Blake Jarwin - TEPosted 7/16/18 12:15pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin was regularly targeted by QB Dak Prescott during organized team activities this offseason, specifically in red-zone scenarios. Prescott praised Jarwin for his ability to get open and Jarwin said he's glad to have already developed some chemistry with Prescott.
Huddle Up: It's easy to be excited about a player in the offseason, but caution must be used. Jarwin will need to beat out Geoff Swaim and Rico Gathers for the starting tight end job. Even then, whoever takes over for Jason Witten will not be a reliable weekly fantasy starter.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 7/6/18 9:12pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for at least 80 yards in 23 of the 25 games he has played.
Huddle Up: When spending a top-five pick on a player, consistent production is as important as upside. Elliott's heavy workload as the focal point of the Dallas offense should ensure that he continues to provide both for fantasy owners.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 7/1/18 3:29pm ET
Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) does not appear to be a target for the Tennessee Titans, in the opinion of TitansOnline.com's Jim Wyatt.
Huddle Up: The Titans will be entering the season with Rishard Matthews and Corey Davis as their top receivers. Matthews is a solid contributor in the passing game and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver. Davis will look to bounce back in 2018 and has a chance to be a No. 3 receiver. Bryant is expected to sign with a team at some point during training camp and will have fantasy value as a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver.
Geoff Swaim - TEPosted 6/26/18 7:38am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim will likely see first-team repetitions in training camp.
Huddle Up: So Swaim has the chance to be the starting tight end for the Cowboys. Sounds like a fantasy sleeper, right? He has two catches for 25 yards in his career, and he caught 13 balls for 84 yards and a touchdown in 13 collegiate games at Texas. Look elsewhere for a late-round flyer.
Terrance Williams - WRPosted 6/14/18 10:04am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (foot) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
Huddle Up: Williams has a good opportunity to be fantasy relevant in a relatively weak wide receiver corps, although one could argue he's the fourth best receiver on his team from a fantasy perspective. Allen Hurns, Michael Gallup and Cole Beasley will see their fair share of targets, making Williams a late-round dart throw.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 6/10/18 1:36pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott should be in line for even more touches - especially in the passing game - following the departures of Jason Witten and Dez Bryant, according to John Machota of The Dallas Morning News.
Huddle Up: As long as Elliott stays healthy and out of trouble, he was always going to be a good bet to blow right past the 242 carries and 26 receptions he finished with in 2017. With Dallas reinforcing its offensive line in the offseason and losing its top two threats in the passing game, Elliott could push 50 catches in addition to the 300-plus carries he is almost certain to see. Owners should not hesitate taking him with a top-five pick this summer.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 6/10/18 7:04pm ET
Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) is 'most definitely' welcome on the Tennessee Titans roster, according to TE Delanie Walker. 'It's another element if they was to bring him to the team,' Walker said. 'If he can help us out, gladly I would welcome him with open arms.'
Huddle Up: Bryant joining the Titans doesn't seem likely, but if he does end up in Tennessee, it would definitely cap the upside of Corey Davis.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 6/9/18 10:53am ET
Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) probably will not be an option for the New England Patriots even if WR Julian Edelman is suspended for four games, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.
Huddle Up: The Patriots have receiver options on their roster if they lose Edelman for a few games. Chris Hogan and Jordan Matthews are probably the favorites to start at this point and will have fantasy value. Bryant is expected to wait until training camp to sign with a team and could be a No. 3 fantasy received depending on his role.
Rico Gathers - TEPosted 6/9/18 7:57pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Rico Gathers said he bulked up to 282 pounds in order to be more effective as a blocker. 'Now coming off, I'm delivering the blow,' Gathers said. 'I'm delivering the shot.'
Huddle Up: With Jason Witten retiring, this is Gathers' best chance to carve out a role in the Dallas offense. If you have been stashing him in a keeper league, continue to sit tight and see what happens.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 6/1/18 1:27pm ET
Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) is not expected to sign with a team until the start of training camp, according to sources. He has received interest from teams but is being patient and selective.
Huddle Up: Bryant likely will have to wait for an injury before he signs with a team. He has the ability to be a starting receiver for most teams, but his fantasy value will be determined by the role he receives with his new team. Owners can consider him a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on the team.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 5/28/18 2:16pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Allen Hurns is using two disappointing seasons in a row and grief from pundits about Dallas having the worst receiving corps in the league as motivation for 2018. 'Our room, we have a lot of guys who have a lot to prove. I like being in a room like that,' Hurns said. 'Each and every day we're going to go out there and push each other.'
Huddle Up: On paper the Cowboys do have one of the worst groups of wide receivers in the NFL, with Hurns being the No. 1 receiver. The departures of Dez Bryant and Jason Witten give Hurns and company a big opportunity to step in and succeed right away. He makes for a great value pick in the middle to late rounds right now.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 5/23/18 8:17pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he does not expect the Packers to sign free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) this offseason.
Huddle Up: Bryant has not received a lot of interest since being cut and rejected the only offer he has received. He may need to wait until training camp to sign with a team. He can still be a solid receiver and has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in 2018.
Rico Gathers - TEPosted 5/20/18 12:42pm ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Rico Gathers is a candidate to step up as the team's starting tight end, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.
Huddle Up: Due in part to Gathers' lack of football experience, Geoff Swaim will probably be the favorite to earn the most snaps at tight end in Dallas. But make no mistake about it, Gathers is the one Cowboys' pass-catcher who can be considered a matchup nightmare. If he can stay healthy this season - multiple head injuries sidelined him last year - he could make a strong case to win a job during the preseason.
Michael Gallup - WRPosted 5/13/18 8:47pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup said he is going to focus on running his routes and won't try to come in and replace WR Dez Bryant.
Huddle Up: It will be interesting to see who emerges as the go-to weapon for Dak Prescott this year, and Gallup certainly has a chance to make an early impact. He is worth a gamble in the later rounds of redraft leagues, and he is a worthwhile stash candidate in keeper formats.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 5/3/18 5:17am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten has informed the team he'll retire Thursday, May 3, and join ESPN as an analyst on Monday Night Football.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys are suddenly in the market for a tight end. Second-year project tight end Rico Gathers could receive a look in camp, but the team might have to bring in outside help.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 5/2/18 12:00pm ET
Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) has more teams not willing to pay him the league minimum salary than teams who are willing to sign him to any deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Bryant has already turned down a three-year, $21 million contract from the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Bryant indicated shortly after he was released that he would prefer playing with an NFC East team in order to exact revenge on the Cowboys. Wherever Bryant plays, his fantasy value resides in WR2 territory.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 4/29/18 4:55pm ET
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is trying to persuade TE Jason Witten to continue his playing career, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Witten is considering becoming a television analyst but has not made a final decision. Witten has been a solid fantasy option for several seasons and would be a No. 2 fantasy tight end if he decides to play in 2018.
Dalton Schultz - TEPosted 4/28/18 10:58am ET
The Dallas Cowboys selected Stanford TE Dalton Schultz with the 137th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys are expected to lose Jason Witten this offseason, so Schultz could have a decent role on offense in 2018. Owners should keep an eye on the situation because he could have some fantasy value depending on his role.
Mike White - QBPosted 4/28/18 12:24pm ET
The Dallas Cowboys picked Western Kentucky QB Mike White with the 171st overall pick (Round 5) in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: White was obviously drafted for depth with Dak Prescott still very young and the future. However, White will be a project, learning and developing just in case Prescott suffers some sort of injury down the road. No fantasy appeal here.
Cedrick Wilson - WRPosted 4/28/18 2:34pm ET
The Dallas Cowboys chose Boise State WR Cedrick Wilson with the 208th overall pick (Round 6) in the NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Wilson joins fellow Mountain West wideout Michael Gallup in Big D, and the two will be jockeying for position on the depth chart now. He is a player with some upside, but his numbers at the NFL Scouting Combine paled in comparison to Gallup, who was selected much earlier. He has a chance to make the roster, but he'll need to make rapid improvement.
Ryan Switzer - WRPosted 4/28/18 2:51pm ET
The Oakland Raiders acquired WR Ryan Switzer from the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday, April 28, in exchange for DE Jihad Ward.
Huddle Up: Switzer is a jack of all trades, but his biggest contribution to Oakland will be on special teams in the return game.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 4/28/18 9:18pm ET
Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) won't be pursued by the Buffalo Bills, according to general manager Brandon Beane. 'If we thought that was the right fit for us, we definitely would potentially pursue it,' Beane said.
Huddle Up: Bryant continues to look for a one-year, 'prove it' deal, and a motivated Bryant could rebound a bit wherever he ends up. At the very least, he should be a WR3 next year.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 4/27/18 9:15am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten is reportedly planning to announce his retirement from the NFL on Friday, April 27, in order to become ESPN's new Monday Night Football lead analyst, per sources. Witten will reportedly meet with team owner Jerry Jones before making his decision final, however, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
Huddle Up: Witten recently said he hoped he could play until he was 40, so ESPN must either have approached him with an offer he couldn't refuse or he had a serious changed of heart. Despite losing his speed long ago, he has been one of the league's most complete tight ends for his entire 15-year career - one which should earn him a trip to Canton five years now if he makes this official. His absence would leave a huge void in Dallas' offense - one the team may want to address when the draft resumes Friday night.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 4/27/18 12:48pm ET
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten 'will take some time to make a decision on his future' in regards to reports about announcing his retirement in order to become ESPN's new Monday Night Football lead analyst, according to team owner Jerry Jones.
Huddle Up: This has the feel of damage control - or the attempt of it - for the Cowboys, who really didn't need their hand forced to take a tight end on the second day of the draft, especially considering they have a screaming need at receiver. Rico Gathers' stock figures to spike in the coming days if Dallas doesn't land a blue-chip prospect, although the team is said to be high on Blake Jarwin as well.
Michael Gallup - WRPosted 4/27/18 7:02pm ET
The Dallas Cowboys selected Colorado State WR Michael Gallup with the 81st overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Gallup is a fast and he has some decent vertical ability. He'll be one of a handful of younger players tasked with replacing the departed Dez Bryant. Gallup is a player to watch during training camp and the preseason, but not necessarily someone to consider drafting in standard leagues just yet.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 4/25/18 6:12am ET
Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) is likely to sign after the NFL draft.
Huddle Up: Bryant has regressed a great deal the last few years, but he's still worthy of being a WR3 in fantasy.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 4/25/18 12:00pm ET
Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) turned down a multi-year deal from the Baltimore Ravens, according to former ESPN reporter Ed Werder. Bryant is seeking a one-year deal and an opportunity to earn a bigger contract as a free agent next year.
Huddle Up: Bryant would have been a good fit for the Ravens, but his logic is sound. We'll have to wait until after the draft to see where he lands, but should ideally be considered as a WR2.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 4/24/18 11:21pm ET
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said during a news conference Tuesday, April 24, that the team needed to 'move on knowing that we don't have' free-agent WR Dez Bryant. He also said the team would look to add a receiver during the draft but did not specify if they'd use an early-round selection.
Huddle Up: Given that the Cowboys released him -- reportedly without offering a pay cut -- this should come as no surprise. With the draft almost upon us it's unlikely we'll see Bryant signed before its conclusion. Depending on where he lands, Bryant could still hold significant fantasy appeal.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 4/23/18 3:21pm ET
Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) will not be signed by the Baltimore Ravens in light of the signing of WR Willie Snead, as expected.
Huddle Up: This was expected. Bryant may have to wait until at least draft weekend before he knows what colors he'll be wearing next. He has low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 status depending on where he plays.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 4/22/18 6:44pm ET
The Dallas Cowboys will try to make QB Dak Prescott more productive in 2018 by making some 'tweaks' to the offense, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.
Huddle Up: Prescott regressed last year after his impressive rookie campaign, and while he should have a full season of Ezekiel Elliott this time around, his receiving corps is full of question marks. He's a QB2 at this point.
