DE - DAL
This Week Outlook
Cowboys DL DeMarcus Lawrence suffered a broken foot during Wednesday's practice.
Specifically, Lawrence broke the fifth-metatarsal in his foot. Ian Rapoport notes that he should return in November. It's a major loss, but it isn't season-ending. Still. Lawrence is Dallas' best defensive player and this was a unit that didn't touch Tom Brady once in Week 1. The offensive environment for Cowboys games will be very friendly for fantasy purposes.
Star pass rusher for the Dallas Cowboys, DeMarcus Lawrence, is to be placed on the PUP list to start the season due to a back injury.
Lawrence is an anchor for the Cowboys' front seven. Hopefully he will be ready for Week 1 for Dallas.
NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo reported Monday that Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence was expected to be activated off the physically unable to perform list “soon.” As it turns out, “soon” is just one day later as the star pass-rusher was activated Tuesday.
Lawrence participated in individual drills during Tuesday’s practice. It was his first practice participation of the summer after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery. Lawrence signed a five-year, $105 million contract extension in April. The deal includes $65 million in guaranteed money and makes him the highest paid non-quarterback with $31.1 million for the 2019 season. He has recorded 25 sacks over the last two seasons.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported Friday evening that the Cowboys and star pass-rusher DeMarcus Lawrence have agreed “on basic parameters” of a five-year, $105 million contract extension. The deal includes $65 million in guaranteed money and will make Lawrence the highest paid non-quarterback with $31.1 million for the 2019 season.
The Cowboys used the franchise tag on Lawrence for the second consecutive year. However, the star defensive end had no intention of playing under the $20.5 million tag again. He has waited on surgery to repair a shoulder injury until the new deal was finished. Lawrence has been one of the most dominant pass-rushers in the league over the last two seasons with 25 total sacks and 67 QB hits in 32 games. Now he has a brand new deal to show for it.
Demarcus Lawrence recorded four solo tackles, three assisted tackles, and three tackles for loss in the Dallas Cowboys' Week 7 loss to the Washington Redskins.
Lawrence was a force yet again, although he didn't record any sacks. There aren't many safer weekly starts than Lawrence in IDP.
