NFC East

Fantasy Impact: After sitting out Week 14's contest with an ankle injury against the Bears Thursday night, Pollard is expected to suit up for a crucial match-up against the Rams in Week 15. This will affect starting running back Ezekiel Elliott's usage a little bit, but nothing too serious from hurting his fantasy value at all. Pollard will just add an extra dimension to Dallas' rushing attack like he has throughout the year at times.

Dak Prescott suffered a sprained left hand and an injury to the right index finger on his right hand during Thursday's 31-24 loss at Chicago. (Source: Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Prescott injured his left hand and right finger in Thursday's loss to the Bears, but Cowboys Head Coach Jason Garrett expects Prescott to play in Week 15 against the Rams. Fantasy owners should monitor his practice status next week. Prescott threw for 334 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Thursday's Week 14 loss to the Bears.

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.

Cowboys kicker Brett Maher made one of his two field goal attempts and all three of his extra point tries in Thursday night's loss to the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact: The Cowboys held kicker tryouts this week after Maher missed two more field goals last week, so another miss on Thursday is not great for his chances of sticking around. The team will now have some time to think about what they want to do at the kicker position ahead of next week's matchup against the Rams.

The Dallas Cowboys D/ST allowed 31 points on 382 total yards in Thursday night's loss to the Bears in Chicago. They recorded two sacks, intercepted on pass, and recovered one fumble.

Fantasy Impact: The Dallas Cowboys D/ST forced two turnovers on Thursday after going four straight games without one, but that was about all that went right for the unit on Thursday. They were run over by what had a been a struggling Chicago offense and had no answers for the mobility of Mitch Trubisky. The Cowboys will now have some extra time to prepare for their Week 15 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams at home.

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.

Category: Game Recaps


Cowboys tight end Jason Witten caught five of his seven targets for 37 yards in Thursday's loss to the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact: Witten has racked up the targets this season, but they are all short passes for minimal yardage. Through 13 games, he has just 455 yards receiving on 53 receptions and has just one touchdown in his last 11 games.

Category: Game Recaps


Cowboys wide receiver Randall Cobb caught two of his five targets for 43 yards in Thursday's loss to the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact: After seeing at least seven targets in four straight games, Cobb has seen just eight targets combined over the last two weeks. With the Dallas offense struggling and Cobb serving as at least the third or fourth option in the passing game, he is hard to trust in fantasy playoffs matchups next week against the Rams.

Category: Game Recaps


Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup caught six of his 10 targets for a team-leading 109 yards in Thursday's loss to the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact: Gallup led the team in receiving on Thursday. night but failed to find the end zone for the fourth consecutive game. The good news for fantasy owners is that he has at least six targets in six straight games, with at least 10 targets in three of those games.

Category: Game Recaps


Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper caught six of his eight targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's loss to the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact: Cooper was mostly held in check on Thursday night, with much of his damage coming in the fourth quarter with Chicago nursing a large lead. His 19-yard touchdown reception salvaged his night from a fantasy perspective, and his touchdown was his first since Week 10 against the Vikings.

Category: Game Recaps


Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed rushed 19 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns and caught two of his five targets for 12 yards in Thursday's loss to the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact: Elliott was featured heavily on the team's long touchdown drive to start the game, but his usage wavered as the game went on with the Cowboys falling behind. He was held to 93 total yards on the day, but his two touchdowns made it a worthwhile performance for fantasy owners who are either already in the playoffs or are fighting for a chance to be in them.

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.

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


Sean Lee finished Thursday’s loss to the Bills with 12 tackles (nine solo). He stepped up in place of Leighton Vander Esch (neck).

Fantasy Impact: Lee is worth an add if Vander Esch were to miss any time. Lee has 57 tackles through Week 13 of the season.

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.

Tavon Austin took his lone carry for a 20 yard touchdown during Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Austin got in on the fun on Sunday Night Football, parlaying his lone touch (a carry) 20 yards for a touchdown. He saw one target in the passing game which he failed to haul in. Austin was a trendy option when Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb both appeared to be on the wrong side of questionable, but saw a limited workload with both receivers managing to suit up. Tavon was on the field for 20 percent of the team's snaps.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Cowboys OL Tyron Smith (ankle) is expected to play Week 7. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Smith is expected to play after missing the last two games with an ankle injury. With Smith up, the Dallas line could begin to play well again following their recent struggles.
