Terrance Williams - WRPosted 5/20/16 12:49pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams is in the final year of his rookie contract, but he's focused on the upcoming season, not a possible extension or new team. 'Now, I'm just ready to be quiet and work and let my play speak for [itself],' Williams said. 'You can always talk [about] what you're going to do and then if it doesn't go as planned, it's like a slap to your face. So I'm just ready to work and just show my play.'
Huddle Up: Williams managed to post career-best numbers (52-840) -- aside from TDs (3) -- last season despite the Cowboys' QB issues, but keep in mind that was without the injured Dez Bryant for nearly half of the season. Expect his stats to take a slight dip this season if Dez can stay on the field.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 5/19/16 1:21pm ET
Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) will not take part in organized team activities next week, but he hasn't suffered any setbacks. He has done well with the conditioning and individual work so far. He is running full speed and is on pace to be ready for training camp in July.
Huddle Up: No real need to push the valuable Bryant through OTA work in May, but there will definitely be more than a few onlookers interested in how he looks come late July.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 5/13/16 9:50am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) has not had any issues physically so far during the Cowboys' offseason program, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Garrett said that Romo has almost completely integrated back into the offseason program, adding that Romo's back is feeling well, his shoulder seems fine, he's moving around well and he's made a lot of progress. Owner Jerry Jones said there's nothing negative about where Romo is in his current state. 'Everything they hoped to accomplish technically from appraisal of surgery has gone well. Everything he's done regarding his strength, everything regarding what he's wanted to do, he's been able to do,' Jones said.
Huddle Up: Expect the Cowboys to encase Romo in bubble wrap throughout the offseason; adding Ezekiel Elliott to shoulder the offensive load should help keep him upright and healthy during the regular season as well.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 5/12/16 1:06pm ET
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot, ankle) is still not quite 100 percent recovered from right foot and ankle surgeries in January, and he was limited to nine games in 2015. Executive vice president Stephen Jones issued a challenge Wednesday, May 11. 'I think one of the tough things about last year for Dez, he plays with such energy, that with the contract dispute, if you will, he wasn't around, which is business, and consequently he probably wasn't in the best shape going into the season and then you start to add the injuries when players aren't in shape and they continued on through training camp and then on into the season and we ended up not having him much last year, so if he can get his rehab done and get himself in top condition, then I think we'll see the same Dez that we saw two years ago,' Jones said.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys shelled out the big bucks but didn't exactly see a positive ROI as part of the all-around disaster the Cowboys' 2015 season was. Bryant's fantasy owners certainly can relate, and it'll be intriguing to see how the wideout responds to the challenge.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 5/10/16 9:19am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) is making good progress in his recovery from foot surgery and has not suffered any setbacks, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Garrett said he hopes Bryant will be able to participate in some of the offseason workouts but would not say if Bryant will be able to participate in the June minicamp.
Huddle Up: Bryant was disappointing as he played through injury last year, so for him to reclaim top-five receiver status--and the trust of fantasy drafters--he'll need to demonstrate he's healthy. The sooner that happens this summer, the better.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 5/10/16 4:13pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) has recovered ahead of the eight weeks at the back end of his recovery timetable, and he's expected to be a full participant in offseason practices later this month. 'He's looking good,' quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. 'We had two practices where we've been out here on the field with the guys and he's done everything. He's throwing, he's got good velocity on all of his throws, great movement in his legs. He looks like he's re-energized because he hadn't played, you know, missed the majority of the season. So he's real energized and anxious to get going.'
Huddle Up: Romo is looking to play only his third full season in the last seven, but it's going to be tougher than ever with the QB just having turned 36.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 5/8/16 9:53pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) played catch on the side during rookie minicamp over the weekend, and head coach Jason Garrett said he continues to do well with his rehab.
Huddle Up: So far, so good as Bryant's fantasy owners are counting on a big, bounce-back season from the wideout following his career-worst 31-401-3 season a year ago.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 5/5/16 12:06pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will be a valuable part of the Cowboys' offense, but defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli believes he'll help the defense, too. Marinelli said the Dallas defense will play the Dallas offense more than anyone, and guys like Elliott and WR Dez Bryant will force the defense to be physical and be better prepared for opposing offenses.
Huddle Up: To say fantasy expectations are high for the fourth-overall pick would be a gross understatement, and he tops the Huddle's list of fantasy rookies to watch. For more, check out David Dorey's breakdown article currently headlining this site.
Alfred Morris - RBPosted 5/3/16 12:38pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris said he does not regret signing with the Cowboys this offseason even though the team selected RB Ezekiel Elliott in the first round of the draft. Head coach Jason Garrett has not talked with Morris about his role on offense, but Morris is excited to compete for a job.
Huddle Up: Morris' career numbers have been trending downward, and that's obviously not a good combination with the Cowboys using the fourth-overall pick on a shiny new toy. Expect Morris and Darren McFadden to compete for No. 2 touches.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 4/28/16 9:38pm ET
The Dallas Cowboys selected Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott with the fourth overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft Thursday, April 28.
Huddle Up: With visions of their 2014 ground dominance, the Cowboys couldn't resist taking the draft's top back in Elliott, who immediately is the odds-on favorite to be the first rookie off the board in fantasy drafts this summer. In the meantime, the fantasy stocks of Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris obviously are falling fast.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/17/16 2:45pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) said he has been throwing fully for a week and a half to two weeks in his rehabilitation, adding that the experience has been good.
Huddle Up: So far, so good for the soon-to-be 36-year-old QB this offseason, but of course, he won't take a hit until August at the earliest so we won't truly know how his surgically-repaired collarbone will hold up.
Alfred Morris - RBPosted 4/17/16 10:28pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris said he doesn't care what his role will be in 2016, and he is looking forward to the opportunity to play for the Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Morris averaged nearly 270 rushes a season during his four years in D.C., but with Darren McFadden, Lance Dunbar and possibly a rookie back expected to be in the Big D backfield mix this season, expect Morris' touches to continue their downward trend.
Lance Dunbar - RBPosted 4/12/16 10:31am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) doesn't know when he'll be able to return to action after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament and patella tendon last season. There is a chance Dunbar may not be healthy enough in time for the start of the regular season, and he could be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: Dunbar was a nice PPR find for fantasy owners last season filling the pass-catching back role in Dallas. Given his recovery, or lack thereof, best not bank on him being nearly as effective--at least to start the season.
Lance Dunbar - RBPosted 3/31/16 3:50pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) just starting jogging and said there is no timeline for his return.
Huddle Up: Dunbar was on pace for a big receiving year when his season was cut short after four games, but now things are a little more complicated with Alfred Morris in the backfield mix as well.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 3/24/16 10:21am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) is doing well in his rehabilitation process for foot surgery he had this offseason, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Garrett said Bryant is around the building, has had a lot of productive days and is on schedule for the offseason program.
Huddle Up: After last year's injury-marred campaign, the Cowboys and fantasy owners need a healthy Dez in 2016. Every step Bryant takes towards playing bumps him up the receiver rankings.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 3/23/16 9:08am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden is still viewed as the starting running back, according to owner Jerry Jones, although Jones said newly acquired RB Alfred Morris will still have a substantive role.
Huddle Up: McFadden has a career history of being unable to stay healthy, so it makes sense for the Cowboys to have a competent backup at the ready. Just like they do at quarterback. Oh, wait...
Alfred Morris - RBPosted 3/22/16 12:29pm ET
Updating an earlier report, Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris signed a two-year, $3.5 million deal that could be worth as much as $5.5 million.
Huddle Up: The Big D offensive line is sure to help reverse Morris' declining numbers over the last few seasons, but we also could see a RBBC crop up in Dallas for the first time in several seasons with Darren McFadden almost certain to remain involved as well.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 3/21/16 12:20am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden will likely open 2016 as the starting running back and see a majority of the work on all downs, according to beat writer David Moore, but Moore added that he believes the team will also draft a back and transition them into a larger role as the year goes on.
Huddle Up: Believe it or not, McFadden has played a full 16 games in each of the last two seasons but is coming off a career-most 279 touches last season so the Cowboys likely aren't inclined to push things.
Lance Dunbar - RBPosted 3/17/16 9:54pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar re-signed a one-year deal worth $1.75 million with the team on Thursday, March 17, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Dunbar was well on his way to an all-around career year before a torn ACL ended his season after only four games. He should resume his third-down role complementing Darren McFadden or whoever the Cowboys' No. 1 back turns out to be.
Lance Dunbar - RBPosted 3/16/16 10:26am ET
Free-agent RB Lance Dunbar (Cowboys) is visiting the Chicago Bears Wednesday, March 16.
Huddle Up: Dunbar was a solid PPR contributor as the Cowboys' pass-catching back until a knee injury prematurely ended his 2015 season. He could fill a similar role for the Bears as a compliment to Jeremy Langford, the presumed starter with Matt Forte out of the picture.
Robert Turbin - RBPosted 3/15/16 8:50pm ET
Free-agent RB Robert Turbin (Cowboys) signed an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, March 15.
Huddle Up: Add Turbin -- he of 1,127 career rushing yards in four seasons -- to Indy RB mix behind soon-to-be 33-year-old projected starter Frank Gore.
Lance Dunbar - RBPosted 3/13/16 10:52pm ET
Free-agent RB Lance Dunbar (Cowboys) visited with the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, March 13.
Huddle Up: Dunbar was on pace for an 84-catch season before he injured a knee in Week 4 and would give the Seahawks a strong pass-catching complement to projected starting back Thomas Rawls.
Lance Dunbar - RBPosted 3/10/16 8:52am ET
Free-agent RB Lance Dunbar (Cowboys) will visit with the San Francisco 49ers, a source said Wednesday, March 9.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys were fortunate to get a major contribution from Dunbar as their pass-catching back last season, but they clearly believe running backs grow on trees as they're apparently willing to let him walk. Dunbar in San Francisco could reprise the Darren Sproles role in Chip Kelly's offense, though Kelly's inconsistent and unpredictable use of his backfield rotation would render Dunbar more of a best-ball play than a reliable weekly fantasy option.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/8/16 11:19pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) underwent successful shoulder surgery on Tuesday, March 8.
Huddle Up: With that finally out of the way, the soon-to-be-36-year-old Romo can focus on rehab and recovery and getting ready for the Cowboys' OTAs this spring.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/4/16 12:35pm ET
Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) will have surgery to insert a plate on his collarbone next week. Recovery time is expected to be six to eight weeks, and he'll be ready in advance of organized team activities May 26. Romo also considered a 'Mumford procedure' that would shave bone from the clavicle.
Huddle Up: Romo hopes his collarbone issues will finally be behind him, and they had best be as the QB certainly isn't getting any younger, turning 36 next month.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/4/16 8:25pm ET
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) will undergo a Mumford procedure on his left collarbone next week, according to a source. He had been deciding whether to have a plate put into his collarbone as late as last week. But after undergoing a CT scan Wednesday, March 2, he decided for a procedure in which the distal part of his clavicle will be shaved down to release pressure against his shoulder. A time frame for recovery is expected to be six to eight weeks, so he's expected to be able to take part in offseason workouts in May and June.
Huddle Up: Romo hopes his collarbone issues will finally be behind him, and they had best be as the QB certainly isn't getting any younger or healing any faster, turning 36 next month.
Jason Garrett -Posted 3/3/16 9:11am ET
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the Cowboys will not select a quarterback with their fourth overall pick in the NFL Draft. Head coach Jason Garrett has already said they would like to draft a quarterback, though, whenever that may be.
Huddle Up: Could be smoke, but the Cowboys seem to believe they're still a contender and they can wring a few more seasons out of Tony Romo. If that's the case, they'll draft someone who can contribute right away rather than a backup/potential future quarterback and pursue Romo insurance via another venue.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 2/28/16 2:34pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) is expected to be the Cowboys' starting quarterback for the next four to five years, according to owner Jerry Jones.
Huddle Up: Perhaps Jones and Co. should focus on seeing the soon-to-be-36-year-old Romo through a full season -- something he hasn't done since 2012 -- but if either of the two top QBs in the draft (Jared Goff or Carson Wentz) are available when they pick fourth overall, it could be tempting.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 2/28/16 9:22pm ET
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is confident the team will add a running back this offseason to work in tandem with RB Darren McFadden.
Huddle Up: The 28-year-old McFadden finished with a career-most 279 touches while playing all 16 games, and even Jones knows not to push his luck.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 2/23/16 3:22pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant visited with a doctor and had a 'great report' on his surgically repaired right foot. The Cowboys are expecting Bryant to be able to take part in the offseason program.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys and Bryant's dynasty/keeper league owners are hoping for a bounce-back season following his injury-addled 31-401-3 season of a year ago.
