  Cowboys | Orlando Scandrick has groin injury    Tue Aug 23, 05:31 PM

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott will play    Tue Aug 23, 12:05 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) will play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 25, and the plan is for him to see eight to 12 plays. The team hopes to give him looks as a runner and receiver.

Footballguys view: That's enough to see the rookie for just a little bit, and it's a taste of what is to come in Dallas. Elliott should be the centerpiece of the Cowboys offense, and there's a chance he could lead the league in rushing as a rookie. He's immensely talented as a runner, and behind that mammoth offensive line Elliott could have great success in 2016. We're excited to see him in the preseason, even if it's only for a small handful of plays.

  Cowboys | Tyrone Crawford concussed    Tue Aug 23, 09:48 AM

Dallas Cowboys DE Tyrone Crawford (concussion) has been ruled out for the third preseason game Thursday, Aug. 25, with a concussion.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys defensive line is already hurting due to injuries and suspensions. They'll get Crawford in the concussion protocol and monitor him closely.

  Cowboys | Dez Bryant out with concussion    Tue Aug 23, 09:47 AM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (concussion) suffered a concussion in practice Monday, Aug. 22, and he has been ruled out for the third preseason game Thursday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: No need to worry about this injury at this time. However, monitor Bryant closely as he goes through the concussion protocol. The team is going to run as much as possible, but when they go through the air it will be a ton of Bryant. He's a low-end WR1 for fantasy owners in 2016.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott may play Thursday    Mon Aug 22, 06:21 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) participated in practice Monday, Aug. 22, and appears to be on track to play in the preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: If the rookie does play, he may not play that much. The talent is there, and behind this Cowboys offensive line Elliott could lead the league in rushing as a rookie. We're excited about his prospects and right now he's being taken as a first-round pick in most every draft.

  Cowboys | Lance Dunbar passes physical    Mon Aug 22, 05:49 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) passed his physical Monday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Dunbar tore his ACL and patellar tendon last season, and it's a bit of a shock to see him back and likely ready for Week 1. If healthy, Dunbar could provide the team with value as a pass-catching back behind starter Ezekiel Elliott.

  Cowboys | Tyrone Crawford being evaluated    Mon Aug 22, 04:23 PM

Dallas Cowboys DE Tyrone Crawford (head) is being evaluated for a concussion and is listed as day-to-day. DE Charles Tapper (back) is also considered day-to-day.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys can't afford any more losses to the defensive line. They're already missing players up front due to suspensions, so they need to be cautious with both players moving forward.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott may play soon    Sat Aug 20, 08:19 AM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) hopefully will be able to play in the third preseason game, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.

Footballguys view: If Elliott can't go in the third preseason game, it will be hard to justify spending a first-round pick on him because of the risk of recurrence of what would appear to be more than a minor hamstring issue. The Cowboys want to be careful with the cornerstone of their running game, but it is also important to get him some game action so he can be ready for Week 1. Alfred Morris is emerging as a clear handcuff, so that helps offset some of the risk of taking Elliott early.

  Cowboys | Alfred Morris runs over Miami    Sat Aug 20, 12:11 AM

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris had 13 carries for 85 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for 15 yards in a 41-14 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins Friday, Aug. 19.

Footballguys view: While Darren McFadden nurses a broken elbow back to health, Morris showed that he still has some of his early career form left in him. He's the handcuff to Ezekiel Elliott, and he could get well over 100 carries spelling Elliott in a high volume, efficient running game.

  Cowboys | Dak Prescott scores four times    Fri Aug 19, 11:46 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 12 of his 15 passes for 199 yards and two touchdowns and ran three times for 28 yards and two touchdowns in a 41-14 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins Friday, Aug. 19.

  Cowboys | Dak Prescott proving his worth    Fri Aug 19, 10:22 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott led four scoring drives in the first half against the Miami Dolphins Friday, Aug. 19, and owner Jerry Jones said he doesn't see a veteran quarterback coming in as long as Prescott continues to play well.

Footballguys view: Prescott is going to be better than any backup the team could get now. Dynasty league players have to take a long look at him on the waiver wire, as his running ability makes him a very intriguing stash with Tony Romo in the later part of his career.

  Cowboys | Dallas waives Chris Brown    Thu Aug 18, 06:06 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Chris Brown (undisclosed) was waived/injured Thursday, Aug. 18.


  Cowboys | Dez Bryant having best camp yet    Thu Aug 18, 12:50 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant responded to a question at practice Wednesday, Aug. 17, by saying this has been his best training camp of his seven-year career. Bryant pointed to being healthy and in great shape, as well as crediting the strong play of Cowboys CBs Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr.

Footballguys view: Given how atrocious the defense is (yes we had to pull out a Thesaurus to come up with new ways to say "bad" when referencing the Cowboys D again), he's going to have to be at his best as the Cowboys may play from behind often. He's an easy WR1 in fantasy and will see a ton of yards. Our only concern is the health of Tony Romo and the questionable QB depth behind him. We still say take Bryant early if your drafts though.

  Cowboys | Morris Claiborne having his best camp    Thu Aug 18, 09:04 AM

Dallas Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne said he is having his best training camp of his career, and he has been going at it with WR Dez Bryant on a daily basis to make each other better. Claiborne said this is the first camp he has been healthy.

Footballguys view: Let's be honest here--that bar was set tremendously low. The Dallas defense is without multiple starters to kick off the season, so Claiborne will see a lot of work early on.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott unlikely to play Friday    Wed Aug 17, 02:04 AM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) returned to practice on Tuesday, Aug. 16, but did not take part in a full session and is not expected to play in the team's preseason game on Friday, Aug. 19, against the Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: As long as Elliott is a full go for the third preseason game and looks good, he'll be worth the premium pick that he has cost in fantasy drafts since the Cowboys took him at #4.

  Cowboys | Dak Prescott earns praise    Wed Aug 17, 12:13 AM

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott might practice Tuesday    Mon Aug 15, 11:20 PM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) might return to practice Tuesday, Aug. 16, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This appears to be a minor hamstring issue. As long as it doesn't come up and cause him to miss time for the rest of the month, we can put Elliott back where he was in our rankings before the injury.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott part of walkthrough     Mon Aug 15, 03:38 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) went through the team walkthrough with the first-team offense Monday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: It's just a walkthrough, but it can be taken as a sign that Elliott is getting back to full strength. The talented rookie missed the Cowboys first preseason game against the Rams, and we'll have to see whether or not he's going to be available for the second game against the Dolphins on Friday.

  Cowboys | Dak Prescott makes most of chance    Sat Aug 13, 11:08 PM

Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott made the start in the preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 13, against the Los Angeles Rams with QB Tony Romo resting. Prescott sizzled, completing 10 of his 12 pass attempts for 139 yards and two touchdowns, including one to Dez Bryant. His two incompletions were dropped passes, too.

Footballguys view: Prescott is an intriguing dynasty prospect, and he could be groomed as the QB of the future for the Cowboys. The rookie from Mississippi State reminds us of Donovan McNabb because of his arm strength and athleticism combination. We're interested in seeing his growth and development as a pro.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott unlikely for preseason opener    Wed Aug 10, 01:09 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) is doubtful for the preseason opener against the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday, Aug. 13, with a tight hamstring.

Footballguys view: All outward signs have pointed to this being minor and Elliott's absence being precautionary, but if he doesn't practice next week or play in preseason Week 2, it might be time to reassess his place in our rankings.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Aug. 4, according to head coach Jason Garrett, and is considered day-to-day.

Footballguys view: We still like Elliott in the first round but this is something that bears careful monitoring. Hamstring injuries are funny - they can amount to nothing or they can linger for months. We're hoping this is the former, not the latter because it's hard to resist this talent behind that offensive line.

  Cowboys | Josh McCown a focus of Dallas    Thu Aug 4, 09:00 AM

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown has become a target of the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys do not want a repeat of last year and now that Kellen Moore is down with a fractured fibula, they will find another competent backup. Foles has shown flashes of talent and we believe he could develop into a decent starter again in the right situation. He'd have no value save for Romo owners but worth watching.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott should return soon    Wed Aug 3, 06:55 PM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) is expected to be sidelined for about a week because of his hamstring injury, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Elliott is going to be the centerpiece of the Cowboys offense, so the team is wisely approaching this--what appears to be mild--injury. We may not see the rookie RB until the second week of the preseason with the timetable for return. However, we should see plenty of him before the start of the regular season so long as the injury isn't aggravated.
