Fantasy Tip: Bryant is one of the best receivers in fantasy and is arguably a lock for a first-round pick.

Dallas Cowboys WR A.J. Jenkins has improved over the last week or two after struggling immensely in the early portions of training camp. Jenkins made several one-handed catches in practice this week. "He's made a lot of progress in the last week," said wide receivers coach Derek Dooley. "He's started improving the week of practice before the Niners, he made a couple of plays there. And he picked up where he left off this week. He's made a lot of plays. He's getting a lot more comfortable out there. I'm looking forward to watching him more."

Fantasy Tip: McFadden has been marred by injuries in camp and is a handcuff to Joseph Randle or RB4 in fantasy right now.

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (neck, shoulder) said he expects to participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 26, after being limited Tuesday, Aug. 25, because of neck and shoulder soreness. McFadden believes he will be able to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.
Fantasy Tip: McFadden has dealt with minor injuries during training camp but appears ready to play in the next preseason game. McFadden is not expected to start this season but could see some carries during games and could be a late-round option as a possible handcuff to Joseph Randle.

Fantasy Tip: Scandrick is done for the season. He was considered, at least, a Top 60 fantasy option at his position in fantasy leagues which use individual defensive players (IDPs), so it is more a loss for his real team than fantasy. However, it further decreases the value of the Dallas Cowboys DST in standard fantasy formats.

Fantasy Tip: Scandrick was reportedly crying as he was taken off the field, so it appears to be rather serious. Scandrick's loss is far more damaging to his real team than those in fantasy formats which use individual defensive players (IDPs). And if he is done for the season, it would make the Dallas Cowboys DST even more unappealing than it was already heading into draft day in standard formats.

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle had seven carries for 30 yards in the preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23, against the San Francisco 49ers, while RB Darren McFadden had three totes for just four yards. RB Lance Dunbar didn't have a run from scrimmage, and managed just two grabs for three yards. "We didn't run the ball very well," head coach Jason Garrett said. "Obviously we were trying to control the line of scrimmage and didn't do a very good job of that." The team was also playing without three starters along the offensive line, so that needs to be taken into account.
Fantasy Tip: Perhaps Jerry Jones and the Dallas braintrust are re-thinking their decision to let DeMarco Murray walk in the offseason. Randle appears to be the frontrunner for the starting, and all indications are he has had the best camp, but it could be a three-headed monster with a 50-30-20 sort of split until one emerges as the clear-cut bellcow. That's just an estimate and not based on any reports, but it is something to keep in mind, especially for FantasyScore players early in the season.

Fantasy Tip: Dallas isn't going to take any unnecessary chances with their star wide receiver. They want to make sure he's fully healthy before the regular season begins. If you haven't drafted yet, take him in the late-first or early-second round.

Fantasy Tip: This may have just been a rest day for Witten as he hasn't had any reported injuries in recent weeks. The Cowboys are probably being cautious with their starting veteran tight end. He's a TE1 again this year, especially in PPR formats.
