Fantasy Tip: Elliott is one of the more popular names in the running back market in fantasy. As such, there's a lot of risk in taking him as your fantasy bellcow. He has one of the best offensive lines in football, but can he handle the workload? There are safer options when selecting your first running back.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden should be owned in all formats in case something happens to Ezekiel Elliott on the field or if Elliott's recent off-field issues turn out to have long-term ramifications. However, McFadden is a merely a RB4 candidate if Elliott is available.

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 they didn't see an assault take place.
Fantasy Tip: Elliott, a rookie expected to be Dallas' primary ball carrier this year, is being selected in the first round of early fantasy drafts. There's a lot of expectations on him to deliver a big season right off the bat behind an elite offensive line, but these domestic violence allegations will likely temper some optimism, at least initially. With Darren McFadden injured, Alfred Morris and Lance Dunbar could see an uptick in short-term value for the start of the year if Elliott faces any kind of suspension from the league. Stay tuned for more on whether Elliott will be suspended at all. The fact that he wasn't arrested is a good sign for him, though.

Dallas Cowboys FS J.J. Wilcox is coming off a disappointing 2015 season and could be pushed by S Byron Jones and SS Barry Church for playing time this season. Wilcox is scheduled to count $1.8 million against the salary cap, which may be too expensive for the team.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith (knee) is still not expected to be ready for the start of the regular season despite making recent progress. "Obviously Jaylon Smith will be one who will probably take some time, if not all the year, but we'll see how that goes," owner Jerry Jones said. Smith is the only Cowboy not expected to be ready for the start of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar will back up Jason Witten as long as Witten is healthy. He could steal a few touchdowns over the course of the season, but he can still be avoided in traditional leagues.

Dallas Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith's (knee) status is undetermined, according to owner Jerry Jones. "That was to be expected," Jones said. "He is not off plan at all. The rejuvenation of the nerve that would help him get in position to actually hit the field is not complete, but it is not behind. He's doing many things that would let you use the word 'progress.'"

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.

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.

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain may not be done as a Cowboy, according to owner Jerry Jones. Jones believes Dallas hasn't seen the last of the linebacker despite his 10-game suspension and considering the fact that McClain is only under contract with Dallas for 2016. LB Justin Durant was signed to fill the void left by McClain's suspension.
