Tony Romo - QBPosted 2/3/16 12:46pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) will be re-evaluated in four weeks before making a final decision on surgery to his left collarbone, according to sources. Romo had a CT scan a week ago on the collarbone, which showed good bone growth.
Huddle Up: Plenty of time for Romo to heal before offseason workouts begin for the Cowboys, even if he winds up having surgery in a month.
Scott Linehan - OCPosted 2/3/16 12:46pm ET
Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said he doesn't anticipate any major changes coming to the Cowboys' offense next season.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys get Tony Romo and Dez Bryant back from injury, and already have a solid offensive line. The wild card is running back, where Darren McFadden could be the solution or the team could find help via the draft or free agency. Either way, the system shouldn't change much so as long as Romo and Bryant stay healthy there is plenty of fantasy firepower in Dallas.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 1/29/16 10:07pm ET
Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said he doesn't expect any major changes in the offensive philosophy in 2016, and he added that he expects QB Tony Romo back and ready to go for the start of the season.
Huddle Up: A return to 2014's rushing-oriented attack might serve all parties better after averaging 6.3 fewer carries and nearly 30 fewer ground yards per game this past season. The return of a healthy Romo to help keep defenses honest will be a big assist in this area as well.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 1/28/16 9:53am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) is recovering from recent foot surgery at the team's facility but should be ready for offseason workouts. Executive vice president Stephen Jones said the team will manage Bryant during the offseason.
Huddle Up: 2015 was a lost season for Bryant due to the broken foot, but he should have plenty of time to get himself ready for the start of the 2016 season.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 1/28/16 10:18pm ET
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he doesn't feel pressured to draft a quarterback in 2016 as QB Tony Romo's heir apparent. 'There are many options,' Jones said. 'There's free agency ... We have to (draft a QB) to do what? We have to win a Super Bowl next year? Do we have to compete for a Super Bowl in the future? Do you have to have it in place after this draft? There's no have-to here, in my mind, because we have the luxury of having Romo here for three, four, five more years.'
Huddle Up: Jones can say what he wants now, but look for the Cowboys to either draft a QB, sign a veteran backup -- or maybe both -- this offseason as the team can't simply afford another collapse without an injured Romo, who's only played two full seasons in his last six.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 1/24/16 2:48pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) is planning to have surgery this offseason to plate his left collarbone to prevent future injuries, according to sources. Romo has fractured his collarbone three times in the past five seasons.
Huddle Up: This is reportedly a preventive procedure for the soon-to-be 36-year-old QB, who only has played three full seasons in the last eight.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 1/22/16 9:02am ET
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he is open to using the team's first-round pick, No. 4 overall, to draft an heir apparent for QB Tony Romo.
Huddle Up: Usually quiet and reserved about his plans, Jones wouldn't necessarily want to make a splash by taking a quarterback on Day One. Oh wait, who are we kidding? With Romo both aging and injury-prone the Cowboys should be looking into QB options available either with the fourth overall pick or early on Day 2. And that assumes they aren't in the market for RG3 and/or Johnny Football when they're kicked to the curb by their respective teams.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 1/21/16 11:20pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten finished as a No. 1 fantasy tight end for the twelfth season in a row.
Huddle Up: Witten caught 77 passes for 713 yards and three TDs, but his yards-per-catch average was a career-low 9.3, and no should be surprised if it's the sign of a downward track as he'll turn 34 this coming offseason.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 1/19/16 3:46pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo plans to play at least four more seasons despite turning 36 this year.
Huddle Up: Four seasons might be pushing it for Romo, who only has played three full regular seasons in the last eight years.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 1/5/16 11:30pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden had his best season since 2010, totaling 1,089 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Don't look now, but McFadden might've shedded his injury-prone tag in playing in all 16 games for the second straight season. He emerged as the Cowboys' bell-cow back with a career-most 279 touches, but don't be surprised if the Cowboys use a high draft pick on a RB come this spring.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 1/3/16 9:09pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden had 12 carries for 92 yards and five catches for 53 yards in a 34-23 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 17, reaching 1,000 yards rushing for the second time in his career.
Huddle Up: McFadden was the lone bright spot on the Cowboys' offense in 2015. After struggling in his last two seasons with the Raiders, McFadden was the most productive player on an offense ravaged by injuries. Dallas will add a running back in the offseason but McFadden has a chance to return as the lead back in 2016.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 12/30/15 4:17pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot, ankle) will be placed on Injured Reserve Wednesday, Dec. 30, and he'll miss the season finale in Week 17. Bryant will undergo a medical procedure on his foot and ankle in the near future, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
Huddle Up: Bryant never really got back up to speed since returning in Week, and he'll finish with only 31 receptions for 401 yards and three TDs in nine games.
Kellen Moore - QBPosted 12/28/15 5:02pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Kellen Moore will be the starting quarterback in Week 17 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: As expected, Moore will start against the Redskins. With Dallas playing a bunch of young guys and the Redskins potentially resting starters, Sunday's game is shaping up as a real barn-burner between these two teams.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 12/26/15 12:56pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys have finally placed Romo on IR with their season officially over. Romo should be ready for offseason programs and will make a full recovery for 2016. Assuming everything goes as planned, the Cowboys' offense will get back to normal next year with Romo under center again.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 12/26/15 5:57pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) has been ruled out for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Bryant's season is most likely done with the Cowboys out of the playoff hunt. No Dallas player outside of Darren McFadden has much fantasy value for championship week. The Cowboys are just playing out a nightmare 2015 season.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 12/25/15 9:28pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and is listed as doubtful for the Week 16 game against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Bryant simply has not been his explosive self, catching only 31 passes for 401 yards and three TDs since his Week 8 return, and there is speculation that his season could be done with the Cowboys having been eliminated from any postseason contention.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 12/22/15 10:37pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) and other veterans won't be shut down despite the team being eliminated from playoff contention, according to head coach Jason Garrett. 'If guys are capable of playing, they're playing,' Garrett said. 'The objective is to win the game in Buffalo on Sunday. Anything else is secondary to that.'
Huddle Up: Bryant at least showed some life last Saturday, hauling in first TD catch since Week 11, but his usage is definitely far below Dez standards as he's averaged only eight targets and 3.4 receptions in his nine games this season.
Matt Cassel - QBPosted 12/14/15 8:00pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Matt Cassel will start in Week 15, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
Huddle Up: Cassel has thrown for fewer than 186 yards in three of his last four starts with only TD pass during that span, but with untested Kellen Moore the only other option at the moment, it's up to the well-traveled veteran.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 12/13/15 11:20pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant finished with one catch on six targets for nine yards in a 28-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 14.
Huddle Up: It's been a lost season for Bryant. He'll be no more than a WR4 against Darrelle Revis and the Jets next week.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 12/8/15 12:05am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden rushed for 53 yards and a TD on 14 carries Monday, Dec. 7 and added a 6-yard reception in a 19-16 win over the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: McFadden somewhat salvaged his fantasy night, scoring on a 6-yard run with 1:14 remaining after losing two earlier fumbles. He left the game after his second quarter with a reported concussion/stinger scare but came back in several drives later. It was his first TD since Week 7 -- a span of 135 touches.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 12/8/15 3:43pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten posted his 1,000th career reception in the second quarter of the Week 13 game against the Washington Redskins Monday, Dec. 7.
Huddle Up: The 33-year-old just keeps chugging along, and among tight ends, Witten is tied for the third-most receptions with 60. Witten, though, ranks 12th at the position with 67 fantasy points, courtesy mainly of his relative lack of TD catches (two.). He's a high-TE2/very-low-end TE1 for the remainder of the season.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 12/5/15 9:31pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot, knee) practiced in full Saturday, Dec. 5, and is listed as probable for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Bryant will play Monday night against the Redskins. It's a good matchup but given the Cowboys' dicey quarterback situation, Bryant is no more than a boom or bust WR2 this week.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 12/4/15 12:20am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant said he finally put in a full practice Thursday, Dec. 3, since his toe injury. 'I'll tell you this. This is the best I've felt since I've been back. I'm still getting better and moving better. I'm more confident,' Bryant said. He has 23 catches for 280 yards and two touchdowns this year.
Huddle Up: Bryant's fantasy owners are hoping it translates into a breakout game Monday night against the defense giving up the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing WRs as Bryant has been held to five or fewer catches and 48 or fewer yards in five of the six games he's played in this year.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 12/1/15 2:03pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) has 'a lot of football left in him,' according to head coach Jason Garrett. 'We do think (the collarbone) is an injury that will heal,' Garrett said. 'We do think the back injury has gotten better and better over time. He's more able to handle the work day-to-day and the work week-to-week, so I think that's improved. We do think the collarbone will heal. He's got a lot of football ahead of him.'
Huddle Up: Romo will be 36 by the time next season rolls around, and while he should have a season or two left in him, it's also time for the Cowboys to start thinking about getting their QB of the future lined up.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/27/15 5:14pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) had a CT scan Friday, Nov. 27, that confirmed a hairline fracture in his left collarbone, and his season is over. He will not require surgery, according to owner Jerry Jones.
Huddle Up: Romo wound up starting only four games in this star-crossed season, and for now, the team will forge ahead with Matt Cassel, who have thrown for 902 yards, five TDs and five interceptions but is 0-4 as a starter.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 11/26/15 1:50pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is expected to be shadowed by Carolina Panthers CB Josh Norman on Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Norman has arguably been the league's best corner this season and a big reason why the Panthers have allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing WRs. Still, Tony Romo is back, and you likely don't have many better WR options than Dez.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/26/15 7:43pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo left Thursday, Nov. 26, against the Carolina Panthers and is suspected to have sustained a second fracture of his clavicle.
Huddle Up: Romo, playing in his second game back after a two-month injury absence, had his left shoulder driven into the turf on a Thomas Davis sack on the final play of the third quarter and immediately headed to the locker room for X-rays while being replaced by Matt Cassel. Needless to say, a hurtful blow for Dez Bryant and the Dallas pass-catchers and an even more damaging loss for the Cowboys as the team went 0-7 with Cassel and Brandon Weeden starting in his absence. Romo finished the game 11 of 21 for 106 yards and three interceptions -- two of which were returned for early pick-sixes.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/26/15 9:52pm ET
Updating a previous story, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) will have more tests on his injured left collarbone Friday, Nov. 27, but a source close to the situation said that Romo is 'done for the season.'
Huddle Up: There's still some hope with no official word yet, but it's looking like it might be Matt Cassel time again in Big D.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/21/15 1:00pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) has been activated from the Reserve/Designated to Return list Saturday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: As expected, Romo was activated and will start Sunday against the Dolphins for the first time since Week 2. Owners should expect Romo to be a little rusty but unless you have a clearly better option available, Romo should be in your starting lineups this week.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 11/20/15 4:05pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (groin) started having an issue with his groin Wednesday, Nov. 18, and he didn't do much in practice Thursday and was still limited Friday. He's officially listed as questionable for the Week 11 game at Miami.
Huddle Up: McFadden has avoided the big injuries have have marked his seasons past, but perhaps the heavy workload is starting to take its toll as he's averaged 26.3 touches over the last four games. It's also pertinent and interesting to note that the recently signed Robert Turbin reportedly is now No. 2 on the Cowboys' RB depth chart.
