Maryland and Kelvin Pritchett in 1991.

  • Cowboys Want Extensions For CeeDee Lamb, Dak Prescott

    The Dallas Cowboys want to get contract extensions done with wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, who had his 2024 fifth-year option picked up, quarterback Dak Prescott, who is signed through the 2024 season, and cornerback Trevon Diggs, who is in the final year of his contract in 2023. Lamb is Dallas' top priority. He has made the Pro Bowl in two of his three NFL seasons and had career-highs in catches (107), targets (156), receiving yards (1,359) and touchdowns (nine) in 17 regular season starts in 2022 as one of the league's top receivers. The 24-year-old could be even more dangerous in 2023 with Brandin Cooks taking some attention away from him. Prescott, meanwhile missed five games last year due to injury and had a career-high 15 interceptions in 12 starts.

  • Cowboys To Look At Robbie Gould, Brett Maher

    The Dallas Cowboys entered last week's NFL draft with a plan to take a kicker, but it never materialized. Owner Jerry Jones said the team will look at veterans on the open market, such as Robbie Gould. The Cowboys also won't rule out the potential return of Brett Maher, who set a team record for points in a season in 2022 before missing six extra-point tries in the last three games. The only kicker currently on Dallas' roster is Tristan Vizcaino, who attempted only three field goals last year with the Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots. Vizcaino has played in only 10 career games over three NFL seasons, so the Cowboys certainly would like to bring in some more competition at the position.

  • Cowboys Could Re-Sign Ezekiel Elliott

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones isn't ruling out the possibility of re-signing running back Ezekiel Elliott. "The ship hasn't sailed there. We haven't made a decision at all. As far as our interest in Zeke, nothing we did today changes that. I haven't ruled out Zeke," Jones said. The Cowboys continue to keep the door open for Zeke to return in 2023. They added running back Deuce Vaughn on Day 3 of the NFL draft over the weekend, but Elliott could return to provide short-yardage and goal-line depth in the backfield behind Tony Pollard, who is recovering from an injury this offseason. The 27-year-old really fell off in his production the last two years despite posting his fourth 1,000-yard rushing season in 2021. Wherever Elliott lands, he'll most likely be a low-ceiling, boom/bust RB3/flex in fantasy.
