Fantasy Impact: Freeman will join a Cowboys’ backfield that does not have a clear cut starter. The veteran tallied 319 yards and two touchdowns on 77 carries with the Rams last season. Fantasy managers should expect Freeman to compete for the starting job in training camp.

Fantasy Impact: Lamb is waiting on a new contract that will replace his fifth-year option that he is set to play on this season. With Eagles’ WR Devonta Smith getting a new deal Monday, Lamb is likely to push even harder for a new deal before the start of the 2024 season.

Fantasy Impact: McCarthy also added that the team is not done with the room this offseason. After not landing a running back in free agency, the Cowboys figure to be one of the first teams to address the running back position during the NFL Draft next month.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott and the front office reportedly have a mutual understanding that an extension might not be coming this offseason, locking him in for a contract year in Dallas. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the two sides are "locked and loaded for this year," with Prescott set to become a free agent in 2025. With Prescott's current leverage (no-trade clause, can't be tagged, contract year), the Cowboys' only option was to give the veteran QB a top-end deal or let him test free agency. It's possible Prescott could command an elite deal next offseason, and even potentially from a new franchise.

The Cowboys have released WR Michael Gallup. (Source: Michael Gehlken on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The move is designated as a post-June 1 cut to save the team $9.5M in 2024 cap space. The Cowboys have been quiet in free agency as the team has limited cap space to work with, making this more necessary in order to fill needs at other positions.

Fantasy Impact: Armstrong is signing a three-year deal worth $45 million. He has 21 sacks and 108 tackles with 20 for a loss in his last three seasons. After six seasons with the rival Cowboys to begin his career, he will join a Washington defense that needs an infusion of talent following recent trades.

Fantasy Impact: Pollard is coming off his second consecutive 1,000 yard season with the Cowboys. The move will give the Titans a strong duo of Pollard and Tyjae Spears as they prepare for their first season without Derrick Henry. Pollard should remain a top fantasy running back option heading into the 2024 season.

Trey Lance has reportedly been rumored to be linked to the Vikings. (Source: Josh Norris on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is if Kirk Cousins decides to leave in free agency. Lance, who is from Minnesota, had his roster bonus picked up by the Cowboys. It is still likely a longshot to happen, but this could be something to monitor if Cousins signs with a new team.

Veteran OT Tyron Smith, a pending free agent, and the Dallas Cowboys are expected to part ways, with Smith set to be a free agent and "unlikely to return." (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Smith has spent 13 seasons in Dallas, starting 161 games while making five All-Pro teams and eight Pro Bowls. One of the best blindside protectors of his generation, Smith has struggled with health in recent years, playing 30 games over the last four seasons and playing 13 or fewer games in each of his previous eight seasons. Plenty of contenders could look to Smith, assuming he doesn't chase what could be the final major paycheck of his career.

The Cowboys D/ST allowed 10 points while picking up four sacks and forcing three turnovers in a 38-10 win over the Commanders in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact: Dallas dominated the Commanders as they held them to just 180 yards of total offense. They were led by Dante Fowler Jr., who had 1.5 sacks. Dallas will now prepare to face the Packers in next week's playoff game.

Brandon Aubrey made one of his three field goals and five extra points in a 38-10 win over the Commanders in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact: Aubrey came into the game perfect on his 35 field-goal tries but he had one of his field goals blocked by the Commanders in the first quarter. The rookie kicker wraps up his debut season with 36 field goals on 38 attempts while adding 49 extra points. He will kick against the Packers in next week's playoff game.

Jake Ferguson caught all six of his targets for 69 yards in a 38-10 win over the Commanders in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact: Ferguson finished off a breakout season with a solid game for the Cowboys. He seamlessly stepped in for Dalton Schultz, who left for the Texans in the offseason, and wound up catching 71 balls for 761 yards and five touchdowns. Ferguson will now get ready to face off against the Packers in next week's playoff game.

Brandin Cooks caught six of his eight targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in a 38-10 win over the Commanders in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact: Cooks wraps up his first season with the Cowboys with 54 catches for 657 yards and eight touchdowns. Cooks got off to a slow start with the Cowboys over the first month of the season but he settled in nicely as the team's No. 2 receiver as the year went on. Cooks will now prepare to take on the Packers in next week's playoff game.

Cowboys' coach Mike McCarthy said Tyler Smith “has a chance” to play Sunday at Commanders despite a complete tear to his plantar fascia. (Source: Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McCarthy added that Smith is still sore. He could be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Commanders.

Category: Injury Updates

Jalen Tolbert hauled in his lone target for nine yards in the Cowboys' 20-19 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Tolbert continues to be a non-factor as part of the Dallas offense, finishing with two receptions or less in each of his last five games for the Cowboys. The wideout is a difficult option to trust ahead of a Week 18 matchup against the Washington Commanders.
