Tony Romo - QBPosted 1/20/17 9:14am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has already said he wants to continue playing, but Bryan Broaddus of the team's official website believes retirement is a serious possibility for the quarterback this offseason.
Huddle Up: Even though a healthy Romo would still better than roughly half of the starting quarterbacks in the league, it would be hard to blame him if he chose to leave the game given his age (turns 37 in April) history of back injuries. Ultimately, he'll probably try to squeeze out one more year, although it is highly unlikely he will do so in Dallas.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 1/16/17 6:51am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten plans to return in 2017 for his 15th season.
Huddle Up: Witten will be 35 in May and had a decent 69-673-3 campaign in 2016. He'll be a midrange PPR tight end with minimal upside.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 1/16/17 9:36pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is 'not going to be on (the team) in 2017,' according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who states that trading the veteran quarterback is their 'No. 1 priority this offseason.'
Huddle Up: It's looking like a certainty that Romo will not be with the only team he has ever known next season. The only question is where he ends up, and with a good number of teams seeking to rectify their starting quarterback situation this offseason, the 12-year veteran figures to land in a spot where he'll get another chance again right out of the gate. This should be one of the more interesting storylines of the upcoming offseason.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 1/15/17 9:11am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten has not caught a touchdown in any of his seven career playoffs games.
Huddle Up: Witten has posted solid receiving numbers in his previous playoff games and should see a solid amount of targets against the Green Bay Packers. He should be considered a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues even if he does not score a touchdown.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 1/15/17 10:49am ET
The Denver Broncos are not inclined to trade for Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo this offseason even though they are Romo's No. 1 preferred spot, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Romo probably will not be back with the Cowboys next season after Dak Prescott's season, but he should be able to find a starting job with a team this offseason. Romo has shown he can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in the past and could be one again in 2017 depending on his team.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 1/15/17 5:34pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott had 22 carries for 125 yards in a 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 15.
Huddle Up: Dallas came out on the losing end, but Elliott delivered another strong performance. He should be a top-five pick in all formats next season.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 1/15/17 5:30pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 24 of his 38 pass attempts for 302 yards, three touchdowns and an interception and ran for 13 yards in a 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 15.
Huddle Up: After a brilliant rookie season that no one could have predicted, Prescott is already in the mix as a QB1 heading into 2017.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 1/15/17 5:49pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant had nine catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 15.
Huddle Up: Bryant was an all-or-nothing fantasy play for much of this season, but when healthy, he still showcased WR1 upside. If he slips a bit in 2017 drafts, he could end up being a steal for fantasy owners.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 1/15/17 5:59pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten had six catches for 59 yards and his first postseason touchdown in a 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 15.
Huddle Up: Witten can still be counted on for a handful of catches per game, but he does his damage on underneath coverage and offers little upside. Draft him as a TE2 in 2017.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 1/11/17 6:43am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott was involved in a minor car accident Wednesday, Jan. 11, near the team's practice facility in Frisco, Texas. There were no injuries sustained as a result of the minor crash, according to the Frisco police department.
Huddle Up: Zeke should be fine, but keep an eye on him the next couple of days to be sure. He's an elite RB1 against the Green Bay Packers this weekend.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 1/11/17 8:44am ET
Updating an earlier report, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is fine after his 'minor fender bender' Wednesday, Jan. 11, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Elliott was at practice 20 minutes after the accident.
Huddle Up: It's a good sign he was able to practice, but there is still a possibility of whiplash or something else popping up in the next day or two. Monitor him the next couple of days, but he's an elite RB1 against the Green Bay Packers this weekend.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 1/8/17 3:54pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is not likely to draw interest from the Denver Broncos in the offseason because of the their offensive line issues and their belief in QB Trevor Siemian and investment in QB Paxton Lynch, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.
Huddle Up: Romo's name is going to be tossed about in a lot of rumors this offseason. If he ends up starting for a decent team, he will have QB1 upside. However, don't count on the fragile veteran carrying your fantasy team.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 1/5/17 11:00am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott said he is feeling good and expects to receive more touches during the playoffs.
Huddle Up: Elliott led the NFL in rushing during the regular season with 1,631 yards and 322 carries but appears to be ready for even more work in the playoffs. He will be a must-start option in all fantasy playoff leagues as long as the Cowboys are playing.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 1/1/17 1:55pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo played one series in the team's 27-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 1. Romo was 3-for-4 for 29 yards and threw his first touchdown pass in 14 months.
Huddle Up: It's just one series, but Romo proved he could snap back in a second and play ball once again. Whether Romo stays in Dallas or goes elsewhere remains to be seen. For now, mainly because of his long layoff, Romo carries QB2 status with a good chance to go back to QB1 depending on his health and where he plays.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 1/1/17 2:22pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott finished with 1,631 rushing yards, which was 178 yards shy of the rookie record set by Eric Dickerson.
Huddle Up: It wouldn't have been likely for Elliott to break that record had he played, but Elliott still had a fantastic rookie season. He is a solid RB1 with a decent chance at NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 12/30/16 5:14am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott won't play the whole game in Week 17 as QBs Tony Romo and Mark Sanchez are expected to play an undetermined role as well.
Huddle Up: It could be a situation like a preseason game where he plays the first half and comes out. Due to such, he really isn't worth rolling the dice on in fantasy this week against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 12/30/16 10:50am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (illness) is hopeful to play Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles despite dealing with an illness.
Huddle Up: McFadden is expected to receive the majority of the touches versus the Eagles since Dallas has nothing to play for this weekend, but his illness leaves the door open for Alfred Morris and Lance Dunbar to play a larger-than-anticipated role. It's shaping up as a situation DFS owners will want to avoid.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 12/30/16 4:45pm ET
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (illness) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: McFadden should be in uniform against the Philadelphia Eagles and is expected to receive significant playing time since Ezekiel Elliott probably will see limited touches. Owners in most leagues should consider McFadden as a flex option.
Terrance Williams - WRPosted 12/29/16 7:14pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 29, due to a personal matter.
Huddle Up: Check back on his status closer to Sunday, but if Dallas elects to rest its stars, Williams could be a beneficiary if he plays.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 12/27/16 4:31pm ET
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said the 'preliminary plan' for the team's Week 17 game against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, Jan. 1, is to play the starters who are healthy.
Huddle Up: Garrett has been maintaining this all along, so there should be no doubts that the starters will at least get some work in during the season finale. The question is exactly how much playing time the Dallas starters will receive, especially after the likes of Dak Prescott, Dez Bryant and Ezekiel Elliott were done after the third quarter Monday night, but that could be attributed to the contest being a blowout. Either way, all the regulars on offense will be risky plays.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 12/26/16 7:55am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will play in Week 17, along with the starters, as normal, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
Huddle Up: This will be subject to change because the Cowboys have nothing to play for as far as seeding goes. The Detroit Lions could still be playing for the division crown next week, which means Prescott is a dicey start next week.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 12/26/16 7:54am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will play in Week 17, along with the starters, as normal, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
Huddle Up: This will be subject to change because the Cowboys have nothing to play for as far as seeding goes. The Detroit Lions could still be playing for the division crown next week. Elliott has had a big workload this year, and there's no reason for him to see his normal work. Monitor this outlook through the week, but he's probably not going to be an RB1 you can bank on.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 12/26/16 4:12pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (back) is active Monday, Dec. 26, against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Keep Bryant in the starting lineup if you have him, but be prepared for less playing time than usual. The Cowboys have already clinched the No. 1 seed for the NFC playoffs so they may rest some starters later in the game.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 12/26/16 6:52pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant recorded his 66th career touchdown near the end of the second quarter in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 26. That score breaks a tie for second-place in franchise history, surpassing WR Michael Irvin.
Huddle Up: Bryant has racked up five touchdowns over his past six and a half games, with one more half left to play in the Monday night. He has three grabs for 51 yards so far.
Terrance Williams - WRPosted 12/26/16 9:48pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams hauled in four receptions for 61 yards in the Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 26. Williams was targeted four times.
Huddle Up: Williams has become busier in recent weeks, posting 14 receptions for 180 yards and a score over his past four games. Still, that only makes him worth a look as a WR4 in deeper fantasy leagues for those playing into Week 17.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 12/26/16 9:45pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten posted two receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 26. He was targeted four times.
Huddle Up: Witten scored his first touchdown since Week 9 in Cleveland. He remains a decent low-end TE1 heading in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams for those playing into Week 17.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 12/26/16 9:45pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden rushed a team-high 14 times for 49 yards in the Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 26. He was targeted once but had zero receptions.
Huddle Up: McFadden was allowed to knock off some rust in the second half with the team resting Ezekiel Elliott, preserving their star rookie with home-field advantage already sewn up. McFadden could see extensive playing time in Week 17 if the team elects to rest their regulars.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 12/26/16 9:44pm ET
Dallas Cowboys rookie RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 12 times for 80 yards with two touchdowns in the Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 26. He also added one catch for 12 yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Elliott was rested for a good chunk of the second half, as the Cowboys had a healthy lead. It also allowed them to have Darren McFadden knock off some rust after a long layoff. Zeke is well short of the single-season rushing record by a rookie, and it's unlikely he'll come close to the 177 yards he needs to pass Eric Dickerson (1,808 yards, 1983).
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 12/26/16 9:44pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (back) hauled in four receptions for 70 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 26, and he added another on a 10-yard touchdown pass.
Huddle Up: Bryant was listed on the injury report with a back injury, but that did not seem to affect him at all. He rewarded his patient fantasy owners with his biggest game of the season when it mattered most. It wouldn't be surprising to see the oft-injured wideout rested in Week 17 with home-field advantage already sewn up for the Cowboys.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 12/26/16 8:05pm ET
Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott completed 15 of his 20 pass attempts for 212 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 26. He also rushed four times for 35 yards.
Huddle Up: The only things that can slow down Prescott are the New York Giants, and perhaps rest in Week 17 with the team already having clinched home-field advantage through the NFC playoffs. Fantasy owners playing into the final week of NFL will want to be careful with the rookie.
