  Cowboys | Tavon Austin unsure about playing status    Thu Aug 16, 06:29 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Tavon Austin (hamstring) said he is feeling good but is not sure if the coaches will allow him to play in the second preseason game.

Footballguys view: We're not sure what role he will play whenever he gets on the field, as he is listed at both running back and receiver depending on who you ask. They say he's not a gadget player. We say he's not worth rostering because then we don't know what he is.

  Cowboys | Limited practice for Tavon Austin    Thu Aug 16, 02:37 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Tavon Austin (hamstring) is on the field for practice Thursday, Aug. 16, but is not participating in team drills.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys insist he's not a gadget player but unless he's on the field we will never know. We aren't expecting much from him, especially as he is listed in several depth charts as a running back, which puts him behind Ezekiel Elliott. You can keep him off your roster in all but the deepest leagues.

  Cowboys | Cole Beasley to miss preseason game    Wed Aug 15, 09:32 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (groin) has been ruled out for the second preseason game but hopes to be able to play in the third preseason game.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys are rather thin at the WR position. Beasley should work as their slot receiver when healthy behind Allen Hurns and rookie Michael Gallup. Fantasy GMs aren't drafting Beasley and he's only got 'what the heck' flex value when on the field. Keep him on your waiver wire watch list but only in deeper leagues.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott to be used in space    Mon Aug 13, 11:58 PM

The Dallas Cowboys want to mix up their usage of RB Ezekiel Elliott in an attempt to spread out defenses. He has been lined up in the slot so he can match up against a linebacker or safety. 'It's going to be big for us in the offense,' offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said Monday, Aug. 13.

Footballguys view: Elliott should have reception totals rivaling LeVeon Bell, Todd Gurley, and David Johnson, but the Cowboys have curiously thrown to him very little for a player of his skill and ability. This year, they have no excuse with the passing game being overhauled after Jason Witten retired and Dez Bryant was released.

  Cowboys | Maliek Collins off of PUP list    Mon Aug 13, 06:40 PM

Dallas Cowboys DT Maliek Collins (foot) passed his physical and was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 13.

  Cowboys | Darren Carrington signs with Dallas    Mon Aug 13, 06:25 PM

Undrafted free-agent WR Darren Carrington II (Utah) is signing an undisclosed deal with the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Aug. 13, according to a source.

Footballguys view: At 6'2" 199 pounds, Carrington does a good job of getting down the field and tracking the ball. He's not a physical receiver and Carrington needs to clean up his route running. The Cowboys are thin at the position, but Carrington will still have a tough time cracking the 53-man roster.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott to make short preseason cameo    Sun Aug 12, 04:31 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott told reporters Sunday, Aug. 12, he expects to play 'a little bit in that third preseason game (Aug. 26, against the Arizona Cardinals), probably play the first series.' Elliott believes the coaching staff will follow a plan similar to the one he followed last preseason.

  Cowboys | Deonte Thompson positioned to make team    Sat Aug 11, 09:53 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Deonte Thompson's connection to wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal from their time together with the Buffalo Bills gives Thompson a slight edge on WR Lance Lenoir and WR Noah Brown for the final receiver spot on the 53-man roster, according to Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News.

Footballguys view: Thompson also provides a vertical element that can be used off of play action and he has been productive when given the opportunity in recent years with Chicago and Buffalo. If he doesn't make the Dallas roster, he probably won't spend long on the street.

  Cowboys | Lance Lenoir could make roster    Sat Aug 11, 09:52 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Lance Lenoir is 'making a push' to claim the final receiver spot on the 53-man roster, according to Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News.

Footballguys view: Lenoir is coming on strong and he worked with Dak Prescott in the offseason. If he doesn't make the team, he could be first in line to get a call up if injuries hit Dallas at wide receiver during the season.

  Cowboys | Noah Brown's spot in jeopardy    Sat Aug 11, 09:46 PM

  Cowboys | Michael Gallup has bright future    Sat Aug 11, 09:31 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup is a 'moldable, future really good receiver,' according to wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal.

Footballguys view: Gallup should play a large role in the Cowboys passing game, but it might be difficult for him to have consistent value in a run-first offense with a muddled picture at wide receiver. He's definitely on the late round flier radar and gaining momentum.

  Cowboys | Michael Gallup scores    Fri Aug 10, 02:55 AM

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup caught a 30-yard touchdown pass from QB Dak Prescott against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys don't have a true #1 receiver, but Gallup might be the best speculative pick in the second half of your fantasy draft. He and Prescott looked very much in sync on the score.

  Cowboys | Michael Gallup to make big impact?    Sun Aug 5, 11:15 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup should become a key target once he becomes comfortable with the offense, according to vice president Stephen Jones.

Footballguys view: Gallup is an interesting rookie out of Colorado State. He has dynamic athleticism and can make crazy catches seem routine. The Cowboys are desperate at the WR position since they've moved on from Dez Bryant and are looking for new targets in the passing game (Jason Witten retired too). Gallup could have fantasy value as a rookie based on his skill set and potential opportunity as the top target in Dallas. He's currently WR60 (13.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Cowboys | Terrance Williams fighting foot pain    Sun Aug 5, 10:34 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (foot) said Sunday, Aug. 5, that he has been practicing with foot pain throughout the offseason.

Footballguys view: Williams has flashed just a little bit as a pro but he seems to get banged up quite a bit. Here we go again with another injury. The Cowboys added Allen Hurns and rookie Michael Gallup this offseason so Williams is fourth on the depth chart (as Cole Beasley should work as the no3./slot) in 2018.

  Cowboys | No clear pecking order at TE in Dallas yet    Sun Aug 5, 03:08 PM

Dallas Cowboys TEs Dalton Schultz, Geoff Swaim and Blake Jarwin have reportedly all received equivalent reps with the first team thus far in training camp, according to Calvin Watkins of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: In other words, there's no fantasy value to be had here, especially with Rico Gathers bulked up and not figuring into the picture in a prominent way.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott in better shape    Sat Aug 4, 11:34 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is in better shape physically and mentally this year, according to running backs coach Gary Brown. 'We are going to get a good Zeke this year,' Brown said. 'He is on a mission. You can see it already.'

Footballguys view: Elliott should have a chance to be the centerpiece of the offense and set career highs in the passing game, but the quality of the offense around him is a question mark with an underwhelming group of passing game targets. He'll go in the top five of most every draft.

  Cowboys | Allen Hurns to do individual drills    Sat Aug 4, 03:12 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Allen Hurns (groin) said Saturday, Aug. 4, that he will do individual drills in practice.

Footballguys view: This is not great news for the Cowboys. They have moved on from Dez Bryant and are trying to establish a new pecking order at the WR position. Hurns could be the lead guy with rookie Michael Gallup playing a large role as well. We'll see when Hurns can get back to full participation as he has been dealing with some groin issues early in training camp.

  Cowboys | Cole Beasley standing out    Fri Aug 3, 12:33 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley has been the best receiver in camp and one of the best players overall so far, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.

Footballguys view: The experiment to put Beasley outside sometimes might be bearing fruit, but if this is true, then it increases the chances that no Cowboys receiver will be consistently relevant in fantasy leagues this year.

  Cowboys | Cole Beasley could play outside more    Tue Jul 31, 08:45 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley appears to be in the conversation to work outside more often this season after spending the majority of his career in the slot, according to comments head coach Jason Garrett recently made to The Athletic's Calvin Watkins.

Footballguys view: This could be a move to accommodate Allen Hurns penchant for playing in the slot, or perhaps just an attempt to get more value out of Beasley. Beasley doesn't seem to have the skillset to add a lot outside, so this doesn't really change his outlook for the better.

Dallas Cowboys WR Cedrick Wilson (shoulder) is being placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, July 31. Free-agent WR Ricky Jeune (Rams) was signed in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Wilson's 2018 is over. The Cowboys wide receiver corps is very unsettled long term, so Wilson should still have a shot to figure in the big picture next year. We'll come back to him in deep dynasty leagues in 2019.
