Cowboys | Dallas won't give away Ronald Leary

Fri, 27 May 2016 18:09:58 -0700

Dallas Cowboys OG Ronald Leary has been told he can look around for a potential trade partner, but executive vice president Stephen Jones said Dallas isn't "in the business" of trading good players for nothing.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris not available

Thu, 26 May 2016 19:09:27 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris and RB Darren McFadden are not available for trade, executive vice president Stephen Jones said Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: After selecting Ezekiel Elliott with the No. 4 pick in the NFL draft, the fantasy value of both McFadden and Morris takes a major hit. McFadden is worth grabbing later in drafts, but it would take an injury to Elliott for McFadden to become a starting-caliber back.

Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott must earn starting job

Thu, 26 May 2016 10:20:54 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott must compete to earn a starting role this year, according to running backs coach Gary Brown. Elliott was drafted fourth overall by the Cowboys and will compete with RBs Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris. "It's a lot faster pace," Elliott said. "The game moves so much faster. Yesterday, I'm not going to lie, I was a little bit shell-shocked. But today I came out. I was a little bit more prepared and was more ready mentally so it was a little bit easier for me."

Fantasy Tip: This is probably just coach speak. Dallas wouldn't have used a top-five pick on a running back if they weren't prepared to start him immediately. Elliott was the top back in the draft by a long shot, and he should contribute nicely for fantasy owners immediately behind an elite offensive line. Take Elliott as an RB2 with upside for more in 2016.

Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott working with second team

Wed, 25 May 2016 22:59:33 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been working with the second-team offense during organized team activities this week. RB Darren McFadden has been working with the starting offense.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Elliott will be the starter in Week 1, but he likely will become the starter at some point during his rookie season. Elliott should be considered a No. 2 running back in most leagues because should see plenty of touches each week. McFadden should be considered a No. 3 running back since he likely will see his carries drop as the season goes on.

Cowboys | Tony Romo feeling great

Wed, 25 May 2016 12:26:46 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) isn't worried about his long-term future and thinks he can play four or five more years. He also said he feels "ahead of the game" in his offseason work. Quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said Romo has looked "phenomenal" in offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: The biggest issue with Romo is his terrible track record of health. He has the weapons around him on offense and an elite offensive line at his disposal to put up big numbers if he can just stay healthy. Health risks make him more of a fringe QB1, though, and he's safer as your backup.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant to have X-rays

Wed, 25 May 2016 12:18:20 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) will have more X-rays on his injured right foot soon, and he hopes to participate more as the offseason progresses. Bryant admitted that he needs to be patient during his recovery, but said he feels great. He did participate in the early part of organized team activities Wednesday, May 25, before his rehabilitation.

Fantasy Tip: It would behoove the Cowboys, and Bryant, to take it easy with him this offseason. Bryant is no stranger to the injury bug. If he comes into the 2016 healthy then he's worth selecting as a midrange WR1.

Fri, 20 May 2016 08:53:40 -0700

Dallas Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith (knee) signed his four-year, $6.494 million rookie deal Friday, May 20. He will receive a $2.9 million signing bonus. Smith will likely open training camp on the non-football injury list and could miss his entire rookie season.

Cowboys | Terrance Williams not worried

Thu, 19 May 2016 13:46:11 -0700

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."

Fantasy Tip: Williams enters the 2016 season as the Cowboys' No. 2 wide receiver again behind Dez Bryant. He doesn't catch a ton of balls, but he is a legitimate deep threat, gaining a career-high 840 yards in 2015. Williams should be viewed as a WR4 this season.

Wed, 18 May 2016 19:58:04 -0700

Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott signs rookie contract

Wed, 18 May 2016 11:53:59 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott signed his rookie four-year deal Wednesday, May 18, worth $24.9 million. The deal includes a $16.3 million signing bonus. All first-round picks have a fifth-year option in their deals.

Fantasy Tip: Elliott has received a lot of hype already, and he has arguably the best offensive line in front of him. He's a midrange RB2 in fantasy, but the hype may make it tough to snag him as such.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant out for OTAs

Wed, 18 May 2016 06:16:45 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant required a second surgery on his broken foot, which is pretty common. If he has a good camp, he shouldn't pose much risk as a high-end WR1 in fantasy.
