Cowboys | Lance Dunbar passes physical

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 14:49:29 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) passed his physical Monday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar was a pass-catching machine last year before tearing multiple ligaments. He'll play behind Ezekiel Elliott and probably at least Darren McFadden, too, but he should still have a role in the passing game as long as he's healthy. Take a chance on him as a late-round flier in PPR drafts.

Cowboys | Two Dallas backs in pads Monday

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 15:36:30 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: Both Dunbar and McFadden would be beneficial to the Cowboys' passing game upon their return. It's not clear exactly when they will return, though, and Ezekiel Elliott remains the primary running back. Dunbar and McFadden are still worth mid- to late-round consideration, with added value in PPR leagues.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar ready by end of camp?

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 06:47:37 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar has the skill set for a late PPR flyer, but the crowded backfield leaves him a question mark. Ezekiel Elliott, Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris could all be ahead of him, but it wouldn't be a shock to see Dunbar beat out the latter two for a roster spot. Continue to monitor his progress.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar close to being ready

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 15:17:50 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) could be ready to go "sooner than later," according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar caught 21 passes through four games last year and looked like an emerging PPR standout before sustaining his knee injury. He'll compete with Darren McFadden, Alfred Morris and Darius Jackson for playing time and potentially a roster spot. For now, Dunbar is a fringe flier in the late rounds of deep leagues, but there is some upside if everything falls into place for the capable pass catcher.

Cowboys | Minimal work for Lance Dunbar

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 12:46:05 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) was a part of pre-practice work Wednesday, June 1, before leaving for rehabilitation. Dunbar is still recovering from several torn ligaments in his knee. He could begin the 2016 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar really broke out last year, particularly in the passing game, before his gruesome injuries. If/when he does return to the field, he'll likely be behind Ezekiel Elliott, Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris, so Dunbar's fantasy value is almost non-existent right now.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar likely will be on PUP list

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 10:18:14 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) likely will be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list at some point next season.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar is working his way back from several torn ligaments in his knee and may not be ready for the start of the 2016 season. Dunbar likely will be a third-down back when he plays but likely will not have a lot of fantasy value.

Cowboys | No timetable for Lance Dunbar

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 14:12:52 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: It's no surprise that Dunbar has a lengthy rehabilitation with the severity of the injuries he went through. He proved his worth primarily as a pass-catching running back last season and is still worth a stash in PPR leagues even if he's not able to play right away.

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 08:46:46 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) just starting jogging and said there is no timeline for his return.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar seems iffy for the beginning of the season but could become a factor later on. Keep an eye on his progress.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar re-signs with Cowboys

Thu, 17 Mar 2016 14:36:26 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar re-signed a one-year deal worth $1.75 million with the Cowboys Thursday, March 17, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys are widely speculated to take a running back early in this year's draft, but Dunbar returning gives them more depth behind the injury-prone Darren McFadden in case they don't. The fourth-year back had just five carries for 67 yards after tearing his ACL in Week 4, and he added 21 catches for 215 yards. Depending on what Dallas does at the position in the draft, Dunbar could be worth a late-round flyer in deeper leagues in PPR formats.
