Dallas Cowboys

NFC East

Fantasy Impact: Witten seems to also be interested in coaching in the future, but he's currently set on returning to the playing field in 2020. In the interview, he recognized that he may need to play for another team beyond Dallas if he wants to return in 2020. Witten wasn't a consistent option at the TE position in 2019 for fantasy purposes, and that doesn't figure to change this year.

Fantasy Impact: However, Cooper's agent has yet to open contract negotiations with Dallas, who also need to re-sign Dak Prescott this spring. Cooper was once again stellar in 2019, posting career-highs with 1,189 yards and eight TDs.

Fantasy Impact: Prescott and the Cowboys were in negotiations entering the 2019 regular season but were never able to get a deal done. The 26-year-old quarterback should command $30 million annually. Jones added that signing Amari Cooper to an extension is the team's number two priority.

Fantasy Impact: While a decision hasn't been finalized, it appears Moore will return. This makes sense given the success of the Cowboys' offense overall in 2019. Moore showed an ability to get both Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup involved while maintaining Dak Prescott as a useful fantasy quarterback. Ezekiell Elliott continued to be an RB1, but he didn't see the same target volume he has in the past, which limited his upside in 2019.

Cowboys kicker Kai Forbath made all four of his field goal attempts and all five of his extra point tries in Sunday's win over Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Forbath made all 11 of his field goal attempts since signing with the Cowboys a few weeks ago, and fantasy owners who started him in Week 17 were rewarded with at least 20 points in many formats.

Category: Game Recaps

Cowboys wide receiver Randall Cobb caught five of his six targets for 81 yards in a Week 17 win over Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Cobb's production fluctuated during his first season in Dallas, and he finished the year with 55 receptions for 828 yards and three touchdowns.

Category: Game Recaps

Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup caught five of his seven targets for 98 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's Week 17 over Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Gallup finishes up an impressive sophomore year with 66 receptions for 1,107 yards and six touchdowns while playing in 14 games.

Category: Game Recaps

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 18 times for 122 yards and a touchdown while catching three passes for two yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 over Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Elliott had another monster season in 2019, rushing for 1,357 yards and catching 54 passes for 420 yards and two touchdowns while playing in all 16 games. With changes likely coming in Dallas, Elliott should once again be a focal point of the offense next season.

Category: Game Recaps

Sean Lee finished Sunday’s 17-9 loss to the Eagles with 17 total tackles (nine solo).

Fantasy Impact: The 10-year veteran still has gas left in the tank. Lee has 83 tackles, one sack, and one interception through Week 16. He should be owned in all leagues as a low-end LB1.

Category: Game Recaps

Cowboys wide receiver Tavon Austin caught one pass for 59 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Despite only having one catch, Austin surprisingly led the Cowboys in receiving on Sunday thanks to their run-heavy approach. He has just three catches over his last eight games, however, so don't expect this kind of output too often.

Category: Game Recaps

Cowboys running back Tony Pollard rushed 12 times for 131 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 12 yards in Sunday's win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Pollard is typically the backup to Ezekiel Elliott and doesn't see a ton of work behind a workhorse like Elliott, but the Cowboys ran the ball early and often with much success on Sunday, so Pollard saw his share of touches.

The Cowboys released kicker Brett Maher. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Maher converted just 20-of-30 field goal tries this year and it was time for Dallas to move on. They have signed Kai Forbath to replace him.

Category: Transactions

Michael Bennett ended Thursday’s loss to the Bears with four tackles (two solo) and one sack.

Fantasy Impact: Bennett has 19 tackles and four sacks since joining the Cowboys earlier this season. He should be left on waivers in most leagues.

Category: Game Recaps

Darian Thompson racked up nine total tackles (seven solo) and a sack during Thursday’s 31-24 loss to the Bears. Thompson had his second straight start in place of Jeff Heath (shoulder).

Fantasy Impact: Thompson was impressive on Thursday and over the past two games, he has accumulated 15 tackles and 1.5 sacks. If Heath misses any more games, Thompson is a decent replacement player in deeper leagues.

Category: Game Recaps

Cowboys tight end Blake Jarwin caught six of his seven targets for 50 yards in Thursday's loss to the Bears in Chicago.

Fantasy Impact: Jarwin's six receptions are a season-high as he hadn't even been targeted more than four times in a game heading into Thursday's game. For the season, he young tight end has 28 receptions for 311 yards and three touchdowns.

Cowboys linebacker Leighton Vander Esch will miss his third straight game due to a neck injury on Thursday against the Chicago Bears. (Source: David Helman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Vander Esch seems to be getting closer to returning, but he has said that he wants to be sure he is 100% before returning. Joe Thomas should once again step up in his absence.

Category: Injury Updates, Transactions

Jaylon Smith racked up 14 tackles (six solo) during Thursday’s 26-15 loss to the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: Smith continues to terrorize opposing teams totaling 112 tackles through Week 13. He is an LB1 across all formats and should be started with confidence. The Dallas defense has some interesting matchups coming in which Smith will probably have a few more massive games.

Category: Game Recaps

Robert Quinn finished Sunday’s win over the Detroit Lions with three solo tackles and a sack.

Fantasy Impact: Quinn leads all Cowboys in sacks with 8.5 through Week 11. Additionally, he has 19 total tackles in the same time frame. His next best shot at another sack could come in Week 14 when Dallas will take on Chicago.

Dallas Cowboys receiver Devin Smith is a healthy inactive for Week 10 against the Minnesota Vikings. (Source: David Helman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Devin Smith is once again a healthy scratch. Far off the radar in all but the absolute deepest of leagues, it is safe to cut Smith after Week 10's heavy bye.

Category: Injury Updates

Xavier Woods racked up three solo tackles, an interception, and a forced fumble during Monday’s win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Woods is third on the team with 42 total tackles through Week 9. He is worth a roster spot in deeper IDP leagues only.
