  Cowboys | Jerry Jones wants to keep Tony Romo    Fri Dec 9, 11:18 PM

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he believes he can convince QB Tony Romo to remain with the team in 2017.

Footballguys view: Jones is trying to drive up the price here. Romo should be on the trade block...if the price is right. The Cowboys may be able to get a first-round pick for Romo as they are moving forward with Dak Prescott as their franchise quarterback.

  Cowboys | Jason Witten chasing franchise history    Tue Dec 6, 06:37 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten (11,768) needs 137 yards to pass retired WR Michael Irvin (11,904) for the most receiving yards in franchise history.

Footballguys view: In four games, Witten should be able to reach that number. Reports indicate the Cowboys are not going to rest their starters when they clinch home-field advantage for the playoffs.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott, QB Dak Prescott, WR Dez Bryant and WR Cole Beasley are expected to see their usual reps down the stretch, as team owner Jerry Jones stated it will be 'business as usual' even if his team clinches the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

Footballguys view: That's good news for fantasy owners who have been riding guys like Elliott into the fantasy playoffs. If you make it to the championship in Week 16, then it sounds like your Cowboys will be available.

  Cowboys | La'el Collins expected to return    Sat Dec 3, 09:29 AM

Dallas Cowboys OG La'el Collins (toe) is expected to return to action before the end of the season, although it is uncertain if he will replace OG Ronald Leary in the starting lineup if he comes back, according to owner Jerry Jones.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys offensive line is easily the best in the league. If Collins gets his starting job back, it could make them even better. Collins is on injured reserve recovering from surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right big toe and has not played since Week 3's game against the Chicago Bears.

  Cowboys | Streak ends for Jason Witten    Fri Dec 2, 12:49 AM

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten did not catch a pass in a 17-15 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13, snapping a 130-game streak that dated back to 2008.

Footballguys view: Witten was not a factor as the Cowboys only threw 18 times. He'll be back to low ceiling TE1 status in a better matchup against the Giants next week.

  Cowboys | Quiet night for Dak Prescott    Fri Dec 2, 12:19 AM

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 12 of his 18 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown and ran six times for 37 yards in a 17-15 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Prescott was a disappointment from a fantasy perspective, but give the Vikings defense credit instead of holding it against him. He'll be back to his solid QB1 status against the Giants next week.

  Cowboys | Solid night for Ezekiel Elliott    Fri Dec 2, 12:10 AM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott finished with 20 carries for 86 yards and a touchdown and four catches for 19 yards in a 17-15 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Elliott had a long run called back by a holding penalty and fought hard against the Vikings tough defense all night. He's in the running with LeVeon Bell and David Johnson to be the #1 running back this year.

  Cowboys | Dez Bryant scores again    Fri Dec 2, 12:06 AM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant finished with four catches for a team-high 84 yards and a touchdown in a 17-15 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Bryant had one of the better games of any wide receiver against the Vikings this year. He's back to full health and should be treated as a WR1 against the Giants next week.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dez Bryant (back) finished with five catches for a team-high 72 yards in a 31-26 win over the Washington Redskins Thursday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: Bryant had a great battle with Washington CB Josh Norman on Thanksgiving -- and Bryant came out on top. As his chemistry gets stronger with QB Dak Prescott, Bryant should continue to post numbers like this -- or better -- in the coming weeks.

  Cowboys | Dak Prescott on verge of rookie record    Tue Nov 22, 06:55 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has registered a 100.0 QB rating in eight games this year, which currently pits him in a tie for second place with Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III for most such games in a rookie season. He trails only Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, who posted nine in his rookie campaign.

Footballguys view: Prescott is having one of the best years for a rookie (not just rookie QB) in NFL history. What an incredible find for the Cowboys in the fourth round, and Prescott is clearly the QB of the future and the QB of the now. The Cowboys may be the best team in the NFL, and they're set to make a deep postseason run in 2016.

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) was activated from the Non-Football Injury list Monday, Nov. 21.

  Cowboys | Jaylon Smith likely to come off NFI list    Mon Nov 21, 03:06 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith (knee) is expected to be activated off the team's non-football injury (NFI) list soon, but the rookie's routine will stay the same, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.

Footballguys view: We're rooting for Smith and hope his football career can continue at some point. When that is remains a huge question mark. With Smith coming off NFI, the Cowboys keep open the possibility of him playing but it remains unlikely Smith will see a snap as he continues to recover from a knee injury that included nerve damage from his final game at Notre Dame.

  Cowboys | Cole Beasley finds end zone    Sun Nov 20, 08:01 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley managed five catches for 59 yards and a touchdown on six targets in the Week 11 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant posted six receptions for 80 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 11 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He was targeted eight times.

Footballguys view: Bryant is starting to round into WR1 form. Dak Prescott favored him in the opponent's end of the field in a way that we have been waiting for since Bryant got hurt early in the season. He could see a lot of Josh Norman on Thanksgiving, but it's hard to bench him coming off of a game like this one.

  Cowboys | Dak Prescott tosses three more TDs    Sun Nov 20, 06:58 PM

Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott completed 27 of his 36 attempts for 301 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 11 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He also rushed twice for 16 yards.

Footballguys view: Prescott was steady and found more and more flaws in the Ravens defense as the game went on. Dez Bryant played a bigger role as the offense got closer to the end zone, and Prescott was able to use secondary receivers well, as he has all season. He's a strong QB1 only looking up at a handful of quarterbacks in the rankings.
