  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray credits workout partner    Sat Oct 25, 12:29 AM

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray worked out with TE Jason Witten before the team's official offseason program, and he credits the veteran tight end with his increased stamina and durability. 'It helped a lot, obviously with the stamina aspect just building a good armor for your body so you can take some hits and take the pounding of a long season,' Murray said Friday, Oct. 24. 'He's done it for a long time and he's someone who has had a lot of success in this league and he knows what to do to take care of your body in season and out of season, so it helped extremely a lot and I have to thank him and we're still working together.'

  Cowboys | Gavin Escobar seeing more playing time    Fri Oct 24, 02:45 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar is moving closer to 50 percent of the offensive snaps as the team uses fewer three-wide receiver sets. Escobar had three catches for 65 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 7 win over the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: Escobar is a good desperation play at tight end this week if you are covering a bye or filling in for an injured Owen Daniels. He is also clearly worth a stash in TE premium and deep dynasty leagues.

Dallas Cowboys DT Amobi Okoye (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Oct. 23, for the first time this season. Okoye has been on the team's Reserve/Non-Football Injury list while recovering from a brain condition. There is still no guarantee that Okoye will play this season.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo participates in walk-through    Thu Oct 23, 01:21 PM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) participated in the team's walk-through Thursday, Oct. 23. Romo did not participate in the team's full practice.

Footballguys view: This is a good sign because the team clearly expects him to play since he's involved in the walk-through. We still see him as a QB1 in Week 8 against Washington.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo to miss practice    Thu Oct 23, 11:42 AM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (ankle, back) will not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: We're not seriously worried though it's worth keeping an eye on. The Cowboys are likely just giving their quarterback a little rest and Romo should play against Washington on Monday night. We expect top 10 fantasy quarterback numbers against a shaky Washington defense.

  Cowboys | Cut Michael Sam     Tue Oct 21, 03:18 PM

The Dallas Cowboys cut DE Michael Sam from the team's practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 21.

Footballguys view: Sam has now been bounced from two team's this year after he failed to make the Rams roster at the end of training camp. He's an effort player, but a one-dimensional pass-rusher and that's hurting his ability to stick with a team. We'll see if someone makes a move to add him to their practice squad.

  Cowboys | Brandon Carr hurts hamstring    Mon Oct 20, 05:37 PM

  Cowboys | Tony Romo shines again    Sun Oct 19, 11:17 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo was 17-for-23 for 279 yards and three touchdowns in the Week 7 win over the New York Giants, and two touchdowns went to TE Gavin Escobar. 'I'd have to say that may be (the) best game I've ever seen Tony Romo play,' owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. 'That was an outstanding game. He was pinpointing the ball, making the kind of plays and protecting the ball.' Romo said his surgically repaired back felt fine during the game, and he needed a toradol shot before the game to help with his bruised ribs and sprained ankle.

  Cowboys | Another TD for Terrance Williams    Sun Oct 19, 10:39 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams had an 18-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter of the Week 7 game against the New York Giants. It was his sixth scoring catch, eclipsing his previous best of five in his rookie season last year.

Footballguys view: Williams has six touchdowns, but he also has 1 or 2 catches in five of seven games. He's a risky WR3/Flex with limited upside until you have big play bonuses.

  Cowboys | Dez Bryant has big yardage total    Sun Oct 19, 10:38 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant racked up nine receptions for 151 yards in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants. It was the third-most yards of his career. It was also his 12th career 100-yard game to tie for seventh place on the team's all-time list in that category. Six of his catches were good for first downs, tying for the fourth-most in a single game in his career.

Footballguys view: Bryant took over in the second half and could not be effectively covered. He was a tough out after the catch and in general looked like the force that was expected when he went in the first half of most fantasy drafts. He should beat up on a hapless Washington secondary next Monday night.

  Cowboys | Gavin Escobar has career day    Sun Oct 19, 10:38 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar had career-highs with three receptions, 65 yard and two touchdowns in Week 7 against the New York Giants. It was his first multi-touchdown game.

Footballguys view: Escobar has come a long way under the tutelage of new TE coach Mike Pope. He's worth a look against Washington on Monday night this week if you like to stream tight ends.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray makes NFL history    Sun Oct 19, 09:26 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is the first played in NFL history with over 100 rushing yards in each of his first seven games to begin a season, surpassing Hall of Fame RB Jim Brown.

Footballguys view: Murray has certainly led most everyone who drafted him to very hot starts in their fantasy leagues. He should benefit from the extra day of rest before Monday night's game against Washington. Murray had to have his ankle re-taped after planting his toe awkwardly and didn't seem as sharp at the end of the game as he was in Week 6.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray leaves briefly    Sun Oct 19, 06:05 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (ankle) left the Week 7 game against the New York Giants briefly due to an ankle ailment. He had his right ankle re-taped, and he was able to return.

Footballguys view: Murray's toe planted awkwardly and he stumbled to the ground on what could have been a much longer run. He is back in the game and his owners can breathe again.

Dallas Cowboys LB Bruce Carter (thigh) and OT Doug Free (foot) both did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and have been ruled out for Week 7.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys offensive line has been setting the pace in the NFC, so the loss of Free could be costly. Watch to see if Dallas is effective running right against the Giants.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo having fine season    Fri Oct 17, 01:15 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has been incredibly effective this season, ranking fourth in passer rating (100.5). He has completed 68.6 percent of his passes for 1,510 yards and 11 touchdowns with just five interceptions. Romo has been more productive while sitting out of practices on Wednesdays to focus on core-strengthening exercises. He has completed 70.2 percent of his passes for 1,053 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions in the last four games. The last two games, Romo has shown an ability to escape the pocket and make plays deep down the field.

Footballguys view: Romo is back to being a low QB1 against the Giants at home this weekend.

  Cowboys | Dez Bryant a full go    Thu Oct 16, 04:12 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (shoulder) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie likely won't play which leaves Prince Amukamara as the only really good corner on the field most downs. So Dez Bryant should have a very good day and is a fantastic WR1.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray practices in full    Thu Oct 16, 04:09 PM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (illness) returned to a full practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Murray is our top fantasy running back this week and should do well against a Giants run defense which was lit up by LeSean McCoy last weekend. Prior to that game, McCoy had not run for 100 yards all season. So yes, Murray is a great start as an RB1.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (ankle, back) has his left ankle taped during practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo taking part in practice    Thu Oct 16, 12:30 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (ankle, back) is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Romo is going to give you a tiny scare every week as the team rests him but he'll be fine and will most weeks. We have Romo as a great QB2 or a low-end QB1 option this week. Which Giants team will show up is your biggest question? The team which looked so good in Weeks 3 through 5 or the one which imploded in Week 6? We think more of the latter than the former and Romo should be fine.
