    Posted 8/24/16 4:48pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (concussion) didn't make the trip to Seattle for the team's next preseason game Thursday, August 25.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has already been ruled out for the game, but fortunately, this concussion doesn't figure to threaten his status for the season opener in just a few weeks. As long as he's able to stay healthy, unlike a year ago, Bryant has the potential to pace all wide receivers in fantasy. He's still worth being drafted in the earliest rounds.

    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.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has two weeks to recover before the start of the season, and that might be questionable with all of the phases of the protocol he has to clear. This could cause him to slip to a low-end WR1.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB
    Posted 8/23/16 9:05am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Elliott has been one of the most hyped players this offseason, and it's understandable for how dynamic he was at Ohio State and the great offensive line in front of him. However, there is considerable risk in taking him as an RB1 with no experience and no safety net of proof that he can hold up for a full NFL season.

    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.

    Huddle Up: It is now known how much playing time Elliott will receive if he is active for the game, but it is a good sign that he is close to playing. He should receive a majority of the carries this season and should be a considered a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

    Posted 8/20/16 5:19am ET

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

    Huddle Up: Elliott has dealt with the hamstring injury for over a week but has been able to return to practice recently. He may see limited playing time in the next preseason game but appears to be on track for Week 1. He should be a No. 1 running back in all leagues as long as he is healthy.

  • Dak Prescott - QB
    Posted 8/19/16 7:22pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Prescott is well on his way to securing the backup quarterback job. He has flashed enough potential to add in all keeper leagues, and he would be a speculative add in all formats if Tony Romo suffers another injury.

  • Dak Prescott - QB
    Posted 8/19/16 8:46pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Prescott's impressive preseason continued, and the small sample is enough to warrant a speculative stash in dynasty formats.

  • Alfred Morris - RB
    Posted 8/19/16 9:11pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: With Darren McFadden out for the foreseeable future, Morris is must-own handcuff if you are an Ezekiel Elliott owner. If he ends up starting at any point, Morris could produce RB2 numbers behind Dallas' offensive line.

  • Dez Bryant - WR
    Posted 8/18/16 9:50am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: The healthy status is what everyone should be focused on with Bryant. He's a physical beast when he is on his game and warrants WR1 placement near the turn of the first and second rounds of fantasy drafts.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB
    Posted 8/17/16 9:03am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Elliott is the most celebrated fantasy rookie out there and the centerpiece of the "Keep Tony Romo Healthy" movement in Dallas, so there's no reason to push him with the opener still almost a month off. He's in a great position to succeed as an RB1; now he just needs to get healthy and stay that way.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB
    Posted 8/16/16 10:36pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 16. The extent of his participation was not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Good next step for the top fantasy rookie, and the next one will be seeing him play in the preseason. Stay tuned ...

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB
    Posted 8/15/16 3:55pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: Good to see some signs of progress from the fourth-overall pick who missed the Cowboys' preseason opener Saturday, but it's still too early to tell if he'll be able to make it back for Game 2. Needless to say, more than a few fantasy GMs are eager to get their first glimpse of Elliott in game action.

  • Lance Dunbar - RB
    Posted 8/15/16 7:33pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RBs Darren McFadden (elbow) and Lance Dunbar (knee) were in pads on the side for their rehabilitation work Monday, Aug. 15.

    Huddle Up: It's a positive sign that both guys were in pads but they're still not ready to get back on the field. The Cowboys are hoping McFadden will be ready for Week 1. He'll be Dallas No. 2 back and should see some work on passing downs.

  • Tony Romo - QB
    Posted 8/13/16 11:51pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: It was only one game but Prescott looked sensational. He was in command of the offense and threw darts to his receivers. The Cowboys may still bring in a veteran but knowing Jerry Jones, he'll probably roll the dice with the guy he drafted backing up Tony Romo.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB
    Posted 8/10/16 1:23pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Since he hasn't practiced, the Cowboys won't put him out there, and there's no sense in risking further injury for a meaningless contest. Elliott remains a mid-range RB1 for the bold, and you'll have to pay the price to land him.

  • Darren McFadden - RB
    Posted 8/10/16 9:47pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) is working hard in his recovery from offseason elbow surgery but is not expected to play in the near future, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

    Huddle Up: McFadden will likely sit out the entire preseason. The Cowboys are hoping he'll be ready by Week 1 but it's not a given. McFadden is battling Alfred Morris to be the Cowboys primary No.2 back this season.

  • Dak Prescott - QB
    Posted 8/5/16 3:39pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott took snaps ahead of QB Jameill Showers during practice Thursday, Aug. 4.

    Huddle Up: As it should be with a fourth-round pick running ahead of a second-year undrafted free agent, but there's little chance the Cowboys go on much longer without acquiring some veteran experience to back up Tony Romo after the disastrous turn the Cowboys' 2015 season took with Romo out.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB
    Posted 8/4/16 8:26am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Elliott probably will miss the first preseason game, but it appears he will be fine for the start of the regular season. He is expected to receive most of the carries this season and should be selected in the first round of drafts.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB
    Posted 8/3/16 1:29pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has a sore right hamstring and will miss 'some time,' according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. Jones noted the organization will be cautious with him, and there is no concrete timeline for Elliott's return, but the team is not looking to add another running back.

    Huddle Up: This likely won't amount to anything more than an early-camp hammy footnote, but we are talking about the top rookie -- and one of the top RBs -- coming off the board in drafts here, so it's going to get more than than its fair share of attention.

  • Tony Romo - QB
    Posted 8/2/16 8:40am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) says he is not out of shape and laughed off the criticism after a photo circulated social media sites that appeared to show drastic weight gain on his behalf.

    Huddle Up: In fairness to Romo, he's no 2015 Eddie Lacy in the photo in question. Romo may have packed on a couple of pounds, or perhaps he was wearing a rib protector for some unknown reason, but it should not come anywhere near the top of your concerns list when drafting him. That list should read: collarbone, collarbone, collarbone. Romo is a QB2 with big-time risk attached.

  • Kellen Moore - QB
    Posted 8/2/16 11:01pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys backup QB Kellen Moore (ankle) suffered a broken ankle Tuesday, Aug. 2, team owner and general manager Jerry Jones confirmed.

    Huddle Up: Perhaps this will settle the Cowboys' indecision over signing free-agent Nick Foles with fourth-round pick the only other backup of note on the Dallas roster.

  • Dez Bryant - WR
    Posted 8/1/16 8:07am ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant dropped multiple passes in individual drills during his first practice Saturday, July 30.

    Huddle Up: Bryant should shake off the rust by the time Week 1 rolls around. His value is heavily tied to the fragile collarbone of Tony Romo, but Bryant should still be drafted in the first couple of rounds as a WR1.

  • Darren McFadden - RB
    Posted 7/24/16 1:01pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) will have a scan on his broken elbow Monday, July 25, and he said hopes to return during the preseason.

    Huddle Up: McFadden is hoping to return earlier than originally expected, but regardless, top-pick Ezekiel Elliott remains the Cowboys' projected top back and workhorse.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB
    Posted 7/22/16 1:31pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott was accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend Friday, July 22, but was not arrested, according to a police report filed in Ohio. The league will review the accusation under its personal conduct policy, but Elliott denied the accusations. The police report cites four witnesses who each said the assault did not take place.

    Huddle Up: Not the pre-training camp headlines the fourth-overall pick and projected fantasy stud needed to generate as the rookie is encroaching into no-tolerance territory in the new NFL. Elliott appears clear initially, but let's see what develops.

  • Lance Dunbar - RB
    Posted 7/19/16 4:24pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) hasn't been totally ruled out to return during training camp, and he's ahead of schedule in his rehab.

    Huddle Up: Dunbar's playing time was trending in the right direction last season as he logged a career-most 47 touches in only four games before his injury, but the Big D backfield has only grown more crowded in the meantime with the additions of first-round pick Ezekiel Elliott and free-agent Albert Morris. That and the lingering injury recovery knocks Dunbar off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest of leagues.

  • Gavin Escobar - TE
    Posted 7/10/16 5:57pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar (Achilles') is expected to begin the season on the PUP list after suffering a torn right Achilles' tendon in Week 15 last year.

    Huddle Up: That almost ensures another full dose of Jason Witten at tight end in Big D as even when he's played a whole season, Escobar never has caught more than nine passes or accumulated more than 134 receiving yards in a single campaign.

  • Dez Bryant - WR
    Posted 7/8/16 2:14pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) said his hardships last season were more mental than physical. Bryant said he was off his game from a mental standpoint, and the waiting while he was injured was also difficult.

    Huddle Up: Bryant -- and the whole Dallas offense seemed to be off all last season -- but we're banking on a bounce-back as Bryant checks in as the No. 6 WR in the Huddle's preseason rankings.

  • Rolando McClain - LB
    Posted 6/30/16 3:55pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain was suspended 10 games Thursday, June 30, for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: An IDP-league alert that means more bad news for the Dallas D as McClain finished 2015 as the team's third-leading tackler (80 total) last season.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB
    Posted 6/28/16 4:26pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys rookie RB Ezekiel Elliott could receive 280 to 300 carries in his rookie season, in the opinion of David Helman of dallascowboys.com.

    Huddle Up: Alfred Morris and/or (the currently-injured) Darren McFadden are capble fill-in options, but Jerry Jones didn't spend the No. 4-overall pick on a 50-50 timeshare back and that's precisely why the rookie is in such high demand in drafts this summer.
